"Whoever’s trying to kill me isn’t getting the job done. But one day, I’m going to punch that f___r in the face."
I don't even know what to say. It's one thing to shoot innocent people, but to go to a school and kill children? This world makes me sick to my stomach sometimes. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved, but especially those that lost a child today.
How sad. My daughter covers education in D.C. and tweeted about this a short time ago. What is going on in this world?
Supposedly a father of a student
...2nd person might be in custody.
Holy Shit. Come here to the board for a Ferguson update and get this. Puts things in perspective.
"an entire kindergarten class may have been gun downed"
"a full kindergarten class is still unaccounted for"
Cant understand, dont think I ever will understand these people.
It's unbelievable. I can't even fathom how big of a piece of garbage this shooter is/was to shoot innocent children. My girlfriend is an elementary school teacher and she deals with some crazy parents on a day-to-day basis, but I never considered a parent doing something like this. I mean, no matter how bad your life is going, how the hell do you shoot kids?
Prayers with the victims and the families.
Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
Makes me sick to my stomach. The world can be on very scary place. Prayers go out to those children & their families. Definitely puts things in perspective, as well.
How in the hell did he get into the school with all that ammo and firepower.
Thoughts and Prayers go out to the families of those kids.
A person has to be severely mentally ill to do something like this.
I have one upvote left, and I am not afraid to use it!!!
This makes me furious... Prayers for the families involved.
What a huge piece of trash this shooter was, glad I'm using past tense.
Praying for all those involved.
I don't think security details or the school faculty ever imagined somebody would actually come and shoot the children.
Have to think there is some strange story behind all of this. This is not the "usual" school shooting. Why does an adult go into an elementary school to kill children? As someone else noted, I have to speculate that severe mental illness will end up being a component in all of this.
“We’re doing things we couldn’t imagine,” says safety Stephen Obeng-Agyapong. “But we’re doing them together.”
2nd shooter taken into custody.
School administration complacency. Very sad day in America. Too many lately.
"I like your head, it's a good look." - James Franklin, to a bald reporter asking a question.
i think i'm going to puke.
Why not? Fact is this shit happens. How could someone waltz in, with what I assume to be a semi automatic rifle, unnoticed.
If that is true, this gets even more strange. Why in the hell would multiple people do this?
He had two hand guns. What is school administrator going to do against an armed man like that?
That could explain how the scums got in, via diversion.
Um, even if there was a security detail, do you not think someone with semi-automatic rifles can probably get past them?
People blaming the school here need to get a grip.
Supposedly 1 of the shooters supposedly came in full military camo, bulletproof vest...
Attacker is a 20 year old man, with ties to the school. 1 of the guns is a .223 calibar rifle.
If over 100 shots were fired, like has been reported, he had to have more than that or the cops took a detour to get there. Bottom line this sucks.
They need to make it damn near impossible to get into these schools w/o being seen.
