On Wednesday, Fox 6 News reported that a 59-year-old faculty member at St. Josaphat Parish school in Milwaukee was “immediately terminated” after accidentally discharging a gun on the school campus on April 5, causing minor injuries to a student.

Father Lawrence Zurek, the administrator of the school, announced that the Milwaukee Police Department is still investigating the incident, but gave a brief overview of what happened.

“On Friday morning, April 12, I was informed by an employee of the school that a weapon was accidentally discharged at the school on April 5th,” said Zurek in a statement. “I tried to find out more information, contacted the Milwaukee police, and the employee who brought the gun to school was immediately terminated by me.”

“It is very fortunate that the accidental weapon discharge at the St. Josaphat School on April 5 resulted only in a minor injury to one of the students in the school’s care,” said Alderman Jose Perez. “It could have been far worse.” Perez added that the district attorney was still reviewing whether to pursue charges against the employee.

This has always been confounding, as the official summary readout of the famous phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky shows Trump clearly conditioning military aid and U.S. support on Zelensky giving a public boost to Trump's conspiracy theories about former Vice President Joe Biden and other Democratic leaders. The witnesses so far have simply affirmed what the written record demonstrates amply.

Published

on

The phrase “OK boomer” has become a catch-all put-down that Generation Zers and young millennials have been using to dismiss retrograde arguments made by baby boomers, the generation of Americans who are currently 55 to 73 years old.
