Culling the herd.


Your lack of human compassion reveals psychopathology. Please look into it. More needless gun deaths. More grieving family and friends. Sympathy has become, unfortunately, just a platitude. There's no tangible desire to give relief. So I am sorry for those who have to deal with the aftermath.
