I mean once Alex Jones pays up, I suspect they'll be doing just fine.

And they should all get a piece of it. Especially the ones working to prevent similar tragedies in the future.

Are these the same teens working at fast food places getting my order wrong all the time?

Figures.

Is that really going to happen though? I agree that he SHOULD be forced to pay as much as possible, but as we know, the slimy often find a way to wiggle out of their problems.

Poor sweethearts. I'm so glad they are passionate about it not happening again. I hope they can make it happen.

They will be hated by the gun people for their entire lives.  Not because of anything they did, but because their mere existence disproves the ideology to which gun people so desperately cling.

Like teenage drama isn't bad enough. Their parents and teachers have to accept the 'trauma' excuse no matter what these kids pull.

I believe he will try.

Didn't he already declare bankruptcy? Usually, that's a sign he's not going or willing to pay.

Depends if he was involved or not.
Likely he just paid people to handle those things - people who don't screw up, because they are paid a lot of money not to screw up.
It's already widely known that the majority of his money came from snake oil salesmen who sponsored his show.

I attended a school with a pretty famous shooting (I was not present at the time), and have spent a really stupid amount of time on hypervigilance as a result. Back when I was teaching, I had a very detailed survival plan for every classroom I taught in. I spent so, so much time deciding if I was willing to die for my students, or to kill one of my own students. I've not gone to a lot of events and concerts because I didn't want to get shot.

I don't currently teach, but this year, I picked up a part-time job working at a big haunted house attraction as a scare actor. Just because I thought it would be fun! (It was, but I learned really quickly that I am too damn old to work a full-time job and then go put on a full-body costume and scream at people for six more hours at night, and I will never do it again.) On Halloween night, I knew, I knew, that someone was going to come through with a gun and try to kill everyone at the haunt. I could feel it in every inch of my body.

Didn't happen. And I still showed up and did my job. I'm stupid proud of it.

These are the people that will change the world. They've lived under threat(and action) of horrific violence their entire lives, and are sick of it...a storm is coming. Brace yourselves.
 
2022-12-07 6:19:41 PM  
Before I was teenager it was considered normal to bring a shotgun to school, drop it off to the vice-principal, after showing safe, then picking it up at the end of the school day.  Got off the bus early to walk/hunt home.  Never had a shooting or a knifing at school though the fisticuffs were frequent.  Different time, different people.

I am unable to empathize with mass shooters, drive-by shooters, or just for grins & giggles shooters.

I'm sure that $200 will set them up for life after being stalked and doxxed for the next 20 years, and the previous 10.
 
2022-12-07 6:32:43 PM  
It is very difficult to read this story and not be filled with rage. These kids deserved none of this--not the shootings, and not the ravings of a fat piece of sh*t c*cksucker like Alex Jones. No kid does.

And the WORST PART is that, as Uvalde proved, these kids won't be the last.

Maybe one of them will grow up to slap the dog shiat out of Alex Jones before he's inevitably found dead from an OD at a Motel Six in Beaumont.

I'm sure they're all gearing up to vote Republican, straight ticket.

Who wouldn't?
 
2022-12-07 6:50:28 PM  
I can't imagine being them, growing up and watching the adults do exactly f*cking nothing to try to prevent this from happening again. Year after year, as it keeps happening.

Such accomplished actors should have no problem finding jobs in Hollywood.

Debt accrued as restitution for heinous, intentional, abusive or cruel acts aren't dischargable through bankruptcy. That was partially the point of burying him a mile down, razing the site, nuking it from orbit, and causing the star to go supernova: he can't finagle his way out by bankruptcy.

I'd toss a few more links but my browser is acting funky about randomly refreshing between juggling mobile tabs (including this one) but it was covered pretty throughly in all the "He's guilty" threads.

All they gotta do is live in the dorms in college and they automatically get the suicided roommate legacy for straight A's.
 
2022-12-07 7:04:15 PM  
the day all these kids turn 18 they should all go buy 4 or 5 guns and all buy houses in alex jones's neighborhood

not to do anything.  just to, you know, practice their 2a freedoms.
i'd chip in for a kickstarter on that.

What I like here is that while Subby did their best to pretend to care, their blissful ignorance about themselves let them gloss right over the fact that they wish to inquire about the private lives of kids. I think that is very helpful and not at all emblematic of how people are desperate to be seen acting as if they care more than doing what is in the best interests of the subjects they deeply care so much about because it isn't about themselves at all.

These kids should get the Sandy Hook equivalent of the all access backstage pass. They can whip it out for any reason they choose. Not happy with your test score? The Sandy Hook pass says you get a retake. Cops hassling you? The Sandy Hook pass says GFY cop. Automatically jump to the front of every line at every theme park (Yes, you too Disney). No waiting for a table at any restaurant anywhere. No luggage fees. No Ticketmaster convenience fees.
They earned it.

School Police: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)
Youtube KgwqQGvYt0g


"School police are not the answer to school shootings. The answer to that is gun control. When we throw more cops into schools as an easy way out of that difficult and necessary conversation, we not only fail to keep our kids safe from gun violence, we condemn them to a system that criminalizes the very essence of childhood.

Kids deserve to be annoying without being arrested, to be sad and angry without being body slammed. They deserve to have tantrums, throw carrots, do science experiments, talk shiat and carve their names into stuff without risking ending up in the back of a police car. They deserve to be curious, to make mistakes, to go a little too far, to be a little too loud - to basically be a farking kid.

And they definitely deserve better than the fundamental lie that the only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy who can arrest a five-year-old."

Back then the Republican mantra was just "Democrats want to spend your hard earned tax dollars" now it's that plus "they're trying to rape your children and if you kill them you're a hero". Shockingly that's made some people more violent.
 
2022-12-07 8:46:14 PM  
Why are people so afraid of or angry about giving up their guns? I'm cool with doing so if it saves lives.

To paraphrase Golda Meir, we will have less or no mass shootings while gun owners love their children more than their guns

No, I don't mean the young person with a bright future ahead of them, either.
