    Questions

    Post  sinister_midget on Thu Feb 22, 2018 6:43 pm

    Out of all of his writing, this is the one that echoes what I said:

    Why has the school district decided to demolish this building (like they did Sandy Hook) if their narrative is true and correct? Why not allow the forensics to be published and explored completely? Make it the offices of school safety as a monument even- But I digress.

    He has some other excellent points. Some of which I also wondered about.

    I've not been able to find any legitimate info regarding planned demolition of the buildings associated with this latest shooting. I personally see no reason for destroying buildings unless something has resulted in them being construction wise unsound, and thus physically endangering people accessing them. Repairing or upgrading seems a better choice unless doing so costs more than clearing the building and starting over from scratch.

    There is no GOOD reason to tear the place down. But they'd abandon it just the same so being in there won't traumatize the very obviously shaken kids from California and elsewhere who just happened to be there that day despite having already graduated at least 3 years ago. I realize that part, though I think it's dumb. The people who act like this after a tragedy are a large part of why so many of the current crop of people are weak and unstable when it comes to life in general. They're just doing what they always do to "protect the children" from reality.

    What gets me is the decision to tear it down almost immediately after the occurrence. Without a peep from the investigative people. Including the FBI, local police and whomever else is involved. Not a whimper from any of them. Usually after something like this happens they investigate. Even if they already know everything, they dig out clues. They look for bullets, take samples, look over where people who were shot were standing or hiding, try to figure out if anybody else may have been involved (there were claims - unsubstantiated - that there were 2 shooters), basically go over everything. Sometimes multiple times by different people.

    I can halfway understand somebody in the school system ignorantly catering to the lowest common denominator by feeding into their insecurity rather than trying to make them grow up. What I can't understand is the investigative people not making any noise about delaying that until they've sufficiently gone over everything. If they're letting it happen too soon, they're trying to hide something, playing their latest ineptness card, or they want to help the weak little babies stay weak little babies. Maybe even a combination of all three.

    I, for one, hope they do their jobs after the fact and make destruction wait until they've done what needs to be done. They certainly didn't do their jobs beforehand. None of them, right down to the local cops who should have been making noises about background checks around the 20th or 30th or 39th time they had to go deal with the unstable dufus. I hope they're delaying the destruction and they're just not saying anything out loud about it.

    I've found a news article that states the Broward County school board has asked the Florida State Legislature to provide $28,500,000.00  to them to demolish and rebuild building # 12. That includes $450,000 to build a memorial to the students who died. It also states that legislators have agreed to provide those funds and assured them the funds will be provided to them. The article does not identify any legislators who have done so.

    As a Florida taxpayer I protest funding for this unnecessary pile of dung expenditure.  Tearing down & replacing a building solely for emotional reasons doesn't justify the expenditure. Get a maintenance clean up crew busy and if necessary add a paint/carpentry crew. If residents of that county want to pay for it that is one thing, but to require me to is another. If Mr. Cruz does indeed have a trust fund as reported by some news sources, a lien against it would help fund the cleanup and funding for any memorial should come from private citizen donations.
