These are photos of Jared Lee Loughner (Gabby Gifford's shooter), James E. Holmes (Colorado movie theater shooter), and Adam Lanza (Connecticut school shooter)
... all three of them have “dead eye” syndrome ....
"Take two now and cull a crowd in the morning . . . ."
It’s in their eyes,it always is.
It’s all in the eyes....the windows to the soul...
We forgot the Amish school kids....10 shot-5 dead.
The American Suicide Gunmen have joined the ranks of the Jihadist Suicide Bombers. Both are products of culture. Sad but true.
You nailed it. Plus in my opinion a want.need.desire to be famous. I found Morgan Freeman’s response on Facebook this morning very interesting. I know Mr Freeman is a flaming liberal but this time I believe he nails it.
Morgan Freeman’s brilliant take on what happened yesterday :
“You want to know why. This may sound cynical, but here’s why.
It’s because of the way the media reports it. Flip on the news and watch how we treat the Batman theater shooter and the Oregon mall shooter like celebrities. Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris are household names, but do you know the name of a single *victim* of Columbine? Disturbed
people who would otherwise just off themselves in their basements see the news and want to top it by doing something worse, and going out in a memorable way. Why a grade school? Why children? Because he’ll be remembered as a horrible monster, instead of a sad nobody.
CNN’s article says that if the body count “holds up”, this will rank as the second deadliest shooting behind Virginia Tech, as if statistics somehow make one shooting worse than another. Then they post a video interview of third-graders for all the details of what they saw and heard while the shootings were happening. Fox News has plastered the killer’s face on all their reports for hours. Any articles or news stories yet that focus on the victims and ignore the killer’s identity? None that I’ve seen yet. Because they don’t sell. So congratulations, sensationalist media, you’ve just lit the fire for someone to top this and knock off a day care center or a maternity ward next.
You can help by forgetting you ever read this man’s name, and remembering the name of at least one victim. You can help by donating to mental health research instead of pointing to gun control as the problem. You can help by turning off the news.”
You're right. Morgan Freeman is a flaming liberal. That response has been incorrectly attributed to him.
Morgan Freeman said that? No way!
The ruling class New Normal..
some of whom I name below welcome the horror as the easiest way of removing all the guns from the hands of citizens. Listen to them demand more and more laws and restrictions on who can own guns and and not a word about anything else.
Anti-social attention whoredom is twisted. Any public act demonstration a lack of self control which dehumanizes mankind is cheered on.
The man who shot up the school mentioned on the Net that he would be in the news the next day. Twisted individuals with anti-social personalities used to want to hide their problem from society. Now they are put front and center and celebrated by our twisted news and entertainment and Leftist political elite so that they can demolish Western moral and ethical foundations. It’s called cultural cleansing. They seem to be in the imp culture phase of “progress.” They are trying to recreate Sodom.
The eyes have it.
“You can help by donating to mental health research instead of pointing to gun control as the problem.”
...he misses one point and nails another. I would no sooner give to “mental health research” than I would to the BO campaign. This kid was a psycho. A medicated psycho. As long as there’s money in prescriptions, there will always be prescriptions.
Give teachers guns, get rid of “Gun Free Zone” signs and the problem will decrease. But Psychos will always be around.
Freeman complains that CNN made him famous?! That’s the same media that got his anti-American Marxist Kenyan buddy re-elected. They made BO a hero and a celebrity. What’s he got to complain about?
Oh please, spare me the asinine amateur psychology/pharmacology based on pictures.
People were making similar diagnoses OF THE WRONG PERSON when it was Ryan Lanza's picture out there.
The only reason you see anything is that YOU ALREADY KNOW THEY ARE MURDERERS.
Without that knowledge, they're just random goofballs and you wouldn't take a second glance at their pictures.
Given a random selection of 10 pictures of goofy looking white guys aged 16-25, with 5 of them just being random goofy looking white guys, and the other 5 murderers, you'd do no better than chance picking out the murderers.
The lack of an effective mental health system in this country is a national disgrace.
We are all at risk because we refuse to recognize mental illness, offer support and treatment in its early stages, and remove the dangerous from among us.
Instead, we want to remove the superficial method rather than acknowledge and treat the underlying cause.
Stop the kumbaya-takeawayweapons and give families effective options for getting these people off the streets.
Spoken as the family member of one who could have easily become an Adam Lanza.
They’re all young and male. Drugged up on mind-bending pharmaceuticals, perhaps. They don’t grow up as fast as they used to and it’s no wonder.
What I think I see is weakened minds having adverse reactions to the shock of the realization of having to live in a so-called adult world. They don’t know exactly what’s bothering them but there does seem to be something going on in their heads that they can’t process normally.
What if it was feminist society’s fault? Boys need to grow to be men and want to feel like men but this feministic society tends to impede their development. They might have male heroes that they see as being real men but they’ve been subjected to indoctrinations that try to thwart those primal instincts and sometimes, it backfires.
That’s the elephant in the room that many on the left (and, sadly, many on FR) refuse to acknowledge.
Maybe if they would legalize marijuana we wouldn’t have people walking around with a look like this on their face? /s
That is total garbage.
Threats of violence and suicide versus a near-normal life? The only difference is one small pill a day that works miracles.
Have you ever lived with a clinically depressed person, either unipolar or bipolar, who is untreated?
If not, shut up. I have. What you posted is ignorant balderdash.
