Parkville Massacre Aftermath Teachable Moment: Old School Marriages Never Work



MSM is making readers dig far too deep for deets regarding this tragic slaying that shocked a suburban community.

The domestic drama isn't really that sordid just reminder that 2nd chance marriages are often doomed to failure for those with extended family connections. Of course, the drama usually ends in court and not in slaughter . . . Still . . . This nightmarish scenario serves as warning about the stress that old school romance sometimes creates . . . Checkit:

Authorities say one of four adults found dead in a suburban Kansas City home killed the other three victims before killing himself.

Platte County Sheriff Mark Owen identified the shooter in Sunday's deaths outside Parkville as 50-year-old Douglas Pauling. Owen said investigators believe he killed his mother, 73-year-old Sharmalee Pauling; her husband, 66-year-old Carl Deruyscher; and 49-year-old Margaret Girard.

This is the real reason men buy guns. They fantasize about doing it, until they finally do do it. Some even prepare diligently by practicing at the range, & with first person shooter video games. All gun owners are bullies & cowards.

We proudly lead the world in gun related homicides.

most people make fun of people with a mental disease and treat them badly, they already feel bad enough, it’s not their fault that they were born this way and most of these people choose suicide so they’re not a burden to those they love. It’s incredibly sad to watch these kids deal with these things let alone a grownup who is afraid because of the stigma attached. These people are on incredible highs one day and an incredible low the next, it wreaks havoc on them. Until you’ve walked in the shoes of parents who have kids with this awful disease you will never understand it. It’s unbelievably painful and heartbreaking to go through for everyone.

2:25, How do you know the killer?

@2:27-you would because you're feeble-minded and are easily entertained. You're also quite possibly an elderly racist as most of the commentators are. They are either complaining about the city, or using vile racial epithets to disparage women, blacks, gays, and really anyone else who isn't white and elderly.

There's nothing in news reports that blames the second marriage, so why are you floating that as a theory?

Also, 1:10 -- all gun owners are bullies and cowards? You are incredibly stupid.

Some mental health issues can be traced to chemical imbalances in the brain, but by and large the root cause of this crisis is capitalism and colonialism. And if you want a true fix, the prescription is revolution.

^^^ So, see you tomorrow then???

Cool.

Dex said...

@9:58 Is the headline callous and provocative? Yes. But that doesn't mean it's incorrect.

Marriages later in life have a higher rate of failure, that is a fact. It's also a fact that the senior marriage brought at least one of the victims into harms way.

What you are arguing is a question of taste. And honestly, you're on a blog that regularly slams politicians, local events and civic traditions. So it's unfair for you to expect anything less than irreverence from TKC and the commenters. Rather than being outraged, I think that if you're so gentle that you can't take it. You might want to find something more sanitized to read.
