    Although that is a great idea that would be costly to the tax payer

    I'm glad that the shooter is still alive. It always gets me when they kill themselves because we can't talk to them to find out the motives and get to the causes of their actions. People like this need to be studied so we can get a better handle on how to prevent more shootings like this.

    Regardless, this stuff always makes me sad. It makes me sad that kids who had futures and friends and families and plans just die in 1 second because someone decided to take out their anger with extreme violence. All it takes is 1 second for everything to just be gone. But even with the victims in mind, I'm still sad for the shooters for the life they lost and for the fact that their contribution to this world was pain and destruction. It's an all around sick situation and I hope this kid can help (willingly or unwillingly) us understand how to prevent more from happening.

    Oh, we already got calls for his execution by baseball bat.... but we don't know what his motives were, or whether there are any mitigating circumstances.

    Sure, I understand the visceral, first-gut-reaction thing.... I do it too sometimes.... I'm just saying that we don't know much of anything at this point.

    Studying "people like this" won't prevent anything. Nutcases just happen to pop off every once in awhile, and you don't typically see it coming until after the fact, when someone says "hmmm- I thought he was acting a little strange lately".........

    Well, there is at least some possibility we might find out what his motive was... which might tell us something.

    I didn't say that that would solve the problem or necessarily make it hard. I said it was a great idea, yes.

    It couldn't have been too hard since this kid did it and several others have recently. Banks aren't successfully robbed often. Why? Because it's hard to do it.

    the most violent ones often do. of course in really tough schools there aren't many massacres

    do you know why? because the second some whining loser who is mad that he wasn't elected Homecoming Queen or Prom Princess pulls a gun he stole from his dad's trunk or office drawer, ten kids are going to shank, shiv or nunchuck his sorry ass to death

    This NEVER happened until Columbine. Now it's like a virus, spreading everywhere.

    It will tell us something about him, the individual. It will tell us what was making him tick and making his timed bomb go off. It won't tell us what the kid in the next county is thinking when he becomes irrational and ready to blow a fuse.
