According to psychologists, each individual is the sole person to blame for his own actions. Any rational explanation of each personâ€™s actions would just worth a naught. The famous â€˜The Devil made me do it!â€ line definitely is one of those reasons that are considered unacceptable from the psychologistsâ€™ point of view.
Cho Sheung-ho, the gunman, is the obvious perpetrator to blame alright, no doubt about that. Many witnesses saw him. But there should be other people around him to blame for one way or another.
You. The â€œyouâ€ here could be anybody close to Cho Sheung-ho or you who is reading this. Or could be the one who wrote this blog. Or Could be his classmates, friends (if he had one), neighbors, and the Christians. A simple â€œhiâ€ or â€œgood dayâ€ would have made him sort of connect to the society. You being friendly to him would have made him feel part of the community of people. Human nature is that we only notice the â€œpleasing to the eye elite.â€
Christians, I admonish, the Bible said in Ezekiel that if we fail to warn others of their sins you are accountable for his sins if the sinner dies.
Parents. Absolutely gets the bigger slice of the blame cake. The parents could have prevented the evil ideas that sipped into Cho Sheung-hoâ€™s head while he was growing up.
Evil begets evil or love begets love. If only Cho Sheung-hoâ€™s parents have sown love to him on a constant basis, Cho Sheung-ho could have spread that love to others instead of hate.
