When A Fatal Tragedy Offers Life To Another, People Are Still Idiots

The tragedy in Arizona shows how far our country has spiraled down in this instance. The youngest victim, Christina Green, was an organ donor. It was reported that some of her organs were donated to a young girl near Boston. (Original news article here.)

The amazing thing to me about this article is that the parents of this young girl even had the thought process, in their grief, to think about the good their dead daughter's organs would be for another person. I can't imagine the pain of the loss of a child. I'm not sure I could have thought coherently enough myself if I were the parent in this case. My grief may not have allowed it.

This news article has sparked thousands of comments. Many wonderful supportive comments. Sadly, just as many evil sadistic comments from uneducated animals. It's appalling to see the venom and stupidity spewed by so many people. Below are just a few of the comments I've run across (My commentary follows in italics):

1) With this little girl being killed at 9 years of age, means she will have a much smaller carbon foot print then she would have had had she lived a full life.

Like it or not your children's air will be a little cleaner because of the death of Christiana Green.

Personally I'm hoping I never meet this person. The air they spew has to be among the foulest of human kind with the way they think.

2) That child should have been in school instead of attending a political rally.

Another mental giant here. Saturday isn't a school day.

3) Jared Loughner did us two favors by taking out a corrupt politician now and a corrupt politician of the future.

The death of an innocent child is considered a favor?

4) Everyone has to die.

Um, you first?

5) ...and next, the parents are going to petition the church and attempt to make her a saint! Honestly, I'm tired of hearing about this kid. She was a 9 year old who was brainwashed by her parents into attending a liberal rally and thinking that it's ok to steal money from hardworking people and give it away to people who don't want to work. She would have grown up and leached off the government just like all the other liberals. 

Please just put her to rest already so we don't have to hear about what a martyr she was!

Ah yes, someone who can see into the future and predict how a nine year old girl would have lived her life. I thought Cleo was off the air for many years until now.

6) This 9-year-old, little piece of disturbed junk got what she was asking for, and I'm glad she was killed. After all, she brought it on herself by not wearing a bulletproof vest to the Giffords event! What nut refuses to wear a vest to such an event? Oh my gosh! She may as well have just shot herself. For that stupidity of not expecting the impossible occurrence of encountering a shooter, this little punk paid with her life, which is good. That should teach all other 9-year-olds about thinking ahead of time a little bit more.

The question should be what nut carries around a gun and kills people. Using this person's logic (logic being used loosely here) we all should be wearing bullet proof vests when out in public. There is no "good" when a child is murdered moron.

7) Awesome!

"Aspiring politician" hahaha. sure that ugly loser would have gotten anything in her life just because she was born on 9/11. most of you idiots would have voted for her. so thanks, Jared, for preventing a real tragedy that could have happened!

Look in the mirror when you're hankering to see ugly asshole.

8)  she's in a better place, a cold, damp coffin. thank you god.

I can't even respond to this one.

There are hundreds of comments like the above ones, or worse, in response to this article. It's unbelievable the depravity of people.


Dazee Dreamer said...

omg, those just horrified me. I'm in tears every time I think about all of those that were murdered that day, but for people like that to say horrible things about a child are just wrong.

Karma baby, and I want to be driving that bus!!!!!

This makes me so terribly sad. It frightens me to know that these are actual people so full of hatred they can justify the senseless death of a 9 year old girl. So today, in the wake of this tragedy and in honor of the great MLK I will hold my head high and speak for what I believe in. I will listen when others speak as long as they pay me the same courtesy. And I will not allow the negativity of others to influence my daily life. Thank you for sharing this.

I am too stunned by the stupidity
and horror of these comments to comment.

Unfortunately, the internet gives cowards anonymity.

Kev D. said...

Number 6 sounds like he was making fun of the people that would write insane comments like the others you posted.

Even if it was an attempt at humor, was it funny?

No absolutely not.

The rest are just
a) evil
b) twelve years old
3) stupid
f) Sarah Palin
iv) hopefully in jail

That is so, so sad. Like Dazee said, karma. I wish people would understand how hurtful that stuff is to the families.

It's hard to accept that people like this even breathe the same air as you and me. What sick, vicious and small minded idiots. And yet they live and the good ones die way too early. Is this hell?

ChiTown Girl said...

I have no words...

Mrs Midnite said...

JPT, this just makes me sad, sad that it could happen and sad the people can respond in such a way.

Venom said...

Such cretins deserve no heed - and yet they always feel the need to speak...
How sad their lives must be that they seek this kind of attention, that they reveal themselves to the world as having no compassion. If Karma exists, someday they will know first hand the incredible cruelty of their words on top of indescribable pain.

When people start talking like that, I can easily believe that the good old U.S.of A. is going straight down the tubes. When anyone rejoices in the death of a child in the name of politics, it can be understood as nothing less than advocating violent war. Sadly, I see America on the verge of tearing itself to pieces with hatred.

Sarahf said...

People are sick, sometimes. How can they say such things about the death of a little girl?

blueviolet said...

I am so sickened that there are people in the world who think that way.

gaijinwife said...

Wow, I'm in shock. That's disgusting. Unbelievably disturbing.

Jaimie said...

I had to read this to my hubby. he was just as equally appalled ... disgusting.

The Reckmonster said...

And to think these miscreants walk amongst us...and breed. SUPER SCARY.

I don't understand this world sometimes! People are just miserable and angry and misguided. I don't even know what to say.
