The Truth About the Arapahoe High School Shooting

This is too good to not share.

Whether you love Glenn Beck or hate him, his assessment of the recent shooting at Arapahoe High School in Colorado is spot on. If you want to know why the media all but completely dropped coverage of this event, here you go. The media doesn’t even try to hide their agenda anymore.

[The shooter] sounds like an episode of Piers Morgan.

    That was a fantastic post. Not the loss of life or injured students but Beck stating the facts. I couldn’t tweet it or Facebook it fast enough after watching it!

    I’d heard nothing on this, even off of Fox News; just that there was a shooting and the kid killed himself after 80 sec.

    Not a big fan of GB, but he’s spot-on again

      Well, I am a big fan! Glenn is a visionary type of person. Seems he has been spot on for the last
      Six years! Like Sara, he has been vilified by the left for as many years. The truth should matter.

    I’m not a Beck fan either, but I agree, this is awesome. I’m glad he touched on Shotgun Joe Biden as well.

    I don’t know if any of you are actually from Colorado but I am so let me point out a few facts. The media DID report that it was “ONLY” a shotgun that the shooter used. They DID point out that it was over in 80 seconds due to the fact that the shooter knew that the school resource officer was on his way to his location. The media has not “abandoned” the story or bury it. In fact there have been updates everyday since then on the investigation and the condition of the ONE student that was shot. Yes only one student was shot. It was originally reported that there were 2 victims but later established that one of the students was covered in the blood of the 1st victim and too traumatized to tell anyone otherwise. But Glenn Beck didn’t do enough research to report that correctly. Oh what, Glenn Beck, a reporter, therefore the MEDIA not telling the whole story? What a disgrace. The media never tried to hide that it was because of the school resource officer who YES had a gun that probably saved a whole lot of lives that day. In fact the media credited him with that very action. Every single high school in Colorado and many Middle schools have resource officers and guess what? THEY ALL CARRY GUNS!!! Anyone that has or has had any interaction with these schools knows this. While I watched in complete astonishment at the lies he was telling knowing that as a Colorado resident I have been watching this story daily so not sure how you cover up a story and yet still report on it. I became completely disgusted at two specific points. The first when he called the shooter a scumbag. Now don’t get me wrong. This boy deserves no sympathy. What he did was pure evil. But why did he commit this act? What demons was he dealing with that would drive him to such atrocities? And while we may never know or understand why this 18 year old boy that for his own incredibly selfish reasons not only permanently changed the life of every single person in that school that day, most especially the young girl who still lies in a coma and her family, can we at least remember that he was still a son and a brother, was part of a family that loved him and because of his decisions, choices and actions he has taken himself away from them and that is something they will NEVER get over. Also WHEN IN GODS NAME did it become ok to act and behave as a mentally challenged person, talking and mimicking someone who faces those challenges every single day? For what? To try and get a part of the story to sound even more ridiculous than it already did? Or maybe the real Glenn Beck showed through in those few seconds. He is right about that one thing and one thing only. The media in Colorado is no longer focusing their attention on the shooter. Not because they are trying to cover up who he was or what he did and why. But to give his family the privacy they deserve while they deal with what to them is a complete tragedy in losing their son and having to deal with what he did and to NOT give him (the shooter) any more notoriety then he has already received. Glenn Beck you make me completely sick. You are absolutely no better than the media you love to criticize. Maybe before going off on one of your rants you do some actual research and get the ENTIRE story and not just the part that makes you sound like you know what your talking about. Also come to Colorado and live in our shoes for a couple of days and see what it means to be part of a state that has seen these crisis’s more times then we want, have dealt with them, survived them, and grown from them. We are Colorado strong. I thank God your not from here. We don’t need, what was that word you used, oh ya Scumbags like you.

      Kellie, the national media largely dropped the story as soon as it didn’t fit their talking points (Beck’s comments about CNN). I’m glad your local news is covering the story, but censoring the fact that the kid was a socialist is crap (Beck’s comments about the Denver Post). Would they have done the same if the shooter was a tea part supporter?

      I think you might have misunderstood Beck’s mocking antics, though I agree it was a bit much. They way I interpreted it was Beck mocking the media saying that the shooter didn’t understand the socialist label, when the shooter’s Facebook comments about Keynesian economics proves that he did in fact understand the meaning.

