    How do you categorize bad people? On what basis are you making that judgment? Do you mean murderers and rapists?

    There is no reason, it's just part of the way life is.

    "Bad people" are cunning, they know their "end" and use whatever "means" possible to get to that "end". A moral person will "play" by the rules while an immoral person will disregard the rules and cheat ... often times unseen, the cheater "wins" the game.
    Yet, what do we know of the mental torment of "the cheater" or the bad person, what do we know of their remorse or nightmares ... "bad" people may seem to "have it good" at times but the inner turmoil I think is not worth it.

    simple, bad people use the gullibility of the good-ol-trusting folks for their own means. If you have no morals you have no problem hurting others.
    The good don't seem to mind since they often follow a philosophy of being humble and taking it lying down, somehow believing that the wicked will be punished after death and so do nothing to stop them. It takes more than a bad man to do evil, it takes good people to do nothing, see the holocaust in Europe.

    Why don't good things happen to to good people? that is the real mystery here

    The fact is simple. Nobody is good. Everybody has done bad things. When it rains, there is no discrimination. The rain falls on the just and unjust. The sun and moon shine; and everybody benefits. maybe if more good things happened to the so called bad people, they may consider changing their ways/behaviour and perspective on life.

    Good things happen to bad people and good people. Bad things happen to good people and bad people, things just happen, don't look for reasons, you'll probably end up joining a cult=)
