The kids involved in the Columbine killings where outcastes. They where push over the edge by others. No one would randomly go to school with a gun
and kill people. It could have not been a mental disorder because more than one person was involved. That was a terribly unfortunate event.
But that just proves and pushes the point further that our society is going to hell. When people that are different have to endure pains like that. In
the end of the Columbine shootings no one wins.
Our society has lots of scumbags in it. Child molesters, these people should all be rounded up and thrown in a hole that leads strait down to hell.
Children can't play on the streets like we use to because of them. What can possibly be more disgusting then that?

That is exactly my point, in two ways. The Columbine shooters were not infants programmed to kill and shoot. They were made that way by teachers and
school administrators who are more interested in making sure you haven't violated the dress code by wearing a ball-cap than being the slightest bit
socially aware of whose who are in the cliques at school, harrassing others against a group of teens who have a group of care-free attitudes about the
sanctity of life by an upbringing of non-parental guidance and violent video games. I mean, I can talk to a dude who plays Doom for about an hour
decide if he has a willingness to fire guns at people if he is pushed far enough, if I can socialize with him/her on their level. It is a no brainer
to talk to a teen who has an obsession with guns and violent video games to think that it is not beyond them to carry it out if they are pushed far
Teachers, Administrators, Parents, and youths need to get real about what is actually goin on. Guns are real and any one can use them. It doesn't
take much for a programmed individual to cross the line of their sensibilities to shoot people for fun. A video game is fun, but with it comes
responsibility. Honestly, their parents failed and so did the school for controlling the school environment. When I was in school, I got into
fights, but nothing was ever done about it. The Jocks picked on the unfortunate outcasts and nothing was ever done about it. I guess the Jocks and
cheerleaders are above condemnation because they contribute to extracirricular activity - or so it may seem.
As for child molesters, we should have an absolute solution to them, but not without a federal law of what is okay and what is not. Children, should
not be molested under any circumstance and molesters should be castrated and ordered to take female hormones for life, if they are male. Cut off
their genitalia and reduce their male hormones. If they get a kick out of it, well then prison should be the life for them for a long long time. The
cut off age as you know is usually 16 for consentual sex in most states, if a parent doesn't press for delinquency or something other. Like it or
not, parents cannot have a middle ground here. A 12 year old should not be having consentual or non with anybody, but at some age there begins to
come a time when teens change and they don't know if they are agreeing to something or not. Other countries allow sex at a lower age and even
marriage. The west is not the same.
My personal beliefs is that no one under 18 really has the sense to know the responsibilities of sex earlier than that and that we should draw the
line across the board for all intimate contact below that age, consentual or not.
Anyone engaging in sex before 18 should have consequences, depending on if they are a minor or adult - with severity depending on if they are an adult
or not. Also, any molestor taking advantage of anyone under 18 should be automatically punished. I really don't care about middle ground here. This
nonsense of teens messing around wastes the time on the court system docket and takes away from true child molestors who could be 35 or 40 engaging
with a minor under 16. You hear about people arranging to meet minors in another stae, or pick them up at a hotel over the internet, only to be
busted. Actually, if an adult initiated this and the minor is 16, this is not illegal to meet or even have sex if it is consentual in most states.
Parents seem to have a problem with this and raise heck, but that is because they think their 16 year old is too young to make a decision (righty so)
or other reasons. Set the age for sex at 18, an anything else is illegal. Much simpler and less bothersome. Adults should be castrated and given
hormones and minors with minors should be given at the very least a long probation and supervised birth control - male and female.
Only an idiot parent would think that a minor would be capable of making a good judgment about having sex with someone before they are 18.
This settles the law argument of what we ought to do about child molestors. Like I said, adults engaging with molestation with anyone under 18 should
be told real clear that they will lose their genitalia and be subdued into womanhood for life if they attempt this action. If they just like the
control aspect of it, they should just be discarded into prison. No one better post a crying sob story otherwise that we should do any different or
it is too harsh of a rationale, or I will immediately take a disliking to you! I have kids, and if you think this is harsh, then that is like you are
agreeing that my girls should be felt-up and violated before they have any common sense. Right now, my oldest is 12, so if anyone molested her, I
would certainly make them pay - way before the law gets to them.
