Time and again this blog points out that parental responsibility is mighty important in raising a family, as I did earlier this month. In fact, my #9 item listed stated “No guns or other weapons are allowed in the house.”
It is not shocking what happens when sound parenting is discarded like last night’s spent shells. When there are young people who commit heinous crimes, as we witnessed this week from Kyle Rittenhouse, we always want to know more about the family unit which produced such an outcome.
We do know from social media today that Kyle never had a chance at growing up in a healthy-minded home. The image that struck me from his youth is this one.
We know what happens when children are provided with positive role models and uplifting experiences. We also know that happens when troubled parents, and sometimes single ones as in this case, are unable to achieve more with parenting than the breeding process. Bravo, the plumbing worked! But you made a mess of everything else.
The bottom line question for Kyle’s mother is rather simple and straightforward.
How is it that your 17-year-old high-school dropout committed a double murder in a different state with a military assault weapon he was not legally allowed to carry?
I await an indictment or charges brought against the female ‘adult’ who calls herself ‘mom’.
Meanwhile Kyle Rittenhouse has been rightly charged.
1)1st-Degree Reckless Homicide
2)1st-Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety.
3)1st-Degree Intentional Homicide
4) Attempt 1st-Degree Intentional Homicide
5)1st-Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety
6) Possession Dangerous Weapon (Misd.)
