    Default CBS News interviews the father of the Colorado Springs shooter. OMG.

    That shooting earlier this week at a gay bar in Colorado Springs, where a guy donned body armor, took his AR and a pistol, and killed 5 while wounding others?

    Yeah. CBS News found the perp's father. When informed that his son had gone to a gay bar and opened fire, he was hugely concerned that his son could maybe be gay, and was relieved to hear that wasn't true. Because (as he tells the interviewer ... as the camera rolls) he's a Mormon, and a Conservative Republican voter. "And "we don't do gay."

    It seems that the father does do methamphetamine though, and seems to be on it during the interview. He'd been on (Season 6, episode 8) of the reality TV show "Intervention" in an attempt to deal with it. And the father's also got a history as a porn movie actor. Twitter is kind enough to give the names of two of the films he's done, but I'd rather not be banned here, so ...

    Go to the twitter address above, and on the thread you'll find a few clips showing portions of the interview. There's more there that's odious, like the father commenting how he'd raised his son to get violent early in a conflict, to be most effective. Etc.

    Makes me feel physically ill.

    I have no words! (At least no words that wouldn’t get me banned for life)
    Stay calm, be brave....wait for the signs. Possibly precariously prevaricating.

    I am reminded of a comment on a Naval officer's annual assessment by his commanding officer.

    Anyone else betting the shooter had issues with his own sexual identity?

    Lol, you're probably right. We have to figure out how we stop producing these people as a society. By that I mean, we need to figure out how to educate far better than we do.
    In the US this perverted idea of “blood and soil” over “constitutional principles” is the most radical and anti-democratic and anti-Conservative idea I have heard in my lifetime.

    Bullies believe bullying is good, and work hard at making sure their kids grow up to be bullies.
    A society predicated on the assumption that everyone in it should want to get rich is not well situated to become either ethical or imaginative.

    The suspected shooter's name was changed more than six years ago as a teenager, after filing a legal petition in Texas seeking to “protect himself” from a father with a criminal history including domestic violence against Aldrich’s mother.

    Defense attorneys said late Tuesday that the suspect is nonbinary and in court filings referred to the suspect as “Mx. Aldrich.” The attorneys’ footnotes assert that Aldrich is nonbinary and uses they/them pronouns.
