DAVID DRAIMAN TWITTER RANT
2012-07-23 by Philip Whitehead | 120 Comments

DISTURBED FRONTMAN DAVID DRAIMAN HAS TAKEN TO TWITTER TO CRITICISE PARENTS WHO TOOK YOUNG CHILDREN TO THE MIDNIGHT SCREENING OF "THE DARK KNIGHT RISES" IN DENVER, COLORADO, WHICH SAW 12 PEOPLE KILLED AND OTHERS INJURED.

ON TWITTER HE POSTED: "ALL YOU PARENTS OUT THERE THAT THINK ITS OK TO TAKE YOUR INFANTS OUT ON THE TOWN WITH YOU, TO A MOVIE THEATER OR OTHERWISE, DO THE WORLD A FAVOR. GIVE YOUR CHILDREN UP FOR ADOPTION TO PARENTS WHO KNOW WHAT IS IS TO BE A RESPONSIBLE PARENT, AND SACRIFICE ON BEHALF OF THEIR CHILDREN. GET A DAMN BABYSITTER." FULL TWEET: http://www.twitlonger.com/show/iesq2g

AFTER RECEIVING A NUMBER OF NEGATIVE REPLIES, HE RESPONDED BY SAYING HE HAS NOTHING BUT THE DEEPEST CONDOLENCES FOR THE VICTIMS BUT STANDS BY HIS PREVIOUS REMARKS: "HOWEVER, SEPARATE FROM THE CATASTROPHIC EVENT IS THE NOTION THAT SOMEHOW IT IS ALRIGHT TO TAKE A 3 MONTH OLD INFANT (NOT A 6 YEAR OLD CHILD, ALTHOUGH THAT IS STILL QUESTIONABLE) TO A SHOWING OF ANY MOVIE IS PREPOSTEROUS. FORGET THE FACT THAT A 3 MONTH OLD SHOULD BE SAFE IN BED AT MIDNIGHT, FORGET THE FACT THIER FRAGILE IMMUNE SYSTEMS SHOULDNT BE SUBJECTED TO THE BACTERIAL PETRI DISH THAT IS A MOVIE THEATRE. THE PRIMARY ISSUE IS THE EFFECT THAT MOVIE THEATRE SOUND OFTEN AT DANGEROUS LEVELS OF DB, CAN DO PERMANENT DAMAGE TO A 3 MONTH OLD INFANT'S STILL DEVELOPING HEARING."

"IT IS AND WILL REMAIN MY OPINION THAT THOSE WHO WOULD SUBJECT A 3 MONTH OLD CHILD TO IT ARE NOT ONLY IRRESPONSIBLE, SHITTY PARENTS, BUT THEY SHOULD ALSO BE CHARGED WITH CHILD ENDAGERMENT"

It would depend on why it was rated PG-13 if my 6 year old kid could go, but seeing how I don't have a kid, I also don't look at the reasons why a movie has been given a certain rating.

PG-13 isn't a requirement like R is, just a suggestion
It depends on the theater, some have like no under 7 year olds for PG-13 movies and shit
I find it really odd that movies with violence without consequences (no blood, hero never gets shot while mowing down hundreds) get rated PG-13, but movies with violence with consequences (war movies and realistic shit where heroes die due to violence) get an R, like how ass backwards is that

PARENTS WITH AN INFANT/TODDLER DESERVE THE RIGHT TO MOVE ON WITH THEIR LIVES OTHERWISE YOU BECOME MISERABLE SACKS OF SHIT. AN INFANT GETTING SICK IS HOW IT DEVELOPS IT'S IMMUNE SYSTEM. HE REALLY SHOULDN'T BE TELLING PEOPLE HOW TO RAISE THEIR CHILDREN ALTHOUGH I PROBABLY WOULDN'T TAKE MY CHILD TO A PG-13 FILM THAT IS MY CHOICE TO MAKE.

Not really. I'm pretty sure everyone's (well maybe not everyone's, but a lot of people) first reaction when they heard that one of the victims was a 3 month old baby was "what the fuck was a 3 month old doing there in the first place?". He's not trying to compare this tragedy to a kid's hearing being ruined, he's just questioning how a kid could have even been in a position like that. And I agree

Of course there are, but this is still a "heart wrenching story" and Draiman is questioning why it had to happen in the first place. He's allowed to comment on one isolated aspect of the event without having to provide some kind of overreaching statement regarding everything. And he's certainly not trying to downplay the loss of life either

I never understand that way of thinking. People will get more paranoid and more shootings will happen. There's a reason gun crime in America is one of the highest in the world - ALMOST ANYONE CAN BUY A GUN.

Anyway more terrific American logic: One of the guys who was shot is in an induced coma right now but didn't have insurance meaning that if/when he comes round, along with brain damage he's gonna have to deal with a $2million medical bill. The logic there being "Let's let people buy dangerous weapons at will, but let them have affordable/free healthcare? OH HELL NO, that's a stupid idea! Why would anyone want affordable healthcare paid for through taxes in case they get shot by one of the millions of guns owned by members of the public?"

Giving the parents any critique for their child getting shot at a fucking movie theater is stupid. They probably couldn't find a babysitter and figured the kid would fall asleep during the movie, it's not like they knew that some jackass with painted red hair was gonna bust in and shoot everyone

I'm not going to go deep in to the whole gun issue or say which side is right, but I want to add that many criminals that would be inclined to do crimes such as this would still end up with guns even if gun ownership was legally restricted.

Well if gun crime further increases in the event of gun control, it'd be a rather sad indictment of American society compared to other countries where guns are illegal and, despite having occasional occurrences it's nowhere near US levels.
