The Fifth Estate has just treated us to its explication of the murders of registered sex offenders in Maine by a young man from Nova Scotia last year.
Naturally, his crimes were caused by his father's having exposed him to firearms during a brief period when the two lived together in Idaho.
His own, and his mother's, membership in a hyperfundamentalist Christian sect represented apositive influence, according to the CBC.
