He continues his commentary about victimology: "So, what's the point here? I am amazed that this guy simply does not understand why society has a 'grudge against' him and his partners in crime. He's still the victim. He feels justified in victimizing other people because he has had a hard life. Whatever. I can acknowledge that Hood probably has not had a perfect life. Who has? He may not have had the most stable family life. So what? Did he receive encouragement to excel in school? Odds are, no. A hard life does not excuse bad behavior. Being poor does not give license to be a criminal. What about the millions of people who have few positions but still show respect to others? Culture. Culture. Culture."
More commentary from Mr. Durden: "Any time someone points out how Hood's excuses are bogus, the enablers, excuse-makers and professional victims get outraged and offended. Is Hood, along with his excuse-makers, suggesting that opportunities are fewer for him today than in generations past? This hood has had far more opportunities than black men in Georgia in generations past. Still, he's a victim? I don't think so. Someone has to challenge the culture."
