Carry That Weight

What a messed-up world this is. Let me vent...

Let's talk about Jessie Davis...
They found Jessie. And her married boyfriend is charged with the deed.
How can they give this "rogue officer" who is accused of murdering her and her unborn child $5 million bond? They should have remanded bond, isn't it standard procedure for a murder case?! Yes, he's a fricking cop... he's held to a higher standard than the rest of us. And a two-year old boy is left without his baby sister & mommy and Patty Porter has to outlive her child. This is an unfortunate happening. Which brings me to...

Chris, Nancy, and Daniel
I'm sure that for all you wrestling fans, like myself, June 25, 2007 was a sad day in the wrestling world. Earlier that day, WWE wrestler Chris Benoit, his wife Nancy, and 7-year-old son Daniel were found dead in their suburban Atlanta home. An AP report had Nancy in her office, their child in his bedroom, and Benoit was found hung in the weight room. Based on that, the case has been ruled a murder-suicide. We may never know what really happened to Benoit and his family; we're only going by the police rulings. Maybe Benoit did take out his family and take his own life afterwards, forever tarnishing his wrestling legacy. I don't know. Remember, we don't know. And whether we do or not is not the point, at least to me.

I'm going to try to focus on the sadness of the fact that one family is gone, and two more have been torn apart. The unfortunate truth is that there was a lot of things in these situation sthat possibly could have been avoided... neither instance should have come to this. Because it did, Jessie Davis and the Benoit family have been reduced to another goddamn statistic.

God bless Jessie Davis.
God bless Jessie's baby.

God bless Daniel Benoit.
God bless Nancy Benoit.
God bless Chris Benoit.
May they rest in peace.
