Dec 23, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Examiner.com

After the shock wore off of hearing what happened in Newtown, Connecticut, I knew "violent movies" and "violent games" would be blamed for Adam Lanza's horrific assault on December 14th.

Games and movies are not to be blame. Two things are to blame:

Lack of funding for mental heath and lazy ass parents who allow their kids act like their prince and princcess who can never do wrong.

Don't help when so call mental and childen heath agents give parents go head with "autimis" "AHDD" blaming milk, peanuts etc for kids act like spoiled enternal babies who need mommy to do everything and be given everth they ask for.

I agree! It is beyond me how anybody can think that kids can sit and "practice" killing other people every single day, usually hours at a time and not be affected by it. There are the video games, television, movies, music, etc, etc, etc - and what is the most ignorant thing of all is the parents who allow their kids to be "entertained" by this crap, even buying it for them!!! How many are going to end up just like Nancy Lanza with their kid killing them?

Adam Lanza was on an anti-psychotic drug, but it made him worse. Anti-psychotic drugs often do more harm than good. But you will not hear that from the government or the media because they all are paid off by the big pharmaceutical companies.

WASHINGTON ó A majority of the donations made to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, one of the nationís most influential disease advocacy groups, have come from drug makers in recent years, according to Congressional investigators.

The alliance, known as NAMI, has long been criticized for coordinating some of its lobbying efforts with drug makers and for pushing legislation that also benefits industry.
