And they have ready access to guns. Well, but knives kill people. Yeah. And they don't kill fourteen in a matter of moments the same way, do they? It's different. You don't make it easy to commit mass murder. Let's make it harder to commit mass murder in this country. Let's make it. So parents don't have to as I every time. I take my kids to school. I checked the perimeter of the school again, I was at a Valentine's Day dance with my kids in my wife the other day at their elementary school the other night, and what am I doing the whole time looking around keeping my eyes open are there people who are acting weird suspiciously? Am I keeping him? I I'm watching the entrance and exit all of them. I'm not able to sit there and just enjoy the dance. Why? Because school shootings are commonplace. Now. Is that how we want to raise our kids? Hey, guys, you don't have tornado drill. So I grew up a tornado drills. Hey, guys, you just have an earthquake drill. You got an active shooter drill any day at any time. Somebody could come into your school with a firearm and start shooting and killing people. Let's prepare for that. That's insane. And I am not making any type of a judgment about mental health, etc. I'm saying to live that way is not sane. Yet. We continue down this path Republicans used to have some concept of this idea that, hey, maybe we ought not to do this even Justice Scalia for you right wingers is the one who wrote section three in the DC versus Heller decision. That says. Yeah, of course, you can control and limit firearm ownership there's a long history, he judges everything back into the eighteenth century eighteenth century there, you could limit firearms. There were things against concealed weapons cetera. He says as much so what the hell are we waiting for? Are you? I mean, apparently, you're so removed from putting kids in body bags. Go do that sometime participate in a funeral service for a child who died because somebody was able to get their hands on a firearm Amiga really easy to kill them. Go participate in that people. Who are always have really what I consider to be odd ideas about homelessness, etc. Google on tier at a shelter. Go hand out food. Go work at a food Bank. Go work with homeless people. You'll have a different perspective on it very quickly. Then you're harsh judgment from a distance because you've never had to participate. Go walk around the school, go work with professionally. I know a guy who's in charge of security for a school district. Then the way he has to think now about entrances, and exits now, you control entry you prevent people from getting and you can't stop everything. But you stop as many as you can. And you make it as hard as possible for those who want to commit harm on this kind of a mass scale. It's awful. I can't believe that we as a society, and we have a group of people in Washington DC can't get their arms around the idea that hey, twelve hundred and fifty kids in one year dead not because of suicide, but the end of the barrel of a firearm, and it's wrong.

"On a Thursday. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve Inskeep. In Washington DC. And I'm David Greene in Broward County, Florida. We are just a few miles away from Marjory stoneman Douglas high school where one year ago today Valentine's Day, a mass shooting took the lives of seventeen people. Jessica Bateman is one of the journalist who has covered the tragedy and its aftermath. She covers education from member station. W L R N in south Florida. And she is with me now. Hi there. Jessica, hi, David talk me through how this community is marking one year today said today, the high school Marjory stoneman Douglas is having what they're calling a day of service and love. So that's an opportunity for students to come in for a half day of community service activities at ten seventeen. AM? They're going to do a moment of silence to honor the victims, obviously seventeen is the number of. And then there are also going to be some community groups having activities throughout the day. For example, there's a nonprofit called shine MST that was founded by some of the students who wrote a song called shine. They sang it at the C N N townhall one week after the shooting on national TV. And so they're going to have a art therapists at the park that's near the school students can go and do some drumming and do some painting. I know some students are doing a poetry reading so lots of activities for people if they want to to come together and try to heal together. But a lot of a lot of students are being kept homes to just spend time with their families. It sounds like yes, the students are allowed to just not go to school today and tomorrow, they're encouraged if you don't want to participate in some kind of community service activity than stay home with your family, can I just ask you, it seems like even a year on there is still so much anger here. A lot of it being directed at the school superintendent in Broward County, Robert Runcie. I mean, Florida's new governor came out yesterday said he wants a grand. Jury to investigate how school safety is handled throughout the state. But especially here in Broward County what while the anger. Yeah. So the parents of the victims, especially in also parents students who still go to Marjory stoneman Douglas are really angry that some of the school safety measures. They see as critical are not in place yet or were in place before the shooting that could have potentially prevented some of the deaths that happen. So specifically there is a commission called the Marjory stoneman Douglas high school public safety. Commissioner was created by the legislature to investigate the shooting and some of their recommendations are specifically looking at what would have prevented what happened last year? So for example, they want the police officers and Broward to have access to cameras because there was an issue with delayed surveillance footage. They want a code red policy. So that it's clear what happens if there's an active shooter situation, and they also want what we what are called hard corners. So those are spaces in classrooms where students can hide away from threat where they wouldn't be able to be seen or shot. Got through a classroom window or door? Which is something that happened on February fourteenth last year. All right WLAN's, Jessica Bateman, thanks so much. Thanks, david. And I had a chance to sit down with the superintendent Robert Runcie in Broward County in his office yesterday. And as Jessica just was telling us about this hard corners in classrooms to protect people. I asked the superintendent if they have now a year on been marked off in every classroom in the county not in every school in the county. Our goal is to try to get this done by the NFL brewery in may go little longer than that because we're trying to work with law enforcement agencies, and there some apprehension on some of them to be engaged in a process of