Police began to paint a picture today of the troubled 19-year old
shooter, Robert A. Hawkins, who had previous run-ins with the law, but
had not been associated with violence. They do not know yet why he
chose the Westroads Mall on Omaha’s west side to carry out his brutal
final act before taking his own life, or what demons he was battling
when he wrote in a note to friends, in a haunting foreshadowing of what
he was about to do: “Now I’ll be famous.”
So, That’s how it plays out?
A 19 year old rolls up into the mall and catches nine bodies (plus his own) on some ole “Now I’ll be famous” type bit and he’s…troubled?
Well, excuse me.
Where is the wrath?
Can I get some righteous indignation up in this bitch???
How you gonna go around Poppin random Department store employees in America’s heartland…over a job a Mickey D’s and a failed teenage relationship, no less and not feel the wrath of the conventional wisdom?
I tune into the Morning shows looking for thinly veiled outrage and I get…not so much sympathy but compassionate befuddlement?
IS THIS WHAT IS HOT IN THE STREETS in the AUGHT SEB’N?????
Man, fuck that.
I want some Outrage and wrath dammit.
I want blame placed on what he listens to on his Ipod or plays on his Xbox.
I want blame placed on his parents…on his culture..cause you know teenage white kids are GOOD for bussin off shots arbitrarily cause they aren’t getting their daily quota of Hugs.
All this random compassionate “WHY” throwing is coming off MAD suspicious, to me.
Racism is gone, so it can’t be that. Someone wanna splain this foolishness?
Anyone? Bueller? Anyone?
Uh huh. Your silence Speaks volumes.
