Exactly. I've got no empathy for Belcher at the moment in contrast to those whom he harmed so needlessly.
He might have been fighting demons in his head that none us could ever comprehend. No one knows. Its easy for everyone to say "I would never kill myself" but Im sure that most everyone who does has said that in their lifetimes. RIP and condolences to all involved in this tragedy.
I can understand not having empathy for Belcher right now. He is dead, so the ones hurting are the living.
However, please remember that we do not know the circumstances involved. Try not to judge right now.
I say this as a person with mental health issues that cause violent black-outs.
Sometimes a tragedy is just a tragedy.
