School Security questioned after armed man walks into Atlanta area elementary school


An Atlanta area community in unincorporated DeKalb County outside Atlanta is counting themselves lucky after no one was injured when an armed man with anger issues walked into an elementary school and barricaded himself in the school office. 20-year-old Michael Brandon Hill was wearing all black and was armed with an AK-47 assault-style rifle when he allegedly fired about six shots at police before surrendering peacefully after they returned fire. The father of one student said Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy definitely needs to upgrade security and that anyone can walk into the school. On December 14, 2012, 20-year-old Adam Lanza fatally shot twenty children and six adult staff members in a mass murder at Sandy Hook Elementary School in the village of Sandy Hook in Newtown, Connecticut.

Pfc. Bradley Manning has been sentenced to 35 years in prison by a US military judge for his conviction under the Espionage Act but was acquitted on charges of Aiding the Enemy. Manning, whom many see as whistle-blower leaked classified information to the website Wikileaks to expose what he called the “bloodlust” in Iraq. In response to his 35-year sentence, the Center for Constitutional Rights issued a statement condemning the sentence and said that Manning should have never been prosecuted.

Yesterday we discussed Glenn Greenwald’s partner, David Miranda being detained and having property confiscated by UK authorities at an airport on his way from Europe to his home country of Brazil.
