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.
