Welcome Hattie. I can see and agree with your POV.
Now, there's no way I can cite the reference, but I recall reading that after one of the GR interviews, that the
unnamed grandparents of one child were there to hug him in appreciation.
But, the media chose not to show such a personal moment.
I find that laughably unbelievable, for one that the media considered this too sensitive for photographing.
For two, that the grandparents would even be showing up as he is being shown live on camera.
For three, that the media was so incurious as to neglect to track down the bus driver who allegedly led them
to safety, or how, (on a bus, on foot, abandoning the bus she was driving, what?, what?)
For four, not bothering to find out who the man is yelling at the kids?
For five, not asking him why he wouldn't lead them next door to the Fire Department teeming with the many
vehicles and police cars rather than bring them indoors knowing SOMEONE would need to know where these
children were, following a shooting. That merely calling parents might cause confusion for those who are trying
to account for the whereabouts of each child.
Because what then? The parents should call the school or whomever and say, you can stop looking for my child I picked them up at a man's house? I
doubt this would occur to them to do.
It is ridiculous that he instead states he has the bus driver call the bus company to get their parents numbers and makes six phone calls. Well,
maybe the bus company had their parents phone numbers and maybe
they didn't. Maybe some of these kids who were supposedly there didn't ride a bus but were driven to school by parents!
