BlockquoteAnd since you have all the info, just how old is that "young girl" you mentioned as being in the home? Twelve? Fifteen? Twenty?

Reading comprehension, critical think and deductive reasoning are your friends, rolando. The article says the mother is only 23, right? It's not uncommon for young girls to get knocked up anywhere from 13 on up, even younger in some rare cases. She could have a 12 year old, if she gave birth when she was 11 herself. Possible, but not probable. Figure if she had the oldest when she was 16, the child could be 7 right now, and being left to watch two younger siblings. It's a foolish act by the mother, one that could have ended tragically. These are the problems we see when we have babies having babies.

Another question that needs to be asked is.... Why wasn't the husband arrested, too? He is just as responsible for those kids as she is. When you marry, or otherwise co-habitate with, a woman with children from a previous relationship, you become responsible for their well being. It's a package deal, you don't just get mommy.

I still can't figure out why supposed adults still believe in all this christian mythology to begin with. We all had invisible, imaginary friends when we were little, but most of us outgrew them by the time we were 8 or so. Religion is the cause of most of the world's problems today, especially war & death.

Even though the shooter was mentally unstable, you can still point to the hate-mongers like Sarah Palin, Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter and Michelle Bachmann and their vitriol as part of the problem. Each one of these hatemongers has openly called for the harm or death of Democrats. They all have blood on their hands.

Assault weapons drawn to arrest a pot head? Really?? Another example of the abject failure of the "War on Drugs".
