    True. I also feel bad for the family of the 22 year old girlfriend who was killed because of this selfish bastard.

    Suicide- long term solution to short term problems.
    I look forward to hearing what might have caused this. Was it a crime of passion, did he have traumatic brain injury?
    I like the cartoon tho. The infant and the families of the mother and father are the enduring victims of this tragedy.
    Respectfully,

    I’ve been sickened by much of the coverage of these events. Seems that many people want to seek excuses for his actions and memorialize this murderer.

    Rationalization and excuses are our national substitutes for soul-searching and self-criticism.

    Your name says it all. Why was it necessary to bring politics into this one way or another? That baby lost both of her parents and her grandparents also lost their children. That kind of pain affects people no matter what their political affiliation. Have some respect for that and save your political opinions for an appropriate place and time.

    I never understand why a person feels the need to kill another then take their own life. If you are feeling that depressed, get some help. If you can’t deal with the world and feel you must take your own life, leave everybody else out of it. It is not for you to make that decision for someone else. No excuses.

    I’ve spent some time thinking on this, and a thought occurred to me- we treat football players (and others who play similarly violent sports) the same way we treat our soldiers. We want to see them go out and destroy the “enemy”, but that requires them to put themselves in harm’s way in return- and we can’t justify our bloodlust while thinking of our modern-day gladiators as flesh-and-blood, feeling human beings.
    So we stop thinking of them as human beings. They become machines in our minds- they go out and execute our will, satisfy our urges to vicariously be the victor. But then something will inevitably happen to destroy that fragile illusion, and we simply don’t know how to reconcile ourselves with this shocking hit from reality. So we look for rationalizations, we look for excuses, we look for any avenue we can take to get away from the core truth: “This is the logical end result of our beliefs and actions, what comes to be when you stop treating a person like a human being”.
    Because if we did face that core truth, we’d have to finally deal with just how horrible people we are because of it.

    @the wolf:

    Well said. We have a large, unmentioned problem with service members and domestic abuse. Hey, when you teach a person how to hurt another for a living, why are we surprised that they practice their training at home?

    (Please no stuff about not supporting the troops. My wife used to work Service to Military for American Red Cross, and it’s just a statement of fact. My way to support the troops: don’t send them to fight with no reason and no goal.)

    But the sports world is even more forgiving: for example, Dez Bryant of the Cowboys beat up his own mother. But it’s okay, he can catch a pass, so we can look the other way.
