Dan South Posted October 28, 2002 Share Posted October 28, 2002 The snipers have been caught, but are we REALLY safe? This morning a disgruntled student shot and killed professors at an Arizona university. Over the weekend some kid shot seven neighbors after they complained about his reckless driving. What exactly is the problem here? Is this (the U.S.) a civilized society or a savage wilderness? Why have we as a society failed so miserably at conflict resolution, and what can be done about it? Do our schools need to employ more rigorous socialization courses? Do we need to lock up all guns for a few years until violent behavior can be deprogrammed from the populace? Should we sack all violent media programming? This situation cannot go on unchecked. We claim that the terrorists are trying to destroy our way of life when we ourselves are doing an effective job of destroying it already. When did being shot and killed by an irate student, colleague, or neighbor become part of the American Dream? I'm sick of the senseless loss of life, and I want to see something DONE about it! :mad: The Black Knight always triumphs! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
