Society's hand in the Sikh shooting
so it turns out, Wade Page was fired from his job at a trucking company, because he was busted for intoxicated driving in his private vehicle.
he was fired from his job for something that had absolutely freaking NOTHING to do with his job performance.
and he can't go to another company.
DMV hold a record for about 3 to 7 years
then he lost his house.
(it's strange thing, when you get cut off from working, it's hard to pay the bills)
...and these days, when you lose your house you can pretty much count on your wife or girlfriend leaving, which is what happened to him.
his band also broke up.
the guy never owned a gun until this happened.
our society gave him plenty of time to sit around and think of plans.
our politicians love it when things like this happen because gun control has been on their agenda for a very long time.
our society walks away from responsibility by simplifying an issue, such as saying the gun caused the problem.
was this incident REALLY about racism or to a lesser extent guns?
it seems to me the root cause of this incident is irresponsible law, and a person who found his life over before his time.
our society have become experts on telling people "we have something on you, so go die"

The guy has been a drunk for 20 years, he knew what he was doing. Theres no excuse for drinking and driving. Period. When you drive a commercial truck, just like us, you need to know a DUI will bury you. Insurance becomes unaffordable for your employer. Furthermore, his bands, which I notice you've failed to mention was a white supremist metal band, breaking up was probably not what pushed him over the edge. He was a greasy red neck, picked some easy targets to try to make a ridiculous point. I think reasonable people of all political stances can agree this event is no different or less despicable than the shooting in Colorado.

a long time ago , some church people looked at our society, they saw public drunkenness, and they saw families being destroyed by it.
they worked for many years to have alcohol outlawed.
our politicians didn't agree with the idea, they accepted bribes, they allowed smugglers to run wild, they acted like they couldn't find places that sold alcohol to the public, and they eventually got the law over-turned.
the way they have it set up now, alcohol is legal, but if you get caught with it you owe the government money, and you have to hire one of their lawyer buddies to defend you.
how do we go from thinking prohibition is the stupidest law in the world, to wanting to kill someone because they took a drink?
we're so used to this idea, no one realizes how stupid and corrupt it is.
they SELL the poison to you , then fine you and keep a record when you take it.

I see nothing wrong with drinking booze, doing dope, shooting guns, setting fires or any other stupid thing you want to do until it causes problems or harms others. This is the basis for all law. If you lived alone in the desert or desert island, who would care if you were a heroin addict? It is the irresponsible behavior of people when it adversely affects neighbors that we have torts. Be responsible, don't endanger or hurt others, damage their property or deny their rights and we all get along. The problem is not the implement chosen to commit an act but the irresponsible act itself that is the problem. Why does everyone try to make it anything other than personal responsibility, which is the foundation for all civilization and law?

I'm all about the freedom to do what you want, and I generally loathe government, however man must be governed.
As is the case with all rules, the bad apples spoil the bunch.
