... experts say."

These experts are mentally deranged. Most likely the shooters had prior contact with and prescriptions from such so-called experts.

Rationalization and normalization of murder, disguised as an insightful analysis of mental illness, complete with data from psychiatry.

Destigmatize the murderer. Little by little.

Just because the husband can’t handle the pressures of life, why assume the wife can’t?

I don’t disagree with the contention. Social workers are 14 months into a process that has sent my family and grandkids though hell and there’s still no end in sight. The mother and father still attend their church more than once a week, my wife and I want to foster care the grandkids, but social workers in two states have a quota to meet.

So Jews are really susceptible to Satan's whispers? I thought they were one of the most law abiding groups in the US.

All the Jews I know believe in Jesus Christ, they just don’t believe he is the son of God. And aren’t you being a bit sensitive? Perhaps God would have been better, but you knew what he meant.

Only a sick bastard would ever do this. Ever. I don’t give a crap, a loving father would never even think about murdering his family.
