    Listening to talk radio yesterday, I heard a candidate for county sheriff proposing active shooter drills for schools, hospitals and workplaces which he would implement if elected. It boggles my mind to think such a thing is needed in today’s society. Being older, I remember living in a time when the worst thing that happened in a public place was a fist fight. Now grievances are settled with guns and it is frighteningly commonplace. When and where has society gone wrong?

    Well, Ed, unfortunately..........welcome to 2021 and going forward.

    I read yesterday that local grocery store chain, King Soopers, is requesting that an armed guard be placed outside at every store King Soopers has. Due to the mass shooting that took place in Boulder, CO.

    I just read about this online. Two 15 year old's will be charged as adults "due to the seriousness of the crime". One is a girl and, up until she found out that both of them were being investigated, she had been in the process of making bomb stuff. Her and the three others went by the name "Natural Born Killers". This shooting/bombing was to take place in 2024 at a high school in Pa.. They were also planning on killing two school officials.
    Law enforcement is very, very grateful for the information given about this.

    Decay of modern man. We just had a nut case here who dismembered 2 adults and a child then dumped them in a dumpster set them on fire. Then he confesses he has killed a few others in the past. It was a biblical sacrifice according to him. How can anyone do something so heinous like this and continue on their life? What causes all of this- many, many different things. Big question is how do you correct societys thinking and behavior.

    There has always been evil. Cain/Abel. The big difference is now we all hear about it, non-stop.

    I think they call them sociopath they used to be called psychopaths but they are exactly as you describe their actions killing without empathy or remorse.

    I don't know about that, because we don't hear how every country in the world is doing. Cost-of-living and crime can be extremely low in some countries, whereas in the U.S., it definitely isn't.

    lol - I remember the videos we watched in grade school that showed us how we could save ourselves from an atomic bomb by hiding under our desks. So an active shooter drill doesn't seem that far fetched to me.
