I rarely watch TV but just clicked mine on, for a minute, to see if CNN was on the case yet. Sure enough, on the Anderson Cooper show, they were
discussing it. I watched for a minute to fact check CNN against what we already know here - to try and gauge the media spin direction.
Coopers "expert" chimed in and said a sentence or two which really caught my attention. He compared this to the spat of other spree killings, over
the past 3 years, and then used the terms "mentally defective" and "guns they should not have".
First off - "mentally defective" is doublespeak. MENTAL ILLNESS is a diagnoses, requiring the meeting of specific criteria. Mentally
defective is an Orwellian generalization that can be applied to anyone who thinks outside of a given parameter - sane or not.
Secondly.... guns they shouldn't have?
Anderson Cooper's "expert" is already showing us the spin.
And Benri... I am so very happy that your wife is safe and at home. My thoughts and prayers are with her. My sympathies for having endured such an
unspeakable and horrible event.
