Sympathy for the Pilot Devil

There's a highly politically correct movement afoot to try to understand, explain, and some might say excuse the actions of the Germanwings pilot who was responsible for crashing that Airbus into the mountains with 150+ people aboard.  Folks are looking to leverage the story as a mean s to open a dialog about mental illness and the stigmas associated.


But let us not forget:  I don't care what he did or did not have, or why he did or did not have to hide it. The fact remains that he was responsible for 150 souls, and he listened to their terrified screams as he dove his plane into the Alps. That makes him a mass murderer, and one of historic proportions. 

Evil monster. Period.
