In Response to Re: ANOTHER SCHOOL SHOOTING:
ditto to all that this is over now the second guy went to a hospital for treatment and they have now picked him up lone star is a sort of municipal / county / regional trade school/junior college w/ several campuses and 170,000 students in 40 yrs this was their first gun incident they have ent training classes there and a 170 man police force and were on scene in like 2 mins their chancellor just stated that they had just completed three seminars for faculty and others and, while he was aware of the other incidents and everything coming about gun control he never dreamed they would become part of the conversation actually there was 3 people shot the two in the original altercation and a maintainance employee of the school none serious and one other female student had medical complications and also had to go to hospital is it good news that it was nothing more than an altercation that; if it had taken place down the street would only have brought a couple off cops and an ambulance? this incident caused a lockdown of this school and massive police prescence and no one knows the cost to individuals down the road they also locked down 4 public schools in the vicinity and all those kids and parents also suffered harm and disruption in their lives and somebody please add up all the man-hours and figure out how much this costs us all in the long run

And ditto to adding up all the time and cost. Seems like we end up paying for the "crazies" out there and paying for the "crazies" in jail and seems like things are just getting more crazy. Do you think that it's perhaps, in some small part, due to the fact that life was easier on some of these younger kids than it was many years ago to us? We learned about chores, patience, honesty, respect for ourselves and others, "making do" with what we had if possible & the list goes on.
