    actually a report just out that it is 10 people...

    stuff like this wouldn't surprise me if it happened in the cities, but this is way out in the middle of nowhere.

    it's about 258 miles northwest of the cities.

    no real solid evidence, but here are a few tidbits that may have contributed:
    -the kid's dad killed himself 4 years ago
    -the mother is in a nursing home due to a brain injury from an auto accident
    -grandpa was in law enforcement (where the kid got the gun), and i believe he was living with him.

    kids from the school said he was a loner who always wore black, and was taunted by other kids...

    he DID have it pretty rough, but there is always help out there. i wish these types of kids would realize they can take control of their own destiny, and ignore the taunting of the other kids. I was teased and picked on all my life. Never once did I think of opening fire on them.

    total 19 people were shot, but 10 were fatal, including the kid and his grandparents.

    You would think that people would learn not to tease the kid who appears to be a loner and wears black. In fact, maybe such circumstances indicate a problem someplace.

    Was wondering if someone could do me a favor.

    Go to here and click on this link.

    Be warned however, the reason I need help with this is because I'm pretty sure this site will be blocked by my work's firewall and I really don't want some Nazi webpage showing up on some list somewhere of stuff I visited and shouldn't have.

    So, if you don't need to worry about such things, I'd like it if someone either posted what the kid wrote, or would send me a PM with the text.

    Thanks in advance.
