Spree Killings

I just felt a need to discuss this for a moment since we had a spree killing yesterday, an attempted spree killing on Sunday, and the 17 year-old going on a spree in Germany today.

I find these very disturbing. Yes, I sure most people do. The main reason that I feel the need to get this off my chest today, is that I suspect we will see more of this kind of thing. I don't think that this is an isolated set of incidents, but something symptomatic of the economic circumstances that we find ourselves in at this point in history.

There are always the occasionally spree killing, but I can't remember see so many in unrelated 'venues' in a short period of time. If the world economy doesn't begin to show signs of improvement soon, we will probably see more of these sorts of things. I really hope that I am wrong, but I just see the trend toward a violent outburst as getting worse as the economy gets worse.
