You do realize someone not Christian or not religious can counter your proposition by pointing out any number of Catholics and Christians that have committed murder and great evils including partaking in genocides.
Chris Dorner was an officer in the Navy, college educated, and seems to me to have been a reasonably intelligent man. And while I realize he had stress factors in his life they don’t appear to me to have been insurmountable. From my socio-economic point of view–which includes the stress and stigma of drug addiction–his social and professional (and financial too I guess being fired from a job) problems were not so daunting and mysterious they could not be turned around with a little effort.
Bear in mind I say that with a horrible employment record marred with incredibly long gaps and too many places of employment due to years of drug addiction, and being mathematically challenged (literally I’m worse at math than most people, probably worse at it than most kids just entering high school) yet still stubbornly pursuing a science degree.
I think one problem we humans have is that we are very susceptible to only focusing on our crosses and not spending much time and thought on our blessings.
I do think the LAPD probably has a number of internal problems. And it would not surprise if indeed those police cadets did sing Hitler songs around the Jewish cadet whose father was a holocaust survivor. That sounds like something cops would do with a military mentality. I remember laying in my rack at night on ship listen to another Marine crying as basically all the Marines in the birthing taunted him about his mother that just died of cancer, and then chanted, “Kill yourself, kill yourself.”
But Dorner could have beaten the LAPD another way. He could have pursued greater personal and professional success, even if that led him to a different career field altogether. He was a big guy it seems. Maybe if could have tried breaking into bodyguard, executive protection work, for Hollywood stars. I don’t know. Maybe he could have went to school to become a chef if that interested him. Gotten his Cordon Bleu or something.
I also have gotten the impression Dorner had too much grandiose views about himself. I get the impression he wanted to be a good person, but somewhere along the journey and desire he developed emotional and mental problems. That’s the impression I get.
