Sante Fe Shooter Bullied? A Father's Excuse

The danger of firearms in the hands of the irresponsible.

After last Friday's high school killings perpetrated by a 17-year-old student, I like most wondered how did such a young person get his hands on a .38 revolver and a shotgun. We wondered but really deep down we knew: a parent.

Do you recall the first victim of the Connecticut school shooting was actually the shooters mother in their home? The shooter's mother was an avid firearm enthusiast and had provided firearm trying for her son. 


The state of humanism where it all begins, where it is all shaped and where it is the earliest stages of learning.  It goes without saying, it is the state of humans where life actually gets its first shot of failure (for some young people). All parents are not good parents. 

It took only a few hours for reports regarding the shooters father to come forth.  On Monday, Antonios Pagourtzis told the Wall Street Journal (in a phone interview) his son probably reacted to the environment at the school as a catalyst to his mass murder.  
He said his son was a “good boy” and had been “mistreated at school.”  He went on to say, " (his son) Dimitrios was bullied and “I believe that’s what was behind” the shooting.
Question, is it really possible a "good boy" would ear this to school every day.  Even if his mission was to avoid appearing plump, how about the badges.

Dimitrios Pagourtzis Facebook page
Bullied? A recent piece via Heavy dot com offers five facts about the shooter. One item includes information the father has at least one case of public support from Right-wing demagogue and NRA advertisement sponsors Dana Loesch.

ABC News ran a segment (view at the 2:18-minute mark) which shed more revealing light on the shooters background, inclinations and facts about the shooting. 

The most critical question going forward relates to the prospect the father may be charged as an accessory to murder. ABC News affiliate  WFAA broadcast a segment related to possible charges. The short answer is authorities are investing the matter. Despite legal verification of the unlawful nature of facilitating a weapon for a purse under 18, the decision hasn't been made regarding charges.

The father should be charged, in my opinion.
