Marjory Stoneman Douglas Students Now Have To Carry Clear Backpacks

Show Caption

Seventeen people, majority students, died at Stoneman Douglas after former student Nikolas Cruz walked onto campus February 14 and made his way through school buildings, gunning down those he encountered.

In addition to displaying the orange tag, senior Carmen Lo stuffed a sign into her backpack that read "this backpack is probably worth more than my life".

Speaking about that comment, Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, told Newsweek via text, "I continue to be both shocked and incensed by what is clearly a coordinated attack on the Parkland students-who are children and also survivors of gun violence". For everyone to know what's going on, they don't need to know.

According to WPTV, the student who made a threat on social media posted photos with a handgun and bullet and included threatening messages.

Policies aimed making it harder for people to own firearms aren't fundamentally different from the above security measures, even if some students feel otherwise.

Senior Delaney Tarr tagged Rubio in a tweet of a picture of her bag with feminine products and the orange price tag attached to it.

She also posted a tweet shortly after aimed at U.S. Sen.

"We will need to use the first few days to issue backpacks and organize around the new procedures", Superintendent Robert Runcie said. Security eventually arrived after Pittman called Anna Fusco, president of the Broward Teachers Union, and Gov. Rick Scott's office. "As a first step, we are looking to see if we can get the kids through these entrances in a timely manner", Principal Ty Thompson said in a March 30 memo to parents.

Students are now used to seeing the added police presence.

"I feel like that's something that should be at concerts and not at school", Sutton stressed.

They're too restrictive, yet somehow not effective enough, they say.

"The little things they're trying to do are not going to change anything unless they change the laws", Compos said.

On Monday, many students entered the campus carrying plastic grocery bags containing their books and other belongings.

Students from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida have been at the centre of those protests, demanding more from their politicians and legislators and calling on US President Donald Trump to confront the issue.
