I don't have to wonder about what drives people to terrible actions.
I have COMMITTED terrible actions.
I have experienced virtually no legal action for such, likely never will (IIRC statutes ran out -- or the evidence is all gone, and either way I will confirm no details of anything).
As someone who has actually done terrible shit, I UNDERSTAND what drives people to terrible shit.
The terrible actions still need stopping, just like someone should have stopped me.
