Man surrenders to media; charged in Ala shooting

(AP) OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) The suspect in a deadly east Alabama community college shooting Wednesday walked up to reporters and photographers in a blood-stained parking lot, calmly told them he was the man police were after and was quickly arrested and charged with murder.

The shooting at Southern Union Community College in Opelika killed a 63-year-old woman, wounded two more women, ages 36 and 94, and injured a 4-year-old who was hit with flying glass.

About three hours later, when city officers already had left campus, a man driving a white Jeep Liberty with the same tag number police had released as the suspect's pulled into the parking lot where the shootings occurred.

Photographer Todd van Emst, who was taking photos of the scene for The Associated Press, said the man asked to use his cell phone.

1. What we'll end up with here at DU

is a blood and guts debate that guns are needed on campuses but what those who advocate such nonsense fail to realize is that most of these mass shooters are law abiding citizens until they snap. Do we then allow more people with guns on campuses to protect us from those with guns who snap? Will more guns really stop that or will we see even more incidents such as these?

2. that's the idea. if everyone on campus has a gun, then they could shoot this guy before he can hurt
anyone. that is the argument I have seen before. not sure if it would have stopped this guy or shit like it or if there would be more of it or not. I don't really think it would have done either. but the idea of knowing everyone around you has a gun scares the bejebus out of me.

3. That's just silly.
What we need are GRENADES!

That way, you can take cover and just lob a grenade at a shooter.

We need to put grenades in every classroom, right next the fire extinguisher.
