#1 It's almost as if someone was reading the Clinton's diaries.

#2 Just think of how curtailing the rights of the law abiding would have turned this boy's life around (spit!)

#3 It's not clear what became of that investigation
It's pretty clear now. I believe such incidents are symptomatic of police incompetence. Because no one goes from wall flower straight to Dillinger without raising red flags while developing his/her psychopathic inertia. If the red flags did not invite the wrath of the law, only polite questions and bespectacled stares... you can bet he didn't much care about 'the fuzz'.
Also, the sealing of juvenile records (especially heinous crime) is a stupid idea in this day and age when an increasing number of juveniles are employed in gangs, and terrorists openly recruit teenagers. What purpose does it serve ?
I would put the feebs on to Mr. Brad Howard too.

#4 nothing in the background of 24-year-old Connor Betts that would have prevented him from purchasing the .223-caliber rifle with extended ammunition magazines
A written rape list and a written kill list? Is it not illegal to make those kind of threats?
Time and time again after these mass shootings, we find that indeed there were obvious red flags in the shooter's background that should have prevented him from being able to legally buy a gun of any sort.
1) We need accountability when authorities drop the ball this way.
2) If I wasn't afraid of being called a conspiracy nut, I'd say it looks like somebody wants this kind of thing to happen.
