Compliments of one of our Eyes

When Angels Cry



                             THIS IS WHY THE ANGELS CRY....

Why would a normal well-adjusted teen kill his family?  Because according to his uncle, former State Senator Eric Griego, the 15-year-old murderer of the Griego family was just that “a normal well-adjusted teen” and not the monster everyone is allegedly portraying him to be.  What?  Normal well-adjusted teens do not kill their families, let alone anyone else for that matter.  So, here are some of the Eye On Albuquerque’s thoughts regarding this tragedy.

However, we have to share some information we received before we proceed to our thoughts.  We received some interesting information from one of our Eyes.  The murderer of the Griego family was not a normal well-adjusted teen, in fact he was just the opposite; he was a defiant teen who had been headed down the wrong path for quite some time.  According to one of our Eyes, the murderer of the Griego family was thrown out of several public schools and not allowed to return.  This is reason why he was being homeschooled by his mother, who by the way was his step-mother and not his biological mother (another detail one of our Eyes brought to our attention).   
It was also pointed out by a couple of our Eyes there were multiple guns throughout the Griego home and not just in the parent’s bedroom as stated by the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department and the media.  Our Eyes reported that Greg Griego felt the murderer of him and his family was the eldest child and being the eldest entitled him to be “the man of the house” when he was gone.  So, Mr. Griego felt the murderer of him and his family needed to be able to protect the family when he was away at work, church, the store, etc…  Mr. Griego felt this way because some of the primarily felonious reintegration’s (possible convicted felons) he had living on his property. 

One of our Eyes broke down in tears while sharing this information.  Our Eye said they are having a hard time dealing with the loss of their friend, Greg Griego, and his family.  Along, with this loss is the guilt this Eye is living with and the misinformation that is being fed and/or displayed by the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department and the media.  Our Eye feels they should have pushed Greg Griego harder to do something about the murderer of the Griego family.  Our Eye told us they stopped going to the Griego residence because they were in fear of the murderer of the Griego family and the many guns available throughout the house that were not locked up.   
Now on to the Eye On Albuquerque’s thoughts regarding this horrific tragedy.  One word, NARCISSISM; narcissism is simply a personality trait distinguished by egotism, vanity, conceit or other selfish desires and needs.  Why does the Eye bring up narcissism?  Because we feel today’s society is teaching its youth to become more and more narcissistic.  We give our children everything, such as; game systems, cell phones, computers, etc…  We call our children a prince or a princess and build up their egos, when the bottom line is our children, just like us, in all probability will be just like us; ordinary adults trying to survive day-to-day, week-to-week, paycheck-to-paycheck.  Giving and providing for our children is the ‘norm’ of parenting.  Building your child’s expectations with unreasonable prospects is the downfall of most failed parenting.

Here is where we are going with narcissism: Greg Griego felt his eldest son, the murderer of him and his family could defend the family when he was not home.  This is an extremely heavy burden and responsibility to place in the hands of a fifteen year old teen who was displaying defiant behaviors.  We believe Greg Griego had a heart of gold but with this heart of gold, he was trying too hard to save others, while ignoring or being blind to the needs within his own home. 
Sara Griego (possibly the step-mother and not the bio-mother, so we will go by step-mother throughout the rest of this article) was the disciplinarian while Mr. Griego was away.  Now, the murderer of the Griego family was dating a twelve year old girl, who we have been told by our Eyes the murderer of the Griego family’s parents were not happy with and did not approve of their relationship.  The murderer of the Griego family has said he was mad at his mother.  It is our opinion Mrs. Griego and the girlfriend’s parents wanted them to end their relationship.  Could this have upset the murderer of the Griego family to the point of planning his parent’s death, along with the girlfriend’s parent’s death (the girlfriend’s parents are still alive and no harm came to them)?  An obstacle he felt he needed to get rid of so they could still be together?  The Eye found this very thought in an article the Albuquerque Journal (Read it HERE) wrote called Kids Who Kill their parents.  Here is a piece of this thought: as well as a desire to remove an obstacle-such as a parent who won’t let the child date the person of his or her choice (Heide 2013). 

