Students at Taft High School in Kern County, Calif., issued frightened tweets last month about a student — Bryan Oliver — whose name has been circulating on Twitter in connection with the shooting of another student and a teacher today.
The disturbing tweets are dated Dec. 15.
Flash forward to today:
One of the students who expressed her concerns about Bryan Oliver in December later said she regretted doing so:
Should the administration have taken these students’ concerns more seriously?
The “national conversation” on gun violence has reached the White House this week, but as the administration and gun rights groups noisily grapple over the Second Amendment, time bombs quietly tick inside our schools. Is anyone listening?
Update, January 11th, 6:23 a.m. ET:
KGET is reporting that Bryan Oliver is the name of the suspected shooter.
USA Today is reporting that Bowe Cleveland was the student who was shot.
These reports are consistent with what Twitchy reported early yesterday afternoon.