designating that because of maybe liability concerns, so let me see the chance that way. Why is that not going it seems I think to some people like you're just putting tape down in all? Here's what the concern is the corners are not so straightforward. So for example, if I have a classroom that has two doors, where's the corner is it over here? If you come through that door, or is it over there the threat comes through the other door? So this is not something that you wanna simplify it's an important and thoughtful thing that needs to be done in each and every classroom because not every single classroom in his county or in any district anywhere is exactly the same. Can I ask you about something that's been very personal? There have been some of the families of victims who have felt like you didn't reach out to them in ways they had hoped for. We were actually sitting down this week with the brother of Elena petty who was killed. He said that families have been disappointed that you haven't visited with them families of victims. I mean, he said to us he hasn't come speaking about you come to visit with. His family that am I are we missing something. I mean, or is that a decision that you know that? And also, I have visited families. I have not been able to visit with all the families there some that at that time were not at a place that you could they wanted to talk to anyone, and then you know, that grew into anger and so on I've continued to try to reach out that is this miscommunication. When you have a family that doesn't doesn't reach shelters. I have I have reached out and tried to connect with families that in some cases, they don't wanna talk to us. But I can't make somebody meet with me. How hard has it been on you personally to to have days like this? I mean where there has been so much loss in this community. And then I just think about you. Having just watched the governor, basically undermine you and say that that this district needs to be investigated with potential subpoenas for how it is handled a tragedy. Well, I I didn't hear him say exactly that. But he's been asked to suspend you, easy said that before I I understand that. Right. But I can't focus on that. And I honestly don't I need to have a laser focus every single day on how we're going to get better and better at improving safety, insecurity and Broward County public schools, and we're moving as fast as we can. And we need to do things the right way, not just quickly. Let me just finish with with a personal question. I've read about you and your own experience with with gun violence and your mother having to live through her being shot when you were a kid, can can you tell us about that. Yeah. So I was eight years old and standing next to my mother on a Saturday on our porch and gentlemen, started shooting at us and shot in my mother in the face and. Riddick hate crime. You know, she she survived it. But one of the things I reflected on almost immediately. Abondoned tragedy of parkland is that I never had any counseling services. We were just left on our own as a family. Just you guys. Go forgot to deal with it. And I wanted to ensure that these families in this community would never have to go through anything like that. You know, we we we continue to provide as much support as we can. Because I you know, I have some. Sense of how difficult this is for them. And you know, I've tried to bring that experience to help our community. And no there their families that are angry, and I've tried to balance with giving them space and offering support as much as I possibly can. And then to all the families that don't feel that I've reached them or done enough. I offer my sincere apologies. And. We'll continue to do everything. I can to support them superintendent fancy. Thank you for your time. All right. And on this anniversary of the parkland shooting. David is reporting from south Florida throughout today's program. Some other news now Paul Manafort may spend the rest of his life in prison. His plea deal is off after a judge ruled that President Trump's former campaign chairman intentionally lied to investigators he'd been asked for information about Russia's participation in the US election. NPR justice. Correspondent Carrie Johnson. Is here's Carrie good morning. Good morning. What we're manafort's lies about three things. But the most interesting for our purposes Steve aren't lies are alleged lies about his interactions with a business associate that the FBI has linked to Russian intelligence. This man Constantine, Clem neck and Paul Manafort had conversations before the two thousand sixteen election throughout the campaign after the election having meetings and conversations up until twenty eighteen after Manafort had already been charged with financial crimes. The authorities say Manafort lied about his discussions with clinic. Regarding a peace plan for crane, which was a major foreign policy goal in Russia and also about the sharing of some kind of polling data with Kalinic during the campaign. Oh, so if these were lies that means Manafort really did meet this person and pass on polling information. And it sounds like Robert Mueller. The head of the special counsel investigation has the has the evidence to prove it Muller has the evidence to prove it. He hasn't shown his hand to members of the public yet. So we don't know what exactly this polling did it is or how it was used or Steve importantly, whether anybody else involved in term campaign knew about this at the time or after. But I says, I think you have noted Muller does have testimony from a business associate of Paul Manafort. That's right in part. Prosecutors were able to meet their burden of proof that Manafort lied by contrast in his testimony with that of Richard gates. Rick gates was manafort's a right hand man for years. Rick gates has been cooperating fully with authorities. He has not yet been sentenced. Has cooperation has been so helpful Steve that he's basically able to travel and live his life while for months and months now Paul Manafort has been locked in solitary confinement in a detention center. And I guess that may not change very much. So so so Manafort makes these false statements. He says, I if I made any false statements. I didn't mean to the judge has now I agree with the prosecutors. You intentionally lied. What does that mean for his sentencing coming up in a few weeks? Yeah. Is going to be sentenced March thirteenth has lawyers have said Manafort is ill with severe gout and depression and anxiety. He didn't mean to lie. The judge is going to take all of that into account when she figures out a punishment for this sixty nine year old man we began by saying he might spend the rest of his life in prison. Does it seem that the range of possible sentences would would put him in prison? Rescuers life. Well, certainly he has a number of years on the table in DC. Remember Stevie also was convicted by a jury of separate crimes in Virginia..
