No time to joke about the school shooting or shootings in general, my best wishes and prayers to everyone affected...

I'm trying to figure out this word... Brashear... is it Brash-ear?  Bras-hear?  Bra-Shear?

The 3rd one, more or less... the "bra" is more of a shwa sound.

Named after this under-recognized guy.

The news sites are all citing scanner traffic on the suspect, but that's probably pretty reliable.  At least that means this situation isn't likely to escalate other than maybe the gunman being killed.

No life-threatening injuries, which is, of possible outcomes, better than many.

Don't they ban loaded guns at gun shows?
 
2013-11-13 04:06:23 PM
Picksberg has a few killings every night.
Nothing to be alarmed about.
And yes, they kill kids every damned day there.
You just don't hear about it because Al Sharpton isn't going to stand up and say anything about it.
And you know why.
 
2013-11-13 04:06:25 PM
but we are all just scared of guns with black plastic bits.

right?

Soooooooooooo, about those comprehensive background checks and regulations for guns...........

I googled "Brashear attempted murder" and all I got was pictures of Marty McSorley
 
2013-11-13 04:07:59 PM
They just said they have one person in custody already.

I don't think 3 people being shot in the same neighborhood as a school counts as a mass shooting.
 
2013-11-13 04:08:30 PM
The shooting was not actually at the school, just nearby, and appeared to be targeted, not just "shoot everyone we can".  Also, no one was killed.  Just like what happens all the time in Chicago.  But, let's call this a school shooting (or mass shooting) because it elicits a more emotional response, and we as American's don't know how to  do anything without appealing to emotion.

Probably some fattie angry from the yoga pants thread
 
2013-11-13 04:08:41 PM
3 people?
Non-life threatening injuries?
News flash tag?
Hardly a mass shooting mostly mass asshattery!

/Get off my lawn ya damn hipsters!
 
2013-11-13 04:08:49 PM
It sounds like the kids weren't on campus, just leaving the campus.  Which as these things go is a good thing since presumably the hundreds of kids inside the school are safe.
 
2013-11-13 04:08:56 PM
Sadly, at this point it's time to replace that clock with a kitchen timer.

Shadow Blasko: School district spokeswoman Ebony Pugh said the victims were not on school property but close by.

/Nevermind. Don't even bother resetting the clock for this one.


So...its a school shooting simply due to proximity?

I can't find an actual definition for "mass shooting," but the FBI doesn't consider something a mass murder unless there are 4 or more victims.

So, while it is really just semantics and not important relative to what happened, I think this would be more properly called a multiple shooting.
 
2013-11-13 04:10:35 PM
FTA: Scanner traffic indicated that police were looking for a person dressed in all black clothing who was seen fleeing into the woods near the school.

If they don't catch him we won't hear the end of this for months.
 
2013-11-13 04:10:36 PM
Early estimates say 10,000 dead. Maybe more

I think it was subby being opportunistic rather than being paranoid

There really should be a drinking game for every time Chicago is mentioned in a shooting thread.

Seriously, I live here and have not been shot... yet. Per capita we are not that bad

That is what it sounds like..

Time to start turning speculation into "fact" and start making shiat up, so that you can then go on and biatch about how the news networks do the very same thing and "ruin people's lives".

In other words, everything you people are citing as "facts" now will turn out to be completely different in about 45 minutes, except for the place it all happened. Hell, might not even turn out to be an actual shooting, the way assholes pick a thread and run with it nowadays.

I'll check back in an hour or two and see if ANYTHING has stayed the same.

If someone shoots at something with mass, it's a "mass shooting". From now on, every shooting is a "mass shooting".

In the last 10 years how many Americans have been killed by terrorists? Now how many have been killed by mass shootings? Why is there not an equal level of effort and spending on the issue?

kling_klang_bed: Soooooooooooo, about those comprehensive background checks and regulations for guns...........


As soon as they make attempted murder illegal, I'm sure events like this will never happen again.

By the way, how did this shooter obtain his gun?  Was it ordinarily stored safely?  This article is kind of sparse on details that would imply that your suggested solutions would have made a difference.  :\

P.S. The FBI definition of a mass murder is four or more people killed.  Thus far, this doesn't even qualify as a single murder.
 
2013-11-13 04:12:08 PM
Now is it time for a conversation on gun control?
 
2013-11-13 04:12:46 PM
Only 3 and none dead? What are we, Sweden?

YOU CAN DO BETTER NEXT TIME, AMERICA!!!
 
2013-11-13 04:12:53 PM
3 shot; nobody died. Obviously, this is the time to use this incident to further our various political agendas.
