School shooting:

www.cnn.com...

Basically, sounds like a 15yr old kid went on a shooting rampage with a pistol.


A 15-year-old male student was arrested at the scene and will be charged with murder and attempted murder, Gov. Matt Bevin said. Marshall County Attorney Jeff Edwards said it's likely the suspect will be charged as an adult, but his name won't be released unless he's indicted


Doubt this is a Vegas-style "false flag"...but sadly, I'm not being proven wrong about my prediction of at least one mass shooting per month for this year, until they condition the public to DEMAND complete disarmament (or at the very least, ridiculous gun laws that will basically eventually make private sales and ownership be too cost prohibitive...)

How does a 15 year-old child come to be in possession of a firearm? Genuine question. If it should turn out to be from his parents, would they not also be culpable too? These stories amaze me sometimes.

The first question we should be asking is, was this kid on Prozac?

A very large percentage of all these school shooters had been mentally 'treated' in some fashion before their acts of ultra-violence, but no one wants to connect-the-dots.

Since it's illegal for those under 18 to buy them, some cases 21.

Either he stole it, or straw buyer.

Not exactly a mind blowing prediction considering we average one a day.

Yes let's blame medical conditions of the mind. How about why that kid turned out the way he is in the first place?

Weird, searched on it, but didn't come up. Mods, please close.

(and no, we do not have a mass shooting once a day)

That's what I'm trying to find out.

The shooter looked lifeless and didn’t think twice about what he was doing, Conkwright told WKRN


The guy seems to have the same blank, expressionless look on his face as many other mass shooters. MK-Ultra?

A mass shooting is any shooting with four or more victims. Guy kills his wife, both kids, and himself in a domestic dispute? That gets counted as a mass shooting. Drive-by shooting in the hood wounds three bangers and a little girl asleep in her bed? That's a mass shooting

There is no gold-standard definition, but most people work off the definition of either three or four shooting victims in one incident.

So yea, there's about one a day thanks to that definition.

And here it is, the recent active shooter drill:

Health Dept. plans active shooter training
Staff Report Oct 17, 2017

All the horror aside, the teachers for that school should be commended. The footage I saw showed multiple professional staff being the leaders those children needed at that moment.

I'd call it "bravery", but that term is so ill used its almost meaningless.

The name of the shooter has not been officially released, but this site claims to have his name:

What does this have to do with the price of tea in China?

Literal definition? Sure.... Practical definition? No. Semantics. :

Still a mass shooting. Why are you trying to find the silver lining to what a mass shooting is?

Two days later, and they still haven't publicly identified the shooter. Very strange, and unprecedented for a school shooter.


www.bgdailynews.com...
(Thursday) Police haven't publicly identified the 15-year-old accused of opening fire Tuesday at Marshall County High School.


-----------------------

This dude was obviously in some kind of altered mental state:

After the shooting stopped, Edwards said he went to a room inside the school and the shooter was there, talking to friends “like it was nothing.”
