A livestreamer was robbed while she was streaming today, and luckilly noone was harmed in the process, and the police are on the case.
Besides that though, videos were posted to youtube of this happening, and of course as a result the hordes of commenters have done their thing..
When I read these comments all I could think of was the Humanity mechanic in dark souls, where if you die, you lose part of your humanity – Eventually becoming a mindless undead.
In the game, Human Effigies return you to being a human. These people need that.
