And What About Next Time?
Three plots to carry out Columbine-style massacres have been thwarted in the last few days:
1. Five high school students arrested in Riverton, Kansas.
2. Six middle schoolers near Fairbanks, Alaska.
3. A 16-year-old high school student in Puyallup, Washington, who allegedly wanted "to finally go out in a blaze of hatred and fury," was arrested just the other day.
Without a doubt the uncovering of these alleged plots has saved lives. But what about next time? Having safe schools should be a national priority.
No child should ever go to school in fear of his or her personal safety.
