Hi. I went to google and READ THE WHOLE STORY, in Wikipedia (and went elsewhere to verify what I had just read).
No wonder they didn't go into detail about what he was doing there. This guy left 4 suicide notes and one of them said that 20 years ago he molested two family members (who have since said "this did not happen", and he also wrote "I'm getting the same urge), and because of what they found in his truck, (I'm not going into details here), the guy was SEVERELY disturbed.
The REAL story is all over the internet and documented in written statements by the police.
The guy had demons, no doubt about it. But to walk into a school and shoot 10 or so girls (because his baby died???), No, I don't think so. The Lifetime movie did NOT give all the facts. But then again, why should they?
They simply presented a story, and the ramifications of what happened AFTER the murders.
It's a true testament to the forgiving nature of the Amish.
Because of this movie, I went to google, and found links to the origin of the Amish. Very interesting stuff.
I don't get the shunning thing.
To me, if you practice forgiveness, why on earth would you stop your wife from contact with her sister and nieces and nephews.
That is beyond my comprehension.
