People often love their little 'Hitlers' so they can ignore the bigger picture that they themselves often contribute to.
18 school shootings in around 45 days in the USA. Obviously, something is rotten in the state of Denmark.
Yes. The American Way of Life (TM).

To Hell with Him.

It's easy to forgive the perp when random strangers have been killed/wronged.

But when the victim is someone closer to you, then everything changes.

Probably why the cultivation of metta and karuna is a dedicated practice that one needs to make an effort to cultivate. If it was easy, it wouldn't require effort. :smile:

He is obviously in mental hell.

What more can you do to the guy?

Physical hell, how would that help?

I know you won’t answer me, *****. ;)

I think I can forgive Nickolas, but find it harder to forgive the system that failed him and the public.
