10/3: 3 Copycat Killers

The news today is that a 32 year old milkman walked into an Amish school, and killed 3 girls and then himself, and that he called his wife and told her that he was getting revenge for an incident that had happened 20 years ago.

20 years ago. Before his victims had even been born.

I have no problem with people killing themselves. If life is so unbearable that death is the only way out, so be it. But why, why, why take innocent people with you? Why not go after your local neighborhood drug dealer? Ram your car through some prison gates and take out a few rapists and murderers... then there might be a chance you could be hailed as a misguided hero instead of a despicable loon.
