Police have not yet released details about the -- -- mental state of gunman at a glance so it's impossible to know.
Exactly what happened and why the Charles Krauthammer has some thoughts on what the focus should be.
There -- three elements here you've got the psychology of the shooter.
You've got the weapon and you guys are cultural environment I tend to gravitate towards -- psychology of of the killer I mean when you think about the details of the crime he began by shooting his mother.
In the face that I think is where I would start although I think all of the issues have to be discussed.
I found when -- -- -- the -- -- sense the process to go through McCain it to try and figure out.
Why this happened what went wrong as Ron tents and -- reports we've heard about the -- issues very devoted.
She was really trying to attend to her son to some this developmental needs and challenges.
But not anything -- out to -- home school to put him in -- more you know comfortable environment for him because he -- social challenges.
What what happened patent and wants now.
I thought that.
I gravitate to wanting to know that too and I think that might.
In the policy questions.
About guns and maybe even mental health actually think will be a part of whatever President Obama.
Decides to come forward with.
But the thing that really struck me this week in an article that went around all around but retreated a million times it -- -- not and a -- -- imposed originally.
By a woman that -- she's a mother and she said I am.
Adam lands as mother and she described in heartbreaking detail.
What it was like to have a child and she said just from based on descriptions seemed may be going in the same direction as this other child's I think.
But not -- the killer.
-- But he was a son and there was a devoted mother and you think that there might be a lot of parents today who are thinking -- -- what can I do what should I do.
Did he have everything he needed them.
I obviously not or maybe there is just no simple answer to this question -- Charles this is somebody that I would turn to to say okay help me understand the psychology behind it don't use -- psychiatrist act.
Peace is amazing -- -- -- say and a kids' soccer mom out of Blogspot and I put that up and there's like thousands comments -- It is really really worthwhile read yet yet look it up participant we there're so many -- People are gambling guns -- to -- mental health and and one video games and probably movie violence in what religion the breakdown in family.
We need to point something out.
There was so much misinformation that was put out there that there was a second shooter that he had killed.
The the -- had killed his father first that the mother when it was an employee of the school that the -- So many things we need to just take a breath.
Let the police do their work let's find out all the details of whether or not there is mental health issues what are they what what how was he treated.
And then we can start to assist -- wants to jump in and and solve this problem.
They'll be a date for that it just for me.
What was it -- it is true though that the high school where he went to that school members of staff and teachers counselors security people monitor this guy.
Because he had a series of obvious problems.
One of the things we know about the people who have committed these guys have seen his crimes.
Over the last few years at least they all of them have had mental problems of one kind or another now we.
-- it's probably safe to say a sane person would not do this the question is in a state like Connecticut where -- governor admitted.
That -- cut back seriously on mental health counseling.
In their budgets.
The question is -- that's a legitimate question of public policy question.
Is are we putting our assets in the wrong place should we -- this should this guy that's -- not just monitoring but should he have had some council.
I've been in a special comment he was getting counseling that that's a fact I don't know I'm not as Smart as Charles Krauthammer and don't have the -- we have him but I will say this.
I will say that he knew dispatches computers -- this -- drive he knew to get the body protection.
He also played nonstop video games dynasty warriors which I understand -- expression especially brutal game and these parents go through hell -- breaks up marriages in numbers staggering however if my kid.
Was mentally unbalanced and I was working twenty president make -- unbalanced.
I don't think I would train them to use a lethal weapon even if it was a bonding of -- I would not do it.
And that would make sure my guns are locked up wouldn't -- be we don't -- I don't know if you she would you like you guys up but no question but are we assuming.
-- we not that would doing the exact Dana where are we jumping to conclusion that.
He was mentally ill I mean clearly -- -- issues but prior weather was he diagnosed was he on medication we we don't.
Tablets that in fact an identity I've read a very good piece -- I can remember has written by Iran's foreign and National Journal or treated by him.
Apologies for that but it was about let's not jump to conclusions here about.
Of -- guard and hitting it was that -- stay in the Washington Post.
That there isn't necessarily a link between autism and violence yes -- Asperger's and violence and so that's why I think that it's market.
Take a step back let the investigators -- the police work that they need to do and then let's get some -- and psychiatrists.
Policy people together and see how do what do we need to do to try to help this.
That these families to prevent tragedies like that start off with protect schools via.
