The above article is very sad. Just click on the link to read the story. It's sad that people died, yes. But to me what is more sad is how this father took no ownership in his own obvious failed parenting. He showed a complete lack of love for the kid, which is most likely how the kid turned out the way he did. And a complete lack of responsibility for his failed role as a father. I can almost guarantee you he didn't love and nurture this kid while he was growing up. I'm sure he didn't teach him Biblical values and morals. When parents fail to train and love their kids correctly you get stuff like this.
I actually feel sorry for the kid, just as much as I feel for his victims. Failed parenting is a huge problem.
