Vigil for victims of Denver school shooting turned into protest Wednesday night

Pro-gun control student group at neighboring school had organized the event and invited Democrat politicians to speak

But STEM High School students became angry when they were denied the microphone and stormed out, chanting 'mental health'

They eventually returned and accused politicians of exploiting their tragedy

=======================================================================

An emotional vigil for one student who was killed and the eight who were wounded during the Denver school shooting turned into an angry protest Wednesday night.

The vigil, held at Highlands Ranch High School, which is close to the tragic STEM School Highlands Ranch, was organized by student gun control group Team Enough.

Democrat congressmen Michael Bennet and Jason Crow were invited to speak, while STEM students were invited to attend the vigil - one of two that took place yesterday.

But, as the political speeches wore on, STEM students became frustrated that they had not been allowed to take the microphone and stormed out.

The students paraded out of the venue holding up lighted cellphones, chanting 'mental health' and shouting expletives at the media.

They eventually made their way back into the gym where students were allowed to take the microphone and get their message across.

STEM kids tend to be much smarter than the average student.

“Just listened to a Faux News report on this shooting. Not a single mention of the leftist LGBT Trump-hating background of the shooters.”

Just another reason why watching to Faux News is a waste of time and electrons.

Free Republic had these two murdering psychopaths identified before the sunset had set in Colorado.

“Including the Jay-Birds who $#*+ on city sidewalks and leave their drug needles around . . . You just can’t normalize the type of behavior the left is trying to normalize because it isn’t normal. Why is that so damn hard to understand?”

About 3 decades ago they would have been in an institution for their safety and ours.

Then the liberals closed many if not most of the institutions that housed, fed and cared for these losers in life.

Then, they released them, and the insane went to the streets to do what you noted.

We are beginning to see secure and locked sharp drop offs containers outside of hospitals and medical clinics here in Californicator land. Many have had these locked sharps containers inside hospitals and clinics for at least a year.
They look like the sturdy blue mail drop off boxes.

My daughter — very good at math and science from early childhood — is a solid conservative, which she developed into with very little guidance from me.

In college, most of her friends are from other countries. Korea, Mauritius, Macenonia, and Vietnam, to name just a few of her friends. She doesn't seem to have very many American friends, perhaps because they're too easily triggered.

Grampa, glad you posted to me - especially on this topic we keep revisiting.

As per our recent discussions I found a new place to get OAN online, while it lasts.

Yeah, one of the big grocery chains in our area announced they were going to start putting those needle/drug drop boxes in by their pharmacies as well. To me, that is just another step on the path of normalizing and trying to civilize behavior which is neither normal nor civilized.

We are seriously thinking about subscribing to one of these delivery services like Instacart so we go out in public that much less and have fewer opportunities to encounter these savages

Jason Crow has turned his back on the oath he took to defend the Constitution with his “common sense gun control” BS. That makes him a bigger POS than my idiot representative Diana degette aka Diana destupid. She is the one who said magazines are one time use only.

We can’t be used as a reason for gun control. We are people...

Another added: 'We wanted Kendrick to be mourned. We wanted all of you to join us in that mourning, but that was not allowed here. We all walked out. We were not kicked out.'

"People" are finding their voices... tired of every tragedy being used to push 'liberal' causes..

Wow, so at least one of the shooters was a GIRL — doped up on testosterone?

Thank a liberal for this.
