“When the Isla Vista police questioned Eliot Roger, their results were that he was "polite," that he was soft-spoken and calm. POLITE IS NOT AN INDICATOR OF MENTAL HEALTH.
THE SYSTEM FAILED: MOST SOCIOPATHS KNOW HOW TO BE POLITE; JUST BECAUSE THE POLICE DIDN'T OBSERVE AN ANGRY, HOSTILE AND COMBATIVE PERSON DID NOT MEAN THINGS WERE OK. How many police have left the house of a violent abuser after having been "sweet-talked" only to find the victim dead?
THE SYSTEM FAILED: Nice doesn't mean anything; anyone can feign nice. Anyone can fake mental well-being; it doesn't mean much. What is significant is Roger's obsessive playing of violent video games...that much violence on a near-constant basis has to change brain chemistry and Eliot had a hx of paranoia. Paranoia is a red flag. He heard voices. Those voices to someone with schizophrenia are very, very real. It's not uncommon for those voices to dictate violent actions.
THE SYSTEM FAILED: Roger was in the mental health system, identified paranoid schizophrenic=red flag. Bells, lights and whistles should have gone off as soon as he attempted to purchase a firearm, when he entered the website. Instead, he was able to purchase not one, not two, but THREE hand guns from THREE different websites/gun stores?
THE SYSTEM FAILED: Contrary to the NRA'S multitude of lies, we don't have background checks...when are we as citizens going to stop allowing the NRA to lie, cheat and steal and bully us into compliance with their greedy violent intentions?”

“There are no definitive signs that someone will become a shooter. Recent shooters have some commonly shared characteristics. They commonly are angry loners. So are a lot of other people.
In most states, the police cannot take someone in to custody solely because someone else thinks they are crazy.
This guy had a long history of unusual behavior , he had seen a counselor on various occasions and his parents were very worried about him. As a mother, I thinks that is a plenty good enough reason to lock the kid up until doomsday, but that is not the law. In my state, he would have to present an immediate danger to himself or others. If he was polite, coherent, and appropriate when the police talked with him, they'd have to let him go. So would a hospital.”

“Unfortunately, most police officers are not trained in how to recognize or react to mentally disturbed people. They clearly didn't recognize the difference between someone rational and someone mentally ill acting rational.”

“I am at a loss as to why we aren't hearing more about the devastating consequences of the Citizens'
United ruling...there is a movement to reverse Citizens' United, the ruling that gave full voting power to corporations as well as eliminating the limits of campaign spending and furthermore, disguising the origin of the billions of dollars spent on the last election--that Movement, to amend the Constitution to ensure that we the people have the power guaranteed by the Constitution--The We The People Amendment. I am more at a loss to understand how anyone--except the very, very wealthiest--would want their country run by corporations, the Koch Brothers, the American Legislative Exchange Council (A.L.E.C.) and lobbyists. Go to MovetoAmend.org, sign the petition and do something that can benefit ALL of us.”

“"...at a loss to understand how anyone--except the very, very wealthiest--would want their country run by corporations..."

It's simple.

Government is run by people who are a mix of ideologies funded and beholden to various special interests, some of their own choosing, others who choose them. A roomful of politicians is a hot mess, almost impossible for one to determine what they'll end up doing. They're unpredictable, and although they say they're on "our side", they rarely are.

OTOH, Business is driven by profit. This singular devotion makes them very predictable --- an individual, given a scenario, can pretty much determine what sort of decisions they will make. They are NOT on "our side", but if they're successful, we tend to be as well.

People like the predictable.”

“The catholic church is an extremely corrupt organization and has been for centuries. Consider: The Inquisition, The Crusades--ethnic cleansing. They've changed nothing but their words. When is law enforcement going to hold the corrupt bishops, cardinals and the former pope accountable and prosecute them for the criminals that they are? Nothing, absolutely nothing will change until the criminal element of the clergy is charged with obstruction of justice, conspiracy and child endangerment. To my knowledge, there is only one bishop who has been prosecuted--Flynn. Ultimately, it is the bishops and cardinals who are most responsible for these crimes against humanity--our most vulnerable population--our children.
Pedophiles/ephebophiles are very sick people obsessively driven by the compulsion to rape children. Their recidivism rate is extremely high--the vast majority does NOT respond to treatment. The church has been aware of this for years, yet has continued to recycle these child rapists to other situations where they rape other vulnerable children from troubled, chaotic homes, those who are bullied and marginalized, those for whom life is already difficult for they are the easiest to manipulate. The victims of these rapists--and their superiors--will go on to live lives punctuated by nightmares and flashbacks, insomnia and intrusive thoughts, inability to concentrate, melt-downs and strong emotions. Their relationships and jobs will be negatively impacted. Abuse permeates every aspect of one's life and the road to recovery is rocky and steep. Some never recover and turn to addictions and suicide.”
