Agree. It’s past time we all cut each other a generous length of slack.
There's also a series of cult books about a fictional 19th century adventurer named Flashman, so my first thought was it was a prank.
yikes, they do not have the same liability immunity.
if the drug IS the cause or even contributed, then you have CRIMINAL liability for the suits.
Doesn't matter if a parent is paying for their kid's college, he doesn't have the right to manage the account. A library won't tell a parent what library book the kid has on reserve so they can't pick it up for them on the way home from work. We can thank the libs for all this. It's the libs who have the blood of those little children on their hands.
Which is probably why he had his older brother's ID on him.
Ok maybe so maybe not. The only ones I see disputing/speculating are the DU fellows. Even Snopes who I have my doubts about sometimes haven’t chimed in yet.Some reports have been apparently “disappeared” without a vociferous and prominent retraction/denial given the high profile nature of this incident
I believe this could be it.
Does anyone remember the movie “A Beautiful Mind”? I lived with a man with a severe psychosis - that movie kept bringing moments to me that I lived through. It’s the telephone scene that brings back the real memories - anyone who knows someone will is mentally ill knows the trauma that occurs when the loved one finally says, that’s it - and gets on the phone to call the ambulance or police or whatever. They can go berserk.
Even if the ill person has good experiences at the hospital (and they often do) if they are really in a psychotic break they can go wild and get very, very violent and irrational when you lift that telephone. Seems mom was at a “telephone” moment, figuratively.
I make a big deal because he’s verbally abusive to my parents..they’re scared of him & walk on eggshells around him in their own house.
I pray it never escalates but my parents are not getting any younger & hate to see a man child ruining what should be happy years.
My Mom is a nervous wreck & my Dad is in denial about him & is becoming more sad/withdrawn.
I just feel bad for my parents...
Blessings on you and your folks.
Given enough time and knowing his mother, he could have figured out the combination or found where she had hidden the combination. He would know numbers she'd use like birthdays and anniversaries. Being the genius he was an a computer geek, it would be easy enough to set up a camera pointed at the safe. It could be he was refusing to take his meds.
Looking for a room as I was going to nursing school( my second degree back a long time ago). We( was with a friend) go to this home and it's dark, shaded weird windows) some broken, and smells of urine) and hear a television turned up and all way.It was the fuzzy sound when the TV is not on a channel but she insists the TV is on the right channel when my friend attempts to touch the TV.
She had six kids and was scared thinking we were"the fuzz or the social workers." Thus the reason it took her five minutes to answer the door.( Oh I looked in the home, and I won't go into detail of the ,"home," It was spooky weird)
It's dark inside, all windows are blacked out because she's telling us there's demons. I didn't notice at first but my friend has me back away from her. She's( the lady) slamming something into the couch over and over again.
My eyes adjust to the darkness and we both realize she's stabbing the couch over and over with a kitchen knife, a big kitchen knife
We skeedaddle but not before I call the social workers. After all she has six kids right? So I get phone calls from her for over a week threatening my life as she knows I'm the one who called the social workers. I record the messages of course and give them to the social workers but for some odd reason they can do nothing. See, she's a black woman with six kids, HUD housing and just needs her anti psychotic meds and I'm just over reacting( pretty much told me I was racist in so many words).
About three weeks later she was being evicted from the apartments because she held the manager at knife point because he called the cops on her as she was threatening the neighbors with the knife in front of her six kids.
The social workers found her a better home with three bedrooms for her kids and all charges dropped. I had asked why, and again I was over reacting; "the woman just needed her medications and a better home to raise her kids right.
Yes, still shaking my head but this happened, and this lame excuse for this Lanza episode is probably the truth. Sad thing is this probably happens more often but of course 26 children and elementary school teachers aren't murdered, just one at a time. I have no idea of stats, probably buried in reports somewhere. Best place to be in America is broke, on welfare with a dozen kids, a minority and a knife in your hand while not taking the meds so the demons can talk to them easier without that"fuzzy" TV interference.
You act like he was an outsider who was never inside the house so knew nothing that was going on in it. Sure, kids never sneak around their parents' room. Sure, being a computer geek, he'd never snoop on her computer or listen in on phone calls or take a peek at the mail. Maybe he had access to her car because he'd blown her face off so couldn't tell him he couldn't borrow the keys. Maybe he had access to her weapons because he'd planned this for a while and began the his morning while she was still asleep in bed.

My thoughts exactly.
It’s easy to gain access to a safe if you live in the same house and it gets opened regularly.
A tiny camera or fingerprint dust could easily be used to find the code.
Or, if the safe doesn’t have a lockout feature someone could simply try every combination for several days while the mom isn’t home.
Wow. Just wow.
The system is so screwed up. Almost beyond repair.
