How the media treats parents of mass shooting victims

Killed twenty thousand americans last year more than any other year and at least two decades so this is a crisis that goes on and on and on there are a lot of people looking at solutions on the political front and in terms of changes in laws.

They're looking for that biography of hank. Aaron checked out in elementary school and never returned but the email was actually a lovely invitation to bring berry truth to town my hometown and record episode there. I kind of liked that idea as i chatted with the library. Folks i mentioned something that's often been on my mind in the many years since left florence for college and career. It was something that started as an observation. Actually a memory. That i really couldn't swear was true. In which became a theory that could improve on this special episode recorded before a live audience at the florence lottery. Dale public library. We're going to explore that something. Now let me begin by locating florence. Its way up in the top left hand corner of the state of alabama and sits along the tennessee river.

"The mass shootings in Atlanta, Georgia and Boulder, Colorado President Joe Biden has proposed a ban on assault weapons, high capacity magazines and an expansion of background checks for gun sales. It's an issue that Biden has been forced to deal with throughout his political career, most notably when he was vice president after the mass shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. 26 people, including 20 Children were killed. Even then, a proposed bill on gun control failed to get bipartisan support. Now Biden is once again calling for action as president.

"elementary school" Discussed on Red, Blue, and Brady
"Relationship between guns and suicides. And what happened was with that effort. Is that home too and Becky are bulldogs when when it comes to getting things done and they had meetings and invited the local mental health organizations, and we found out that as much as they do a good job. They were focusing on suicide in school, which is a really important issue, but we're missing missing that demographic of veterans and Rural men dead. Complete suicide at a far higher rate. And so as a result of that they got the Mental Health Community listen and kind of agree to work on their Grant process to get information into the hands not just of gun dealers, but also we have Flyers that are going into the the boxes are being put together for food banks and things like that. They've gone into our local politicians offices city council and put that brochure everywhere. So something that started as a group of women whose Hearts were broken because of another mass shooting was really kind of spread out but one thing we're trying to do now is work with other organizations within our community that are already doing some of this kind of work to work parallel with them to make a difference for gun buyers convention. There's so many different parts to this puzzle that when you you know, when you link it all together you like to think you're making a difference that when you see the numbers go up again kind of wonder what what time Do this. Well, I think in on the activism and what I what I think is so interesting about your group is that even before you're really a formal group, you know, even before your formula Cleveland remembers and you're doing all this work that you do now with so many survivors and in former teachers at the Cleveland school end up really fighting for gun violence prevention legislation, and I'm wondering maybe if you could talk a little bit about the local and federal assault weapons ban that you all help pass. Yeah, and it's because of the mass casualties are going to happen with an assault weapon or any military style weapon or or ammunition that allows something like this to happen. And so we had there was a teacher at our school who actually went and testified in Washington DC when there was conversation about having the way the federal assault weapons ban that Dianne Feinstein fostered through there. There was a local ban that still exists here in California, but it took a lot of a lot of work and a lot of hearings and I think it was a pretty cool. Was the vote was pretty close as far as passing the assault weapons ban the federal ban and then at sunset in 2004 and we haven't been able to get it back again in that we're working on it but the world on that assault weapons ban, I think the publicity that went with it brought a lot of attention to the issue and at the same time that it was supporting the need for this van the NRA was coming out to work against it as much as they could and they lost that time but since 2004 when the bill Sunset that they'd been able to make sure that another assault weapons ban hasn't been passed. And so we need to you need to work on that. It was it was interesting because then I don't think any of us before that had paid attention to things that happened in our lives being somehow connected to some kind of legislation because it was so long and so important for us. I think we learned then that you push hard enough and speak out loudly enough. Maybe it'll make a difference and and so we did learn that sometimes you need well-defined job. Has to identify an issue and try to make sure that what prompted it doesn't happen again because they will say the young for for listeners who who are unfamiliar with this the lady who did the shooting had had numerous arrests and what not and did not have very clear documentation, you know, he was found with a bunch of false papers and things like that, but he was able to walk into a store walk out with a with an assault weapon the same the same day in the same interaction. So there were a lot of things I highly recommend all Lincoln article that was done that sort of I think is a lot