Very saddening to learn about another tragic shooting in our country. I am at a loss for words. I feel for all the friends and families torn because of this persons own selfishness.
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, and seventeen people were killed. Parkland is in southeast Florida, about half an hour north of Fort Lauderdale.
That makes it one of the 10 deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history, and the fourth-deadliest school shooting.
It's also already the EIGHTEENTH school shooting in America in 2018. It's February 15th. What kind of society do we live in?
The shooter is a 19-year-old former student at the school named Nikolas Cruz. He was expelled from the school for disciplinary reasons and according to the police, his social media history is, quote, "very, very disturbing."
He posted about guns and violence, talked about killing people with an AR-15 assault rifle, and posed with BB guns, shotguns, and knives. Other students have talked about how he was a loner.
Of the seventeen victims, two were killed outside the school, 12 died in the school, one died on the street, and another two died at the hospital. Thirteen other people ended up in the hospital too.
The shooter initially got away afterwards, maybe by blending in with other kids who were running away. But the police quickly caught him, and now he's in custody.
That's rare in these situations . . . in the other 10 deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history, the shooter was killed or killed themselves. The shooter's motive isn't clear right now, but it turns out he was adopted, and both of his adopted parents were dead.
-I am one of those who are firm believers to term "People kill people not guns" I don't have the answers to fix this from happening in our country. Tighten things up, make an example of people who want to take this route. IMO.
