Why The Violence?

Law enforcement officers respond to Santa Fe (Texas) High School following a shooting in this Harris County Sheriff's Office photo, May 18, 2018.

Yet another shooting in America where ten people were killed at a school and ten others wounded, including a substitute teacher. Why? What is wrong with American youth these days that they have to go around shooting people at schools. Violence has reached a huge proportion in the United States and no-one knows why. The killing of innocent people has got out of hand in the U.S. and its increasing month by month.

What is wrong with these killers who go around murdering people, and they have no regrets. It has to stop! The most obvious thing is to confiscate all weapons from owners and then the U.S. will return to peace. There are millions of Americans who own rifles, pistols and automatic weapons, but most of them do not go around killing people. But there are those who see that killing people as a compunction, for they have twisted brains and want to create havoc.

In this image taken from video, emergency personnel and law enforcement officers respond to a high school in Santa Fe, Texas, after an active shooter was reported on campus, May 18, 2018.

Why do they think like this? In the last year we have seen numerous killings in schools, and for what? I think they should all go to the death chamber and be killed for what they have done.

Nothing like this has ever been seen in the rest of the world, and the reason is guns are popular in the United States, and most people own at least one, be it a handgun, rifle, or an automatic. There are without doubt too many guns in the Unites States, and it is a plague on the general public.

Innocent youth are being targeted in schools and for what? The mind of the killer must be twisted, for they all have the compunction to kill innocent teenagers. Is it that they were insulted or beaten by bullies? This is not a reason to go around killing innocent teenagers.

The killer has been identified as Dimitrios Pagourtzis and he has been arrested by the police. What will happen to him is anybody’s guess. He was a reserved young man, an athlete who had discussed wanting to own guns but didn’t talk of killing people. Something in his mind must have flipped to make him kill his fellow teenagers.

He told the police that he didn’t want to shoot anyone he liked, but he had a Molotov cocktail at his home, and in a vehicle as well as around the high school. He said in the police station that he intended to commit suicide following the shooting, but told law enforcement officials after he was arrested that he didn’t have the courage to go through with it.

It is hard to understand how people get like this and can kill people, especially school mates, but I guess that is the way of the America.
