In all fairness to abc, they were pretty busy at that time trying to come up with some way to connect her little Jimmy to the TEA Party, conservatives, Americans, Limbaugh and Palin.

I was awakened by a call from a reporter by ABC on July 20 about 5:45 in the morning.

That's a perfectly civilized thing to do.

Imagining the phone call to her the dual interpretation possibility of “you have the right person” fragment ate at me too as every outlet who picked it up was running with only one. The silver lining here is that the incompetence and malice of ABC is on full display. Hopefully it’s instructive to the uninitiated and they are legion, believe or not. Sometimes we forget that.

Not trying to defend the creep but I believe he killed 12 not 13.

And do you really want to attack his mother? Should the world hold your mother responsible for all you do? Should you be held responsible for the acts of your child(ren)?

Your post was highly inappropriate. We're all pissed at the cowardly punk who murdered and victimized so many. But until and unless his mother defends her son's cowardly acts she deserves our sympathy not scorn.

Almost ten. The poster was correct. That's because of the speed of the New York minute.

On the other hand there may be a Noo Yawk, Nova Scotia...

Nova Scotia is in the Atlantic timezone in which case it would be 10 Noo Yawk time...

But I do give credence to the Noo Yawk Minute concept.

I’m sick and tired of humanity and compassion for parents that loose their progeny on society to murder over a dozen innocents! As a parent I believe others bear responsibility for what their offspring do!

The millions upon millions of dollars, over the cost of lives, should be heaped upon the heads of these clueless parent figures!

STFU? That’s the rallying cry of an America that buries their heads in the sand! Look what that’s got us!

Suck it up, Gator!

In the early 50’s I actually drank out of one of those tin cups in a battlefield situation.

Did you?

Ironic that "New York Minute" is a song by Don Henley that talks about being gunned down. In a New York minute, everything can change. (And NY, incidentally, has really tight gun control laws with high crime rates to match.)

Well said. We know nothing about the mother yet. She might be utterly blameless in the way her son turned out.

Some children are just born evil. I'm sorry to say that, but I believe it to be the true. And such a belief is not contrary to a Judeo-Christian worldview: We are, after all, born with original sin; and though most of us never commit such a great evil, we are all capable of doing evil.

Thank God all my children grew up without ever displaying any kind of criminal behavior. But I do tell myself "there but for the grace of God go I..."

Shocking... shocking I tell you. It says a lot that in these times it’s easier to believe the mother of a mass murderer rather than what is supposed to be reputable news gathering organization.

This is the kind of nonsense that will tip the scales towards Obama in November... how does any conservative candidate have a chance when the media is so bent these days...

Gator, calling me a ‘nasty’ name doesn’t get you any kudos. It takes a real slime to slime someone else on this website for expressing their feelings abour parenthood!

I’m not surprised you were never in combat as it’s more comfortable for you to hide behind an alias!

Maybe not ... but the "report" was made in the very same "news" cast as Brian Ross's slander of the Tea Party member.

Btw, I called BS the very first time I heard this "report" about what the mother said.

It was obvious to me this was yet another piece of myth-making on the part of the MSM.
