The Professor In Alabama: More Charges

The Professor denied tenure who went on a killing spree is facing more charges today, according to CNN.

A biology professor charged with killing three faculty members at the University of Alabama in Huntsville also has been charged with wounding three others, police said. Amy Bishop Anderson was previously charged with capital murder in the Friday deaths, making her eligible for the death penalty in Alabama. Huntsville police Sgt. Mark Roberts told CNN on Tuesday that she also has been charged with three counts of attempted murder.

The details coming to light about her- her killing of her brother, her involvement in a mailbombing plot, all paint a portrait of a woman with serious mental issues. Or, perhaps, they paint a portrait of a woman who is simply evil.

We are quick in our society to blame mom, or upbringing, or environment, or some such uncontrollable issue for the evil things people do. But perhaps people, like Ms Anderson, do what they do only, simply, and purely because they are wicked.

Maybe momma didn’t make her do it. Maybe evil resident in her soul did.
