Anyways, only a few more hours till it’s out of our lives forever. I hope life gets better once we’re gone. I’m sure it will,” Jarrod Ramos purportedly wrote in the back of the 1997 yearbook.

    On Thursday, four journalists and one staff member of the Capital Gazette were murdered in the newspaper’s Annapolis, Maryland, office. While the event was initially widely covered by all major news outlets, the media is likely to quickly move on from the story, just like it did with the Santa Fe High School shooting, because it doesn’t fit the right narrative. (Unlike many of the Parkland students, the Santa Fe students didn’t respond to the tragedy by calling for gun control measures.) That in itself is a shame, not just because there is much to learn from this tragedy, but...

    Marquardt said he wasn’t surprised to hear Ramos identified as the alleged gunman, saying he started harassing the paper and its staff shortly after the 2011 article.

This guy could really hurt us.’ ” Marquardt said he called the Anne Arundel County police about Ramos in 2013, but nothing came of it. He consulted the paper’s lawyers about filing a restraining...
