JSC Radio Ep. 67: Parkland

PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  So, it happened. Again. But are we really shocked? On Valentine’s Day, less than six months after the horrific massacre in Las Vegas, the third worst school shooting in American history — and the third major US school shooting of the decade — occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. There were 17 deaths, a majority of them being kids. It exceeded the horrid death toll at Columbine High School in 1999, but fell short of the massacres at Virginia Tech and Sandy Hook. That there is even a ranking is galling.

This is the third episode that will address a horrific mass shooting — Episode 11 was the first. Episode 52 was the second. This one, however, is infuriating for a different reason. Unlike Las Vegas, which was a gross display of abuse of this country’s insane ability to stockpile guns, or Orlando — which was used by conservatives as an excuse to target Muslim Americans rather than address guns, this shooting was a combination of our worst fears: lax gun laws, incompetent law enforcement, incompetent leadership on all levels, and the disgusting world that is 2018’s American social media.

A 19-year-old dude with a history of violent, racist behavior was able to walk into a school with an AR-15 and slaughter a baseball team’s worth of kids. There was armed security there — and it turns out they actually ran and hid while the shooting occurred — Plus, in what has become sadly typical, a number of scumbags are accusing the surving kids of being “crisis actors” and claiming that they are being “paid” to protest. WTF, dude!?

This week is a monologue on Parkland, gun control, the corrupt union that is the NRA and the GOP, and when will this country take finally take responsibility for what it has wrought with its strident love of firearms — and whether that will happen with this clownish president at the helm.
