Assuredly, the SPLC is scrambling to see if there is anyway this can be pinned on the Alt-Right:
“PARKLAND, FLA. (WSVN) – UPDATE: There are reports from other news agencies that as many as 16 people were killed in Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass shooting. BSO has yet to confirm this number.
The Broward County Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie has confirmed there have been “numerous fatalities” following a shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland by a former student. …”

Why does this happen?
I don’t know. It has been happening since I was in high school in the late 1990s. It was going on even before that. We keep churning out these isolated, depressed, mentally ill kids. They can kill themselves and check out while drawing attention to their own pathetic lives on cable television.
CNN is saying the shooter’s name is Nicholas Cruz. It is worth noting though that we live in an age when George Zimmerman and Elliot Rodger have been labeled “Alt-Right” or “white supremacist.”
