Bad and Sad Events

I used to work at this strip club. It's a nice place that had been run by the same family for twenty-five years, it's shocking to think of someone getting shot there.

And, this is horrible. Some thug murdered a man in Barnstable by tying them to a tree and setting them on fire. I can't think of a punishment bad enough for whoever had a hand in it, and I get all hot and angry just typing this.

In the Day household, we're speculating that it was a hate crime. No one does a sick thing like this unless they're trying to send a message. It could be anti-gay, it could also be anti-minority. There's some anti-Brazilian sentiment on Cape and I wonder if this poor kid was a Brazilian tortured by racists.
