Why mass murder?

I came across this article about the tragedy in NY.  Although this isn’t exactly like the “Strategic logic” article we read in class, it did get me thinking about why people do what they do. It’s so hard to imagine what such rage and pain feels like. Whether they’re part of some radical terrorist group or a man angry over a cheating spouse, I just can’t comprehend mass murder. There are so many events like school shootings and people losing it at work and taking a machine gun in. Has anyone seen the movie “Runaway Jury”? It was a book about the tobacco industry, but the movie was about killings and guns. It just all seems so unreasonable. I just can’t grasp it….
