How many tomb stones does it take ?

We are in the THIRD DAY of wall-to-wall 24/7 coverage of the school shooting in Florida that happened 02/14/2018 where 17 died.  I don’t want to seem insensitive, but nearly 7,000 people die every day in our country

Every day – on average

…  some 135 commit suicide – including 20 vets

… some 120 die in vehicle accidents – including 12  because of drowsy drivers and 9 from distracted drivers

…  22 KIDS died from the flu in the last week

…  some 325 died from medical errors

…  some 350 died from their use/abuse of alcohol

…. some 1200 died from their use/abuse of Nicotine.

It is obvious that it is unfortunate that a mentally unstable person did this shooting, but our society is not perfect… never has been perfect … and never will be perfect.

And now the FBI is admitting that they were warned about the shooter SIX WEEKS AGO and DID NOTHING ABOUT IT.

Does all of this wall to wall coverage just giving others some ideas to be a copy-cat mass shooter ?

  1. It’s very tragic that these kids were killed, it’s tragic when anyone loses a loved one but how many times do we have to hear the same thing? When the next big news story happens most will forget about this one . It does make for good press to push the anti gun agenda . SOSPHAD! Let everyone mourn in peace and go on to the next story. Maybe that makes me sound cold hearted but if it were my child I wouldn’t want to relieve every gory detail day in and day out!

  2. YES!! I think it’s horrible what happened but yes…like everything else, it goes on and on and on and on………..UGH!

  3. Thank you for this post. I feel the same way.
    In fact I turned the TV off soon as I saw this had happened. I was like,.. here we go again. Ugh.. I’m very sorry for the families, I truly am. But..
    There’s nothing that going to stop everything from happening. In life sh*t happens.
    Everytime something does happens, no matter what it is the Government wants make new laws or change laws then guess what? We lose more of our freedom!!
    Frankly I’m sick and tired of the Government intruding into my life, always trying to save us from life happenings or from ourselves.
    The Constitution and The Bill of Rights is diminshing right before our very eyes.
    I hope the Libertarian party is on the Rise.

  4. When will the FBI be held accountable for their failing once again?!
    The FBI failed on the Pulse shooter here in Florida as well and others
    Perhaps they should be paying for the funerals.
    I do see what you’re saying. I worked 20+ years at the State Attorney’s Office in Orlando and there is a lot of death every day that the general public just does know about or have to deal with.
