From Sasquatch to serial killers, our week-end lunchtimes are dedicated to documentaries. A few weeks ago, we watched the infamous show about the guy who went from killing kittens to killing people online.
The documentary is very well done, it unveils the entire story of an internet killer in a TV show fashion, building up a suspense that makes you wanna watch the next episode.
If you haven’t seen it yet, I really advise you to do so before reading what comes next, because it contains spoilers.
While there was a lot of WTF moments in the show, I couldn’t help but feeling sorry for Luka. He’s a pure product of modern society. Singled out from his youth, brainwashed by TV in a world where fame is all, his barriers between good and evil completely blurred out until he lived in a movie of his own.
On the other side, you have a bunch of no-lifers, thrill seekers who dedicated their time hunting him down. You see them crying when they watch Luka’s videos but they wake up in the middle of the night to watch them, out of a morbid curiosity that’s probably their only source of emotions.
I don’t know who is worse in the story, Luka because he armed pets and people or them because they enabled him.
Anyway, Luka went down, but he did it in style while the internet police only looked like lonely and sad people.
