NPR: School Shootings Overestimated by at least 2/3rds

An unexpected but appreciated attempt at real journalism.
This spring the U.S. Education Department reported that in the 2015-2016 school year, "nearly 240 schools ... reported at least 1 incident involving a school-related shooting." The number is far higher than most other estimates.

But NPR reached out to every one of those schools repeatedly over the course of three months and found that more than two-thirds of these reported incidents never happened.... We were able to confirm just 11 reported incidents[.]
It's as if the government bureaucracies can't be trusted to tell citizens the truth.

They were ordered to gin up a perception, and then the DS would fulfill the demand. Although it might actually not be the DS behind a lot of those shootings, fake or real, because there is another faction at work: the Space Navy/Force.

What Space Force people are asking? The one DJT made, and also the one the US had that Americans weren't cleared to know about.
