Pickle Me This

September 15, 2006

Curious

I am curious as to why the recent shooting in Montreal has provoked debate once again about bullying in schools, the social ostracization of young people, and what would drive one to become such a monster. The murderer was twenty-five years old, an age at which a person would normally take responsibility for their own behaviour. There is no excuse for what he did; I refuse to sympathize with this fully grown man stuck in a pathetic prolonged adolescence. High school is tough, but I’ve found that there is a place for almost everybody in adulthood (frighteningly so, sometimes) and that when one can’t find their own way, society isn’t always the problem.
