"We have met the enemy and he is us" ~ Walt Kelly as voiced by Pogo.

It wasn’t the video games. It wasn't the gun. It wasn't the FBI. It wasn't fluoride in the water. It was us.

"PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The last piece of legislation President John F. Kennedy signed turns 50 this month: the Community Mental Health Act, which helped transform the way people with mental illness are treated and cared for in the United States.

Signed on Oct. 31, 1963, weeks before Kennedy was assassinated, the legislation aimed to build mental health centers accessible to all Americans so that those with mental illnesses could be treated while working and living at home, rather than being kept in neglectful and often abusive state institutions, sometimes for years on end."

"Few anticipated how quickly President Kennedy’s aspiration of reducing the institutional population by half would be realized. By 1980, the inpatient population at public psychiatric hospitals had declined by 75%. In 2000, approximately 55,000 remained in these institutions, representing less than 10% of those institutionalized just fifty years prior. The shift was especially pronounced among children and youth: by 2009, the institutionalized population had declined by 98%."

We did it to ourselves.

Yet they still believe they are the way. They are not the way, they are the destruction of everything decent.

Have a fabulous day, Odie and keep up the good work. ☺

You might want to look at https://crimeresearch.org/2015/06/comparing-death-rates-from-mass-public-shootings-in-the-us-and-europe/

for another Lib/Dem lie.

The US is not even in the top 10 for death rates in mass public shootings.

My dad was one of the many officers at the tower that day and I was lucky enough to know a lot of the cops involved when I was growing up, and when I followed him to the police department. I have a copy of the detailed police report that he kept. Whitman not only had a 6mm Remington he also had an M1 with 7 magazines, a .35 caliber pump action rifle, a sawed off 12ga shotgun and 3 pistols. Most of his rounds were fired with the M1 carbine before Houston McCoy stopped him with 2 rounds from a shotgun. Ramirez fired his service revolver after Whitman was already dead, but he got credit for stopping him. Took a long time before they got it right.