of good background what we talked about today, but that is a gun that she never been should have been sold to that. I agree. Yeah, and because there we didn't have well he did. I think he had to wait what fifteen days for one of his whole life guns or something like that? Yes, but not for what he used in the how to use what he used and you know, we still I know Nevada passed a bill but then dead You know, you go to Arizona or other nearby States and and go to Adventureland purchase any of these and then there's the issue of of Ghost dents and things like that and that that's for another discussion to be one of the things I find really interesting hearing your story at the school and then also your experience as an activist in a time when we still see school shootings is in recent years. So many of these shootings in that becoming like a one-word sort of signifier of the need to do something so Parkland Columbine then cook and I'm wondering if you could talk a little bit about why I'm Evelyn or you know Stockton and its Legacy have been somewhat left out of that conversation and has in many ways been forgotten despite the fact that there were young children who were shot and killed after school, I think because it was the first major shooting of modern times. I mean the first incident of of a school This way back in the 17000 s and they have happened we run the news for a while because because of the mashed cat Mass casualties and then it was a a few years until another shooting happened and it's like those are clumped together. I'm not really sure why Cleveland is kind of Forgotten except is it that we only lost five children? Is there a dog in front of that? And when you think about you can't put an an only with a number because these are these are our children. They were their parents children. They were a part of our community so long, you know every single one of them should still be remembered and it's it's something we think about every time that there is a list but it doesn't it doesn't really come up and I don't know why that's the case wage. But if you talk to us or if you talked to anybody else we've found that for example on our Facebook page as the post have been updated. We've had people comment on some of the poems. Because everybody who was here at that time remembers where they were and how they were impacted and it's something like this touches people for the rest of their lives. I don't know. We thought we wish that our kids were still part of the story, but they're definitely part of that long awful line of the mass shootings us. So I guess my point in telling you that is every time a child is filled at home school that that should be a part of the story and because we know that stories motivate people they move people to act I saw the look on Senator Joe manchin his face when summer Sandy Hook parents who walking in and talking to him about what had happened and wanted him to support a background check bill, you know, so people are really moved by that and our own Congressman when we were part of what the Brady meetings in Washington DC when we had a a Lobby day and we went into Congressman mcmurray's office and Judy put forward on his table with the pictures of our students. And he he had known what had happened. But he was We were supposed to get fifteen minutes of his time and he ended up talking to us for probably an hour, you know, so so it's I don't want to say that they need to use these children, but I think we do, you know, if they were killed in an incident like this then.
"elementary school" Discussed on Red, Blue, and Brady
"Everybody. Welcome back to red blue and Brady as always. I am your host JJ and of course, I'm joined by my co-host The Fabulous Kelly Samsung now today, we're talking about something really heartbreaking before there was Parkland or even Columbine there was the Cleveland Elementary School, but for many the name of the Stockton, California song Is is unfamiliar on January seventeenth? Nineteen eighty-nine a former student opened fire on the playground of Cleveland Elementary School within just 3 minutes, the gunman fired a hundred and six rounds from his recently purchased a 47 killing five students and injuring another thirty one. The youngest student victim was six the oldest Hein one teacher was also injured while trying to get students to safety mode while it was not the first school shooting in America. It was sadly one of the first to be featured during the twenty-four hour news cycle bringing the tragedy at Stockton into the living rooms of millions of horrified Americans both of those who died and and most of those wounded were Cambodian and Vietnamese immigrants who had arrived in the US as Asylum Seekers or refugees following the murders many wondered how a man with multiple legal effects says for things like selling weapons attempted robbery and drug possession could purchase an AK-47 and if his crimes were racially motivated outcry and activism after the shooting also home. Leads the passing of assault weapons laws state and federal level today Kelly and I are joined by Julie short a founding member of Cleveland remembers and Brady California chapter member and a former teachers Cleveland Elementary School. Julie was there that day and shares with us her memories of what happened the students that were lost and what drives her to still be engaged in gun violence prevention work to this day off Julie on behalf of Kelly and I want to welcome you. Do you want to go ahead and introduce yourself to our audience? Yes. I am Julie short. I live in Stockton California in the Central Valley and not I am a member of Cleveland School remembers Brady, which is a local Grassroots gun violence prevention organization. And thank you so much truly for for coming on. I think the first question we have to ask is often the hardest