Is it wrong to think "You're probably going to need to aim a bit higher.."?

Just a reminder that the mentally ill are much more likely to be the victim of a crime than the perpetrator.

I guess he could go for the brain, but I don't think that would be much more effective.

His anti-psychotic medication was being reduced over a period of 18 months and finally stopped on January 9, 2014 - just over 48 hours before Mr O'Gorman's killing.

Whoopsie.

It was just a guy renting out a room in his home. Not exactly a Ritchie Rich slum lord.

FTA:

An Italian national who was diagnosed with schizophrenia believed killing his landlord and eating his victim's heart would put an end to evil in the world, an inquest has heard.

Well...I mean, how do you know it won't help until you try?  *shrug*

Well now we know why the world is farked. The article says he removed the liver and a lung. There is nothing about him eating the heart. So he made a deal to end evil in the world but backed out of it. Everybody knows that if you don't hold up your end of a bargain with some wish granting entity then you get a tenfold reversal.

Someone needs to dig up the body and feed him the heart now.

Karma Chameleon: Killing a landlord is a victimless crime


I don't get all the landlord hate here. After college, I lived in two different apartments each for about 3 years. I understood that living in an apartment wasn't supposed to be a permanent situation. I realized that buying a house is a huge financial commitment and I wanted to be sure I was going to be comfortable with that long term. Towards the end of my first apartment, I realized that not only did I not want to continue working for my current employer, I didn't want to live in that metro area. So I took another job in a different metro area several states away. Again, I spent about 3 years before I decided that I wanted to settle down here and exactly which city I wanted to live in.

I always understood that renting was supposed to be temporary. I signed a lease for a specified period of time and I expected that my rent would likely increase after my lease expired. I could have signed a longer term lease, but I wanted the freedom to leave sooner if I found the right opportunity. Why do people think they are entitled to constant rents after their leases have expired? Businesses are often forced to move because of increasing rents and nobody whines about them.

Because people here are dumb and like half this site are avowed Communists that thought the Chinese Landlord Massacre was righteous and good.

They believe housing is a human right and that the hundreds of thousands of dollars of maintenance, repairs, and upgrades over a home's lifetime should be free from any profit notice along with all the labor used to build them in the first place.

This, of course, ignores the fact that a roof leak can't wait several months to be repaired requiring useful capital to be used in order to fix it today and a return on that capital expected from anyone putting up the funds.

I'm not a sciencetition but I'm pretty sure eating his heart grants you his power and now your the evil land lord.

I see, and you believe that if you can't afford a 150% rent increase after a year, people can go live under a bridge.

The life you life is a choice you make. Nobody owes you shiat in this world. Just like how nobody should expect you to run a flop house as part of the societal contract, nobody should expect anyone else run a flop house for them.

You are not entitled to any more than you are capable of providing yourself. To think otherwise is a rather bold take when it doesn't involve your own property.

But, I tell you what, you can earn redemption right now. The average living space in Hong Kong is roughly 135cubic feet. I'll let you do your own math about how many homeless people you can reasonably fit in whatever residence you call your own, but I'm going to guess each person where you live has more than 135 cubic feet of space.

Go on. Redeem yourself and your silly ideas.
