Here we go again: Denver Police Respond to Active Shooting Situation at Arapahoe High School.

CENTENNIAL, Colo. (CBS4) - Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson says there’s an active shooting situation with possibly two victims at Arapahoe High School.

A scene that’s become horribly familiar recently:

UPDATE at 12/13/13 1:01:13 pm

Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson announced that the shooter came to the high school looking for a specific teacher, who was informed of the situation and fled. After shooting two students, he committed suicide.

Was the shooter “inspired” by the anniversary of Newtown?

Sheriff says the shooter committed suicide - came to the school looking for a specific teacher.

I wish to register that I’m not politicizing this current school shooting, but am responding to the previous school shooting, and the anniversary of the Newtown massacre in that Congress and Americans in general need to reconsider the easy access to firearms that makes these mass casualty events far too common.

That means addressing easy access to weapons that are designed to maximize firing rates, high capacity clips/magazines/ammo holding devices, licensing/registration, and mental health aspects.

But for the easy access to firearms, these kinds of situations would be extremely uncommon. And that is reinforced by the fact that so many of the mass shootings involve legally-owned firearms.

Mass shootings - defined when 3 or more people are shot, occur like clockwork. At least one every two weeks. But that’s a small percentage of the overall fatalities and injuries due to firearms use in the US overall.

Other facts and statistics relating to firearms in the US.

I don’t remember when X HAPPENED, LET’S TRY MEASURES TO STOP X became political.

When the Exxon Valdez crashed in Alaska in 1989, were increased safety measures for supertankers political?
When the major blackout happened in the Northeast in 2003, did grid maintenance become political?
When the I-35 bridge in Minnesota collapsed in 2007, was replacing it and rechecking the previous design political?

Kansas Man Charged With Trying to Explode Bomb at Airport

The complaint said Loewen left a letter dated Dec. 11 that said, “By the time you read this I will — if everything went as planned — have been martyred in the path of Allah.” It said he added, “I expect to be called a terrorist (which I am), a psychopath and a homicidal maniac.”
….
In October, the complaint said, the FBI official asked if Loewen would be willing to plant “some type of device.”

“Am I interested? Yes,” Loewen responded, according to the complaint. “I still need time to think about it, but I can’t imagine anything short of arrest stopping me.”

When I was attending school in the 40s and 50s, I witnessed only 1 incident, in jr high, that involved a gun. That was when a student brought a gun to school for himself and others to play Russian roulette. One boy shot himself in the head and died. The school, in Charlotte, was going to be closed (this would have been around 1954-55) and parts of it were closed off and not in use, and kids would sometimes go there for various forbidden activities. Even though the school was less than 40 yrs old (built in 1920), the location, near downtown, was not considered suitable for the upper middle class kids who attended there from Myers Park and a new school was built on Runnymeade Ln, the older one being torn down in the late 1950s. A large residence YMCA was built on the site a bit later.

However, school shootings are not new, even occurring during the 1800s (1850s was probably when they started keeping tabs), but in the 20th century, they became fairly common. This doesn’t even appear to be an exhaustive list, either, since the one I experienced is not listed. I think because of the identity of the kid, the family kept it pretty hush-hush and within the school itself.

The FBI seems to be pretty good at infiltrating and ferreting out potential radicals. That’s a good thing.

The Sheikh at the Sufi Center I used to go to in Berlin once said quite explicitly that if someone came to him having overheard a terrorist plot, he would immediately tell that person to go to the police; if they were too afraid to do so themselves, he continued by saying he’d go to the police himself and warn them that something was up.

And that’s how it’s done, because I’d damn well do the same without hesitation.

And this is the kind of things the cops ruin by running tactics like the mosque infiltration and observation stuff in NYC. Infiltrate the actual terrorist groups, not the community as a whole. The community you work with, you bring them into it.

Very true. Much like the FBI successfully infiltrated the KKK in the 1960s, they need to do the same today with regard to potential terrorist groups, jihad-inspired or otherwise.

I was mentioning the politicization tongue in cheek since calling for something to not be politicized is itself politicizing the activity. I led with that because these mass shootings happen so frequently that there’s no letup between grieving over one shooting situation and the next occurring.

It’s horrific for everyone involved, and lockdowns are an all-too-common occurrence. Something has to give, and that means addressing the lax firearms laws and treatment of firearms nationally.

