The murder of the basket ball player, supposedly for fun, and the comment about losing faith in humanity.....think about that for a moment. "Humanity" and all that the thought and definition holds, what in "humanity" deserves "faith". What is the evidence that humanity is in a position deserving any kind of faith. What is faith anyway? When you use the term what are your definitions. That part of humanity that produced Hitler, Pol Pot, Stalin, Jeffery Dahmer? I suggest some visits with famous misanthropes, starting with H.L. Mencken, Florence KIng, etc. Maybe you can be more focused if you define it as "faith in good humanity". Goodness, like evil, often lies hidden in a secret heart and erupts in the most unlikely places and times. Goodness, in the form of courage, erupts in acts of heroism and sacrifice. Evil erupts all around us, in all forms, and breaks our heart. We contemplate its purpose and are saddened. Evil is erupting, as also is good, from the hearts of humans. Humanity, in such a broad term deserves no out of context "faith". Look for it somewhere else.
