~ I know what you mean. Now so many youth are so crazy and cruel. Luckily this case was prevented. Sadly shootings happening more & more. I keep hoping and praying for the world to get better or at least safer for all.

Apparently, these kids are troubled, and need help, which is continually being made more difficult to get. If only we had something, a group of rule makers in this country, something like a governing body, of sorts, who could make mental health care more accessible, and - this is a shot in the dark - perhaps make it more difficult for people who do show these signs to, oh, I don't know, have access to weaponry that they could use to take so many human lives. I mean, what sort of group could have the power to accomplish such things?
It feels like we may have had a leader who, at one time, tried to make it easier for people to have access to mental health care (and health care in general), and make it more difficult for those who shouldn't have a gun to get one. And then, someone went and started to reverse all that.
Chainsaw!...Buddy!! Right as usual. Here's a thought... let's stop blaming the kids and start asking ourselves what it is in our society that is not only contributing but promoting this behavior. Since online bullying has contributed to more teenage suicides then ever in our history, perhaps we could set up some kind of structure for behavior by those who use it. The laws in this country are woefully inadequate and behind in creating a system of law that corresponds with its use.
Lets work harder on bullying at schools that drive those who use it to destroy and belittle anyone they choose by making a mockery of every and any one they find to tear down on it. And while we're at it let's remember that the only President in history to offer free rehab instead of declaring a "war on drugs" and try following that method; which has proved more successful than anything that's come after it and cure the patients instead of vilifying them.
But that's just a thought. We need to stop blaming victims and instead, do what we can to save them from lives that lead only to violence without any other options being available.
We are and have been, too busy looking for someone to blame instead of examining the reasons this is happening.
@Janine The Barefoot comes back and hits it out of the park! Exactly right, too. The way we treat those with mental illness and related problems is just atrocious.
