Social norms and religious teachings have taught us that killing is a sin worthy of condemnation. Taking a life in one’s hand is something unforgivable and something unjustifiable both in the rule of law and in the eyes of God. Deciding on other people’s death and/or life is never on the hands of mere mortals like us. It is decided by fate and by an almighty God who chooses who lives and who perishes.
But for some who are blinded by hate and ego, killing in massive proportions gives them the justice, the joy and the overwhelming recognition and affirmation of their strength and power making them “demons” in the process.
