The CT shooting didn't shock me, THIS shocked me

As peo­ple all over the nation reel from the mur­ders or more accu­rately sui­cide by mass mur­der I wish I could say I was shocked by it. I’m not and nei­ther should you be. Given the cul­tural changes of the last 50 years and the spate of young and teenage sui­cides that sim­ply weren’t going on when I was young one can’t be sur­prised by this unless they haven’t been pay­ing attention.

But this, THIS sur­prised me:

It was meant to be a day of mourn­ing, but parish­ioners inside a Catholic Church here had their fears renewed Sun­day when a bomb threat forced a mid-​morning evac­u­a­tion and a SWAT team con­verged and sur­rounded a rectory.

The threat, which came dur­ing morn­ing ser­vices, was “a men­ac­ing call that threat­ened to dis­rupt the Mass in a vio­lent way,” said Brian Wal­lace, a spokesman for the local diocese.

That another young man with noth­ing in his heart and lit­tle in his head has decided to com­mit sui­cide by mass mur­der is no shock, that while the bod­ies of the kids are still unburied some­body actu­ally called in a bomb threat to the church where peo­ple are try­ing to cope and grieve, that’s sim­ply incredible.

I can almost under­stand the con­cept of a non-​entity either embrac­ing or try­ing to purge his demons by mak­ing him­self per­ma­nently are part of the lives of the fam­i­lies he has destroyed but I sim­ply can’t wrap my head around the sub­se­quent bomb threat.

My fear when hear­ing about this was an accom­plice hop­ing to drive peo­ple into a killing zone, hear­ing that the killer made a point of try­ing to dis­able his PC made me wonder.

What kind of per­son does this? What do they gain in sat­is­fac­tion I think they sim­ply like watch­ing peo­ple already griev­ing dance?

Every time I think our cul­ture has gone as low as it can go, it’s man­ages to sur­prise and dis­gust me just a lit­tle more.

As people all over the nation reel from the murders or more accurately suicide by mass murder I wish I could say I was shocked by it.  I’m not and neither should you be.   Given the cultural changes of the last 50 years and the spate of young and teenage suicides that simply weren’t going on when I was young one can’t be surprised by this unless they haven’t been paying attention.

But this, THIS surprised me:

It was meant to be a day of mourning, but parishioners inside a Catholic Church here had their fears renewed Sunday when a bomb threat forced a mid-morning evacuation and a SWAT team converged and surrounded a rectory.

The threat, which came during morning services, was “a menacing call that threatened to disrupt the Mass in a violent way,” said Brian Wallace, a spokesman for the local diocese.

That another young man with nothing in his heart and little in his head has decided to commit suicide by mass murder is no shock, that while the bodies of the kids are still unburied somebody actually called in a bomb threat to the church where people are trying to cope and grieve, that’s simply incredible.

I can almost understand the concept of a non-entity either embracing or trying to purge his demons by making himself permanently are part of the lives of the families he has destroyed but I simply can’t wrap my head around the subsequent bomb threat.

My fear when hearing about this was an accomplice hoping to drive people into a killing zone, hearing that the killer made a point of trying to disable his PC made me wonder.

What kind of person does this? What do they gain in satisfaction I think they simply like watching people already grieving dance?

Every time I think our culture has gone as low as it can go, it’s manages to surprise and disgust me just a little more.
