Shootings
« on: December 14, 2012, 12:04:49 PM »
instead of starting a new thread every time there is a random shooting of innocent people in public, I just figured I'd start a new topic.

To get things started: Newtown Connecticut elementary school, about 45 minutes from me.   http://www.ctnow.com/news/hc-police-responding-to-incident-in-newtown-20121214,0,455352.story  The newpaper just tweeted that a source confirmed "children among the dead"  God this is just awful
"I possess a device, in my pocket, that is capable of accessing the entirety of information known to man.  I use it to look at pictures of cats and get in arguments with strangers."

This really has me upset. At an elementary school. Keep thinking about former students and coworkers lying on the floor dead and I know others in education are dealing with that reality right now...

So sad...

I really wish the media wouldn't go crazy reporting this, but they will... and the next twisted lunatic out there will know he can go out in a blaze of media glory by killing a bunch of innocent people.

20 fucking kids, 8 adults...fucking horrific.

Two of the adults are legally license to carry a concealed pistol but prevented from doing so by stupid stupid gun zone laws. Just one of them could have saved a lot of lives.

Agreed Perspective.

It's okay though - the solution is for everyone to have guns...in schools...One of the stupidest fucking things I've ever read.

Don't bother to respond Steve on this.  I won't agree with you.  Period. 


In near tears here over this one.  Keep seeing flashes of my own classroom and students.

Stop it. Seriously.

I know a LOT of people are quick to make this about gun control, but I don't think the political issue is the one we need to talk about right now. Whoever did this is mentally NOT well, and these sort of people need help.

Yea - I'm not even mad at the gunman.  Not at all.  Felt the same way about the linebacker in KC a few weeks ago.  Just feel its a huge tragedy.  You know the man was not well....A failure of our mental health system - which has been losing funding steadily for decades - but still a failure.

Same goes for Aurora, Congressman Giffner (sp), Oregon, Wisconsin...I could go on...

I've had a pit in my stomach all afternoon trying not to cry at work. I don't think I've felt this way after hearing something in the news since 9/11.

Agreed. Been busy with an urgent task but now it's done and there's not much I can do without coming back to thinking about this. So sad.

Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

I have been in meetings and stuff most of the day and my wife was texting me details.  I literally had to stop her.  I wanted to puke.  I can't imagine what those families are going through.
