I understand that the media has a job to do. Hell, I used to be one of those camera wielding crazies trying to get "the shot", in order to put food on the table.
I think its just...I'm really angry. I hate every aspect of this story, more so than any other mass shooting, not even because it was a LOT closer to home...
I hate the deliberate targeting of such young children...I hate the inevitable fall out of gun control that is likely to happen as a result...but I think that, more than anything, I hate that any form of retribution is eliminated. If he was alive, tied down in the woods, and someone handed me a gun, I would absolutely pull that trigger, no doubts in my mind about it at all. I want to kill or make suffer everyone that kid ever cared about. And I can't. So my hate has no where to go. I've been pretty snappy since yesterday.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
