That's just some of the casualties of the past couple weeks. It's getting ugly out there. People are getting to the point where they feel hopeless. I believe that it's not people who have felt hopeless for a long time who do these things, but people who have recently found themselves that way, are totally perplexed by their situation and see no other way out. They take all their anger and rage out on society the only way they can figure out how. Imagine someone cruising through life with a decent job, getting by ok and making ends meet. They have amassed small amounts of material goods, maybe a house, some responsibility toward their family but basically still living from paycheck to paycheck like millions of Americans and then WHAM! It's all pulled out from under them. Nothing left in a few short weeks.
Now, granted, it takes a fucking sociopathic moron to drop down to such horrid levels of behavior, but how many people with sociopathic minds are out there?
They say that sociopathic minds go in two direction. . . a very tiny fraction of a percent of them become serial killers, serial rapists and like minded violent felons. The rest get into professions where a total insensitivity to human emotion and compassion are a positive attribute. According to a report I recently saw on the human brain, high level business executives are very often sociopathic people. Sales people such as those in vehicle sales who will sell a car to anyone at any cost are often sociopathic. My point being, it's not just the confirmed violent offenders who are sociopathic and capable of gross heartless misconduct. Afterall, how many times have we read or heard the neighbors say "he seemed like a quiet fellow who would never do such a thing." How many times will we be hearing those words again as our markets continue to shrink and the human toll mounts?
