Soooo, this is easily the most terrifying news of the year.
I guess it’s also pretty terrifying to think about a man murdering a woman and then just eating a hot dog at a hockey game years later as if he didn’t take another human beings life away but we can discuss the psychology of a sociopath some other time.
Whenever I watch a show like True Detective, I always think to myself that these TV cops are trying
We are dangerously close to a Minority Report future where people are just minding their own business at home only to have Tom Cruise kick their front door in and arrest them for a crime BEFORE they commit it.
Not sure if this is ethical or not but a murderer was arrested so that’s good or whatever. All I know is that I am never throwing out a napkin ever again. You want my DNA, you’re going to have to take it directly out of my mouth yourself (ladies).
