    They interviewed a kid who was friends with the shooter and apparently the shooter was saying he was going to do this all weekend, even trying to enlist his friends to help him. Then when they'd say he was nuts, the shooter would just say "I'm only kidding".

    The funny thing is, when this kid was telling this story, I kept thinking he should shut up and get a lawyer, odd as that sounds. Having been aware of this in advance, even though he didn't believe it, this kid is going to face some tough questions.

    It's just a fad now to have school shootings. It's just like people trying to assassinate every president we get. Just a bunch of morons trying to get their names in the news. 10 wounded, but those weren't serious. 1 is dead and 1 in critical condition. I'm ashamed to be a youth while these morons are.

    Glenn.. I was thinking the same thing when that kid was talking. They just had some older guy on who also knew that the shooter was talking about it over the weekend. sounds like a lot of people (kids and adults) knew that this kid was talking about shooting it up at the school.
    guess Columbine didnt teach them anything.

    Very sad indeed

    One thing. Asking "Where did we go wrong?" is like saying the blame should fall on these kids' parents. I don't think that's right. I think each person is resonsible for his or her own actions.

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Parents HAVE to take some responsibility. They are supposed to be the people who guide you and teach you right from wrong.

    I hear this kid is in grade 9, so I guess he'd be around 14 years of age. At that age, the parents still have a responsibility for his actions. If parents have no responsibility, why don't they just teach us to walk and then kick us out of the house; responsibility doesn't end when your kid is that young (14).

    Lead.. The kid is 14. He got the guns from his dad.
    When I asked the question "where did we go wrong" I mean sociaty as a whole. As parents and poeple in a community we have a resposibilty to these kids, to teach them right from wrong.
    Yes, ADULTS are responsible for their own actions. This is a lost kid, said to be picked on by other kids (seems to be the common thread with school shooters). America needs to take better care of our youth.

    This is a very sad day indeed. Santana High School is only about 10 miles away from where I live.

    I was sitting in class without a worry in the world, and 10 miles away, kids and adults are being shot to death. I am very sad now. My prayers to the families and friends of the victims. My heart goes out to you.

    Glenn You are so right on!!! You have kids??<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>No I don't. I'm a bit embarressed to say that because I'm certainly not trying to come off as an expert about parenting, since I'm not one myself.

    My wife and I don't want to have kids, even though we've found that telling people that makes them think we are just trying to hold onto our youth.

    Anyway, I don't think it takes a parent to realize that when your kids are 14, and facing the kind of pressures that face all kids at that age, the parents have a responsibility to help kids shape their values.

    I do agree that it's a bit early in the game to be totally blaming this kids parents, but they will have to face some tough questions and some of the responsibility will fall on them.

    Two students are now being reported as dead. I can't even begin to imagine the horror that the parents of those kids will face today, tomorrow and forever. You don't send your kid to school to face this kind of violence.

    The sickest thing is how easy it often seems to be to shoot completely innocent kids...
    Not knowing the details but I'm sure the shooter didn't have ANYTHING personal against most of the victims.

    Still they got shot...
    SICK, SICK, SICK!!!!!!

    That's absolutely terrible.

    It's absolutely awful that schools are quickly becoming fields of bullets rather than safe havens for learning.
