re: #478 albusteve

getting deep into his psyche is just what he wants…cap him and be done with it

Ignoring the how and why of it is to invite a repeat of these events. These things don’t happen for no reason at all. It isn’t “senseless” or “unthinkable”, no matter how comforting it may be to think of it in these terms. Somebody did this for a reason, and they thought it out.

Understanding exactly why is important, especially given that this guy isn’t a Loughner. He wasn’t insane. He had an ideology which compelled him to action. That doesn’t make him nuts. Dangerous, yes, but not nuts.

That distinction is crucial.
