Seems to be the new American way. A black man with a fairly decent career ahead of him slowly descends into madness for reasons unknown. His madness manifests itself as increasing anger and grievance. His trigger point was the homicidal act of a young white man who also descended into madness with increasing anger and grievance. As a society we have failed to deal with mental illness in anything approaching an effective way. We have also grown to view self-righteous anger and feeling unfairly put upon as perfectly acceptable emotional states. Everybody demands to be heard and everybody demands to have their country back. No wonder we can't spot madness before it blossoms into tragedy.
