Thread: Shooting Near Columbine

gina - 5/9/2019 at 12:11 AM

People want to associate it with Columbine, because it was near there, but this just seemed like a personal thing between 1 guy who wanted to have transgender surgery going from female to male and reportedly he was bullied about it.

Why do people think it is okay to take their aggression out on their classmates?

The worst part is for all sorts of reasons, murders and shootings like these have become a "and the beat goes on" attitude.

Lots of ^&%$# people out there that feel they have to resort to violence. May the perpetrators realize and suffer the justice they deserve.

The more it happens the more other people on the edge are compelled to do it too. Not sure if they have said that "F*ck society" car was one of the shooters cars or not or if they are just saying "linked to"? Our society is indeed crumbling. We are dying as a nation. A school shooting, a church shooting, at work, hate crimes, race, religion. Fortunately there are more good people than bad, but the bad people so painfully and recklessly inflict their violent visions on the rest of us that it makes one wonder where we are going to end up.

Lots more dead people, less people caring.

It is to get people desensitized to violence and people being murdered but it is also to get people to agree to get guns out of everybody's hands, to disarm a nation. People cannot be subjugated if the public is armed.

"It is to get people" "it is also to get people"

Wait, that almost sounds like you think mass shooting events are orchestrated in order to achieve some goal of disarming or purposefully planned with frequency to desensitize. That is messed up.

Not "almost sounds like". That is exactly what he is saying - standard issue paranoid line, one of Alex Jones' go-to themes. And yes, more than messed up. Really twisted.

We know that the events occur, you have to look at who is behind them, and why. In some of the news coverage in some events there were some of the SAME people there, one of the places was Sandy Hook. Did Sandy Hook happen, YES, it was not a media lie. But how the media managed to videotape and interview some of the same people from another event shows that there are other things going on. Alex Jones did a big thing on this, which is why he said he did not believe the attack happened and he called it a false flag attack. I think the media gets used and/or is complicit in what they report and how they report it to influence/sway people a certain way.

People should look at WHY are all these things happening now at this point in time, doesn't it seem a little strange that in the last few years there have been all these mass shootings. WHY? Is there a bumper crop of dysfunctional people out there?

Clearly.

Gina, I might overlook some of your posts, but you believe some weird **** .

Nebish do you think it is all just happenstance that all these school shootings happen in just the last couple of years of so? There has to be a reason.

Reasons: Off the top - Easy access to weapons. Psych med overprescription. Isolation and poor social development from computer overuse, sugar overdose . . . that's all just for starters, basically a very f*cked up society.

Lots of reasons, plenty of rational causes to consider before leaping to more dazzling conclusions that fuel our fear/paranoia adrenaline addiction.

Poor Parenting.

Then it follows that measures need to be put in place to prevent "poor parenting." Not forcing women to have unwanted children is a good place to start.

Bullying, isolationist behavior by other kids, taunts, peer pressure, and hormonal swings can help push someone with mental health problems (major or minor) over the edge.

Also, notice how the knee jerks jump on about "gun control' so quick that sometimes it's before the national news has it reported.

Remember the one where a senator started tweeting about needing to "get those guns out of the hands of civilians" and tried to get rid of it when he was immediately told, "but this guy used a knife". Unfortunately, it was already out in the interwebs.

Sure, maybe on the news, which I dont watch. Around here on WP it is usually the gun-rights folks who jump in and turn mass murder shooting threads into second amendment arguments, every time, way louder than any gun control noise. Way.

Look at this thread, standard pattern here: starts off reporting event, then a few posts reply about society and so on, then the OP gets to their paranoid point about how its all a setup for gun seizure, which was the reason the thread was started. Then the next mention of gun control is about how all the gun control people jump the gun when these killings occur.

Every blessed time. Like clockwork. Gun rights the focus, not the massacre.
