My 2¢

Everywhere you go people are talking about the Virginia Tech shooting.

I’ll make mine short:
In the same situation as any involved (police, campus security, college leadership), I cannot with great confidence say I would have reacted any differently. Nor can you, I'd wager. Sitting back and “Monday Quarterbacking” or judging in hindsight is nearly as vicious as the attack. No one involved acted in a way intended to cause further injury or malice.

Lastly, to those that would demand tighter and more gun control;
“If guns kill people, pencils write miss-spelled words”

The reason I stopped watching the news about the shooting...I was tired of playing dodge ball with the band wagoneers.

I agree. There is nothing I would have done different that I know of based on what I know/have been trained to do. Why try to decipher the truth from a mess that the media has made - just gives me a headache.

Thanks guys!

It is nice to know I'm not alone in these thoughts.

And, Welcome Ralphd00d! Thanks for stoppeint by!

To me tighter gun control is comparible to the "zero tolerance policy" adopted by most schools...They both punish the victims & have little or no effect on the criminals/bullies.

Monday quarterbacking in situations like this is useless and pointless. The human brain can only process so much.
