Are there really no black school shooters?

Not according to Van Jones, the Special Advisor for Green Jobs at the White House Council on Environmental Quality, who states that a href=”http://www.breitbart.tv/van-jones-only-suburbal-white-kids-shoot-up-schools/”only white kids shoot up suburban schools:/abr /br /blockquote”You’ve never seen a Columbine done by a black child. Never. They always say, ‘We can’t believe it happened here. We can’t believe it’s these suburban white kids.’ It’s only them. Now, a black kid might shoot another black kid. He’s not going to shoot up the whole school.”/blockquotebr /br /I guess Van Jones never heard of Nicholas Elliot. But I have. During my research for my book on school shootings, a href=”http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0615112234?ie=UTF8tag=wwwviolentkicomlinkCode=as2camp=1789creative=9325creativeASIN=0615112234″span style=”font-style:italic;”The Scarred Heart: Understanding and Identifying Kids Who Kill/span,/aimg src=”http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=wwwviolentkicoml=as2o=1a=0615112234″ width=”1″ height=”1″ border=”0″ alt=”” style=”border:none !important; margin:0px !important;” / I described Elliot’s case. He was a black sixteen year old male who attended a Christian Academy. He was quite shy and taunted and teased by classmates. On December 16, 1988, Nicholas came to school with a semiautomatic pistol and two hundred rounds of ammunition and entered a classroom. He opened fire, killing one teacher and wounding another. Luckily, his gun jammed before he could accomplish a bigger mass shooting. At his trial, the psychiatrist who evaluated Nicholas testified that was a “pressure cooker” who was unable to express his feelings and exploded after being tortured by classmates. br /br /Maybe next time Jones opens his mouth, he should try to get his facts straight. But then, what can we expect from someone who thought 9/11 was an inside job?br /br /Update: a href=”http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D9AHL8O80show_article=1″Jones quits./a
