I don't see how desperation can make anyone do something like this, desperation at what?
It's just absolutely sick.. there's no valid reason fo this EVER. This is why we need corporal punishment again, and it should be painful and frightening - just like what he's put all those poor people through.

I pray there are no more fatalities and the murdering SOB is taken down soon.
