In the wake of the Newtown, Connecticut massacre of innoncent children comes a creative act of murder. A few hours ago a gunman set a trap for volunteer firemen in a small upstate New York town. Non-descript Webster will displace Newtown for the moment as the topic of converstaion regarding gutless killers who go on a rampage in their final dark hours signalling a tension between cowardice and rage. First responders often face tests of courage, and while the Newton massacre presented responders with unspoke images of horror, the trap that this murderer set was for the responders themselves. The What is this world coming to? rhetorical question is posed yet again.
