I know that this was a horrible event and that it will take a few days for the whole story to come out, so I’m not going to make light. However, the cynic in me is going to ask two questions:
1) Who are they going to try and blame for this one? A random heavy metal band or a computer game?
2) How quickly before the parents involved try to sue someone?
As I’ve said on other pages, and other blogs, I’ve liked pretty much every American I’ve met. But their society is a festering heap of shit. They refuse to recognise that their gun culture is to blame for so many incidents like this, and their kneejerk reaction to the loss of a loved one is to wonder how much money they can make from it, and how to shift the responsibility to a major corporation than admit they were fucking awful parents or that – simply – “shit happens, some people are born mentalists”.
Bush can sit there and issue press statements about being “shocked and saddened” but he’s the twunt who kept semi-automatic weapons on the streets by refusing to carry forward an edict left behind by the Clinton administration so he’s partly to blame.
I could rant on more, but I’d likely be repeating myself from other blog posts. Want me to shut up? Then make sure this shit doesn’t happen again. 33 innocents dead is surely enough of a price to pay for someone to start thinking about changing things?
