  • Shootings......WTF?

    I'm guessing everyone has already been informed of the recent Elementary School shooting in the US today. Sad day, and I wish all the best(whatever that may be), to each family involved.

    This thread is just here, to try and understand what the fuck is going on. Is this a Western society thing, or what? What brings people to the edge like this? Is it boredom? Bad parenting? The Press? I just don't get it. What makes a thrill killing madman?

    With guys like Dahmer, and Bundy, I kind of understand their crazy, psycho-sexual drive, that made them who they are(or were), but these guys who just snap, I really don't understand. Like, what's the goal, or drive to do such a thing? We aren't living in a third world society, or anything, where you might have to do some dasterdly shit to get by, so what's the deal?

    Post whatever you want on the topic. I'm just curious what other think of this kind of shit.

      Needless to say, I'm ashamed he's a part of my family. The vast amount of ignorance required to make such a statement, just blows my mind.

        I think the Media is partly to blame.

        I know they have to cover a story like this, but there's also such a thing as overkill. The more the Media analyzes and talks endlessly about it, the more likely you're going to have copycats who want their 15 minutes of fame.

          Yeah, I've been leaning that way as of late as well. I understand the curiosity of it all, but what more can be said, other than the facts? The coverage this stuff gets, is insane. 24/7 for three days, to tell us the exact same story over and over.

          However, I am just as guilty in being interested in the macabre, so who is really to blame? What came first? Our curiosity in such events, or the exploitation of them?

              The media does seem to almost set the bar in terms of presenting this atrocity as the next and biggest thing in terms of school killings. This one is BIGGER than Columbine MORE GHASTLY than Virginia Tech BLOODIER and MORE SENSELESS than the Aurora Movie Plex Massacre. SEE the grieving parents THRILL to the heroic efforts of first responders WEEP with our nation's leaders as they try to make sense of this most senseless tragedy. Coming to an elementary school near you--this Winter! It's all very sick and all very sad, which leads me to conclude that we are all very sick and all very sad.

                The media is definitely partly to blame when they are interviewing the damn 5 year olds and asking specifically what happend

                But until we know what drove the man to kill his own family and many innocent children it will be just speculation of course.

                My gumption is he had the problems outlined and abundant for the world to see and family to see and they looked past it so he went off the deep end.

                People these days are completely and utterly shelfish if the beacon is not on them so they lose it.

                  In a world of 7 billion people, every once in a while, people are gonna do stuff like this and it will continue ad infinitum. As the population continues to grow, so will the likelihood of horrific aberrant acts caused by disturbed individuals. The phenomenon of mass shootings has become a sort of fad among the disturbed. These people are hateful and they have an interest in inflicting the most damage possible, while creating the most media coverage. This is a contest among the truly evil that will never stop, unless Christ or something puts their money where there mouth is and intervenes to stop this shit. Horrible shit happens daily world wide though. The four Nigerians burned alive and filmed a little while ago, etc. and etc. There is nothing we can do but individually reject those dark thoughts that enter our own minds every once and while and stay on the side of light. Be good.

                    The school shooting yesterday is (in my opinion) worse than the rest simply because it was at an elementary school. That kind of news is a lot easier to swallow when adults die, but little kids? I almost wept like a child.

                    I went to Yahoo to check out the story. Upon clicking the video, I had to sit through a 15 second commercial featuring Larry the Cable Guy pitching Prilosec before the video began. The fact that advertisers would use an opportunity like this to push their products is absolutely disgusting.

                    For the longest time, I've wanted something to prove me wrong, to show me that humans aren't terrible creatures. The whole dilemma only reaffirms my belief.

                      I find it funny how when he was more popular the media blamed Marilyn Manson for all the school shootings because of their song Get Your Gunn which isnt even about a GUN but about a doctor. The media is what will be the world's downfall.

                        What I dont get about this shooting is how is it different then any other school massacre? Yes they were all small children but you may have not heard of the Bathe School Massacre in Bathe Michigan, maybe you have Im not sure.

                        But my point is there were plenty of school shootings in the 1920's and the 1970's and now people are up in arms about guns. Really? I mean come on talk about what the schools can do to prevent this. And since schools do not have much money then it should be the utmost priority of each state to give schools more funding to cover these costs.

                            You know it! With the trayvon murder down in Flordia i'm suprised your state hasn't changed policy outright already!!!

                            Will guns be banned absolutely not but will they be harder to obtain probably especially semi-automatics now. I'm locked and loaded and stocked up.

                            I suggest anyone who feels the need to be protected to arm themselves now as I have and I even have my ccw.

                              Im very liberal but I dont think gun control is the issue here.
