The picture of the accused tells the story of a selfish and insensitive individual addicted to violent internet games. There are various forms of addiction from the tradional alcoholism to drug addiction. An addiction alienate the human mind from all responsibilities of moral nature. Violence is the lesser known addiction and needs much more study and research. Wanton killings committed by the young of recent times all point in that direction. The atrocities depicted and reported by the news accounts of siucide attacks is another manifestation of this addiction.
