is a hard one to read and only provoking very intense, sad and outrage feelings out of us all. He is/was obviously seriously sick and needed Mental Help long ago in his childhood, and went unnoticed. I doubt his problem was anxiety or similar disorders delt with on this website. (That might be a reason for some of you to protest seeing this story linked to this website). His problem was more aggressive (than anxiety or panic) on him and later on, on those he met.
But, suffering and struggling in field of mental problems or disorders yourself, how would you prosecute this young man, who does not seem to have any chance in his life, anymore anyway? What would you, if given a chance to be a juror, ask for punishment? I have a girl and a boy myself, (the only sense of my life) and a family members strugling with disorders described and being helped with, on this website.
Considering my family, I am being torn appart in my thoughts about crimes like this, that do come as a result of people struggling personaly for a long time and hiding it. Eventually they reach personal limmit and can not hide it anymore. And then:... they snap.
This community (PS) is a great community that promotes help to those in need for help with their mental un-easiness. When we notice something out of ordinary on us or on those around us, we better get at least a friend acknowledged. Help of this sort can only be offered if asked for. Alternative is not pretty.
Two (all three) close families in this case are going to mourn for the life time. All world is astonished by what he did. This boy (could be my son by his age) was not helped when he needed help. He should have been.