The murderer of the Griego family’s parents provided him with a game system and video games.  It has come to the public’s attention that some of these video games were extremely violent.  We do believe these violent video games can make a person become desensitized, especially in young children and teenagers. 
Granted, the murderer of the Griego family was upset and wanted to murder his parents and did just that.  Why his siblings, where they in his way?  Hum, well let’s see.  They became witnesses to a horrific crime and too young to comprehend that their brother just murdered their mother (Mr. Griego was ambushed four hours later when he returned home, after everyone else was already killed).  These small children probably started screaming and crying and the murderer of the Griego family was unable to control them, so he controlled the situation, just like in a game.  The children became points per kill and not his own flesh and blood.  So again, another red flag Mr. Griego ignored.

The murderer of the Griego family fits the perfect narcissistic individual; everything was given to him and the people who knew him best, his parents, ignored and enabled these behaviors and tried giving him more monitorial items, then what he needed most; help.  So, when the parents tried to take away the one single item the murderer of the Griego family wanted most, his girlfriend, he became enraged and started planning. 
The murderer of the Griego family, along with his twelve year old girlfriend, started planning their parents’ murders.  Yes, this twelve year old girl new everything, in fact, the murderer of the Griego family sent a picture of his dead step-mother to her via his i-phone.  Evidentially, this twelve year old was interviewed by police and cleared of any possible complicity in this tragedy.  This according to ABC news (Read it HERE) in an article you can find at the following:

Again, another narcissistic child, she knew what was going to happen and did nothing to stop it.  Granted, some will say she is only twelve years old, too young to know what to do.  What?  Sorry, she is old enough to know right from wrong and could have brought it to someone’s attention.  But again, her parents were coming between what she wanted; the murderer of the Griego family.  Remember, they discussed killing her parents too.
Now not all narcissists will commit murder but narcissism in combination with other problems or issues that go untreated, undiagnosed or ignored, such as’ deviant behavior, mental issues, psychological problems, drug use, etc… is a deadly combination.

The Eye also feels the media holds some culpability in this tragedy.  What you ask.  In recent tragedies, such as, the Sandy Hook Elementary School killings, the Colorado Movie Theater killings, etc… with the media we are told “if it bleeds it leads.”  In other words, the media thrives off the blood and misfortunes of others; they sensationalize and make the monster famous.  The media does need to report the news but their focus should be on the victims and not the monster.  We feel the murderer of the Griego family also had a desire to experience being the focus of all the media’s attention.  If you have taken note you will see that nowhere in this story does the murderer’s name appear; he does not deserve it.
Some view the murderer of the Griego family as a child who has made a mistake, when in all probability the facts will reveal, he was a cold-hearted calculated murderer who took five precious lives away from our community.  The Eye sees three very different valid points:  the first is the family who has lost five members but still has this child who they do not want to see spend the rest of his life in prison.  The second is justice, justice in certain situations is what the victim(s) feel is just.  The third and final point is the community, as a whole, will not feel safe with a “person [child]” free in our community who has murdered five family members.  If this person did not respect his own family, we feel assured that the community will hold a much lower ranking to him, than his own family.   

Now, please take a moment to read the passages below and think about its “meaning” and do not take the passages literally.

“Someday God will force parents eat their own children.”

‘And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat.’” -- Leviticus 26:29

And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters. -- Deuteronomy 28:53

“Children who refuse to obey their parents must be executed.”

If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them: Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place; And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard. And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear. -- Deuteronomy 21:18-21

He that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death. -- Exodus 21:15

He that curseth his father, or his mother, shall surely be put to death. -- Exodus 21:17

These scriptures are extreme, however, the point is; people must be parents to their children.  Parents must love, care, nurture, teach, train, coach, counsel, mentor and at times discipline their children to provide them with the correct path of life.  A parent must recognize bad or deviant behavior as just that and act accordingly.

Bad or deviant behavior is commonly a cry for help!  Give your children the help they need.  This cry for help may indicate psychological problems, mental problems or even drug use.  Talk to a doctor, a counselor or a psychologist.  Call the Juvenile Probation Department for other ancillary services that are provided for free.

