Yes, Blake's death is truly disturbing and I hope that the guilty party(ies) are convicted for the senseless murder. I still say that it is still apples and oranges. Like you said, this little girl should not have had to die because of what others have done. It is still just the double standard of policing that is done in this country when it comes to race. Even though what happened to the 17 year old was just as criminal, if the police had a warrant arrest a white serial killing child...

Reference: It should be a sin for a child to not be able to grow up in a safe, clean and thriving environment. But to Yemaya's point ... I think the real sin is that more children are not able to grow up in that type of environment within the home. Aiyana Jones was obviously not provided with that type of environment with the type of father and other relatives surrounding her that would senselessly shoot a 17-year-old boy because they didn't like the way he looked at them.

( The Root ) -- The suspected mental-health issues of the Newtown, Conn., man who killed 26 people before killing himself on Dec. 14 has many scrutinizing the resources available for people who suffer from psychiatric disorders. The shooter, Adam Lanza, was only 20 years old, and all of the victims, except for his mother, Nancy Lanza, were murdered at school. These two aspects of the crime are motivating many school leaders and policymakers to engage in a long, unsettled conversation about...

I think people are holding back some truths about this mother, either out of sympathy for her death or because they are of the same mindset. I also find it hard to believe that a person with Asberger Syndrome/on the Autism Spectrum has it in them to commit such a well thought out. premeditated slaughter, without coercion or undue influence to do so.

I suspect that the number of mass killings, like this one, and the countless others in this country, are a result of one of two things or both; under addressed mental illness and drug use. Often it is both, since mentally ill people too often attempt to self-medicate with drugs. Now, particularly, there seems to be drugs out there that we are finding out about too far after-the-fact. For example, look how long people have been using bath salts and K-2 and our legislators are just now...
