It does make sense that an investigation or inquiry over any such potentially deadly incident be made before determining what's what and whose whom.
It kind of makes sense to give everyone involved a day or two off while the police investigate.
I can see how the principal might do that, instead of going on the hearsay of initial reports from eyewitnesses, and saying (with no police
investigation) you, you are the hero and you and you, and that guy there he's suspended for trying to KILL that person - take him away, the rest of
you gather at the awards ceremony on Friday for your heroic actions, now back to class...
Think about it. It's just a temporary emergency measure, while the incident is investigated, that's all, no biggie, just a day or two off while the
police handle it then give the hero award and send the right signal.
That's what I would have done. Same thing this principal did. It's just being SPUN the wrong way that's all.
But good on them for grabbing the gunman and tackling him, yes, it was the right thing to do, but as another poster pointed out, it always depends on
the nuances of the actual situation, but more often than not there's a chance and an opportunity to tackle without getting killed when a shooter is
surrounded with people.
