    Active Shooter - Stoneman Douglas High School (near Coral Springs, FL)

    https://www.nbcmiami.com/news/local/...474078423.html

    Saying 20-30 victims at least -- can't find the gunman.... not good.

    CBS4’s Rick Folbaum was speaking over text message with a student at the school who is hiding in a closet.

    “All of a sudden there was a really loud noise…..people are crying the closet,” the student wrote to him and later asked when police were coming to help them.

    The school was placed on lockdown but around 3 p.m. some students could be seen walking out of the school with their hands up, some in tears.

    Officers are asking people to avoid the area.

    President Donald Trump has been made aware of the school shooting.

    “We are monitoring the situation. Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected,” wrote White House Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Walters.

    Florida Gov. Rick Scott issued a statement on the shooting. At last check, he was on his way to Parkland.

    A person was seen being taken into custody after a shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, Wednesday. One person is officially confirmed dead and multiple people have been injured, according authorities. The extent of the injuries are unknown.
    The person taken into custody near the school matches the description of the suspect who was described as a white male last seen leaving campus in a burgundy shirt.
    Looks like he's in custody now....

    One of the telephone interviews this afternoon was with a kid who knew the shooter. He said the shooter had been talking about 'the purge' the last few days.

    Warning signs that were ignored?

    I suppose there are "some" cats that are useless......but not mine. Maybe (like human children) their personality and work ethic are somewhat a byproduct of their upbringing?

    I know the meme was just supposed to be an attempt at humor - but thoughts and prayers, while obviously not changing the events of what happened or what could happen next time, they do provide some comfort so I wouldn't say they are 'useless'.

    actually cats are pretty useful. they taste great with fried rice and some egg drop soup.
    Architects do it with models.

    The question can be asked what if the teachers were armed as well? Could an armed teacher or teachers have prevented more loss of life?

    Ah yes, the inevitable "the solution to gun violence is more guns" argument.

    I guess that's one way to get Remington out of bankruptcy...
