    The environment you grow up in and events you experience are big influences on shaping you as a person. It’s really unfortunate that he didn’t get the help he needed, and that it led to something major like this. That’s why we need to always make sure to reach out to anyone that we feel like might be in a tough situation. We, ourselves, may not be able to do much but there is people out there who can help.

    i agree that a persons childhood contributes to the way a person acts for the rest of their lives. how ever, i wouldnt say that he doesnt deserve his consequences because he did infact cause the crime. he is his own person and he cant blame his actions on the past.

    You made a good point. Parenting is very important. He definitely needed help but obviously it’s too late. He made his decision, and he deserves do face the consequences for it.

    I think that if Dylan would have been paid more attention too, and received the help he needed he wouldn’t be in the position that he is in now. Its obvious that the drugs and alcohol could have had a lot to do with her choice to kill these nine innocent people. But i also think if as a child his parents taught him right from wrong he wouldn’t have done what he did. I personally do not agree with the death penalty. I do think that he should be put in jail for life for what he did though.
