Bloodbath at Sanfa Fe, Texas school

This photo is about a demonstration by high school students in Santa Fe, Texas, USA against mass gun violence in the USA, especially against people at schools.

The Twitter hash tag #NeverAgain refers to the bloodbath at a Florida school, by a neonazi murderer. It should never happen again. But it did happen again; today at Santa Fe High School. In the surroundings of which, like at many other places in the USA, it is much easier to get a lethal gun than to get many other items.

I wish recovery and strength to all injured people and survivors of this terrible crime. We should never forget the murdered persons.

At the moment, motives for the bloodshed are still unclear.

From CNN in the USA:

A second person, 18, in police custody, is believed to be a possible accomplice in Friday’s shooting, a law enforcement official says.

Ten people were killed and several others injured in a shooting Friday morning at a high school in the southeastern Texas city of Santa Fe, a law enforcement official said on condition of anonymity.

Gunfire erupted at Santa Fe High School, about 20 miles outside Galveston, not long after classes began around 7:30 a.m. CT, officials said. Authorities later found explosive devices — including pipe bombs and pressure cookers — in and near the school, the law enforcement official said.

A male suspect, believed to be a student, has been arrested in the shooting, and a second person — also believed to be a student — has been detained as well, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said.

One man is in critical condition with a gunshot wound in one of his arms, said David Marshall, chief nursing officer for University of Texas Medical Branch hospital.

This is the 22nd US school shooting since the beginning of the year, and the third instance in eight days in which a gunman was on a school campus.

Witnesses described students running from the school as they heard gunshots; they also described hearing an alarm at the school, though the sequence of events wasn’t immediately clear.

Authorities found explosive devices in the high school and in adjacent areas, said Walter Braun, Santa Fe Independent School District police chief. It wasn’t immediately clear if any had exploded. …

An armed person walked into an art class at the school and began firing what looked like a shotgun, a witness told CNN affiliate KTRK.

The witness told KTRK she saw a girl shot in the leg.

At least 12 people from the school are being treated at three hospitals, authorities said. Seven people are at Clear Lake Regional Medical in Webster, Texas; two patients are being treated at Mainland Medical Center in Texas City and three patients are at John Sealy University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston.

From the Houston Chronicle in Texas, USA, today:

Houston lawmaker: ‘Y’all been sending thoughts and prayers for two freaking decades’

This is a tweet by that Texas state representative, aimed at people like the National Rifle Association and Donald Trump.

This tweet may contain a clue to motives for this mass murder.

  2. Do you think the parents of the Santa Fe dead children are proud to have donated their kid’s lives for the good of the NRA? Will they get a trophy, a medal or a plaque to commemorate their child’s service? Will they stand proud with their hands over their hearts knowing that their child died so that Dana Loesch can go pump bullets through an AR15 any darn time she feels like it?

    I wish all congress people and Donald were required to walk through schools where mass shootings have just taken place, to see first hand the carnage and bullet riddled bodies. Would they then be able to say that this was an acceptable amount of human sacrifice on the shrine of NRA privilege?

    Too bad Donald didn’t do EVERYTHING IN HIS POWER before they got dead! Too bad his speech is all just words and he still won’t do A SINGLE THING in his power, even as he steps over their blood spattered bodies on the way to a campaign rally.

      There is a possibility Trump and his supporters will do still worse than doing nothing: carry on with their plan to bring guns to schools.
