Well thats because of the limits of my Wordsmithing ability..............................my point - many of the people killing the children who live in the USA are raised by people who empower them either through ignorance - apathy or purposefully....................................

 

Any Culture that supports the right of it's government to rip another Parents child from them and then imprison both in seperate cages thousands of miles apart is doomed regardless of the words used to describe it or the excuses made to justify it

 

You appear to be taking issue with the Title of a Thread and you also appear to be offended if the Author might be taking liberties including your own children in the mix....................but then one would have to ask - how do you feel about your Government current actions towards the Children of others........................and you might also be cautioned to think about the fact that if your Government can act so visciously and cavelierly with the Children of others - what happens when they narrow their focus and it becomes possibly directed at you & yours for whatever perceived injustice you are thought to have committed................................

 

Trumps Buddy Duterte in the Phillipines thinks personally driving around on a Motorcycle and shooting those he preceives to be drug user and pushers is within his power and Trump applauds

this practice

 

Remember please Trump already beleives his Cult would allow him to shoot a unarmed innocent person of Fifth Avenue in NYC and still vote for him - we aren;t that far away from becoming a Country just like the Phillipines

This is What is Raising Our Children

The mother of suspected Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz repeatedly interfered with efforts to help her son get mental health treatment and allowed him to buy guns, despite warnings from counselors, investigators said Tuesday.

 

During a lengthy meeting about the 19-year-old's involvement in behavioral programs, the chair of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission said that Lynda Cruz enabled her son's concerning and volatile behavior and pushed back on concerns that he should not own a firearm.

 

"There are a whole, whole lot of people who tried very hard to have an impact on Cruz and to change him and his behavior," Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, who heads the commission, told members Tuesday afternoon. "It wasn't being effective and some of it was because of his mother."

Cruz was charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder and 17 counts of attempted murder after he confessed to gunning down his former classmates and teachers in Parkland, Florida.

 

Before she died of pneumonia last November, Lynda Cruz interfered with ongoing efforts to help her son, who has a range of mental health and behavioral issues, Gualtieri said.

 

"His mother was an enabler," he said. "His mother contributed to this significantly to the point that at one time he said he wanted a gun and counselors at schools said he shouldn't have a gun and his mother said if he wants a gun he can have a gun."

 

About a year before the shooting, Cruz, then 18, was living with his mother and brother when he legally purchased an AR-15 rifle, which authorities say he used to kill students and teachers on Valentine's Day. He also had purchased other weapons and ammunition before and after she died, records show, despite countless 911 calls from his mother about her son's violent behavior and dozens of visits from the Henderson Behavioral Health clinic.

 

According to Gualtieri, Henderson counselors had at least 140 contacts with the shooter, often spending "two-plus hours" at a time at his home "multiple times a week."

 

"There were school counselors spending hours with him," the sheriff went on. "There was a whole bunch of effort being made but it just didn't get it there."

 

Cruz had been exhibiting a pattern of concerning behaviors that had been escalating since he was young, causing him to act out at home and at school.

Years before he confessed to the deadliest school shooting in Florida history, Cruz told a school therapist about his violent dreams, obsession with guns, and desire to hurt people, according to his psychiatric file. Therapists made notes that they had shared "concerns with parent about his obsession with guns/military and his poor anger control."

 

They also advised his mother "to restrict access to any weapon."

 

Sheriff's logs document a litany of incidents in which Cruz and his younger brother frequently broke furniture at home and attacked their mother.

 

In 2016, Cruz posted a video on Snapchat showing him cutting himself, prompting a visit from the Florida Department of Children and Families. The investigator noted that the depressed teenager was on medication and told his mother that he was going to buy a gun, though she didn't know why.
