Bummer to see another hurdle
Bummer to see another hurdle
As if the antis panties weren't already in a wad. They were already screaming about people shot at gun shows. I saw this mentioned on a leftist blog site this morning and dind't even bother to read it because I already know everything they are going to say.
I can't help but think that there is more to this story and that it is going to be a strange twist.
1) it was a teenage family member
2) the Fox article talks about the parent being publicly religious. Please don't take my meaning the wrong way, but this seems to be a factor in many repressive and abusive households.
3) he was charged with murder and child abuse (?). The last one is strange and tells me that there is definitely some mental or psychological issues at play here.
4) while it may be SOP given the age the fact that the police are not willing to divulge details about conversations with the shooter or motives suggests it isn't mundane.
I honestly hope that criminal charges follow for whoever gave that kid access to guns.
Shooter's ID, imo, should only be released if in the best interest of the public. Ie: he/she got away or if acting in concert, one escaped. Otherwise, there are indeed times where freedom of information hurts and encourages others to run out onto that field.
Obviously he killed his entire family because he had access to a gun. Couldn't have been any other issues there.
A - That trustworthy bastion of integrity and diligent accuracy: the mainstream media.
Considering that Westboro Baptist Church members are also "publicly religious" I would say the description is disingenuous at best. The last time I saw religion portrayed positively in the media was Little House on the Prairie.
^^^^^^^^TheMSM is a double edge sword^^^^^^^^^^
If they blasted the evening news with that revelation,(just like in DC) they would have a lot of 'Splainin' to do, in that how all those thugs are killing people in those towns....
Towns that are ANTI GUN..
They DON"T want to do that now do they?
1) Growing up I was friends with a family that lived down the road. The father was a local school superintendent and pastor at a church. They wore their religion like a badge and professed it frequently and openly and it was clearly an almost fanatical part of their lives. He and his wife also abused the children, sometimes physically but mostly mentally. Finally after some burglary and vandalism events of our home, my family got the police involved and the parents were charged and put under court supervision. They promptly moved out of state to who knows where.
2) In high school, we once had a substitute teacher towards the end of the year who instead of teaching the math subject that he was substituting for, proceeded to tell us a number of stories about how he had been miraculously saved from death by Jesus, who must have some plan for him. We learned when school commenced the next year that he was arrested for child molestation.
3) I worked with an individual who was a downright crook and a thief. He even tried to steal some software license dongles worth over $10K but was caught and claimed he borrowed them to work at home and promptly returned them. This individual also wore his religion as a shield and used it to profess how good of a person he was, when in fact he was a real creep.
I have known, and been friends with, people who are/were truly religious and they don't act or talk like these people did. It is difficult to put into words in a thread post, but anyone who has had experience with these types knows what I am talking out. There is something off about them. So, when I read the news article and it made a couple of points about the guy being 'publicly religious' and then charges of child abuse in the home, it set off the alarm bells that reminded me of these three instances.
You did not show a connection of how the folks being religious caused them to be morons.
