Today’s read is from Andrew Pollack. His daughter Meadow was murdered in the Parkland school shooting. He is co-author of “Why Meadow Died: The People and Policies that Created the Parkland Shooter and Endanger America’s Students.”
Here’s a brief excerpt:
Last week, the U.S. Secret Service released a groundbreaking report analyzing school shootings and mass casualty attacks over the past decade. If taken seriously by school leaders, this report should help spot and stop threats. And if taken seriously by the Trump re-election campaign, this report could provide the key to victory in 2020 by helping them make the case that having a Democrat in the White House puts our students in greater danger.
Historically, Republicans have not tried to make political hay out of school shootings. It has always been the Democrats who have jumped to capitalize on kids getting murdered in schools to grow their political power.
