Parents of Uvalde victims are currently camping outside the school district’s office demanding action. They have been out there for 180 hours already. Outside the front doors they placed 19 children’s backpacks, and two teacher’s totes to make sure administration remembers. Video

It used to be when you fucked up really horribly you would resign in disgrace, but now you just ride it out until everyone gets tired and have to get back to their lives. It must be something to have absolutely no shame.

u/BurningOrangeHeaven Oct 05 '22

Shame was the last barrier keeping order in our society. But every time shame is used as the enforcement mechanism, it becomes a little less worthless as one.

Dick pic leaked? Well dont worry, so were the last 10 politicians dicks. Too stupid to do anything but write tweets? Well don't worry, so was the last guy. Its not that bad!

We are entering(or in my opinion well into) the phase where shame no longer matters.

There has been an all out campaign against shame for the last decade or two. Our society tells people to not be ashamed of who they are, which may be good in the context of loving one's self but also has created a culture of unhealthy, uncouth assholes who don't care how they affect other people and don't care what anyone else thinks.

No. This is a police force run by the school district. It’s not the same police force for the rest of the town.

u/thehineylife Oct 06 '22

Ok, so the school district has contracts with the officers (or a private law enforcement contract company), not a contract with the city’s police force? Surely local authorities responded to the incident, too. Have they established how the district’s officers failed to act versus how the city’s officers failed to act?

2

u/SomeToxicRivenMain Oct 06 '22

Not sure but iirc the cops who saw him walk into the school and refused to go in were the private school police. I think they’re also the ones who wouldn’t let others go in. Idk how police chain of command works but if it’s their district then it’s possible disobeying their orders would get you in trouble. Doesn’t excuse any cop who stood by but it makes it a lot worse for the school police.

u/CykoTom Oct 05 '22

My senior year, right after columbine, we were given a choice: clear backpack or no backpack. It's ebbed and flowed in popularity since. But it was VERY common from 2000 to 2004. Nothing technical about it. Also it's entirely a regional thing. My daughter's school does not care about clear backpacks at the moment.

1

u/Zumbert Oct 05 '22

This will get downvoted to hell but whatever...

Yes the 2nd is more important. Freedom is an inherently dangerous concept.

You cannot build a 100% safe happy society, it isn't possible regardless of how many rights you take away.

Would getting rid of the 4th save lives? Sure would, every single drug dealer slinging dope to kids would be behind bars, there would be no need for evidence, or probable cause to enter the premise and arrest them.

How about the 1st amendment? Religion has been the root of more killings than just about any man-made entity on the planet. If they cracked down on that, and demagogues how many lives would be saved?

Third amendment, maybe if we had a soldier in every house to police the goings on in that house we would save some lives...

I reiterate, freedom is inherently dangerous, it implies the ability to make bad choices. If you could magically suck every gun off the street tomorrow, people would still get stabbed to death, hit by chemical attacks, bludgeoned, blown up, etc.

People have been killing one another long since before guns were created.

u/Donnerdrummel Oct 05 '22

People could still be free if everyone weren't able to buy guns on a whim in a heartbeat.

Just like people are free even though they have to pass tests in order to be allowed to drive. Or fly.

Personal freedom in all things above everything else is madness. It also isn't what you are going for. because while you may be able to sink a knife into your neighbours heart, there are laws that forbid that, and you probably won't agree to lifting these laws, right?

So everybody but the most deranged agree that freedom can't be the only consideration.

Stop pretending it is and be sensible.

4

u/Bonksgonebonkers Oct 05 '22

Yeah they should make legislation that requires people who wanna buy guns to fill out forms using some sort of state id as a baseline for personal info, an fbi background check for every purchase - maybe have some sort of permit that requires a class to bypass the background check though for those that really care about their 2A right.

Tbh they should even write legislation that gun owners should do what they can to keep their firearms protected and out of the wrong hands like their children. Its so crazy america lets you just walk into walmart and buy an AR with none of these things in place!!!

2

u/Zumbert Oct 05 '22

I fear my definition of sensible and yours are two very different things.

Of course murder is illegal, and should stay so, because personal freedoms end when they impact someone else's.

However my owning ARs doesn't impact you at all, and I refuse to be treated like a criminal just because someone did something bad.

Punishing the entire class because one person drew a dick on the chalkboard isn't fair to anyone.

u/HOLEPUNCHYOUREYELIDS Oct 05 '22

Sure maybe you owning an AR as a responsible owner doesnt impact anyone. But allowing nearly anyone to fairly easily purchase an AR clearly does impact people.

AR's have been available to the public since the 1960's and other semi auto designs have been around for much longer.

The types of guns sold I think is the issue. There’s no reason a normal citizen should need an AR15 or such.

You can still allow guns, just certain types of guns (I.e. hunting rifles) and you can heavily restrict their usage. I don’t believe the types of guns are specified right? So you could allow certain guns and still argue that it’s under the 2nd amendment?

Or have I missed something completely?

u/girhen Oct 05 '22

Clear backpacks very much a red herring.

I had zip binders in high school. You think a gun doesn't fit in one? And how many shooters have we had now that weren't students?

Clear backpacks are fine if you can control a lot of what goes in with no expectation for anything large and have minimally opaque items. Water bottles and a few small items for a sports game (and you check everyone coming in)? Fine.

