bm123 Tony Pierce on Blogs, Mental Health, and more.

Flattr this!

Ever since the dawn of the blog era, anytime someone commits a terrible crime and they are bloggers, there is always alot of attention given to that persons writing. Some say it should be taken down and destroyed along with the person. While others see a chance for we the people to read and understand for ourselves, through a previously unknown doorway into the mind.
My friend Tony Pierce of busblog, buzznet, and thoughtmechanics, joins me from Los Angeles to discuss the case of Kevin Underwood, blogger who murdered a little girl in Oklahoma, and what his blog might tell us about how this all came about, and maybe how spot the signs that someone needs help, before it is too late.
