As noted a significant number of students were unable to break out fact from opinion, make a clear written argument or "objectively review conflicting reports of a situation or event", the study found. In fact those students who fell into this category had a tendency to be swayed by emotion and political spin.

You do not think I was saying that do you?
I was being sarcastic and then gave the definition of the thing. Just clarifying, you are not misunderstanding my post?

Three headshots. Maybe he thought it was a game and that everyone he killed would just respawn in the kitchen.
he was not able ... to articulate a reason for his behavior
in a calm, controlled, methodical voice that he would be waiting or come outside when police arrived, and he had laid the gun on the dining room table

I blame the 1st Amendment, the 2nd Amendment, video games, Adult Swim and freedom in general.

If what you are saying is true then theoretically one of the seven children in my family should have been a psychopath When we got a woopin' it was a controlled punishment never given at the time of the event. Our parents had to have time to reflect and discuss the event warranting punishment between themselves first, and then with us. There were a set number of "whacks" that we'd much rather have had than the "talk"! Cool heads prevailed!
We were not abused, we were not molested and even though both of my parents are gone I thank them to this day for my upbringing. My siblings all feel the same way.
Gee, back when teachers were allowed to smack you with rulers I wonder why all those farm kids with access to guns didn't take one to school and blow the teacher away?
