    Shazad was a successful consultant who owned a pretty sweet house in Connecticut apparently. I’m not sure that’s sucking at life. The terrorism seemed to sabotage an otherwise successful life it seems in his case.Report

      @Michael Drew, His life appears to have fallen apart in the last few years. He lost his house to the bank.

      It certainly makes some sense that people who are screwing up life would be drawn to something that would give them power and succsess.Report
