It was in Pakistan and India, where he did his experiment. Can u imagine? Having an education where we choose what want we want to learn, and discussing it w/ others, and then doing it ? That's almost like... real life.

If we are talking about the same I case, I think that the most messed up part about it was that the teen planned to kill his 12 year old girlfriends parents as well.

Calm down Oppressors... Oppressors are 1 step away from being Child Molesters.

A cell phone is a good device for one's own protection, in cases of emergency, and abusive men try to limit their wives phone calls in Eastern Kentucky, so... I disagree w/ u there. Young folks need autonomy and freedom... if they're supposed to be American citizens by the time they are 18, then they need to understand how to utilize all of this freedom in a safe and responsible manner.

I agree, they should understand how to act safely and responsibly, but a phone will not accomplish that. I did not have a phone when I was a child and I did not need one, no child does. Your remark about eastern KY is out of place and makes no sense.

And as far as autonomy goes, children cannot enter into a contract or own property, they are not afforded the same rights as adults.

I understand they can't enter into contracts, but if I'm raising my children to be smart thinkers in this world, I'll allow a certain degree of freedom so they can make their own decisions, make mistakes, and keep on moving, since that's how we all learn.

Okay, I'll go along with that. The whole thing about wife beaters still has nothing to do with this thread. It is off topic.

The whole cell phone argument has NOTHING to do w/ this thread, yet there it was. Only a person who wants to restrict their children's freedom would voluntarily talk about that. I didn't bring it up, you did, and since you did, restricting phone calls is one tactic of an oppressor, and possible abuser.

This is where the phone comment originated, so no, I did not bring it up. I also agree that children are taught lies about history. Still want to accuse me of being a possible abuser?

But that's not news. He was just saying it could be some spoiled kid b.s., which it could be. You're the one who was spouting off about how you'd love to take children's phones away from them. A boy in Louisville Schools punched a teacher for stealing his property, and he was right for doing so. That's not right, for somebody to steal your things, esp $300 phones. It can used for subversion, but it can also be used for emergencies... how many camera phones have picked up some wild and crazy teacher just going ballistic on some poor sap ? In fact, w/o videotape, it's hard to determine what's real, and what isn't. So yeah. Just knock it off.

I never "spouted off about taking childrens' phones away". There are rules about cell phones in schools for a reason.

Yeah, so teachers don't get caught when they're bullying the students, which happens all of the time. Always remember, the only thing that saves you from a bad guy w/ a gun, is a good guy w/ a gun. No guns... no cameras... what is this place, Auschwitz? E-town? Northpoint?

So . . . you have nothing to say as usual. You have been unable to counter any points. Just keep trying to deflect.

I disagree about children not having phones. I never had one growing up because the Zack Morris cell phones just weren't that practical. Me and the wife decided lust wasn't enough to keep us together so being able to call my kids anytime I want when they aren't here is just flipping great.

I heard a phone interview with the father after all this happened and he thanked God for waking him up to use the bathroom, for helping him fight the guy off and just about every other thing out there. Sometimes the overly religious types make it hard on the children living in the home. Not hard enough to kill them but its still hard.

I'm interested in seeing how this turns out.

I think it's both... or, all three. It's personal responsibility, the family, and the community. All are involved in a person's growth. I wished I was rescued from my abusive home. I wish just if somebody would have just told me that I didnt deserve the abuse, or to stand up for myself... instead, the community all just basked in my subserviance, and willingness to let others make fun of me, just so long as I was being talked about, and got attention, I thought I had friends. But I really didn't, and nobody thought to tell me to stand up, or be proud of myself, or any empowerment whatsoever. It was like the basketball coach and academic team coach, and the teachers, they all wanted me to sit down and shut up, be a passive sheep, and the more I was obedient, and regurgitated their own ideas, which really, all folks like... the sound of their own ideas, back in their own ears... and I was rewarded w/ certificates, and other awards... straight A's... except 1 f-in teacher, who had it out for me. She wanted me to get a B, just so she can say that she permanently wounded me... just to get me to always needing to seek her approval, b/c she hated me... b/c I would fall asleep in her US history class, where'd she teach us lies, on top of lies, on top of lies. And then to have folks who u were entrusted to, totally fail in loving you, and keeping you safe, and making you proud of yourself, and teacbing you that you have to go out in the world and make something of yourself, by yourself... they did the opposite. Just when I started questioning things, folks were so callously dismissive, and trivialized my experiences, that it made it seem as if I was crazy... but I wasn't. I was right on the money. 5,000 assaults on an innocent child, demands 5,000 hits on that abuser... times the person's body weight, over the child's. That's justice. To enslave them. To smash their souls and dignity, for 18 years, or so. That's an eye for an eye. But nobody listened... so when you know something's wrong, but nobody is there to validate your experiences, you may react in a way, that society won't accept. PLUS, he didn't kill nobody. ALSO, he wasn't the trigger man... but we also dont know if the parents did anything in this case... but it seems like they would have, for him to react like this... I hope it's not some spoiled kid b.s....
