Earlier today, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School of Parkland, Florida suffered a horrific shooting that has left at least sixteen fatal victims, with over a dozen more in the hospital at time of writing. Considering the details of the shooting – along with a wide array of footage taken by terrified students during it – I figured it was worth making a separate thread to discuss it.
I don’t have much I can think to say, partially out of a desire to get this out, but also because it’s more and more difficult to find unique things to say about American mass shootings. So instead, I’ll just ask for a certain degree of civility in discussing it. Keep the more extreme or explicit footage from the main politics thread (and please put content warnings above any embedded file or link if you would like to include or discuss it).
