I didn't trust this story from the beginning because, as someone who has been raped, I went to the police about being victimized. I didn't go to the guy's work 7 years later to file a complaint. I don't understand the logic of going to Sesame Street.
Yeah, it seems more like a plea for attention. It's not like he was trying to blackmail him or anything, either.
I feel like I need to add that just because he didn't go to the police initially does not mean much to me as many victims of sexual assault are scared or do not report it for other reasons. It is just the way he has presented it that makes me doubt it.
A mass shooting at a fucking Elementary School?! I can't take this anymore. Why are people more concerned and passionate about protecting their right to bare arms than addressing a mental health public crisis in this repulsive country? This is utterly devastating.

When the NRA controls the gun debate, things like this happen. When we allow a ban on assualt weapons to expire, things like this happen. When we have the easiest of access to killing machines, things like this happen. When we pour all funding into killing other people at war, rather than taking care of our most vulnerable citizens, things like this happen.
Although times like these make me feel completely hopeless, I always try to remember what the wise Dr. Suess once said, "Unless someone like you cares an awful lot, nothing is going to get better, it's not."

I am completely at a loss for words over this. How many more fucking mass shootings need to happen before people take a serious look at gun control. What's disheartening is that the news of this tragedy will likely inspire people to go buy guns of their own to feel safe, instead of addressing the root of the problem.
