  • Colorado Shooting: Demos use memorial service for political stunt - Students Walk Out

    A vigil honoring Colorado high school shooting victim Kendrick Castillo dissolved into protest late Wednesday with some students walking out and others chanting "mental health" when speakers discussed gun control.

    More than 2,000 attended the vigil at STEM School Highlands Ranch High School, as STEM School Highlands Ranch students burst into a spontaneous demonstration, protesting politics and the media.

    Sen. Michael Bennet and Rep. Jason Crow spoke urged support for gun control legislation, prompting students in the crowd to shout out dissenting comments such as "political stunt" and "we are people, not a statement" Ė to applause.

    Thanks for sharing, just goes to show not all young people are willing shills of the gun grabbers on the left who manipulate every tragic event to further their goals, none of which addresses the underlying problem of violence.
    Dispite our best intentions, the system is dysfunctional that intelligence failure is guaranteed.

        Good for the students. Maybe some people will now begin to listen to them. They have a lot to say and the right to say it. They are the ones getting shot at, wounded, and killed.

          They are also the ones doing the shooting, odds are the faculty and the students knew the shooters were a threat, and nobody did a damn thing until the shooting started

            And you know this how?

            It might be true, but then again it may not be.

              When was the last time a shooting occurred and the perpetrators were not someone other students and even some teachers were not intimidated by their behavior leading up to the event?

              People donít just wake up one day and suddenly become mass shooters, people do not fall under the influence of firearms and become murderous fiends.

                Yeah, itís common sense.

                Whenís the last time teachers were surprised about the identity of the shooter?

                  And who would be surprised to find out at least one of the shooters had a history of mental illness which parents either ignored or the courts prevented from committing the adolescent to get the care they needed, and still need, new they will be warehoused in prison and not get any mental health care.
                  I know, I know, everyone has a right to be crazy and to be threat and a bully and a t in a threatening manner, itís their Constitutional right to be insane and a threat to society and nothing can be done until thereís a body count.....so we can blame everyone else.

                    The catch is that for every student with a creepy or threatening vibe that goes on a rampage, you have millions who don't. Spotting the shooter is a lot more complicated than "well that kid looks a little goth-y". It doesn't help that adolescence itself generates symptoms resembling mental illness.

                    Everybody acts like this is a problem with an easy solution and "if we only do this" it'll all be fixed. Unfortunately life is rarely that easy.

                      Who mentioned goth-Y as an example of mental instability? Iím referring to behavior, not fashion.
                      Cruz, the shooter at Parkland had put knives to the throat of at least one other student, had posted numerous threats on social media towards others, that alone should have flagged him.

                          The Parkland shooting was an obvious charlie foxtrot at multiple levels but not all shooters have been that obvious. Most haven't been.

                          Simple question: what is your proposed criteria for institutionalizing a student? If it is an act of violence you won't be collaring every potential shooter. If it is a threatening or unsettling demeanor you'll be institutionalizing half of all teenagers at some point. So what is your bar?

                            I am not sure what criteria is needed, would you say that the current practice of waiting until there are dead students and teachers piled up in the lunch room and hallways is a good system?
                            And to set the record straight the majority school shooters have displayed behavioral tendencies that in the past would have triggered at the minimum an short term in a juvenile detention center where the individual and their families be helped.
                            If that is a draconian approach, consider the alternative.

                              A young person who has exhibited anti social behavior to the extent of holding knives to other students throats, making personal threats on social media, assaults his mother and others would may actually benefit from incarceration before they murder people.
                              I understand that is a radical proposition to some people, having grown up in a period when much less would have resulted in intervention, and having seen lives turned around.
