    Based on the article linked to, I don't think there's enough detail to say who's right and who's wrong. And frankly, when you use terms like "the worst of humanity," that seems like you're just ranting to me.

    Better " ranting " than " do nothing " especially in such situations. [ I'm glad that Mr. Clark let the world know, or it would have been simply another episode of missed opportunities to inform us, even when via Facebook, but hey, these are the times! ]

    The problem is, when you rant like that, you damage your credibility by making yourself seem like a raving lunatic and turn off people who may otherwise be inclined to listen to a calm, reasoned argument.

    I see people as emotional beings, not as robots, of course he should have calmed first, but hey, it's human, we don't look for default answers here. [ .....and let's face it, the more sensational it sounds, the more it grabs our attention, he could be rather clever to present it in this way he has chosen to! ]
