    HIS SON IS EVIL…NO EXCUSES!…#PERIOD

    mogeking56 says:

    It’s likely his son was bullied by football 🏈 players and he got his revenge. I remember high school my freshman and sophomore year bullies needed to die or have their legs 🦵 removed complaining to teachers 👩‍🏫 were of no use they would just send you out with a mark on your back trust me their are students in high schools that should be in prison or shot they are dangerous bullies your kids are at their mercy you know what I am talking about if you were one of those students.

    richard masters says:

    It seems that a lot of these shooters were fist victimized or felt victimized in some way. Unfortunately bullying is a way of life in some of these institutions. We have to learn to be kind and understand to one another it's very rare for someone to just take out a gun and start shooting unless they have something going on with them that made them hate to the extent that they were willing to sacrifice their own lives for retaliation some real or imagined abuse. The statement that kids are cruel is an understatement and it starts in elementary school sometimes. Unless you're in that world you don't really know what's going on. I used to live near a middle school and I can hear the kids talking amongst one another as they walk to school they didn't know that I could hear them but I could hear them through my bedroom window. You would be astounded at the cruel and hateful things that these middle school kids were saying about one another and how they treated each other. But if they see you they act so innocent and unassuming. So I truly believe that it is important that we as adults teach our children through example how to handle adversity without it turning into homicide. Fussing, fighting, drama name calling teasing belittling verbally bashing ranking cussing out belittling all that behavior triggers a lot of individuals that already have self-esteem and self identity issues. This is devastating just as every shooting but we have to stop normalizing this because it's getting to the point where that it's happening so frequently that it loses its effect on people unless it's happening directly to them. We have to stop forgetting about these people and moving on every time there's a shooting instead of focusing on how to make it better instead of just waiting for the next incident to occur. I pray for the strength and healing for the family friends and community of the victims. We can't let these losses be in vain

    Nobody #13 says:

    So… Kick them in the balls instead of shooting them. Teaches bullies real fast

    Michael says:

    The father being out of his life for 11 years surely didn’t help.

    Ricky D says:

    Tragic for all.

    Katy Did says:

    The father is not the one who needs to apologize for the murders. Tragic tragic story for all the families involved.

    Cecilia says:

    Daddy… my heart goes out to you. I will pray for you and your family. Along with the other families.

    Fila Speaks says:

    So the father is on trial? you see how the father has been demonized that quick also the father don't know what happened stfu 🤬🤬🤬

    Fila Speaks says:

    They don't do this to white parents , dude stfu 🤬🤬

    Casey Jay says:

    all of them/us, human beings.

    OrangeCreamSwirl says:

    My heart breaks for the father. He clearly loves his son.

    Deb B says:

    I wonder if he carried that gun with him everywhere he went, or if this was planned. They were on a field trip…it was either premeditated, or he carried a gun with him everywhere he went and simply snapped this time.

    Mr. Pizza Marlon says:

    Parents are not at all to blame for the bad actions of their adult kids. The father can raise a child perfectly and that child [still has free will] to choose do good or bad.

    God is the best heavenly Father in the universe, yet Satan never held on to the truth and went from being an angel, to becoming the devil. Parents are not to blame for every bad deeds their kids [willingly] do.

    Deepest condolences to all the family and friends who suffered from this heart breaking tragedy. 🌻 🌻 🌻

    T Pf says:

    these shootings can never be stopped by checking background, they can only be prevented through building a better society

    DeadT.V says:

    🤔 IDK call me tin foil hat that's fine but Football Star, 4.2 GPA, honors society? Also with as soft as this generation is today, how many kids are really still bullying past middle school? Theirs something more to this young Man than just "bullying"

    Jebron lames says:

    You failed absent pop, stay out of prison and tend to your kids looser!! My 4 are dialed in and successful. Its not hard just gotta do the time and then enjoy!@

    tyrone sanford says:

    Dad is part to blame but his son is fucked.

    Talley ho says:

    Funny how this dissapears when it's not a white male doing the shooting….

    mybrainsucks says:

    The father shouldn't be blamed, that's true, but he didn't seem quite as affected as he should be. Seems like that apology was more to cover his own ass to me. Just saying. I'd be devastated if a child of mine became a murderer.

    David Witherington says:

    The father is not to blame let's hope he didn't push no radical ideas in his head and it was just all the punks doing of his own to become a domestic terrorist he needs to be sent to Gitmo tried and then hung unless he prefers lethal injection otherwise they'll turn it into a media circuit with all the fake news Outlet say that he was somehow or another oppressed by someone couldn't be of his own doing he was just a victim of all kind of circumstances blah blah blah and then give him some kind of stupid acquittal or short sentence

    Tracey Seace says:

    Why is he talking????

    boltmanCV says:

    Kid was the black face of white supremacy.

    Meaghan P says:

    This was such a humanizing segment. Praying for all these young men and their families. Such a tragedy. I pray that anyone getting bullied finds strength and anyone bullying finds the courage to change their behavior before things get out of control like this 🤍
