Horrifying

Everyone must have read / seen the shocking incident related to the CEO of the Italian auto component company which laid off workers?

I wonder what provoked them to such violence in the first place?
Assuming the workers had been wronged, this kind of vendetta will only make their families plight more pathetic.

However provoked they were, how could the workers justify killing some one- maybe someone they had lunch with, shook hands with just a few months ago?

What would the CEO's family be going through?

Can you even imagine your colleague/ subordinate as a potential killer ?

Yes, it is dastardly... and i was horrified too.. what is enough provocation for u to turn murderer?

This reminds me of Naxalbadi movement in Bengal. Kill the classes.

It is pretty irresponsible on the part of Union Minister Oscar Fernandes to describe the killing of L.K. Chaudhury, CEO of Graziano Transmissioni Noida as a consequence of the “simmering discontent among the workers,” and that this should serve as a warning for managements.
Whatever may be the provocation, is it right to take the life of a person ?

Desperation? Still, this is not the answer and I was shocked at the Union Minister's response to it. That is all he could think of? Compassion? Where was the compassion for the CEO, who despite his title, was also a human being?
