Central Michigan University On Lockdown After Shooting At Dorm Kills 2

Quote:
Police are looking for a gunman who killed two people Friday morning on the campus of Central Michigan University.

University police said the victims were shot at Campbell Hall, a co-ed dormitory. "The deceased are not students and police believe the situation started from a domestic situation," the university tweeted. It said there are no additional injuries.

My wife reminded me of a study in which a closer look at the data revealed, among other things, that lefties with agendas counted a gang fight with fatalities on an abandoned school site as a "school shooting with multiple fatalities". They would certainly call this dorm incident among family members a fatal school shooting.


How many people will be honest enough to also call this what it is - an angry, drug-addled young black man assaulting a police officer, taking his weapon, and killing both the cop and a bystander ?

This really doesn't deserve the attention it's getting. If it had occurred a few miles off campus, it would have got coverage in the local paper but little else.

The presumption was it was a "campus" shooting, hence the coverage. Certainly important to get the lock down message out, since he was roaming campus but now that the story is told and it's not what they hoped, news organizations will move on.

Tragic made more tragic by agencies looking to fill agendas. It was a drug-addled (maybe) young man (end of necessary adjectives) killing his parents trying to help him. That's the honesty of it, isn't it? Anything else seems to be catering to someone else's agenda.

Seems disingenuous to label it as a cop killing; it was a domestic incident where the father/victim happened to be a police officer.

Kid had mental health and/or substance abuse issues. Mom and dad show up inform Junior that he's either coming home permanently or headed to a rehab/hospitalization. Junior says hell no, starts to leave, dad grabs him, tussle ensues, Junior gets gun from dad, shoots him and in the heat of the moment shoots mom. Tragedy.

Facts are facts. Black kid, dead cop. Don't hold the right to a higher standard.

Absolutely a tragedy. I guess if you were a racist ahole, you might try to push a “angry black kid kills cop and bystander” narrative instead though.

Yeah, it sucks. Drugs and mental illness are a bad combo.

You take your kid off to college with all of the hopes and dreams in the world. I can't fathom the heartbreak of these parents having to pick their kid up. Then this happens.

Agreed. It shouldn't be labeled a cop shooting or a school shooting since neither was a motivating factor.

Exactly.

A school shooting in which an angry young black man coming off a drug episode attacked a cop, took his weapon, and killed both the cop and a bystander.

The obvious conclusions must be that we should never have legalized recreational drugs or armed guards at schools, right ?

I think he’s trying to fit in with the yappi right by overselling his credentials given he voted for obama twice.

How are we ever going to get a handle on these conditions and how they affect other people? People with mental illness used to be more of a harm to themselves, not others. Also, our definition of mental illness is so broad these days. Schools, both public, private primary and secondary levels, plus college are so dependent on enrollment levels than just about anyone can be accepted into school, so what kind of vetting system can we have to keep dangerous kids out of schools?

Stop stigmatizing it would be my first suggestion. Many people still view mental illness as a weakness, out of ignorance. This stops many who do suffer from seeking help.

Please explain, Philosopher-Child. Don't just regurgitate a new platitude. If mental illness is not a weakness or short-coming, what is it ?



Blowing smoke up peoples azzes doesn't solve anything either It is what it is.

Depends on your definition of weakness or short coming. A disease of the brain is no more or less a weakness than a disease of the kidneys for instance.

I guess I should have clarified for the home-schoolers.

Weakness as in "You're just weak, get over it."
