14-Year-Old Boy Shoots Own Dad And Grandma


www.allvoices.com

The officer said the 22 rifle gun he used to shoot the family members is his birthday present from the father. It is really a tragic story.

While being asked why he shot his father and the other members, the young man just replied “I don’t know.”

As the neighbors knew the teenage killer was a well-manner kid. He used to be normal like the other kids at his age, and has no psycho record. The ones who spent last weekend with this boy reported that he did not notice anything unusual.

No!

This is not a gun control thread.

What happened to this kid? Watch the video, people knew this kid as an ordinary boy with no weirdness to him at all.

Just a few minutes before the shooting he was fine and dandy, then after he got the weapon he just snapped.

What is with this "Snapping"?

This is a very sad story to say the least
However I think it's an interesting question to ask.. what makes normal people snap?

That's creepy as hell right there.


And you gotta love this:


This family tragedy proves the unstable social status in United States and the big problem of the teenage when they are easily accessible to violence and weapons.


A completely bizarre, random act with nothing more from the killer than an "I don't know" and that's "proof" of a whole host of assumptions.

Three headshots. Maybe he thought it was a game and that everyone he killed would just respawn in the kitchen.

WOW..... Thats just insane.. There is no other way to put it.. Im sure the further the investigators dig they will surely find something to help explain this behavior.. Perhaps he was abused? Physically, mentally, or sexually.. Hard to say. But then again, if someone was abusing him, why would they buy him a gun? Very bizarre story.

Maybe.

This article here:articles.cnn.com...:CRIME

Makes it sound like the boy shot them while they slept.


Police entered the house to find Joe Robert Lankford, the boy's 44-year-old father, shot to death in his bed, Fisher said. They found Virginia Gaston, 83, dead in her bed, apparently from a gunshot wound, he said. Gaston is believed to be the boy's great-aunt, Fisher said.


Sleep walking? Nightmare? Crazy projected mind control from an unmarked van across the street?

You HAVE to consider when this is happening
Around all of this gun control brouhaha

It's hard to believe it's just a coincidence.

Hypnotism?

I have to agree with you on that one. I also find it creepy that his only response is, "I don't know." I again have to wonder if someone or something is "waking up" some kind of sleepers. Many unusual cases lately of kids just "snapping".

I would hope a 14 year old would know the difference, If not, then he had issues. Once a psycho always a psycho. I'm sure it was the gun's fault.

It doesn't say anything about his experience with guns. You don't just give a gun to a teenager, you first take them out and let them kill something. It isn't as fun as they imagine, and even for an experienced hunter it is quite sad and humbling.

Maybe he did just think it was a game, or maybe he just didn't realize what he was doing.

The last story like this where a kid got a gun for his birthday and then killed his father and his father's friend had all the makings of sexual abuse. The father messed up and armed the kid that he had been abusing with his friend!

Maybe this story has more to it, or maybe the kid was just entirely naive about guns, or...........very distant possiblity that there is something to all this mind control stuff.

It's like someone helping his or her parents cook, and they say grab and knife, and they just start stabbing them. Police come ask why "I don't know" Remember some of the best kids, well mannered who seem like they have no problems, just might be holding it all in, and when a opportunity shows itself they take action.

This doesn't add up. This kid needs to be hypnotized and analyzed by a non-governmental professional psychoanalyst. The main questions, to me, are obviously why? And "did you realize you were actually ending their lives"?
I would want to know what they consider "normal" as well. How did this kid spend his time?

The MK Ultra crowd will be here any second.

The thing about such conspiracies that involve people, such as some black program, gives humans a sense of control. That humanity is in control.

No one likes to entertain the idea, that at times we lose control and it has nothing to do with humanity.

People would rather believe in psychoconspiratorial projects ran by humans than ponder a paranormal or parapsychological origin for such phenomena.

I had mentioned before in another thread the amazing accuracy of these shooters possibly having a parapsychological origin... no one replied.

If there is a non human element involved, I think it greatly disturbs people. Secret societies and other such conspiracies, offer a sense of hope. The bad guys are human and we can fight back.

On the other hand, nonhuman phenomena is somewhat hopeless. We can't understand or relate to it. We can't fight it. It is unknown, alien and awefully horrifying.

this is very confusing...maybe a failure in the manchurian candidate programming?

or maybe he did what he was programmed for? to take away weapons from people?

how can he say " i dont know" ?

somethings fishy here

ye sounds funny but...this is just wrong

Agreed some teenagers don't know between fiction or reality in most video games.
It will indeed be blamed on the video games yet again

The first thing that comes to mind is copy cat crime. Jared L. has gotten a lot of attention in the news for the last week. This kid may be thinking he'll be the next topic of conversation. Teenagers don't always have a good grasp on life.

On a totally different tangent, I just finished reading a thread on animal die-offs. I speculated there that when its human's turn there will be a lot dieing at once too. Maybe instead of dieing we will just go crazy, en masse. Jared and this kid are just the leading edge.

It reminds me of Brenda Ann Spencer. After she opened fire on the school across the street she said " I don't like Mondays".

Better Source

Apparently he called 911 himself and told the officers that he would put the gun on the kitchen table. He was described as "calm, cool, and methodical."

He received the gun back in September, so it wasn't just a reaction to putting a gun in his hand.
