They told us initially that the kid fired just three rounds in total. But there were more; perhaps many more:
Fifteen-year-old sophomore Sam Hengel arrived for his sixth-period social studies class at Marinette High School at 1:30 p.m. Monday. ..... The students were watching a movie... when Hengel shot at a projector and then fired another round near Burd, a 39-year-old teacher...
Parents began to worry, and a father came to the school looking for his daughter, who had not responded to several calls. As principal Corry Lambie began searching the halls, he looked inside Burd's classroom at about 3:45 p.m. and saw a student and a handgun, he said. Lambie then called police at 3:48 p.m., about two hours from the time Hengel retrieved the guns. Police said at 8:03 p.m. the gunman became agitated for an unknown reason and fired rounds into the wall and other objects.
That's when authorities breached the door to rescue hostages and take Hengel into custody. Officials said as students were rescued, Hengel shot himself in the head.


It took them TWO HOURS to figure out there was a hostage crisis going on in that school, and they had to be notified that something was wrong by a parent who wasn't even there???

If the students were there when the kid shot himself, why haven't any of them confirmed the suicide scenario in published interviews?

One more thing:

"The boy.... was dressed in his favorite Tom-and-Jerry T-shirt and blue jeans."

I don't think he went to school in Wisconsin in late November with just a t-shirt. Was he wearing a long black trenchcoat as an outer garment?

There are plenty of holes in this story the biggest to me is that the kid shot himself. Police officers hear shots go off they don't go in and ask questions, I believe this boy was shot most likely and the force is trying to cover it up to get rid of any backlash.

The Feds have moved into this case in a big way, which is another sign of the covert op: inee-Mich-
The School District of Marinette wants to express its appreciation to the many individuals and agencies who responded this week:
...  Federal Bureau of Investigation  ....
During 10 minutes in front of the camera, (District Attorney Allen)Brey appeared confrontational. And — in hope of dispelling any conspiracy theories, he later said — he immediately defended the work of the various agencies that responded.
... Brey, however, isn't the only person looking into the incident. He said a U.S. attorney in Milwaukee will look at his work and determine independently if he followed proper protocol.
In the wake of tragedy, the Marinette School District could be eligible for thousands of dollars in grant money through the federal School Emergency Response to Violence program.

That school was apparently suffused with lessons in death and violence before the shooting. And people always ask 'why?'
".... Sam asked him about the book Columbine. Sam knew Frank was reading the book a year ago, and they had discussed it then a little." (Undoubtedly this was a school assignment.)

"The police and emergency vehicles that flooded the school grounds may have put students in mind of the "Every 15 Minutes" program held just three weeks earlier. The drunk driving safety event included a mock car wreck, police cruisers, rescue personnel. Chilling only in retrospect, the exercise included a costumed Grim Reaper who entered classrooms every quarter hour to "kill" a student. The "dead" students spent the night at a local hotel to create a feeling of loss. The next day, assembled students listened to parents speak of their "dead" child. ..."

And here are details of a ''drill'' that was conducted just months earlier:

"Through an open records request, The Awl obtained a copy of the "Marinette Co. School Shooting Exercise Plan" carried out on Aug. 27, 2009. The "Scenario Summary" of the report on the training exercise states:
"Time: 0830 hrs Marinette High School is preparing for the new school year and all High School staff and school administrative personnel are on campus for in-service meetings and classroom preparation. At approx 0830 hrs masked gunmen storm the campus firing rifles and small arms. Several people are shot in the area of the main entrance to the High School. The gunmen start firing at anyone they encounter and begin searching the building for victims." .... Marinette County Emergency Management Director Eric Burmeister told me that the place Hengel chose, room A111, was noteworthy as this "A-area" was the same place police and emergency services had staged its mock shooter exercise.

And now it appears others might have been peripherally involved:
Eight days after 15-year-old Sam Hengel held a Marinette High School classroom at gunpoint and shot himself, the school board met in closed session. Prior to Tuesday night's closed door session Superintendent Tim Baneck and School Board President Scott Vande Hei briefed the EagleHerald about the focus of the meeting.
"We'll be looking at some confidential information regarding the student, or students, involved in the incident last Monday," said Baneck. Vande Hei said the board would limit discussion to just that. "We're getting briefed on information directly related to students that would have been involved," he said. .....
