Yeah, he was a real hero that day . . .
Scot Peterson, the school resource officer at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, has been reflecting on what more he could’ve done to stop the shooting that killed 17 people, per the Washington Post, after choosing to call for backup instead of running into the building.
Be smart: Student resource officers are supposed to help keep schools safer; but, like in Peterson’s case, sometimes they can only do so much.
Peterson said he locked down the school, cleared students out to safety, and called for backup. He just didn’t go in the building.
Another chilling day in Wild West Britain: Masked gunman shoots victim point-blank on residential Yorkshire street as violent crime spree spreads
Clearly, Britain needs tougher gun laws to do something about their violent crime problem . . .
A masked gunman shoots his victim at point-blank range at dawn on a quiet residential street in the most shocking image yet from ‘Wild West Britain’.
Seconds later the gunman had fled the scene in suburban Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, in a van.
Police believe the shooting was a ‘targeted attack’ and yesterday released shocking images from a resident’s CCTV camera as they hunted the gunman.
It is just one more sickening incident in a wave of violent crime sweeping the country.
Elon Musk shared some fiery news on his Twitter account on Saturday: The first 1,000 people who ordered the Boring Company Not-a-Flamethrower” to help the fledgling tunnel building business raise money, could pick up their flamethrowers.
The flamethrowers are one of the delightfully oddball fundraising items Musk’s Boring Company has put up for sale. First was a “Boring Hat” and then came the flamethrower (later rebranded as a “Not-a-Flamethrower” due to legal concerns about selling them), and there was even a peanut brittle. In the future, Musk has said the Boring Company will turn the muck the company digs up into bricks and sell them.
Was the Broward County Sheriff’s Department running the response that day? . . .
Survivors and families of victims of the 2015 Bataclan attack in Paris filed a legal complaint Friday over the inaction of some soldiers that night in what could expose egregious failings within France’s military and political commands.
The legal complaint was triggered by the testimony of a top military commander who gave evidence during a parliamentary investigation of the actions of police and military on the night of the attacks of November 13, 2015.
General Bruno Le Ray, Military Governor of Paris, defended the order he’d given that prevented eight soldiers located near the Bataclan concert hall from intervening in the attack because he thought “it unthinkable to put soldiers at risk just hoping, hypothetically, to save other lives”, Samia Maktouf, a Paris lawyer for the survivors and victims’ families, told FRANCE 24.
There are plenty of pro-gun attorneys
New York divorce lawyer extraordinaire Raoul Felder, who handled the celebrity splits of everybody from Rudy Giuliani to Christie Brinkley, kept a pistol in the desk drawer of his Manhattan office for many years.
His reasoning was simple: “Everybody hates divorce lawyers, sometimes even their own clients,” he said.
That animosity was on display earlier this week when police said an Arizona man — upset over his divorce nearly a decade earlier — went on a killing spree that left seven people dead, including himself.
Dwight Lamon Jones did not kill his ex-wife’s lawyer Elizabeth Feldman, but police said he took the lives of two paralegals who worked for her and a prominent forensic psychiatrist who had also worked for Feldman.
