They should show this in high schools. For both bullies and for anyone ever thinking about doing something like this to see the other side... this conversation obviously needed to take place before...
brother is pretty level headed

“You can’t even own a gun now”. That kid will never, ever see outside again and never be free.

Not defending his actions but he needs mental help
Imagine he had a talk like this before the day of the shooting...

His brother has what he lacks... the ability to empathize and care for others.

His brother is in pain for sure... I can hear it in his voice. He feels guilt for what his brother did. So sad...

Just a reminder that this man killed 17 people in a ten minute period.

Edit: I'm not saying that he didn't have mental health issues. I'm not saying he didn't have a challenging life. I don't want to be insensitive. I honestly just find it interesting. I always thought that shootings aren't that quick, that it would take a considerable amount of time to take 17 innocent people's lives. But it didn't. It took less than ten minutes. I feel empathy for him, but I have absolutely no sympathy for him.

I feel bad for both. That boy freaking needed real freaking love. And his brothers love came too late.

his brother should’ve said “what if someone shot me” and talked about the pain he caused for others. they’re focusing too much on themselves rather than the victims

If one of my siblings ever would if something as this I would still love them but I wouldn’t look at them the same way ever again. I wouldn’t feel safe around them. I would be AFRAID of them.

I feel so bad for the brother. He lost his parents, his girlfriend killed herself and now his only family left is a monster. I can’t imagine his pain.

I have always wondered what school shooters would do, say and feel when dealing with the aftermath of their actions. This vulnerable, fragile, emotional mess was not what I was expecting. He looks like a sensitive, broken individual, but it is hard to understand why he would do such a thing. How was he capable of doing it all? Why?

Zach is the literal definition of motivational speaker. He Motivated me to be a better person
Cruz: Kills 17 people...
Brother: man...u cant own a gun anymore
When his brother said he loved him he immediately regretted it. His eyes opened and saw what kind of person he was.. a murderer. He is scared of himself now

But maybe he is just messing with all of us. Tbh I don’t care if he lives or dies. He took more than he deserves to live
I can't ever forget what this kid did, but I feel so bad for him too.

That man didn't even have parents, friends, not even his older brother. He was a sad lonely man without no one in this world. All he needed was a hug, a friend. It's insane what people can do.

"I believe in y--- *sigh*... just stay solid, alright?"

I really think he could’ve been stopped. If he got the right help.
This is why it’s important that kids get help at a young age with whatever they’re dealing with because it can go further... and people can end up hurting themselves or others if they never get any help.

i genuinely feel like bullies got him to do it, combined with a toxicated mentality
Personally, I can't even hug a sibling of mine after doing something like that, I would honestly rail into them if they killed 17 people
Paris Bree
Paris Bree:
There’s so much loss all around. Caused by him. When he says he’s a failure, I agree. You failed to give all of those children a future.
His brother still has the courage to love and care about his brother after all he did. Damn that’s a good sibling

No one

All the kid Need was some love😔

I Play Game's ಠ_ಠ
I Play Game's ಠ_ಠ:
I am kinda mad at everyone that says that they "hope he dies" or "should burn in hell" (I am not saying I support murder/murderers) but I feel bad because he lost his mom, felt hopeless or like no one cared for him. That is why he killed 17 people, to let his frustration out on the world, he is also young and didn't know what he is doing, to prove this his brother says "people think you are a monster now" and he replies "a monster?" in a scared tone, (0:34) at the time he was killing people, he was just focused on letting out his madness and pain, similar to what he felt. I feel deeply sad for this 19 year old that could have been a great person, with great friends, which was sadly trapped by depression and sadness which guided him to murder.
He's hurting he acted out because he felt that everyone hated him or something like that
L K:
I know that deep down, he just needed someone; anyone. I have this feeling that he was a good kid who could have done exceptionally great things. He just needed help. Teenage years are hard. I can tell that he now feels the guilt of ruining so many people’s lives. I will NEVER purposefully imply that this man did not do horrendous things. What I am saying is that I appreciate his brother so much for being there, and that I’ve acknowledged his pain. You do not have to care for my opinion. You can have completely different ones, too. I hope that one day, he could see this and possibly change. There’s a small chance of that. I know. I just feel like it’s the right thing to write this.

Edit: I also have the mindset that he could have been selfish and cried for himself. It could be a facade or something.
His brother will have a TED talk one day.

He killed 17 people and isn’t facing death and Ynw Melly possibly killed 3 and if found guilty could face death penalty. Now there’s something wrong with that 😐

The one flaw in what that brother said was repeating “ight” 46 times
His brother 😢 omg he’s broken. He’s blaming himself. And after what his brother has just done he’s going to stand by him 😢 R.I.P to all the victims

It’s been two years since this incident has happen. But every time when’s there’s the mention of guns or school shooting, this incident would always come into mind.

If that guy truly loved and was his brother he wouldn't make him feel like he wanted to kill himself or isolate him from his friends
Amazing Supergirl
Amazing Supergirl:
He’s crying for HIMSELF not the people he hurt and killed
Edit: I should’ve added that I watched his entire trial including a three hour session with his psychiatrist who said he’s mentally ill. He’s extremely sad for himself and disappointing his brother but not sad about the victims. Hopefully he’s getting good care and can learn to at least have some sympathy.

Brother was definitely in shock. What a hard situation to be in.
The power of love, Celine dione said it, Nikolas brother proved it.
He killed 17 people, I wonder if he feels remorse at all.

I remember telling me my mom one day “I wish I was Nicholas friend, I wish I had have known him and get to talk to him” and she told me “why” , I told her “because he had the same pain as mine but much more worse than mine, he lived with nothing and no one to care for him and tell him i love you from time to time, everything he’s been through has just nothing but mustered up real hate towards everyone that has bullied him, all he ever wanted to express his emotions to someone, that’s all he really needed. My mom is really into the church always has been , I didn’t have a connection with god when I was little but I felt god touch my heart 2 years ago (2018) because anxiety was new to me, as hopeless as I felt overcoming anxiety and depression, my mom always took me to the place that was the best to pray a rosary the chapel. I’m 17 now and been praying for corona to go away but all in all, keep your head High, smile in the mirror everyday, and keep your heart strong not hard. God bless take care❤️
