The ghost of Jack Kevorkian for President's Physician: 2016
I heard on the news today that the kid had been in therapy since he was eight years old. Clearly, the parents knew he had a problem and was all over it early in his life. Unfortunately, once he reached legal adulthood, he was in a position to move out of their house (and their sphere of influence), stop taking his medications, stop going to therapy and plan his insane vengeance.
This is NOT the parents' fault. They literally did everything they could, and tried everything legally available to them. Some people are just... broken.
The underlying message from Elliot Rodgers is: Humanity is on your hands ladies. If you do not offer sexual favors to everyone then humanity gets it, just so you know
Dude must have zero game. In my teens and early twenties I was dirt poor and uglier than this kid - and I got more ass than a toilet seat.
If anything, I think it speaks to this entitlement nation. He thought that chicks should spread on demand. Ya ain't that rich, kid.
imagine any of them, at any time, insisting he couldnt own a firearm.
is there even an expedient means to inhibit a person from owning a pistol they've purchased legally, due to suspicion of intent to harm others, or mentally unstable enough to "snap"? id say no, based on the history of such things and add that because of its sensitive history the legal responses are black and white, and reactionary only.
whats more, we know more about the weapon than the medication he's been on historically. the elephant in the room is being ignored in these cases, because the public tends to pick on the"low hanging fruit" and point at the means of delivery, rather than the perpetrator.
