Have you heard about the school board shooting in FL?

A disgruntled, mentally disturbed man holds 6 school board members hostage at gunpoint while he rants and raves about different grievances. Then he aims right at the superintendent and fires. The man is shot by the security guard in the leg, he fires 3 more shots at the board members, then kills himself. The superintendent was UNHARMED... wow!
Here is the video:

  • Yeah, sweet. He was on probation for stalking and shooting at an ex girlfriend. I think they should have been watching him closer. Either that or the shrink he was supposed to be going to wasn't paying attention.

    The laws about mentally ill people and how was can treat them need to change. Scary man to think HOW MANY mentally unstable people are just walking around...
