Spitting, shooting and rejection.
From the excellent Boing-Boing.
"A man has been arrested in Japan for carrying out 5 drive-by coffee spitting attacks on schoolgirl pedestrians. In all of the attacks, he spit coffee out his car window and into the faces of the girls before quickly driving away."
The spitter, who was nicknamed “Coffee Bukake Man” [コーヒーぶっかけ男] by locals, had carried out 5 attacks since the end of October. All of his victims were junior high school or high school girls wearing their uniforms, and all of the attacks involved spitting coffee onto their faces from his car window. His final attack took place on December 7th, when a 16-year-old schoolgirl he spit on was able to come to her senses quickly enough to spot his license plate number and memorize it. This led to the arrest of 26 year-old Yoshiro Sumiyama, who admitted attacking the girls. Sumiyama told police that he was irritated after having been dumped by a woman and carried out the spitting attacks to relieve some stress.'
Stress? Seriously what a dumb shit. I'm glad it was 'only' coffee he was hitting them with, it could just have easily been far more serious.
Why is it that when people feel rejected or are rejected by one person, they feel obliged to take it out on everyone else? It's like those losers who shoot up schools over some imagined slight. Or shoot up churches and kill innocent people who have done them no harm. Or shoot up shoppers in a mall a few weeks before christmas because your girlfriend left you. What is it with making other people suffer because you suffered a rejection? Why oh why can't these assholes just deal with rejection like the rest of us and move bloody on?
Spitting I'm against it.
Attacking innocent folk because you are a loser, I'm against that too.
