She also outlined some of the difficulties Jacob Roberts faced, explained how she took him in after her younger sister died and tearfully expressed her love for him.
Jacob's mother . died in 1993 of Hodgkin's disease. She was 22 and Jacob was 2. He never knew his father. Tami Roberts took him in. She and her husband considered him their son and became his legal guardians. But the couple divorced and Jacob Roberts lived with one and then the other.
Clackamas County court records show that, after Jacob Roberts inherited $18,000 from his grandmother in 2004, Tami Roberts soon spent all of it. She admitted violating her fiduciary responsibility . .

curios to know how many of these mass shooters come from broken homes.. If their is discussion about guns their has to be a discussion of breakdown of family...
If their is discussion about guns their has to be a discussion of breakdown of family...
Teaching morality and responsibility is the only solution and that can be done in a single parent family or a dual parent family...man and wife....not man and man or wife and wife since they have no idea of morality or responsibility.
I think the odds of you becoming a mass murderer if you are the unabused child of a loving mother and father are about ‘nil.’
But I guess there aren’t any federal dollars available to fund such a study.
Oh the victim! spare me you mentally deficient liberal son of a bitches.
Having a hard time feeling sorry for him. My sorrow was all used for the families of the innocent people he murdered.
You are right. The two kids who started all this school shooting business in Colorado in the ‘Nineties were white middle-class kids from a two-parent family.
There has never been much investigation of their home life etc. as far as I know.
Jacob Roberts was wearing a Guy Fawkes mask. One of the guys who started trashing the tent in Lansing was wearing a Guy Fawkes mask. The Sandy Hook shooter was wearing a mask (still waiting to find out if it was a Guy Fawkes mask)
The writer is a lefty, so be aware.
It appears there might be a connection between friends of Lanza and Occupy Wall Street, so I would not be surprised if he was wearing the OWS Guy Fawkes mask.
Step mom’s profession she listed as “professional stoner”.
We know his facebook page was about drinking and partying.
So that’s the “culture” that he came from, the “party” culture of Portland’s east side.
Clint Tarver said one of the guys who started overturning tables on the AFP tent was wearing a devil mask but Breitbart reported that he was shown a picture of a Guy Fawkes mask and he said that was it.
If I remember correctly they were both taking some kind of brain medication (Ritalin, or some similar drugs). Having an atheistic worldview (remember they targeted some Christian students) was probably a bigger factor, but I believe a lot of these mass shootings have a common thread of the instigators having had their brains mucked around with various psychotropic drugs.
“... these mass shootings have a common thread of the instigators having had their brains mucked around with various psychotropic drugs.”
You got that right, Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) like Prozac and the like can really mess up your mind. They’re great for those that really need them but they are dangerous as hell for those that don’t. The risk of suicide goes way up with these and almost every mass shooting in the past 30 years the shooter was on these type of drugs.
Yep. Most of the mass murderers were from affluent (government-derived incomes), admired, divorcing families. Fatherlessness. The divorce/cohabitation and political/regulator debt regimes are combining for interesting times. And the socialist class that the murderers sprung from are reacting by pushing for violations of the rights of others.
***...were white middle-class kids from a two-parent family.***
As was Kip Kinkle, Not poor,nice area, nice house, nice family life, till he murdered his parents, shot up a school and was captured by the police while yelling at them,..”KILL ME! KILL ME!
Scene from TOMBSTONE:
Wyatt: What makes a man like Ringo do what he does?
Doc: He has a big hole through his middle and he can not kill enough or steal enough to fill it.
Wyatt: What does he want?
Doc: Revenge for being born.
