I think 99% of people in this thread were talking about the absurdity of the event and not the circumstances which led to the event at all. Brewbuck in particular thought the whole "zombie" perception was wrong and malicious; for some reason, that means that everyone buys (or even cares about) the circumstances that led to the perp's mental state.
A debate on "chemical misuse" or whatever never arose out of this.
In other words... guys, guys, I think the television news might be really sensationalist! I have to inform the world!I'm not holding it against a police officer for making observations, having thoughts and opinions, etc. What I do find alarming is the ABSOLUTE INSANITY and COMPLETE, UTTERLY UNFOUNDED CREDULITY with which the media and general public seem to have swallowed their own malarky, hook, line and sinker.* Like: zero reasoning skills. Pathetic. Maybe everybody is on crazy drugs. You people need to smarten up
