  • A Tale Of Two School Shootings

    12/13/2021 4:05:02 AM PST · by Kaslin · 19 replies ^ | December 13, 2021 | Scott Morefield
    In early October, an 18-year-old Arlington, Texas student named Timothy George Simpkins was given a $75,000 bond and released from jail after allegedly shooting and injuring three students and a teacher at Timberview High School. His lawyer, a civil rights attorney named Kim T. Cole, claims the case isn’t a “standard-issue school shooting.” Why? Mainly because, apparently, bullying drove him to it. Here’s the New York Post’s description of how things went down: The fight [between Simpkins and a 15-year-old fellow student] was broken up and the two students calmed down, but then Simpkins pulled out a firearm from his...
  • The Signs Weren't Missed, They Were Ignored

    As has been the case with so many other school shootings over several years, last week's murder spree at Oakland High School in suburban Detroit might have been avoided if actions had been taken in the face of several obvious warning signs. Ethan Crumbley, 15, is charged with murdering four of his fellow students and wounding with intent to kill seven others. He has also been charged with terrorism. There were a series of signs leading up to this tragedy -- as there usually are -- that should have alerted people that Crumbley was a serious threat. He had displayed...

    The parents of accused Michigan school shooter Ethan Crumbley are now on the run from police, just hours after a prosecutor announced involuntary manslaughter charges against them and revealed stunning details about the murder weapon that was a Christmas gift for the 15-year-old, whom police say shot dead four students after penning a disturbing note saying 'thoughts won't stop, help me.' Police have issued a 'be on the lookout alert' for James and Jennifer Crumbley, who were charged Friday with four counts of involuntary manslaughter in connection with Tuesday's deadly shooting. The charge carries a sentence of up to 15...

    At least 60 Michigan schools have been forced to temporarily close as a result of copycat threats in the wake of the shooting in Oxford Township, Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said Thursday. Just days after a 15-year-old boy at Oxford High School was charged in the fatal shootings of four students and the injuries of eight others, Bouchard stated that at least 100 instances of direct threats or threatening social media posts have surfaced throughout the state. This includes a 12-year-old who threatened to "shoot up" his school....

    A student identified among the victims of Tuesday’s shooting at Oxford High School reportedly sacrificed his life during the incident, according to witnesses. Student witnesses say that 16-year-old Tate Myre was shot while attempting to disarm the 15-year-old suspect, Ethan Crumbley, during the shooting, according to Newsweek. Myre later succumbed to his injuries. A star running back for the Oxford Wildcats football team, Myre received praise from his team on Twitter, who said he was a “great young man.” “Tate was on varsity since freshman year and was an honor student. Tate was a great young man with a bright...

    Accused Michigan high school shooter Ethan Crumbley was hit Wednesday with adult first-degree murder, terrorism and assault charges, prosecutors said. Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald said at a press conference Wednesday that her office is also weighing charges against the teen’s parents, who purchased the gun for the 15-year-old. “When the shooting started yesterday, the students and teachers and staff in the school had to act quickly to save their own lives,” McDonald told reporters.

    Updated 6:53 p.m. WINSTON-SALEM — A suspect was taken into custody Wednesday after one student was fatally shot at a North Carolina high school, officials said.

The injured student was taken to a local hospital, where he died, Thompson said. The Forsyth County Sheriff's Office announced on its Twitter page...

    Kip Kinkel, who killed his parents before going on a shooting rampage at his Oregon high school in 1998, killing two classmates and injuring 25 more, has given his first news interview, telling HuffPost he feels "tremendous, tremendous shame and guilt." Kinkel, now 38, is serving a de facto life sentence at the Oregon State Correctional Institution. He spoke with the news site by phone for about 20 hours over 10 months. He said he felt guilty not just for what he did as a 15-year-old suffering from then-undiagnosed paranoid schizophrenia, but the effect his crime has had on other...

    My daughter Meadow was murdered in the Parkland school shooting. I haven’t smiled since. I don’t think I’ll ever smile again. But last week, the Broward County School Board demanded my psychiatric records — among those of other Parkland parents — to prove that I’ve suffered. That might shock you. It shouldn’t. It did not surprise me at all. I’ve seen what happens when politically correct “anti-racist” ideology replaces human decency in a public school system. If Joe Biden is elected president, you’ll find out too. After my daughter was murdered, I wanted to know everything that went wrong. And...

    DENVER (Reuters) - A Colorado transgender teenager who admitted to taking part in a shooting at a Denver-area charter school last year that left one student dead and eight others wounded was sentenced on Friday to life in prison plus an additional 38 years. Alec McKinney, 17, was sentenced in Douglas County District Court for the shooting at the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) School in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, on May 7, 2019. A 19-year-old co-defendant in the shooting, Devon Erickson, has pleaded not guilty to murder and other charges and faces trial in September. In February, McKinney pleaded...

    Two years ago today, my daughter Meadow and sixteen others were murdered in the Parkland school shooting. For the families of the victims, it was an unspeakable tragedy. But for others, it was an incredible political opportunity. The shooting propelled a handful of shrill student activists to fame. The most prominent one, David Hogg, later mused, “We really only remember a few hundred people, if that many, out of the billions that have ever lived. Is that what I was destined to become?”

    Shortly after the murders at the Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, California, just north of Los Angeles, the news coverage faltered and died away. I and others speculated something in the facts about the case did not fit the current media narrative in the push to further infringe on Second Amendment rights. California has some of the most restrictive laws on gun ownership, sale, possession, and carry in the United States. A clue to the lack of coverage: the police did not announce the model or make of gun. It was not an AR15, as that would have been...

    Police in the central California city of Fresno were searching Monday for suspects and trying to determine a motive for the killing of four people at a backyard party and the wounding of six as dozens were watching football on TV. Fresno Police Lt. Bill Dooley said “unknown suspects” sneaked into the backyard at about 6 p.m. Sunday and fired into the crowd. Fresno Deputy Police Chief Michael Reid told the Fresno Bee newspaper and the KSEE/KGPE TV stations that 10 people were shot and that three were found dead in the backyard . . .
