The school shooting at Chardon High School in Ohio, once again has a nation stunned. How many tragedies need to happen before they protect the children? Grief Counselors were sent to the school today, to help students grieve for their friends. But can the school system do more?
There are tight government regulations on pretty much everything we do now…why don’t they require schools to add metal detector’s at every front entrance? We get fined for more things than I can keep up with, why has it taken so long to provide security for our school children? How many more shootings need to happen in our schools before they take action?
Three vibrant young men, Russell King, Demetrius Howlin and Daniel Parmertor were killed, and two others were shot in this senseless rampage. What a tragic and unnecessary chain of events…and for what? For an obviously disturbed and angry student (Lane), who stole his uncles gun, to retaliate against innocent victims.
Unfortunately, in this sick world we live in…no school should be immune to having a metal detector at the front door. They need to take some of that lottery money, designed to help the school system, and use it to install one at each entry. Students should never have to be fearful to go to the supposedly “safe” environment of a classroom.
Mr. Obama and other politicians, what are you going to do to help? Please, let’s not have so many lost lives be in vain.