question that we have to ask folks who come on particularly when we're talking to survivors is you know, can you detail what I'm sure was one of the hardest days of your life. Can you tell us what happened that day? At Stockton Elementary School, what what happened that January 17th as a member of a close-knit group now because all the other members of Creedence do with members have become my my best friends my closest friends here and although we experience the same thing. We experienced it differently all of us. And so I I certainly respect that the shooting incident happened at Cleveland medicine here in Stockton on January 17th, as you said thirty-two years ago in nineteen eighty-nine and it was a cold crisp clear day and it was on a Tuesday. So we had just had a three-day weekend and it was during the lunch Recess Recess at the time. I was teaching second grade is my third year teaching and so my students were off recess all the first and third graders with their lunch recess the kindergarten children were up in the cafeteria eating and it started for me when I heard what I thought were firecrackers, which is kind of an odd. In January, but that loud sort of piercing but instantaneous sound you just associate with what you know, my classroom had one door to the outside and the other door faced off in it wasn't exactly a pod but we all kind of faced into a room. Where are reading specialist had her her table and I was right next to the kindergarten area and we shared a table near a telephone that was on the wall and my friends who Rosman who was teaching kindergarten at the time came around the corner and I was in the classroom with one of my students who is my monitor to stay in because she had a cold so I kept her inside with me and then sue Rosman came up and then she she ducked down behind the table. That was near the telephone just outside my classroom. Thought she said, oh my God, they're killing our kids and she had realized that what she had heard was gunfire because some of the gunshots were coming through the walls into her kindergarten classroom. So all the children from birth To build a riser on the playground or or at lunch and it was and it was then that I realized that something really different and anomalous had happened and it kind of and I think shock and transfer me to a different place because what I did was I grabbed the hand of my student Chandra who is 8 years old at the time and I just kind of stood there and I headed toward the door for the outside because I thought if she was going to come into the classroom into our building and then I thought wait I can't believe my other kids and I'm not sure exactly what the thought process was. But I took her over to the outside door and then holding her hand. I came back to the entryway into the pot and they went back to the door again. It was like I couldn't decide what to do now and you had an aide to write it wasn't just just you in the classroom to back up a little bit. My my bilingual aide savour killed had moved here as a refugee from Cambodia and when she skate Cambodia, she had to escape going through the Killing Fields trying to get to the refugee camps in Thailand dead. And she and her family had to travel through the jungle and she had a six month old baby at the time. She was traveling with her her family and she had to stay about a mile behind the rest of them because she had a baby and if the baby cried he could have brought the attention of the Khmer Rouge to them would have killed all them so she been through some horrible trauma already and she came back into the classroom just before the accident started coming coming back in and are you familiar with those little coat closets they have in classrooms where teachers can hang a person a coat? Yeah and things like that, you know, it's maybe five feet tall and about one foot square and she got into that closet and she pulled the door closed in front of her and I can remember seeing her her beautiful fingers in her fingernails holding the door closed because I thought she knew what it was even before I did. She knew what the sound of shooting was like, but then after the students came in, you know, she was you know, she was helping the students to get seated and so since the playground was bright outside dog. Your classrooms in the students and start coming back in after the shooting had ended or a student started coming into the building and it was absolutely silent after however long it took less than five minutes of the gunshots. It was absolutely silent and I didn't know until later what had happened but my my children started filing quietly into the classroom, which they need to do and went back into the the normal practice we had which was to sit down on the rug in front of my chair because I would always read to them when they came in but this is this is really a different circumstance Adrian Eglin who's a really good friend of mine stadiums a kindergarten teacher at the time and she actually was close to the door to the outside of the playground and she asked she had to do some triage with some students to decide, you know, can we move this student inside? So the students stay here. Can we help the student at all? And she did that because she slipped into that role having been in the Army for two years as an officer wage. Is part of her training and then my when my students came in and sat down I had an idea of what happened because one of my students from everybody come in and one of my students said came in and said Ur phone is dead and who knows one of my students and and I distinctly remember saying oh you don't know that and I don't I don't know what I was thinking about what happened. I couldn't even imagine it like all I can think about where the children in front of me. And then I sat there and read to the students and I I was reading.

