I would say they should have just killed the kid instead of taking him into custody but that seems like too light of a punishment for him. Throw him in solitary confinement for the rest of his life, make sure he never has contact with anyone else except through a slot to get his food.


Too expensive... cases like this I rather just drag 'em out back and double tap like you would a rabid dog. There is no rehab or coming back from this, so what is the point of locking them up for life?

I've never really been a fan of life in prison as a punishment due to cost. If it is bad enough for life, it is bad enough to just get the death penalty imho.

On another board, a pic from off this guy's social media has already been put out there.

He doesn't look like a high school kid for sure. Now I'm hearing he is a former student. I wonder how "former". He looks to be closer to 30 than 20 to me, but it's hard to tell these days.

Senator Nelson (D-FL) on Fox right now complaining they couldn't even get a bill passed that would bar people on the terror watch list from buying a gun.

That's because it's an arbitrary list with way too many people who aren't terrorists, asshole. Come up with a real solution.

Well, that didn't take long, did it? Of course, Shepard Smith pushed it in that direction, being the dq that he is.

An Associates' degree takes 2 years, so he could conceivably be much younger than 25. One of the students who was interviewed said he was about 20 or 21.

Having heard and looked at this on the news the following can be stated:

The event happened, so lets have a moment for hopes and prayers.

That is how this is suppose to go down right? A person goes into a school, murders people and we should just give hopes and prayers, and then move on.

Sounds cold doesn't it?

So now the questions being, why the person did such? Where did the person get the weapon(s)? And what could have been done to prevent this from happening.

It is that last question this is often asked, but nothing is ever done. And that should be what we see, is there going to be moved to be proactive or is it going to be pretty much nothing done, save for hopes and prayers.

If it was your child, or a school in your neighborhood, what would you want, hopes and prayers, or something more concrete and substantial that prevents this from ever happening again?

Of course he did. I didn't recognize the Congressman but before they even put up the banner saying who he was I knew it was gonna be a Democrat calling for gun control, and given past experience I expected it to be something that would have zero effect.

It costs more to give someone the death penalty than it does to keep them locked up for life. But yeah, killing him on the spot would have been cheaper so I see your point.

Oh, wow...The suspect was brought to the same hospital as the victims. I don't see that turning out well.

How terribly sad. My heart goes out to all the parents and family whose child was senselessly murdered. What an awful day for them.

I'll let you know when someone offers a concrete suggestion that would have any impact. Usually we just get feel-good "solutions" that are just meant to make people feel better that they did something even if it makes no sense. There will be calls for assault weapon bans, regardless of what kind of weapon was used. There's already been calls for banning people on the terror watch list from buying guns, despite no reason to think this guy was on the terror watch list. That's all you're going to hear over the next week or so, suggestions that would do nothing to stop someone from committing mass murder but instead of just hopes and prayers, you offered hopes, prayers, and pipe dreams.

I agree, I hope for their sake there's more of a separation than seems.
News says some are being sent to Broward Heath and others to North. Both are trauma one hospitals.

That is only because the legal system allows a bunch of appeals over technicalities and other nonsense... no reason someone should be on death row 15 or 20 years.

I support the death penalty in clear cut cases like this where there is no question the perpetrator did it. We aren't using some flimsy DNA or unsure eye witness or any situation with reasonable doubt. Just drag 'em out back and end it. Cost what... all of two bullets and about 10 minutes plus whatever clean up is necessary. Helluva lot cheaper than three hots and a cot for life.
