  1. Just tired of reading about robbery, murder, death on the roads and other forms of violence against persons, some elderly. Why are people becoming so violent would be an interesting investigation/research right now.
    Is the excessive use of alcohol, drugs deals gone sour or something else responsible wholly or in part for the upsurge of violence?
    Impatience, intolerance, jealousy, greed, suspicion, what’s the answer?
