From every news that we heard there are always psychotic person being flash on a headline. As what I have seen in the latest mass shooting in colorado where the suspect pretends he's joker and kills 12 people and wounded many people knowing that he is a student for PHD. I was wondering do we really the strangers we met? Are we really safe meeting with new strangers?

I have read from an article that the suspect has a good credentials then a month ago he failed in the final exam. Maybe he was not able to cope with this frustration and he has no one to talked to, or nobody has guided him just to make him feel comfortable. For me, maybe there are more psychopaths now a days because of the independent living most people most people prefer,where they have no one to guide them what's right from wrong, what's good or bad, and no one to talked to whenever they are in need of someone to talk to.

Absolutely and it's sad to see so many youngsters are exposed to bad media. We are in the age where, so much information can be obtained through internet. It's inevitable... Good parental guidance and influence can help young people steer clear from bad things

Yeah, it's sad to see news such as this. Little do we expect a PHD potential turned killer... We are living in the age, where people finding lines greyer and greyer, harder to differentiate between black and white. We are living in the fallen Earth so to speak. However, that shouldn't deter us from meeting strangers - I'm not sure if you realize but our gut feeling can be our protector in times of need and we shouldn't ignore it. Example, there are times that you feel discomfort and a little uneasy whenever you are with someone that you don't really know and many times your feeling is telling the truth about that someone and many times we only realize it through sorrow and regrets for ignoring that gut feeling...

Maybe I'm opt to meet strangers only if he/she is connected to someone nor just online friends who are far less personal contact. Hehehe, I'm just getting paranoid, but reality seems to scare me alot. Sometimes its good to prevent things to happen rather than let it happen. Im just thankful that I have a wonderful family whom I could lean to in times of troubles.

hi gracie its scary anymore not knowing if you are safe going to a movie or even your bank or the grocery store.Of course w e do not know t he strangers we meet but by the same token we must not let something like that monster killer panic us to the point that we shut ourselves in our house and cower down expecting the worst.we must not let something like this hamper our lives or our happiness.Most times strangers are just people we have not yet met.How does anyone answer your last question, yes usually we are safe meeting new people.
