    How someone can possibly see an outcome that WILL eventually result in either their death or incarceration as a satisfactory solution to a problem.

    How do they lose sight of the fact that the "problem" is vastly compounded by taking this particular route? I've never understood that. I guess they feel it's "worth it," because they'll be getting the "last word."

    The degree to which emotions can blind is apparently much greater than most people experience.




    Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.

        they're kids, and their brains are physically incapable of considering future consequences the way adults do. Which is why the adults around them have to make sure they can't make those really bad choices.