Decades ago, mobile phones within schools were typically used only for drug dealing. In short order, students were routinely forbidden from carrying such.

Forward to today. Mobile phones are now part of our culture, but most students in US schools face draconian and largely arbitrary rules about posession and/or use on school property, especially during school session hours. Sanctions often include confiscation for several days, or with another infraction, until the end of the school term.

(Of course, parents are typically still required to continue paying for phone service that goes unused. Or worse, the carrier contract may specify that if “the device” is “out of service” for more than x days, that constitutes a breach of contract, and an early termination fee is owed. Have you read your TOS?)

Altho I can imagine some downsides, possibly more cell phones in the hands of more students and teachers could be helpful in these situations.

My younger son’s first week of High School, a stones throw from our house. Around 8 in the morning, a cop car goes by, siren blaring. Then another, and another. We live at the intersection of two major streets, though, so that happens. My wife said, “Probably an accident on Rt. 92.”

Then we hear a helicopter, and instead of flying past, it’s hovering nearby. My wife goes out front to check. Hundreds of students are walking from the HS to the Middle School a block away.

It turns out a former student had come to the school to commit mayhem, armed with pipebombs and a chainsaw. Fortunately he was completely incompetent - his pipebombs were barely powerful enough to scorch the linoleum, let alone bring down windows, walls, or doors, and a chainsaw is a really stupid offensive weapon, fevered gamer imaginations notwithstanding. The Principal and a teacher tackled him and held him till the Police got there.

Off topic I know, but another in the continuing run of how messed up our public discourse is:

Texas Lt. Gov. Hopefuls Voice Support for Creationism

Three out of four Republican candidates for Texas lieutenant governor said at a debate in Waco on Thursday evening that creationism should be taught in the state’s public schools.

All four men in the race said religion should play a larger role in public education when asked where they stood on the issue during the event hosted by the McClennan County Republican Party and broadcast by KCEN-TV. But only one, Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson, stopped short of endorsing creationism in the state’s curriculum.

Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst said he happens “to believe in creationism.”

“I believe that in fairness we need to expose students to both sides of this,” he said. “That’s why I’ve supported including in our textbooks the discussion of the biblical account of life and creation, and I understand there are a lot of people who disagree with me, and believe in evolution.”

Both state Sen. Dan Patrick of Houston and Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples echoed Dewhurst’s remarks, saying that as Christians they believe students should learn the biblical view of creation in school.


“Our students … must really be confused. They go to Sunday School on Sunday and then they go into school on Monday and we tell them they can’t talk about God,” said Patrick. “I’m sick and tired of a minority in our country who want us to turn our back on God.”

[…]

And don’t go cheering for the one who said no, as he simply means in a science classroom, but goes on later be one of those real constitutionalist fetishists.

Beepers. Remember those?

How many teachers are at a typical school? I think that’s probably enough people armed w/a phone to call 911. Phones are probably a real distraction to kids learning, even if it’s just texting. If parents need to contact their kids, they can do it through the office. No one else needs to disturb them while they’re ostensibly getting an education.

I think a good education is going to make kids productive adults, not cell phones, which at that age contribute to a lot of social dissension, gossip, and just utter BS.

To wit:

Patterson favors teaching creationism, but not in science class

Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson says creationism should be taught in public schools, only not in science class.

On Friday, he said I erred in lumping him with three GOP rivals for lieutenant governor in this story about their televised debate in Waco late Thursday.

“My position is we shouldn’t teach creationism as a science subject, but as a social studies/history/comparative religion subject,” Patterson wrote in an email.

“And the kids and their parents can decide to subscribe to that theory or not,” he said. “When I was in public school here in Texas in the 1950s and ’60s, we didn’t teach creationism, but we did say the Lord’s prayer every morning. As I said last night, voluntary prayer, or a moment of silent prayer every morning isn’t unconstitutional and isn’t unfair to anyone.”

[…]

Because subscribing to reality is optional.

Sheriff says student was armed with shotgun at Colorado’s Arapahoe High School; made no effort to hide it or conceal it; also a “device” possibly a molotov cocktail, was found inside the school, per bulletin on Breaking News.

Other students called shooter “troubled”, so this is probably a mental health situation.

“Colorado does not provide a minimum age to possess rifles or shotguns. Colorado also provides no minimum age for the purchase of a handgun or a long gun, although federal age restrictions still apply.”
