The mom of the 24 yo man that did it, lives out here in SO cal. the local news woke her up and told her what happened. Could you imagine waking up to that news or being the family of any of the victims? May have been a midnight showing but you know a lot of that audience were probably teens and younger.
Media will start blaming violent movies, video games and probably gun control and or the young man’s personal life/upbringing. Was he just a sociopath? I don’t think so. There’s been so many of these now and I fear more to come. They can’t all be the work of natural born sociopaths. While media and access to guns may not have helped, I think there’s another problem in this country, just a plain lack of empathy. It seems to be growing and I see it everywhere on the roads, at the line at the grocery store and on tv and in media and politics.
Please don’t derail a movie thread with the politics this was just a thought.
