    Do not allow the NY Times nor ABC, CBS, NBS, or CNN FAKE NEWS to brainwash you.
    It is well known that there are budding psychos in every city. Kids can become very confused and psycho and like most would probably shoot himself first because he was feeling rejected by others as a result of psychological issues which can manifest and grow during the most stressful times in life....And counseling is often not known to those who suffer. But no-matter what the psyco-mindset is at the time (these killer or suicidal) persons are well known by the Democrat Law-makers that they are confused and even very bi-polar manic depressed psycho people in every city.
    What is not known by most is that these Democrat Law-makers are aware of the psychos in each city, which is why the Democrat Law-Makers voted to protect their own Government Buildings with AR-15's to create the necessary deterrent that prevents the psychos in each city from attacking Government Buildings.
    But at the same time, these insidious Democrat Law-Makers also voted to NOT protect our children's schools like Gov Buildings.
    The Democrat Pushed Law is called: THE GUN-FREE SCHOOL ZONES ACT. And it is responsible for all the mass shootings since Sandy Hook.
    This decision to take away the 2nd Amendment Right of all schoolchildren communicated to all "Psycho-shooters" in all the Democrat Disarmed school areas in each City - that children's schools are target rich, easy access, killing fields.......which is why we never see Democrats shot in their own Government buildings.....But we often see out children shot in their own schools.
    All Parents should begin Home "Teaching" their children until the "capable adults" in our schools are well trained and conceal carrying to protect our schoolchildren.....just as the Democrats force us to buy AR 15's to protect their own Government Buildings. WHY? Because this creates the missing deterrent to school-shootings.
    You cannot just weaken or take the capable rifles from good citizens......Because then the Government will become Tyrannical like China, North Korea, and Russia..... Now Venezuela.
    The total sum of all mass shootings is nothing compared to a Tyrannical Government disarming, then enslaving, then Democide !!!!!
    It is much better to study before expressing a Feeble-Minded observation on USclip like "Wow, he was a Hero".
    Because he was not. A real Hero will stand up against a real enemy......Not a confused 18yo who is trying to hide a huge shot-gun in class. It is more likely that he wanted to get caught so that he could get the attention that he needs.
    It is the Democrats, Libs, and those like them that should be caught and put under probation for 4 years with psych analysis.
    What kind of psychos would arm their own work place.....while forcing children's schools to be disarmed ? The Answer is: DEMOCRATS.
    And if you study your History, you will learn that Hitler did the same thing. Then after children were shot......Hitler said to Germany "Turn in your guns".
    And if you are not completely Feeble Minded.....You know what happened Next !

    I graduated from highschool in 1984, and this crap didn't start happening until later. Teachers and parents need to come up with better ways to deal with school bullying so this crap can stop.

      unarmed citizens in general should keep their wits about them when dealing with law enforcement. its not news to anybody that you're at risk to be killed when encountering law enforcement, it sucks, but its the reality we live in. I wish i didnt hafta lock my door at night, but there are twisted minds in the world that want to break in. I wish people could feel safe behaving normally when around law enforcement, but its not the reality we live in. DON'T BECOME A MARTYR BECAUSE YOU'LL END UP AS A STATISTIC

    Good thing the coach Keanon was there to disarm and embrace him!!! How human this coach was. If cops showed up, total opposite would have happened and a life lost. Cops should use this in their training once they disarm a person, and be human. But I'm sure they still threw him to the floor and and aim their guns at him. Even tho he was already disarmed and someone ( coach Keanon) with self control and a authority figure had control of the situation.

    Darn we some hugging MFers. I thought black folks were some thugs and leaches on the system. Y as black folk we so open to others considering the way we have been treated by all? Black people have a beautiful spirit. We do have some lost brothers and sisters that r casualties of war. We need to HUG and pray for them. Lift em up so they can fight. We dont battle against flesh and blood but principalities. He didn't beat the brakes off that kid he embraced him. He trusted another white student with a loaded weapon LOL. That some xmen ProfessorX type shhh. His super power is hugging. That takes alotta heart and thats what america and the world needs for change. If we all hugged one another indiscriminately the world would be a better place. We need to start a hugging movement HUG IT OUT AMERICA#
