People admire mavericks, unorthodox strong minded individuals that, in the movies, save the day.  


Mavericks that can shoot down and take out bogies with laser like  precision and prevent tragedies are our heroes.  


However, maverick is not a maverick when one shoots down friendlies, ignores bogies and destroys our own home base.


There is nothing maverick-like in destructive, hateful and harmful acts of careless disregard and abusive malfeasance, especially when lives are on the line.


False mavericks are a huge let down and disappointment, because we expected something more, instead we got nothing, but the opposite.
