They Took Everything He Had...

...until all he had left was his pride, and his anger. And his guns.

The father of Rockne Newell, who murdered the town officials in a Pennsylvania town who he thought responsible for ruining his life, speaks of his son.

Most people can handle life's hardships. Some can't; when they can't, most will turn the anger inward, and commit suicide. Some few turn the anger outward, and kill those they think responsible.

I'm not saying here that I excuse what Rockne Newell did; I am saying that I can understand him, and his anger.
