But really, if you are in keeping with LOA part of the reason why "these things happen" is because we all focus on them so much. Which is potentially a more ethereal way of explaining the "violence begets violence" or the "when one atrocity happens, another follows shortly after" phenomenon. Of course, with the death mindset firmly in place, the media is ripe to pick up on any macabre tidbits just to fuel the cycle.
Ok I'm rambling now. That's just my 2c.
