I happened upon the YouTube video about the Germanwings crash where the copilot deliberately flew the plane into the mountains in Switzerland. I can't imagine the fear and panic that was going on when the pilot couldn't get into the cockpit, and people started seeing mountains at their level. Holy crap... And the suicidal ass didn't say a thing... What kind of mind makes a person do that. I also saw the video of the guy that 'stole' the Q400 at SEATAC. He also didn't say anything doe the last 5 minutes, in spite of being very incredibly chatty up until that time. I've had rough times. I just thought that suicide means they won. I'd rather not give people the satisfaction to know that they drove me to 'end it all'.

There is so much pain in the world, and country now. It's sad that so many leaders seem to not give a crap either.

The same for Air Mozambique flight 470:

It should have been shut down the second after that psychotic killed all of those innocent people.
