The Parkland shooter admitted to a psychiatrist that he had planned a school massacre for over 5 years. He looked at previous shootings and studied what previous shooters had done. He learned to pie corners, he learned police response times, he learned to not let people get close.

He knew that he would have 20 minutes to carry out his plan without police interference.

Think about that while carrying in your day to day life. The shooter has a plan, he has the initiative, and you will be playing catchup.

News we can use.

That level of pre-meditation should obviate any insanity plea, and take this to capital punishment territory.

Hopefully with a happy (lethal injection) ending, in some haste.

What does “He learned to pie corners” mean? Never heard that term.

    See this link:

    The article mostly has it correct, but when using the technique, I stay within a foot of the wall I am NOT using for cover. It gives you more control over movement, allows you better mobility, better vision, and the extra three feet or so of shooting distance should be inconsequential to marksmanship.

      Huh. I never knew that’s what they called it.

      While I’m not a fan of the government killing people who are already in jail, defenseless, and unable to continue to harm humanity…I think this guy is an exception.

        I support the death penalty in theory, but oppose it in practice. by that, I mean that once a person has shown that he holds the lives and rights of others in such low regard that he would deprive people of them needs to be prevented from doing so again. There is only one way to ensure that. That is theory.

        In practice, I don’t trust the government and its employees to not put a dishonest or unconstitutional thumb on the scale, thereby putting someone to death who did not deserve to be. If we as a society put even one innocent man to death, then we are all guilty of murder. There is no taking that back.

        At least with a life prison sentence, you can give the wrongly convicted back a portion of their lives.
