I just saw The Killer Within, a documentary about Bob Bechtel, the man who was bullied until he snapped and shot a dorm mate in 1955.
As I watched the documentary, I found myself becoming disgusted - not with Mr. Bechtel, but with many of the other people in the documentary. Mr. Bechtel, at least, faced what he did, paid what the standards of the time considered to be an appropriate penalty for his crime, and has done something good with his life. The other people in the documentary, on the other hand, refused to accept any responsibility for their parts in the tragedy, and spent their entire time on camera trying to convince the filmmakers that Mr. Bechtel was a monster and that he should not be taken seriously, no matter what he has to say, on any subject.
Even those who were involved in bullying him, after admitting to committing some of the acts he had described as examples of the bullying he endured, refused to admit that what they did constituted bullying. What kind of low-life scum are they?
I am disgusted.
