    That sucks about the 4th student.

    Name and pics of the scumbag shooter are out. Another young white kid who was allegedly bullied. Now they're saying he bragged about his dad's new gun on social media; he pretended it was his.

    This just f'ing sucks. Growing up I had access at all times to shotguns and rifles we used for hunting. I was taught to respect the whole situation and never once took one out of it's case unless I was hunting with my dad. I never and still don't understand how guns are looked at as toys.

    Now they're saying that school officials met with the shooter and his parents the day before and morning of the shooting in regards to "concerning behavior."

    Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said Wednesday that the parents of the 15-year-old suspect in the school shooting that left four students dead at Oxford High School in Oxford, Michigan, met with school officials the morning of the shooting.

    "The school did have contact with the student the day before and the day of the shooting, for behavior in the classroom that they felt was concerning," Bouchard said at a news conference.
    "In fact, the parents were brought in the morning of the shooting and had a face-to-face meeting with the school," he said.

    The sheriff continued, "The content of that meeting obviously is part of the investigation, but we did not learn of that meeting, nor of the content of that meeting until after the shooting and during this investigation."

    Bouchard added that the shooting suspect "was released back into the school from the meeting."

    And no one thought to check him for a gun? With all the meeting prior, he should have been on some kind of radar.

    All depends on why they were meeting with him and his parents.

    If it was just because other students saw this kid posting on social media about his Dad’s new gun and raised concerns, the school couldn’t really have done anything.

    If it’s because the kid was making threats to other students, they should have called the cops, searched him, his locker and sent his ass home.

    Seems like there are always obvious signs. But who ever thinks it's that bad?
    But then the parents seem to 'provide' guns in the house for the deranged child. I put a lot of blame on Adam Lanza's mother for the tragedy in Newtown. He was 20 years old at the time, but she basically armed him, knowing how fucked up in the head he was.

    And what happens if they search the kid and his locker and find nothing?

    Then this gets turned into an article that gets posted in the “Shitty Progressive” thread.

    From shitty parents often come shitty kids. Usually isn't complicated. You should know when you got a fucked up kid.

    So the school was "on to" him, but it still happened. It just goes to show how hard it is to stop these guys. So many times we hear about the warning signs and how nothing was done. Looks like in this case the warning signs were taken seriously but he STILL went out and did it. Sad.

    The school was limited in what they could have done.

    Suspend him? Sure.

    Call the cops? Sure.

    What’s stopping him from showing up with Daddy’s gun anyways? Cops can’t arrest the kid for something he hasn’t done yet unless he was uttering threats to other people in the school.

    Short of arming teachers (which really would be a new low for the US), I don’t see how this could have possibly been prevented.

    The Father should be charged as an accessory to murder and the kid needs to go away for the rest of his life.

    The father should be charged for negligence.

    You kids school is bringing you in to talk to them about "concerning behavior", and you let him have a sig and three clips?

    That's criminal.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Today almost 3 dozen school districts around Oxford and Metro Detroit were called off due to copycat threats made by students all over social media. Not sure at this time if it's one asshole kid making threats to neighboring school districts or, worse, if it's many kids. Either way, I hope these kid(s) are prosecuted. Expulsion, juvie? I think prosecutors and school districts have to start implementing strict punishments on kids making threats on social media. I don't think they can turn a blind eye any more by giving an excuse like "oh, it's just some dumb kid on social media... we can't do anything about it".

    Also, the notion of "see something, say something" doesn't seem to be working. We'll see when more details come out but there seem to be plenty of kids at that school that knew this asshole was a powder keg.

    I think the strangest aspect about the situation so far is the parents behavior. Meeting at the school, 2 hours later their son is opening fire. Minutes after his arrest his parents instruct him not to say a word and the parents are lawyered up by dinnertime as they (and the shooter) plead not guilty. I mean, what normal parent would have that as their immediate reaction?
