What a hell of a mess we have collectively created. We are not allowed to
defend ourselves but the law can't protect us. The biggest reason is we now
live in urban societies rather than rural ones. We have different generations
and cultures living in close proximity to each other with no understanding of
how each other thinks or what the state of mind of our neighbour is.
We have people who are granola eating pacifists, living next door to people
who would plot to honor kill their daughter and rednecks who just fight for
the fact they have a chip on their shoulder. We are suspicious of each other,
for others they have no respect for anything and virtually all these groups
believe there is an instant solution to everything not understanding that societies
solutions lie within us.
This poor bugg*r will end up in court and prosecuted not because he was a bad
person but because authorities and the legal system know if he wasn't punished
the society would end up out of control. Face it we have neither democracy nor
justice and that is a recipe for societal breakdown. We are lemmings dancing on
the cliff's edge