"Are not equipped properly are close teacher-student ratio is not appropriate. We don't have enough space to do this in the way that it's being shown to be relatively safe and effective. So here's hoping that decisions are made that protect our children, even if it is driving us a little bit crazy. Yeah, so to make this more possible and then maybe make us all less likely to call our politicians and beg for the schools to get reopened. We're going to talk today a little bit about a few things. We're going to give some historical perspective about how education was handled before we had schools and it's going to make you feel a little bit better about what you've been struggling with with doing this. Yeah. Rachel's also going to talk a bit about Some child psychology and cognitive development and why you're experiencing what you're experiencing with your kids right now. We're also going to talk a little bit off about what you can specifically do. We're going to give you some some specific hands on tips to make your life better your kids life better and make it so they maybe actually learn something during this time. I am also going to tell you know what it's okay. If they don't the the simple fact is human beings are super adaptable and while certain development milestones are important. There's a lot of flexibility in that time chart and it's not going to be the end of the world. If for the next three months what your kid mostly learns is how to manage their emotions in a crisis. In fact that is actually a a huge life skill and one that often gets undermined by our hyper focus on academics ultimately there are lots and lots of ways to teach your child to read at lots of birth. Of ways to support their critical thinking up to and including helping them put a name to their emotions and their frustrations and managing their own boredom because one of the things that we're all figuring out of the younger the child the more difficult this task is is how to get them to do something for long enough that you can get a job done. Even if that's not their homework. So I definitely think that's important. So what I want to start with is just giving a little bit of background. This is where I bring in some of this so I am not a historian. I don't play one on T either but I am a nerd and I love learning about history and listening to history podcasts as a hobby. One of my very favorite ones wage is called the tides of History posted by a guy named Patrick women who is a I would say professional historian. I mean, he's got a PhD in history. His big focus is Latrobe history and what he calls the early modern world, but obviously one of the big things that happens in that time is of course a change in education because if you know anything about history, you.

"Well developing tonight. A mother outraged over this video. It shows her seven-year-old son handcuffed by police at his elementary school. The the mom says her son is autistic and had an outburst during class eyewitness news. An officer doesn't know he's autistic. How are they going to handle the situations. I don't want all my son to be the next one to get shot because he's not complying high witness news reporter. Roxy Bustamante just talked to the mother and she joins US live tonight. Roxy See Deborah Matia Hannah wants to see the school policy change after seeing her son in metal handcuffs and hold away from his school while his father was here ready to take him home video hard to hear you can actually your her seven year old son crying and begging to go home. She says it was on Monday when her son had a breakdown on in class and the teacher called for the crisis officers to respond. She says the school tried calling the child's father but mis dialed twice when they finally got a hold of him. He rushed here too Hirsch Elementary School. That's when he saw his son in handcuffs says officers refused to release him essay. Isd Police took him to a behavioral hospital where he he was later released to his father. Now tells me this all could have been prevented. She says it's time for the school district to change how they handle situations like this especially when they're made aware of the child's developmental disorder my hope is that they treat children with disabilities. He's at least with compassion in kind of understanding the situation that they're in for me. The handcuffs is a big. No that should never have kid kid even as an adult the moment you get handcuff. I'm pretty sure you get scarce resources out there now spokesperson with San Antonio. Isd He tells us there are times when children are in crisis and need to be transported to receive medical attention. handcuffing may be part of the process if it's determined that it is it's necessary to keep the child safe. This is not a disciplinary measure. It is a process to ensure students in crisis receive medical care now. The mother does coming up the staff here at the school assured her that there will be a specialist following her son around when he returns to school tomorrow and throughout the week hoping that they can see as something that they can improve deborah okay roxy. That video is just heartbe rich. You'll hear me say this all the time but it has to be said over over and over again the United States is the incarceration nation no country in the world even more than that no country in the history of the world incarcerates more people of greater percentage of its people more more children than the United States of America does right here right now and mass incarceration has invaded every aspect of society. We learned this past week. Is that a charter school in in Orlando. Florida had two different children. some people are saying it was two six year old girls. Some people are saying it was a boy and a girl roll. What we now know is that two six year old children were arrested on two completely different behavioral incidents. They weren't even connected each student. They said had a Tantrum which is not a