Excuse Me While I Rant

I know all the facts are not in yet on the horrendous shooting
at Virginia Tech but could somebody please explain to me how two hours passed between shooting number one and shooting number two without somebody enforcing a campus lockdown??!!
They apparently sent an email. An email??!
This is sickening.
Prayers and thoughts are with them.

Very sad incident. Maybe America needs to rethink its gun laws. There seem to be too many mass shootings these days.

I just don't get it myself. And what I don't get even more is that while watching "The Today Show" this morning, one girl said that she read the email about the shooting and went to class anyway. She went to class anyway!!! Someone please explain that to me!!!

Friends - It is really unspeakable. I can't imagine what those parents must be enduring. How would you ever get over it?

Mimi Lenox said...

Linda - She went to class ANYway?
Sounds like a milktoast email.
That's scary.

Linda said...

Apparently it said that there had been a shooting earlier on part of the campus and to "use caution". I agree with the comment you let over on Gem's page that a lockdown should have been immediately implemented.

We had three males in front of our local hospital today and one was armed with a gun and the hospital immediately went into lockdown for the safety of patients and employees even though the suspects had reportedly fled away from the area.

The world is becoming a very scary place - very scary.

That was my question too, Mimi. I just can't understand how he got away with the first killings, and no-one picked him up, with all the security around too!

It was totally tragic! :-(

Unbelievable.

That is something the administration is going to have to deal with for a long time.

Gunshot? LOCK YOUOR DOORS...stay inside..

Security cars with bullhorns... DO NOT LEAVE WHERE YOU ARE - DO NOT MOVE...

Seems so simple now, doesn't it?

Mimi Lenox said...

Bond - Yes, a simple procedure with a practiced plan of action could have saved a lot of lives.
