The high school i went didn't have an officer on grounds didnt need one the police department was literally on the other side of the base ball fields depending on which side of the school you where on you could see the building from the class room.

This actually doesn't "qualify" as a mass killing

terrible for that innocent young girl, but good that measures were in place to control the potential damage.

it won't get much, if any media attention...maybe fox news...

if schools would #1) secure their damn buildings like a bank #2) AND/OR employ a well trained armed security guard.....and you will see school shooting start to go away...

will it stop mass shooting?....not likely....but at least it won't be our freakin kids as the targets of choice.

and yes....another low life POS coward that uses mass homicide for their "15 minutes"....$%#$% coward!!! homicidal coward shooters.....plz just kill yourself and be done with it, freaking waste of oxygen!!!!

Colorado's Liberal Democrat governor did down play the armed officer. He said schools should be places of learning not armed forts. He and his 8 armed body guards then went to lunch.

i agree (is that twice now, nitestalker? )....the armed officer was VERY downplayed in this story imo.

The thing is the world is a dangerous place always has been most people in this country live in a fantasy world of safety and don't want to wake up to the reality that no one its truly safe in this world. So they don't take the measures they need to so what end s up happening is people get hurt and killed because they think it can't happen here but as were seen it can.

I know people think a lot of us are crazy for wanting armed gaurds in school but really it necessary. Another thing that ticks me off is the fact this guy ran torward danger and they downplay it. If he had ran away from it they would have thrown a huge fit.

I liked the part where the janitor ran out of the building with the librarian and after said he was trying to get the shooter to follow him, now I have no beef with the man saving his own life,, he had no obligation to fight, but lets call it what it is.

Here , the governor seems to admit that the new tougher gun laws did nothing to stop the school shooter.

That's right, but you notice that the main stream media isn't exactly putting this fact out there.