crime. The kids are six years old and when I went home last night and spoke to my family about this they reminded me and in some ways had had not crossed my mind that our youngest longest daughter is six years old and our youngest daughter Zahra. Yes Oh baby. She can hardly read and write. She watches cartoons and still does not have a full grasp of reality. This notion ocean that six year old children could ever be charged with any crime is outrageous but charging urging a child a six year old child with a crime for what let's be real about it for what is really an age appropriate. Britt behavior six year old children have tantrums. They do act out the best behaved. Children aren't at six years old have moments where they lose control. Their brains have barely developed. They are in a rapid pitt growth stage where it is difficult. Now we as adults look at the lives of children who are six or ten or sixteen eighteen and we think it's easy because they normally don't have bills in the responsibilities that we have but if you remember everything about being that age age wasn't easy easy is relative and they are just in this rapid stage of development and this morning. I was on the Tom Join a morning. Show which is a nationally syndicated morning show that I do every Tuesday and Thursday and you know we called the school out. We called owed the county public school system out of course we call the police officer out but let me be real and I. I don't get a chance to say this very often. The Orlando Police Department. I suspended the officer immediately saying that he violated multiple policies that he did not have any permission to to arrest a six year old child that the county wide policy the citywide policy there in Orlando is that you have to get any special permission. If if you make any arrest of any child under the age of twelve he got no such permission and arrested two children that were six years old. They suspended him and within a few days. They fired him now. This officer was a school resource officer. He was no longer a full-time time Orlando Police Department officer it appears that he may have even been a retired officer from the Orlando Police Department and that's what a lot of these school. Resource officers are either way they fired him and made it clear that he violated policy. My beef goes back to the school. My beef goes back to the county for allowing something like that to happen. Now I spoke this morning with officials from the Orlando Orlando Public School system and they were frustrated that we called them out in that we asked volunteers on the breakdown and on the Tom Joyner morning show to call them because they basically wanted to communicate to me that they have no say in this school that they have no pool at Lucius and Emma Nixon Academy now it is a charter school and let me break down and explain to you what I really came to learn today day now in Florida and in Texas and in many other states charter schools are highly independent. They set their own boards. Yes they set some of their own policies but they still receive funding from the county and have some level of supervision from the county but in those states where they have conservative governors and conservative legislatures they want those conservative governments want those schools to be the as independent as humanly possible and the county officials I spoke with. I spoke with a communications officer. I spoke with one of the chiefs of Staff. They wanted to communicate to me that hey we don't have immediate jurisdiction over that school unless assume for illustration sake that that's the case. You still have influence over that school. You still have sway over the school. You can still make a public statement which as as of today now several days after the arrest the county still has not made even a simple public statement about what's going on in a school that is is still managed by the county still funded by the county right now if you go to the website for the Orange County public schools there in Orlando the Emma and Lucius and Emma Nixon Academy Charter school listed right there on their website as one of their charter schools now I accept and understand that charter school management management sticky and complicated. That's why a lot of us have an increasing beef with charter schools particularly this Charter school which is incredibly low. Oh performing and now we know has had two of its children and parents are suggesting that this is not the first time a child has been arrested at the school. I have not yet confirmed affirmed that but what I'm hearing is that school resource officers are arresting children all over Orlando now. Maybe they're not always six years old but that other elementary school children have been arrested this school year already in schools only been in session for about the month that other elementary school children have been arrested across Orlando in middle schools and elementary schools and high schools and what I now see is that this problem happening all over the country that audio clip that we played to begin. This episode took place in San San Antonio just this past Monday and again. We have a seven year old child who is autistic who has autism and needs special care if you could see the video. I'm looking at it right now. My blood is boiling because they have a seven year old boy handcuffed with his hands behind his back who is crying distraught uncontrollably hurt art by the fact that he's being treated like a criminal and here's the thing his father actually came to the school to who to intervene and what we understand is that again the these children that are most often arrested are our own most always black. Latino over and over and over again and that was the case here in San Antonio was the case in Orlando. What we we see is that there is one standard of treatment for white children and one standard of treatment for everybody body else and I have to say this if your school is not.

