Academic disruption and children panicking after the shooting The Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee


Yesterday morning at about 10:13 am in Nashville, The Covenant School was disrupted by gunfire. The suspect, Audrey Hale, killed three children that were nine years old, two teachers in their early sixties, and the head of the school. When the police arrived, they killed her in an exchange of fire.

The police are busy investigating the case after raiding Hale’s home. While she had two assault rifles and a pistol on her during the assault, there were also shotguns in her home. They found some documents with plans for the school, including a layout of where the cameras were. 

Here’s a video released by the police so you can see what happened. Please note, this may not be suitable for anyone that doesn’t like firearms being fired.

So, there are a few things that strike me as odd about this video. One of them is me wondering where everyone else is in the video. I only see Hale for the most part, and the school looks pretty empty for a Monday morning. Of course, everyone could have been in class, but why was no one running in fear when the shots went off?

I’m not saying it didn’t happen; these are just questions that popped into my mind. In the next post and video, you can see one of the mothers getting upset as Fox News tried to cover the incident. She wants to know why no one is doing anything about the latest shooting sprees.

The police also gave a briefing about the Nashville shooting. At the moment, the motive for the shooting is unknown. What we do know is that Hale was 28 years old, she was a former student of the school, and she was born female but had male pronouns. 

I don’t want to speculate, but it would be interesting to know what the Presbyterian school’s views are on transgender people. Or perhaps, there is no logical motive for why she just walked into the school and started gunning teachers down. For now, we’ll have to wait until more information is released.
