The greatest tragedy here is that people died and the media is more intent on making it a circus so they can have rating than on actually reporting news. That they are blaming the police force is unconsionable. There is but one person responsible for what happened yesterday at VT and that is the gunman.
Hindsight is always 20/20 and it disgusts me that the media and others are actually agruing that based on how it turned out is proof that it was handled wrong. How can you act on information that does not exist because the act has not happened? THe cops did the right things in the right way according to the information they had. Anyone who says otherwise is just organizing a witch hunt because they want someone to blame in liue of the one responsible who put himself beyond reach of the law by taking his own life.
How can you say the police did things wrong? The police had someone in custody after the first shooting, someone they thought was the shooter. Do you keep looking for something you lost once you found it?
Or those who make decisions about whether or not the campus should remain open? Be serious people!! How many other people were shot yesterday in cities like NY or LA or Miami or Atl? Are you really going to try and tell me that for each one of those the 26000 people surrounding each of those shootings was personally contacted by email and phone?? Can you honestly tell me that for each and every shooting that happened yesterday that an areas equally as large as the full campus of Va Tech was totally and completely shut down, no on ein and no one out and with absolute knowledge that everyone in each shut down area was 100% safe?
If you really believe that then I pity you. Here is a quarter, use it to buy a clue.
Innocent people are dead. Parents have lost childern. That is all that is important right now. This is not a time of agendas and witch hunts. This sure as hell is not a time for sensationalism for the sake of ratings.
We should all be mourning the lives lost.
