On Friday, May 18, 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtzis opened fired at Santa Fe High School, where he was also an 11th grade student. The terrorist (yep, we are calling him a terrorist) killed nine teachers and one student. At least ten others were injured. He was reportedly armed with two guns, a shotgun and a .38 caliber handgun, that he took from his father. See the mugshot of the terrorist below:
BuzzFeed News found a social media account belonging to Pagourtzis, including a post that featured a photo of a t-shirt that read “Born To Kill,” which was posted on April 30. That same day, he posted Nazi iconography, including a duster jacket with a variety of symbols including the Iron Cross, a German military award last given by the Nazis, and a hammer and sickle. He wrote that he equated the Iron Cross with “bravery,” and the hammer and sickle with “rebellion.” See below:
He also posted photos of weapons, see below:
Clearly, several signs were ignored.
Some news reports are already showing him sympathy, claiming he was bullied. However, Rey Montemayor III, a senior who said he played football with Pagourtzis, told The Daily Beast he was not bullied, “I played football with him for three years,” Montemayor said. “People on the news said he was bullied a lot. I never seen him being bullied. I never bullied him. He was cool to me. I lifted with him a couple of times.”
Pagourtzis was injured during the arrest but he is still alive and has been charged with capital murder.
It is fascinating how Waffle House shooter Travis Reinking, Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof, Colorado shooter James Holmes and this latest terrorist can all be arrested, but an unarmed Stephon Clark — who didn’t shot anyone — can be fired at 20 times in his backyard. Fascinating.
Our condolences go out to everyone affected by this tragedy.
