The Sins Of The Father

Will Vehrs asks:

While we're at it, shouldn't the Treasury Department freeze the assets of Walker's parents? After all, they were supporting a terrorist.

Well, actually, while I'm probably a little "wobbly" on Walker myself (in that while I think his behavior treasonous, that there's little point in making a literally capital case of it), I do think that this would send an interesting message to parents who not only don't control the direction of their offspring's antisocial behavior (which is not always possible), but who actively encourage it by, for example, sending him money in the midst of it, and not even under the pretense that he will use it to get out of the game, but to actually allow him to continue it.

I have even less sympathy for the parents than I do for little Jihad Johnnie.
