I got a Viber text from daughter in England. She was shaken as she drove a school bus for kids this age here in the states.
She said that kids behavior and outlook on being entitled to everything seems to be worse than when she was in school and while shocked wasn't surprised. They behaved on the bus like she and her friends wouldn't even think to.
I don't think it's guns per se. I wouldn't mind seeing some stricter regulation, but it's mostly the people to whom the guns are available. These were legal, and there is no way to really identify a potential killer. I'd be more inclined to blame the violence on the movie screen and video games. Everyone seems to be inured to the violence.
It's also the mindset that everyone is entitled to what they want with no caveat that they have to work for it.
If a kid is a bully, either the school turns a blind eye or tries counseling which the bully just laughs at. There should be swift punishment for a bully or any other behavior that would endanger another. Forced detention, supervised service - like clean up the playground litter, and make the parents accountable for the kid's behavior.
Adults think motor laws and texting while driving don't apply to them. What does this tell the kids? Making an unkind remark to another person - what does this tell the kid?
Adults sail close to the wind to avoid paying a true price for a service or item -- what does this tell a kid?
If this idiot took revenge because his mother told him he had to move out, I wouldn't be surprised.
