I find true crime fascinating. Getting into a killer's mind can be terrifying but oh so fascinating. I'm not much one for Law & Order or CSI. I tend to read true crime non-fiction and the procedural true crime series. Basically, I like real crime instead of fake crime. I know the crime dramas steal from the headlines, but they somehow seem like a second cousin to the true event.
I've been watching a lot of true crime lately. I think I maxed out on my dosage and will wean myself off of it for a while. There was the woman who cut a baby out of a pregnant woman because she wanted a baby. Then there was the 15 year old boy who killed the 13 year old boy, dismembered his body, and threw it down the sewer. Then there was the guy who strangled a woman in a hotel room, went out at 3am to buy a suitcase, put her body in it, and then tossed it into the dumpster. He did this years prior to another woman as well. Then there was the college kid who took out a hit man to kill his parents and sister. Then there were some more "normal" murders arising from jealousy.
After watching these, I wonder why I'm down on people. Hmmm?
Then there was that horrible murder nearby where I live with the guy who was a prime suspect in his wife's disappearance who blew up his kids.
I think it's time to watch some stand-up comedy or something a little bit less depressing.
