    bird situation.  Maybe it is a true lack of respect for life.
    I would not call that heartless though, that is too gentle a term. I would call the behavior that you are describing as truly Phsycotic. The same kind of person who pulls wings off of flies and tortures small animals. Scary.  Really scary.

    The point I was attempting to make was that I deal with students every day that will pull the bolts out of a structure that will drop something deadly on their OWN HEAD, because they can not reason out what the consequences will be. And someone will point it out to them. And then they will go to the NEXT structure they need to take apart, and proceed to take the bolts out of the structure and start to drop an identically deadly object on their OWN HEAD again

    These are students who have graduated from high school, and are actively enrolled in a State University. I have watched the numbers change over the last 9.5 years from the one awkward student in the class who exhibits this behavior, to about half of the students in the class.

    I am making the jump to tree trimming, that if these people can drop something on their own head more than once because they are incapable of grasping consequences, then just maybe that is what is happening in the workforce outside of college as well. Not everyone has the morals of the Koch brothers.

    Not in any way does what I said above make the situation less horrible or tragic. I am so glad I was not there myself. I would have been in serious trouble.
