  •  Van Zandt? (8+ / 0-)

    When I turned it on he was suggesting matricide/parricide was an indication of someone being far enough gone to shoot up a room full of kids. I'm not buying that- there is a huge leap from killing a parent to shooting up a school and the numbers bear it out. Sometimes people shouldn't be paid to just move their lips.

    Stay fired up: now is the time to focus on downticket change! #Forward

      "Sometimes people shouldn't be paid to just move their lips."
      Agree, except I would change that to "Often...."

      That guy kept repeating that people like the shooter are frequently people who think they've been wronged by society and think this is a good way of getting back. My husband's take (he's a psychiatrist) is that the shooter was probably schizophrenic but he wouldn't make a public statement like that based on nothing but supposition.
      and BTW, my husband was not implying that being schizophrenic means being violent -- it's actually pretty rare.

      he provides nothing of value when they bring him in to comment, he serves only to occupy time since they have 24 hours of news to fill.
