- Following the Wednesday shooting at a Florida high school that took 17 lives, gun control activists and Second Amendment advocates are predictably arguing about the causes of such horrible violence and what to do next. We should not overlook the big role that social media companies play.
Nikolas Cruz – the 19-year-old who has confessed to the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida – posted disturbing material on social media before his attack, authorities said. His posts reportedly included discussing his desire to kill someone, along with hateful messages threatening violence against African-Americans, Jews and gay people, according to media reports.

June Jago Memorial Fund
The Dr Pepper Dallas Cup has announced the creation of the June Jago Memorial Fund. The fund will benefit and bring awareness to the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation.
Ms. Jago was married to Dallas Cup Ambassador and former Dallas Cup Executive Director, Gordon Jago, for 54 years. Before they married in 1960, June served as a Police Officer in London, England. She developed several ties to the Dallas Police Department when the Jagos moved to Dallas in 1984 so that Gordon could start his extensive career with the Dallas Sidekicks.
In honor of the June Jago, this memorial fund was established to assist the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation in its police support efforts.
