    ... of making conscious, deliberate choices....

    If he had killed only himself, then fine.  It's his choice.  I might even understand it (one of my cousins killed himself; I actually understood why, and he wasn't even insane).

    Or if this murderer had "only" killed his mother for whatever real or imaginary things he was mad at her about, and then killed himself..., well, it's a stretch, but I might understand that (don't know a thing about his mother or their relationship).  Simple murder-suicide and we would never have heard of this jackass.

    BUT, the truly UNforgivable thing he did was to DELIBERATELY CHOOSE to do the most evil and despicable thing possible, for which he should expect no one would ever forgive him..., of his own free will..., he put on a bulletproof vest, got in his mother's car and drove to the school where she used to work (& where he used to attend school?) and then proceeded to search out and coldly kill TWENTY CHILDREN (I still can't get my head around that) and six teachers..., by using high-powered, usually always fatal ammo, to literally mow them down..., THAT I cannot and will not forgive.

    That degree of deliberate evil takes a high degree of cunning, calm, cool, collectedness, pre-planning (maybe even extensive pre-planning), and malice aforethought - none of that was on the spur of the moment, so he wasn't as deranged a madman as most people will make him out to be in the future.  His actions were not impulsive.  They were deliberate.  If his actions were impulsive, he would not have stopped to put on a bulletproof vest.  If his aim was to kill himself after he killed the students and teachers, then why put on the bulletproof vest?  No..., he put on a bulletproof vest so that if he chickened out and didn't accomplish his own death by his own hand, it would not be that easy for him to commit suicide by cop.  The police officers would have had to take very careful aim to hit any vulnerable spots on his extremities that would sever a main artery or vein so he'd bleed to death, or they would have had to have a clear shot to his head.  This fellow was a cold-blooded killer, but he went one step further and targeted little children!  We're all used to mostly adults or older high school kids getting killed.  These kids were entering grade  school, they were young, innocent, vulnerable, and he targeted them!  He wanted to be remembered for one of the most heinous crimes in the US, and targeting first or second graders most assuredly accomplished that.

    Now is when I hope there is something to religious mythology and I hope he rots in the lowest level of hell forever and a day.
