"I'm sure he had his reasons" - Shooter's mom wants us to "not judge" him

Just saw an interview with the shooterís mother on CNN. Her comment to the parents of the dead? She hoped the dead kids can forgive her- and ďIím sure he had his reasons, so please donít judge him.Ē


Thereís no way I just heard that.






Iím out.


Found an article for context:

1. She wouldn't know what any of those "reasons" might be, however.

Ugh. Appalling.

3. There are no "reasons" to murder little kids watching cartoons.

This ďhe must have his reasonsĒ is possibly an artifact of patriarchy, imo. When I lived in Texas, the pampering, the molly-coddling of men and adolescent males was TOTAL.

11. Be interesting to hear what the Grandmother has to say when she can speak. She has been writing in a

notebook. I also read that she was about to evict the mother because she has a drug problem.

I know the source is sucky, but I don't see anyone else reporting on the grandmother's condition yet.

With the donít judge him/forgive me comments

She must not be in her right mind at present but perhaps she is feeling guilty because she knows what the reasons are

35. And she's trying to process that like everyone else.

I donít know if it sounded as bad in Spanish (this was a translation) but Iím sure a lot of people would say stupid things in the same situation with a microphone shoved in their face. Sheís trying process how her son could commit such a horrible act. If investigators find she had a direct cause, Iíll change my mind, but until then Iíll cut her some slack.

27. I read elsewhere it was because of a fight over Internet service.

She wanted to cut it off, presumably to punish the kid.

Stepdad said the kid was always antisocial.

Nor will I forgive or excuse him. My belief is that he has faced his final Judgment and I trust in that.

Nobody on Earth can judge him now. Only Lucifer can judge him and condemn him to everlasting justice.

32. People are inarticulate and say stupid shit they regret.

They fall back on meaningless clichťs when under pressure.

I'm going to reserve judgment of HER, for now, because there's no way she's not in the middle of a crisis of grief and guilt. She birthed a psychopath. They're not made; they're born.