      I also have no problem calling someone who shoots a defenseless, innocent girl in the head with a shotgun, a scumbag.

      Did some deer hunting last week and took it off from work. So I watched the morning news, lunchtime news and evening news. And yes heard about the shooting one or twice but when would they of had time to report it with the Mandela death, and the New CEO of chevy. That was 80% of the broadcast.

    • Ken Millard December 19, 2013 at 4:16 am #

      Kellie, you make some good points. Let’s not forget, the media does go for the easiest, most sensational stories that fit their mold. A man in the WSJ, recently, wrote on what mass killers most want- notoriety. I’m all for suppressing their ugly immortality, with not mentioning their names, ever. Glenn Beck has his own agenda, and it doesn’t often follow rational thinking of all the facts. As much as the shooter was a sensationalist, with words, Glen Beck is cut-from-the-same-cloth.

      Now THIS IS “Spot On”

    • TK December 19, 2013 at 9:12 am #

      Umm Kellie, you might want to re-watch, I think you completely missed Beck’s points. Again, not a Beck fan at all, but credit where credit is due.

    • Jon December 21, 2013 at 2:36 am #

      EXACTLY, you are FROM Colorado. I would sure hope that your media covers the story since it is local. Im pretty sure Glenn was talking about national news media. I work in Afghanistan and all I get is my yahoo homepage for news, the worst liberal media news BTW. I can tell you right now that I saw so much coverage on the Boston marathon, Sandy Hook, and the Movie theatre shooting that it nearly turned something tragic into an annoyance. I literally had to rifle through all 95 ‘front page’ stories to find anything on the arapahoe shooting AS IT WAS GOING ON. So Im pretty sure your view is adjusted due to you actually living there.

    Shooter kid was a socialist douche, I wonder who’s car that was that he was sitting in?
    The owner should drive that car to the ghetto and give it to the entire community haaa maybe not that would start another blood bath
    80seconds is a good number, to bad it isn’t lower or non existent but we have 20 school districts here in Ohio that are going to allow certain teachers and administrators to carry firearms in al of their schools

    I agree with Brandon! Well-written!

  7. Willy Rad December 19, 2013 at 5:38 pm #

    Brandon, Thanks for putting this out there. Agreed while some might have seen reports of this in CO news outside of CO and in the main media it has been DROPPED just like the mall shooting where a off duty security guard scared the killer into killing himself it’s all silent. Only good guys with guns stop bad guys with guns.

  8. Mark December 19, 2013 at 6:35 pm #

    Same reason the Oregon Mall shooting was quickly dismissed, armed good guy was present. Remember Christopher Dorner and his pro gun control manifesto? Imagine had he been a righty. Emergency meetings on the hill would have been called, he manifesto printed and passed around with a new gun control bill, but…he was forgotten within a week.

  9. Michael December 21, 2013 at 1:28 pm #

    Wow!! I’d have to say that I agree with….. most of that!! But it takes a lot of balls to say, “make the truth your agenda”, and don’t use “spin”, etc., etc., etc. GB isn’t exactly the poster boy of “TRUTH, and NO Spin”!! Haha

  10. Jack December 22, 2013 at 9:42 am #

    here’s the facts as I knew them… the media I watched, said very little about this murder\suicide. Being a pro-gun guy, I watch this stuff intently. Reading this now, blows me away. Reason being, I have not heard one national news outlet report there was a security officer WITH A GUN that stopped this cold. I would expect a national conversation on what worked to prevent this from being worse, how we could have prevented even the one tragic death that occurred to the female student… no wonder the media isn’t covering the fact that a hero armed guard was present…

    Just curious; why are some folks “not a big fan of” Glenn Beck? He speaks the truth and substantiates it and isn’t boisterous or obnoxious. What’s wrong with him?

      they usually disagree with people who believe in God-no matter what

    Most people that commit murder, especially mass murder, are emotionally distubed it it isn’t because they are Conservatives, Republicans, or Socialists (those terms are being fed to the public by the media, these people are seriously emotiionally disturbed. it’s unfortunate that we now need armed guards in our schools to protect our children and faculity but it is necessary in these times. I am a Socialist and I believe in armed guards in our schools. Most of my friends do not believe in zealot hatred, racial, religious, sexual and gender inequality.
