His hands, never having known good work, were known to be small and soft. He was fast with his fingers, his trigger finger itchy, pointing blame at someone else, never at himself. Sociopath, he poked the keys to provoke through social media, stirred unrest with his jabbing digits. The world was thoroughly shaken.
