The horrific school shooting in Florida has brought out the best and worst of some people in America. Many people blamed the gun as if an AR-15 has legs and can walk around and shoot people on its own. The rest of the country’s citizens, primarily those with more common sense and logical thinking skills, have blamed the shooter for his actions. A combination of mental health issues paired with a traumatic home life that included adoption, watching a parent pass away in real time, and a combination of the other problems was an instant recipe for a school shooter.
Many people who blame the gun won’t ever truly solve the problem or prevent another shooting from occurring. Those who dig deeper into the issue will hopefully come up with ideas that help prevent school shootings by providing mental health services to those who need them the most.
All of this has sparked a full debate upon gun ownership, guns in general, and the topic of preventing school shootings. The National Rifle Association (NRA) was attacked by leftists and corporations, even though the NRA doesn’t sell weapons and is only responsible for uniting people who wish to protect the second amendment. Students have walked out of class gleefully, using the tragedy in Parkland, FL, as an excuse to cut class. Activists protest and hold events to ban or confiscate guns. And then there’s this guy! He’s the Wisconsin sheriff who wrote a Facebook post that identifies another problematic epidemic with the current generation that’s sweeping the nation with incidents of bad behavior from children. He points the finger right at the problem and some of you reading this might be offended when you realize that you could be part of the problem. Or you might already be part of the solution. Read his Facebook post and decide if you agree with it. His name is Sheriff Dale J. Schmidt and this is what he had to say about the truth of school shootings:
February Sheriff ColumnFollowing every mass killing, I ask myself, what has happened to our society? I also wonder…
Western Journal contributed more to the story about Sheriff Schmidt’s crucially important message:
“A Wisconsin sheriff sounded off on what he believes to be the “root cause” of mass shootings in the U.S., and called on parents to discipline their children more effectively.
Dodge County Sheriff Dale Schmidt penned a Facebook post Thursday arguing that a major cause of mass shootings may be a radical culture shift that has occurred in the U.S. over the years — a culture shift caused by weak parenting.
“Following every mass killing, I ask myself, what has happened to our society?” Schmidt wrote. “I also wonder what the solution is to ensure our families do not become future victims.”
The Wisconsin sheriff pointed out how “years ago, people would go to school and have hunting rifles in their vehicles,” but “mass violence in schools and other locations did not happen as in society today.”
He added that there is a “root cause” fueling the drastic shift that has occurred over the years, and that “there is no quick and easy solution” to stop it.
“It’s my belief that the root cause starts with our youth lacking basic skills including respect for authority figures like parents and teachers, the ability to cope with conflict and the ability to handle rejection,” Schmidt stated.
Schmidt added that substance abuse and mental health problems are also a driving factor, but noted that “it is imperative that we raise our children in a manner that instills respect for authority.”
According to Schmidt, every child needs to face “disappointment” at some point in his or her life in order to build character and develop a basic understanding of how to handle adversity.
“While no one wants their child to ever be disappointed or upset, when they are young, they need to face conflict and disappointment and learn to resolve it appropriately under the guidance of adults,” the sheriff wrote.
He continued: “When youth are not taught how to handle difficult situations, they must find their own way to cope, which without guidance may result in unhealthy or even dangerous future behavior.”
Sheriff Schmidt nailed it. Today’s generation is being babied by weak parents who want to be “friends” with their children. They’re coddling them, giving them rewards for everything, spoiling them, and entitling the children to think they can do whatever they want. This isn’t true for all parents, but there’s a staggeringly high number of parents who just don’t know what they’re doing, and they’re mostly part of the reason their kids could turn out to be unsuccessful or probably become liberals.
When children don’t face defeat or challenges, then nothing pushes them to be better. When children don’t have rules at home, then they won’t act right at school. When parents give their kids everything and allow them to run the house, then their kids will probably end up in jail or worse – they’ll become liberal arts majors begging for $15 an hour after they graduate from an expensive college with no real world skills or knowledge. It’s important for parents to be firm, but fair, and allow kids to learn how to be defeated, allow them to fail, and teach them to be resilient adolescents who grow up sharp and ready to go into the real world.
Parents need to be firm, set the rules of the house, and teach their children to grow into responsible adults who make intelligent decisions with their life. When adults do this, then their children often turn out much better. Of course, some kids are still a pain in you know what, but that’s just part of growing up, and they learn from their hardworking parents who remember to be their parent and not their friend.

SECOND Decapitation Suspect Made Horrifying Demand To Cops – ‘Let Me Get My Heads’
A West Virginia woman faces second-degree murder charges after allegedly decapitating a man and leaving his head somewhere different than his body.
A reported second decapitation has taken place this week and this one even more gruesome when you find out what the woman said to the police as they hauled her away in custody. It’s also quite nasty as the authorities learned that the head was in a completely different location than the body.
It all started when a Virginia woman was charged for the decapitation death of a man from West Virginia. She allegedly had removed the head from the body of 29-year-old Bo White, whose body was found in a location different than his head. Authorities were stifled when they found only his body in the home but then found his head out in the middle of the woods.
