Taking Responsibility For The Mass Murders Of Children
The parents of the 20 children who lost their lives Friday are going through hell most of us can’t imagine. The terror those kids faced and the ones who survived, as well.
This country has changed and we’re to blame for letting it happen. I’m not talking about god or religion. I’m talking about sitting back and doing nothing while we watched the collapse of dignity and respect for others.
Visit any chan site, like 4chan/12chan/etc, NewGrounds, even YouTube.., and you’ll find these people laughing and their sadistic humor growing because they feed off of each other and the mantra of “If people are offended, do more!” Our society knows these kinds of people exist, but we turn away and hope for them to get over it and learn their lesson. I’ll bet more than a few people reading this belong to groups on Facebook or the net that have posted images making fun of child abuse, pedobear, sex with underage girls, gruesome photos of animal deaths, pics making fun of the disabled…. and they don’t think that’s part of the problem. It’s called “desensitizing” and it breeds child killing psychopaths like this.
While we sit on our asses waiting for things to magically turn out for the better, the existing monsters are creating more and more and more. It’s our fault. We have allowed it to fester and grow for the last 50 years, and now we’re shocked it’s as bad as it is. Badness doesn’t stop just because you turn the channel or close the browser. It’s not going to “just go away” or get better if we pray about it. The parents of those dead kids prayed for their safety, too.
HUMANS are committing these crimes, not any god – regardless of his or her name. Humans are doing it and humans are sitting back watching it.No one would have had the inclination to ever do something like this years ago, but it will keep happening and more of these monsters will keep popping up in schools until we get off our collective ass and stop it.
STOP preaching “freedom of speech/expression” every time someone or some organization breaks the law or preaches violence and hate.START preaching about the right to happiness that these monsters are infringing upon.
It’s freedom of speech to make a blog page laughing about killing children. Then it’s freedom of speech to speak out about it and demand it be considered terrorism against the young citizens of this country who are being robbed of their freedoms.What else is it going to take to understand children have rights, too? They have a right to be protected from abuse, from the violence and predatory encouragement on pedophile sites that work within freedom of expression, they have the right to go to school without being scared of adults our laws protect for their free expressions, they have a right to pursue their happiness like the pedophiles who are given “rehab” by pussies who want to coddle the evil out of them.When are we going to fight for our kids and stop supporting the things in our society that cause school shootings?
Right on cue before the little bodies were even removed from their school, the anti-gun and pro-gun activists were fighting for their spotlight.
All the anti-gun people are doing is making excuses for child murderers. Don’t they understand that? I don’t think they really care. It’s just an opening for them to bitch about the guns. 20 children died so they could have another chance to vent. I wonder if they’re sleeping in their beds comfortably knowing they are exploiting dead children for their chance to rant.
Before all of this gun controversy, people used to carry guns, have gun racks on the inside of their trucks, kids used to play cops and robbers with toy guns… and none of this ever happened. It wasn’t even imaginable. What DID happen is a society that gave up caring about dignity and respect for others and started “feeling sorry” for criminals and glorifying them in movies and in video games. Guns don’t stand up and shoot themselves, and an honorable caring person doesn’t use guns against innocent people, especially children. That’s the issue people should be focusing on. Stop attacking inanimate objects and start owning up to the wicked world our apathy has created!
As for the pro-gun crowd, arming the teachers isn’t the answer, either. That would be teaching kids some horrible reality that WE created. Why would anyone want their kids to learn that we won’t stop people from the mentality to come in and kill them, so it’s best to have a bloodbath scenario in which at least we get off a few rounds of our own?
It isn’t the OBJECT. It’s the MENTALITY. And MENTALITY comes from a society that watches the wickedness breed.
We have completely lost control over our world, ourselves, and life. Every excuse we hear after one of these horrific events is that the shooter was depressed, felt they were unloved, unwanted. No one should feel so depressed they would do this kind of thing for attention, but no one should have it in them to do this for that attention. We need a serious look into what is wrong with us from the inside out and start actually fixing it!
Glorifying these shooters by naming them, showing their photos, delving into their lives has also bred more of them. If we take a look at all of the shooters at schools and public events (i.e. Batman movie), they all have one common ground: No one ever listened to them and they never felt like they existed, but
after their attack, their names were on everyone’s lips. Their lives become everyone’s “need to know,” searching the internet for anything to learn about them. Open fire on kids and innocent movie-goers and suddenly everyone knows you exist. More proof we, as a society, are creating these monsters. There is now a petition to stop publishing the information of these killers so they won’t be able to feel it is a way to get their fame.
I admit this article is far less angry than I think it should be. I’ve been raging ever since it happened, though, and I guess I’m just tired. I’m tired of seeing more apathy rear itself while this happens and the families are in mourning. The Westboro Baptist Church is planning to picket the funeral of the children and the school with signs reading “God Sent The Shooter,” painted with blood-stained hand prints of children. Below articles about this are comments defending their freedom of speech. And we wonder why things are getting worse?
It’s hard finishing my decorations for the season knowing the families of 20 children and 8 adults are planning funerals. My mom died of cancer when I was 11 on December 17. We had just been making plans for her to come home from the hospital for Christmas. I am one who can say I know what they’re going through, although not the same circumstances. I don’t care who you are or what you believe in. Please just don’t forget about these people when you celebrate your holy day. Never take those who love you for granted.
