We must stop training criminals.

August 5, 2019

This is going to be short and sweet.

After listening all weekend to people making accusations and even excuses for the Dayton and El Paso killers, I have not heard one word about nipping these psychos in the bud long before they killed.

These murderers did not go from choirboys to killers in a weekend.

Specifically, I’m talking about not covering up for juvenile offenders. The Dayton killer is known to have been a juvenile offender.

We have a goodie-two-shoes mentality that we have to protect bad-acting kids from being labeled as such.

That’s bullshit.

We spend a decade or so making sure no one knows about the thief or animal abuser living next door, so is it any wonder that they mature into full-fledged killers or criminals by the time they turn 18?

The Dayton killer in particular was identified as a person with an extensive juvenile record.

If your old enough to do the crime, you are old enough to have your name and face splattered across TV and the newspapers, and you are old enough to do time right on through your 18th birthday.

And that’s if they even get any time.

Maybe some of these people do come from abusive homes, but often the only abuse in the home comes from the kid.  That was true of the Parkland shooter.

Bad is bad, and age is not an excuse. If the Dayton killer had been charged with threatening classmates as has been alleged, he would have had a record that would have kept him from legally purchasing a firearm.

Think about that.
