Reports claim a school hostage situation started at about 11:30 am (mountain time) at Platte County High School in Colorado. The situation is over. The gunman is dead. One female hostage has been transported to a near buy hospital. She is in critical condition. Reports also claiming two shots were fired and a bomb did infact go off. This is a very scary situation and it does bring up memories of Columbine High School.

This is a terible thing , as with all school shooting''s bombings, ETC . But we have to be grateful that noone else was hurt, unlike comlibine.

Crap, you were there?

And all of this after the college shooting in Canada. I can understand why school shooting happen but college shootings? It'd have to be over grades and not social problems as with normal school (in my opinion).

I think what they need to do to solve so many problems in schools is to install metal detectors, X-rays, etc in all schools, and make in mandatory for kids to have see through backpacks (This is not infringing on rights at all, if you have tinted windows on a car they must be see through so that a guy can't pull a gun on a cop so easily).

Making kids go out and buy new backpacks? You can tuck stuff between books too.

Plus, it is the law that passing through an x-ray device or metal detector must be done so in a willing matter. Beings that it is the law to also go to school, a student would be required by law to pass through the detectors therefore contradicting the law saying it must be done in a willful way. It would never work.

If I refuse to go to a detector at an airport or goverment facility (I go threw them often because I fly every 2 months and occasionaly go to the Pentagon with my dad) I would be apprehended and interigated for several hours. If it isn't willing at an airport than it doesn't have to be at a school. Besides, this is public safety and a gun would have a hard time fitting between books (And bombs would be very hard to make to fit in such a space).

I hope the Police don't hold back. Columbine was a mess because they just waited.

Turn around go home. In that aspect it is willing.

Military is different because the only rights you have are the ones your CO says you have. (for the most part)

The situation is resolved. They shot the man, the hostages were rescued (One is in critical condition though), and their was no bomb.

All 40 miles from Columbine (The cops from the town where Columbine was came to help out in this hostage situation).
