pute kisses like a man: did the people in the colorado movie theater have a feud with whatever his name was that shot the place up? nope. do we accept that this guy shot the place up? sure. what's the reason... he was unhappy.


It's different. Mass killings are unfortunately common and sometimes have minimal triggers We've seen this at least since Charles Whitman.

This is different because it seems to be targeted at a specific individual or individuals. We don't see that very often where one person specifically targets another person over a single slight.

Road rage might be a close example, though it usually involves both sides acting like jerks and one person who decides it's time to "keep it real".

Oh, and as crotchety as I am, I disagree that 11 is way too old to have thrown something into someone's yard. 11 is still pretty young, the chickens are an attractive nuisance, chalk is innocuous (and the kid knew it). Naturally, the kid probably knows not to do it, but seriously, the majority of Farkers are still farking around in various ways until they're in their dotage.

Maybe some of you aren't TFers, but just reading the TF threads every day makes it clear that the 11 year is way young enough to still be goofing around.

you know the scary thing about mass murderers? they used to be called heroes:

someone back in the day went to the oracle of delphi and asked, who was the last great hero?

the oracle recounted the story of a man who lost a legal dispute with a local city official (of some type). in response to his lost legal case, he went to the building were all the local children went to school. he barred the doors and burned the building to the ground, killing all of the city's children.

according to the oracle, that was the last great hero.

/ although, the word hero, back in the day, might have meant something a little different than it does today.

Jument: noblewolf: Burchill: The most amazing thing about the Second Amendment is that of all the peoples in the world, Americans are the ones you'd trust least with firearms.

And can you explain to us why your opinion is thus?

Because America is basically the best part of the first world, in many ways, and should be basically the most enlightened country on the planet. But look around. It's chock full of unbelievable stupidity, selfishness, short-sightedness. It's a shiathole relative to what it could and should be.


Economic activity != your subjective definition of enlightenment

pedrop357: This is like someone trying to deconstruct a crashed plane dealing with people who really believe it randomly fell out of the sky (a stunningly rare event) and pointing out that some of the evidence bears a strong resemblance to specific modes of crash that might signal a specific type or subtype of equipment failure.


What evidence? I just read through the article again, there's NOTHING that points to any sign of a feud, or any sign that the little girl or her parents are culpable in any way. You certainly haven't mentioned anything in any of your posts to support your supposition.

Seriously, name one piece of evidence that lead you to your conclusion. You have farking nothing backing this up, just a vague gut feeling.
