Wake up in a climate controlled home, make coffee by pressing button on machine. Go to indoor toilet, turn on water thatís piped into house, that heats itself, put on clothes that were washed and dried by a machine, go outside and get in a climate controlled car that only requires you to move your hands and feet a few inches to traverse miles. Pull through a drive thru and have food that taste great, but is terrible for you, in under 5 minutes, go to job/or school that requires you to sit in a climate controlled office and type on a computer all day, drive home, order food on the computer without having to talk to anyone, and have it delivered to your house. Flood your brain with tv, while eating, and reading comment sections full of people arguing and saying things they never would in-person, play violent video games, while smoking some weed and sipping a few drinks, watch some porn, jack off, then go to sleep. Then do it all over again the next day. Then after theyíve had a complete mental break and have shot up that school or job, everyone wants to blame guns.
    I donít disagree with tech making it easy. But almost everything you mention was around in the 50s except home computer. The 50s werenít over the top morally corrupt compared to prior decades because they had that latest tech at the time either. Itís morals, people not giving a shit, and not giving a shit about raising their kids. With a few exceptions, most criminals donít come from good families except maybe where drugs or mental illness get involved. These people running through stores and just ripping shit out and walking out? ALL that would stop after about the third fucker getting shot dead by the security guard. I know some of yíall remember going to the grocery store and seeing the officer sitting up front with a shotgun prominently displayed. Some people just suck bc the people that raised them sucked and didnít give a shit, and they donít have to face any consequences. Having an Atari, Nintendo, or playing Call of Duty on ps4 doesnít cha get that much. Just adds to the desensitization and keeps them indoors vs outside. That and everyone is a winner and doesnít learn how to deal with adversity.

    I grew up in Greenville. Didn’t see it there. I have seen it in other small towns across the state. And evidently they need it now. Razor blades locked up for your Gillette. Show ID to buy cold medicine but not vote in some states? Things are backwards as hell in many situations is all I’m saying bc people’s priorities in many instances are warped. I cut in he lunch line in high school, my principal walks up and whacks me with his clipboard and makes me wash dishes in the kitchen until 10 min left in lunch then let’s me eat. I laughed bc I knew I was caught. And the punishment fir the “crime”. There is NONE of that in schools now and from what I can tell very little at many homes. Just sayin...

    I grew up in Columbia and there was a grocery store that casked payroll checks. Every Thursday and Friday there was always a line of mostly blue collar types cashing their checks.
    A ton of cash flowed on these days.

    I always thought, if I was gonna rob a store this would be the one I robbed.

    His tactical breakdown is so on point.

    Thank you very much for posting this! It opened my eyes how easily this could happen at our school. I have concerns about how prepared the school and LEO are.
    I know for a fact that we have access control issues, and I will be addressing that with them soon. Along with their active shooter protocols.
