Virginia – Arlington – Full time care taker of mother shoots her, the doctor, and himself.

Care of the elderly and respect for ones elders are synonymous.  The old progressives in the liberal democratic party always considered themselves anti establishment.  This meant that they railed against all the old farts in government.  They used to say that one “can’t trust anyone over the age of 30,” but then it became 40, and 50 and now 60.  Do you wonder why the age kept growing?  Maybe it’s because the ones saying it kept getting older.  So, now they are the establishment.  They, however, don’t see that.  They are now raging against the “youth.” Aren’t they fond of calling all those who create chaos “youth?”  All those blacks or Muslims or whoever, except whites, that they have to be PC about and can’t, actually, call them out, they call them YOUTHS.  These same progressives are the ones that believe that everyone has an expiration date whenever they become a burden.  They don’t value life, because they grew up coddled and told that “me” was the most important person.  The people who see only themselves as valuable people become depressed. Those are the people that think that taking care of others is a chore.  They don’t see it as a privilege. They only see themselves.    When one goes through life looking only at oneself, one doesn’t see the beauty in life, because they are always focused on themselves.  When g-d chooses that you should keep watch over another and be that persons life line, g-d is giving you a privilege and a moment to show YOUR greatness through the care of someone else.  G-d then opens your world and doesn’t narrow it.  The world becomes better through ones service to others.  That’s a thing that the ME generation NEVER understood.  Sad.  Sad and EVIL.

The progressives, liberals, communists and all those still in the ME mode will argue that the issue is guns.  Yet, the statistics don’t add up and the argument is illogical.  As if a gun will walk up to someone and pull he trigger.  Guns protect the LEGITIMATE people from the ILLEGITIMATE people who acquire guns regardless of any LAWS.

The issue here should be one of HEALTH and CARE.  We will all get old.  We, MOST, will become a “burden” and a “blessing.”  Societies were formed out of the need for many people to come together, because individually we are able to do less than what we can do when we are working together and NO, we don’t have to be ALL working for the SAME common goal.  In a society, that is large we can have many goals and it is NOT beneficial to have EVERYONE working for the SAME goal, because the products produced should be sufficiently different to bring variety and harmony to the people.  This can’t be dictated, although the progressives would have you believe so.  Large organizations move smoothly because of independent decisions being made swiftly due to immediately recognized needs, which the liberals call self centered but is really the oil in a well run machine.

The communists devalues life, so eugenics is seen as a tool and not an evil enterprise.

Arlington man kills mother and self in standoff at Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore

Baltimore police say a man became distraught as a doctor briefed on his mother's condition at Johns Hopkins Hospital and shot the doctor, then shot and killed his mother and himself in her hospital room. (Sept. 16)

An Arlington County man who for years had devoted his life to caring for his elderly mother apparently lost control Thursday morning when he learned news about her medical condition. He pulled a gun from his waistband and shot a Johns Hopkins Hospital doctor in the chest before barricading himself in his mother’s eighth-floor hospital room.

After a two-hour standoff, Baltimore police found Paul “Warren” Pardus, 50, dead on the hospital room floor and his mother, Jean Davis, dead in her bed. Police think Pardus killed his mother before turning a semiautomatic handgun on himself, a case authorities are treating as a murder-suicide.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III said Thursday that Pardus was getting a briefing about his mother’s health at 11:11 a.m. in the sprawling hospital’s Nelson Building when he “became emotionally distraught and reacted and was overwhelmed by the news of his mother’s condition.”

Pardus then pulled a gun out of his waistband and shot the doctor once in the lower chest. The doctor collapsed just outside Room 873, where Davis was confined to a bed, and Pardus ran into the room with his gun raised. SWAT team members found Pardus and his mother dead about 1:30 p.m.

The wounded doctor underwent surgery at Johns Hopkins on Thursday and was expected to survive, police said.

The midday shooting shocked the Johns Hopkins community, home to one of the nation’s premier hospitals, and caused police and hospital officials to shut down parts of the Nelson Building while warning the rest of the campus of a gunman on the property.

The Johns Hopkins medical system employs more than 30,000 people and has more than 1,000 beds and 1,700 full-time doctors.

Pardus — who legally changed his name from Warren Leo Davis in 1989, according to court records — had a concealed-weapons permit in Virginia. Pardus was an employee of Diamond Transportation, a subcontractor for MV Transportation, which provides drivers for the MetroAccess program. MetroAccess transports disabled people in the Washington area.

A spokeswoman for California-based MV said Thursday that Pardus has been on leave since June 20.

Several people who live near Pardus’s home on South Kenmore Street, just off of Glebe Road, in Arlington said he had barely been in the neighborhood for the past six months because of his mother’s hospitalization. They said Pardus essentially lived with his mother at Johns Hopkins and stopped by their home infrequently to get a bag of clothes or other belongings.

“He was a very nice man,” said Teresa Green, a next-door neighbor who said she often saw Pardus caring for his mother, who lived with him full-time for at least the past five years. “He was the only one there for her. It was like a 24-hour job for him.”

Green said Pardus largely kept to himself, but they would talk occasionally when he was cutting his grass or working on his car.

“I told her what a wonderful son she had,” Green said. “He kept her neat. He kept her clean. He looked after her.”

Frank Duncan, 50, regularly spoke with Davis as he walked through the neighborhood. He said he knew she was ill but didn’t know how serious it was. Duncan said Pardus and his mother rarely had any visitors at their three-bedroom home, but he described both as nice people.

“He was quiet, like he always had a lot on his mind,” Duncan said.

Relatives of Pardus and Davis could not be reached for comment Thursday night.
