I didn't know that, I think that information wasn't out when I posted that message.

But, yeah, that's bad. 4 armed and trained people, should have been able to take him down.

I am annoyed about this. The way american's say they need 'good guy's with guns'- they had 4 of them and they didn't do anything.

This isn't the wild west. Having a gun doesn't make you 'the right guy'.

They wouldn't have wanted to go in, because they would of heard automatic fire and they probably thought 'I'm not going in there'.

The fact that the police were screaming at the kids to get back in the building, shows some real cowardly fear IMO. They were more concerned with:

a) looking like they were doing something (the bare minimum)
b) absolutely petrified of the situation and willing to allow unarmed students to die, rather than try and safeguard them

These are the kind of guys who would have posed for photographs in their uniforms, but crunch time showed they had no business being in the job.

I do think there is a problem with how guns are idolized in such a fashion. It is a major problem really.

Not saying what happened here was good, I am not sure I have been keeping up on the details of these cases. But it is a problem. It is not for sure that one guy could have made a difference anyway (maybe but could havej ust been shot too), but it is their job to go in there and try.

I am honestly not sure what the standard protocol for police is with this regard. Are they to go in alone, wait for backup? I imagine those are in place to increase the probability that the shooter is stopped.

But this does not look good at all.
