The story behind what led up to the school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
- Today’s show is the story behind what led up to the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, last month. School and law enforcement officials implemented a policy aimed at reducing student arrests for criminal behavior, particularly among minorities.
- Statistics showed the policy was a success—but the true effects were terrible: Student criminality increased, and officials had to work harder and harder to cover it up to preserve their “enlightened” approach to juvenile delinquency.
- This example highlights powerful lessons we must learn as a society and in our individual lives: Evil must not be ignored, excused or accommodated. It must be eliminated, or it will destroy us.
- And I’ll conclude the show by talking about how an overlooked command in the Old Testament reinforces this principle on how to overcome evil.
