Doctor shot at Berlin - another one going over the edge

Doctor shot at Berlin - another one going over the edge
I don't know what is wrong with this world. As I said before, I haven't seen that such a massing of violent incidents before in my lifetime. A patient shot a doctor in a clinic at Berlin before committing suicide.

Violence breeds violence. I imagine many religious fanatics and/or people with psychological problems are motivated to commit acts of violence, by atmosphere of terror and chaos, caused by ISIS attacks over the recent years, spun by mainstream media and right-wing politicians and fueled by scared people through social media.

It'll probably get worse, before it gets better... Undecided

It's a common effect and it's the media's depiction of such violent acts that inspires further ones indirectly. It's a sad truth.

X sees Y committing an atrocity on the news. X copies Y. Z copies X. And so on.

We're still not in epidemic mode by a huge margin. The media is stampeding people, that's all.

That depends on what part of the world you are living in I'm afraid.

I'm in Paris right now but I lived near Saint-Etienne du Rouvray.

Okay, folks.

Don't shoot your doctors.

They're overworked, underpaid, and should be treated on par with the most defenceless and innocent of beasts.
