Parkland Shooting Victims’ Families Receive $400K Payouts

In what has become a commonality in mass shooting events the parties involved in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting event that transpired on February 14, 2018 in Parkland Florida are the recipients of substantial monetary payouts to the tune of $400,000 per family via an exclusive GoFundMe campaign apparently initiated and supervised by leading officials of the Broward Education Foundation.

“Nearly 37,000 individuals and companies donated to the fund,”Fort Lauderdale’s FoxNews6 reports.

The fund does not include the millions students have raised through March for Our Lives for advocacy efforts.

Nearly 450 students who were inside the building when the Feb. 14 shooting happened will receive $2,500 and 1,048 students who were on campus during the shooting but not in that building will receive $1,000. Payments will begin on July 16, according to a statement from the foundation.

The story continues,

Nearly everyone who applied for financial support was granted it. There were 1,654 applications submitted and 1,517 were approved, according to the foundation.

The group says 100 percent of the funds raised will go to victims and their families. Payments will begin on July 16.

“These gifts are given without any restriction on their use. The families and recipients are in the best position to determine how these funds would be most beneficial to their healing,” said Christina Fischer, Broward Education Foundation Board Chair.

Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow was killed, says he’s not taking any of the fund for himself but will give the money to her two brothers and her boyfriend.

“It will help my kids when they’re starting out their lives and it will make their sister happy,” said Pollack, who has separately raised more than $400,000 to build a playground in her honor.

Other family members who declined to go on record said they were grateful for the kind donations but saddened because it will not bring their children back.

The lofty figure shouldn’t come as a surprise given the marketing talent heading up the organization and the fact that major news media have vigorously promoted the event without ever questioning its veracity.

Newtown” is as hard a documentary to watch as you’re likely to encounter. It needed to be; anything less would have been too dismissive of one of the most traumatic American tragedies in recent memory.

The film, by Kim A. Snyder, revisits the shooting in December 2012 that left 20 students and six staff members dead at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. The focus, though, is on the aftermath — not merely the initial reaction, but the lingering effects on families, teachers, emergency medical workers.

Sandy Hook ‘Violence-Prevention Program’ Launches in Florida Public Schools

Los Angeles and Chicago Also on Board

[Editor’s Note: We are not surprised that the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre event has culminated in its participants’ direct intervention in the public schooling process through implementation of behavioral/ mental health programs. This trajectory has been evident since at least early 2013 and reported on at MHB (i.e. here and here). Such measures also involve overt and coordinated maneuvers of the Obama administration harnessing such federal agencies as the Department of Health of Human Services and Department of Education to further make over public education in a fashion similar to Scotland’s cradle-to-grave Getting It Right For Every Child. As noted in late 2014,

Using the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre as its justification, the Obama administration has recently given the psychiatric business and pharmaceutical industry a major gift by quietly introducing a behavioral and mental health program in public schools throughout the United States. The maneuver was initially laid out on January 16, 2013 in President Obama’s executive policy, Now is the Time: The President’s Plan to Protect Our Children and Our Communities by Reducing Gun Violence.

The document is partly devoted to articulating Obama’s proposed gun control measures that failed to move gain legislative traction in 2013. Yet an under-reported section of Now is the Time is applied to “making schools safer” and “improving mental health services” for students.

Obama’s Mental Health Mandate,’ November 4, 2014.

In September 2014, for example, DHS put $99 million toward ‘mental health provider training’ for public schools, while DOE allotted $70 million to create “School Climate Transformation Grants” along shared lines.-JFT]
