Shooting at Marysville-Pilchuck High School near Seattle

Wow. Hits close to home.

http://www.komonews.com/news/local/P...280329652.html

MARYSVILLE, Wash. - A student opened fire Friday morning at Marysville Pilchuck High School, killing one student and critically injuring at least four others before fatally shooting himself, police and witnesses said.

Squadrons of police cars swarmed to the school at about 10:45 a.m. after receiving reports of an active shooter opening fire.

The shooter, a student at the school, fired several shots at other students in the school cafeteria. Five students were hit by the gunfire, and one of them was killed. The four others were severely injured. The shooter then turned the gun on himself.

Well he shot himself so I think that should count as a member of the student body killing him

And it sounds like it was all over a girl refusing him when he asked her to the prom. Oy..

This broad is out of her goddamn mind. A tragedy happens and she takes it as an opportunity to state this.

Did this kid seriously do this because a girl wouldn't go out with him?

The fucking entitlement of this asshole (and yes, of other men just like him) is what's responsible for some of these shootings. Their perceptions of women are so fucked up! Women are people, not wish-granting vagina-fairies.

Here's the loser's twitter feed, not sure how long it'll stay up.

Here are a couple jems.

Going from this sort of perpetual state of mind (there's a lot of tweets like this):



To this (a lot of these as well)

I'm gonna say that she's right on the fucking money, and if an obvious fact like that (one which leads to tragedies like this) bothers you so much, you need to check your own state of mind before commenting on someone else's.

If this isn't toxic masculinity, I don't know what is...

Re: Shooting at Marysville-Pilchuck High School near Seattle

This hit even closer to home for me because I was in the next building over. I'm a teacher at Marysville-Pilchuck and this has probably been the longest day in my life. Never want that to do this again.

I think the biggest thing I'm angry about tonight (aside from one of my students being shot to death), is that this shooter's parents had no clue about who their kid was. It took American and I about 5 seconds to put this kid's name into Twitter to see his mindset. Of course, you can kind of tell by the comment about his dad that he wasn't the greatest role model for him.

Our school is never going to be the same again.

Sorry that you had to experience this awful event (and will have to endure its aftermath). I wish you the best.

Wow man so glad you are OK (physically). The media makes it sound like everyone loved this kid and he was the life of the party.. I'm sure as more info comes out we'll see there were plenty of of other signs that showed otherwise. Hang in there.

In the US, the fanaticism of one's religion (not to mention affiliating with a terrorist group) and/or political fanaticism, dictates whether it's a terrorist attack.

He was a good white Christian. Nothing to see here, folks.


Oh, and it's Obama's fault.

Well, I owe you white folks an apology. This was committed by a native American kid:

The teen's family is well known among the area's Tulalip Indian tribe. Tribe Chairman Herman Williams Sr. said his community is reeling from the tragedy and will be trying to cope for many days ahead.
Well played, white folks.

It's still Obama's fault, though

Holy crap, that's horrible. I'm sorry that this has changed all those people's lives, not just the victims.

I have a friend who's on the staff at Marysville Getchell, not your school.

Marysville Pilchuck was supposed to play a division championship game tonight, but Oak Harbor forfeited to give them the title.

Very sorry. I hope you find the strength to deal with this, for yourself and your students.

“This wasn’t the typical trench coat, introvert-type person, no,” said Rick Iverson, a former teacher and wrestling coach at Marysville-Pilchuck. “This was an outgoing person that everyone in the school loved.”
From the video above, not everyone, Wrestle Rick.
