Rest in Peace

10 years ago,Monday April 20th 1999

Two gunmen shot up Columbine High School in Colorado.

12 students and 1 teacher died.

The shooters committed suicide about an hour later.


---------------------------------------------------------------

Here's the thing.

I grew up with guns and a love of the military(grandfather was a WWII vet,father was in ROTC,uncle was in the Army,cousin was in the Navy) and I've played more than my fair share of violent/bloody video games..but despite that..I've never thought of shooting up a school or a public place.
After reading the wikipedia article on Columbine Shooting..I arrive at a couple of conclusions..

1.Why didn't the cops go in the building sooner? Same with the SWAT team.
As I recall..they showed on TV..SWAT cops standing around while the shooting was going on..Apparently they didn't want to save lives?? I mean isn't that WHY they wear the heavier body armor,have the assault rifles and shotguns that the patrol officers don't? Not to mention the expensive training?

I'm an ordinary citizen (don't even have a pistol..only a few rifles and those are WW2 era) and I would have ran in to try and save lives..

I just don't get the mentality of the shooters and the responders..

an update

Volcano is still active...however it's been downgraded status-wise.

"Beat" Saint's Row 2..but techinically I haven't completed it to 100% because of all the activities/diversions..

Other games I have to finish..

Getting paid for a computer power supply tomorrow..Fixed a computer for an old friend and in the process sold him my LCD monitor. It's fun when you go from a CRT monitor (big,heavy and a good source of heat) to a LCD monitor (screen size is same,monitor footprint is smaller,produces lesser heat and it looks better)

Lermontov's idea of a "tanker"

eathquakes,volcanoes oh my....

An earthquake of magnitude 4.6 earthquake shook Southcentral Alaska at midday today, originating about 15 miles southwest of Wasilla, according to initial reports from the Alaska Earthquake Information Center.

So not only is there a active volcano spewing out ash and steam..now there are earthquakes..

End of the world?