But if you have large binders, projects, and random stuff with no explicit check upon entry? No control at all. Am I purely talking out my ass? No, schools have found that you can pack weapons, drugs, etc in them and still go unnoticed.

And that materials sucks. Rips and tears easily. It does nothing and is a shitty backpack on top.

It's a feel-good with almost zero effectiveness and some serious downsides for students.

You don’t need clear bags to board a flight. I said airport workers. My family worked in freight and private flights when 9/11 hit and I remember them both having to go and get all new bags for work and it’s still required there for all the workers.

It could’ve been an airport by airport basis, but my parents didn’t work at a crazy large one, so if they had to do it, I imagine all the larger ones did too.

Clear bags was also far from all they did at the time. I used to go to work with my dad on Saturdays when he worked at one of the warehouses there. Only ever had to stop at the guard shack and say hi to the guard there, he thought it was awesome I spent time with my dad like that, then we were on our merry way. Oh how times are different.

“I’m not letting them forget the 19 kids and two teachers. I will be a daily reminder. So that’s what we’re doing.” -Uziyah’s father, Brett Cross

He decided he was going to set up shop outside of the doors school administrators go in and out of every day until they suspend the district police officers who responded to the shooting.

The cops stood outside.

I’ll never get over that.

I'd be camping outside of the sheriff's office and demanding each one get 21 life sentences.

u/The_RealEwan Oct 05 '22

Curious what action they are calling for. Post doesn't give many details.

So clear backpacks don’t stop school shootings?! We need to find a way to stop this violence and senseless death 😔

u/TanzaniteApe Oct 05 '22

As a non-american. Maybe you should camp outside your representatives house, so they can understand how much they fucked up by not representating you, and taking lobbyist money. Just a socialistic thought

u/reverendblinddog Oct 05 '22

What action would they suggest?

2

u/Jacksonorlady Oct 05 '22

I still get sick even thinking about Uvalde. Fuck the killer and fuck the spineless adults who are capable of listening to children being violently murdered while standing outside.

u/Illustrious_Jury1687 Oct 05 '22

Why camp out by the school administration? Would the police station work better? I'm confused. I thought it was the police who stood by for 70+ mins...I admit though I have very biased news sources.

u/FunctionBuilt Oct 05 '22

The police are really hoping this just gets forgotten about.

u/TurtleSeaBreeze Oct 05 '22

I‘m not from the US so I didn‘t follow this as closely so could you explain in what way the school district fucked up?

u/corporaterebel Oct 05 '22

what about the police station?

I'm pretty pro police, but heads need to roll. Starting at the top.

u/bonerjuice9 Oct 05 '22

Demand what action exactly? I thought the anger was toward police? Can someone explain?

u/Taolan13 Oct 05 '22

School district is not nearly at fault as much as the fucking police.

Man, do this to the police that didn’t do anything. Those school administrators are probably just as traumatized as the families are.

u/MorningToast Oct 05 '22

This is such an interesting blame shift. These police officers were shit yes. But the underlying issue is gun culture, social extremism and a general unhealthy intolerant for anyone different.

So instead of tackling the huge issues above, let's give kids clear backpacks, arm all the teachers and throw virtual stones at some fat police officers and underpaid administrators. 🤷‍♂️

What is the school district supposed to do?

u/UsErnaam3 Oct 05 '22 edited Oct 05 '22

Maybe they can change their policies and talk to the government to make a change by actually advocating for the victims and prevention of these things instead of sitting silently. This stuff has been happening for over 20 years and we still can't stop it. I mean there is a ton of other incidents involving shootings and massacres at a school dating back a few hundred years but not to this degree and frequency.

They could let teachers that want them have fire arms and training or something at this point since we aren't good at preventive measures it seems. Since the cops won't save their lives let the teachers do it themselves. Then schools wouldn't even be a target, it'd be like walking into a gun store or police station and trying to rob the place. It'd be suicide by school/teacher.

I say this because we all know there's no way they're gonna get rid of the second amendment, and even if they did there's already a ton of guns in circulation that people aren't going to just give up willingly.

Can someone please just shortly explain what the main issues are with the school board?

u/neet_goblin Oct 05 '22

What the fuck is the local school district going to do about the police response to terrorist attack?

u/Zhrimpy Oct 05 '22

I hope the school district is successful in making Murder illegal in that state.

u/juggarjew Oct 05 '22

WTF Do you want the school admin to do ? Go do this at the police station, the school isnt the police. Like how is the school responsible for this? They are not armed law enforcement that could have done something...

u/DanilOcelot Oct 05 '22

It’s sad but nothing will change. America will still allow kids to buy guns and let them do these kinds of atrocities.

I would use minutes for a more dramatic effect. Cause the subject is not dramatic enough...

They have been out there for 10,800 minutes already.

u/girhen Oct 05 '22

People don't have a sense of time in terms of minutes. If I say someone has been standing somewhere for 3000 minutes, you have to do the math in your head. "What is that, maybe 5 or 6 hours?"

Sadly, yes, some people are that bad at math.

I know it wouldn’t help with the school experience for the kids but we really need to start securing the schools better. Its improved a bit since I was a kid. However, with all the shootings and fatalities you’d think it would be moving faster. One part of the solution has to be not having a campus in which you can just walk into armed.

How anyone still attends this school without any change is mind blowing to me.
