Senseless Violence

Here we have three flashy vehicles, older model vehicles decked out with rims and lights blocking up the freeway. One of them hits the victim's car. Was the victim trying to pass? Anyhow, he gets out to check his vehicle when a man from one of the other cars get out to shoot him. Was this some kind of setup? Was it some kind of morbid initiation?

This should have been a story where a homeowner shoots intruders. Sadly it's the other way around. This is why police typically say that people should comply with robbers' demands. However, many people (myself included) cannot stand the thought of being a victim in their own homes and become incensed that someone would entertain the notion they can come into a person's sanctuary to steal, rape, or kill. These people would rather fight and risk death than have to live with that kind of violation. Imagine a man who is tied up while being forced to watch his wife being raped by home invaders. It's happened before.

I'm saddened by humanity when I am in traffic. The way people act like barbarians is just insane. We did have a guy die from an asshole speeding/weaving who hit a chunk of concrete wall which flew into the other guys window and killed him. The guy who caused it recently turned himself in and is being charged with vehicular manslaughter. I'm glad!
