Hey America how about one school shooting, one killed kid in a school, is too much?
I’m Batman (19 hours ago)
Today in 2019 every time a shooting happens lefties try to force gun control on law abiding citizens before the bodies are cold. And then they bust on the police for not getting there in time.( they demonize the police unless they need them ) police aren’t supermen, they can’t know exactly when and where there’ll be a shooting. All they can do is their best. I fail to see how it’s the gun or the police departments fault. The only one who should be blamed for shootings are the SHOOTERS!

Calling them killers is a mistake... World is messed up People mess with other people and those people hate to be messed with

You know. They are killers. Depressed or not, good people use their pain to help others. You can see people living poor and hungry and yet they try their hardest to help others. These monsters, they used their pain to make others feel the same. That is despicable.

Stop bullying kids that you think aren't cool and maybe they won't be so angry to do something this crazy. Every one from my school stuck together, if you wear the colors you were apart of the family the team for life no matter how rich or poor or fat or skinny we showed love to our fellow students.

We’ve had two kids show up to school with guns in the past year. Luckily they both got arrested but it’s scary that’s it’s so close to home and I have two siblings in HS. There’s not a day that I don’t worry something might happen and it all started because of this

"It was all..." sniff... "because people were mean to them last year" sniff-sniff Well, instead of minding their own business, the "athletic" lot known as "future superstars" picked on them. Now, most people (for unknown reasons to me) remain traumatised from the bullying for the rest of their lives. They're called victims. They feel nausea facing their bullies even at their twentieth homecoming anniversary. But, there are others, the very few, who reject to be victims. They take matters in their own hands, and get even. In no way am I cheering for the dynamite... I mean, dynamic duo. Just saying that what goes around, comes around.

It would be a lot more understandable if they targeted the football team instead of random kids under tables.

Everybody knows about columbine. I think that was the point. Harris and klebold are infamous. The media glamorized these guys to the point where u don’t know the names of the victims just the shooters. It’s sad and tragic and still goes on to this day.

I went to both privates and public schools and let me say that private schools were way more better secure than the public ones I went to (this was around elementary and middle school, I had went to two different private schools and around 2 or 3 different public schools). Anyways the only real time I did remember an anti-bullying program coming to our school was in private middle school but that didn’t work and they kept on bullying the kid. Anti-bullying programs don’t really work most of the time bc majority of the bullies either do it bc of an environment issue at home (in a sense a deeper psychological matter in an environment that leads them to be the bully not bc they wanted to but bc they are self destructive or/and want to cause harm to others like how their parents or guardians did or/and how they grew up learning this type of behavior), they just don’t really know better (like children saying things just bc they really don’t know that their words or actions are damaging , and we teach them the proper respect and manners to avoid these mistakes and how to control their emotions), spoil kids just thinking they own the place and people love them, or is a animal nature to reduce/make fun of the outcast (if you ever watched Parks&Rec you’ll noticed how Jerry is always bullied and picked on, and how Ron says that in every work or school environment we all have a Jerry to bully on or to make fun of, these can depend on many other psychological reasons such as if it is human nature to survive a nature were we bully the weak and the strong are popular or “normal”, or we make fun of them to make our own selves feel better, and so on so forth). Is real unfortunate how kids will be mentally scar by these actions from these horrid killers. However as we talk more about mental health and these stories (not the killers, but the aftermath and signs) we have more chances to stop these crimes. Not even long ago a mother had successfully rescued what could have been another unfortunate school shooting by informing the police of her son’s journals of where he plan on shooting a school. See the warning signs, never let emotions or fear get to you bc there are lives at steak.

it’s crazy how so many kids didn’t know what was going on back then and now we can simply just hear a door slam and automatically think it’s a shooting.
Courtney Kayser (19 days ago)
"They're also extremely rare." I think Parkland and Sandy Hook are proving those people wrong now.
Erral Sanders (11 days ago)
@Courtney Kayser thats very skewed data. School shooting can be classified as something as little as an airsoft gun going off 1,000 feet around a school area. Also police officers who shoot gang members in the school parking counts as a school shooting. They use that data to lie to people like you and making it seem like there are 180 sandy hooks happening.
David Gould (12 days ago)
Did you not just see this video? Shootings now are less than they used to be but it’s cause of the news that we think it’s more

@Erral Sanders There have been 180 school shootings in the last 10 years, dipstick. I just listed two. Learn to Google. https://www.cnn.com/interactive/2019/07/us/ten-years-of-school-shootings-trnd/

Wow 2 incidents in the past 6 years. Thats so much. Totally not are.
Mark /Carr (19 days ago)
I’m gonna be honest, High schools need a program for mental health, and how to be an entrepreneur in your life, there’s a lot of bullying, suicides, and shootings and if we can come together and make a mental health class, to cheer you up and get inspiration from one another.

Ok, I am currently in 7th grade and many people go through changes in attitude and bullying happens more often that it should, and once I went through a phase in which i was just scared of going to school in the first place because i knew that bullying and isolation cause violence like in columbine high school. But now I see to be more calm. I am sort of scared but not as much as before
