128. So you did
I must have skimmed over that part. Apologies.

I don't know how much blame the school holds. Despite all the publicity, hysteria, and "moral panic", school shootings are in fact very rare occurances. Doubtless the school was worried about a gang beat-down, a "hate crime". But this?

Unless there was more solid evidence, like what the Columbine killers did, or that guy that shot up that VoTech school in Canada last year, there may simply have been no warning signs to act upon. Like the NIU shooter.
