In the immediate aftermath of the Oregon school shooting, Chelsea Cooper turned to social media to express concern for her brother.

“Praying for everyone at Reynolds!” she posted on Facebook. “My little brother is still there & I’m freakin out! I hate being states away :-( So stressful!.”

Her brother, Jared Padgett, 15, was a freshman at Reynolds High School in Troutdale. Cooper’s fears about her brother were realized, but likely not in the way she imagined.

Padgett was the shooter who killed another student and apparently took his own life, police said.

Police found the teen’s body in a restroom, law enforcement officials said.

Elaborate on why it is horrible

(probably spoilers (13 reasons why))

i havent really thought that much about it… but like, the characters? hannah is so fucking annoying and why are all the girls so “if you dont even know what im talking about im not gonna tell you?” and it’s so stereotypical with a clever nerdy introverted intellectual indie dude… honestly it’s basically a very dramatic john green series

it lost me the minute it started with that joy division shit and sid vicious costume, such cheap tricks to please pretentious assholes and the ending with the school shooter vibes, mental illness ‘underground’ music, worship of outsider-culture, it’s just too much…  but i guess it’s very tumblr  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ also it annoys me that the casting is so archetypical, a super pretty girl that apparently is the outsider?¿(im not saying that typical pretty girls arent exposed to the things she went throug and dont feel depressed , just that it’s kinda boring always to have a troubled pretty white girl as the main character ) and the rapist is of course slightly chubby looking and mean and shallow and all the *pretty guys* are the troubled complex ones you feel sympathy for.

also i dont think i’ll ever truly understand american high school series because they seem so oversaturated and i just cant relate to that much drama. 

but dont come at me for this, this is just my opinion and it’s not very substantiated, i just watched it out of boredom. 


Sandy Hook Promise is a nonprofit organisation developed by the family members of victims and survivors of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, in which 20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children aged between six and seven-years-old. He also killed six staff members, his mother, and then himself.

This PSA titled “Evan” was released by Sandy Hook Promise. It cleverly shows how very easy it is to miss the warning signs that somebody could be planning a mass shooting. It promotes the Sandy Hook Promise “Know the Signs” programmes which they run free of charge. They’re intended to teach parents and teachers how to identify if somebody needs help. Thank you to @cryptid-wendigo to showing me this video.

The last diary entry German school shooter Sebastian Bosse made dated on the same day he went to the Geschwister-Scholl-Realschule in Emsdetten, North Rhine-Westphalia and wounded five students before killing himself. He started documenting his thoughts and plans in a diary and made his first entry on August 10, 2006.
