    Another School Shooting

    Here, in the Cleveland area. One dead, the rest in serious to stable condition.

    CHARDON, Ohio - The chilling actions of a teenager as he systematically shot Chardon High School students sitting at a cafeteria table were captured by surveillance video at Chardon High School, which also showed the chaos afterward.According to a source who viewed the video, the student identified by fellow students as T.J. Lane -- sat down by himself at a table in the cafeteria around 7:30 a.m. Within moments he reached into a pack or a bag. He pulled out a .22-caliber handgun.Lane walked around his table and stood behind students identified by classmates as Russell King, Demetrius Hewlin and Nick Walczak, all juniors and friends. Russell and Nick were waiting there before catching a bus to Auburn Career Center.The video shows Lane raising his gun and shooting, the source said. Russell, who students say was shot in the back, is at MetroHealth Medical Center. Demetrius, who students say was shot in the back of the head, is also at MetroHealth. Nick, who was shot numerous times, is in stable condition at Hillcrest Hospital.

    I don't understand. In my day, the worst I worries about were knives. What happens to make a HS student into a mass murderer?

    How did this high school student end up with a gun in school? I'm not a huge supporter of gun control but this is absurd! How many more of our youth need to die before something happens?

    Some Cleveland area schools have metal detectors at the door. I don't know about this one. The whole thing makes me sick.....these poor families.

    Gee, I don't know-since we impose the death penalty in ohio rather frequently and this moron is going to get life without parole at least-I guess we need to pass more laws that might deter him

    the penalties against FIRST DEGREE MURDER apparently didn't deter him. Maybe making it illegal for him to have a gun will

    OH WAIT-its illegal to take a gun to school

    Honestly-the parents of the slain children should be given a full pardon by Governor Kasich, a couple sledgehammers and an hour with this mope. won't get their kids back but as they say if someone can not serve as a good role model for other people we might as well make a most horrible example out of them

    ... which is why I am for public punishment. I don't think murderers should be given the decency of a windowless room.

    Re: Another School Shooting

    You know, we don't really know much of anything at this point.

    We don't know where he got the gun, or how, or from whom.

    It does seem as if he may have TARGETED these boys specifically.... from reading I get the impression that he shot them specifically rather than just shooting at random. If that is so, one may ask..... why?

    It might have been random. It might have been some BS feud. It is possible that the victims may turn out to be bullies who had been harassing him for years, too.

    We don't know much at this point, as I said.



    But don't let that stop anyone from making snap judgements based on assumptions, of course.

    Goshin, there is no excuse for this. Is it better if it were a feud and he targeted certain kids?
