The Brooklyn Police 2

The Prince of Verona:
"All are punishèd"
(and All are to blame!)

I have been reading detailed accounts of the killing incident and the killer. I have also been reading some analyses of violent incidents in general.

It is so very obvious that there is an incredible amount of detail in every act of violence. These actions are not necessarily random, and they are not reducible to the singular events that those who wish to place blame try to reduce them to.

In short, to blame any one person's acts or words for an act of violence now in this country - the most violent country in the world with the most privately held weapons of violence - is idiocy.

All are to blame, and all are punished.
