Before the shooting he was removed from class multiple times and Nikki Giovanni said that he was a bully. He was also encouraged to get counselling by Lucinda Roy, the co-director of the schools writing program. In 2005 he was accused of stalking female students but charges were never filed. Sometime between seven and eight A.M. Cho shot and killed two students in a dormitory. Between the two separate shootings Cho mailed a package to NBC News.
Students said that the shooting began where the English and writing classes were located. It was said that Harper entered the classroom and fired a warning shot. Some witnesses said that before he opened fire on the other students, he let a student live so that he could give a message to the police. Harper forced this student to sit in the back of the classroom and watch as he shot the rest of his classmates. The Umpqua Community College shooting took place on October 1, 2015 at Roseburg, Oregon.
Along with that they force kids to join by threatening or holding their loved ones captive in order to persuade them to cooperate. Though these tactics are extreme they have proved highly effective, causing over 10 million kids to be recruited between both groups. Not only that but these groups used specialized training to make the members feel less guilt and remorse for the terrible deeds they are forced to commit.
How are you going to protect your students. You have to protect your students somehow. Having guns in our school would be much safe of course with training with guns. If a teacher has the proper training absolutely they should be allowed to carry it. They are our first line of defense and would be able to react much faster than any police officer who isn't on scene.
School shootings have became a big problem in the United States and something needs to be done to stop them from happening. Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida was just a normal high school. It had over 3,000 students 9-12th grade. On the afternoon of February 14, 2018, a shooter pulled the fire alarm and threw smoke bombs before he made his way through the school campus and started shooting as people began running through the smoke. When he pulled the fire alarms, everyone thought there was a fire so they were trying to get out.
In the report by (Borum, Cornell, Modzeleski, & Jimerson, 2010), revenge as a cause for school shootings is mentioned and other studies too have shown that students who commit mass murder in schools are often bullied and suffer from rejection in school (Leary, Kowalski, Smith, & Phillips, 2003). In schools there are often a group of popular people who are extroverted and often participate in social events, are well known by others for their charismatic personalities and often good looks. Some students struggle to ‘fit in’ into the school community due to maybe a lack of social skills or lack of confidence. These students are often bullied and teased at school in front of others, therefore suffer from severe rejection and public humiliation (Leary, Kowalski, Smith, & Phillips, 2003). These cases show actual rejection however some students who are more introverted and spend more time alone may feel rejected by other students even if this is not necessarily the case and they are simply withdrawing themselves from the school
In Florida, the School shooting took place on Feb 14 2018. At Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school Nikolas Cruz a 19 year old man, set off fire alarms to get kids to run in the hallways so he could open fire on the students with an AR-15 assault rifle. In addition, Cruz noxiously killed 17 people and injured over a dozen others. To escape, he dropped his weapon and blended in with the crowd of students, although, Cruz was later captured in Coral Springs at 3:41 p.m.(Farber, "Florida School Shooting Timeline"). Since the 2012 school shooting at Sandy Hook there has been 142 school shootings in America.
There 's been situations where teenagers argued over video games, over basketball games or in a situation in which someone is forcing you to go to school rather than just dropping out just to rap. Altercations only leaves negative impact on people 's lives such as emotional scaring, injured physically and even demise. Everyone who is human undergo emotional scaring even if it 's just from fear. The death of people caused emotional scaring to almost everyone in the world but more importantly to family members. In the story by Brent Staples he wrote “A senseless rivalry - beginning, I think, with an argument over a girlfriend - escalated from posturing, to threats, to violence, to murder,”his brother was murder and he felt a part of him leave.
Both of them affect almost everything kids in middle school do. Bullying is repeated harm directed toward weaker targets and peer pressure is when students friends pressure them into doing something they aren’t supposed to. 30-50% of middle and high schoolers are bullied. The reason why so many kids are bullied are because the bullies might of been bullied and want to bully someone else, their parents
“On October 31, 2016, North High School was shut down. Four students were shot and killed by an unidentified suspect. Lea Brown, Aaron Mills, Caleb Lee and Jen Hills passed away Monday afternoon when a middle-aged man opened fire at North High School. All four victims’ blood was splattered across multiple walls. Unfortunately, the suspect remains unknown, and officials are still searching for the missing bodies.
Hundreds of years later, cases such as these happen all too frequently. In May 21st, 1998, Springfield, Oregon was struck with the news of a school shooting at Thurston High School. 15 year old, Kip Kinkel, first killed his parents at home before driving to school where he fatally shot two students, and wounded 22 others. Littleton, Colorado, on April 20th, 1999, was once the most fatal attack on a school. 18 year old, Eric Harris, and Dylan Klebold, 17, planned out their attack for a year, to kill at least 500 peers, and detonate the school.
These games can cause people to think killing other people is acceptable. Also, media coverage on the news can show some very gruesome violence that occurs across the globe. This kind of brutality can give people bad ideas. "Although the video game industry and any of its fans maintain otherwise, studies suggest that, as with violent movies and television programs, a connection likely exists between brutality in games and real-life aggression", according to Paul Keegan from the New York Times. With video games becoming super popular, many experts think that the most realistic video games are getting the most violent students are becoming.
Removal of the violence in video games is also another possible solution for school shootings. The two teenage shooters involved in the 1999 Columbine High School shooting are said to have been involved with playing violent video games, which is stated in the article “Violent Video Games - ProCon.org.” People think that since there are violent acts in these video games, the children that play them will act out on them and try to recreate them. Researchers at the University of Missouri conducted a study to see how a group a people’s brains were affected by violent and nonviolent video games. After twenty-five minutes of playing these games the researchers showed the group of people different images. Some of these images were violent and others were not.
So, honestly, the public needs to research and look into the positive and negative interests of carrying handguns onto public school campuses before they jump to indecisive conclusions. It is still my opinion that if people know that it is a gun free environment then it makes it more susceptible to the people that want to create havoc and do harm to others. With teachers and school administration being licensed carriers; then, it makes the schools a safer place because the people trying to do harm will think twice about it since there is the possibility that someone could be shooting back at them. So, evildoers, you might want to be a little more careful when picking out a school to take advantage of or do harm to because when you are looking down your barrel at a schoolmate or teacher there might just be a teacher or administrator looking down their barrel at
Causing generalizations and myths about the causes for such terrible acts. Most suppositions about the culprits aren 't correct and a number of the warning signs go unnoticed. The events of school shooters has vastly expanded in scope and size from Langman 's earlier book, Why Kids Kill: Inside the Minds of School Shooters. In this new book School Shooters: Understanding High school, College, and