The woman arrested, 41-year-old Roena Cheryl Mills, has been charged with second-degree murder, but her ghastly demeanor didn’t stop there. It got worse. Her violent act started with the decapitation of the man, displacement of the head, and then she took her blood-covered seld to a random residence. She still had a pocket knife on her and she was covered in blood. Whoever lived at the home offered her a ride, but she rejected the ride and would not leave the property. Perhaps she was in shock or under the influence of a drug, but the reports do not say either way.
When law enforcement arrived, the woman provided a false identity and told police a completely different story about why she had blood on her. She told them someone threw her through a glass door, but couldn’t figure out what to say about who attacked her. Then she let it out. She said the most disturbing thing the police might have heard. She asked police if they can take her back and “let me get my heads” – but at first the police may not have known what she meant. Then they put their heads together and got a head start on figuring it out. The police gave each other a heads up and that’s when they realized that the body of a decapitated man had been found.
CBS News reported more details on the incident of the second decapitation story this week: “According to a criminal complaint, Mills had been in the woods, was covered in blood and had a pocket knife in her pants when she arrived at another residence. The homeowners called authorities after they offered to give her a ride and she refused to leave the property.
The complaint said Mills gave a sheriff’s deputy a false identity and claimed she had been thrown through a glass door but wouldn’t disclose her attacker.
While Mills was being taken for questioning, she told the deputy, “you have to take me back and let me get my heads,” the complaint said.
Mills was wearing a glove on her left hand, and a matching glove was found in White’s bedroom. Both gloves were covered in blood.
Investigators said Mills and White knew each other. Prosecutor George Sitler did not disclose a possible motive and said it’s unclear how White died. An autopsy is pending.
“We do not know if he was killed by the beheading or if he expired before that,” Sitler said.
Mills, who is from Rural Retreat, Virginia, is being held on a $210,000 cash-only bond in the Southern Regional Jail. Jail records don’t indicate whether she has an attorney.
The case goes to the grand jury in June, WVNS reports.”
Prosecutor George Sitler may be scratching his head after saying that they weren’t sure if the man was killed by the beheading or after. It’s thought that usually people pass away when their head is lopped off and thrown into the woods. A jury probably won’t find her innocent based on if the man’s head lived beyond the lifespan of the body. This isn’t Gary’s head from the Santa Clarita Diet.
Later reports still seem unsure of if the woman was using drugs or simply had a bad day and snapped to the point of deliberately beheading someone and apparently losing her mind. There might be a story that comes out where she states it was self-defense, but that sure looks like a lot of self-defense went on.
Some commenters on social media wondered if it was the drug known as bath salts, as that causes people to do absolutely crazy things. Florida is well known for people abusing bath salts and turning into zombie-like humans who attack others and bite into their flesh.
Regardless of her motivation, she is likely to spend a lot of time in jail.
Democrat’s Son Arrested For Threat To Kill Cops Who Get In His Way – Parents Make Ridiculous Excuse!
The parents may have an excuse but not everyone is falling for it. The campaign made a statement and it’s up to the people to decide what to believe.
Some of the leftover anti-cop rhetoric from the Obama era has crept back into the spotlight. This story has nothing to do with the former President himself, but during his tenure in the White House there was often a feeling of anti-cop sensations dripping out of his campaign and numerous supporters. Some of the far left Democrats have a very privileged attitude towards police and believe they are above the law and that cops should be treated horribly. Some people take their anti-cop attitude to another extreme and has since been arrested for his aggressive actions which took place on social media.
His name is Brian Newell and he’s the son of Akron City Councilwoman Tara Samples. She’s running with Dennis Kucinich in the Ohio Democrat gubernatorial race. The reason Brian was locked up in protective custody is due to the nature of what he said on Facebook. His alleged statements included violent anti-cop rhetoric that appeared to be a threat to police officers as his words suggested murdering police.
Newell is 24-years-old and reportedly suffers from mental illness and there are claims that his Facebook posts to kill cops was a psychotic episode. It was stated that his episode possibly came from him not taking his medication, or even perhaps it wasn’t working correctly. Many people might wonder what would have happened if he acted on his words and placed someone’s life in danger, including his own. To be safe, he’s been taken to a hospital in Akron to be treated.
It was Fox 8 who contacted the Kucinich campaign and received a statement:
“Saturday evening, Brian Newell, the 24-year son of Lt. Governor candidate Tara L. Samples was taken into protective custody after he suffered an emotional episode and posted threatening messages on his Facebook page. Tara is hoping to have him admitted to Summa St. Thomas Hospital, which specializes in behavioral health, opiate treatment, and traumatic stress – because Brian, like all people with mental health and addiction issues, needs treatment, not jail time.
