Tonight on the Scoot show: Elliot Rodger, 22, murdered 6 people Friday night before killing himself in Santa Barbara, CA. There were warnings that Rodger was not mentally stable. Roger posted a video on YouTube that was a manifesto describing why he was going on a killing spree. Basically, he was upset over being rejected by girls. Who or what is to blame for Elliot Rodger’s killing spree? Guns, failure of the mental health care system, a macho-driven society and movies that feature the awkward frat-boys get the hot girls have all ben blamed. Who or what do you blame? PLUS: Top New Orleans defense attorney Robert Jenkins says that juvenile rehabilitation doesn’t work and parents and guardians should be held accountable for their children’s actions. Do you agree?
A tweet about a United Airlines gate agent refusing to allow 3 girls, one 10, to board a flight wearing leggings exploded on social media and is now a mainstream media controversy. The girls were flying on a pass from a United Airlines employee and the dress code for “pass travelers” is stricter than other passengers. Do you consider leggings inappropriate?
Do you think the extremes are destroying their positions or do you applaud them for their unrelenting positions?
The extremes represented by The Freedom Caucus in Washington, D.C. and Take ‘Em Down NOLA may be destroying their own positions.
President Donald Trump and GOP leaders pulled their "Obamacare" repeal bill off the House floor Friday after it became clear the measure would fail badly. Does this reflect badly on the Republicans?

Exist at every level of the socio economic spectrum. Not just at the bottom. There's this parental failure at the top as well with very wealthy parents. It happens in wealthy neighborhoods right here in the greater New Orleans area. -- places right here in this area. Where there are will to do families. Who are doing no more of the job of raising their kids properly. That parents who are having kids. Just because they have sex. They have no intent on taking care of their kids either. So this isn't a problem that transcendence.

Jefferson Parish sheriff's office already blocking everything off could you advise and what's going on -- I don't know what's they're going on its first ever about it. -- from the West Bank terrier and a video. Yeah yeah every great empire must fall school. And that's where at the United States repeated probably. And 4050 years. People -- children were extremely materialism. And not act. Anything back. Kirk materialism in itself that that they have but what I mean are marketed in in there about the boys and trickle at the scene like when you. Grew up using it one way or act as a boy double fault. Literature out to perform in an irritable and everybody -- -- everybody get epic thing and get one. It hit its all Obama even -- -- act -- -- be weaker great people. Wolf upset because they'd get. -- at the football games this Super Bowl right. Outlook expect that the people you know they went all the -- that -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Harry you bring -- -- -- bringing up a good point this is part of the entitlement mentality. In America materialism. He thought. -- You. Know we know these people. Make. And in life we all need to learn to deal with disappointment and the things that we don't have. -- entered the game he had a technical. While it hello all more than. He'd mention. Well. Sure anybody else. It -- -- -- everybody is more well into why they can't traction -- because of the fact that Robert being subject it is. -- -- black you know -- participated. In the -- -- At some location I'll probably Tripoli where doctors take -- of people absolutely positively. But. I mean it is our society. I mean when people come back from the global bank and -- -- -- If you figure that treaty in the country -- and so why should we. -- -- I mean we can't go what should we want Kabul. Well I I agree I I thought the city was gonna get it and we are a great city to host an event like the Super Bowl but there are other cities that have done a good job hosting the Super Bowl was well and you know we're not when I heard about all the talk about what we need to build a new stadium now. I don't hear that about Miami I don't hear that about every seven hit that about San Diego of their other cities that are really good cities for holding Super Bowls and you know people are always looking to -- dispose of something and while the dole might not be. The most state of the art but technically. And don't facility in the country it's still a pretty darn good stadium and we are a great place to host a Super Bowl and I'm sure we'll get more. What we the week and if so well now. To be here would be got the stadium to get two or three more culpable. For. That amount. -- -- Harry I love I love that you bring up materialism. And you know the other thing that we have not been tested. With as a nation is is our resolve to pull together and I thought about this over Memorial Day weekend and talked about earlier Friday night. We were so tested in World War II. -- did this nation came together and we haven't been tested like that we have you know I guess that the biggest test was that following 9/11 because we were attacked on our soil. But there yet we we've we've kind of had it easy which had an easy as a nation we haven't struggled. You know -- outlook in the shop -- that the amount of mentioning. In this little boy look for -- right and you're able Rasheed and if you look at what more do you walk into it and what. -- now do you want them. And repeated throughout the country took these. Hey you're still here in the in the boy -- -- fiscal. The ball has ample. All all -- act won't let go up. Think that there are all. -- -- -- -- not that way that they're expecting. The crawl on pill popping up all out war. It -- -- an ambition. It is hopeful I entered and it. It won't. Help. A school in order -- -- sick she would like you you look at it now Koppel on what we pray in public. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- center area and it's it's very frustrating to add to those who realize that these are parents who are just doing a tremendous disservice to the kids they think they love.

Jesus Christ superstar -- spectacular. WL. And I remember that song and I mentioned this on the show before it's on my divine element I don't know how to want him. For Jesus Christ superstar which was controversy. It was controversial because people the establishment of the time interpreted that. Meaning I or how to make love to Jesus. I don't know how to love him in a sexual way. There were people who added that meaning to it. And I thought that was ridiculous because it's in the context of that it does that the rock opera it was.

Here's a -- RW -- -- -- opinion poll should parents be held criminally responsible for the shooting crimes other juvenile children. 36% say no 64% say yes. You wish your opinion by going to our website WW dot com -- are -- talking about tonight a top New Orleans defense attorney Robert Jenkins was on with that Tommy Tucker this morning at a VW offers news. And he said that their juvenile rehabilitation is not working. And -- parents and guardians should be held accountable for their children's actions withholding public assistance would be one way of holding parents accountable. But then a couple people have brought up well and it's -- point what do you do about the rich families. And there are rich families. Who also don't parent their kids. They do as poor job parenting because they are rich in their distracted and they don't pay attention their kids any more than. Then many low income families who were criticized for not raising their kids it look a lot of low income families to take care of their kids. And do raise their kids and it is a struggle it's harder to raise kids in some neighborhoods than in others. But this needs to be fair to everybody. And if you could figure out what the withholding would be in public assistance. Of the average parent on public assistance. And figure out the proportion. That. To their lives. That is the proportion that you would have to take financially. From a rich family. And I I think holding parents accountable to a really good idea. If if greedy selfish. Self centered parents. Who are more interested in their cars their clothes. Their clubs. Then there kids. If they. If they lost a lot of their money. They might consider doing a better job raising their kids. And this is something that does happen in wealthy neighborhoods as well. If you wanna join -- show with a comet tonight are numbers 2601870. Toll free 8668890. Point seven protects Amber's -- 7870.

The just that the disproportionate about a crime that we have in the world as it ever in America not not just 200 speaking in New Orleans but since we're into war once it that's what we're talking about. Over the Memorial Day holiday weekend twenty people were shot forward -- -- but again they the only difference between being.
