Jailed New York School Shooter Praises Florida Student Activists

Bandy, a lawyer in Cincinnati, graduated from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where a shooter killed 17 people on February 14.

The 10 a.m., 17-minute walkout honors the 17 lives lost during the latest school massacre. He then called for backup and for the school and a nearby intersection to be shutdown. As we argued in an editorial earlier this week, the only feasible hope for imposing a ban in Florida would be a constitutional amendment, because polls show most state voters would support one. Responding to reports, he arrived outside the freshman building almost two minutes later, issuing his first radio transmission: “Be advised we have possible, could be firecrackers, I think we have shots fired, possible shots fired – 1200 building”. “This is a time for all of us to come together, roll up our sleeves and get it done”. She’s the mother of 16-year-old Annabel, a sophomore at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Peterson has resigned and in a statement said he thought the gunshots were coming from outside the school buildings.

Meanwhile, the Network for Public Education, an advocacy organization for public schools, has announced a “national day of action” on April 20, the anniversary of the 1999 shooting at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, in which two students killed 12 schoolmates, a teacher and themselves.

The Republican governor, who is expected to seek a U.S. Senate seat later this year, has called for raising the minimum age to purchase any type of gun and said he does not support arming teachers. “The district should welcome this with open arms”. I think they honestly think they are doing the right thing.

“When I took the temperature of fourth-graders, some of the kids were not very interested right now – they feel very safe in school and don’t feel a need to act like activists yet”, she said. “They are great teachers”.

Dave Lawrence, the Moorhead High principal, worked with student leaders who are planning the event. All stressed that the planned activities were “student-generated”.

Rep. Carlos Trujillo, a Miami Republican and the House budget chairman, said that “holding up the passage of vital addiction services legislation while demanding one company receive over $5 million of taxpayer money every year puts profits before people”. “Three shot in her room”. “It is a national walkout, and we are vulnerable”.

The discrepancy was revealed in an updated timeline and dispatch audio of the Florida school shooting released Thursday by the Broward County Sheriff’s office. “If counties don’t want to do this, they can simply say no”.

Student activism at Concord will extend beyond next week’s walkout. Students will be encouraged to wear black and red, the colors of the Parkland school.

In addition, members of the student group will be encouraging classmates to contact legislators, write letters and make phone calls to give ideas for ending gun violence, Macturk says. “It’s not just a one and done”. Deputy Scot Peterson, the resource officer assigned to protect the school, is at the nearby administration building. “We have two well-placed sources tell us that in fact it was the case that they were told not to enter unless they had their body cameras on”, she said March 6.

“We, the students of The Packer Collegiate Institute, have decided that this moment is too crucial and this issue too urgent to stand idly by”, organizers, including Aliana Acevedo, Drew Myers, Sarah DeSouza and Savannah Phillips-Falk, said in a statement last Monday.

If not, Konschak said, “They would be counted absent”.

The West Fargo and Moorhead school districts are taking a similar approach.

When suspect Nikolas Cruz began his six-minute shooting rampage with an AR-15 assault-style rifle, investigators say, Peterson was near the school’s administration building, which is separated by a courtyard and classrooms from the freshman building.
