Based on a true story.
The essence of this tragedy, it seems to me, derives from a fundamental absence of empathy on the part of the violent...
...an inability to imagine, or connect with, the humanity and suffering of others.
Such a failure of empathy, such numbness to the pain of a child or the desperation of a parent, is not innate; nor, history tells us, is it unique to a particular culture, religion, or ethnicity...
It may find expression in a particular brand of violence, and may be channeled by particular demagogues or fanatics...
Most often, though, it grows out of a climate of poverty and ignorance, helplessness and despair.
Why'd you kill him? He was just talking... and talking.
You see, in this world there are two kinds of people, my friend.
Those with loaded guns. And those who talk.
