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.
