I am dismayed at some of your reactions to Mikhail Pivnev’s school attack in Russia. Unfortunately, it’s nothing new to laugh and call the shooter who didn’t kill anyone or only managed to kill himself a failure, a judgement most often targeted at Sebastian Bosse and Asa Coon, but I demand to know why such a mentality still exists within this community. One whose members are blatantly aware of the perils of bullying, either from research or personal experience, find it laughable a child was driven to the extreme, then wield the same insults against them as their tormentors because it wasn’t their intended outcome? Would the “loser’s” despair be validated once their body is strewn among those they gunned down? That would be an achievement?
Please consider in what cause your solidarity lies.
