Dr. Carol Swain writes, “In the first few days following the shooting deaths of the five servicemen in Chattanooga, investigating officials say they were stumped in seeking a motive to explain the murders apparently committed by Abdulazeez, the 24-year-old son of an immigrant Muslim family. Descriptive reactions to what took place, as reported in the media, have ranged from “ruthless” and “deranged” to “senseless” and “unfathomable.”Ruthless for certain, but unfathomable? Has anyone been paying attention to what’s been going on in the world lately? Meanwhile, investigators are attempting to piece together a working hypothesis that might explain what happened and why, in trying to trace, as Hoffer might say, Abdulazeez’s genesis and outline his nature. Investigators make it sound like this is just another crime scene investigation – CSI: Chattanooga, while the media focuses on his alleged depression and drug use as if those two factors alone explain or justify his heinous acts.”
