I've been experiencing a slow rage over the last few days and it comes from the actions of not only a lunatic but their families after their rampages are over.
"There are no words to describe our shock, horror, and grief," said the statement, provided to the Associated Press by a lawyer representing the family of Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, who was killed by police. "The person who committed this horrible crime was not the son we knew and loved. For many years, our son suffered from depression. It grieves us beyond belief to know that his pain found its expression in this heinous act of violence."This was not the person they knew and loved? Their son suffered from depression? HIS PAIN found its EXPRESSION in this heinous act of violence?
The family added that they are cooperating with the investigation.
"We understand there are many legitimate questions that need to be answered," the statement said. "Having said this, now is the time to reflect on the victims and their families, and we feel it would be inappropriate to say anything more other than that we are truly sorry for their loss."
EAT SHIT AND DIE!
God might forgive you but I never will. How did society reach a point where a few useless words are all it takes to turn people away from the reality of situations?
The shooter's family are the same people that paid for his trips to the Middle East. They're the same people that failed to notify authorities that he had become radicalized. They're the same people that saw this storm coming and did nothing to stop it.
But now they expect us to believe that they're sorry their animal of a son went on a rampage and shot down good men?
The weird thing? The God of my belief (embryonic at this stage) might forgive. Their God is giving the shooter 72 virgins.
