On Wednesday, three male students, one who is 16 and two that are 17 were shot as the school day neared its end. This incident took place near the cities largest public school, Brashear High School that has 1416 students. Terrified parents had to wait for their students to be released after school, while the police department and swat team looked for the shooter.

The alleged shooter is 16 years old and has a had a prior physical incident with the victims last month. Police are viewing the incident as revenge for the drug related fight. Investigators revealed that the teens were not being cooperative and did not disclose any further information. Mark Bocia, head of the Pittsburgh Emergency Medical Service stated the “injuries were not life-threatening”.

The police spokeswoman Diane Richard stated, “This whole incident … may have been related over something that happened a month ago,”.
Richard said the fight that occurred at the school on October 18th “quite possibly could be drug-related.”

During a press conference held for the Pittsburgh shooting on the same day as the shooting, Lt. Kevin Kraus with the Pittsburgh Police confirmed that a 16 year old male was arrested for aggravated assault, attempted homicide, and other chargers related directly to the shooting. The police felt that the teenager acted independently and was driven to retaliate based on the earlier incident. Kraus stated that the other teens questioned in police custody were let go.

Many people are looking for real answers regarding the string of school shootings and the conflicting information that follows during each investigation. The representative from the Pittsburgh Police Department Diane Richard in the video below states that there were men plural that came out of the woods, and that “units are looking for actors”.

    I find all this very funny. I am in my 40s. In the first 38 years of my life, I know of maybe 2 real incidents of school shootings. Yet, in the past few years and since they have made a push to take guns, there is literally 2 school shootings a week. If there isn’t a real shooting, it is at least a false alarm or a “drill”.

    Listen, gun and crazy people existed in the first 38 years of my life. I find it very hard to believe society just went crazy overnight. Since 9/11, there has been a program put in place to make everyone one afraid. It is non-stop. Everything from movies to TV to nightly news. It has culminated in all our freedoms being taken away and the next step is to take the guns. A population without guns cannot defend itself and I think this is the ultimate goal.

    I actually hate guns personally. I don’t like violence, but now, I think this is one time that we must really protect the people’s right to guns. Look at what is happening in the United States: Which country in the world locks up the most people? Which country spys the most? Which country has the most control at its borders and airports? Which country plans for martial law? Which country has the most laws period? Which country is flying drones over its own country? Which country is financing nano drones so that they can be given to all member of law enforcement at the county level? Which country is creating an internet infrastructure that will centralize all citizen records into a single file? Which country is putting security cameras on every street corner and within every traffic light? Which country is increasing capacity so that facial recognition can be run on those cameras? Which country has had a rash of lone, crazy gunman who killed key political figures? Which country is compiling a national DNA database and is pursuing the collection of DNA of infants at hospitals?

    Can you imagine, with all these things in place, what would happen to people who can’t defend themselves? They would be enslaved in a heartbeat.
