I Blame the... Amish?

Tell me, if you please, precisely what kind of 20-year-old offense could have been committed against 32-year-0ld Pennsylvania truck driver Charles Carl Roberts VI that could only be assuaged by murdering four children who were strangers to him, before taking his own life. Was he kicked in the shins by an Amish grade schooler when he was in junior high?

The scary part about this is that I can definitely see how it happens. Someone I know said to me this weekend that he wanted to go to his 30-year high school reunion and kick the ass of the class bully who had tormented him when they were teens. This man is now approaching fifty. Fifty. And he hasn't yet gotten past the fact that someone was mean to him in high school.

Spilt milk, folks. Spilt freakin' milk.

Human beings scare the bejeebers out of me.
