That's just it. The rising level of violence and lawlessness that we are witnessing. Children are killing other children. Children are killing themselves because of out of control bullying. Children are killing their parents and parents their children. Now three mass murders just since July not even counting the one that almost killed Congresswoman Giffords. The latest one involving kindergartners.

It's not just here either. In Norway, 77 were killed in 2011 by a bombing in downtown Oslo and a shooting massacre at a youth camp outside the capital by the same man.

Just seems like the incidences are becoming more and more frequent over the past decades. It should be disturbing to us all.

We've lost our moral compass. I pray it's found again somehow. We will reap what we have sown.

A teacher once said to me back in the 1990s, "Our children have become our national debt." She was more right than she even knew.

Well it seems to me, those so called "liberal" school teachers that you whine constantly about saved a lot of kids lives today from parents reports on the news at great risk to their own.
So I'd be hanging my head in shame for making a comment like that.

I guess nuts were around even back then....

The worst mass school murder in American history took place on May 18,1927 in Bath Township, Mich., when a former school board member set off three bombs that killed 45 people.

I've seen him blame liberals for focusing on the guns. If he's blaming liberals for the shooting itself, he'd be wrong.

I agree with your point about anti depressant medications. But then there was that man in PA who killed his 7 year old in the car after trying to sell his guns at a gun store; it was an accident; many gun deaths caused by accidents, kids finding them etc.
I know gun laws don't solve the problem, but not much good comes from having one either beyond a false sense of security or thinking of your gun as the final solution to a problem.

No telling if that is the case or not. His facebook page reveals very little, although theatre and violent video games interests seem to be a strange juxtaposition....
Whoever thought it was a good idea for children to have video games where they shoot people in order to win needs to be arrested and sent to a deserted island somewhere in the Pacific.

We stopped caring about our children a long time ago - OUR future. Now they've stopped caring.

For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind. Hosea 8:7

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

I don't think that there are any answers; some people snap, remember that massacre of those girls at the Amish school a few years ago? Do you know the statistics on the murder rate? I think they are down. So sorry for those families, this is horrible.

On ESPNís First Take show yesterday, Parker said,ďmy question, which is just a straight honest question, is [Griffin] a brother, or is he a cornball brother?Ē

In an interview with USA Today, Griffin made his stance clear on the issue of his blackness:ďFor me, you donít ever want to be defined by the color of your skin. You want to be defined by your work ethic, the person that you are, your character, your personality. Thatís what Iíve tried to go out and do. I am an African-American in America. That will never change. But I donít have to be defined by that.Ē

TO the LOWLIFE R PARKER and those who think like he does RG111 IS IN A HIGHER CLASS THAN ALL OF YOU WHO THINK THEY DEFINE BLACKNESS FU ALL THANK YOU RG111
