Ugly what I wrote, wasn't it? But wait, it gets worse.....
If you go down the list of mass shootings at U.S. schools, most of the killers turned the guns on themselves after killing classmates and teachers. Several others were killed by police, and a few were taken into custody alive.
Two are now out of prison. They were arrested in a state that, at the time, could not charge juveniles as adults (the law in that state as since been changed) But they probably learned their lesson in Juvie lockup. Or have they?
One has since been arrested with….wait for it…. an illegal handgun. The other is now applying for a concealed carry permit under a different name - which he legally changed. And unlike registered sex offenders, nobody who ends up living next to them will even know they're there. There is currently no registration for “freed mass murderers”. Until they go off again, which I’ll bet my thumbs they do. Maybe they’ll live next to one of us. Or next to one of our grown children and their babies. Nobody will even know they’re there. Until you know when.
If you don't think there's a chance of that, my brother, go talk to Santa Claus.
A film/drama can immediately be judged as worthy of turning off if: begins with a scene with someone being pursued, breathlessly through a forest, includes a scene with a person walking in slow motion toward the camera and away from a huge fiery explosion, dropping to the ground in that hero crouching pose.
