Another School Shooting
Quote | Reply
Freeman High School- Rockford, Washington

Happened about 10:30ish, a sophomore opened fire and while there's conflicting reports currently, it seems one dead and several injured.

My girlfriend and I were out driving and getting donuts when it happened, and she got the text from one of her friends in a different (our) high school, all surrounding school districts are on full (many now on modified,) lockdown.

Freeman HS is a tiny school, about 20 minutes south of the main part of Spokane valley.

Apparent copycat shooting. NPR reports that some people familiar with the shooter say he has an obsession with school shootings.

Don't get it.

Don't get it.

Heard on radio that he wrote a note (or post on social media) a couple of weeks ago that was going to "do something that would get him killed or put in prison" and his friends alerted the school about it.

If true, some school administrators may be entering the witness protection program.

There was no mention in the report of follow up by the school or police. No mention. That doesn't mean nothing was done....

Maybe the school followed up and the kid convinced them everything was ok, our maybe the school dropped the ball. I'm just conveying what I heard in a 10 second radio news clip.

It could be yet another case of...

"If you see something, say something.....so we can do nothing..."

Terrible situation all the way around.

I went to a prayer service tonight at one of our local churches. Gut wrenching. My girlfriend and her family are close with one of the girls and her families that was wounded, another girl goes to that church as well.

I'm sitting here now afterwards just speechless.

When you hear it on the news about a school 1000 miles away it's terrible to hear, but when you hear it from friends about a school I could be at in 25 minutes, and have talked to people that lay in hospital beds right now, and have a girlfriend graduating with a teaching degree in 3 years, i'm, I just don't know what to say. Other than I'll be praying.

Do what you need to do.

I don't have anything to add that would make anything better.
