The Children of the Heroes of Beslan

One of the Marathon murderers is dead, the other on the run. They are both quite young. The suspects were identified to The Associated Press as coming from the Russian region near Chechnya.
Chechnya is the site of the infamous Heroes of Beslan, a most despicable atrocity that stunned any thinking person paying attention. (The attack, by hardened combat veterans, targeted a grade school.) This kind of behavior is usually seen in a culture in its death throes.
Below are two links that these events have called to mind.
