How could they not know?

January 12, 2011

Jared Loughner’s parents had to know that something was seriously wrong with him.  Even just looking at his old photos and comparing them to his mug shot, it is obvious that he was deteriorating mentally.  And now we learn that he had a confrontation with his father the morning of his murderous attack.  Loughner took a black bag out of a family car and took off running into the desert after his father confronted him.

 

If his father was concerned enough about his behavior to challenge him regarding the black bag and to chase him into the desert, why didn’t he call police?  If he had, the wildlife officer who stopped him for a traffic offense would have received a warning when running his license number.  His car might have been searched and the gun might have been found.

 

Why didn’t his parents search his room?  I don’t understand at all.  I don’t care if your child is 22 years old.  If he is living in your house and behaving erratically, search his room.  Read his papers.  Monitor his computer.  Hell, Google his name.  Watch his Youtube videos.  Then HAVE HIM COMMITTED.
