Reporter Rushed to Scene of Kentucky School Shooting Only to Find That Her Son Was the Suspect

In a world where school shootings are horrifyingly normal, parents worry that their kids will be next. A mother and newspaper editor faced a different nightmare last week in Benton, Kentucky when she rushed to the scene of a shooting at the county high school to discover that her 15-year-old son was the suspect.

Mary Garrison Minyard has declined to comment on the incident or her son, Gabe Parker, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported. He has been accused of using a handgun to shoot and kill two classmates and wound 14 other people right before class. The teenage boy now faces two counts of murder and at least 12 counts of first-degree assault, according to Reuters.

The two victims, Preston Cope and Bailey Holt, were also 15 years old.

On today’s show, Glenn pointed out that we’ve become numb to school shooting stories; they barely register as we follow the news. He wondered what we can pass on to our kids when we don’t really have a baseline for what “normal” means anymore.

“I hate to judge what ‘normal’ is anymore because I don’t know what ‘normal’ is anymore,” Glenn said. “Give my kids a ‘normal’ childhood? How? What is a ‘normal’ childhood?”

GLENN: So, remember, last week, this -- this is horrible.

I should be able to get on and just say, so the school shooting. And we should all say, oh, yeah, last week. I'll bet you there was a good number of people that were like, there was a school shooting last week? There was another deadly school shooting that happened last week, and it happened in Kentucky. Now, imagine, you're a parent. And you're either a policeman, and so you hear about it. Or you're a reporter and you hear about it. And you rush to the school because you're trying to cover it.

But also, you're a parent. And you've got a kid in that school.

So you're trying to do your job. And you're freaking out about your kid. And is my kid safe? Is my kid safe? Is my kid safe? This was the problem with the editor of the Marshall County Daily online.

Tuesday morning, shots are fired. First, they think that it was in the shop. I think it was in the shop class. They heard the shots and thought it was just some banging on some metal. Then they realized after a few shots that it was actual gunfire.

So the word goes out. The police are dispatched. She's a member of the press. She runs out.

She's freaking out about her child.

And then she finds out that it is her son that is the shooter.

This is such a tragic story. I mean, for everybody involved.

15-year-old Gabe Parker, he's accused of pulling out a handgun and then fatally shooting two classmates, wounding 14 other people. It was just before the class was supposed to begin.

Everybody who said they knew him -- said, he was a really good kid. A nice kid. He was a sophomore. Played the trombone in the band. He was shy.

He would go fishing with his grandparents. They said that his grandma was his best friend.

One of the sophomores with him said, I was in the same math class with him. He was a really good kid. But he was quiet. Kept to himself.

Nobody knew, even mom standing outside. Nobody knew he had issues in school.

He was well-liked, everybody thought.

One of -- or some of his friends started telling one reporter that he was -- and they -- they said snappy. He was snappy when he came back from Christmas break.

And he started talking about violence and how he wanted to join the Mafia. We don't know yet what this kid's story is. But he was definitely trying to shoot -- he was definitely trying to shoot to kill. He shot two students right in the head.

Is that a shooter game? That is desensitized to that or at least made it so he's really good at that. Not blaming it on the game. I don't know what happened.

I do know that mom and dad were divorced. Dad apparently had a short fuse. Had a restraining order at one point.

But he's charged now as a juvenile with two counts of murder, 12 counts of assault. They're -- he's in jail now. And this week, they are going to try to move that he is tried as an adult.

Tomorrow, I want to talk to you a little bit about -- about this a little bit more in-depth. In a conversation that my son and I had last night. And, you know, I hate to judge what normal is anymore. Because I don't know what normal is anymore. I know what normal was for me is not normal anymore. Give my kids a normal childhood. How? What is a normal childhood? The one that I was raised in, or the one that my grandparents were raised in, or the one that's happening now? We'll talk a little bit about that, on tomorrow's broadcast.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."

The Biden administration has weaponized the federal government against the American people. But officials have hidden most of their attacks behind a secretive and cavernous bureaucracy.

There are so many unsolved mysteries that Joe Biden and the Democrats not only refuse to answer, but in some cases appear as though they are ACTIVELY trying to cover up. Like what happened on January 6? Who is Ray Epps? Who planted the pipe bombs? What’s in Biden’s executive order on elections? What happened to the SCOTUS Dobbs leaker? What’s the COVID origin story? What’s happening with crypto, FTX, and the Central Bank Digital Currency?

These are just a few of the unsolved mysteries that we need to DEMAND answers on. On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck outlines a chalkboard that will leave you convinced the DOJ and FBI are LYING to the American people. The more secrets the Deep State holds, the more its power over us grows.

'I NEVER thought I'd talk about this': Was Glenn Beck's CHILLING dream actually a WARNING?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck decided to share a very unusual, extremely vivid dream he had ten years ago — a dream he thought he'd never talk about on the air until he began to see it as a warning that we should all know about.

"I never ever thought I would talk about this on the air, but I feel compelled to tell you that seasons have changed again, and it is becoming more and more apparent. You need to know what you're dealing with," Glenn began.

"If you are a long-time listener of this program, you know that one of the reasons I left New York ... was that I had a medical condition. Part of it was brought on by no REM sleep for about 10 years ... and for 10 years, I never had a dream," he explained. "However, during this period I had what could be described as a dream. I do not believe it was."

"In this 'dream' ... I am in a hallway of the White House. And I'm walking into a big room where there's a bunch of cubicles, and people look up like, 'who's walking in?' There are people behind me, but I don't know who they are yet. I just know I'm being pushed forward by them," Glenn continued. "I realize that everybody in the White House is terrified of who's ever behind me ... I glance back and I see people that are in uniforms that I've never seen before. I have seen them since, but that will be for some other time...."

"So, these guys in the uniforms are in the hallway, and one guy says, 'him, him, and him, take them out' ... and I'm the only one still sitting at the table. They go out ... then I hear three gunshots and they say, 'yeah, that happened pretty quickly for them. However, you, we're going to get to know ... because you really have no idea who you're dealing with.' And that's when one of them ... ripped off his face and he was Satan. Or, he was a demon, okay? Horrifying. Then I wake up."

Glenn went on to explain that, while the dream was so vivid and disturbing that he thought about it almost daily for well over a year, it was what happened next — during a discussion with a prominent religious leader — that really hinted his "dream" might actually have been a vision of the future and a warning.

"I will never forget it, and I will never dismiss it," Glenn said of what he learned. "I'm sharing it with you today because you must not dismiss what you're dealing with. We are not in a battle [of] politics ... our whole culture has become evil."

"You have to get to a point where you are going to choose a side. There will be no one left on the benches, and if you think you can sit it out you will end up on the wrong side. I urge you to know who you serve. This is a different time in human experience. This is not normal. None of this is normal," he warned.
