Deputies respond to active shooter at Florida high school

Source: NYPost

CBS 4 Miami texted with a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland — near Fort Lauderdale — who said they’re hiding in the closet.

“All of a sudden there was a really loud noise… people are crying in the closet,” the student wrote to CBS 4.

The outlet reported a number of people could be seen from their newscopter being loaded into ambulances on a stretcher.

Coral Springs police advised students and teachers in the locked-down school should remain barricaded until officers reach them.

There were 14 school shootings in January, 2018 (https://www.madisondodgeronline.com/opinion/2018/02/09/fourteen-school-shootings-have-happened-as-of-february-1st-2018/). I do not know how many have happened so far in February.

NRA: "But now is not the time to talk about school shootings" (said after every school shooting).

2. My friend's kids go to Parkland High School

Just spoke to the mom and hers are find but other parent's are not able to reach their kids. Please keep them in your thoughts. As an aside, Parkland is much closer to Boca than Lauderdale.

29. I was down there once

(I really don't care for Florida so I just wait until my friends come to NY) and we walked to that school from her house just as part of a long walk. I last heard from my friend last night around 8:30 when she texted and told me he daughter, although safe, was "wigging out".

31. I'm not a parent and can't even

imagine the fear you must have. Needless to say, things like this just didn't happen (at least I don't remember it happening) when I was in high school (mid 70s). I'm sure my parents never gave one thought to the scenario that happened yesterday, and 17 times before that just this year. And your wife - teachers shouldn't ever have to have "live shooter drills" - it's simply madness.

32. I don't allow fear to overwhelm me

But it is always a thought at this point. I was sitting in a rather cramped venue recently at an orchestra concert. In the middle of the set I had a random thought that someone could easily just walk in and start blowing people away. That had never happened before. I smashed the thought and moved on. But we have to think about this stuff I guess.

33. I don't think acknowledging

the reality that we have a real problem with school shootings is allowing fear to overwhelm. It's just today's reality. Every year a friend and I to the Christmas tree at Lincoln Center thing in NYC, always a HUGE crowd there as well as the blocks leading up to it. It's not like you have to go through any security to walk our city streets so frankly, I'm surprised that we just take a deep breath and continue to do it. Then all the stuff going on at Madison Square Garden and all the other sports/concert arenas in the area. We can't stop living our lives but should fight with every breath we have that people don't ever consider this "normal".

9. NOBODY PANIC.

I just overheard from the TV in the other room that the President has sprung into action to offer his "thoughts and prayers".

He's on his knees that this buys them a few hours of non-Stormy Daniels coverage.

12. they even cancelled the afternoon presser.....

Cowards. They don't want to answer any more questions on kelly and porter, so they used this as an excuse.

What could possibly be so urgent at the white house over this shooting that the press sec'y couldn't be bothered to hold the briefing?

to say a few words live instead of via Twitter.

That's one of the President's jobs.

18. correction - a part time hourly employee....

He doesn't clock in until 11:00 am, then he takes an hour for lunch at noon. He has executive time at 2:00 pm, and is done with his day by 4:00.

So that looks like a 3-4 hour day to me.

11. UPDATE: Suspect in custody, one death

PARKLAND, Fla. - Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said the suspect in a shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is in custody.

BSO spokeswoman Keyla Concepcion said the SWAT team was called to a shooting at the school on Pine Island Road in Parkland.

Concepcion said there are reports of victims, but she didn't say how many.

Coral Springs Commissioner Dan Daley said he was told that at least one person is dead.

24. POTUS and Congress will give thoughts and prayers

The NRA will have their people on all three shows tonight with the usual pre-emptive "WHY CAN'T THOSE FREEDOM-HATING LIBS WAIT FOR THE BLOOD TO DRY BEFORE POLITICIZING THIS??!!??"

Then the NRA will deliver the usual veiled threat to any congresscritter thinking about gun regulation, they'll float the usual "And that's why we need to arm all the teachers!" which will be debated the rest of the night, and sometime next week both congress and the state of Florida will actually **loosen** current gun control laws... Rinse and repeat

and ask them if "today" is the day to talk about gun reform.

Asshats have done nothing for years, so don't expect much now.

HAMMER THEIR PHONES UNTIL THEY ACT ! !
