Watching the BC news is so hard lately

Robert Pickton, pig-farmer, charged with 26 counts of murder of women from the Downtown Eastside is starting to finally face charges for 6 of these murders.

It's your usual story, scores of women go missing from the poorest part of the city, and not until years later they finally catch the person. He says he's innocent, but they found the remains of some of these women on his pig farm. (Pigs eat people.) These women were prostitutes, drug addicts, but in a nicer way the news are highlighting every single one of the women and talking about their lives and treating them like victims and letting their names be heard, not just his. As the trial goes on, I'll have more and more to say about this, but right now I'm just really sad, tired, and sick.

I don't know if I can handle listening to this every night for the next six months! There's a new gory headline every day.
