What Do We Make Of Senseless Homicide
What happen to the reluctance to kill, injure or terrorize others?
Whether it makes the front page of national media outlets or is just a local run story, whether it dwells aloft in the ether of social media, or hardly creates a stir, the context in the tragedy of our own making is immutable. Senseless homicide is an understatement of irreducible proportions, our interdependence can neither make it any more distinct by celebritism, or any less distinct by anonymity, the fact that remains is the absurdity of its perniciousness.
A trending fall in the nation’s homicide rate does not make even one homicide tolerable as a sobering note to make.
It is inexcusable to perceive our seemingly social reconditioning over this period as simply a “better than it used to be” cliché. It can also be said that the immoral tendencies has not entirely left us but has simply shifted. The homicidal threat or injury is more evident and just as inaccurately reported in our cyberspace communities, making the physical manifestation of homicidal violence seem like anomalies when in fact they are still common human atrocities.
It should lead us to wonder: Where is the reluctance in this sort of thinking, planning and acting on the impulsive and unconscionable attitude and behavior of homicidal rage and terror against humanity? Why does this reticence instead fill that void to reject, detest, and not tolerate this socialized apathy towards our interdependence?
