My mother said she never heard of so much craziness involving guns when she was growing up, nor my grandfather. What’s with all the crazies now a days?

I suffer from mental illness: severe GAD, severe OCD, and clinical depression. I’ve seen tons of psychiatrists, been on tons of meds, shock therapy, anxiety treatment programs, nothing has helped. The sad reality is they have no idea what causes these disorders and the only way they deal with it is to drug us to he**. As miserable as I am, I am not violent or evil, just suffering greatly. The violent ones have to be institutionalized. We need more funding for research, FDA isn’t doing much to help. Neuroimmune illnesses are so complex and complicated, beyond the understanding of anything we know in medicine presently. Psych. meds don’t cure, they *mask* the problem (sometimes not always), the root causes are still unknown. I’ve only heard of violence like this in scizophrenia anyways so either this guy was undiagnosed or he was just truly evil.

There is no link between aspergers and violence, sorry. The kid was just evil.
We have an institution in chattahochee, florida for people like this. It’s actually run really well and they offer tons of treatment options. But the people there just can’t be in society, they are dangerous and just crazy.
One of his former classmates during grade school said that on the play ground he would stand apart from the other kids and make "animal noises" and make his face turn red. She said he would seem angry but no one knew why. I keep going back to the video games. On top of everything else he spent who knows how many hours he spent immersed in video games where points are scored by shooting as many people as you can. The graphics are very sophisticated to the point its like actually being there.

No words, just tears.
The rest of you voicing opinions on here and arguing are being insensitive ******.
December 16, 2012 at 10:48am
Really, you guys have to argue on a video like this, after a tragedy like this? So immature and cold hearted.

I read the daily mail and all the europeans were saying “this is what you get for your gun laws” and “wake up obama”. Have people forgotten what happened when we tried to outlaw alcohol? The mobs and gangsters took control and the criminals still got it, just like drugs…………….. Regardless, very very tragic. Perhaps we should have armed police officers in schools to take them down immediately. Parents have a responsibility too, like the denver shooter’s mother said she knew he was dangerous….WTF!?

Yea I was on that one as well and he removed it. And I don’t really care Guz, I’m not playing again.

If you want a good conservative in office, yes they will have to be black. 93% of blacks voted obama. I’m in florida, the big tossup state, and a lot of people here like West.

So they just laugh after they’ve all been physically and verbally attacked???? WTF.

You clearly have no idea what you’re talking about. “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than open your mouth and remove all doubt.”

Stupid. God is probably like “WTF are you doing?”
I don’t recall Jesus or Paul or John the baptist ever playing with snakes. There were busy doing more important things.
There is only one account of Paul being biten by a viper while gathering wood for fire. He did not die.Acts 28:3-6

The Gooch is right. Not all schizophrenics are highly intelligent. And just b/c you’re mentally ill doesn’t mean you’re dangerous. John Nash wasn’t and isn’t dangerous.
And not all murderers or serial killers are mentally ill, there is a difference b/w “evil” and “mentally ill”. Then there are the geniuses like my grandfather who had no psychological issues, was kind and considerate, law abiding. So I’m not really understanding your comparison.

Still in denial?

No he’s not a good singer. My first thought was “oh great people are going to vote for a mediocre singer b/c of the backstory and we’ll have another ho hum singer winning for the 5th year in a row”. He’s very average in his singing and playing. Plus there are others on the show who are exceptional even geniuses.
I don’t think my last comment got posted but I found the web-site of his old band “crawl space” with tons of pictures of him singing on stage in Minnesota. So he most definitely lied about learning to sing in the shower and singing for therapy.
I’m totally turned off by AGT and all the stories, I’d rather people just perform, no stories at all. I also hope that the real soldier in the picture, Norman takes legal action. If he “accidentally” sent 4 pictures of somebody else, WHERE ARE THE PICTURES OF HIM? We still haven’t seen any.
Lastly, I think wolf eyes goth boy needs to be investigated. His story is also BS.

He did lie about learning to sing in the shower. I found his old band’s web-site, plenty of pictures of him singing shows for a rock band called “crawl space”.
Also, he’s not even a good singer. Had the story been true, I wouldn’t have voted for him anyhow. The last thing we want is another ho hum singer winning for the 5th year in a row when there are exceptional talents, even geniuses, who have auditioned. He is a mediocre singer who would not have made it out of playing in bars without this story.
This should be punishable and I hope that the soldier Norman does take legal action (the real soldier in the pictures Poe sent to AGT). This is disgusting.
I think a lot of people are turned off by the show. No more stories please, just let them play. Also, I think wolf eyes goth boy needs to be investigated. His story is BS too.
It is unclear if he CONTINUED to follow or not, but is clear that he started to follow on foot and was told not to.
Unclear as to how long or how far he followed but Z does say, “he ran”.
Z was also not at his original location because he ends with, “Well will they call me so I can tell them where I am?”
So again, we don’t know if he continued to follow and what transpired after that.
But for me personally, if I saw a sketchy person walking around holding something I would not follow him/her by foot in the rain, even for 5 mins.

Listening to 911 call again.
Z: “There’s a suspicious guy……. Looks like he’s up to no good, it’s raining……”
Z: “He was just staring and now he’s staring at me.” “Now he’s coming towards me.”
Dis: “How old would you say he is?”
Z: “Something’s wrong with him, he’s coming to check me out. He has something in his hands.”
D: “Let me know if he does something else.”
Z: “He’s down towards the back entrance.”
D: “Are you following him?”
D: “We don’t need you to do that.”
Z: “He ran.”
So I guess we don’t know if he continued to follow or not and how far. But he was not at his original location as he ends with: “Would you have them call me and I’ll let them know where I’m at?”

Why did Zimmerman follow him when the kid RAN AWAY? Why not just let him run away????? He was advised to NOT follow him.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m just as frustrated as everybody and very very frustrated with sharpton and jackson for making it racial, when it is not racial. But lets be honest, Zimmerman seems like a huge nutcase and is partially to blame.
This picture is a huge deal for the case. Wonder where they go from here, very complicated situation.

Ugh, I could not even finish the video. I live about an hour from this city, and try to avoid these college girls as much as possible. Ugh.
