Chardon High: Why Kids Kill? It’s Not “Bullying.” But Don’t Wait for “Experts” to Admit It

It’s the family, usually:

Parent of Teen Accused of Shootings Faced Charges (, no link)

The father, Thomas Lane Jr., was known to county authorities because of a series of arrests for abusing women in his life, court records show. It’s not clear how much contact the father and son had.
But between 1995 and 1997, the boy’s father and mother, Sara A. Nolan, were each charged with domestic violence against each other.
The father was later charged with assaulting a police officer and served time in prison after trying to suffocate another woman he married several years after his son was born, according to court records.
He held the woman’s head under running water and bashed it into a wall, leaving a dent in the drywall, court records show.
But soon after he went to prison, the woman wrote a letter asking that he be released early.
She had divorced Thomas Lane but said in the letter that he was always a good father to their twin daughters and a son she had before they married.
Some youths who attended a vigil at a church on Chardon’s square Monday evening said that the teen lived with his grandparents and had multiple step- and half-siblings. His grandmother declined to comment.

But you can’t sue school districts that way.

And these bullying industry experts don’t get a payday . . .

if they can’t blame the usual suspects: the victims themselves.

Nor can this one, who was quick to advertise his services. 

Meanwhile, the White House is awaiting news of whether they can exploit the tragedy.

  1. although the triggers and ‘reasons’ for incidents of mass murder vary with the perpetrators, at base they are all malignant narcissists- with outcroppings of sociopathy here and there. the bullying mantra that emerged with columbine is nothing but blaming the victims to excuse the criminal personality responsible. in other words ,it’s a fallout from years of de-stigmatizing crime and anti-social behaviors while simultaneously shifting the blame for interpersonal violent crime to society as a whole-remaking the defendants into the actual, true victim so the real victims and their pain, loss and grief-their ugly uncomfortable- making reality- can be disappeared . focus can therefore remain on the criminal and his more significant pain and loss. that’s where the money is, after all, in the criminal justice system- it’s with the most lethal , dangerous perpetrators and prisoners especially those on death row. there’s no money to be made catering to the needs of victims.

    many of us were rather mercilessly bullied by up and coming sociopaths and sadists,alpha male jocks and damaged, abused kids lashing out- back when there was much less focus on or concern about ‘ ‘bullying’, no bullying industry and significantly less societal support for alternative lifestyles and orientations . from my experience there was a tacit encouragement by adults of the more socially significant tormentors over their often more awkward, less socially integrated targets. if unchecked bullying made teens into mass murderers no baby boomers and gen xer’s would have survived high school.

    i really think the bullying defense is the twinkie defense-nothing more. it’s tailored to fit the liberal narrative that criminals are just victims of the larger society and therefore should never under any circumstances be punished-but rather it is society itself deserves to be rather punished by these political prisoners/freedom fighters. its always everyone else’s fault but the one who picked up the gun. it’s the point at which our whole justice system is collapsing on itself and on us.

    i just have to tell you how very important and well done your site is. when it appeared to disappear a week ago i nearly fainted. thank you for sharing your incredible insights- they are desperately needed.
