When I heard female gunman at a private school, this is what that made me think I'd find.
Not to justify, whatsoever... but would be an interesting track for any interested journalists to pursue - racketeering to protect leaders sexually abusing children. casetext.com/case/davis-v-c…
The less legalistic analysis:
If some parents are concerned about 'questionable' books, let parents manage their own children's access.
Schools provide 'unsubscriptions' that keep those kids from checking out books parents don't want.
Integrate those 'unsubscriptions' into the library management system, and if a student tries to check out a book they shouldn't, simply don't allow attempts to check out books to be completed...
Or keep a list taped to the desk. Add a 'restriction' sticker to their student id.

Don't forget - Trump warned that this would happen, and loosened Dodd-Frank regulations to enable it.
Investigators should be required to publicly identify who was tied to any large withdrawals that precipitated this event... if not by name, by generic desc + motivation.
if, say, he had learned he had some kind of degenerative health issue, any kind of pressure he felt on himself to find glory through, say, rebuilding the "Russian empire," would be put on an accelerated timetable...

A) ANOTHER Tesla-fire engine crash at an accident scene???
B) you can't tell me that it's impossible to automatically disable any auto-driving features at speed within a 5 mile radius of known roadway hazards... shit, in CA, CHP even gives you lat/lng sfgate.com/bayarea/articl…
Of course, legislation to mandate disabling autodriving features around known hazards wouldn't prevent EVERY incident, but raw guess w/o research -> it would take out AT LEAST 80% of opportunities for incidents, up to 100% for dispatched responses.

On a serious note, though - it is obvious that China wanted us to see it here.
My take: CN drives domestic political division at a time convenient to RU, giving the GOP an excuse to withhold additional aid to Ukraine in the weeks before intensifying effort surrounding Feb 24.
So, the bomb was on a timer set to go off 11 hours later, which was 7:03pm. But the flight was scheduled to depart at 5pm so departure was 1:25 delayed. I haven't seen anyone address this delay - what caused it?
It should have been out over open ocean by then, right?
Note that the crash over land allowed the incident to be both 'branded' and investigated much more differently than possible over the sea, where they wouldn't have found 90% of the wreckage.

CSAM includes both real and simulated imagery of children (real or simulated) engaged in sexual activity.
There is currently CSAM that has been visible on Twitter for 2 hours, it has been reported and has not been taken down.
Is @elonmusk allowing it to stay up intentionally?
Though it's not the first time I've seen CSAM on Twitter, this is the first time I've seen politically motivated CSAM.
Allowing content to remain visible without moderation with several reports in the span of 2 hours should be criminal.

this is important.
i’d go after his friends at the airlines too. somebody managed all those buddy passes….
It doesn't sound nuts, @chrislhayes - it was clear that Trump was setting Pence up for death threats - don't forget his lawyer Lin Wood courted QAnon and accused Pence of being a pedophile the night before the insurrection. lawandcrime.com/high-profile/t…
I called it - BEFORE the insurrection.
I can't find the tweet about him "putting a hit" out on Pence, though. Odd.
Point #1: MEDIA-STOP TREATING USE OF PHRASES DESCRIBING VIOLENCE AS METAPHOR.
Seriously. Doesn't matter what the claimed intent behind use of a phrase is - it's the responsibility of people with a large platform to use appropriate language to avoid misinterpretation.
If someone says they're declaring war against Congress - stop accepting it as metaphor.
Treat it as a legitimate threat.
