I am really curious how he managed to get out of camp with the weapon & rounds.
this may seem cruel hearted
but frankly i think we have been hoodwinked by all the scientists that talk about nature and nurture and all that crap
there's no one reason to explain why someone does what he does, or takes whatever path he takes
like i was saying to a friend the other day
there are people with broken families who grow up against the odds and make it big in life
there are people with beautiful families who grow up to be failures in life, whatever a failure in life may be
and i'd be betting that the second group put into a broken family would turn out almost the same anyways
and vice versa
it's just the choices we make, who we are, both nature AND nurture play a part
which is why we should never judge anyone by their past/background
Now, we hear of this NSman gone kuku becos of GF.
Come to think of it, anyone heard of a gal gone crazy becos of BF left her - gal could cut her wrist, take 30 panadols or attempt to jump down from HDB point block.
I love big car, big house, big lenses, but small apertures.
i felt sorry for him too if its true. Just like watching movie, if you are a policeman and chasing after a robber. Caught him and he tell u his wife left him leaving a 4mths old kid behind. He just lost his job and couldn't find one for 2mths and also left with a 79 years old sick mother. He needs to feed them. What will u do?
If he falter now and have screw up his life...well sorry to say..this is the principle of Darwinian Law at work. You have a brain and are healthy and you can't figure things out? Hey I have had g/f problems too ...I might act childish or maybe even stalk her but comon. Steal a rifle and bullets and walk out of the camp? Well not being mean lah but good luck to him.
One more month ORD/ROD liao
Why do this type of stupid thing no matter how sad (or not) his story at home is
I am just speaking out loub here and maybe it is a knee jerk reaction to what I read. lah.But I suddenly feel if maybe he purposely did all this to avoid responsibility to take care of the grandma. In a way yes I think the parent at fault. They could not care less, screw up their marriage, dumped the kid on others (something I have hear more then a few times from other families in these day and age) and now the son does the same thing to others.
AS a saying goes "What wouldn't kill you will make you stronger". In his case, he took the easy way out. He wants to have fun, dressing up and have a g/f to enjoy which is good and fine but he wants nothing to do with real life responsibility he has. It's a tough life he had thus far. Granted. But all his woedid not happen to him one after the other within a week so he has time to take this all in and try to find some help or think this thru as I have seen others who did.
Now, I don't wish it on anyone and in a way I have to feel for him but you also have to look at it this way, society is not going to be giving you a handout anytime soon to help your life problems or ailing grandmother...so you have to step up and do something yourself..but doing it this way..that just makes it alot worst for everyone concern. I just hope there would be more help given to the grandma..she really is the one he hurts the most with his hero act ultimately .....not his ex g/f or his irresponsible parents or society at large if that was what he intended to do.
