    the norm, even for those living lives similar to those who become violent, is not to become violent. so why do these specific individuals become the anomaly? there is no amswer.

    •  I think that's one level too simplistic. (0+ / 0-)

      Even Martin Luther King admitted that he could condone violence if non-violent methods failed and failed again.

      I suspect there is something to being part of a group that believes itself to be wronged.  Get wronged enough, feel helpless enough, feel angry enough, and you want to do something about it. Sometimes it's a few, sometimes it's not so few.
