Know The Signs: People Are Getting Chills From School Violence
Connecticut nonprofit Sandy Hook Promise set up a shocking video after the 2012 Newtown massacre, which is a part of the gun violence prevention group's campaign called "Know the Signs."Here is how it goes.
In the video, an exchange of messages occurs between this student, Evan, and a classmate.
I am bored," Evan writes. Hi, bored, nice to meet you," the mystery student replies.
The exchange continues...
Evan tries desperately to figure out who he is writing to...
When the library closes, Evan thinks he has missed his chance.
But he discovers the mystery girl when he signs her friend's yearbook.
However, this joyful meeting is interrupted...by a school shooter.
Students scatter in panic...It is chilling, isn't?
While you were watching Evan, another guy was showing signs of planning a shooting. However, it was until after the shooting, the PSA started to go through “signs” of the shooter that the viewer missed.
Gun violence is preventable.
There are tons of response around. Shocked emoji face was everywhere.
Shocking. Frightening. Devastating. True."
But others thought it far from "true." This man thought the video was proof of 'liberals' flippant relationship with facts."
And another called the PSA "ridiculous."
But the response was mostly positive, with this Twitter user writing that the PSA "illustrates the problem perfectly."
