To ALL of you whom have said anything remotely resembling the remarks of "Well, he was abused" or ANYTHING excusing his behaviour, I want to make something extremely clear: All of us - WITHOUT exception - who grew up in abuse, regardless of mental, physical or emotional - have the ability to make a simple choice: Be a product of our upbringing or survive and rise above it.
I don't care what it takes, be it therapy, outside support or just inner strength: We make choices each and every day. I survived. I never, in a million years, would have ever gone through with killing anyone, no matter my hatred. I made that choice.
This young man made the choice that too many make: that people will forgive because, poor thing, he was abused. Well, that's a load of garbage. In this day & age, there are way too many resources to let something like hatred get to this point.
Shame on you all for justifying such a horrific choice. No one seems to appreciate life anymore.
