Michael McLendon and Tim Kretschmer Are Cowardly Killers Who Exemplify Idiocracy

Michael McLendon, 28, is an example of what ails this world. "Idiocracy." While this word is not recognized by Websters, it was the title of a movie worth watching. Tuesday, Michael McLendon went on a shooting rampage that killed 10 people. He started by killing his mother in his hometown of Kinston, Alabama. Then he brought his reign of terror to Samson and then Geneva. To make matters worse, McLendon was once a police officer in Samson, Alabama. The senseless killing ended at the Reliable Metal Products plant in Geneva. McLendon engaged in a shoot out with police and then culminated in him killing himself. Fatalities are believed to be as follows:
James Alford White, 55
Tracy Michelle Wise, 34
Dean James Wise, 15
Corrine Gracy Myers, 18 months
Andrea D. Myers, 31
Virginia E. White, 74
James Irvin Starling, 24
Sonja Smith, 43
Bruce Wilson Malloy, 51
Lisa White McLendon (his mom), 52
CNN's Brooke Baldwin

Similar idiocracy occurred in Germany. There, Tim Kretschmer, 17, began shooting people at his former school in Winnenden. Eight female students, three female teachers and one male student were shot to death. This has to be just another in a long line of senseless cowardly killings that have become way to common.

Cowards is right.

How much courage does it take to shoot unarmed women and children? There is no punishment in the world for such people that could possibly sink as low as their cowardness. Their names should not even be mentioned in the press or in public. Instead of their warped sense of glorification, let their names forever be silent on the lips of mankind.

Is this the only way they can become famous? If fame is what they seek, they are sadly misguided.
