Lee High School Bus Massacre


Lee High School Bus Massacre

Tragedy struck yesterday in Huntsville, Alabama, as a Huntsville City Schools bus carrying 44 high school students to a vocational technical school for morning classes careened off the elevated Interstate on-ramp, apparently after having been cut-off by another vehicle. Two young ladies were killed at the scene, subsequently, a third died later in the afternoon, and a fourth has passed today. Although many more students were injured seriously, about half were actually able to walk away, or shortly after being treated for minor injuries.

Recently my website focus hasn’t included covering local events, and I had actually intended to take the Thanksgiving week off from my column. However, this accident happened quite close to home as I live in the area. In fact, if the accident had happened another five hundred yards down the highway, the bus might have landed in my garage.

The NTSB is on the scene and is conducting an investigation along with local law enforcement. The tragedy has ignited the debate over the lack of seat belts in school busses nationwide. Interestingly, an NTSB spokesman pointed out that school busses are inherently safe vehicles and that out of more than 44,000 vehicle deaths on the highways of America last year, fewer than ten fatalities occurred to school bus passengers. Some even argue that having safety belts on schools busses is actually more dangerous than not.

Of course, one fatality is too many, and it is hoped that the investigation might result in even fewer such tragedies.

I offer my condolence to the families and friends of those who were injured or lost their life.

The four young ladies who have died as a result of what ultimately was an act of domestic terrorism are: Christine Collier, Nichole Ford, Tanisha Hill, and Krystal McCrary.

    The problem that intelligent and well-informed people face in Alabama, is that there are still plenty of rural places tucked away up in the holler where Johnny still hasn’t traveled farther from home than he has to go to fetch a bucket of water from the well. Even though this observation is quite literally true, it is just as unfortunate that it is also metaphorically true, and so extends to what otherwise appears to be “normal” people living in places like Huntsville. The fact is, the South ain’t gonna “rise again” in the sense that seems to motivate the cretins – that South simply don’t exist, that South was an entirely different animal whose politics and plantations are extinct.

    The west coast sweep, apparently a well orchestrated and illegal conspiracy by those municipalities, appeared to begin in Seattle, Washington when a large encampment under a six mile expanse of elevated interstate was targeted and cleared out on the mayor’s order. One report suggested that as many as 5000 people were affected beginning in a camp where two people were killed on the same evening of the mayor’s announcement. Seattle is the city that actually budgeted to provide tickets out-of-town, based on unverifiable and arbitrary criteria.

    Unfortunately, the radicalization of American police will contribute more harm to the “war on terror” than they will help. Ultimately, the extremists in law enforcement intend to advance their own radical, unconstitutional, agenda and while they may not be in immediate agreement with the Islamic style radicals, they are often on a path that is parallel.
