I think it's more like this kind of craziness has always been going on, but it's a lot easier to hear about it these days. You wouldn't hear about a lot of these weird/shocking stories outside of their local areas if it wasn't for the Internet. I think there are a lot of f***ed up people out there and always have been, and the information age has just shined the spotlight on them.
