The Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting was one that shocked the nation and opened the eyes of Americans everywhere. This horrible event opened up our eyes to the fact that someone could easily come into a school and raise havoc with ease. This man, Adam Lanza, had no affiliation with Sandy Hook or any one inside it but still decided to take the lives of 20 children and 6 adults before taking his own. In the statements made by Joe Scarborough from his show “Morning Joe”, he says “Every American must know from this day forward that nothing can be the same again.” This is a very powerful statement because it brings up an important point. It shows that we cannot change what has already happened, but we can use these horrific events as a learning
He killed twelve people and wounded another 58.But just a few weeks later, another American community faced the unimaginable grief that cities like Tucson and Aurora knew too well. In Oak Creek, Wisconsin, a shooting in a Sikh temple left six people dead and four more wounded. Despite witnessing these tragedies again and again and again, nothing could have steeled the nation for what would happen in Newtown, Connecticut. On December 14, 2012, the day had just begun at Sandy Hook Elementary when a man broke into the school and started shooting. Within minutes, twenty of Sandy Hook’s first graders – 6 and 7 year olds – were killed in their classrooms.
There were about 18 pronounced dead at the school shooting, and they did not pick to be hunted. Zaroff murdered a lot of innocent people to, and they did not choose to be hunted either. The students and staff who suffered from this horrific encounter did not want to be hunted nor did they choose too. The hunter can pick and choose whom he/she wants to hunt, yet the hunted does not get to choose whom they are being hunted by. A school shooting relates to "The Most Dangerous Game" because like Zaroff, the shooter picked what school he wanted to take advantage of, and Zaroff chose to take advantage of the ship-wreak
Psychology behind Connecticut school shooting The Sandy Hook shooting in Connecticut is one of the most devastating mass shootings that has occurred in the US. Adam Lanza is the man who massacred 20 children and 6 adults after committing matricide following up with his suicide, with a semi-automatic rifle. Police have announced that Adam had been diagnosed with Asperger 's a form of autism, as well as prior issues with being bullied during elementary schooling. Parents have been left devastated and the rest baffled at Adam 's spontaneous behavior. If I were a psychologist I would first looks at Adam 's childhood, which fortunately the police report points out, which points to me that a more behavioral and cognitive
For example, this January, a boy named”....Hayden Porter, a 15-year-old freshman at a high school in Ohio, took his life”(https://www.cnn.com/2018/01/16/health/ohio-suicide-cluster/index.html). This is very selfish because killing oneself is so wrong and so heartbreaking for everyone that loves him/her. In his defence, he killed himself probably from bullying from other people, hence proving another reason why people are terrible at heart, but that should not give anyone the right to take their and only life away from themself.In another example, in the Diary of Anne
There were fights, vandalism of property mainly in the school of “Martin Luther King Junior High School”. There teachers being laid off because the school didn 't have enough money to fund the teachers. The sewage backup, caused by the failure of two pumping stations forces officials at the high school to shut down the furnaces. Even there sports. For example there football field was missing everything.

Many student leaders have risen from this tragic event such as emma gonzalez in the movemoent towards gun reform. Sadly enough, only after this tragic event occured did people stand up and deal with the problem of gun violence.The AR-15 and similar assault style rifles should be banned from the public and mental health evalluations should rregulaly be implemented. Many political leaders arise and argue that people such as emma gonazalez should not be able to propse or argue for gun laws with little knowledge of the system and openly because of their young age, but as Noah Trevor put it, If kids are old enough to be shot they’re old enough to have an opinion about being shot. Gun violence is growing and without these regulations and differences put aside so will the
I believe the situation became so severe with three innocent students dead and so many others injured because of Boland Hall’s reputation. This specific building of on-campus housing was known for its false alarms for the fire alarms being sounded. “Essex County prosecutor Donald C. Campolo said that 18 false alarms had been turned in since September (Goldman).” These students had become so accustomed to it being a false alarm, that no one wanted to leave their rooms just to stand out in the cold in the middle of the night as they had done so many times before for false alarms, especially since according to one student, it was finals week (Goldman). After students had been rescued and pulled from the structure that had one wing completely engulfed in flames they gathered outside with one another on the front lawn, together with teachers and fire officials they began to piece together what had
Howard Barron’s corpse at the end was a shock to everyone in town that nobody predicted. This is due to the Grierson’s family social status that clouded the townspeople judgement. All those red flag indicators could not help the town people figure out what is happening in the Grierson household. On the other note, Jack Scherting’s presumption of Emily’s motive of killing Howard Barron was also shocking but not too far fetch. Jack Scherting’s idea helped me see the story in a completely different spectrum about the relationship between Emily and her father.
