And countless Americans.
Many already suffering from PT yes the by putting the photo of Boston bomber Joseph -- -- I -- Looking like a rock star any kid would want to emulate on the cover of their magazine.
They -- justification.
We were trying to sort of draw this contrast between.
The person everyone thought they knew and the person he became -- Really.
Now you guys understand language better than most.
If you're really trying to contrast.
The all American student to the Boston bomber.
Why not show this student and then the bomber like this instead of just an innocent looking team.
And what's that you don't have room on the cover for both.
No I'm not a graphic designer but we did this one in no time.
And by way of excuse Rolling Stone then says well this is the picture every one knows.
The one I know is of him at a baseball cap right before the bombing.
And the good old New York Times coming to Rolling Stones they claiming the writer was just describing -- a normal American kid could go so wrong.
I read the article twice.
I came away with no explanation as to why he went wrong why he became -- terrorists.
Maybe he's a terrorist because he wants to be a terrorist because he chose to be a terrorist.
Or maybe he was just raised by good old -- -- -- mom to be a terrorist.
Or maybe he's just plain evil -- the dabble.
Do why even care -- why he's a terrorist.
If I know why will you be able to stop others like him.
-- the FBI Homeland Security a nice head the family on their radar because the Russians.
Who won't even return our -- No break how the bars -- not a better way to warn us about these freeloaders and they still bombed us.
Not to mention these -- federal agencies didn't catch those radical Internet videos out there for anyone to see.
Wore the explosives in their home and up to blow up the whole block.
-- don't much care why -- fact I really don't give a damn.
The take a look at this copper.
It reads how well popular promising student was failed by his family.
-- in to radical Islam let's Parse it out.
You want to know why he was popular.
He was a drug dealing pot smoking flunking.
Failing virtual all his classes at U mass Dartmouth.
Where he was given a scholarship and then proceeds to sell -- best we need around.
His hair brained friends felt badly.
Because he couldn't afford tops.
His Cambridge friends say they couldn't imagine the pressure he was under because he took out a student loan.
You're a bunch of spoiled brats.
Get a job like the rest of us didn't college or go to a community college.
I'm sure they'd like you were special brand of we need to.
Another of this Cambridge body says he was -- watched.
Okay so now these genius kids many of whom are behind the freeing Joseph -- movement.
Have concluded that there classmate was so dom so impressionable.
And not of sufficient intellect.
To decipher right from wrong.
You think may -- their brains are fried because they are all smoking too much pot.
And -- by -- family.
Wait a minute his parents divorce -- -- became an adult.
How come kids from 50% of American families that are divorced aren't cooking up a few bombs in their kitchen.
You want to know about kids failed by their families.
I can tell you about kids -- by their families.
The ones -- go to sleep in their own beds to become victims of unspeakable torture and abuse.
The one senselessly beaten brutally murdered in ways that I cannot describe on television.
And he felt led to radical Islam.
What are they don't fall off but cliff and landed al-Qaeda -- Is there are crash somewhere or can't -- some wearing Cambridge.
Some potholes so DP can't climb out of -- and then Rolling Stone describes the pain he was in the pain he was hiding.
Really the only pain I give a damn about is the one -- victims are still suffering.
You know -- -- -- so consumed with the rights of criminals that even its name gives them the top billing we call it the criminal justice system.
It should be the victim justice system the victim.
The person who never chose to be a part of this in the first place.
And we coddle criminals -- that they were the violated.
Not the ones doing the violating.
We've got to that's backwards.
We select her ties criminals -- that would respectability.
Make them look -- and rocker cool.
And our hearts bleed for the ordinary kid surely a good boy who want -- story he doesn't seem so bad.
And we long to find sensible reasons for the most brutal of crimes.
As we stitched together a quilt of excuses.
Student loans divorced parents failed by his -- -- falling into radical Islam.
And then we engaged in a national therapy session.
Hot -- we lose him where do we go wrong.
Why do we look so hard to find excuses.
This dirt bag worked hard to maim and kill innocent Americans who themselves.
Worked hard to train their bodies to run a marathon.
Only to come face to face with the evil.
Before our eyes -- terrorist is turned into a rock star.
I have an idea.
How you put pictures of the victims before.
And after the bombing.
Pictures of that in mind his arms and legs and -- site.
I'm talking about the people Rolling Stone didn't bother to give -- voice.
The people -- trauma was denied.
Who re trying to repair their broken lives and will view the future through that prism.
Are about one saying yeah little late traumatic event.
And for you out there are saying.
Is presumed -- Let me tell you the truth about the presumption of innocence.
The phrase innocent until proven guilty does not mean that those of us have examined the evidence before trial.
Must stick our heads in the sand and draw no conclusion whatsoever.
We don't drag people went to court because we assume they're innocent.
We indict them because we believe there -- guilty and there's probable cause an extremely damning evidence that supports that.
Joseph -- I don't like your mother.
And you take after her.
You came here to feed off the -- of our land like the rest of your family does suck us dry.
He should have that allowed here in the first place you hate us.
You write and I'll Barrick well on the inside of the boat that you were cornered and I'd like to respond to that one but my mother's watching.
Joseph -- your not the one in pain.
You're not a rock star cannot cover boy you're damn terrorists the spawn of Satan who should go directly to hell.
Rather than later.
