This is the fallacy of religion and of belief in general. People who are suffering in life take solace in the belief that there must be something better somewhere else or in some future reality. Yet it is that very belief that is often used to justify heinous acts.

I don't think that is the case here; I think this was simply the acting of an ill minded individual.

However, with a belief in any future end one can justify any present means to get there.
