Houston police chief says he's 'hit rock bottom' after school shooting

A crowd of a few dozen people including student survivors of the attack, family members, chaplains and police gathered to observe a 10 a.m. CT (1500 GMT) moment of silence called for by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

"We have 50 million abortions", he said, according to CNN. Jagdish Khubchandani, an associate professor of community health at Ball State University, previously told Teen Vogue that nearly two-third of school violence prevention policies don't specifically mention how to handle situations of intimate partner violence in teens.

Chief Teresa Ramon with the Judson ISD Police Department said the Texas School District Police Chiefs' Association has requested to take part in these ongoing conversations. A 17-year-old student is being held on murder charges.

The third roundtable discussion will take place Thursday, May 24.

The Islamic Society for Greater Houston says services for 17-year-old Pakistani exchange student Sabika Sheikh are scheduled for a mosque in suburban Houston.

Reynolds-Perez says while she supports adding metal detectors in schools, that won't be enough to prevent violence. "She was literally like a daughter to us".

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo has been pointed in his response to the violence in nearby Santa Fe.

"It is their faith in God that led them through the pathway of the stormy seas, that led them to the road to recovery and had it not been for God, they would still be stuck in a quagmire", he continued. "We need to give them as many different choices as possible".

"And we still have this gun debate, George, on whether or not teachers should be armed or not".

"We found out about the shooting from a local TV channel and tried, but failed to contact Sabika and her friends", Sabika's father, Abdul Aziz, told The Associated Press. This is the American people.

Six Democrats, however, were heartened by her pledge to never restart harsh interrogation programs, even if Trump requested. The Senate Intelligence Committee grilled her about her role in torture at her confirmation hearings.


"The problem that we've got is, we are trying like the dickens to treat the symptom without treating the disease". And we can put a man on the moon and aircraft on Mars.

Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick says violent video games and eroding moral values might be to blame for the surge of violence in schools.

McGinnis established a GoFundMe account on behalf of the family to help them pay for flights from their home in California for the funeral.

The attorney said the Santa Fe school issued a statement saying that they have examined the claims of harassment, but determined they were erroneous. A fellow football player said he'd been joking around with the suspect just the day before on a field trip, while another classmate described him as "really odd and quiet" and says she wasn't surprised that he was the one who allegedly carried out the attack.

Shana's mother, Sadie Baze, told CNN she keeps expecting her daughter to walk through the front door, "but she's never going to walk through the front door again".

"The media has got to stop creating more of these monsters by oversaturation", Loesch said on the NRA's television station.

Student Kimberly Vaughan's mother, Rhonda Hart, initially posted on Facebook that Kimberly was in art class during the attack, and said she had been unable to find her.

Amid the fallout of the latest tragedy - and anger over the government's lack of action on gun control - students are using the hashtag "If I die in a school shooting" to make a powerful point.

"#IfIdieInASchoolShooting politicize my death".

Texas Governor Greg Abbott on Monday was set to hold a series of meetings on how to combat school violence, three days after a 17-year-old killed 10 people in the fourth-deadliest mass shooting at a public school in modern USA history.