Like it's early out on Tuesdays. We get into school the same time as we get out at twelve fifty to five am since I I pencil up to walk my Glenn picks up and when my mom Dr Work she comes home. We eat dinner than a grandma and GRANDPA hangs out about sevenish. Go on telling you if I was Tuesday's would be my favorite day. That's for darn sure I'll have extra time to do my homework with them. It's true because sometimes sometimes by the time you get home from school and have your snack and do all that and then you do your homework and dinner. The day's gone right days. Go fast like usually I have to go to my dad's office but a on Tuesdays all have to do just go home. Do a quick snack route ten minutes and then do my homework an imaging like every two assignments get like a five minute blake. How love that I love what I want to do with my work like today. Since it's Wednesday today's trash day in usually I usually do on my bike's like take out the trash cans. Get The mail deb. Things whereabouts are talking about that. Let me ask you this question. I though so you're in fifth grade. You've been an elementary school now for several years. I wonder if there's anything that you find tricky or challenging. Maybe even a little bit difficult either in school right now or maybe just an your age period anything hard for you right now in school polymath properly math because just really hard factions. Are you adding different factions like one fourth plus. We ate to something it. It's hard yes I right. I don't like numbers. Yes okay you have to estimate five six AIDS but you'd be not a whole old ember will but in to say like what I'm with you on this. How is it going in school right now with like friends like kids are treating each other right now pretty good yeah good. All my friends are treating me God. I think everybody's treating each other good. I'm glad to hear that I'm glad that that's your experience too. I wonder what you would. What do you think parents parents should know about what it's like to be a kid today like if you just remember right now you've got a lot of parents listening to you so if you could tell them something. I'm like this is something I kind of wish. You knew our wish you understood or it'd be helpful if I if parents could keep this in mind as we sort of raise in parent you guys well to Kate. If all you guys parents will be a kid all the kids now kind of smaller because of the internet or it helps him get more smarter because yeah and also kids are more helpful by cleaning up the planet because the young and they get engaged with it earlier it come habit. You know what you're you're making a great point and that's the that's the place I want to turn into right now because you are a pretty awesome kid and you're doing some pretty extraordinary things so you're doing something that you say is not exactly a sport to other kids but it is to you because you have your own recycling business. which is the coolest thing I've ever heard? Let's talk at the list about the beginning of this. How did you even get started into recycling while my dad told me to locally Cycling Center for the coastline with a couple of white bag and if you have hood Lee plane at close down all California and we planet so Cycling Center and that's where I would take all McCann's do that was the second saw and since they closed now go into cycling San in in California and so like when we plan still open we'll be taking our bags still in there was like two small white kitchen bags and and they gave me about five bucks in just loved it and I wanted to keep doing it and doing it and the next day like I couldn't say business snus than choice said business MMG Homey talk my mom like. Will you complaining this. He's not all my mom's like no. I thought you him did this. I know so it was all me. It was all you the you're just meant to do this. This was just going to be your path. So I'm curious. Use why you love recycling so much like why has this captured your loyalty in your imagination and your enthusiasm well. I dislike point because I really think it through really fun. Some kids may not think it's some kids may think it's boring but to me. I think it's fun. I don't like sports. What's okay. Kids may like sports like I like cycling but kids may not like cycling GOP sentenced Fisher Line. It varies very easier easy. Okay anybody out there. I started when I do and a half down. Ten of tenure kid like me to do it anybody could do. It's Sulawesi.
