3. So sad.

Its so easy for people to slip between the cracks (ever more each day). And once they're on the street they become non persons, regardless of the bright futures they were once capable of. This is an extreme story, and no doubt the media will focus on the bizarre circumstances of the crime committed. But the real crime is committed by a society who turns a blind eye to the homeless, nameless and (and no pun intended) faceless, silent and desperate, because they are "worthless", "beyond help" and "burden" to those who are more fortunate. A society of self absorbed consumers is all to quick to race blindly forward, while consigning yesterdays obsoletes to the trash heap.
