Ok Mr Starlion...He wasn't a terrorist just a plain straight murderer..I reckon this word is perfect for him.
Murderer, yes. But in my opinion not necessarily an evil person. What is known is that he was a sick person, as in he had a diagnosable illness that influenced his behaviour.
I have strong feelings on this matter, so please bear with me.
I don't think labels like "murderer" get us to the core of the issue. More importantly, they don't help with making aviation safer in the future.
Again, we must ask "why". Why was this man's illness not "caught" before it could do damage? Why was he not removed from a position where he could hurt himself and others? Why did he not receive the help that he so badly needed? The man had seen many doctors. For better or worse, German labour laws did not allow medical information to be shared with the employer.
Some people have illnesses. This is not something that they choose. There was a breakdown here, in that a mentally ill person was being allowed to have control of an airliner.
The accident was horrific. But we cannot blame the pilot for an illness that he did not choose to have. And thus, in my opinion, we cannot entirely blame him for the actions he took under the influence of his illness.
Again, the question becomes, what safeguards can be put in place to prevent a recurrence? The obvious one is not to leave a pilot alone in the cockpit, a policy that many airlines have had in place for decades. Going deeper, the accessibility of non-judgemental assistance for various ailments is important. If this pilot had received help early, this accident might never have happened.
I understand Mr Starlion..I know he had "D" (Im not gonna name it for I believe naming it gives it power) and was going through suicidal thoughts and even though I'm not a type of person to share a lot of my personal stuff online but I was going through similar stuff back in 2015 but I have somehow learnt to put it at bay..The D thing can be controlled by no medicines but ourselves and our own will to control our mind and tell it that "I run you YOU DONT RUN ME" ...There are myriads of cases and I know it can be triggered by any childhood incident or PTSD or even medical treatment...I can't share much but All I wanna say is that despite all the mess so many of us go through we fight it..we defeat it and come out stronger !!
I feel sorry for him but not for what he did..I wish he had just jumped off the cliff or something than taking all those along with him.
