    WOW! Less than a week after the last random death by teens. This man who was in the Pacific during WWII, was beaten by teenagers because, again they had nothing better to do! What the F****….

    Not to mention the local teenaged thrill-killers here in Columbus a few weeks ago.

    The answer to WTF is right there in your post — “again, they had nothing better to do”.

    People think I work with teenagers for altruistic reasons –I don’t. Guidance from caring adults is the only difference between a future filled with happy productive citizens and a future filled with feral, amoral thrill killers. I’ve been saying that for years.

    Kids who are getting laid a lot don’t do this kind of stuff.

    Hmmmmm… so who will socities leaders, politicians, and media blame for these actions?

    Can’t blame the guns here.

    Video games maybe? That seems to be an easy target.

    Heaven forbid they actually admit to wrong doing themselves that helped lead to this. Either through the ultra violent media itself, or through our politicians/leaders essentially rewarding people with $$$ for the breakdown of the family fabric. Naw. Not their faults. Has to be video games, racism, Bush, Obama, or the Tea Party.

    Yeah, those getting laid kids just have babies when they’re to young to raise and parent them properly. Those children eventually turn into bored teens just looking for something fun to do.

    I can’t imagine being so bored I need to go out and kill the first person I see.. I think we should stop accepting boredom/nothing better to do as an actual reasoning for murder. There must be some reason why they did it. If not, they are sociopaths who would kill whether they were given a chance at after-school activities or not.

    So if they had used guns instead of fists do you think people would be blaming guns?

    Yes.

    They are in the Okie case.

    Maybe not to the extent they are here

    Duh.

    Sure some anti gunners would look at a larger issue at the root cause, but not for the most part.

    the only people talking about guns in this thread are mostly pro-gun people.

    Attackers were black.
    Victim was white.

    Gee. I wonder.

    Nah, can’t be that.

    Belton’s daughter-in-law tells KREM-TV that the suspects beat him with flashlights.

    “They used those great big heavy flashlights,” Bobbie Belton said. “The doctors said he was bleeding from all parts of his face.”

    Must be the flashlights that caused this one.

    You wondered yesterday how the thread on the Oklahoma killing got off on a tangent about Martin/Zimmerman? It’s taking an isolated case and extrapolating into a larger argument, whether it fits the facts or not. Like here.
