I'm watching this on the news right now. People are fucked up. It's weird to think about how you can get killed in the blink of an eye, for absolutely no reason.
People aren't born fucked up and without getting into a massive discussion about this though murder is never justified in any circumstance a lot could have happened to those men to lead them to the events that followed. This is preventable. A few years ago I thought of columbine. I even told my counselor and got reported because of it.
School was and even though I haven't been back for awhile still is very hard for some people. You're forced to go to a place full of people who say terrible things to you day in and day out while no one takes you seriously.
One of the reasons these things continue to happen is because of people like you who just go "People are so fucked up" without questioning why people do these atrocious acts. Sure, it's safe to think that you could never imagine what it's like to think like a killer or a rapist or someone of that nature but we need to grow the fuck up and investigate what makes people this way and how we can prevent it.
Again, it's bears repeating; I don't condone columbine or even think it's at all ok on a personal level, no exceptions. Please try to see where I'm coming from.
