Rum, beer, women, movies, nice websites, gaming, etc., without interrupting the flow of martial threads.

The suspect in Friday's school shooting may be considered an adult in Texas state courts, but he cannot face the death penalty, according to a 2005 federal Supreme Court ruling.

For 100 years, Texas has considered 17-year-olds to be adults when they commit crimes, according to research from The Marshall Project. And Dimitrios Pagourtzis was charged Friday as an adult with capital murder and aggravated assault on a peace officer.

But the 2005 high court ruling that bans execution of criminals younger than 18 and a 2012 ruling about juveniles facing life in prison mean that Pagourtzis could be up for parole after 40 years.

“The courts ruled based on the idea that those 17 and younger don’t have the cognitive development to appreciate right from wrong,” said Michael Radelet, a University of Colorado at Boulder sociology professor who has testified in more than 75 death-penalty cases. “Cases like this that are especially violent and an enigma make some people think they are more deserving of death, but the ruling is about the development of the juvenile brain.”

Won't be long before these Texans are called crisis actors out to shred the Constitution due to Ridilin and video games.

Pretty sad to think that the female exchange student would have probably been safer getting an education back in Pakistan than in the US.

Well, they're talking about increasing security at the event. But, it seems that the guy was upset at losing at video games. Oh, and it was apparently a football video game, not Grand Theft Auto or Call of Duty.

It seems that anything can trigger a massacre, has subliminal advertising put us in a triage mode. What next, a restaurant shootout because an order of poached eggs came fried.

It was in Florida and gun possession wasn't checked. The NRA spokesperson complained that there were too many "gun free" zones.The next Madden event will be in Virginia, an open carry state, but there will probably be metal detectors. But, of course, nothing will stop someone from getting pissed off at losing and attacking people when they enter or leave.

Killing's getting ever more casual.
