As parents, we used to feel secure in our children being safely watched over in our nation's schools. We drop them off in the morning, make sure they have their lunches and homework, kiss them good-bye, and happily go about our day- never even fathoming that we may never again see their smile, hear their giggle, feel their touch, tuck them in at night...But, tragically, the families of the five victims of the Jonesboro shooting now know that pain. But Jonesboro is not the only town affected by misdirected, misunderstood children. While the media pounced on this story, seizing the opportunity to mount their proverbial soapboxes to address the issues, few- if any- took the time to really research the facts. "Experts" were quick to give their hasty analyses, turning this calamity into a pop symbol of our social decline. During this upheaval, Arkansas govenor Mike Huckabee met with the grieving people of Jonesboro, the victim's families, the Arkansas law enforcement officials, and felt compelled to address this issue- not as just another authoritative voice, but as a concerned citizen with a strong desire to move forward with hope, confidence, and security.Governor Huckabee uses the pages of this book to explore this crisis looming over our country. As a former pastor and state official, Huckabee has first-hand experience with the demise of our nation. This experience qualifies him to examine the cultural demoralization and the current fascination with anti-heroes. Huckabee pulls everything together and proposes a key to recovery- the return to basic values: faith, family, work, and community.

Kids Who Kill: Confronting Our Culture of Violence is a 1998 non-fiction book by former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee and Evangelical Christian author and pastor George Grant.

Mike Huckabee, George Grant (Goodreads Author). This book is less about what may lead kids to kill and more a summary of Huckabee's political views. He rarely connects his views to violence committed by children, or violence in general. I've read many books about school shootings and sociopaths (which most shooters are) and this one was the least interesting. Feb 23, 2015 Wendy Beckman rated it it was ok.

Not what I expected, a psychological analysis of children who kill. This is more a religious based treatise but it is my fault for not recognizing the name of the author.

This book is a 154 page argument for censorship that avoids discussing the March 24, 1998 mass shooting in Jonesboro Arkansas that took the lives of 4 middle school students and one teacher. Huckabee and Grant engage in some special pleading in the Introduction about the tragedy but never really return to it.

Another great book to read by Mike Huckabee. Thanks for the fast return

Huckabee with Grant provide us with a fine delving into this issue which has so tugged at the hearts of Americans: our kids killing other kids.
Many thought this very thing would happen (along with all the other cultural malice we have) given the cultural downturn did not right itself.
Convincingly and winsomely, this book presents the road America has been on and is being urged on by the postmodernists, but one that is destroying the very foundations and fabric of our great country .... faith, family and work.
They well document the contributors, and resolve that government and legislation are not the answer. Culture must gather itself around these three areas, faith, family and work.
Fine expose on the topic. We can't expect or let the government do those things for which we individually and communally were created to attend to as stewards.

I imagine this book is selling even more copies as these problems have increased in schools in the last couple of weeks, I think we had an incident almost every day the second week of October. The profiles of the violent incidents were very well written. Most you will have heard of, some of them probably not.

Mike Huckabee wrote this book in 1998, well before he was on the presidential circuit or on Romney's vice presidential short list. But the themes Huckabee expressed in 1998 are entirely consistent with the themes he expressed during his 2008 presidential run, and on his TV show and books since.

Those themes, as expressed in the book's title and subtitle, are that the breakdown of the family structure leads to childhood crime, as well as to a high level of abortions and other immoral acts. Huckabee details this theme in his outline of the book (pp. 4-5) as follows:

"We'll explore the notion that at the heart of [juvenile criminal violence] are the questions of character, virtue, and cultural cohesion.
"The various contributing factors of America's cultural demoralization are examined [including] a disregard for the value of life.
"We'll develop the notion that the key to our recovery is the vitality of America's basic values: faith, family, work, and community."

If Romney picks Huckabee for V.P., it will be because of this theme connecting faith and family and morality and recovery. Huckabee will excite the same crowd as Sarah Palin, but without her divisiveness. So we'll see--

This is a very quick read and presents a thorough overview of a disturbing problem. I finished it in less than 24 hours.
Mike Huckabee was governor of Arkansas when the tragic schoolyard shooting took place in Joneboro. In the heat of such an unforeseeable horror, many voices offered soundbite explanations as to what could possibly have cause such nightmare-stretching pogrom. Unfortunately, as the governor wisely points out, many of these diversely-intended know-it-alls look at one aspect of the problem but fail to dig deeply enough to reach it true roots.
The books detailed hypotheses will not sit well with those who wish to utilize such a tragedy to call for strict gun control regulations. The authors (Dr. George Grant collaborated with the governor) wisely explore the current splenetic forces at work throughout American culture from the breakdown of the family to Hollywood's repeated celebration of gratuitous violence. In one especially harrowing chapter the reader enters a perverse video game and sees just how much hate and violence is being peddled at American children.
If the book has one drawback is that it may be that it will be confined to preaching to the choir. Tumescent with quotes and references to support every idea propounded, the authors rely almost exclusively on conservative voices from William Bennett to Alan Keyes to Michael Medved. Few open-minded people could serious question the knowledge of these sources, but their pandemic citings and the under-representation of liberal mover and shakers (and there a few who advocate such common sense values) may turn off those who ideology blinds them to the sapience of conservatives.
It's definitely worth a read and will serve as a useful tool to parents who must contend with a culture that is assiduously fighting them at every turn.
