So the generation behind the ’90s school shootings is in college now, and the shootings have moved to college as well. I can’t begin to make sense of this.
“The first shooting occurred at 7:15 a.m. in West Ambler Johnston. Twenty of the fatalities occurred in Norris Hall, which happened approximately two hours later.” (from the the site Sarah just gave)
Why wasn’t the person caught after the first one? Why did more die TWO HOURS later?
Yeah we’re all really shocked by the recent shootings at Virginia Tech. We don’t know if the immediate response by the administration was sufficient to contain the threat, and it’s unclear what exactly motivated the killer. Now all we can do is mourn for the victims…
