I was going to ask how Speaker's Corner was faring in the current political climate in the UK. Then I read the article and it turned out that one of the three had actually been planning to speak there.

Of course I would be. I don't like my country not having free speech as it is, let alone denying people entry because they want to interview somebody and give a speech.

Florida shooting: Students vow 'never again' in US walkout - BBC News

Florida shooting: Students vow 'never again' in US walkout

One month after the Parkland school shooting, thousands of students left their classes to commemorate the 17 lives lost - and to call on lawmakers to pass gun control reform.
Fair play to them.

Broward Sheriff’s Office releases video recording of deputy during Parkland school massacre

Took them long enough. I wonder if they have him under a protection program.

Peterson, who resigned after being suspended and is under investigation over his actions, has defended his response to the shooting by arguing that he believed the gunfire was coming from outside, rather than inside, a school building. Because of that, he said, he “took up a tactical position” to try to assess the situation.

Roundly vilified for not entering a Parkland high school during a mass shooting, Broward Deputy Scot Peterson insisted publicly that he believed that gunfire was happening outside on campus — not inside the building.

But internal radio dispatches released by the Broward Sheriff’s Office Thursday show Peterson immediately fixated on Building 12 and even radioed that gunfire was happening “inside.”

And, just as school shooter Nikolas Cruz was fleeing the building after killing 17 people, Peterson warned his fellow officers to stay away — even as wounded students and staff lay inside.
The LA police ordered an entire unit to retreat during the Rodney King riots.

Police choose not to approach armed suspects all the time.

They are trained NOT to put themselves in harms way. That’s why they shoot immediately even if there’s only the smallest possibility of danger. They’re not quite as cowardly as our military but it’s close.

It was apparently some sort of "instant bridge" that was installed in just a few hours. Seems like someone didn't quite go through all the details like you would when planning the construction of a traditional bridge. Seems crazy to risk it if it was a sort of experimental technology. I wonder how many of these have been installed before, if any. In any case, seems like tragedy resulting from hurried decision making.

Terrible no matter what the case.
