    Oh... ok. lol

    It was kind of funny, you asking "What is it in the water in Colorado? It must be the mix of guns and democraps."

    And then we hear the fucker is a Libtard Marxist who wants gun control.

    WTF is wrong with these people?

    You'd think they wouldn't USE a gun if they were so AGAINST GUNS!

    They're out of their freakin minds. No question about the "Mental Disorder" label hanging over the heads of all lefties. There are plenty of leftist weirdos in my place of employment and they are all batshit crazy. Every last one of them. Not an ounce of common sense graces these idiots. The fact that one of these deceived units can attempt to right the wrongs of life (as he saw them) by employing the use of a methodology he purportedly despises proves my thesis.

    As I was reviewing articles, a peripheral thought came to me. The prominent picture of these articles shows the perp in a convertible vehicle. Looking at the fit and finish of the car, as well as its layout... it appears to be a very expensive sports car or even an exotic. I can't place it utilizing my onboard database of automotive knowledge. This really doesn't mean too much except that the kid may have been sired by a family of some wealth, assuming the car was owned by his family.

    Karl Halverson Pierson, 18, injured two students at Arapahoe High School, turned gun on self

    Denver school shooting 1:39

    Sorry, this video is not currently available.




    A TEENAGER who may have had a grudge against a teacher opened fire with a shotgun at a Colorado high school, wounding two students before killing himself.

    Quick-thinking students alerted the targeted teacher, who quickly left the building.


    The scene unfolded on the eve of the Newtown massacre anniversary, a sombre reminder of the ever-present potential for violence in American schools.


    Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson identified the shooter on Friday night as 18-year-old Karl Halverson Pierson.


    The shooter entered Arapahoe High School armed with a shotgun and looking for a teacher he identified by name, Sheriff Robinson said.


    "(The teacher) knew he was the target and he left that school in an effort to try to encourage the shooter to also leave the school," the sheriff said. "That was a very wise tactical decision."





    High achiever... Karl Halverson Pierson reportedly asked for a teacher by name when he turned up at school armed with a gun. Picture: Facebook




    One of the wounded students, a girl, was taken to hospital in serious condition. The other student suffered minor gunshot-related injuries.


    Two suspected Molotov cocktails were found inside the school, the sheriff said. One detonated but no one was injured.


    Within 20 minutes of the report of a gunman, officers found the suspect's body inside the school, Sheriff Robinson said.


    Students were seen walking toward the school's running track with their hands in the air, and television footage showed students being patted down.


    Authorities concluded that Pierson had acted alone.

    Nearby neighbourhoods were jammed with cars as parents sought their children.


    Several Denver-area school districts went into lockdown as reports of the shooting spread. Police as far away as Fort Collins, about a two-hour drive north, stepped up school security.


    The practice of sending law enforcement directly to an active shooting incident was developed in response to another Colorado school shooting that shook the nation: in 1999, two teenage shooters killed 12 classmates and a teacher at Columbine High School before killing themselves.


    Arapahoe High School is 13 kilometres from Columbine.


    More recently, a shooter killed 12 people at a movie theatre in Aurora, another Denver suburb, in 2012.


    A slate of gun control measures, including ammunition magazine limits and expanded background checks, were this year approved by Colorado lawmakers.


    Two state lawmakers were ousted in recall elections after voting for the measures, and a third resigned to avoid a recall. The backlash was a reflection of the divide in a state known for its hunting and where gun ownership is a treasured right.


    "He had very strong beliefs about gun laws and stuff," junior Abbey Skoda, who was in a class with the alleged shooter in her freshman year, told The Denver Post .
    "I also heard he was bullied a lot."

    Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson told reporters Pierson entered Arapahoe High School looking for a specific teacher by name.


    Police are investigating reports he was after the teacher to settle a score after a confrontation.


    "The student identified a specific teacher at the high school that he was interested in confronting, and that teacher was informed of the situation and exited the school quickly," he said.

    Pierson has been described as a dedicated and bright student from a religious family who attends Bible study meetings, leaving those that knew him shocked.


    "They're just a normal middle-class family, like many of the families around here," neighbour Diane Shea said.


    Thomas Conrad, who had an economics class with the gunman, described him as a very opinionated Socialist.


    "He was exuberant I guess," Conrad told The Denver Post.

    "A lot of people picked on him, but it didn't seem to bother him."


    Carl Schmidt and Brendon Mendelson, both seniors at Arapahoe High, said he had political views that were "outside the mainstream".


    Schmidt said the shooter "was an outspoken kid about what he believed and a good political thinker." (AP:here's a problem, this is a teacher's opinion - "good political thinker")


    Mendelson added: "He did have a lot of friends. He was popular with the people he knew."





    Shocked students... Two girls comfort each other following the incident at the school. Picture: Ed Andrieski/AP Source: AP



    Denver Post reporter Ryan Parker‏ tweeted the shooting happened in the cafeteria.


    "Students are telling me at least two students were shot by another student in the cafeteria," Mr Parker said.


    The school is home to more than 2000 students. Parents arrived at the scene frantically looking for word on the fate of their children.

    Was trying to ID it from the steering wheel logo, but no go for me.

    Wish these punks would cut to the chase and turn the gun on themselves first before f-king up everyone elses lives. I mean, if they know that's the end game, just get to it.

    I'm going to go with Ferrari. If you zoom in on the steering wheel, you can see the jumping horse on yellow shield.

    Is the kid driving it, or just posing in it though? That's the question.

    And thanks Ryan. I'm not a car aficionado by ANY means, so unless it is something I've seen before, familiar with or more likely, driven one myself - then I won't have a clue.

    I doubt driving it. Can't imagine someone would be dumb enough to let that twit on the road with their car.

    I did get a chuckle when I saw it given his claims of being a Socialist. Then again, I guess that makes him a good one since it is always, "Socialism for the other guy but not for me."

    That's not a Ferrari steering wheel or horse. The horse should be yellow.

    Yeah, not a horse, not yellow. I just looked them up. Not close.

    Looks like a U or an upside down U. The wheel isn't straight

    Might be a Porsche, given the circular center of steering wheel and shape of seats.

    No back seat, though. Thought it might be a Nissan Z convertible.

    At this point, for what it's worth, my money is on a Lotus convertible. Just haven't nailed down the model yet.

    I think we have a winner!



    That would be the steering wheel of a Lotus.


    I was close though. Yellow background, black horse.

    I don't see any yellow, but looking at the center hub, the lack of other controls, the way the bottom spoke has grip go up either side...yup, that's the wheel.
