Are the Crumbley’s Guilty

Manslaughter – Oxford High School Shooting (Detroit, Michigan)

First and foremost:

My condolences to the families who lost children. There is nothing that I can say to ease your pain ….. I’m so sorry for your loss.

Let’s begin.

Right from the start, I’d like to make one thing perfectly clear. Guns do not kill. People do. Saying guns kill is like saying automobiles kill. If you’re too dense to comprehend this fact, you aren’t going to be able to grasp the concepts of this post.

Obviously, it’s too early to make a guilty or innocent judgment, the arraignment was just this morning, and the trial has yet to occur. However, at some point in the future, we’ll know the answer. And then what? Live Die Repeat. Did we forget Columbine and Parkland?* Here it is, happening again.

It’s too early to decide guilt or innocence, but based on what we know today, it’s not too early to express opinions.

In broad strokes, this is what we know:

  • Ethan Crumbley is a psychologically disturbed teenager who is accused of committing a heinous adult crime. His mental condition was no secret: his parents knew, the school administration knew, the student body knew, and Ethan himself, knew.
  • Ethan’s father, James, purchased an early Christmas present for Ethan: the gun used in the Oxford School shooting.
  • Ethan’s mother, Jennifer, took him target shooting and had prior knowledge of Ethan’s desire to obtain more ammunition for his gun.

My RBDBE question of the day is this. Why would parents of a child like Ethan ever buy him a gun and then, do everything in their power to make him proficient at using it?

Let’s go back to my guns and cars analogy. Maybe your child has a congenital heart condition, or epilepsy, or is legally blind, or for some other reason, simply can’t operate a motor vehicle safely. The one thing you wouldn’t do is buy your kid a car for Christmas.

That said. Here comes the most disturbing part of my RBDBE.

Why did Ethan’s parents buy him a gun when they knew he was mentally unstable? Why would they train him to use it? Why would they facilitate his purchase of ammunition? The only thing that makes sense to me is Manslaughter by Proxy.

What do I mean by that? If James and Jennifer want to commit a crime, but insulate themselves from the consequences, what better way than to get a kid to do it? It’s like hiring an assassin to kill your ex-husband because you can’t, or won’t, pull the trigger yourself. Plus, minor children have added protections under the law.

Why would James and Jennifer want their kid to shoot up a High School and kill innocent children? I have no earthly clue. But look at what they did, and what they didn’t do.

Mark my words. There’s something sinister here.

PS – I firmly believe that children can be taught to use firearms correctly. Just like children are capable of learning to drive, they’re also capable of learning to shoot. But that’s not true of all children and it’s the parent’s job to figure it out. Contrast the Crumbley’s to the Rittenhouse’s. It really is that simple: Ethan Crumbley … bad, Kyle Rittenhouse … good. My hope is that the American justice system works again.

* Also, I do think the school administrators were negligent and culpable. Should there be lawsuits? Absolutely. But we’re talking second and third lines of defenses here. The first line of defense rests with the parents. James and Jennifer Crumbley needed to be arrested, charged, and now prosecuted.

Thank the Lord

Justice is served and served well

for Kyle Rittenhouse and his family

A big part of that is attributed to the courage of the jurors. Their collective determination not to be intimidated by domestic terrorist groups and liberal media sycophants is the reason our system works. Also, kudos to Circuit Judge Bruce Schroeder for his professionalism. Without him, a fair trial would’ve been impossible.

It’s the subject for a future post but the blatant violation of Kyle Rittenhouse’s civil rights by Kenosha County Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger,* is just the beginning of what I think should be a long list of actionable lawsuits (Biden is in there too).

But now we have a bigger problem. The true Domestic Terrorists (a.k.a. BLM, Antifa, CNN, MSNBC, and Joy Behar) didn’t get the decision they wanted so now they have to riot. They didn’t just threaten to, they promised.

The problem is out of control and we have to put an end to it now. Kyle Rittenhouse can’t be the only one to stand up for average Joes and Janes. Kyle is the example, not the rule. We—the average, have to pick up the charge and stand for what’s right.

It’s worth every minute, so please watch this video.

Why is it that when conservatives protest, it’s a riot? When progressives riot, it’s a protest?

For the left, ends always justify the means. When it comes to breaking the law, destroying businesses, and invading neighborhoods: it’s not wrong … it’s just what the left does. They know that their ideology is flawed, so they need to force it.

It’s Modus Operandi (their standard operating procedure) to go out in the streets and foment chaos while armed with guns, Molotov cocktails, bricks, bottles, and now—skateboards. They have no concern for who they injure or kill because there aren’t any repercussions; no arrest, no charges brought by district attorneys like Tom Binger, no trial, and no jail time.

Did you see it in the video? Gaige Grosskreutz points a loaded gun at Kyle Rittenhouse. Why isn’t he being charged?

To sum it up as only a lowly Bus Driver can:

At this time of the year (especially), it’s important to recognize a simple truth. God created the United States of America and gave it to each and every American; a genuine and unique gift that comes with the responsibility to preserve and protect it for all, and for all time. If we lose track of this, God’s gift can be taken away.

*FYI, Thomas Binger is the one who brandished an AR-15 in the courtroom. Then, in an absolute demonstration of pure genius (lack thereof), pointed it at the jury with his finger on the trigger. Did he take his cues from Alec Baldwin?
