I always thought it was dumb to have such an elaborate camera system in these meetings. I guess this is one time (and prob. the last ) where it was useful.
Now HERE's an example of "not letting a good crisis go to waste".

Sorry don't agree with you. If my kids were still in school and my mate would allow it without a fuss, I'd listen to a televised school board meeting too. I think it's a GREAT idea. It allows you to see what really goes on in these meetings without having to maybe waste your time driving there. You learn a little about those who make the policy decisions for your kids in school. I liken it to CSpan and am thankful for it. And if you don't know, SHAME on you. No knowledge is wasted in this sense. If you learn that the meetings don't do any good, then that tells you something: don't vote in that person for the board next time.

After seeing the mug shot of this dude, there was little doubt he was a product of a brother/sister parenthood.

He definetely had serious issues

this is an awesome display of civil justice and the second amendment right. the gunman was clearly there to end the life of not only the super and possible staff, but himself. he wanted everyone to see it like it was right out of hollywood. the red v w/circle....movies. why i love this story, mr. Mike Jones was carrying on the scene, chief of security for school board(ret. p.c. pd). thank you Mike, you know how to shoot and do it without hesitation. this bum didnt see that coming and that is the beauty everywhere of concealed carry. a trouble maker thinks he has it all figured out, until he gets capped by a real hero of a gunman. salute to you, Mike.

Mike did hesitate...from the time Ginger hit Clay Duke with her purse until the first shots were fired.

I think he should have interceded prior to that instead of waiting for backup.

I am not saying Mike was wrong for shooting the guy, but why wait so long and why shoot that many times.

I wish the video was not edited so much to cover up the facts.

These kids n the Fl. schools systems are being taught to be prisoners of the state.

Once graduated, they can't read, count.

The socialist teachers union prevents the
cteachers from doing what "we" pay them to do.

All public school systems are operated by liberals and marxist.

We rsnk 28th in the world.
The teachers have opened the door to this country,
to China and Brazil, to steal our future.

The progressive school systems are intentionally enslaving us.
And hence, although the shooter may not be smart.
And the shoter may not have used the right reason.
I'm still giving the shooter, and extra credit,
and an "A", for creativity, and balls.

BTW, I think Palm Beach is still counting the ballots.

One day the Democratic Republican government is going to learn you can't keep pushing people around. If you corner something it will fight back. Another American citizen murdered.

Your right.

Target practice is a must prior to entering a county building to kill progressive elites.

Florida LEO's lack training.
Florida has no police academies,
Just community junior public schools, giving the county one more reason to tap federal funding, for local chronies. County,by county

Slow learners never learned history.
History is the last thing Gov. wants the public to know about.
Don't worry. New lessons on the horizon...

you are the stupist person to ever leave a name....your whole thopught process is a damn joke.

as far as the rest of you, wtf?

you all seem to condone this action. there are no progressive/liberal/conservati ve correlation to a destraught gunman wanting to play "v for vendetta" on closed circuit tv. get outta here.

mike didnt shoot prior, because obiosly had he mafe the decision and it been wrong, he would be guilty. the old woman with purse did what she did, mike couldnt engage then, if he had, she was in the ine of fire, mo threat was directly made to the woman from the gunman, so no need. mikes first shot should have been fired as the gunman raised the gun and pointed it at the super, but in the moment, its hard to justify anything other than what he did. bravo to him and the baord for keeping cool.

LEO's are the prime in this area, so stfu!

Are you crazy? Hey, I agree that education in this country has gone to the dogs, but somehow I DON'T think THIS is the answer. You have an elected board right? Well you need also to have a procedure to remove said individual(s) if they prove to be a bad thing. And you need parents to know what's going on and help on a panel to determine whether or not a person should be removed.
For example, if a teacher has bad teaching methods, say of humiliation, or a hands off on discipline, that teacher should be removed. But say having a teacher removed for example simply because they happen to be a Christian, and a parent is an atheist; that's frivolous and capricious.
WHY did this guy do this? Was it simply a case of excessive stress; or did he raise red flags to the board and they wouldn't listen and he became desparate?
Florida elections are underminded by fraud.
For example, 1 Acorn vote = 1300.

Also, an election here in Palm Beach
Abrams (lawyer) VS Ex Judge Wennet.
Abrams won.
But the "privatly owned Florida Bar" retro-activly" suspended his membership and almost disbarred him for winning.

Wennet back dated a complaint to the Florida Bar,
when Abrams was practicing before Wennet.

It was Wennet complaint that prevented Wennet from letting Abrams win.

You watch way too much T.V.

Your suggestion is fictional

My examples are real.

Nice idea, however extremely unlikely anyone would bat an eyelash in the criminal community. The nation should be under martial law for a few years. It would indeed finally call all the troops home because of the sheer size of the nation they would have to police.
The moment police realized SWAT and bomb squad and other specialty units were required the entire nation should have been held under arrest (which is basically what happens when martial law is declared) Our society is too sick, and the populace is just getting worse. Soon our nation will crumble

Hey Wes, why are they editing the fire our of the video?

What are they covering up?

I don't trust anyone around these parts...including you.

I don't blame Mike for shooting the guy, but I know Mike is a loose cannon sometimes and why he hesitated I just can't comprehend.

He did not have to shoot the guy after the purse incident, but he sure could have averted his attention and interceded.

If there is a cover-up it sure wouldn't be the first time....but I wish it would be the last!

Clay Duke is not a martyr, he was just crazy and foolish.

Mean people suck! All of them!
