A killing that would seem unlikely to be condemned by pro-smoking ban groupsStory link here: Man Kills 5, Then Himself in Mo. Spree
Kim Drew, a neighbor whose 13-year-old son was a friend of the slain children, described the shooter as a controlling man who wanted things done his way.
"He didn't want her to smoke," Drew said. "He ran things and he was bossy. That much I did see."
Pro-smoking ban groups are no less controlling and manipulative than this shooter, forcing their uninformed will upon everyone via government mandate.
I can't help but wonder what role the media and smoking ban activists' exaggerations and lies may have played in inciting this man's need to control his former girlfriend and ultimately his outburst of violence.
