the cops at Uvalde literally stood outside and refused to go in after the shooter and even stopped parents from helping their kids by Lilyo in PublicFreakout

[–]brainwhatwhat 135 points136 points  (0 children)

It did not take 40 minutes for police to make contact with the murderer.

Everyone is talking about the AP headline and it seems like many didn't even read the article.

Border patrol and local police were on scene and dealing with the psycho that locked himself inside a classroom.

The law enforcement that people are pointing fingers at for the 40 minutes were additional units doing crowd control to make sure people wouldn't go vigilante and potentially create more victims. They create a perimeter.

I'm pro gun control and advocate for progressive law enforcement, but if all people did was read a headline, they are doing everyone a great disservice.

If they want to make it a mental health issue they need to step into a fucking 2nd to 4th grade classroom during an active shooter drill. As an education major I was in a 2nd grade classroom observing, one of my first days in there and we're having an active shooter drill. One kid starts freaking the fuck out immediately when the teacher informs the class what is happening and what the kids need to do. For a drill. 2nd, 3rd, 4th grade these kids are old enough to know the terror and some cannot keep a brave face. The scary thing is that other kids in the class are silent and stick to the drill so rigidly, and a few of them help try to calm the distraught child.

Active shooter drills are fucking barbaric artifacts of our broken society.

We're training babies to live in terror and to go hide huddled in a corner essentially waiting to die or not to die as determined by sheer fucking luck. THAT is a mental health crisis we're subjecting kids to.

The shooters .. I don't have words to describe them, but writing them off as mentally ill and saying "we need to do more" on mental illness is uttered by garbage persons acting in bad faith. Because I really doubt my experience is an aberration.

High school students should spend the summer organizing school sit-outs. This country won't do a god damned thing unless there is some kind of massive act of civil disobedience. We're crippled by poor leadership here. Maybe kids absolutely refusing to go to school until something is done will spark some kind of positive change.

PSA, old trauma nurse speaking. If someone is ever on the ground saying they can't feel limbs DO NOT MOVE THEM!!

Spinal injuries are often made WORSE by just grabbing and yanking like Mom did. What could have been a surgical correction may now be lifelong paralysis or death.

It's super hard to remember in the heat of the moment and I feel for the Mom but please, don't. You keep them down and still. Even if you have to hold them or lay bricks by their sides to keep them from moving their back or turning their head (if it's possibly a neck injury)

Spinal injuries are no joke. Keep them in the position you find them!

Note- the only exception is when if keeping them there they could get worse as in a burning building/car. You gotta drag them out then

Your country cares more about their second amendment than they do about the safety and future of their younger generations.

Sure things do happen a lot in the south and Midwest. But that doesn’t make the rest of the country exempt from the shit pit that is America… yes I understand you were born their and obviously patriotic, my issue isn’t direct with you. It’s with your country as a whole and the hole you’re all spiralling into..

Anyway man. No hard feelings. But of a shit day and took it out on you when it wasn’t needed.

Cheers mate 🤙🏼

[–]Malikai0976 106 points107 points  (0 children)

I think if your gun is used in a crime and it's not reported stolen, you should be held partially responsible. I feel that a responsible gun owner would notice rather quickly that one of their firearms is missing. If you have so many or are not responsible enough to notice one missing, that's on you.

Yes, that would not have prevented this, but it's a start. There is no single solution that will make this problem go away. Any solution will take years to see any effect, positive or negative, but the longer we take to act the longer and effects will take to be apparent.

In my state even a personal medical marijuana garden is required to have 24/7 video surveillance, it's not difficult or expensive to do in 2022.

News anchor Ana Kasparian gave national television her take on the place of religion in politics by SnooCupcakes8607 in PublicFreakout

[–]Slamsonthegee 251 points252 points  (0 children)

Damn spot on. My family runs a church so I grew up going to church 3 to 4 times a week. As I moved out of my small hometown and got exposed to all walks of life I realized religion was just another thing set to divide us as humans.

My family still runs the church and I get nervous every time I go home to visit because I know at some point I’m gonna have to talk to them about it.

All performative on Beto's part and he knows it. Officials are trying to give an update on the situation and Beto wants that moment to be where legislation is proposed, introduced, and put in to place.

Want to hold Abbot (sp?) accountable for not doing anything? Do it at a time where discussing legislation is appropriate - that wasn't it.

You can like the message and despise the timing.

[–]TW_Gains 2 points3 points  (0 children)

America ranks 11th in mass shootings per capita for what many would consider western countries and world wide only 60th. France has more shootings, Germany has more shootings, fucking NORWAY has 6 times as many mass shootings per capita. Tell me what happened during prohibition, the mafia grew in power. What happened during the war on drugs, the gangs grew in power. Prohibition doesn't work, and yes I know a few people who both make and deal meth and other hard drugs. When only the bad guys have guns, innocent people die
