On Friday, 18-year-old Karl Halverson Pierson shot one student before killing himself at Arapahoe High School in suburban Denver. The media coverage of this incident has been unusual at best. Very little has been uncovered about the shooter other than the fact that he had been asked to leave the debate team and was targeting the teacher who ran the club.
As it turns out, Pierson had leftist views, and many of his classmates have described him as socialist (even if the Denver Post edited that tidbit out of its profile). The whole ordeal lasted just 80 seconds – not simply because Pierson took his own life, but because he was met by an armed guard at the school. Finally, the young man was not armed with so-called ‘assault weapons’. Instead, he reportedly carried two molotov cocktails and a shotgun. You may remember Vice President Joe Biden encouraging Americans to invest in a shotgun because it’s all you really need to defend yourself.
So why is the mainstream media not reporting any of this information? The answer is simple: It doesn’t fit the narrative. On Monday’s Glenn Beck Program, Glenn presented little-reported facts about the gunman and his motives that you probably haven’t heard from many other news sources.