Tara speaks openly and publicly about her experiences with her son who since childhood has suffered from a variety of mental health issues, and later in life a drug and opioid addiction after suffering a traumatic brain injury. His mental health issues have led to arrests and criminal charges. He has multiple mental health diagnoses and has been in treatment and rehabilitation facilities many times over the past many years.
It is that very personal, very painful, but deeply loving experience that has made Tara one of the most vocal, passionate, and knowledgeable advocates in the state for changes in the public health system, addiction treatment and rehabilitation programs, mental health services, and criminal justice practices that too often emphasize punitive incarceration rather than treatment and counseling.
Many of us have a family member, or a friend, a coworker, or an acquaintance who suffers from some kind of mental health problems, drug or alcohol addiction, dependence on medications, or behavioral issues. They need our help, our support, our encouragement, and our love.
Unfortunately, since Saturday night, some individuals have taken to social media to post comments about this situation — comments that range from naïve, uninformed, and insensitive to mean-spirited, vulgar, vicious, hateful, threatening, and racist. Instead of understanding and compassion, some people resort to recriminations and enmity.
The Kucinich-Samples campaign takes a compassionate, pragmatic and non-textbook approach to the opioid and mental health crisis in our State because, like the many tens of thousands of families in Ohio, we have had decades of real experience in dealing with it and the system that promotes incarceration over treatment.
Our prayers are with Tara, her son, and her entire family as they try to cope with this sad situation. The role of government should be to help people who need help – like Brian — and that will be the highest priority of a Kucinich-Samples Administration.”
Many people might claim that they are blaming the medication or lack of medication for his anti-cop violent rhetoric posted on Facebook. Others might not believe that his words were a result of the medication, but more so a result of his true character and people are truly worried about what he might do in the future.
Everyone would like for the anti-cop narrative to be diminished and for people to respect the police and the difficult task they face as the media, people, and many others consider the police the enemy. Police often face scrutiny when they are faced with a tough task to shoot someone who is in non-compliance of the law and order. Cops only have a split second to make a decision and they fear for their life at every moment of the job.
The narrative on police needs to improve and people need to support the blue as they protect and serve.
Hillary Supporter Yells ‘F**K Donald Trump’, Urinates On Police Officers! But Cops Got Last LAUGH!
Florida Highway Patrol trooper assisted another trooper, who had placed Murphy in hand restraints
20-year-old Joseph Murphy was arrested near a Disney property for allegedly being way too drunk. But that’s not the worst part!
What he did next is so stupid, that you’d have to think this was his first time drinking and he’s still butt-hurt over the election.
He was arrested for being way too drunk, but that escalated quickly. He was apprehended, cussed out cops, and was on his way to the station. The ride there got really weird. The drunken suspect began banging his head on the partition, tried choking himself like a 50 Shades of Grey video, and was yelling “POLICE BRUTALITY” and also threw a “f*ck Trump” in the mix while hurting himself.
When they arrived at the station, he banged his head on a car window and began peeing. Not so much in his favor, but possibly a little bit funny, he also peed on a cop’s leg.
I bet he felt great when he woke up the next morning with a wrap sheet that included being a peabody.
Either this guy is a crazy maniac liberal, or the weasel-brained fella allegedly imbibed too many adult beverages that took his behavior to a “whole ‘nother level.”
When you’re arrested, for anything, just be nice and don’t beat yourself up in the back of the police cruiser. It’s not worth it. You look crazy. You’re not going to catch a magic break where the courts believe the cops did this to you, especially since there’s probably a video of this floating around somewhere. Not only that, but the forensics investigations squad have seen it all. They can tell when a 20-year-old inflicts his own drunken injury.
Don’t act stupid. Don’t beat yourself up. Don’t pee on cops. If you’re intoxicated anywhere near Disney, then focus on trying to make out with one of the Princess actress when she’s done her shift. Even if you don’t succeed, it’s better than getting yourself arrested for going crazy and peeing on an officer.
More From Click Orlando: A 20-year-old man was arrested on Disney property early New Year’s Day, accused of yelling profanities at law enforcement officers and urinating on a trooper’s leg.
The man, who initially refused to give his name but was later identified as Joseph Murphy, was arrested Sunday near Disney Springs and faces charges of battery on an officer, indecent exposure of sexual organs and resisting an officer without violence.
According to an Orange County charging affidavit, a Florida Highway Patrol trooper assisted another trooper, who had placed Murphy in hand restraints on a sidewalk at Buena Vista Drive.
The first trooper said he was arresting Murphy for disorderly intoxication, the report stated. The second trooper said Murphy reeked of alcohol.
Murphy was placed in the trooper’s patrol cruiser, where he began banging his head against a partition and tried to choke himself, the report said. Murphy was yelling “police brutality” as he kept banging his head, the affidavit said.
Murphy then began yelling obscenities, including “(expletive) Donald Trump,” the report stated.
At the Orange County Jail, Murphy banged his head against a car window and began urinating on the floor, officials said. He then turned around and urinated on one of the trooper’s pants, leaving a large wet spot on his uniform, officials said.
