This is a discussion on SAD: there are no words... none within the In the News: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly forums, part of the The Back Porch category; It took deputies 25 minutes? What?...
What a very sad sorry. I sat and cried while reading. Is there no where safe? Are we not able to know who people are?
The young man said this, "Just to let you know, I hate the feeling of killing someone. I’m going to be messed up."
Is this the kind of people were are producing in society now? He doesn't care about anyone but himself. He only cared about himself when he did what he wanted to do. He still only cares about himself after their deaths.

There is a reaon for the "Death Penalty" there would be no doubt that he did it and we wouldn't want him to have nightmares,so the best thing to prevent him from suffering is to tell him to hold still while he gets a bullet in the head

In one way I see lots of things here to be learned. The one we have to shoot may not fit the role we have in our minds as a/the BG. SA may not work because the situation may not look like a threat until it just happens. The one we have to shoot may be someone we know and maybe even love. There 's most likely more but that's all that come to mind quickly.
Prepare to be ready, anytime, anywhere.

Mixed feelings on this one. From outright rage to intense heart-sickness...
My grandson has ADHD. And at times, I can hear him describing such a scene, in the same monotone... And I fear for him. And he's about the same age.
I pray I never have to hear about something like this in my family.
It could be worse!

Really sick and sad at the same time. I loathe what he did and hedeserves to be punished but I feel sorry for him....whatever the reason no 17 year old deserves to be that messed up. Someone somewhere let him down big time.
That's just horrible. I wonder if he's got a father. I didn't see it in the story.

I'm interested in his background before this. Was he anti social, did he hurt things before - were there signs? I haven't been able to shake it since reading about it soon after it was first posted. Like mkh said, sick and sad at the same time.
What really chilled me was the 911 tape. Maybe he was in shock, but so calm...and still so self centered to be concerned about how he didn't like it, how he'll have nightmares - but no 'OH GOD WHAT HAVE I DONE?! MY MOM...MY SISTER' Nothing that sounds like he's sorry for them, just that he's disappointed with how it made HIM feel. A sociopath.
And saying he used a gun because he didn't think it would hurt?! I know many close to me think I'm overprotective, but that's exactly why I am extremely strict with video games and what my kid's watch on TV. To be that desensitized to violence, to think it won't HURT?! That's sticking with me too. How can a kid that age think that death itsn't messy and painful? My heart just breaks...
I can't imagine the horror for all of them. He told the operator he doesn't want any visits from family
A lot like where I live now. The Local Sheriff is a good 45 minutes away. The closest town LEO's, if they'll come this way are 11 miles of country roads. We shoot coyotes in our yard quite frequently and bother no one with the report of the gun. My neighbors have been shooting Dove since the season opened in their fields and we're all used to it. Hear shooting, check the calendar! Yep, hunting season!
I moved out to the Country 11 years ago and will never live "In Town" ever again!
We don't depend on the LEO's to save us. Their job is to bring the chalk!
But yea, I carry all day, every day out here.
What have you done to prepare for the end of civilization as we know it?
My impression, from what I read, is that he is just an evil person hanging onto the last vestiges of a conscience that will soon be fully extinguished.
He he been out and randomly killed some stranger I expect he would not have turned himself in but instead would have putrefied into a full blown serial killer.
I will shed no tears for him.
IMO.....if he had a father, they wouldn't have to consider the death penalty......he'd take care of that.
And we can all assume that there are still plenty more individuals out there just like this...a crime looking for a place to happen.
Pretty difficult to understand...actually, I cannot.
