    This is exactly why we don't allow gay Scout Leaders.

    It's the Menendez brothers badge...not the nicest looking one you can get, unfortunately.

    So is the point that a kid snapped and killed his family and that this is an alarming trend amongst today's youth or the 8 word sentence that mentioned the fact he was close to being awarded his Eagle Scout?

    Typical attention whore media ploy by posting an attention grabbing headline.

    I doubt Boy Scouts was the facotr in him killing his family.

    true. if his parents had the foresight of this day, maybe they would have chosen to abort him.

    Are 45th trimester abortions legal in Maryland? hindsight is 20/20, unless you are dead. I doubt you can see much at that point.

    I've told this story before but a dude in my high school woke up early one morning, murdered his whole family then caught the bus to school. He was 15 at the time, tried as an adult. He's been taking it from a celly for 20 years now and rightfully so will not see life outside of prison rape unless he lives past 105 years.

    As long as they keep this guy in jail that will keep everyone safe but I doubt he is mentally healthy. Using a prison for the mentally ill is a problem in the US. For those that are mentally ill and commit less heinous crimes a jail isn't the right tool for the job.

    what country do you think is the model, or at least closer to an optimal solution?
    do you suggest one of VB's double-enders?

    He went through a psychological examination before they tried him as an adult, it wasn't like it was texas and a mob just strung him up.

    How could a sane person decide one day to kill his whole family?

    As far as mental health goes, addressing the problem would include universal healthcare and public awareness. Acknowledging mental care as an important part of regular healthcare - mentally ill people get sick more often.

    Improving our education system would help both mental health and economic health rather than the current programs which seem to leave our nation's children behind the rest of the developed world.

    Our current mental health problems are comparable to our nation's worst health problem - cardiovascular disease.

    The courts have often declared people sane when the accused are mentally ill. The mentally retarded for example. Law has changed to reflect this:

    http://www.cnn.com/2002/LAW/06/20/scotus.executions/

    Our current health system for the most part ignores the mentally ill until they commit crimes and we throw them jail instead of treatment. There is the misconception that is cheaper until the problem gets worse and they cause more problems for society when they get out of jail again and again.

    Just remember kids, when sodomising your parents the optimal length for a double ender is 18 inches. I'd also suggest some kind of benzodiazapine cocktail for the relaxation of the sphincter muscle.
    I can't believe they don't teach these things in scout camp anymore, what use are all those f*cken knots if you don't know what to do after they're bound and gagged.

    So the problem was he didn't warn his family?

    Jim Morrison warned his father.

    "Father?"

    "Yes, son?"

    "I'm going to kill you."

    I think this warning made it all right.
