Well here is another shooting. While details are not yet known, at least superficially it appears to be involving Koreans, very possibly immigrant Koreans.
This is possibly a domestic/marriage issue?
**4 shot, 1 dead at Korean retreat center in Calif.

TEMECULA, Calif. – A gunman opened fire at a remote Korean Christian retreat center Tuesday night, leaving one person dead and at least three people injured, authorities said.
Authorities were first called to the rural area about 7 p.m. after receiving reports about a man shooting his wife, California Highway Patrol spokesman Mario Lopez said.
But investigators were still trying to learn the circumstances of the shootings, and were hindered by a language barrier in trying to sort out the facts, Riverside County Sheriff’s spokesman Dennis Gutierrez said.
My thoughts on it is that while the cultures in S.E. Asia are different, I think they all are going to share some fundamental outlooks. They are heavily influenced by Confucianism. If you look at it this way, even the Atheist and the Secular Humanists in the West are heavily influenced by Christianity.
One thing that may play a factor is the pressure that males are placed on the males. There is a more general sentiment placed on your role in your family or clan, than we in the West who are more individualistic. We may only have to look ourselves in the mirror or give an honest account of ourselves to God. While some from the East may have to account for themselves to their ancestors and to those who will come after them.
The males may have more emphasis placed into a system of a formal hierarchy, the females have more emphasis placed into an informal system. The males may feel more of a burden of having to keep a prestigious job. It is hard to say though of the importance, that dynamic can vary a lot, but I think it is suffice to say, the male probably can feel more of that burden.
