My theory is that a lot of people are scared by the idea that a virus this bad could just come out of nature and that it would only take a couple people bad at their jobs to make it momumentally worse, to them the idea that people are planning the whole thing is comforting. They already know people are evil and that… Read more
Also worth noting: the woman in this situation was pregnant.
Whatever the problems between the adult partners (and, again, he should’ve called the police if she was throwing things at him—and he should’ve acted to get their two present children out of harm’s way), the unborn child neither instigated nor deserved the… Read more
