Imagine, Hawk, OmSigDave, the uber libertarian, trying to tell you just what you should do to express yourself, how you should handle your discussions.

Could a person be more hypocritical than that?

@hawkeye10,
I'm not bothered by little children who are learning to express themselves, Hawk. And I doubt you are either.

@hawkeye10,
What's interesting is that info on a year in Holmes life seems to be missing. I think he graduated from college in 2010, but did not start his graduate program until a year later. What was he doing during that year? Had he applied to grad school but not gotten in (seems unlikely) or not gotten financial aid for grad school the first time around (that's possible) or had he been having serious psychiatric problems and/or drug problems during that year (also possible)?

I read somewhere he had worked part-time at a McDonald's, but it wan't clear when that might have been, and I think, if that was true, people who worked with him would have already spoken out about what he was like.

I also read that when he was arrested he had a bottle of Vicodin with him--don't know if that's true, but, if it is, it might indicate a drug problem in addition to paych problems.

Been reading into the laws and practices of universities disclosing to authorities that they have mentally troubled people on campus. It is jarring how little they can legally do with people who are potentially very dangerous with serious mental issues but let a woman claim that a man went too far in sex and all hell brakes lose

If someone is actively making threats, they can do something. That's what just happened with the Maryland man who was threatening to shoot people at his workplace after he was fired. The threats were reported to the police, who went to his home and found 25 guns, and they took him to a hospital where he was kept for observation. But, maybe if it hadn't been for the very recent Aurora theater shooting, the police wouldn't have been so fast to act.

Virginia Tech had tried to get Seung-Hui Cho psychiatric treatment long before he committed his massacre on campus, but nothing they did really helped And people on campus were frightened of him.

Just being "mentally troubled" doesn't mean you are dangerous. And Holmes might have been acting weird or strange toward the end of his grad school semester without seeming aggressive, or threatening, or dangerous.

However, since Holmes was in treatment, his psychiatrist could have had him hospitalized if she felt he was an imminent danger to himself or others. And if he had told her of any specific threats against others, that she considered credible, she had a legal obligation to warn any intended specific victims, and to notify the police.
Either he completely concealed what he was planning from his psychiatrist, or she made a very bad professional judgment call in not hospitalizing him. She might well be civilly liable in this situation, and because she worked for the University, they might be liable as well. At some point, she will have a lot of explaining to do.

they dont take seriously my contention that he was seeking glory, that this was about ego pumping

He may have been "seeking glory"--but to do it the way he did is also more than slightly crazy, particularly since his actions might have been connected to rather grandiose fantasies or delusions.

Hi OmSig. How's it hanging?


This question begs an hilarious response. Will someone please step up to the challenge? Hint: Start off with "(speaking for David)."

I saw your first go.....you should have stuck with it.

The answer is: No, the uptight asshole liberals around here will not allow it. It increasingly looks like living in their utopia would feel like being under Tolken's Sauron. Did you see the recent study which shows that conservatives are much happier people than liberals? We know that to be true, dont we.

That's not at all surprising, Hawk. A bunch of Alfred E Neumans.

and yet 93.2% of these same liberals tell their kids over and over again "I dont care what you do so long as you are happy!"

Happiness is the preeminent goal in life....except when it is not.

Looks to me that according to the liberals own rules the conservatives win.

You did? Yeah, I went to the trouble of typing it up, then I turned chicken and deleted it. But for once in my drab life (always worred about what other A2Kers think of me), I shall throw off the shackles of inhibition and throw caution to the winds (too repetitive) and resubmit it (well, as best as my memory permits) ... even if it means that I shall afterwards receive a dreaded and much deserved spanking from Setanta ...

Yes, I know it's perverted; but it's fun to get a beating from the master! Oooooo ... I just love the feeling of it! Twisted Evil
