    I just watched the body camera footage that was released and would like to say thank you to those officers who acted swiftly to prevent further loss of life. That is what I wish to see every time this happens (and it will keep happening)

      Well it wouldn't if they'd stop these ops trying to get guns banned.

      @Lori Garcia just to see if I understand you correctly, are you saying this wouldn’t be happening if some people weren’t trying to get guns banned completely? If you are saying that then I complete disagree

      @Lori Garcia It’s not about banning guns, it’s gun control. You know, like driving a car, we have speed limits and seatbelts, etc. This is why your vote matters. You vote republican, you are part of the problem not the solution. Vote blue down every ballot.

      Kevin literally means the body camera footage just got released, NOT the school's camera footage of the killer shooting the door's windows out.

    Hey, would the news media please acknowledge the shooter got in the side door, not because it was unlocked, but by shooting out the glass to gain entry. They make it sound as if the doors were merely left unlocked and she just opened the doors at will. Come on media, cut out all the dramatization and provide some real facts.

    She got in through a side door which was locked, but she shot through both glass doors entry ways. We need to harden our school security.

      I ran out of room in my comment above. I suppose there is a limit of characters. Sadly, there are ways to get around these sophisticated security systems, but I will not disclose such information. I admire the quick and decisive actions of the Nashville Police and all law enforcement agencies involved. They most certainly saved many other lives.

    So many retired city, county, state and federal LEO’s like myself that would gladly sit vigilant at any private or public school, synagogue, church, or corporate office buildings to prevent tragedy from happening, but no one wants to pay, so sadly we continue to pay with our lives.

      There should be a program with federal and state funding for the security of schools. Lots of combat Vets who also wouldn't be afraid to take someone down

    • Tracy Johnson
      Tracy Johnson 2 months ago

      @Jenn H There is. I live in a rural county in East Tennessee. EVERY public school in our county is staffed by an active duty sheriffs deputy. They're called school resource officers (SROs) and positions are paid for through federal and state grants as well as county budget. Yes they're armed.
      The SROs are there during school hours and at after school events. During school breaks, they go back on patrol.
      Our schools have all entry doors locked with intercom system to get in first door. Then you show ID and better be on approved list or have an appointment.
      The Nashville school did have doors locked, he just shot them out. However, had an SRO or private security been on campus he wouldn't have gotten far.
      I guess private schools need to up tuition to pay for private armed guards.
      For systems without funding for full time sheriffs department, there are MANY former military members already drawing retirement that probably wouldn't cost as much to employ. For those who got out before their 20, state or even county jobs count those years toward pay grade and toward state retirement.

    This is a problem within society now. There has always been a large number of firearms in the United States, yet school shootings are something fairly new to the scene.
    Something has changed in society that is creating a situation where these people think they need to go out on these mass shootings.
    Until someone identifies and treats the true psychological problem causing this way of thinking, we will experience violent episodes like this.

    • Wayne Dimirsky
      Wayne Dimirsky 2 months ago

      Exactly. When I was in high school in the 80's, kids brought their hunting rifles to school and had them hanging in the back windows of the trucks. We didn't have school shootings and you never heard of them happening other places. There were tons of firearms back then as well. Something in society has changed to make people think that they can do these things. Probably being soft on crime and not allowing parents to discipline their children so kids have no respect for authority or anyone else for that matter.

  • rand mayfield
    rand mayfield 2 months ago +8

    Unfortunately we're going to have to get used to this because it's not going away. There are an infinite number of ways to get hold of a gun and then use it in the worst ways. I remember back to the first school shooting of my awareness back in the 70's where a girl open fired on a school that was across the street from her house killing a few people. When asked why she did it she just said she didn't like Mondays. Where did she get the rifle? It was a birthday present from her father. She later said that she wanted a camera and she got a gun instead.
    How do you even begin to stop something like that? It self generated from a set of odd circumstances and then just happened. The girl is still in a mental institution after all these years, her victims? They're all dead.

    Itd really be nice for everyone to get a damn clue that ALL major issues like this start early and at home. Wheter it be straight up physical/sexual abuse that goes unreported or ignored, or emotional and psychological issues that aren't addressed. It's not all always on the parents though, many times they do ask for and seek help but they will be ignored or (and this part is really disgusting) they don't have the proper insurance or financial requirements and there are almost no social programs to help (not enough anyway). The whole country should be ashamed of this crap.

  • Lorraine Boyd
    Lorraine Boyd 2 months ago +2

    It is essential for every school to have armed guards. The shooter almost went to another school, but they had security. No interaction at all, but a tragedy at that location was thwarted. The mall was another possibility, but the shooter thought too many people carried concealed weapons.

    Safety is EVERYONE'S JOB. If teachers and admin aren't trained to perform standardized procedures, then safety protocols do not work. Police are often not on scene for several minutes after reporting occurs. All personnel must act in unison and as trained.

    My condolences to the victims’ families. Instead of arming teachers and staff in the schools, it is better to teach/show students about sense of community and sense of responsibility towards themselves first, then towards people around them. I’m sure that if you study these school shooting cases, you will find the shooter(s) to be isolated or distant from family and friends.

