intelligence does. Down with all these quiet bright children.
believe that we have heart trouble in America. I believe that because we don't teach values and character issues, you can get a very fine education in America, but it just creates clever devils. The last couple of shootings, the one we had in Aurora, which is not far from my house, and this one, and even Columbine, all of those were very intelligent young men and it creates an element of evil in these young men.
There's nothing like compassion, mercy, nothing that would draw them back from going over the edge like that. It's really a danger to have such highly educated, intelligent people being able to get the equipment and the weapons that they want, to carry out their mass murders.
We have to start with the family - families teaching their children about how precious life is. Kids don't understand the permanent consequences from violence. Real violence has real consequences.
