I can’t understand being so angry at my mother that I shoot her in the face several times as she sleeps. I can’t understand it, but just for the sake of argument let’s say I can. I mean, spouses shoot spouses, kids have definitely shot parents before. It’s happened, so just because I can’t understand it, it happens.
