Are shooters high on recreational, prescription, or illegal drugs when they shoot intended or random victims? And if so, is this information being intentionally keep secret or is impossible to determine?
The Chicago Tribune article titled: A 12-year-old boy coming back to live in Chicago was shot while out with his dad to pick up school supplies. ‘Kids can’t do anything.’
Another article titled: Psychiatric Drugs and Mass Shootings, contained this following statement:
“What is too often absent in these discussions, however, is a scientific explanation as to how psychoactive drugs can cause or influence people to harm themselves and others.”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient wisdom proverb to a question, is this information being withheld or, secreted intentionally, or is impossible to determine. Or is there another reason which can be correlated to acts involving shootings violence?
What’s My Point?
It is a misnomer to describe anyone not in harm’s way who shoots someone to be described as being wise (sound judgement) or moral (right human conduct).
It has been said that reported gang members may sometimes engage in an ignoble (characterized by baseness, lowness, or meanness) acts to shoot or beat a random victim to prove themselves to be initiated into a gang.
Psychiatric drugs have been identified and reported as a reason for mass shootings. Should this information be made public by news media to warn society.
And if the warnings are ignored, should anyone who ignores the information be considered a fool (person lacking judgement) or has a drug addiction (use of a drug without medical justification) or also defined as a substance abuse disorder)?
My point is to question why we never seem to hear anything about an arrested shooter was high on drugs when they shoot a victim?
In My Opinion
We know many shootings are related to gangs.
We know teaching wisdom, love, and religious morals of the Bible may help reduce violence.
ff we know there is a correlation to these proven facts and we ignore teaching youth Biblical proverbial wisdom and morality, could it be considered folly (lack of good sense,) of a society (: a community, nation, or broad grouping of people having common traditions, institutions, and collective activities and interests)?

Do you suspect drugs are involved in the shootings and violence being reported in the news?
Would you agree if drugs are the major factor to ignoble acts of shooters and violence, should this be reported in the news to help inform, warn, or wise up members of a society to do something about the problem.
Would it help any Nation to teach wisdom to enlighten youth how use of recreational drugs can cause them to engage in folly and darken their paths in life according to this following verses?
The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining brighter and brighter until midday. But the way of the wicked is like the darkest gloom; they do not know what makes them stumble..(Proverb 4:18,19)
Is there a correlation of something lacking in what is being taught in public schools in high crime areas and experiencing shooting and violence? If so, would school choice or school vouchers perhaps serve to reduce folly and help to instill more wisdom, love, and morality or the other virtues described in the following statement?
“Black parents love charter schools and voucher-supported private school vouchers because they teach values, self-respect, and hope. But no, if this option for poor or lower-~income parents has more Democrat opposition than ever.”
Should the wording in the Chicago Tribune article be amended to read
From – “Kids can’t do nothing.”
To – We as a Nation Society “can’t do nothing” because we lack the path of wisdom? (sound judgement)
