Disaster far more mild than feared

I had previously written about the pain and violence that would result from Harold Camping's false prediction of a May 21, 2011 Rapture. fortunately, if that word can be applied in this situation, most of the suffering has been existential, financial and religious. There have been very few documented instances of violence related to Camping's lies.

One recent example of actual Camping caused violence is documented in the article "Harold Camping Follower Shot Man Over Rapture Belief?"

39 year old Dale O’Callaghan was one of Camping';s followers. Employed at his Father's company he was getting some ribbing from coworkers over still being on Earth after the May 21 deadline fizzled out. His reaction was to shoot and nearly cripple one of his coworkers.
