Current Events

Everyone's talking about it so I don't feel the need to go on and on about the events of the last few days.
An unbelievably disturbed individual gunned down innocents receiving higher education.
We've been saturated with the details by the media. They live for this and we lap it up.

We keep hearing the same question over and over: Why didn't anyone stop him before he committed this act?
Let's get real here. This world is full of weird people. In my line of work, I see at least 20 nutjobs a week.
Any one of those nutjobs could come in here with a gun and kill us all.
How can you tell the difference between kooky and dangerous?
Yes, his stories were disturbing but I don't see anyone locking up Dean Koontz or Stephen King.
It's not always society's job to diagnose and fix broken people. Where were his parents?
I heard on some news show that his aunt said he's always been disturbed and his family worried about him. Did they worry enough to put him under a doctor's care? No. They sent him to college.

But the country is looking for someone to blame. Isn't that just like us?

Unfortunately, the gun laws might take the blame. Now the moonbats are talking about tighter gun control.
Please. Surely, anyone with a shred of sense knows that this killer was disturbed enough that if he couldn't walk into a store to buy a gun, he'd find another way to get one or find another way to kill people.
He was psychotic. He was out of his fucking mind and his goal in his life was to end the lives of others.
That's what's great about psychotics. They have follow-through. Me, I quit in the middle of everything (just look at this blog!). But a really good psychotic will do whatever it takes to achieve his goal.

The Virginia Tech killer would have done this no matter what.
The "why" of the situation might make us all feel a little better, but it doesn't always prevent the next one from happening.
