Suspected High School Shooter Released from Jail, Media Silent

The suspect's attorney claims that this was not a "standard-issue school shooting.”


A Texas student who allegedly shot and injured four people at his school has been released on a $75,000 bond.

The suspect, 18-year-old Timothy George Simpkins, was escorted from the jailhouse on Thursday and did not respond to reporters’ questions.

Simpkins was joined by his attorney who said that the shooting was being overblown by the media.

Civil rights attorney Kim T. Cole spoke on behalf of the suspect, and claimed that the shooting was not a “standard-issue school shooting.”

Many are claiming that this school shooting has been swept under the rug by the media, due to the fact that the shooter was not white.

One of the four victims was a teacher, who was shot in the back after trying to break up the fight.
