Deep within our psyche we have triggers that closed down logic and common sense and take over our brains with anger. We have all felt it and sometimes it begins with fear or jealousy. If it is permitted to intensify, it becomes anger that may cause the death of others, both or suicide. With many instances of this scenario in recent times it is important to comprehend how and why this happens.
The bottom line in a number of these cases is revenge. The emotion tripping that is a feeling of loss and feelings of hate towards and punishment for a perpetrator.
In the last month or so in Australia we have seen a grandfather shoot dead his whole family before killing himself. Seven people in all that included his wife, daughter, and four grandchildren. While this has shocked the nation it’s followed by a father who killed his two teenage children before turning the gun on himself.
Both these instances followed custody battles in court in which the two men lost out. Their anger, however, followed months of preparation. In the case of the father he joined a shooting club to acquire a license to get guns. That happened weeks or even months beforehand.
In the case of the grandfather there were other indications as he became more violent as the end approached. The court outcome might have had little to do with his final act but there’s signs of jealousy or fear planning out.
It involved the death of five people but the shooter survived and is in custody.
There are many killings that aren’t associated with court outcomes, such as when a partner is killed by their ex or current lover. The reasons aren’t always clear but most are motivated by jealousy and or fear, especially if there is a break-down in the connection.
The question is how does one avoid reaching the point of either committing murder or being a victim of a killer? Every situation is different and every outcome is equally unpredictable. Girls, however, are more vulnerable since they’re the weaker of the two. The solution must, therefore, lie at the signals exhibited.
It is very likely that one who is planning this outcome has mood swings and other things that point to a change in their thinking. Although it’s not possible to provide positive answers the ideal strategy is to encourage you to think things through rather than act due to the force inside that blocks out common sense and logic.
