Shootings and guns are big in the news right now, that's why we're hearing so many stories. At any other time this likely would have stayed in the local news.
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
I never understand how theses gangs use the word "respect", when its the last thing they understand.
lol, they understand fear, and power. that is all. they will talk crap in your face, threaten you, but as soon as they see gun in your hand, they change their tune 180*. or just run away.
don't expect them to have any respect for you otherwise.
they don't really get much time to learn about it either, few of them gets to be 30 years old, on the streets, they have a lot more chances to live longer in jail, than on the streets.and worst thing they know it full well, when they join gangs, they just don't care.their rap albums with names like "get rich or die trying" is how they see life. most shootings in usa are gang related, most of the casualties are rival gang members, or their own, during "clean the books" events.
i personaly don't want to see less of those shootings, i personaly have no problem with them killing each other.
Well, even if it was two guys having a gunfight at the school.... I'm glad that it was hopped on so quickly by the authorities. I'm willing to bet the parents who have students there were relieved to find out it was a fight and their kids are probably safe.
Yes, I am a cynical and jaded jacknape. I try to see all three sides of the coin- do you?
Never forget that only the weak fish swim with the stream, and a lie travels half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes

Me? I'm not replying to another thing you say on any post. Count yourself lucky.
It's not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me... It's all the rabbit poop you stumble over on your way down...

well, to be fair, it did happened in school, so it can be called school shooting. it was not that type of shootings we usually call school shooting. that is another story.
we can call it school shoot out, since both partys were shooting at each other. not just killing eveyone in sight.
same way as 2mph bumper tap is called a car accedent\collision too.
