Based upon past historical data: 3,287+ UNBORN BABY MURDERS have occurred in the last 24 hours in the United States. See my post “BABY HOLOCAUST” posted January 22, 2008.

Recently, I’ve been involved in a problem one of my clients has with Farmers Insurance Group. My previous posts in relation to this problem were:

I will not be continuing my Creationism posts today. I do plan to return to them soon.

Then, I plan to answer the response about Iraq. I am sorry for the change in plans. Plans, in reality, often are altered for one reason or another. “The best laid plans … often go astray.” Thank you for your understanding and patience.

How many unborn toddlers were murdered today because of the humanistic, paganish, barbaric decisions of the United States Supreme Court?

Late last week our nation had another in a series of mass murders on a university campus. I could discuss the correlation between the murders and our society’s propensity to glorify violence and mayhem. I pointed out on my last post that two major businesses were pushing gangster-violence movies for the weekly sale to correspond with Presidents’ Day. However, that is not the purpose of these posts.

Tonight, I am posting a portion of a story printed Sunday, February 17, 2008 in the Peoria Journal Star. Tomorrow, I plan to post a portion of the continuing story that was published on February 18, 2008. If all goes according to plan, I will begin commenting on the two stories the following post. I think it is important to have posted both stories before any comments.

Tonight’s posting of a portion of the story published on February 17, 2008:

“Investigators dig to uncover NIU gunman’s motive (sub-headline has been omitted—my addition) by Ashley M. Heher and Caryn Rousseau of The Associated Press

DeKalb—Steven Kazmierczak had the look of a boyish graduate student—except for the disturbing tattoos that covered his arms.

Professors and students knew him as a bright, helpful scholar, but his past included a stint in a mental health center.

Many saw him as happy and stable, but he had developed a recent interest in guns and was involved in a troubled—possibly abusive—on-again, off-again relationship.” (Peoria Journal Star, February 17, 2008, page A1—all of the story printed on the front page was quoted.)

“While searching for Kazmierczak’s motive, authorities questioned family and friends and tried to determine whether he had recently broken up with his longtime girlfriend.

One person who knew the couple, who spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity, said the couple’s relationship was on-again, off-again and ‘really rocky.’ Kazmierczak was controlling, she said.

‘He was abusive, had a temper,’ she said. ‘He didn’t actually hit her, he would push her around.’

The 27-year-old Kazmierczak also had a history of mental illness and had become erratic in the past two weeks after he stopped taking his medication, said university Police Chief Donald Grady.

A former employee at a Chicago psychiatric treatment center said Kazmierczak had been placed there after high school by his parents. He used to cut himself and had resisted taking his medications, she said.

Kazmierczak spent more than a year at the Thresholds-Mary Hill House in the late 1990’s, former house manager Louise Gbadamashi told The Associated Press. His parents placed him there because he had become ‘unruly’ at home, she said.

Gbadamashi couldn’t remember any instances of him being violent, she said.

‘He never wanted to identify with being mentally ill,’ she said. ‘That was part of the problem.’” (Peoria Journal Star, February 17, 2008, page A12)

Nine paragraphs after the above paragraph and the third to the last paragraph of the article contained this information:

“Jim Thomas, an emeritus professor of sociology and criminology at NIU who taught Kazmierczak, insisted there was no indication of trouble between Kazmierczak and his girlfriend.” (Peoria Journal Star, February 17, 2008, page A12)
