U.S. shooter troubled parents as kid
The liberal media are knashing their teeth about why a mentally disturbed individual is in normal society? That is the way they wanted it. Go back to the movie and times of " One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest." The left closed most of the "mental institutions" in this country and in the West in general. They wanted the disturbed to feel inclusive and mainstream. That is what spawned so many disturbed street people.
Talk to any family that has tried to get an adult drug addicted family member institutionalized. It is almost impossible. The surprise in all of this is that it does not happen more often.
The Left and liberal media and the Democrats took away from society the only practical way to protect society from those incapable of handling their own problems.
The Republicans are no better. They would never have funded the mental institutions if the Democrats would have approved them in the first place. Had they both agreed the ACLU and liberal courts would have never approved the legislation. Must not interfere with rights you know. Gotta go.

SEOUL, South Korea - The shooter in the Virginia Tech massacre had troubled his parents as a child because of speech difficulties, a newspaper reported Thursday.
Cho Seung-hui left South Korea with his family in 1992 to seek a better life in the United States, Cho‘s grandfather told the Dong-a Ilbo daily. Cho killed himself and 32 other students at Virginia Tech in the deadliest shooting rampage in U.S. history.
"How could he have done such a thing if he had any sympathy for his parents, who went all the way to another country because they couldn‘t make ends meet and endured hardships," Cho‘s maternal grandfather, identified only by his last name Kim, was quoted as saying.
Kim said he had little communication with Cho‘s family after they left for the U.S.
"I don‘t even know my sister‘s phone number," the uncle said, adding he last talked to Cho‘s mother in October, the report said.
Meanwhile, South Koreans mourned the deaths of those killed in the Virginia Tech shootings at a special church service Thursday, some fighting back tears from the guilt that a fellow South Korean was responsible for the massacre.
"As a mother myself, my heart really aches as if it happened to my own children," said Bang Myung-lan, a 48-year-old housewife, holding back tears. "As a Korean, I am deeply sorry for the deceased."
The cardinal said everyone should work together to prevent a recurrence of "such an unfortunate event."
