This story brought tears to my eyes! Another one out of Florida.
This on the heels of the man in a Chapel Hill, North Carolina, who killed three neighbors, possibly over parking disputes.
The comments on threads related to the senseless shooting of three young students, who happen to be Muslim, are shocking, disturbing, and heartbreaking. I cannot believe the number of people who believe this “gun-toting atheist” was justified in taking three lives because these three allegedly drove him to that point over parking disputes! Was this a hate crime as well? It wouldn’t surprise me, the way that HOAs are set up to intentionally exclude and harass residents who may be different or unpopular. The social structure just reinforces prejudices.
What is happening to our country, when a significant portion of our population is so unable to deal with conflict that they must resort to abuse, violence, and suicide?
