Tough Questions From Sandy Hook

  • Chataeu Heartiste's Roissy asks a fair one — Older Moms And Divorced Moms Raising Generation Of Psychopaths? "As the child of a divorced, single mom, Adam Lanza had the deck stacked against him."

  • LewRockwell.com's Mike Holmes asks "if you are a deranged young man with 'mother issues' and a disconnect from humanity, where do you go to perpetrate your violent fantasy? How about a large building full of young children and unarmed, defenseless women?" — Observation on School Shooting. "While it isn’t politically incorrect to observe that all of these killers are male, it isn’t polite to observe that a) many young men disrespect women (in general) and b) aside from convents, there are few places in most communities where adult men are not present during working hours other than at elementary schools."

    I should have seen this angle from miles away, and yet I didn't. =S There was another blog post reflecting on the Sandy Hook tragedy that recently went viral; it was written by the mother of a boy who was diagnosed with mental illness. She says that sometimes he becomes so angry that he takes a knife from the kitchen and threatens to kill her. She has had to give her other children an "emergency plan" for when these things happen. Her post does not at all mention her children's father. While I do feel for what she is going through, I think that Roissy could make a case out of her, too.

    Let me try to find the blog post again for you, if you're interested.

    I found it!

    Thinking the Unthinkable

    There are over 3,000 comments on it, but the one which is most interesting is by "Macey". It's the longest one on the first page, so you should be able to find it easily. I confess that the first time I read it, I thought Macey was being unfair--and perhaps even trying to blame the mother for something that wasn't her fault. But now I have to admit that the mother's choices (however justified) were definitely a factor.
