It was a training exercise, the police and the criminals all had brightly coloured plastic guns.

Weirdly the SWAT guys who were leading the training were armed with real guns. I mean I guess they always need to be ready but it seemed a bit... much.

That does seem a bit much. I guess for some people it's a power/safety thing.

There is no need to explain yourself. There is no shame in staring at a policeman’s pink pistol as he grips it firmly in his hand.

So her instagram story is her walking through an airport (she’s going on holiday) talking about it and then starting to cry before ending video abruptly with the tag line “sorry couldn’t fight back the tears” :fp:

Trump: "answer hate with love, answer cruelty with kindness"

Has that old orange idiot ever done that? How Americans can bear to listen to his bullshit is beyond me.

Meanwhile, he plans to cut millions from background check organisations and wants to deport millions of kids :roll:

Pledges to do more for mental health though, which only seems to come up when the perpetrator is white.

I've given up hoping that his supporters would care about what he says unless they agree with him.
Thinking they can be swayed by facts or reason about pretty much anything is just a laughable prospect at this point.

It's like the idea that Fox News are now attacking fact checking organisations and saying that they're full of liberals and as such somehow the facts they only check conservative lies and that because they check more from that side that shows bias. The simple idea that they check Trump more because he lies constantly is beyond them.

Donald Trump's Twitter banner is a group photo with him giving a thumbs up, in front of an aerial photograph of the school where 17 people were just murdered.

Fetch me old brown trousers, bring them to me now, I'll wear them in the rigging as they fire across the bow. Fetch me old brown trousers, I fear we may be hit, for even if they shoot me now, they'll never see me... ;)

Trump has zero ability to empathise.
He also has zero ability to take on board any kind of criticism so he never learns from his mistakes so I fully expect this will happen again and his supporters to be so tone deaf that they will back him even when he's being completely inappropriate.
Expecting people to smile and seem happy after such an event is about as inappropriate as you can get unless he turns up at actual funerals for a campaign rally which honestly wouldn't surprise me.
The fact that he's doing nothing about guns while cutting funding for treating mental health issues is just yet more reason to see his time in office as crazy.

As Gunman Rampaged Through Florida School, Armed Deputy ‘Never Went In’

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — The only armed sheriff’s deputy at a Florida high school where 17 people were killed took cover outside rather than charging into the building when the massacre began, the Broward County sheriff said on Thursday. The sheriff also acknowledged that his office received 23 calls related to the suspect going back a decade, including one last year that said he was collecting knives and guns, but may not have adequately followed up.

The deputy, Scot Peterson, resigned on Thursday after being suspended without pay after Sheriff Scott Israel reviewed surveillance video.

“He never went in,” Sheriff Israel said in a news conference. He said the video showed Deputy Peterson doing “nothing.”

“There are no words,” said Sheriff Israel, who described himself as “devastated, sick to my stomach.”

Two other deputies were placed on restricted duty on Thursday because they may have mishandled tips called in to the sheriff’s office over the past two years warning that the suspect, Nikolas Cruz, appeared intent on becoming a school shooter, Sheriff Israel said.

The revelations added to a growing list of failures and missed signs by the authorities that might have helped prevent one of the deadliest school shootings in American history.

The F.B.I. received a tip last month from someone close to Mr. Cruz that he owned a gun and had talked of committing a school shooting, the bureau revealed last week, acknowledging that it had failed to investigate. The tip about Mr. Cruz appeared to be the second in four months, after another person told the bureau about an online comment apparently posted by Mr. Cruz that he wanted to become “a professional school shooter.”

Sounds like he froze through fear. Which is understandable if that is the case. Another possibility would be that he was ordered not to do it.

His inaction is extremely regrettable though. Someone has clearly failed at their job.

Armed with what though? Going in single handed with a pistol against a semi automatic rifle sounds like a death sentence unless you happen to be John Wick.
