I think it's sad that in a moment of shock and grief for the woman she has to field questions from the media, who like ravenous vultures descend upon every carcass involved and pick it clean till there's nothing left before moving on to the next tragedy.

An unfortunate byproduct of the perspective that Americans now have on what qualifies as news.

Uh, being on Fark, you might notice that this is SOP in newsrooms the world over now.

I'm really not concerned for her grief. Nor are most people.

That is certainly a departure from the "My boy was a good boy. He would never hurt anyone" we normally hear.

Mental health issues in a (adult) child are not indicative of failure as a parent. Stigmatizing parents and patients with mental health problems indicates that you are more of a failure as a person than she is as a parent.

He was mentally ill.  How is that her fault?  Did she give him food every day laced with schizophrenic powder until it finally took?  You really are a repugnant piece of work.

I'm forced to wonder: what is it like to know you raised someone who did this? Maybe you did fail, or maybe you didn't, but as she herself pointed out, you'll never be sure, because you can never ask why.

I can only imagine that if she did fail, this feeling has to be punishment enough. And if she did not fail, then we have what amounts to another victim.

This. Sounds to me like she has a better grip on the reality of the situation than many. It takes some courage to be frank about thoughts like this, and so I am less inclined to feel like she was at fault in the matter than if she were in denial.

As best as anyone could determine at the time he got that clearance, he was not dangerous. He did eventually start showing signs, but not more than a couple of weeks ago: long after he got his clearance, and, odds are, long after any kind of annual checkup would have been performed.

Why should he have been punished for what he might have done? Our nation has done enough failed experiments along those lines, and thoroughly ruined the concept for everybody.

Dylan Klebold's mother on her praying for her son to commit suicide before he killed anyone else at Columbine HIgh School:

She says, "I would ask him to forgive me, for being his mother and never knowing what was going on inside his head, for not being able to help him, for not being the person he could confide in."

paygun: That's messed up.  Has anyone interviewed the gun to ask why it killed those people?


I don't know what it is inside your brain that fails to register this:

A gun is a tool.  A tool that when used properly, gives a human the ability to kill multiple people, quickly, and from a distance.  Beside "target shooting" the main design and purpose of a gun, is to kill.  Animals, people, etc.  It is a tool to kill.  Before you go ahead with your BS about how knives are to kill, or cars could be used for it, or whatever otherwise useful items kills someone, and is thrown about as ":needing regulations" by your ilk, I will point out that your gun can't filet a steak, your gun can't transport you to another place efficiently and quickly.  A gun is a tool that give humans the ability to kill rapidly and with ease.  there are really no other purposes for it.

That man, bought his gun, legally, the day prior to going on a rampage.  A rampage that ended in multiple deaths.  The gun gave him the means to kill people.

How you and your ilk can try to defeat common sense regulation by wrapping it up in the guise of "rights" or "patriotism" is clearly a mental issue.

in short, EABOD.

I have just as much sympathy for her as I do the other victims families, perhaps more. It's not like she deserved to wake up one day and find out her son just went on a shooting spree. Not only does she have to cope with the loss of a child, but she has to deal with the knowledge that he did this terrible thing. I'm also sure that there's been news crews parked outside her home day and night since the guys name was made public, at least the other families don't have to deal with that on top of their loss.

Yeah it's her fault he had documented mental health issues.

Try being a parent of a schizophrenic child who is unstable even with meds. Are they going to harm you or what's going to happen to them when you're too old to manage them?

Yeah, it's all her fault.
