The Real Bad Guy in Florida

Nikolas (not Cage but Cruz) was having a good time shooting up his ex-classmates.  The liberals blame it on the guns.  The conservatives blame it on mental illness.
Seventeen  dead.  Seventeen wed with death at an adolescent age.  And we wonder who is at fault.  I don’t.  It is the essence of America.  We have become a creepy country that swarms around the gunpowder landscape like worms.
Americans deal out death like dice from a gamblers cup.
They call Nikolas Cruz a suspect.  He is no suspect.  He is the killer.  It’s as obvious as the apologies on a confused killer’s face.
Cruz had become expelled from his school for being so recalcitrant that he couldn’t blend with the other idiots. Imagine flunking out of a dumb high school.  Cruz had a low emotional  IQ.
He didn’t have enough discipline to be disciplined. He is the confusion of gophers ducking from his own rifle on an open field.
