didn't hear much of this school shooting

Good guy with a gun isn't news worthy. For progressives he isn't much different than a terrorist.

 

snip-

A police officer at a northern Illinois high school was hailed as a hero Wednesday for shooting and arresting a former student who fired on him in a hallway while staff and seniors were meeting for a graduation rehearsal.

The 19-year-old former Dixon High School student suffered wounds that weren’t life-threatening, according to police, who didn’t release his name. The school resource officer, Mark Dallas, took the gunman into custody after shooting him.

“He saved an enormous amount of lives,” Lee County Sheriff John Simonton said. His comments were echoed by Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner, who in a statement credited “Dallas for his bravery and quick action to immediately diffuse a dangerous situation.”

The shooting happened shortly after 8 a.m. while staff and students were gathered for a graduation rehearsal.

Re: If it doesn't fit

Given the epidemic that is afoot I wasn't aware of any group opposed to school resource officers.

one wonders if there had been more melanin involved if all would have lived.

 

as well , had this been a Muslim there would have been more coverage.

What the canines were only supposed to pick up on from the whistling was that “it was a macho dude sporting a piece.”

 

My daughter teaches in and gr. Kids go to  4 different schools, all with resource officers.  Had ‘em before Sandy Hook.

It is interesting what we glean from an article, you read something about a dog whistle and take a dig at the police officer (macho dude) sporting a piece; I see a police officer that "saved an enormous amount of lives" and am grateful he was there to save these many lives.

I admit that if this shooter would have shot a bunch of these kids, it would have benefited the anti-gun crowd, however this is a much better outcome and one would think would get at least a 15 second story on the National News.

Fantastic result to the situation. It did make the news. Rather widely reported on. Just not a lot of banners.

Not a lot of banners because the anti gun crowd can't grab for the guns with it.

It was all over CNN and CBS this morning. Maybe if you didn’t watch the entertainment channel do much you would learn something.
