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.

There’s a whole STEAM movement now.

Introducing “Art and Design” to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics

Interior designers, hairstylists...

Something tells me STEM didn’t attract enough FREAKS.

They can no more avoid exploiting a tragedy than sharks can avoid going into a feeding frenzy.

There are tests, fMRI, EEG, and a few others that reliably detect psychopathy.

Politicians are terrified that some day they will be required to take them.

I wonder how few of our "betters" would pass such a test?

She was ‘transgender’.........................

Take a mentally unstable girl and pump her full of testosterone?

What could possibly go wrong?

Thanks for the OAN link. Just deleted the local FOX to replace it with this.

Good points re scientific measurement of the brain/CNS.

Pathology there could cause “mental” problems.

Recently at our church, two women an onset of mental changes, had both EEGs and FMRI’s. One had a cancer and one had an aneurysm. They both had successful operations.

The woman with the cancer removal has returned from psycho bitch (her words), to Nice Lady!

The lady with the aneurysm is back to enjoying life, even if she for the time being needs to use a walker. I bought her a squeeze horn for her walker, and she loves it.

One of the most bizarre (similar) incident, A 25 year old daughter of a friend went rapidly from nice young lady to psycho bitch. The frontal MRI showed some severe TMJ problems. Fortunately she was referred to a super dentist who uses the replaceable dental inserts to correct a severe overbite and other problems. Within a few months the young woman is back to being the nice young lady. Her problems were diagnosed by a neurologist, who looked at her previous MRI requested by an ER doc and referred her to the orthodontist. Who confirmed the TMJ diagnosis.

“This is a girl who “identifies” as a boy.”

OK, I thought it was the other way around. It’s hard to keep track of these things.
