These Shooting’s Dont Seem Normal and If they are then America has raised their Kids to Kill if they don’t get their way
US police named the killer in America’s latest school shooting as 15-year-old Jared Michael Padgett, saying he had multiple weapons and could have killed more.
Padgett, who carried his guns in a guitar-case and duffel bag and wore a camouflage helmet, killed himself after shooting one student dead at Reynolds High School in Oregon, they said.
He obtained his weapons – a military-style AR-15 type rifle, a semi-automatic pistol, a large knife and hundreds of rounds of ammunition – from a locker at his family home.
“The weapons had been secured, but he defeated the security measures,” said Scott Anderson, police chief of Troutdale, outside Portland where Tuesday’s attack took place.
After arriving on a school bus, Padgett entered a boys’ locker room, where he murdered 14-year-old Emilio Hoffman. A teacher, Todd Rispler, suffered a grazing bullet wound to the hip as he fled.
Despite his injury, Rispler made his way to the school office to sound the lockdown alarm, as Padgett – dressed in a jacket designed to carry ammunition and a camouflage sports helmet – emerged from the locker room.
“As the shooter was moving through the main hallway he encountered officers who were starting to enter from two separate hallways. At that time he moved into a small restroom,” Anderson said.
“There was an exchange of gunfire between one of the first responding officers and the shooter,” he said, adding that, based on an autopsy, “The shooter died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.”
Anderson hailed the role of Rispler and the first responding officers. “I cannot emphasise enough the role that Mr Rispler and the responding officers in saving many, many lives yesterday,” he said.
The Oregon shooting was the fourth in three weeks in the western the United States, following incidents in Santa Barbara, California, Seattle, and Las Vegas last weekend.
On Tuesday, President Barack Obama called for national “soul searching,” saying mass shootings were “off the charts” in a way that no other advanced country would tolerate.

DON SUNDEEN [DJ/Hi Records promotion/TV ad production] (Dallas, TX) Subject: Jazz legends. This is great stuff. One of my fondest memories is the 15 mins. I spent alone with Louis Armstrong during intermission in a Jazz Concert that I promoted in High School to pay to move the Senior Prom from the smelly, old school gym to the Hotel Jamestown Ballroom. I believe that was the one and only Prom to take place in that venue due to other activities that took place in the hotel’s bars and guest rooms later that night. The hotel also contained the studios of WJTN radio, the first place I ever spoke into a live microphone. My mentor there, Jim Roselle, is in his 40th year on the station. Today the hotel is a retirement home…somehow that seems appropriate.

CHARLES GEORGE [ex KCHU FM] (Dallas, TX) As an amateur we are only suppose to use the power to make and keep contact. A good antenna will work better than more power. Also I find the newbies are often better at operating than those who have been around with higher classes of licenses. The newcomers still have it fresh in their minds about what makes for good operating practice. I hear so many talking about Rights but they don’t mention responsibility or accountability unless when talking about others. Like a person running for a Public Office should not be operating a station, they should put the operation in a trust, until after the election they are part of. Also I don’t think money should come from outside of the area that the candidate is running in. 73, Charles George, KC5RAI
TRIVIA ANSWER: In 1960, Ben E. King and The Drifters have a wonderful tune, Save The Last Dance For Me, that reaches #1. The lyrics describe a man who tells his date that she is free to mingle during the evening, but to make sure to save the last dance of the night for him. Legendary songwriter Doc Pomus pens the tune on the day of his wedding. You see, Doc Pomus has polio and needs crutches to get around, but his wife is a Broadway actress and dancer. The wheelchair-bound groom, Doc Pomus, watches his bride who dances with their guests but she must not forget that she goes home with him. Save The Last Dance For Me lands on Billboard on September 9, 1960 and remains #1 for three weeks. Elvis Presley has several hit records with Doc Pomus tunes: (Marie’s The Name) His Latest Flame, Girl Happy, Little Sister, A Mess Of Blues, She’s Not You, Suspicion, Surrender and Viva Las Vegas.

In this world of increasing electronic surveillance, privacy can be hard to come by. Safe places are also in short supply. So when you feel surrounded by trouble, remember this: I am your Hiding Place. Call out to Me, and I will protect you from trouble. I will even surround you with songs of deliverance.
When you praise Me in the midst of a hard day, both you and I are blessed. I come near, and I hide you in the secret place of My Presence.
Rescue me from my enemies, O Lord, for I hide myself in you. -Psalm 143:9
“You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. -Psalm 32:7”
You are holy, O You Who dwell in [the holy place where] the praises of Israel [are offered]. -Psalm 22:3 amp
“You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence from the plots of man; You shall keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues. -Psalm 31:20 nkjv”
One of the best ways to draw upon My strength is to sing praises to Me. I actually dwell in the praises of My people. So when problems are weighing heavily upon you, break free by worshiping Me-in songs, in shouts, even in whispers. These sacred acclamations decimate the darkness and invite Me into your awareness, brightening the atmosphere around you. Problems fade into the background while you are engaged in worshiping Me. Awareness of My Presence strengthens you and fills you with Joy.
