to be clear this thread is about the shooting at santa fe high school in galveston texas.... one person in custody and another detained...10 people now dead...gunman tossed something in a classroom so they are doing a sweep for explosives

www.dailymail.co.uk...


As someone living 10 miles from the shooting I feel the need to correct your report:
The shooting took place in Santa Fe Texas which is not in Galveston Texas. Perhaps the confusion comes from both cities being in Galveston county.

You do realize this is a completely different school in a completely different district?

Yes. You must go to school, where if you're one of the lucky ones, a pack of feral humans will descend upon you to inform you that you are not welcome. The "reasons" don't matter.

...and, if you're even luckier, that pack of feral humans will be members of socially prominent families who can intimidate others into ignoring or brushing off the aberrant behavior of said feral humans as "boys will be boys". Or, the teachers and admins, just plain don't give a rip.

If you're truly lucky, you manage to survive it like I did with a minimum of scarring, though they're still there. But then some of them do snap... With results that are all too obvious.

Bullying isn't the only reason, but in all too many cases it's involved, I dare say the majority.



Right on!! The gun debating, the political baiting, the left did it, the right did it,
it is all a moot point when you boil down this very great post to WHERE THE ISSUE IS!!
Bullying most in all these cases the kid's and teens have snapped. Online cyber bullying
is like an emotional gun to these at risk teens who then get a real gun and snap
on the people who have been viciously attacked and attacked and attacked them, Until that is it.

I believe that was in response to a posted link to a drill at another school, maybe Texas City.

Another oddity. Ten weeks ago there was a school shooting scare at that very school:

Posted: February 28, 2018
At approximately 12:30 p.m. today, Santa Fe High School was placed on lockdown as a precautionary measure as a result of a report of popping sounds thought to be gun shots heard outside the school and in the area.


Hmmm.... But I guess everyone will call it coincidence.

The most common denominator is drugs. In almost every case the shooter was on some form of medication, they stopped and there was in incident. If he was bullied and if there was interaction from the parents I bet he was.

But kids get bullied all over the world and do not go nuts and kill other kids.
Is it ease of access to guns? Or has the school shooter cemented itself into American culture and for some sick reason ill kids want to copycat others?.
If it happened all over I would agree bullying is a main cause.
I dunno the answers just attempting to understand why.

SANTA FE, Texas (KTRK) -- Authorities tell Eyewitness News that 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtzis was the gunman in the deadly shooting that unfolded Friday morning inside Santa Fe High School. Pagourtzis was arrested, and authorities say he is a student at the high school. The school went on lockdown at 8 a.m. shortly after reports of shots being fired on campus. Between eight to 10 people were killed. Authorities have not given a specific number on the amount of injuries. A person of interest has also been detained. Bomb technicians were at a home in Galveston County about four miles away from the scene of the shooting.
suposedly bombs found at the school and possibly other areas

Amazing...the bodies aren't even cold and the right wing is already trying to make political points.



This was the first political point attempted to be made in the thread and it wasn't right leaning. You need to get over yourself.


Sorry, I forgot to include the link.

It is alot deeper then that. Wasn't there a school shooting in texas the other day that was thwarted. Maybe this shooting was "them" trying again. By them i mean that there is someone or somthing behind alot of these shootings. Maybe mk ultra or demon possession or something.

So we have:
1. Guns are the problem
2. Pharmaceuticals are the problem
3. The media is the problem

When do we get around to blaming the killers?


Damn, again agreeing with you. Spooky.

It's a very complex problem with lots of blame to go around. But until we are ready to talk sensibly about this and look at all angles, it will continue. Example would be to bring up video games. The flack you get from that, it worse than if you blame guns alone. I think with parenting being phoned in, religion being demonized, family values eroded, violence being applauded, lack of training with firearms to include proper storage, and the list goes on. All these were thought of when the question was asked,"what's different now, than in 1980?" the reason that question is relevant, is we didn't really have these issues back then, but had guns, had bad people.

But those with something invested, tend to cling to their defense and not budge on any part of the topic. (me included with guns)

At some point, we will all need to figure this out, it's a real issue, and it's primarily a US issue. (even though I hate to say it like that)

I feel you have nailed it dead on. As I write this
the police spokesman is talking about this
young shooter. He said the young man wanted
to commit suicide.

I would ask everyone to cast your judgements
to the wind for now. Do not seperate yourself
from mourning with humanity.

Until guns are only allowed to be held by the military and law enforcement, we will continue to have numerous individual and mass shootings.

OK, where's the political point there? He's not waving a sign around touting the 2nd amendment, he seems to be there as a local resident supporting those looking for support. By that judgement, those speaking to the media are trying to score political points by exercising their 1st Amendment rights.

Again, get over yourself.
