Marc Stewart (RE: Press: A horror story unfolds): Our community is hurting again. Not since the Groene murders has our small city been faced with senseless violence and the destruction of young lives. There’s a nagging feeling that something more could have been done. Maybe. Who knows. We want to know why a teenager would slaughter his father and brother. At first, we conjure reasons out of thin air. We blame society, movies, television, video games, and the system. Then we read transcripts of court documents, filling in the blanks as best we can. Our brains want to make sense of this nightmare. I can’t. All I know is that I hugged my kids a little tighter this morning and told them I loved them.
Question: Do you see parallels between homicides Monday night and the Groene murders?
