  1. The "apparently you're a lawyer" part seemed hostile. My snowflake feelings were hurt. I don't know (in part because I am certainly NOT a lawyer) what if any charges might stick. Short of arrest, would face-to-face encounters with law enforcement quizzing him on his intentions and maybe weapon confiscation pending an investigation have deterred him? No way to know that either. I did just see the quote below though, and while alone it means nothing, combined with knowing what school he attended, and the reports from people close to him, it should not have been especially hard to decide which school was threatened. "Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is located in Parkland, Florida, in the Miami metropolitan area. It is a part of the Broward County Public School district, and it is the only public high school in Parkland."
  2. Sponsor Rep. Kim Daniels, a Jacksonville Democrat who runs her own ministry, said Florida needed the legislation
  3. It was a simple question based on what I thought was new information Ken. No reason to be acerbic in response.
  4. Hey. Does the new information confirming that local police were warned numerous times that he was likely going to shoot up the school change your view at all? Just curious. "Broward County deputies received at least 18 calls warning them about Nikolas Cruz from 2008 to 2017, including concerns that he "planned to shoot up the school" and other threats and acts of violence before he was accused of killing 17 people at a high school. The warnings, made by concerned people close to Cruz, came in phone calls to the Broward County Sheriff's Office, records show. At least five callers mentioned concern over his access to weapons, according to the documents. None of those warnings led to direct intervention. In February 2016, neighbors told police that they were worried he “planned to shoot up the school” after seeing alarming pictures on Instagram showing Cruz brandishing guns. About two months later, an unidentified caller told police that Cruz had been collecting guns and knives. The caller was “concerned (Cruz) will kill himself one day and believes he could be a school shooter in the making,” according to call details released by the Sheriff's Office." https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2018/02/23/florida-school-shooting-sheriff-got-18-calls-cruzs-violence-threats-guns/366165002/
  5. Glanced through an article in USA Today on this. Apparently the idiots are already out and screaming for her to be fired because of her religion. "Within days of her debut, a white supremacist blog posted Rahman’s photo and personal phone number and asked people to call and write Channel 4 until she was taken off the air. The newsroom is taking precautions to keep Rahman safe, declining to give details, citing security concerns. But seven hours before the 6 p.m. broadcast, how “haters” are responding to Rahman’s on-air presence is nowhere near the top of her mind." https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/2018/02/23/iowa-journalist-makes-history-first-hijabi-reporter-american-tv-tahera-rahman-whbf-local-4/335297002/
  6. You said the menu choices were insensitive. Those items were on the menu. Maybe that's not what you meant?
  7. Oh. Now I understand.
  8. That no police officer has ever had their weapon taken? No. I don't think so.
  9. Of course, because up until now, guns in schools were not common. More opportunity makes for more likelihood.
  10. Does it have to be in a school? How about in a courtroom or on the street? Surely that has happened.
  11. Other than the watermelon koolaid, what was insensitive? Are ribs and collard greens not a staple of southern and soul food restaurants? Is this story missing something?
  12. Flash mobs (for good and bad) must be fake news.
  13. Nice. I guess you put it in my head; we ended up having brunch at Backfin Blues up in Port Deposit Sunday. Very nice, a bit expensive, but as you said, worth another trip to try lunch/dinner items.
  14. $620K OT in 6 years. Wow. Good thing for him he got it in before this GTTF issue evolved. Allegedly, OT will be more closely monitored going forward.
