Seattle Times Updated Coverage
My original post:
Now we all know what happened last Friday. And with all the talk about Ebola and terrorism and
war...you may have thought that no one would have the stomach to start shooting, again. But someone did.
At the moment that Jaylen Fryberg fired the first shot, and the first victim fell...better things were
happening in other places...a baby was probably born...a child kissed his grandmother on the cheek...a woman gave a funny TGIF card to her coworker...a father finished a loving conversation with his son,
who is stationed in the military, half-way around the world.
But Jaylen didn't see any of those things happening...and he didn't care. He was immersed in his own, tiny portion of the Universe. He was small-minded and focusing only on himself.
"Waaaah, waaaah, I can't have the girl so I guess I'll go blow somebody's brains out...waaaah."
What a stupid, short-sighted fool.
And I believe that it is time to start calling these kiddie shooters exactly what they are: SELFISH ASSHOLES.
What gets me is the fact that the media has a tendency to report more on the shooter than the victims. It's as if no one wants to think about how the bullet felt when it tore into an innocent kid's head. And that is all wrong, in my opinion.
"Oh, he was such a troubled boy..."
"Troubled" my butt!!
Jaylen Fryberg, like every other selfish asshole kiddie shooter, pulled up his entire insanity file and transformed into a spoiled jerk. He didn't care, for one minute, about how those kids felt. He just kept on firing that goddamn gun!
It was not the World's responsibility to perfectly please Jaylen Fryberg. If he didn't like something that happened in his life, it was up to him to MAN-UP and deal with it properly. People have to deal with tough stuff all the time. That's life.
But that was not an excuse for Jaylen Fryberg to start shooting other kids.
Jaylen Fryberg: What a waste.
I hope that the victims survive and get a fair chance to live the life that Fryberg didn't have the guts to face.
