Prayers for the family, and the cessation of these types of family massacres.

I'm starting to believe that the gates of hell have opened and evil is walking the earth.

We have to be on guard from politians who want to "prevent these killings" by restricting certain rights, especially RKBA.

I’d say the ‘echo effect’ is in play for the time being.

if he doesnt off himself, the cops will. it'll be suicide by cop.

the only thing he might be doing is going to look for the wife.

I posted this about an hour ago on a similar thread...

"I can’t help but wonder if this kind of behavior is the result of the unfair treatment men get when marriages break up. If the government is not going to protect a man’s rights, some unstable men will be pushed over the edge and commit these horrible crimes."

Lots of "echos" going on. Almost every other day, it seems, I hear of someone killing themselves and their family due to economic/hardship reasons.

The "ME" generation has become the "F*** YOU" generation IMHO.

I am sick of these murders. I don’t endorse suicide, but people who really hate their lives ought to do that rather than murder innocent people.

I agree, it IS Obama’s fault indirectly. Constantly saying things are going to get worse before they get better, building up the deficit, draining the citizens of tax money, causing markets to slide, people to be out of work, businesses closing. Yeah, he deserves some blame here.

I’ll agree with you that men get unfair treatment, based on personal experience. That in no way excuses the snuffing out of innocent human lives. In this case, an ulimately despicable and selfish act. Children are not posessions.

Since Obama was inaugurated, mass killings are up 400% for his first three months in office. That is indeed Change We Can Believe In.

I’ve believed for awhile that our country has gotten to the point of needing prosperity to keep us civilized — it acts as a societal lubricant after most other civilizing institutions and mores have been degraded. When the prosperity goes away — watch out.

Or

I’m not sure which is more frightening.

The sort of person who gets “pushed over the edge” is the exact person who probably shouldn’t get custody of their kids anyway. Most fathers, regardless of how they are treated by the legal system, don’t kill their kids.

This is what happens to America when they face a future of Islamo-fascism laws and ruler ship and having their country sold out from under them.

They would rather die than be subjugated.

Live free or die hard, sadly some are just taking the easy way out.

Hello trolls from the DUmp, getting your jollies today blaming FReepers?

That’s just a crock. Did you blame Bush indirectly for the Va Tech shootings?

I thought around here we assigned responsibility squarely on the individual who carried the actions out.

Agreed, but the perception of how unfair the system is drives MUCH bad behavior.

“It’s the hopelessness people have after listening to Obama.”

Let’s face it, if this was under President Bush, that is exactly what some journalists, in “serious” venues, would be saying (substituting “Bush” for “Obama” of course).

A "period of escalating violence". So many men under "pyschaitric care"

just waiting to snap when triggered and do their unwitting part in furthering the gun control aka gun confiscation necessary for complete totalitarian government to be realized in America

and worldwide. Global tyranny step by step through synthesis. In the next couple weeks I suppose we shall see more mass shootings and some totalitarian so called gun control legislation.

This Chinese guy (who migrated to Viet Nam before here) managed to kill atleast 13 and shoot maybe 30 people in ten minutes or less.

That's according to the Haitian unemployed cab driver who was their. He went to the shooting range all the time. I wonder if his psychiatrist told him to practice real good before he went on his spree. I wonder if he was trained first in the Chinese military as a sniper or assasin.

Maybe Schumer and Rudy can give him a medal for his gun control movement work. Why did he wear a bulletproof vest if he was going to commit suicide?

This is like watching the media go crazy over the shark killings. Don’t these murders happen all the time, but dont get reported at the national level like this? Something here reeks.....

I'd say there are a few things at work here. First, part of the problem with the statistics of small numbers is that a change of only one or two or three events is suddenly a doubling, or tripling or other massive increase in frequency. These sort of events do tend to be rare-- that's why they're still news-- but "random" doesn't mean that they'll be scattered evenly over time. Quite the opposite, they'll tend to clump up sometimes.

Second, the nationalization of news over the last couple of decades has made everything local. It used to be that when people watched the news for an hour, only a small part of that was national news. The local news would carry murders and this sort of thing, but only rarely would such a story rise to hit the national news. There wasn't bandwidth for it. But now, with 24 hours of programming to fill, it is easy for lots of otherwise "local" stories to become national news. It makes it seem like these things are happening all the time when in fact in any particular area they're of course still very very rare.

Third, all of the above notwithstanding, I was just reading a story (forget the source) this morning that said that sometimes these stories *do* help push the next one over the edge. The VT shooter was said to have been inspired by Columbine, for example. It's not a stretch to think that some borderline nutcase will see one of these stories on their TV and think "Hey, I'm that mad too!" ...and maybe it gets them thinking in a very dark direction.

So... there's my .02

I was just on the phone with my brother talking about this latest shooting and he in essence said the very same thing...with all this upheaval in the economy, rampant fear, anger, etc., there will be more and more of this type of thing happening.

As I have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, I cannot imagine how anyone who does not know Him personally gets through this life without going crazy...

While I agree with you to a large extent, you’re dead wrong when you say kids are not possessions. Mothers with the help of the court system turn then into just that every day.

Fathers have their kids stripped from them, and this is the end of any meaningful parental rights. What impact can he actually have on his child, when his wife has possession 12 out of 14 days? If she doesn’t like his rules for the children, that’s the end of those rules. The father’s input on the child rearing is simply non-existent.

At that rate, teachers have about 50 to 24 odds on fathers, getting far more face time than dads do.

No, I don’t agree with a father killing his kids. In that you are absolutely correct.
