The title of a recently released CBS News article is “Student and teen gunman DEAD in Oregon school shooting” (Web-site/URL:http://www.cbsnews.com/news/gunfire-reported-at-oregon-high-school/).
“A STUDENT victim is DEAD and the male gunman is ALSO DECEASED after shots were fired Tuesday morning (June 10, 2014) at Reynolds High School in Troutdale, Ore., east of Portland, Troutdale Police Chief Scott Anderson said”.
“A law enforcement official tells CBS News (that) the shooter was also A STUDENT “.
“Officers responded to the school shortly after 8 a.m. (June 10 2014). Police said the SUSPECT was found dead in a school bathroom, slumped on a toilet and that he likely KILLED HIMSELF “.
“The situation is now STABILIZED, according to police” THANKFULLY.
“Police spokesman Sgt. Carey Kaer said police used a robot with a camera to investigate and discovered the SUSPECT was dead. Kaer also said the SHOOTER was a male teen”. This reinforces RICHARD MARTINEZ‘s claim again that TOO MUCH attention is being given to the KILLER and NOT enough is being said about the VICTIM(s) (Web-site/URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KyZyB5VjhE).
(Speaking) at a brief news conference Tuesday (June 10, 2014)“, Anderson said: “I’m VERY, VERY SORRY for the family and for all the students and everyone who will be impacted by this TRAGIC incident“. This is the latest “sorry” to come AFTER a rampage.
According to Reynolds School District Superintendent Linda Florence, “(speaking) at the same news conference”, “This is a VERY TRAGIC day, one that I had HOPED would NEVER, EVER be part of my experience“. EMPTY RHETORIC.
According to Troutville Mayor Doug Doust, “This has been a VERY UNSETTLING day for our precious city…. My heart goes out to all the families“. More EMPTY RHETORIC.
“KOIN reports a student inside the 2,800-student school tweeted just after 9 a.m. that while some students had been evacuated, “MOST” were on lockdown. One student reportedly told a parent the shooting began in the school’s gymnasium, though police have not been able to confirm specific details”.
“Freshman Daniel DeLong, 15, said while waiting after the shooting that he saw a physical education teacher at the school with A BLOODIED SHIRT “. “I’m A LITTLE SHAKEN UP. I’m just WORRIED“, AS EXPECTED (Web-site/URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI). “He said he was texting friends to make sure they were all okay”. “It just, like, happened SO FAST, you know?”
“Freshman Morgan Rose, 15, said she was hunkered down in a locker room with another student and two teachers”. “It was SCARY in the moment now knowing everything’s okay“. There’s another expression of FEAR.
Finally, “Following the shooting, President Obama reflected on gun violence in a Tumblr chat Tuesday (June 10 2014), saying, “We’re THE ONLY DEVELOPED COUNTRY WHERE THIS HAPPENS and it happens now ONCE A WEEK. …I mean, our levels of gun violence are OFF THE CHARTS, there’s NO ADVANCED DEVELOPED country on earth that would put up with this“.
“He said one of his biggest regrets during his five-and-a-half years in the White House is “the fact that this society has not been willing to take some basic steps to keep guns of the hands of people who can do just, unbelievable damage“. This is all because of THE NRA.
