Hi Everyone, my heart is heavy, my thoughts and prayers are with what has been happening on the news with all these shootings were hearing about and the unfortunate things that has happened in Colorado, and I am so sorry to the families and to all those people who had to go through that terrible ordeal by just going to watch a movie at the theatre and someone comes in and shoots fire. My condolences first of all to all the victims who have died from this terrible crime to humanity. Toronto has also had terrible shootings everywhere, and among other places. The more the crime punishments are not severe, the more people will commit crimes thinking its a slap on the wrist. More crime prevention must be done and the way to do that is to have more strict punishments and more time in prison and throw the key away.
No where is safe anymore, and every time I get out from my home, I always say a small prayer and make the sign of the cross to protect me. These people need to get into community outreach programs, sporting activities, community service, helping the elderly, doing things productive to make a difference in the world. More and more needs to be done about it and the Government should really crack down on crime, gun violence and among other serious crimes. The young offenders act needs to be scrapped because no matter how old you are, your name should be on the news and no matter how old you are if you do the crime, you do the time just like how adults are serving those sentences. Punishments are not severe enough. Some countries in the world have 0 Tolerance and they do something about criminals. North America should really start focusing on getting these people on track with their lives. innocent lives are being lost in blood shed crime for no reason at all.
The more violence there is in video games, those terrible TV Shows that influence violence and other terrible things that should not even be on television, the more violence there is in schools the more people get influenced with violence and hate crimes as well as drugs and illegal drugs, the more it will increase in our communities. We all want safe communities, we all want to get to our homes safely without someone pulling the trigger, we all want peace and harmony but without tougher punishments we won’t get anywhere. In Toronto the other day, people are just enjoying a barbecue and just have a community function and someone comes around and shoots fire, killing a lot of people and injuring so many critically. I mean where does it stop? There should not be no more slaps on the wrist and letting these criminals walk. No second chances for anyone. Crime rates are going up higher and higher into staggering heights.
I think because of all the chemicals in the air these days, and all the toxins there are, these things are triggering in peoples brains and it makes people go crazy and that tends them to do crazy things. Chemical imbalance, or something is going on that is making people become more crazy. I do not know what it is, but things need to be changed drastically, the world needs a makeover big time. Governments need tougher laws, 0 Tolerance. You don’t just let a criminal off and go scott free in our public community and into our lives. We all live in this world and our expectations differ from person to person, but where do we draw the line?
Families, Friends, Co-Workers of these people get effected big time when someone loses someone or some people from violence and someone who just shoots fire like its going out of style. I know all of us are going to pass away one day and were here for a limited time, but violence, crimes should not be a way to go. God forbid anything happens to anyone, but I feel terrible for what has happened to victims of violence. It saddens me so much and I started to cry. These things on the news I am hearing, I cannot handle it anymore. I get so emotional and sometimes I do not even want to turn on my TV anymore, I do not even want to open up newspapers because all I see are bad news. I want to be saturated with good news, I want to hear good things happening as we all do, but I think twice sometimes to turn the TV on. Again My condolences to all the victims and my thoughts and prayers are with you all. You all are in my heart and in my soul, and your memories will live on forever in your families, and friends.
Talin, I appreciate your sentiment and I share your sorrow over what has happened, but please do remember that many of us with chemical brain imbalances are also well-rounded, sociable individuals who would never think of violence. I have a chemical imbalance in my brain, but I’m not crazy and I don’t have a violent bone in me xx
One hopes that some day all of your thoughts would come to reality and the world will live in peace and harmony, don’t know if I will be around to see that day 🙂
I was shocked at the news, too. I don’t think the violence dependent on whether one could purchase a gun or not. With a knife any tragedy could occur, too. I think it’s a matter of heart and mind.
While I share you sentiments of condolences, I can’t help but be glad you’re not in charge of due process rights up there…
I’m going to have to unsubscribe to your blog (not that I think you will read my comment or care.)
You’ll be back, Pattie. People love to watch a train wreck.
LMAO…you have made an excellent point….
James Holmes is 24 year old adult with no prior record. This case is definitely not about juveniles being tried as adults or “criminals getting off scott free.” Also, prosecutors have the option of seeking the death penalty in Colorado, which is the most severe form of punishment the United States offers (and which by the way, most other industrialized countries, such as Canada, do not). I’m not a lawyer or anything, and I understand your concern, but the truth is that nothing in this blog post has anything to do with the movie theater shooting.
Also, you’re buying into fear-mongering. Do you really fear for your safety every time you leave the house? That’s absolutely ridiculous but if you want to live your life that way, so bet it. You’re far more likely to die in a car accident, from heart disease, cancer, etc. Fearing attack is a simple response from a reactionary mind.
Thank you for your condolences; Colorado is deeply saddened by this violence. Also sad to see creepy comments.
