    so it turns out, Wade Page was fired from his job at a trucking company, because he was busted for intoxicated driving in his private vehicle.

    he was fired from his job for something that had absolutely freaking NOTHING to do with his job performance.
    and he can't go to another company.
    DMV hold a record for about 3 to 7 years

    then he lost his house.
    (it's strange thing, when you get cut off from working, it's hard to pay the bills)

    ...and these days, when you lose your house you can pretty much count on your wife or girlfriend leaving, which is what happened to him.

    his band also broke up.

    the guy never owned a gun until this happened.
    our society gave him plenty of time to sit around and think of plans.

    our politicians love it when things like this happen because gun control has been on their agenda for a very long time.
    our society walks away from responsibility by simplifying an issue, such as saying the gun caused the problem.


    was this incident REALLY about racism or to a lesser extent guns?

    it seems to me the root cause of this incident is irresponsible law, and a person who found his life over before his time.
    our society have become experts on telling people "we have something on you, so go die"

    Um....down here, when you get caught drunk driving you lose your license for a period of time between 6 months and infinity and that is for all kinds of driving...

    "Society" bears ZERO responsibility for this creep and his murders. He is a sick fuck. He needs to be given a lethal injection (after he is found guilty, of course) to save "society" the cost of keeping his sorry ass alive......

    No the problem here is as a society we have become a nation of excuse makers no one is ever responsible for their actions anymore it's always society's fault or the fault of someone else. I would say Homer Simpson best represents what we have become as a nation.

    Agreed. A person who makes thier livelyhood driving should especially not drive drunk.
    A CDL carries additional responsibilties you agree to when you get one.

    a long time ago , some church people looked at our society, they saw public drunkenness, and they saw families being destroyed by it.
    they worked for many years to have alcohol outlawed.

    our politicians didn't agree with the idea, they accepted bribes, they allowed smugglers to run wild, they acted like they couldn't find places that sold alcohol to the public, and they eventually got the law over-turned.

    the way they have it set up now, alcohol is legal, but if you get caught with it you owe the government money, and you have to hire one of their lawyer buddies to defend you.

    how do we go from thinking prohibition is the stupidest law in the world, to wanting to kill someone because they took a drink?
    we're so used to this idea, no one realizes how stupid and corrupt it is.

    they SELL the poison to you , then fine you and keep a record when you take it.
