    This was at one of my neighboring towns. :c

    Luckily he was a bad shot, he shot into a crowd of kids running away and missed before he was talked down. (He did hit one person though, who was in critical condition)

    Christ, if you're going to make a joke about this situation, at least try.

    Something like, "I'm just glad that teacher was there to lesson the carnage!" might be in poor taste, but at least it demonstrates some modicum of effort.

    I read something that would be consistent with that ... apparently he named the particular individual he intended to kill while the teacher was talking to him. Once he knew he'd never get to shoot that person, I guess he realized he was done.


    One thing I did find interesting in this incident that you probably won't hear a lot about -- this particular school does have an armed sheriff's deputy assigned full-time to the campus. He/she is there before school starts, all during the day, and after school as well. Although the shooter was 'talked down' by his teacher, I did notice during the law enforcement press conference that their officer's response time to the scene was one minute. At Sandy Hook, as you've probably already heard, it was 20 minutes.

    I find it ironically inappropriate that the sheriff's name is Youngblood.

    A lot of the news in this section isn't about gaming (this might lead to tougher laws against games though it is unlikely)though having a gaming user submitted news and a regular one could help with that.

    It's ten times better than the shit you usually post. You know, your informative reports are far and few in-between. You should fix that before you talk jack all about these posts... As for the situation, I'm glad they talked the kid down and that no one had been killed. I sympathize with the poor guy, but shooting someone is not the answer. At least challenge him to fisticuffs and settle it like high schoolers.

    Because any piece a highly volatile subject matter that puts the moderating staff on 'Red Alert' simply HAS to get a thread no matter how relevant/irrelevant to the site it may be. It's the law.
