    By the way, I can agree with upping the age required to buy a high powered weapon to around 25. Wouldn't hurt my feelings and wouldn't infringe on my 2nd amendment rights.

    One of the after effects of things like this that tends to get ignored/overlooked. Very sad.

    https://www.cbsnews.com/amp/news/par...her-own-life/?

    On the day a gunman opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Sydney Aiello escaped with her life. However, the grief of losing 17 of her classmates and teachers, as well as the long-lasting effects of enduring such a traumatic event, weighed heavily on her. And this weekend, at the age of 19, Aiello took her own life.

    ...

    Sydney's mother, Cara Aiello, told CBS Miami her daughter struggled with survivor's guilt and was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder in the year following the tragedy. And while she reportedly never asked for help, she struggled to attend college classes because she was scared of being in a classroom.

    That is awful. Trauma in general can have a horrible psychological impact on people. But the nature of this type trauma obviously can be really bad. My wife's aunt lost a son to a drunk driver and attempted suicide. Fortunately, she was unsuccessful and was able to get admitted to the right places. But even 30 years later she's not even close to being the same person. Very, very sad.

    Good - if you don't have the guts to do the job, get out of the law enforcement business.

    What a coward.

    Heartbreaking. I can’t imagine the pain Mr Richman has tried to endure. God rest his soul.

    I think if my name were Scott (or Scot) Peterson I would change my name.

    Not that this matters (though that never stopped me before), but.......in 2003-4, I lived in California....DURING the whole Laci Peterson saga. She vanished prior to my getting orders to Beale AFB, and the discovery (etc) was shortly after I got moved into my house. Two doors down from me - in northern California in the spring of 2003 - was a guy named.......Scott Peterson.


    Other side note. In 1997, I had a good friend who drove trucks and on rare occasions he hauled contraband for the CIA. They never told him what was in the truck. But he had to get a copy of his bill of lading yadda yadda. So he stops off at a K-Mart to do it and pulls his long truck alongside the store, gets out, and goes in to have his stuff run off in the office. All of a sudden they announce to evacuate the building. They let him copy as he's about done, and he goes out to his truck. LEOs follow him to his truck and ask him what he's hauling. He tells them he has no idea no idea (he obviously can't mention the CIA, and who believes that anyway?). But he's denying them the right to search his vehicle. He's cooperative otherwise so they ask to see his license. No big deal, he shows it to them.

    I think you can imagine the reaction when the cops found out the guy hauling explosives in 1997 was named Jim McVay. Timothy's trial was actively going on at the time.......
    My New Year's resolution for 2019 is this year I'm not going to drink anymore. I'm not going to drink any less, either.

    I was married for 25 years, but if I'd killed her on the honeymoon, I'd have been out in less than 20.

    After reading all the horrible things drinking will do to you....I gave up reading.
