School shooting in Parkland Florida
 
Another one - senseless shooting in a school about 2:00 today.
Bodies not removed from building yet - suspect has been arrested.
Cell phone volume so high calls not getting through, so parents not knowing about their kids for a couple of hours.

So much for the day of love.
Prayers to all.

Five confirmed dead so far.Parkland is a fairly upscale community about halfway between Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach.Suspect was identified as 19 year old Nicholas Cruz , a former student at the school described by people who knew him as "socially awkward", which seems to be a common trait with these school shooters.

17 dead.

No, life wasn't perfect back in the 50s or 60s or 70s, but kids wouldn't dream of doing what is becoming commonplace now.

There was a report on Fox News he was on the internet looking at how to build bombs and Syrian resistance web sites.

This is not a rant and at this point I offer no solutions...but...my left wing colleagues are already all over the guns and the 2nd Amendment (a total idiot I work with is now a legal scholar). Violence in movies and I guess games which I'm not too familiar with, has to be somewhat of a factor. Movies and TV shows have gotten so violent, pornographically violent that thoughts must enter the subconscious of even the most stable individual and for those on the fringe...not saying to ban anything, I'm way too libertarian for that but Hollywood does shove some vile stuff down our throats. I know there's an off switch...

That fixes it as gospel, then! Anything about Antifa, Isis, or the Illuminati?

Blame pornographic films violent movies, or anything you want and it is a cop out. Underlying very systemic things are going on, I believe we are born with love of life and something has eroded and damaged some people's genome. Once a switch is flipped it may not be able to be reset. Combine drug use with poor upbringing the first seven years of life and you have something not human. And if we didn't need to get a handle on this, we want to have people already broken immigrate here so maybe not those who came first generation broken but broken kids they raised and exposed to drugs. Everything preliminary about this new monster it is not going to be good.

Parkland is an upscale community in Broward County fairly close to Coral Springs.

may be commonplace now in YOUR country, very very rare in most others.
maybe you could move to australia, but leave your guns at home.

Biggest school slaughter in the USA happened almost a century ago (1927)

And not with a gun...

Happening too much. A website that agrees on nothing can hopefully agree on this. Maybe it's time to for the media to stop covering it 24-7 after it happens. Report on it. Give it less attention. Treat it like a KKK rally/parade. Then again were talking about the Get the widow on set media we need dirty laundry.

I'm tired of the gun argument/mental health discussion. Everyone cares for a day then goes about their business again. Were too used to this.

It's going to happen again, sadly probably soon. I hope the media stops glorifying it....

Your correct but this one will beat like a drum. Your reference to Bath School disaster?

Yes, good thing they do not sell dynamite at sporting goods stores anymore.
