    Parkland Florida School Shooting

    I have not seen a thread started. 16 dead.

    ETA NPR link as they seem to do news the best IMO.

    Broward Sheriff just said 17 dead, more in trauma units.

    Yeah, sucks. Suspect in custody, which makes it a little different than most mass shootings. I was hoping to see the number stay much lower. AR-15 "style" rifle reportedly used, but you know how that goes.

    Prayers out for the families, the wounded, and all involved. As a father of two little ones, one that I drop off at school each day, it just breaks my heart.

    Heard on NPR, suspect was not currently enrolled in school.

    NPR also said a Florida congressman had recently visited the school and when interviewed, said, "Security seemed great." Probably BS news noise, but reporting so hindsight is 20/20.

    Speechless. Knew the area well when I worked down that way. Tragic, senseless loss of life.

    TV report said shooter was a former student who was expelled for disciplinary reasons.

    I had a pretty shitty high school experience and not the best home life but I still never even considered killing anyone. And I was in high school when columbine happened. WTF?

    We need a law against this sort of thing.
    Critical thinking, done in the absence of context and relevance, can only produce something useful to someone with an overactive imagination.
    Knowing and understanding is not the same thing.
    Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.
