Mindy McCready Commits Suicide
2013-02-18 by andcas | 126 Comments

Mindy McCready has reportedly taken her own life with a self-inflicted gunshot wound at her Arkansas home. The country singer had a fruitful musical career in the late 90’s but fizzled out due to a string of personal demons. She had recently been battling the passing of boyfriend David Wilson who was a recording producer that met the same fate.

The grief caused McCready to enter rehab where she attempted to recover from a long withstanding drug addiction. Unfortunately the dark path of previous suicide attempts and run-ins with the law were apparently too much to bear. She leaves behind two sons and a sense of what could’ve been had circumstances played out differently in the end.

meanwhile most of the "glad she's dead" people here moralizing about a suicide victim killing their pet probably eat meat from factory farms where animals are routinely crammed into dark warehouse-like conditions and treated cruelly for their entire lives. kneejerk reactions prevail

And yeah, I have a bias because have dedicated my life to getting dogs out of abusive situations where they are beaten and killed for no reason in the south by people of supposedly sound mind.

We eat cows and pigs because we have been doing so for ages. We don't eat dogs because we have chosen them for companions for ages. The only reason we aren't chowing down on a golden retriever now is because of us.

I have dealt with that pit bull stigma firsthand, and until pretty recently, that stereotype was everywhere, until rescues started specifically focusing on finding pit bulls homes.
