Many people are resorting to violent & destructive ways because they see no viable answer to their problems whether it is emotionally, mental, psychological, &/or socioeconomic problems. Such people also feel insignificant & powerless. They believe that they are at the mercy of outside influences & circumstances. It is usually people at the bottom of their pecking order whether it is familial, social, sociopolitical, &/or socioeconomic who react the most violent & destructive because they know that they have nothing to lose. They simply don't have more constructive &/or alternative avenues which to express themselves.
