Another day, another senseless shooting.

A WDBJ (Roanoke, Virginia) television reporter and her cameraman were shot to death LIVE on the air this morning. Jesus fucking Christ. And the sick fuck who did it (a disgruntled former station employee) also filmed the shooting himself and posted it on Twitter and Facebook.

This hits too close to home for me for three reasons- it's my home state, I have a friend in the area, and my nephew works for a news station in Richmond. My sister must be flipping out right now, and I don't blame her.

I'm really sick of this shit.

ETA, a month later, because I just found this out- Sam's station was under lockdown that day because one of his co-workers was on the killer's hit list.
