Media doesn't seem terribly interested in this for once. Too busy with the royal wedding?

Someone going berserk with a gun and shooting lots of children isn't that newsworthy when it's in America.

The UK media will be doing everything they can to minimise coverage of any incidents whilst the royal wedding is taking place, they will have been issued a D notice from the government. 

I shall be scanning RT etc and sharing any high profile stories on social media

Well the So-Called BBC website has caught up with it, and it's now the lead story on the world news page. There just seemed to be a long delay in the main news outlets covering it.

Between 8 and 10 dead, gunman in custody. Brilliant, here we go again.

Shortly after the shooting began in the town of about 13,000 residents, a man carrying an American flag, wearing a Trump hat, and carrying a pistol on his hip approached news cameras.

The man, who did not give his name, said his goal was to "get to the school. Make America great again."

Another man then told reporters "we need prayers".

"This idiot is walking down the street with a damned pistol on his side where we just had kids get shot," he said referring to the other man.

"I'm a guns rights person. I have guns. But this idiot is walking down here and saying he needs to make America great again. That's not what America needs."

The royal wedding should be overshadowed by incidents around the world this weekend.

There will be great attempts to cultivate a patriotic feelgood factor via media coverage  

must stay vigilant.

Santa Fe Police Chief Jeff Powell said: "There have been explosive devices found inside the high school, and in the surrounding areas adjacent to the high school."

He advised residents to be aware of any suspicious objects they find.

"Do not touch any items that look out of place," he said, warning residents to immediately call police.

He added that at least six people had been transported to hospital with gunshot wounds, including a Santa Fe school police officer.

The probable cause affidavit says he told an investigator he spared people he liked because he wanted his story told

Sounds like the usual bullying / ostracisation scenario that seems to be at the root of these incidents.
