When I see things like this, I feel a certain hopelessness. It makes me feel that at bottom we really are just brutal animals, ready to claw at each other and tear each other apart. This group of teenage girls kidnapped and then viciously attacked a 16 year old peer because she wrote something they didn't like on myspace. As payback they videotaped themselves beating her in the hopes of making a popular internet video. The irony is they succeeded. But now they are all facing punishment, as they should. Very sad.
