Happens all the time.
Your children and my grands are very savvy about technology. Its second nature to them.
They all paint themselves as the victims, every single one of them, and Iíve met quite a few
The crimes they commit donít change, only the reasons each gives to explain away his/her transgressions change
You NEVER know what's behind a smile and a handshake.
Believe this: There are real monsters among us.
Trauma can cause each individual to react differently. I've witnessed this numerous times whilst working as a paramedic.
Why do we fall?
So we can learn to pick ourselves up.
This is so true. People wonder why I'm so cautious about my fellow man.... it's because back in my cop days I met all too many evil SOBs, some of whom would consider torturing children a fine evening's entertainment. Mostly they looked perfectly normal and acted normal and did not have a flashing neon sign over their head "WARNING- PSYCOPATH!"

"I used to roll the dice; see the fear in my enemies' eyes... listen as the crowd would sing, 'now the old king is dead, Long Live the King.'.."
Horrific experience for that kid. And to go to school the next day. He was probably a walking case of shock. Poor kid.
The hammer is the clue to the motive. If you are really good with a hammer, chances are you haven't been able to find work since 2008. He may have also been contracting which negates any unemployment insurance checks.
That's the kind of thing that sometimes can push someone with no priors to a reign of terror. He decided that he had nothing to lose and everything to gain from living in the prison. With rape and murder to his cred, other inmates would leave him alone.
It's a terribly sad story that happens only rarely, but one time is too many. Not everyone contemplating suicide decides to kill themselves. Many of the mass shootings that occur are done by suicidal people.
I am stunned by this. And pretty horrified by it. Not just the story, but the comments on here. Really going to question the kids? Unless you have been a 9 year old who has watched their family get brutally beaten to death by a hammer then you dont get to judge their actions. What the **** is wrong with you?
