I take it Mr Roberts wasn't happy with something in his past connected to the Amish?
I agree, he probably wasn't
I always thought he would have been though:ohcrap:
I just had to search to find out what you were talking about...that's shocking, but what's even more shocking is that it was the third fatal school shooting in the US in a week. :ohcrap:
Ive never been more confused...holy shit
And there's just been a bomb threat or bank robbery or something less than
a quarter mile from my house this evening...whoa.
As for what Mr. Roberts did, dispicable.
Its the latest fad I guess. Life sucks, so instead of jumping off a bridge, lets make a big statement and take a bunch of kids with us. Its disgusting, but then, it doesn't matter cause the killer is dead anyway. Nobody can punish him.
i hate the damn amish people... or as the preferre to be called... the
damn horses of theirs crapping all over the road :banghead:
That was compassionate. I guess you're happy that there's three less.
You hate the Amish because their horses crap on the road? Do you hate them because they are in your way? Do you hate them because you don't like their beliefs? Maybe you have a good reason, or.......... are you just ignorant?:banghead:
Although, if I had to argue, which I wouldn't, I'd have to say that cars release more crap than horses do. But then I might counter-argue saying that roads are intended for cars and vehicles, and horses have no place there, to which I'd counter-argue that people can't be forced to use cars for transportation, and horses need some place to be able to commute, to which I'd argue that riding horses is animal abuse, just to make a joke, to which I'd argue that animals don't have rights, because if animals had rights, they'd be able to vote, to which I'd argue that babies and children can't vote and they still have rights, to which I'd argue that they at least have social security numbers.
So that solves it. Animals have no rights because if they had rights, they'd have social security numbers.
no, im not ignorant of them... i just have lived 5 minutes down the road from a huge amish farm and believe me... when its mid- summer and about 90* out... and the first step you take outside you get slapped in the face with the horrible stench of pure horse and cow sh!t... you would soon learn to dislike them easily... not to mention that they dont really care about their children or their animals... if one of their working animals has the slightest thing wrong with them, they will kill it... now im not trying to go all PETA here but that is pretty wrong. its kinda the same with children. when the boys are about 3 years old, they are out on the machinery helping with it. my family knew an amish family and the mans son that was 5 years old died because he couldnt control the 6 horses he was driving to pull some farm equiptment. now... animal cruelty is one thing... ut having young kids work that kind of stuff is quite another.
Back in the day that the Amish hold onto, one of the biggest, if not the
biggest, reasons mommy and daddy had kids in the first place was to help
out on the farm. It makes sense if you think about it. With their
lifestyle and culture, putting kids to work is accepted, normal, ethical,
and necesary, just as it was for the vast majority of people in this
country 150 and 200 years ago. It's probably better for them than the
pampering they recieve nowadays anyway. Yes, thekids are put at a greater
risk in this lifestyle, but all cultures have their ups and downs. And I'm
not trying to say that whatever a culture dictates as acceptable is.
Muslims stoning women because they've been raped is different from a
child's accidental death on a farm.
As for the manure smell, well I can't blame ya there :laughing:
I didn't mean ignorant of them,..... just ignorant.
I grew up in farm country, so as far as the smell goes-- it just smells country and I don't mind it.
BTW, they may hate you too! So if some night you happen to hear clippity clop clippity clop clippity clop, BANG... It was just an Amish drive by shooting.:laughing:
lol I learned why that joke's funny in sociology class.
well now someone kinda sorta agrees with me
I read in a paper that something happened with his son or daugher dying that drove him to do what he did. Still terrible.
Yep, but unexcuseable......the bloke done the right thing in killing himself too, atleast he'll go to hell now.....maybe?....:banghead:
I don't think he should have committed suicide, that's the cowards way out...and starting to become a bit popular. I'd rather have had him survive, and then be tortured a bit...then killed.
You're probably right actually.....torture would have suited him....but would it have happened? Maybe stick him on death row......and torture him that way!
Probably wouldn't have happened, but he would have gotten closer to what he deserved.
So our man had an urge to molest little girls and when things didn't go to plan he shot them and himself. Sick mongrel.
He probably woulda been released on paroll after 5 years...
or, he could have easily plead the all famous "insanity" thing... people seem to get off with that pretty damn easily:banghead:
If that. The american judicial system is a joke
......Now all the criminals in their coats and their ties
Are free to drink martinis and watch the sun rise .......
In a highly publicized case, I'm sure he wouldn not have gotten off on
parole ever. I am sure he would have had about 3 life sentences or be
You guys are being very ignorant and generalizing our justice system
Hey... like Ron White says (even though im not from Texas) "We have the
Death Penalty, but here in Texas, we actualy use it."
just because the US has the death penalty, doesnt mean that they would have nesecarily used it. kinda weird...:screwy:
I think in this case it would have been used.
true... but you cant say that in some thought in your mind it didnt cross that they actualy wouldnt use it? i mean... they have used it less and less... something about being inhumane or some crap like that... i believe they could have found a reason to not kill him.
Regardless, he killed himself and saved us many tax dollars. No complaint there :D
