I called the kid a kid because he was under the age of 18.
Yes, that's a disservice to teenagers everywhere, but the fact remains that 17 is still under the age of majority.

I will say that it's nice to see people calling this a societal problem, and not merely trying to brush it away by dismissing it as mental illness.

Not that how we treat mental illness isn't also a societal problem, but I think that's a horse of an entirely different color while still being a horse.

So when do we start doing something about this societal problem?
Because this kid in MD thought he had the right to walk into a school and blow away a girl, for reasons that have not yet been released.

And in Texas we have a 20 year old man mailing bombs.
So, when are we going to address the factors that radicalized then young men?

I think the internet is as much to blame as video games, which is to say not at all.
These young men / boys were angry enough to murder, why?
And why did they believe their anger was enough of a justification to take someone else's life?
