School Shooter: ‘I Didn’t Realize’ They Would Die:

So last night I watched the abomination of a news program that they call Nightline. Ted Koppel must be rolling in his grave. Hold on a sec….Wikipedia says he’s still alive..anyway he must not have been happy with this episode.

Like I posted yesterday most of the program focused on Bethel High School shooter Evan Ramsey. As expected he blamed everyone but himself for the shootings. He blamed bullies, he blamed the kids that gave him the gun, he blamed the kid that taught him how to shoot the gun, he blamed a video game, more than likely Doom, for his alleged idea that death wasn’t permanent, he blamed people who he told that he was going to shoot up the school. He blamed everyone except the guy who did the actual killing, himself.

“I honestly believed that if you shoot somebody, that they would get back up,” Ramsey told ABC News in a recent interview at the Arizona prison where he is serving a 210-year sentence. It’s hard to accept, he admits, but Ramsey said his naiveté left him unable to grasp that firing a gun in the real world is different from firing one in a video game: “I didn’t realize that you shoot somebody, they die.”

“If somebody had said something,” he insisted, “my crime wouldn’t have happened.”

I honestly believe that you’re full of crap.

They also had some twatwaffle on there who did a study about school shootings and did basically the same thing that Ramsey did, blamed everyone but the shooter themselves. He made this quote about bullying in schools…

But the work of prevention should start well before plans for violence take hold, said Pollock. Ramsey, like most shooters, was bullied, and until teachers and counselors deal seriously with bullying and other problems by creating “an emotional connection” with students, Pollock said, schools will suffer from the violence of “a meaner, more vicious society.”

I notice he didn’t mention the parents that are responsible for enabling their bully children. In my opinion, the schools don’t deal with the bullies because their parents get all bent out of shape that someone would have the nerve to accuse their precious crotchfruit of being a bully.

    LMAO…Why does this remind me of a Saturday Night Live Skit that went something like this:

    Caveman Lawyer: Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I’m just a caveman. I fell on some ice and later got thawed out by some of your scientists. Your world frightens and confuses me! Sometimes the honking horns of your traffic make me want to get out of my BMW.. and run off into the hills, or wherever.. Sometimes when I get a message on my fax machine, I wonder: “Did little demons get inside and type it?” I don’t know! My primitive mind can’t grasp these concepts. But there is one thing I do know – when a man like my client slips and falls on a sidewalk in front of a public library, then he is entitled to no less than two million in compensatory damages, and two million in punitive damages. Thank you.

    Oh…I left out the REALLY important part…

    Dear Evan….you worthless pile of cowardly excrement…no sympathy…none. Cry your pitiful life away. The ONLY way I can see placing blame ANYWHERE besides YOURSELF is on your parents….for not aborting you before the first trimester was complete. Do the world a favor…perform the abortion yourself you spineless, sorry excuse, waste of oxygen.

    I remember having a documentary about Evan Williams shoved down our throats multiple times in high school. It included interviews, in which he played dumb, stock footage of the shooting et cetera. He really only jumped on the ‘don’t kill people’ media circuit to try to get his double life sentence reconsidered. That apparently didn’t work, so now he’s on the ‘I didn’t know you could kill people’ media circuit. He should have stuck with the public service announcement approach. What a douchebag.

    It’s pretty simple if you want my opinion. Which, you probably don’t but I’ll give it to you anyway.

    Kids shouldn’t pick on other kids, beat them, or shove them around or make them feel worthless. They can be held responsible for the isolation and worthlessness some kids start to feel after it’s gone on for a long time.

    Kids who know their friends are planning something and don’t say anything can be held responsible for accessory before the fact. Knowing and not saying anything is a terrible thing to do. Inaction like that is just not okay. Scared or not, you get off your ass and tell someone. Screw your “social status” – tell someone even if you fear retaliation.

    Kids who give other kids guns are responsible for facilitating murder if they kill someone with that gun. Why would you give another kid a gun? That’s just stupid.

    Kids who teach/train other kids to shoot… well, they may not know their friends are planning something. But common sense says that if your friend suddenly has an interest in guns and only wants to use YOURS and doesn’t want their parents to know about it – it’s not a real interest. If it were, they’d go about it another way. You know – safely.

    However.

    We all are responsible for the choices we make in life. School shooters ARE bullies. Why do people defend school shooters but not the bullies who picked on them? Everyone knows that victims of bullying turn into bullies. The kids who shove people around were probably pushed around, too. They just express their pain and anger in the moment. But school shooters save up that pain and plan and plot and try to wipe everyone out so they never have to deal with their problems ever again.

    And somehow there is more sympathy and pity for the bullies who KILL people… than the bullies who shove people around.

    People think that the bullies in school are just mean and cruel and there is no reason behind what they do. There’s nothing going on in their lives. But we don’t know that for sure. They could be abused at home, have too much pressure on them from their parents. Maybe they’re unhappy with life. They bully other kids because it ensures that the attention stays off of their flaws and always on the weak kids in school.

    And it’s those weak kids in school who never stand up RIGHT THEN AND THERE who turn around, pick up a gun and wipe them out once and for all. They don’t even give them a chance to reconcile or solve the problem. They don’t even try.

    Some of them never utilize their resources. They don’t go to the teachers or their parents. Hell, their parents are so shocked they never know what to think because they never saw it coming. They don’t even want to solve the problem, they just want to annihilate it.

    Yeah, we need to address abuse in schools but not because some kids kill each other over it. It’s a problem by itself and we need to teach our kids how to respect each other. But we also need to teach our kids how to solve their problems and control their behavior.

    Yeah, schools can’t really deal with bullying because parents of the bullies rush to the defense of their children and they don’t want to believe it’s true. The schools are asking for a lawsuit anytime they punish someone for a non-physical act, or even a physical one that doesn’t leave marks.
