-Parents are not nearly as involved with their kids' day-to-day lives as they should be. It's much harder to build a pipe bomb with someone looking over your shoulder. Planning an all out assault on a school takes planning and time. Maybe our children are being left alone too long.
-Schools are not taking threats and bullying seriously. Most schools have a "no weapons" policy (even toys), but that doesn't matter if the first time a kid brings a weapon to school, they are firing it. Bullies should be punished BEFORE they drive an already unstable kid over the edge. Every threat should be taken seriously.
-The media making "stars" of the kids that do these things only make more kids want to do it. TV has taken the place of parents' influence on children. This is dangerous.
That's just my opinion. What do you think?
