With reports that a number of people have been shot at in a mall we really must start to question our society. With all that is going on in the world presently it seems crazy to be adding to our troubles. There will always be those in society who feel like outcasts and prone to extreme acts. Reports coming out from this incident indicate the gunman a young white male. Had issues through arguments with some people and decided to start shooting indiscriminately. Are we so angry as a culture that rational thinking doesn’t come into play? This mall has also been the scene of recent protests for the killing by police of rioters. We really must start to question what kind of society we want to be. More importantly what societal norms we wish to adopt in order to live orderly and fulfilled lives.
