What's scaring you in the news lately?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Blowing Bubbles : One Thread

Are there stories that make you freak out when you turn on the news or open your local paper these days?

Besides the upcoming elections for you Americans, that is...

I always get freaked out by these "if you love someone, set them free, if they come back they are yours forever, if they don't then KILL THEM" stories. They make me think back to my own ex-boyfriends and wonder if any of them were ever close to being that off-balanced, and i worry.

Freaky shit.

Well what scares me is the sight of the "mobs" on the street here taking young children round, "protesting" against what they say are child molesters living on estates. They have set fire to cars on the street outside the homes of those they either have actual information against and some that other local people SAY were offenders. I would understand if they went to protest to the council that owned the estates but terroising innocent neighbours of those they suspect scares me also they way they treat their own children.
