Media Ignoring That Colorado School Shooter Was Stopped by Armed Security Guard

Did you know that the latest left-winger who decided to shoot up a local school was stopped in 80 seconds by an armed security guard? Few do because the media refuses to focus on this fact.

Arapaho High School shooter Karl Pierson was loaded up for a long shooting spree when he entered his high school at about 12:30 on December 13. But it was all over in seconds resulting in this admitted communist shooting himself when he was confronted by an armed Arapahoe County Sheriff’s officer. The sheriff was employed by the school as its Student Resource Officer.

The media isn’t focusing much on the true facts in this story because it doesn’t fit its narrative.

But the fact is the shooter was a left-wing criminal and was stopped by a man with a gun! These are facts that the left-wing, anti-Constitution media establishment are loath to report.

In fact, when it first published a story about the shooting, The Denver Post buried the fact that the boy was a self-identified socialist in the 13th paragraph of its story. But then, early the next morning, the paper erased the word “socialist” altogether and never told readers it had done so.

Why was the Post trying to shield this would be mass murderer from his own acclaimed, left-wing views?

Your guess is as good as mine. OK, who am I kidding, the left-wing paper didn’t want to identify a killer as a socialist for fear that it would make socialists look bad. But think of this: would the paper have been as reluctant to identify this creep’s political ideas if he called himself a tea partier?

Nope. They’d have been all over it.

The other key aspect of this story that most news outlets are trying to downplay is the fact that this kid was stopped in seconds by an armed security guard.

One of the few outlets to report on this fact was CNN, which wrote:

The deputy was yelling for people to get down and identified himself as a county deputy sheriff, Robinson said. “We know for a fact that the shooter knew that the deputy was in the immediate area and, while the deputy was containing the shooter, the shooter took his own life.”

But even at that, these facts were buried deep down in the story instead of serving as a central point of the news as it should.

Left-wingers don’t want America to know that this kid is a socialist nor do they want us all to know that an armed man in a school stopped a mass murder. This does not fit the story they want to tell the country.

    When CNN of all outlets is more up front about an inconvenient truth for the left-wing agenda the inescapable conclusion is the media at large simply has departed the solar system.

  • LiberalNightmare

    If the left was really interested in stopping school shootings, (as opposed to using the school shootings to advance their agenda) this would be the sort of thing they would be interested in.

    Don’t know about ignored, but certainly not a headline.

    The school cop should be a hero.
