who knows what kinda damage would occur.
I am not going to take a shot at a pun.
really fired off his load and emptied the clip on that one. We're getting some real rapid fire responses here.
There have been a few other incidents at schools outside of Ohio since 1970, I'd wager.
Rob was calling back to that, that's all.
If it happened in Austin, he'd have been able to do the same thing.
Only in Ohio would only work if an infantry platoon started clearing the classrooms with gunfire.
I thought for sure there'd be a NFT: "My child was just shot at school, what should I do? thread" by now.
In all seriousness, though. Any updates on the wounded?
Hope they all pull through.
has died at the hospital. 2 others of the remaining 4 are in critical condition.
and wasn't shooting randomly.
according to kids from the school.
Eerily similar to the VT shooter's pictures.
looking at his surroundings, I'd say the kid was in some pretty dreary location. Bare walls, metal frame institutional style bed......very small room. Almost like he was in a dormitory for troubled youth.
pretty sure he's drawing some conclusions based on the pictures above.
Perhaps this is yankfan?
some pics are blocked at work, so I can't even tell there are supposed to be pictures....
Apparently, it's always the nice quiet kids. From CNN:
|[Updated 1:19 p.m. ET] A student at Chardon High School said that T.J. Lane, the suspect in Monday's shooting, "was a nice guy" who he never suspected would shoot anyone.
“He just came from a really broken down home and he was living with his grandparents," Evan Erasmus, a senior at the school told CNN. "He was more of a quiet type of kid. He was really nice, though, if you did talk to him.”
Erasmus said that Lane and some of the victims "used to be friends" but more in middle school and early high school.
“He was one of the nicest kids there…," Erasmus said. "It was really shocking that it was him.”
Erasmus told CNN that he believed T.J. Lane was either a sophomore or junior at the school.
He said that Lane was sitting about a table away from some of the victims.
Erasmus said he heard the victims "were all sitting there and then he just stood up and that’s when it all started."
Meanwhile, he and the other students in a nearby classroom, "turned the lights off and we headed into a corner" after the shooting.
There's pics of a kid in a green trench coat in a sparse room holding up what looks like a knife, then 2 guns, then a sign dated yesterday.
and an "at risk" student that normally takes a bus to another school.
btw 5 victims, not 4

allegedly, there were also written threats made through facebook or twitter...
Mike in Long Beach please take notes.
to it to get their hands on just about anything be it guns, explosives, drugs, or whatever.
"Omegle" on the sign he's holding up?
Almost any type of weapon if you don't mind that it fell off a truck.
Especially if you are near a large city like Cleveland.
links you up to another random user on the site for conversations.
never understood the appeal of either. chat roulette was apparently notorious for dudes showing their junk.
given that site that was noted, it looks like alot of 'dark loner' bullied outcast stuff is going to come out of the investigation.
Mike in St. Louis : 9:31 am
where do you see that it was a student who did the shooting, or someone associated with the school?
9 times out of 10 buddy... 9 times out of 10....

The suspect is "scared, confused, and extremely remorseful".
to the lawyers characterization of the shooter.
