    Years ago this might have raised gasps. Now it seems a weekly occurrence.

    I totally agree regarding the fact that crimes of this nature have lost their power to shock. We seem to accept them as a matter of course. The late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan spoke about "defining deviancy downward" - basically, allowing social and ethical standards to slip rather than to take an active stand and say these things are unacceptable. This is an extreme example of that, but an example nevertheless - that we no longer gasp at crimes of this nature.

    A depressing update: the fatalities included Conant's three sons, aged between 11 and eighteen, and his brother. His wife survived the incident. No details as to motive but he seems to have taken his time, moving from site to site within the town.

    From November 2013:

    http://trib.com/news/state-and-regio...6ff40dec4.html

    A Wyoming man who killed his three young sons and brother and wounded his wife in a shooting rampage two years ago must serve five consecutive life sentences — four of them without possibility of parole...

    Conant’s no-contest pleas in June followed several lengthy stays at the Wyoming State Hospital in Evanston that ultimately determined he was competent to stand trial.
