Buddhist Monk Goes On Tire Slashing Rampage After Killing Insect

Buddhist monks are generally the most peaceful people on the planet, but some monks have given their lives to Buddhism to escape a troubled and violent past.

It can be quite easy for these monks to stray from the path of peace, because all it takes is one little incident to throw them into a downward spiral of physical violence once again.

For 45-year-old Julian Glew the killing of an insect was that "one little incident", but rather than harm people he lashed out by slashing nearly 200 tires on cars around Pocklington, England.

Julian claims he wanted to take out his frustration on society without hurting anyone, trying to keep his freak out as Buddha friendly as possible by wounding cars instead of people.

The incident may also be a result of Julian living in isolation in the woods for the last 20 years, where he's seen lots of bugs but very few cars, so maybe the bug was a close friend?

Obviously, his attempt at "not hurting anyone" did just that. His actions hurt many people by slashing their tires. He hurt people financially. He hurt people who could not pick up their children at school or people who might have needed medical attendance and enough time to get them to hospital. This "monk" hasn't a clue how to be a true 'monk'.
