Teen kills five in shopping mall

I wonder if, just if they find a copy of Dawn of the Dead in his DVD collection they'll be a media campaign against the film.

Re: Teen kills five in shopping mall


If you wanted to blame a film, and I think it more likely the case, blame Zodiac. Of course, it's based on a true story that happened between 40 and 20 years ago, so it's hard to blame the filmmakers or the book's author. Blame the killer for the actions of another killer. Sociopaths. I'd like to see them try to sue the prime suspect, who has been dead for a few years now. But still, a nifty concept. Blame OTHER BAD PEOPLE instead of COMIC STRIPS or BEATLES ALBUMS.

Did the words "kill in the mall" appear in the song "A Day In The Life"? I thought I heard it. Note in particular the portion of the song devoted to the artist waking up. He didn't wake up, exactly; he got up. He rushed to work, but then someone spoke. He went into a dream; so the spell was then in effect. He was under the control for the duration. I site also the song "Happiness Is Climbing The Clocktower With A High-Powered Rifle", "I Wanna Hold Your Hand As I Kill The Hell Out Of You" and "Yesterday, I Cleared Out The Mall Before The Police Shot Me".

Any of Kevin Smith's films.

Schools may need to teach civics courses to kids at much younger ages. I'm actually surprised that the school boards haven't been sued for the lack of voting information in the classroom. Of course, they are to eager to remind us to sign up for Selective Service so that we could be drafted in an unpopular war.

I note that the police may yet face reproach for their handling of the mall situation. This, too, is horrific. They did not know what was going on, or how many gunmen might be involved. Terrorism may not have crossed the minds of the officers. Such is the state of affairs. Everyone might be the killer, and afterwards, the police are accused of treating the innocent as criminals. Where's the justice?

Chopping Mall, anyone?

Still, it would've likely ended the event early if the kid had stopped, looked at the ceiling, and shouted "I SEE YOU CHOCOLATE MAN!!"

"I see [sign in to see URL] man!" Haha.

It's interesting, this story and another one that the news has been talking about throughly over here at the moment. It's said that the UK for children and young adult is the worst place to grow up in the western world, just after, you guessed it, the US. Maybe this is why kids walk into mall shooting mormons. Blame is funny thing. And to think that best place for children and young adults to grow up is Holland, the most liberal country in the western world. That is saying something. No wonder Stefan Rops doesn't show up [sign in to see URL]'s all happy doped and pimping his young friends while watch da gore in de day of de dead. emoticon

I don't think politics is the difference. It might be the level of interest or funding that makes all of the difference.

Or maybe the system should ignore parents? Isn't it the parents that are surprised most when their children kill a bunch of people? Isn't it also the parents that don't have time for the kids? Why then should the government care what they think?

Presently, there is a BIG crisis in the US education system. There isn't money to cover the costs of schools. In one year, my county was forced to double the number of schools. It was a problem that had been ignored in the previous years, and there was then no outcry over the lack of leadership. Where would we get the money, asked the local school board? Then it is figured, somewhere in a massive document that we call a budget, that X dollars are allowed for each child's education. Hmmm. The school board fails at all of it's mathematics courses, as it can't manage budget, nor count class sizes, nor tally grade point averages in any meaningful way.

All of the new schools were of a streamlined design that reminded me of prisons. These fumbling institutions are charged to teach children how to think, but should they also teach the children how to live?

Stefan seemed to be such a well-adjusted young man. And he did make a short film with gore.
