They were mostly school teachers and cops.

Good luck.

believe anyone tried to tell you to shut up. Someone simply pointed out that accusing murder victims of raping children, without any grounds whatsoever, may be inappropriate at this time.

Not much of that going on, it seems.

Maybe they were caught up in her poor aim and anger.

That she wasn't in Elementary school at age 16. Which is how old she would have been a dozen years ago. 15 if you use a bakers dozen.

So she was 14, in elementary school. "Over a dozen" could be anywhere from 12 - infinity. So since we are making wild speculations I speculate that there was a 16 year old in elementary school. It's just as plausible as your speculations. Just sayin.

But I wrote "over a dozen" to cover 6-13.

And I do cover other plausibilitiess like derangement or a current "beef" (like an affair ).

There are many possible reasons, and pointless, fact-free speculation is not helpful.

would be to return the school and murder children.

But I'm not a psychologist.

We should wait until there is more information about the shooter.

No, that's not it. It was Covenant School. There is a difference between those two words. An important difference. Look up the two words.

Please try to be more careful with what you write. Thank you.

But people fixate on lots of things for lots of reasons. Guessing is probably unhelpful.

The Presbyterian Church is one of the more liberal Protestant denominations. They are not Bible-banging evangelicals; they support LGBTQ relationships, including the ordination of gay clergy and same-sex marriage. They are not anti-abortion and leave the issue to personal conscience. They also support gun control. https://www.presbyterianmission.org/what-we-believe/social-issues/ Maybe it would be helpful to find out more about the school and its sponsor before assuming it to be a nest of pedophiles.
