17 people were shot to death yesterday at a High School in Broward County Florida. Every time we have a mass shooting, the conversation moves immediately to gun control.
My question is about Social Media. The shooter who we won’t dignify with a name was on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. The shooter vowed on YouTube to massacre school kids. His comment was, “I’m going to be a professional school shooter”. A YouTube user reported the comment and it was flagged by the FBI, but they were not able to find out who made the comment.
The shooter had several gun and knife selfies on Facebook making it obvious to all around him that he was obsessed with guns.
There are many things that need to change to prevent this horrific act from happening again, but would you give a little privacy to let Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and all the rest report this activities to the Police and FBI?
