All of them.
There is a whole other world out there I can only imagine and dread in my nightmares.
My existence seems mundane and inconsequential by comparison to some of horrid shit that goes on out there. God forbid I actually think of myself as normal, but really.
There’s something horribly rotten in the state of Arkansas.
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — An Arkansas man who was convicted of possessing child pornography was arrested again for the same crime in May.
According to the Washington County Sheriff’s Officer, 35-year-old Joshua Box was arrested for possessing thousands of images and videos of minors, who were nude and engaging in sexually explicit conduct.
He is also accused of possessing a hard drive that contained pornographic images of minors under the age of 12, according to KHBS.
Court documents also showed that Box was having contact with a 17-year-old, which is against his probation.
The sheriff’s office said Box was evaluated after his previous conviction of possessing child pornography, and it was determined that he was in the medium risk category to re-offend.
He is due back in court on August 7.
What in the actual fuck?
I’m reminded of a quasi sci-fi story I’ve batted around for a while. It takes place (in the not-so-distant-future) in a dystopian world where we have garnered the tools of genetic engineering so adeptly that we are able to alter a person’s appearance in the matter of days. One of the byproducts of said technology concerns the ruthless scales of justice. In this future world, we genetically engineer the appearance of convicted criminals to match the abhorrent monstrosity of their crime, in a proportional degree.
Child killers would be modified to look like slimy ogres who can only slither around like snails. Shoplifting convicts might have a vague tweak which makes their nose look cartoonishly askew. Nothing too bad.
Anyway, this dude, Joshua Box, looks the result of my futuristic fictional punitive hell.
