Yesterday a parents worst nightmare took place.
At approximately 7:15 AM ET, a young 23 year old college student shot and killed
2 other students.
Two hours later he methodically killed 30 more, before taking his own life.
After hearing all of the stories about the young student who was the shooter, it has become obvious to me,that he was suffering from some kind of psychosis.
Even his roommate has said he acted strangely.
Teachers noticed this complexity and
one of them who worked with him one on one suggested he get counseling.
What is wrong with this picture?
Did they follow up, or contact family to discuss his strange behavior?
On a campus this large especially, they need someone who can recognize mental illness.
Or it will be happening again soon.
With the large number of military coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan, who will be enrolling in college's all around this country, they better come up with some kind of plan to identify, psychosis, panic disorders, anxiety and other forms of mental Illness.
Because the gun lobby with all of their money will never allow any decent form of Gun Control to take place in this country.
No one wants to take away some ones right to hunt, but no one will ever convince me that any one other then a Police Officer needs an automatic weapon.
If this sick young person would have had to stop and reload his gun, just maybe some of those lives would have been saved.
