Middle Schooler Killed During Anti-Gun Walkout
El Paso — A middle schooler was killed during on Friday morning during an organized school walkout for “gun safety.”
“Police say 11-year-old Jonathan Benko was taking part in Parkland Middle School’s organized walkout when he and a group of students left the designated walkout area,” according to a local news report. “Police say around 10:30 Friday morning, the group crossed Loop 375 then attempted to cross it again. Benko was the last in the group to cross and was struck by a Ford F150.”
Benko sustained serious injuries from the collision and died after being transported to a local hospital.
He was a student at Parkland Middle School, in El Paso, which bears the same name as the high school in Florida where Nikolas Cruz opened fire on February 14, killing 17.
Since the mass shooting in Florida, students have taken part in multiple marches in an effort coordinated not at a grassroots level, but by nefarious elements of the Democrat party, stomping on the graves of slain teenagers to push a radical anti-gun agenda.
Friday marked the second school walkout in protest of gun violence.
Parkland High School student and pissant gun-grabber David Hogg was among those supporting Friday’s walkout:

“Public schools are on notice: You can’t discipline students more harshly for gun violence walkouts than missing class for any other reason.
#NationalSchoolWalkout,” said the ACLU tweet that Hogg referenced.
Has-been actress Alyssa Milano also tweeted her support for Friday’s walkout.
During the student walkouts on March 14th, the @NRA tweeted a photo of an AR-15 assault rifle and the statement “I’ll control my own guns, thank you.”

“During the student walkouts on March 14th, the
@NRA tweeted a photo of an AR-15 assault rifle and the statement “I’ll control my own guns, thank you.” Maybe. But from now on, we’ll control our own government, thank you. #NationalSchoolWalkout #NoRA,” she said.
Neither have expressed their condolences to Benko’s family.
