    He and I disagree regularly on the subject of progressive tax (I support it as a necessary evil), raising taxes on the rich (I'm for it, because we need to increase revenue and the rich are the only ones who can afford to pay the increase), and the social safety net (I'm for a cheaper but more efficient social safety net that is more focused on hand-up than hand-out).

    If, however, the only topics you debate me on are gun control I can see where you'd assume, wrongly, that I am conservative.

    Well, we've been wondering what triggered this.... looks like we know, now.


    I'd still be curious if there's a professional diagnosis on what kind of mental health problems this young man had, exactly. Lotta people questioning whether it was Aspergers.
    That's an interesting idea. The notion of being committed might have been a triggering event, but I'm guessing there's a lot more to it.

    Going to that particular school, targeting not just teachers but children who pose no threat to him at all.

    They've talked about him having a condition where he didn't feel physical or emotional pain, which meant he had to be watched at all times. That could also mean that part of the brain that enables us to feel empathy towards others was damaged as well.

    “From what I've been told, Adam was aware of her petitioning the court for conservatorship and (her) plans to have him committed," Flashman told FoxNews.com. "Adam was apparently very upset about this. He thought she just wanted to send him away. From what I understand, he was really, really angry. I think this could have been it, what set him off.”

    He got that angry part right. That kid wanted to kill the world. His mother probably discussed him constantly with her girl friends. That would have just been the straw that broke the camel's back. Why didn't they just let that kid go with his father and brother instead of banishing him to a world ruled by women. The commitment to the laughing academy would have been the final rejection. An interesting question is why didn't he just kill himself instead of taking all the innocent kids with him. Maybe he was so far down, he saw rejection coming from everywhere and everyone and just wanted to pay them all back.

    I think this needs something more than the unreliability and misinformation propagated by faux news. They have the reputation of a rupert murdoch media station. That is the lowest standard in media there is and hopefully ever will be.

    At any rate this still leaves questions. If it was a freak out, why destroy the hard drive? According to everything i have read that computer was adam's world. That was where he gamed, and what he did most of his days when he wasn't shooting his mom's guns. Adam also had communication problems, he wasn't a retard. If he did not want to get committed then why go on a kill crazy rampage pretty much ensuring he would be committed if he was caught? One can say he snapped and then realized it, but why go after the kids if that was the case. He kills his mom, realizes he is screwed and then offs himself. it does not explain gathering up all the clips and heading down for a shooting spree in the school.

    This is also faux who has been reporting that this kid prepped for this attack because he had so many bullets, while at the same time telling us his mother was a prepper for doomsday. He did not have to load the clips, they would have already been loaded with the gun. Even they cannot get the very basics of their own story right, how the hell can i expect them to come to some psychological deduction based upon a hard drive they have never seen and even the FBI cannot retreive data on, a house they have never entered, a person they never knew and cannot find any actual people who knew him because the only person who did know him was the first person killed, no diaries, no manifesto or note, and the crappy reporting done so far on this whole incident by everyone. Faux had a better idea of who would win the last election, and we know how well they did there.

    The only thing i know is gun control absolutely screwed up by letting crazy woman and psycho boy have access to guns. There are a lot of people with guns that are level headed sane people. It is clear in every way she was a ****ed up loonie (and probably a drunkard) and he should have had a cork on the end of any sharp objects around him. There is no way these people should have been permitted to have a nerf gun let alone an assault rifle and some handguns. I don't even care if it is doomsday i still would not let her and the kid near a gun out of fear of being shot in the back. granted, if it was doomsday i probably would have just done some cleaning on the gene pool and saved the resources for some people who were not mentally defective.

    There is a reason why the father and other son got the hell out and away from that woman and the kid. Like most rich people they are trying to maintain the image of their family and probably are covering up some information that could shed light on this. Her own brother had not seen her in years. There is something really screwed up behind the scenes of all of this that we may never know.

    Does anyone know if there is any hard facts regarding this person and whether he was or was not MI or DD?

    It makes wonder about the mental stability of the mother.
    His mother was an ender, and had stockpiled food and ammunition for the coming apocalypse. It is no wonder her son was also mentally disturbed.
