Dillon Nathanial Xynides Brought an AR-15 to His Florida High School

“By all accounts, Xynides is said to be a very good young man with no prior disciplinary actions noted by school administration. Friends tell us he made a stupid mistake.” – Dade City Police commenting on Dillon Nathanial Xynides bringing an AR-15 to school following the school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

 

 

What I find just as disturbing as moronic Florida student Dillon Nathanial Xynides bringing an AR-15 to his high school a week after 17 people were killed with one at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, is Dade City Police’s response to the incident. While I can’t believe Xynides wasn’t gunned down by police, at the same time I can. 12-year-old Tamir Rice was gunned down for having an airsoft replica, yet Xynides brought an AR-15 to his high school one week after a Florida school shooting and Dade City Police’s response was “We don’t believe he meant any harm“, “Xynides is said to be a very good young man“, and “he made a stupid mistake.” I highly doubt that would’ve been Dade City Police’s response had Xynides been a person of color. In fact, I’m pretty sure their response would have been to riddle Xynides with bullets, but there are clearly some double-standards at play here.

      You are correct. I believe Dade City Police would’ve pumped him full of holes had be been black or Muslim, but they’re acting as if what this guy did was nothing. Motherfucker brought a GUN to school, and not just any gun, an assault rifle…but he gets the benefit of doubt? 😑 Hypocrisy.

    It would be a good idea to become familiar with the facts of what happened before making foolish comments. It just makes you sound stupid or racist.

    He didn’t have the gun on his person. The rifle was seen inside his truck by an SRO officer and Dillon was taken out of class to accompany the officer to his truck to identify the weapon. When should the Pasco County officers have shot Dillon? At what point?

      I read several articles about this incident, and saw the news coverage, so I certainly don’t need YOU to tell me to “familiarize myself with any facts.” I’m aware of where the gun was found, so don’t make assumptions. It also doesn’t matter if the gun wasn’t “on his person”, he brought it onto school grounds (where his vehicle was parked), which is a clear indication that he has no respect for gun laws. Here in Florida guns aren’t allowed to be brought on school grounds even if they’re being stored in your car. As of 2014 the Parking Lot Exception applies to college campuses, so maybe you should “familiarize” YOURSELF with Florida gun laws where schools are concerned: https://lawcenter.giffords.org/guns-in-schools-in-florida/.

      Perhaps you should also familiarize yourself with reading comprehension, because at NO POINT did I say Xynides “should’ve been shot”, at no point. You can’t even validate what makes this post seem racist to YOU (and YOU only) because that’s a completely false description of the post.
