Now none of this can be confirmed obviously, but odds are it is a good start.
The assailants of school shootings almost always fit the stereotypical profile. Brilliant from birth, but not socially accepted. Good marks leave
the parents at ease for much of their childhood, and most times do not pick up on the bullying their child may be suffering while at school. As these
troubled teens get picked on, they seclude themselves in their on realities of hatred.
At some point something has to give, and the sad truth is it often results in a violent act towards their peers. Columbine can not be forgotten, the
lives that we lost have to mean something and we have to learn from our mistakes.
How can you prevent these school shootings? Start with the schoolyard bullies in grade school. Organize something for the students who are not
socially accepted, do not allow themselves to only surround themselves with books. Social interaction is just as important as passing the next
Now in the end of all this, the individual is solely to blame. They pulled the trigger, they are guilty. However, along the way the teachers,
parents & school mates can all take some responsibility and say they could of done alittle something to prevent it.
It will be interesting to see how this one plays out. To see if Gill, the self proclaimed Angel of Death, will fit the profile.
My condolences go out to all the victims and their families. May they Rest in Peace.
