Police: Amish School Gunman Said He Molested Relatives

Fair use excerpt WBAY TV report:
Police say none of the girls at the Amish school was sexually abused by gunman Charles Roberts, who claims to have molested two young relatives 20 years ago.

That's what Roberts told his wife when he called her from the rural Pennsylvania school just before he opened fire, killing five children plus himself.

The state police commissioner says Roberts wrote in his suicide note that he was dreaming of molesting again. As for the relatives involved, police still haven't tracked everyone down but they say Roberts's wife and parents know nothing about any past molestation.

The wife also told investigators Roberts was still upset about a premature daughter who died soon after birth nine years ago.

Police say the killings apparently have nothing to do with the Amish. They believe Roberts considered the one-room school house an easy target.


You allow yourself to kill kids because you feel guilty and depressed and might molest again?

Who knew?

BTW, can we have some decent level of gun control? Why, because though, I guess with a knife the 'gunman' could have killed the girls, but it would have taken longer he couldn't have made the swat team take the delays they need to employ when confronting a suspect with an arsenal of guns if all he had was knives or even an ax.

WP has some pretty disgusting details showing that Roberts intended to molest the girls before killing them.

We need better gun control now!
