What leads anyone to the point where they feel violence is the solution? Not judging. More wondering how far she had been pushed before she reached that state.  Just sad that she felt this was her only way and it cost her life.

Personally I'm not a fan of cops, but Kiwi was in the wrong when she attacked the cop. Was it a "suicide by cop"? As for her initial victim, we will probably never know her reasoning for attacking him. Maybe he made a comment that set her off. A slap would have been understandable in that situation, but a butcher knife? Stuff like this I tend to stay out of. I never know what to make of it.
