James Armstrong is live Tweeting the Tori Stafford murder trail and wrote a post called "Tweeting from the Rafferty Murder Trail" about his experience which is well worth a read.
I have to say, as a Mother of a 16 year old daughter, and a 3 year old and as someone who worked with the amazing Leslie Parrot, mother to Alison, this story has actually kept me up at night. I find myself conflicted as to what I want to know as a human being, what I should know as a parent and what I should just stop myself from reading.
Armstrong said this:
In a real time world, we are now in a situation of facing real time decisions. What is right to one person, is completely wrong for another.
For those who work as social strategists, they often tell clients to use common sense, but there is nothing common about any of this.
