And the lynching mob that blindly screams death death death at every tragic news story involving a blameable victim. However evil they consider killing, this same evil is in one sentence considered the greatest good, the best response to such tragedy. Murderers are Evil. The Evil should be Murdered.
How on earth do you believe this will make the situation any better. I mean, the man isn’t even your typical evil psychopath, or he would simply not have cared about his wife and family finding out.
Nobody even knows the story behind this - maybe the woman blackmailed him, demanded him to do things for her, support her, or whatever, or else she would tell his family. Maybe this had been going on for a long time, and the man got completely tangled up in a mess of emotions till he finally snapped. Maybe the woman had good reasons to do so, too, single mom, tough making it through the week, no friends, little welfare, bad job, lonely, whatever.
Thousands of different possibilities, and all the mob screams is for ways to make it even worse. Instead, why not simply teach people to deal with emotions, to accept imperfections, allow for mistakes, and to deal with problems before they get completely out of hand? Yes, you can blame society for such failures. And a society that suggests death is sometimes the best solution, especially if it makes you feel better, imho sets a bad example.
Pro-Lifers, the State of Texas, those in favor of the Death Penalty, Mr. Blue Sky and FinnAgain, consider yourself pitted. I’m sure you’re not going to be impressed at all, but it’s probably as close to the real meaning of justice as you’re ever going to get.
yes this rant is partly inspired by some lame idiot in the Netherlands suggesting we should reintroduce the death penalty, just because he things it might win him some votes