We here at the Eye want our community to be safe.  That means you, your family, your neighbors, your co-workers and anyone else that is part of your life…  This story was not intended to disrespect or belittle the Griego family but to use this tragedy in hopes to reach out to other families that may be experiencing a similar situation.  It has made us take a second look at how we are raising our own children and grandchildren in our families here at the Eye, so we can make a difference in our community.   Our sincere thoughts, love and prayers are with the family.

I get everything you are trying to say except when you start quoting weird bible verses.

I think that might be one of the problems, the bible (along with all other religons) are a throwback to a time when we did not understand why the sun was in the sky. Well we have come a long way since then and maybe, just maybe it is time to toss off the heavy cloak of religous superstition and starting living life as free thinkers and logical people. It may not solve everything, but it is certainly better than teaching our children that they should be "put to death" for disobeying their parents.

Think for yourself people. Don't let uneducated fools from the 1st and 2nd century do your thinking for you.

The yellow journalism elements of NM media is what caused Eric Greigo to go directly to the national media. The Dr Drew show allowed him a forum to speak and not have to worry that it would all be churned out in favor of BCSO or somehow the Governor's "protect our children" agenda. I can't blame the man for asking the national media to hold off judgment. I do blame him for suggesting a 12 year old girl conspired to kill his family. Yes, parents know when someone is off with their kid. Maybe the Greigos tried to get him help but with all the budget cuts at the Dept of Health, how could they do that? I doubt Mr Griego has health insurance. I agree about the weapons not being properly stored. There is no excuse for that. None

What a disgusting, low rent posting even by the Eys's cesspool standards. Refering to the "murderer of the Griego family" and blaming the tragedy on "narcism" of a 16 year old is sick at best. You profess to have morals and be a watch dog of governement corruption, but go after a very tragic case and cite biblical verse. Now we have a better understanding who the Eye really is and what you are all about. No dount you did not attend the funeral services, otherwise you would not know the true love of a family who has forgiven one of their own and who is lost. This is one posting that you should withdraw out of respect for a grieving family. You have lost all credibility with this one posting! What is disgusting is that you no doubt believe the rhetoric you spewed.

Well good thing Jesus came and saved us from the Laws of Moses and gave us the New Testament. Since you are quoting bible verses: Jesus said all will sin and fall short the glory of God. Train your child in the ways of God; and above all foregiveness. The media including you Eye are horrible. The Griego family are victims and I am hopeful that they will get earthly justice for their deaths but I know is that Nehemiah will receive God's grace with his repentance. Your entire article makes no sense.

Another ax grinder with a discredit agenda. The article nails it. Kids are coddled these days and the system promotes it.

Take your agenda elsewhere. Your point is transparent. Your friends are already between a rock and a hard place and way too many people already read this site.

It is sad that this happened.

Stick to commentary on what is happening in city government as your moniker implies. If anyone is full of themselves its the writer of this judgmental ridiculousness. That is a sad statement. Look in the mirror "eye"! So many ASSumptions and generalizations, its pitiful. When you use the word "we", that includes me and I don't agree with any of the bullshit in this sick opinion you have written!

Are all the people who hate this post gun grabbers? Gun banners? If you aren't blaming the shooter, and the family that clearly ignored warning signs...what are you blaming? An inanimate piece of steal?

This did happen in the city, Bernalillo County is still part of the City. So I do think the Eye is sticking to what is happening in our city and our community. This tragedy does involve everyone, including government. Judgmental assumptions, the Eye didn't make up some selfish teenager killing 5 innocent people. His mother, father, and siblings. Suspecions on the motive, yes. Is the Eye wrong? We will see when all the phone records come back because I strongly feel that is where the answer lays.

Let's see. Killing you mother, going through the house killing your siblings,abushing and killing your father hours later, taking a picture of your dead mother and then leaving to spend the day with your girlfiend all because you're mad at your mom....seems pretty selfish and narcissistic to me. I think the Eye made a good observation and may have hit the nail on the head.

Anonymous said...

He took away the parent's rights to see their granchildren, he took away his sibling's rights to see another birthday and Christmas, he took away their right to go to prom, graduate, fall in love, get married, have children of thier own. Pretty selfish....

