This is just so sad

I mean, all murder cases are sad, but I just wrote up the story of Racine Lamour Taliaferro‘s disappearance and murder and boy am I depressed right now.

I mean, here’s a nice-looking young woman who obviously cared a lot about her appearance, with the makeup and jewelry and hair and everything, as evidenced by her Facebook page. And she winds up dating this dirt bag, a member of a whole CLUB of dirt bags with official dirt bag rules like “our girlfriends are our property,” and this was her whole downfall.

I’m sure that dirt bag had abused her many times before he murdered her; there must have been a lot of pain hiding behind that smile. I wonder if he gave her that scar on her arm.

Racine deserved so much better than to be that dirt bag’s, or anyone’s “property.” She deserved better than to die choking and coughing up blood before she was even out of her twenties.

At the very least she deserves a grave where the people who really loved her can visit. And she doesn’t even have that.

    Second paragraph, change disappearance to appearance. I know that’s nerdy, but I had to read that sentence a couple of times…

    👍 I read all of your posts, Meaghan. Sometimes ones like this really get to us, though.

    Couldn’t agree more. Hard to get out of this kind of situation, so don’t get in!!
