Re: “A Troubled Voice

I too viewed the YouTube and MySpace websites. I also have been following the psychological theories of the nation, and have come to realize that way too many people don't get the esoterica that this very disturbed man was following. Between the prophets of 2012, Mayan Calander, Kaballah, and other "End Days" theories laid out in many books - it is clear that this young man felt a presence of an unseen "Big Brother", and lashed out at the Community using his few protections he had - Free Speech and Firearms.

The "Sleepwalker and Listener" he speaks of are perceptions of an elite few that follow these very old forms of communication and their of use of language. I won't go into this much further - but I understand his frusrtations in the proper use of the "written language" he speaks of. Perhaps this is best explained in the scene of the movie "National Treasure" in which Nick Cage is reading the Delcaration of Independence - and says something to the effect of: People don't think and write like that anymore. I think this young man was born in the wrong era, or wrong place, and perhaps just lived out on "the fringe" way too long...as this often happens to the bright and misguided. Perhaps his nation failed to see a brilliant young man, and instead cast him aside, and he in turn lashed out in the only way he felt he could.

I am saddend at the end result. I wish the families and those who were directly effected nothing but the best. To the rest of the folks who seek answers: Look at yourselves deeply and see what you know to be true..."We" as Neighbors, Friends, Teachers - and finally as a Nation failed to see this young man for whom he was. Perhaps because of just the reasons Nick Cage states in the Movie "National Treasure": People just don't think or act like that anymore.

Re: “Forced Submission

To add to the last post: If you have ever lived with chronic pain, especially the kind that Schipke has, then your outlook on life might not be so rosey and wonderful. To be in pain, and forced to wait for a public servant who drags a simple process out, you too might have said something stupid. The concept that she was sent to prision in Texas of all places is not a wonderful thing either - I spent two years there myself in the TDCJ (Texas Dept. of Criminal Justice) system. It's far from the taxpayers "club fed" that you might think. In fact, I would compare some of the treatment I witnessed there would compare to POW camps in wartime. This woman is clearly not a terrorist, although there are folks that would like to see her gone. I can relate to this story myself - I wouldn't call her a bad person, as I have crossed her in a public setting once, but she can learn a serious lession about actions and accountability. I would chalk this one up as a lost soul who could use a couple of friends and a really good lawyer !! I think she could really use some help getting into the "right" place - be it a group home, community apartments, or some form of socialized rehab to deal with her larger issues. I wish her well.
