4 total shot, 1 dead, 3 in stable condition.
Suspect IS in custody.
>He was weird. And he really liked Breaking Bad.
Jeez. Gonna be really trippy when someone does this and says Twin Peaks: The Return was their favorite show.
Hope those that are affected end up okay and get the help they need. This shooter obviously needs it. Just senseless.
All the schools in Spokane went in to lockdown. Scary stuff. Looks like 1 student was killed.
Grew up with Freeman as our rival high school. I'm over on the other side of Washington now but hearing about it on NPR on the drive home while having family in the area and only hearing "school southeast of Spokane" had me freaking out. Tragedy for the Scotties and my sympathies are with all the kids/staff at that school and the communities around Rockford.
Well, Time for the Right to blame television and video games while the Left blames the NRA. All while ignoring the real issue that this kid was bullied in school so badly that he felt the need to retaliate with GUNS.
Was the kid fucked up? Did he need mental help? Were the instances of people shitting on him being ignored by school officials? Where these problems amplified because it is a rather small high school of 300 students where the feeling of social exile is amplified?
Probably a mix of all of these but no one's ever going to find out just like all the other school shootings because America isn't interested in solving problems where there is shared blame. Only in labeling one person/group as EVIL and being done with it.
Why is this not higher up on the popular page or anything? Am I not following the right subreddit, or why am I just now hearing about this? I don't live under a rock...