    There’s not one day that anybody in charge of a school should have their guard down. This is happening way too often. A plan needs to be in place now. Install cameras but monitor them around the clock. Make sure all doors are locked and secured. Speak to local law enforcement about patrolling multiple times in the day. Invest in armed security. It’s going to take everyone in every school in America to make this a priority. Keep the conversation alive with those running the school. If it doesn’t matter to you as a parent it won’t matter to them.

      For people is easy why they security didnt stop ✋ why they don’t have the same power as before the laws most of the time in this day are in favor of bad people. Sometimes it look easy to be a security or police but remember they are humans with family too . They have feelings like the rest of us . Plus as u see in news every time when police arrest thieves the law made them to paid so in few hours or minutes are out of the jail . The laws against bad people is to weak weak weak THE USA 🇺🇸 SHOULD LEARN FROM EL SALVADOR. Plus as a family we need to speak and look for help if in our family is someone with mental issues. Don’t be embarrassed 😳 if u have some family members with addiction or mental issues look for help . We can save lives if everyone works together as a community as a country as a brother and sister . The object doesn’t work by itself if work because someone used . They need to be focus in mental issues.

      @West Coast Todd Gender dysphoria is a medical condition recognized by major medical organizations such as the American Psychiatric Association and the World Health Organization. While it is true that gender dysphoria is classified as a mental health condition, it is not accurate to say that being transgender is a mental illness. Gender dysphoria is a condition where a person experiences distress due to a discrepancy between their gender identity and their assigned sex at birth. It is not a choice or a lifestyle, but rather a fundamental aspect of a person's identity. It's important to treat individuals with gender dysphoria with respect and understanding, just like any other medical condition.

      This could have easily been prevented with bulletproof glass. My elementary, middle, and high schools...all doors were locked during the day and no one was permitted entry unless you had a verifiable reason to be there. Schools should also have alarm systems so if there are any signs of forced entry, it automatically sounds and alerts law enforcement.

    if you have kids, friends or family to whom might be distancing themselves from you. reach out to them, let them know you care. Go to them and let them see they are not alone in this world. A persons emotions, their mental health can bring alot of pain, not just to themselves but to others.
    we can't keep ignoring the signs, we can't keep saying "it will be ok", "things will get better." because it won't. We've hit the breaking point where armed security is needed in our schools and congress feels the need to ensure the safety of our kids data and wellbeing on social media then anything else. We can't fix gun control, we can't fix anything and our gov can't keep US citizens from killing US citizens without the introduction of more guns and force. Too many situations and events happening that the US is just a knot on string and we think adding more knots will be enough to turn it into a ball, but eventually no one will want to play with us or take us seriously. we've become a joke.

      As a former teacher, none of our schools have proper security, i.e., fencing, resource officers, because the ivy league legislators have been pilfering fm the edu budget since kennedy was president, at the fed & state level.
      We voted in the Lottery to reduce property taxes & fund edu but the ivy league legislator gave edu $1B of the $40B they've collected over 20 yrs in my state.

    There was a scare at my sons school a week ago when a false report came in about a school shooter. I’m always glad to see a police or two in the parking lot of my sons private school, also they keep all entrances locked and multiple staff that conceal carry. But of course I always pray that God protects my boy and that nothing like this ever happens. Also they do drills often and when they were locked down my sons teacher said all the students did a fantastic job.

    This is so preventable. Really sad to see it keep happening and no action being taken to prevent further school shootings. Place an armed guard from either the police or military at every school. Then there shouldn't every a mass shooting again as the guard can be there to take down the shooter in seconds

    Was one of the three school employees that were in their 60's at this school back when she was a student?And possibly responsible for something happening to her or for her being or converting to be trans and her committing to surgery or chemical castration or something before she was out of even the 6th grade.
    And she felt forever harmed once she got old enough to understand what these people did to her body before she was old enough to fully understand?
    Was finding out she could now never have a family of her own and a normal life just to much for her to live with anymore?
    There are some hard questions that need to be answered about why she was so made at people in this school. That she was willing to die to get revenge of some kind.
    Something evil happened at this school years ago that brought this shooting on.
    These are the types of questions that need to be answered.
    What caused the rage???

    When you need police they will not be there. That phrase is very well known and once again was appropriate. Had there been several armed teachers they could have saved lives. Gun free zones create sitting ducks for these deranged people. If you're a teacher anywhere in America right now do you really want to take the chance of being in a situation with an active shooter and you're unarmed and unable to defend yourself and the children?

      @Charles Smallins These schools have budgets. They are funded by local, state, and federal governments. If we got billions to send to other countries, there is no excuse not to have the funds to protect the students. Their budgets are also guided by the total amount of students. That’s why he said “if you are large enough to have a school, then you are large enough to have security”

    20 years ago I was civilian legally armed at school events. City Police could not stay on site. This was the compromise. For free admission, soda/coffee I went to events. Walked around early, moved around few times during evening. Not 6 people knew what I was actually doing. Today if allowed. I would volunteer to take a few days a week wondering the school grounds, building. Doing minor cleanup, repair but main focus keeping kids safe. For dang cheap.
