Oxford High School students, parents sue school staff, Crumbley family in wake of mass shooting
A new civil lawsuit has been filed by and on behalf of Oxford High School students and their families in the wake of the fatal mass shooting in November that left four dead and seven injured.

The parents of Tate Myre -- a 16-year-old who was killed in the Oxford High School shooting -- and several students who were present for and survived the shooting are suing school staff and administrators, as well as the suspected shooter and his parents, for their alleged roles in the tragedy. In a lawsuit filed Thursday in Oakland County, the defendants are being accused of negligence for failing to prevent the mass shooting after events transpired that suggested the suspected shooter would soon initiate violence, either toward himself or others.......

(Reuters) - A federal judge ordered the U.S. government to pay slightly more than $230 million to survivors and family members of victims of a 2017 mass shooting at a Texas church that killed 26 people.

U.S. District Judge Xavier Rodriguez ruled seven months after finding the government 60% responsible for the Nov. 5, 2017, massacre by former Air Force airman Devin Patrick Kelley at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Shot FIred At Louisville Mayor Candidate Craig Greenberg.

https://www.courier-journal.com/story/n ... 784596001/.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A person fired a gun at Louisville Democratic mayoral candidate Craig Greenberg in his office on Story Avenue on Monday morning, police say.

No one was injured, but an article of Greenberg's clothing was hit, Louisville Metro Police Chief Erika Shields told media about 12:30 p.m.

A person has been detained by police, and no motive was known, she said.

"We also have no reason to believe at this time that this individual was acting anything but alone."

A person interesting that you don't describe who that person is. Could it be because he is an African American SJW.
I am pretty sure had it been a RWer who attempted to.murder a democratic party candidate you would have included a description.

Glenn, when that story came out, we didn't know the color of the suspect. It hadn't been released.

Wipe the egg off your face.

But this thread is about mass shootings. How many mass shooters haven't been white males? Not many.

Technically, Quintez Brown is not a mass shooter. But the thread is about gun control, as well.

Let's see how long it takes for Glennfs to trot out the mental health card like they do when the suspect is a white man...oh wait...too late, Glennfs already trotted out the delinquent negro agitator card.

Right out of the pages of the White Citizens Council newsletter.

Next, we'll hear about how many C's this guy got on his report card.

SENATORS DEMAND YOUTUBE REMOVE INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEOS ON MANUFACTURING & ASSEMBLING GHOST GUNS

Washington (February 15, 2022) – U.S. Senator Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) joined Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), U.S. Senators Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), and Cory Booker (D-N.J.) in calling on YouTube to remove videos that guide viewers on how to manufacture and assemble unserialized, untraceable ghost guns. According to YouTube’s Community Guidelines, videos that aim to “instruct viewers on how to make firearms, ammunition, and certain accessories or instruct viewers on how to install those accessories” are prohibited on the platform.

“We write to express our serious concern that YouTube continues to host videos that instruct viewers on how to make and manufacture ghost guns. This content is a clear and direct violation of YouTube’s existing Community Guidelines on firearms,” the senators wrote to YouTube Chief Executive Officer Susan Wojcicki.

Virginian-Pilot Reporter Among Those Killed In Granby Street Shooting In Downtown Norfolk.

https://www.pilotonline.com/news/crime/ ... story.html.

Saturday would have been Sierra Jenkins’ turn to cover the breaking news shift for the The Virginian-Pilot.

When an editor learned early Saturday that several people had been shot outside a bar in downtown Norfolk, he called Jenkins repeatedly to ask her to cover it. But Jenkins couldn’t be reached.

The 25-year-old reporter was one of the two people killed when gunfire erupted outside the popular Granby Street nightspot.

Jenkins had been at Chicho’s Pizza Backstage, a restaurant and bar she’d gone to with her best friend, according to her family. The bar was closing when an argument started outside and Jenkins, who covered education for The Pilot and Daily Press, was caught in the line of fire as she left. She was later pronounced dead at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.
