A 20-something-year-old gay man who goes by the alias Alihan was one of dozens arrested, imprisoned, and beaten in the Russian republic of Chechnya. He’s escaped to Canada, but is one of very few who have managed to get to safety after being rounded up and brought to a prison where they were beaten, tortured, and asked to give up former partners and other gay men. Activists say even a year after the crackdown, it remains difficult to get victims out of Russia and into one of the 20 countries that have so far offered asylum to only a small number of escapees.

Three students who knew suspected high school shooter Nikolas Cruz told BuzzFeed News they reported him to school administrators for erratic behavior and threatening them after an ex-girlfriend broke up with him and began seeing another teenager. One student said she was wary of Cruz because “he had guns and weapons and we all knew about it.” Others said they brought their concerns about Cruz to the head of JROTC at the school and submitted written reports to the school’s head of security. Cruz was expelled in 2017 but the messages continued. About six months later, on Valentine’s Day, he allegedly returned to his former high school and opened fire.

After the Florida school shooting comic book artist Pia Guerra was inspired to draw this powerful cartoon of Aaron Feis, the football coach and campus monitor, who died protecting students from the gunfire. The illustration depicts Feis being welcomed to heaven by all of the other student and teacher victims of previous school shootings. "I wanted to take the standard 'all these angels are in a better place' meme and turn it around a little, to show these wonderful, beautiful, brave lives...who should still be here," Guerra said. "To both prompt the viewer to ask why they aren’t here while also paying tribute to Mr. Feis’s act of love." (📷: Pia Guerra)
