    IMHO, when the born drug addicted babies grow up and hit the school systems and streets we haven't seen anywhere near the violence these kids will bring. Think I'm wrong then I suggest asking the Dr's and nurses at the hospitals dealing with these kids what mental disabilities are already on display. Then ask the school teachers who are having to cope with the ones in the system already.

    Makes one wonder if the current crop of crazies shooting things up had mothers who were was doing drugs while they were still in the womb.

    Interesting theory. There is definitely something wrong with this guy. Police in Springfield, Missouri, arrested a man on Thursday afternoon after he walked into a Walmart, armed with a rifle and wearing body armor. The man, identified as 20-year-old Dmitriy Andreychenko, was arrested for making a terrorist threat, Springfield Police confirmed Friday.

    Of course, that is also true of Santino William Legan, 19, who opened fire at the popular food festival in Gilroy on the evening of July 28, killing three people and wounding 13.

    And Patrick W. Crusius, 21, who is white, also divulged to the police that he had targeted Mexicans in El Paso, killing 22 people and injuring 24 others.

    And Conner Betts, 24, the Dayton shooter who killed nine people and injured 27. Obessed with mass shootings, Betts was a copycat killer, following in the steps of Crusius and Legan.

    All three were inspired by our President's malicious rhetoric. At a political rally in El Paso in February, Trump was describing immigrants when he claimed there were "4,000 immigrant murderers swept up by ICE in the previous two years." The White House could not provide any evidence that was true. Trump made it up.

    “Murders, murders, murders. Killings. Murders,” Trump said during that speech, prompting chants of “build the wall” from the crowd in Texas."

    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/...migrants-murders-killings-texas-a9044526.html

    Describing white supremacists who had invaded Charlottesville for a rally, Trump said, “You also had some very fine people on both sides.”

    So, what you are saying could be true, but our President is the inspiration for young, angry, white male killers.

    There are various problems that can result from women using different kinds of drugs (illegal, proscribed or legal) during pregnancy but it isn’t a new issue in any way and you’ve not established any kind of increasing problem (nor even a time scale, given you jump between predicting the future, talking about current children and referring to recent shooters, who are generally in their 20s or 30s).

    That seems like an unfair accusation against a number of identified individuals without any specific justification. I think we should be more careful with such random speculation and remember we’re talking about real people, some of whom were victims of the criminals themselves.

    You don't know this. I blame a lot of people and a lot of different things. In spite of their denials, I put primary blame on violent video games and movies. They desensitize and glorify such acts. Similar methods are used to train swat teams.

    I blame the media. When we have such an event, the news coverage becomes all consuming. The nuts look at this and they want to be part of it. A second bi-product of this news coverage is that it has put this nation in a perpetual state of fear. A car backfires or someone drops a chair and they panic. The chances of actually being killed or wounded by one of these events is less than one in a half million per year.

    I blame lack of parenthood. Too many parents, especially fathers, are absent and they grow up with little or no guidance.

    I don't know that drugs are involved, but I do know that they are used more frequently than when I grew up and they result in erratic behavior.

    What Trump does pales in comparison to the above. Our people, especially the young, are bombarded with all this. The young people tend to pay less attention to politicians than these other factors.