Anonymous said...

He is forgiven, and God will be the one to ultimately judge him but while he is still on earth, he is accountable for his actions. No matter how old he is, he committed the crime he should do the time. He planned and planned and planned. He is a cold-blooded very-calculated killer. I agree with the Eye, if he treated his own family this way....what would he do to you or I???

One more, we all have Freedom of Speech. The media and the Eye have the write to voice their opinions and so do you. Let's take these stories and use them to prevent tragedies like this from happening over and over, again and again. It is sad that the Griego Family will forever be in the spotlight for a horrific crime that one of their own family members committed and my heart and prayers goe out to them. However, there is also a community involved that has to be protected. Use this tragedy to prevent others.

Here's a suggestion, read the the Narcissism Epidemic: Living in the Age of Entitlement by Jean M. Twenge and W. Keith Campbell. I understand what the Eye is trying to point out. We are giving our children everything to keep them entertained, instead of giving them what they need the most, our time and our attention. Also, aren't you doing exactly what you are telling the Eye not to do? Condemning them for their opinions? Talk about being a hypocrite!

Unfortunately, instead of mourning; seeking justice and answers to this senseless killing; Eric G. has chosen to go on the national public denial tour and is not letting the horrific act of his nephew go to waste. After losing his congressional race Eric is intent on utilizing his position at the non-profit Voices for Children to get a cushy job in Washington D.C. to lobby/advocate to create more learned helplessness and poverty in our state. This tragic incident might become a stumbling block for Eric the fallen golden boy of the socialist oops-- (progressive party). The tradgedy could jeopardize his chances to become the Al Sharpton of the Latino community, Why does he think he is qualified to be the voice for our children when he could not recognize the potential time bomb ticking and a young man in need of help and advocacy in his own family. Eric will also have some explaining to do for not having his extended family marching to the beat of the progressive anthem (no guns, no home schooling, no religion). First, all good progressives believe in disarming everyone including law abiding citizens(militant muslim terrorists living in Egypt whom we give F-16 fighter jets to are excluded from this rule). His brother owned weapons. Second all good progressives disavow homeschooling because it erodes the power of the teacher's union and if children are not in school they cannot be indoctrinated; convinced they are being bullied; and given sex ed./birth control and taught the marginalization shuffle (how to access the system-section 8 housing; medicaid; food stamps and an Obama phone) Eric's nephew was home schooled. Third, Eric's brother and family attended church regularly. Just like Obama stated; "they cling to their guns and their religion..." Who knows what the body count would have been if it wasn't for that darn church and the intervention church members provided that day to a troubled; sick or perhaps simply evil young man. A good progressive anticipates an delights in the carnage of extremely high body counts and therefore, never lets a good crisis go to waste. Senator Barbara Fienstein and Piers Morgan would have been clapping in glee as they ginned up support to take away our evil guns and increased the ratings of their low brow, editorial/tabloid news.
Greg Griego and family, may you rest in peace.

To the 1:06 Jan. 29th posting. Your thoughts are very interesting and fall in line with some of the things that are running through my mind. Eric Griego is the type of individual, in my opinion, that is going to use this tragedy to his own benefit. I am sure there are more individuals who feel the same way.

Hahahaha. The only sore spot is your asshole. I have one pension locked down and am working on another one.

At 1:06, unless you are searching for a fishing expidition, you make absolutely no sense. No where has the Eye mentioned ever backing unions. And no where did they ever mention taking guns away from anyone. Their story here points out that the father new he had a troubled kid and should not have left his troubled kid with access to any form of weapons. He should have had his guns locked up. I also feel this way regarding the Sandy Hook shootings in Connecticut. The mother new her son was mentally ill, why in hell did she teach him how to shoot and give him access to guns. Sorry but it did her a lot of good. Same with Mr. Griego. God rest their souls but these parents were irresponsible with their guns. They shouldn't have been accessible to their kids. I have multiple guns and am an advid gun owner. But I'm also an educated responsible gun owner, it is my right and won't turn over what I have. But no where did I read the Eye telling us to give them up...just be responsible.
