Default At least 8 killed in another school shooting

Here we go again. Some disturbed kid decided that allowing others to live was something he could not do. Unfortunately, he had a captive and unarmed populace in place to help him fulfill his wishes.

At least 8 killed in shooting at Texas' Santa Fe High School, sheriff says

At least eight people -- and as many as 10 -- have died as a result of a shooting Friday morning at a high school in the southeastern Texas city of Santa Fe, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said.

This is the third school shooting in eight days, and the 22nd since the beginning of the year in the United States.

A male suspect, believed to be a student, has been arrested in the shooting at Santa Fe High School, about 20 miles outside Galveston, Gonzalez said.
A second person -- also believed to be a student -- has been detained as well, Gonzalez said.
Most of the dead are students, the sheriff said.
Witnesses described students running from the school as they heard gunshots; they also described hearing an alarm at the school, though the sequence of events wasn't immediately clear.

Anybody notice that there was not a single armed ass hole in the school to shoot back?

RIP to the victims and their families.

I'm sure Hoggy is ecstatic. Now he has another reason to extend his 15 minutes of fame.

Maybe we can get another Hitler salute outta him.

Aaaaaaaaaaand right on cue, the msm lies and exaggerates the facts on this and other school shootings.

Media push gun control narrative after Santa Fe massacre. Local Texas reporter debunks the lies.

As America has learned the hard way, misinformation and complete lies spread quickly in tense moments as major national stories unfold, typically to push one narrative or agenda over another. Friday’s tragic shooting massacre in Santa Fe, Texas, is just the latest example of rampant misinformation.

But one local Houston reporter was there to debunk the lies and shine a light on the truth.

What were the claims?

As Ben Shapiro noted at the Daily Wire, CNN was quick to claim that Friday’s tragedy was the 22nd school shooting this year.

However, as Shapiro pointed out, CNN’s standards for “shooting” are not exactly on par with what happened at Santa Fe High School or at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Included in CNN’s inflated number are non-purposeful shootings (accidental discharges) that occur on school campuses, gang violence and domestic violence, university shootings and incidents that did not even include pupils.

In addition to CNN’s claim, another claim, this one alleging there have been 18 school shootings, also circulated. Meanwhile, claims Friday’s killer used an AR-15 rifle quickly circulated on social media, despite officials confirming he used a shotgun and handgun he stole from his family.

What did the local reporter say?

To combat the misinformation, KHOU-TV reporter Tiffany Craig placed information in three columns on a screen while reporting on the story. One column included verified information, the middle column included reported, but unverified information and the last column contained information about the massacre that had been confirmed untrue.

She explained:

Two more things to mention that go in the “false column.” Social media has been abuzz today with this. There are a couple of things to mention in here. The first one is this information that there were 18 school shootings in 2018. This number — 18 — is not mass shootings like what you’re seeing today here in Santa Fe. These include smaller incidents that might be around the school or even suicides, and all of those numbers get pooled together and they’re presented in a way like this that instills fear in some people. So this is a false piece of information, and we want to let you know that.

And one other thing that just came about, there are a lot of reports saying that an AR-15 was used. According to officials here in Santa Fe, an AR-15 was not used in this school shooting.
