The streets that the students use to walk home have armed police. The buses travel roads patrolled by armed State Troopers. All athletic events have armed police presents.
But once the students are huddled in to an enclosure that has signs, saying gun free zone no armed police are allowed??? Only the Teachers Union can come with up something that stupid.

I wondered IF I was the only one that interpreted the librarians actions that way. Local media is saying that is what "confused" the gunman and is responsible for the low body count.

I don't blame the man for running away - Col. Cooper is credited for saying, "Armed men kill unarmed ones with monotonous regularity." But are we going to hang a medal on him ?

Personally, I think it would have been easier to face the gunman than to live w the knowledge that he left an innocent girl to face the wrath of a pissed off teenager. The Kid went there to kill him after all and no one seems to want to know why?

Did the "resource officer" face the teenager down or did the kid just decide to end his life after shooting the girl ? He was armed for a fight but decided not after shooting an innocent victim. Killer w a conscience ? Or just a coward ? More questions than answers and media is giving it's usual spin.

Yes and John Wilkes Booth was cleaning his pistol when Lincoln was shot?

One thing that I noticed is that Fow News mentioned nothing about a Resource Officer involved anywhere in the incident. As a reader, I was led to believe that the shooter went in looking for a specific target but the girl intervened and was shot and then the shooter took himself out. The article also stated that the shooter had 125 rounds and 4 Molotov Cocktails and that one of those were deployed.

It was mentioned in another post about the media giving recognition to these nut bags. The media should not ever give the name(s) of the shooters nor identify the weapons used and they should not release the name(s) of the victims without permission. They should just simply state what happened and the end result. The media should stop giving 15 minutes of fame to the nut bags that do these things.
