The best commentary I have heard on this tragedy so far came from the sheriff investigating.

He simply said that it is the current political mindset to inspire anger and vitriol against the other party. It is no longer a discussion by opponents, but a battle by enemies which has caused so many people to feel such contempt for their political opponents.

While this individual was clearly troubled, could there be much doubt that he was spurred on by a political process driven by such animosity and outright hatred?

Reminds me of the old saying, "When you point your finger at someone, you point 3 fingers at yourself."
