The title of a recently released Yahoo! article is “2 DEAD at Nevada middle school; witness says STUDENT shot teacher” (Web-site/URL: http://www.cnn.com/2013/10/21/justice/nevada-middle-school-shooting/index.html?hpt=hp_t1).
“A student opened fire at a Nevada middle school on Monday (October 21, 2013), KILLING a staff member and WOUNDING two students, police said”.
“The “student/SUSPECT” in the shooting is also dead, Washoe County School District Police Chief Mike Mieras said”. This guy is a SUSPECT.
According to Tom Robinson, “deputy chief of the Reno Police Department”, “As you can imagine, the best description is CHAOS“, as if we need ANY MORE “chaos” in the world today. “IT’S TOO EARLY TO SAY whether he was TARGETING SPECIFIC PEOPLE or just going on an INDISCRIMINATE shooting spree“, both of which are EQUALLY DISTURBING/ALARMING/UNSETTLING.
“A 13-year-old student told the Reno Gazette-Journal that he saw a student fire a shot at a teacher”. “We were by the basketball court and we heard a POP, like A LOUD POP and EVERYBODY WAS SCREAMING and then THE TEACHER CAME TO INVESTIGATE“. This “teacher” was KILLED. “The student was pointing a gun at the teacher after the teacher told him to put it down and the student FIRED A SHOT AT the teacher and the teacher FELL, and EVERYBODY RAN AWAY” AS EXPECTED (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI). “everybody ran away” IN FEAR.
“Authorities released few details about the incident, but city officials said in a statement that the suspect was “NEUTRALIZED. Law enforcement ASSURES that the school and community are secured at this time“. Can we TRUST the “authorities?”
“In a statement”, Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval said: “I was DEEPLY SADDENED to learn of the horrific shooting at Sparks Middle School this morning (October 21, 2013). My administration is receiving regular updates and the Nevada Highway Patrol is assisting at the scene. Kathleen (Nevada First Lady Kathleen TEIPNER) and I extend our thoughts and prayers to the victims and those affected by these TRAGIC events“. We must repeat the word “tragic”. Also, this is coming out of the mouth of A REPUBLICAN? Keep in mind that most Republicans are LIFETIME NRA MEMBERS like SARAH PALIN who used former Rep. GABBY GIFFORDS for “target practice” SHORTLY BEFORE GIFFORDS WAS ALMOST KILLED (Web-site/URL: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-20027918-503544.html).
“The shooting comes months after a gunman (Adam Lanza) KILLED 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, IGNITING NATIONWIDE DEBATE over gun violence and school safety“. Unfortunately, this “nationwide debate” HAS YET TO PRODUCE FRUITFUL/ RESULTS.
Finally, “The mother of a student killed in December’s (December 14, 2013) shooting in Newtown said Monday’s (October 21 2013) shooting was reminder of the need to find solutions to keep students safe”. More specifically, Nicole Hockley (mother of FIVE-year-old DYLAN HOCKLEY who was KILLED in the Newtown massacre), said: “THE UNTHINKABLE has happened yet again, this time in Sparks, Nevada. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families and the children of Sparks Middle School, who today (October 21, 2013) came face to face with VIOLENCE THAT NO CHILD SHOULD EVER EXPERIENCE. It’s moments like this that demand that we UNITE (?) as parents to find common sense solutions that keep our children — all children — safe, and prevent these tragedies from happening again and again“. Is anyone “united” these days?
