First I want to say that my family and I send our thoughts and prayers to all of the families tonight and for the foreseeable future!
Today's lawlessness is not fathomable and or imaginable in any realm, and yet it happened. The heinous actions carried out today by this young animal are nothing shy of the fore warnings of what is on the horizon!
I am NOT tying to condone his actions on any level! I am however saying that this is what our society has allowed. The decline of values, and the increase of stupidity!
I was born in the mid 70's. I was in school up through the early 90's. I remember when I grew up there were consequences for your actions! People were more honest, and less crooked. The honesty came from the respect people held for one another. The lower percentage of the crooked was due to the fact that people were not out to slit each other's throats over a nickel.
Today, there are no values taught. Today, parents are happy to make babies and few are willing to be parents. Too many depend on the system to raise their kids. Too many send their kids off to school with no sense of value and or honor and so the kids are raised with no guidelines of what is right or wrong. All they know is how to not get caught. If they get caught, they figure out how to avoid that stigma next time.
No respect for one another, no fear of consequences... No reason to worry about actions that are legal or not.
Go to another country and break their laws... I dare anyone reading this to go to Thailand and do some stupid shit! You will be punished very quickly and hard! Who does not remember the American that went over to the east and was vandalizing cars? He was caned! An American acting like an ass in another country got his ass beat! GOOD!
Go to Afghanistan or Iran and do something, hell there do anything! They will happily reserve a block of time on TV to butcher your head clean off your shoulders, after you are left to rot in a cell for however long they choose. You have no rights there, as it should be for criminals.
Why is it that no one teaches respect. Why is it so fun to make babies and those making them are so happy to do more work avoiding their responsibilities than to step up and be what they are expected to be.
No childhood is perfect. No memory is clean of any kind of slights... However, things today are heading into a very bad and dark place. All kids are in some way shape or form dented and damaged goods. Anyone who tells you that they have no issues from their childhood is stricken a selective-memory and lying through their pie hole!
All those who believe in and support the Tree Hugging Hippie attitude that making a kid sit down and do nothing for a few minutes and calling it a time out... That gets you NO WHERE! That time-out is nothing but them getting a chance on your time to plot what is next!
I kid acts out, you correct them. They act out again, you correct them with the appropriate increase of severity! I do not believe in beating a child. I will however say that there are some kids that need that these days! They understand nothing else. You can thank those hippies for that very thing!
Too many self indulgent morons are out there screaming how correction ruins people. Really? WHEN in history has this kind of acts happened!? When have you ever seen a 24 year old guy run out and KILL 26 people and 85% of that body count were CHILDREN!? You want to tell me how corporal punishment is ruining society? Personally, I think that the LACK OF punishment and the severely lax judicial system is what has failed us. The problem is not so much the kids today! I think it is those who have been making them and continue to do so that is the problem!
Too many happy to lay down to have fun! NOT ENOUGH willing to stand up for what they have created! NOT ENOUGH willing to do what is right, only what they want to do!
TOO MUCH has been allowed and NOT ENOUGH enforced... I see a pattern here!
Too bad that too few see the problem, and too many are only adding to it!
