It's not the actual content of the video games that are making the youth crazy. It's the fact that parents let them play them all day until they become obsessed with them. Then they tie up all those crazy adolescent emotions into these games and tech and material possessions. Ever read the stories of kids killing themselves because their parents took away their xbox's? Just for like a day, they jump in the river. Or they freak out enough to kill over a canceled WOW account.
That is what is making kids nowadays nuts.

Say you had a bad day at work, or school, somewhere. Your driving home and someone just jumps out or tries to run past your car and you have slam on the brakes. I have heard people tell me, and I have myself, just say out loud I should just floor it.

Those family photos are rife with angst and agony. The great aunt was apparently in a hospital bed. My feeling is that there was a lot of sadness in that home. Was he trying to end the misery -- not just for himself, but for everyone?

I;m laying odds this kid was on some kind of anti-depressant or another.
Very sad and tragic.

I think it was the parents fault for not maintaining strict control in their home over said firearm. The Kid needs therapy not jail time IMO.
