Frankly, I agree. The crimes will get more horrible, and the people will get more desensatized to it. This viscious cycle can only be stopped by responsable parenting, and comunity involvement. Something that seems to be lacking in today's american society, and especially in schools. rant rant rant country going to hell rant rant cant walk down the streets without stepping on crack vials rant rant rant jon katz rant rant...

Re: Oklahoma bloodlust
8 years ago, would you know how to spell McVeigh? Now even 8 year olds can spell his name correctly. We all grew up early knowing that Jeese had two e's - although who were the other James brothers?

Hmmm i wonder what *responsible* adult put that idea in his head. For gods sake kids this age do NOT have the understanding of issues this complex, leave them out of it for fucks sake. This makes me sick.

even more, the sentiment is much more brutal than reality. OK doesn't electrocute people; mcv won't "fry" when he's kilt, he will painlessly perish.

Kids these days have such a warped sense of life and death, it's frightening. I'm convinced that the only reason I turned out as safely lucid and cynical as I did is because I was raised with dysfunctionality from birth.
One of the key things I learned ever since I was 4 was to cope. Broken promises, seeing the other "normal" kids with the hottest toys all over TV and brand-new clothes, watching intact families having a good time, it all forced me to acknowledge reality, to acknowledge that my life will never be like theirs, and to deal with it.

There are as many ways to ruin a kid as there are kids. Everything from permissive, to overly strict, to a complete lack of parenting can wreck the little ones, yet some of the best adults and some of the most interesting high school students, I've known are survivors of incompetent parents. Some kids suffer from parents who never read a parenting tome and others suffer from parents who keep their heads so stuck in the latest and greatest they never see what a little monster they're creating. I know a College prof and an MD who married late in life to start his second family, they actually thought it would be a good idea to raise a child without using the word no. The results were predictable.

Chewbuccas, cartoons don't screw up kids coz they odn't take it seriously, they can differiante between a CARTOON and real life, there no blood in cartoons. Movies on the other hand.... I don't beleive movies/games cause kid killers, i believe genetic disposition, bad parents, and too much of that cause kid killers. Why (i know this is very personal but..) was your childhood so screwed up? I mean shit, my parents split when i was 7, messy too, i've changed coutnries 4 times, house innumerable times, and lived off next to nothing at time, i don't consider myself 'screwed up'. Friend of mine have suffered far worse, including rape, incest, and suecide, they arne't either. i know i don't know your story but i will offer this advise.

Jag, how obtuse and callous can you be? By your saying to me all that stuff about a cross, you're saying that I implied I have the worst childhood. I never said I did. You have had a rough go of it, I admit. I've gone through shit of my own, stuff you're damn right is personal, but I don't go into it. I said what I said to make a point. You're dangerously close to trying to start some sort of "Pity Me" contest.

Actually, frank was the only brother...the rest of the men in the James gang were unrelated (for a while it was known as the James-Younger gang, for Frank, Jesse, and Cole Younger, among others)
