Some people think he's a crazy terrorist and some people think he was just misguided. 1-2 years ago, I went through a phase where I could do the same to some certain ethnicities I hated, but I was 12, not 21. I think they gave him the wrong ideas and he's completely sane.
I read he almost gave up on shooting because everyone was so nice to him. But he decided to "carry on the mission". I thought it was stupid to forgive him when I first read the families' reaction, but now I understand why they're doing this. He had the potential to be a better person, now he's going to spend his life in prison. Those families are true people of faith and I couldn't admire them more for the forgiveness they're showing for a man who took the life of their loved ones.

These cases always make me wonder - Had he a mental problem which meant he was always likely to do this - Was todays society always going produce a racial attacker - I think the fact the victims families had deep religious faith meant they had more likely toforgive than others might do. I don't think that I could have forgiven so easily.0
