Should have been there, you mean they should have had a team of SWAT officers in Norris Hall that morning just in case someone brought a gun to class that day in particular? The police did everything right this time, and those who were huddling behind trees, they were helping to escort students out of the other buildings (ever hear of cover fire?) and they weren't the ones who were probably in Norris Hall at that very moment looking for the shooter and helping to evacuate the buildings, the camera's weren't allowed to get that close to the shooting.

Ordinary police come in after first call, figure its a domestic violence case, and start investigating. More shots are fired at Norris Hall, SWAT is called in. SWAT gets there reasonably fast, and crisis is reduced. I never saw more than squad cars pulling up...Course, by the time SWAT had gotten there, if the response time reflected the entire police dept. then the shooter would have killed himself by that time anyway.

There were SWAT from four different agencies on the scene.

SWAT is not a 24/7 military unit on standby. SWAT is something that must be called out. Not all SWAT officer sit in the stateion in full gear. Never happens.... most are regular full time officers and detectives that get called over the radio or from home or cell and are called out to the scene. Once there they get a briefing.

Hence why most PDs in South Florida are big supporters of RAT (Rapid Action Tactics)

Secondly.... You saw stock video footage from the shooting. The press only showed you something like 30 seconds of police action. You were not there, you do not know how many officers were on scene.

Either way, this is an entirely seperate argument from the idea that if at least teachers and other staff were allowed to concealed carry, then the incident would have at the very least been much less catastrophic.

Henderson, teachers and professors are overwhelmingly liberal (statistics back up my claim). What makes you think that if the staff had been allowed to carry weapons any of them actually would have?

*shrug* I don't know. Maybe none of them would even if they could...But campus police would then be allowed to as well...And you can bet your ass they'd have some heat.

Henderson, what year are you in high school? Have you even visited a college campus yet?

Why was he able to purchase a firearm? Why did he have them on campus?

All of the above questions are answered with infractions/violations or more simply breaking the laws.

He was involuntarily admitted to a mental facility because of his actions in 2005, yet 30 days prior (est. to the incident) he purchased a 9mm Glock, against current federal gun control laws. Having his weapon on campus was against current VA state law. He broke federal and state laws, those laws did not stop what happened.

What I would like to know is why people think making something against the "law" well solve anything? History itself has proven that wrong far more than Freud has been debunked!

His name is God, not Invisible Guy. He's not live in sky. He's in HEAVEN. For your correction. Dismissed.
