We just had a discussion in our house. We were wondering why the police need to do this exhaustive investigation of the crime scene when most everyone agrees the killer has been found, and he is dead--so he is not going to be prosecuted?
What are they looking for, and would it be better to simply get this circus over as soon as possible.
Does anyone have any explanation for the layman?
The more they understand, the better they can fix security.
(not an expert)
Probably the same reason they had to arrest the shooter’s brother even though he was two states away and couldn’t possibly have had anything to do with it. It’s all for our own good, somehow.
I think this is a Standard Operating Procedure. They have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt and if they miss something they get raked through the fire. There are probably going to be some big lawsuits here and lots of money involved so they want to be able to cover anything in court.
The Police are not here to protect you but to enforce the law.
If they didn’t do an exhaustive investigation, it would become an instant conspiracy theory about what they’re trying to cover up.
they need to provide as many answers to what happened so that we have as many facts as possible. This will help provide a basis to analyze correctly what went wrong and to refute bad “solutions” to the problem.
That was my first thought once it was known the murderer was dead and all the victims identified. Also, why so many armed away type guys walking around for hours and hours after the event was over.
Lots of overtime to be made?
Perp didn’t have legal access to handguns.
Where did they come from?
Why did he do this?
There will never be a satisfactory explanation, but mental health issues need better understanding and treatment.
He left written material.
What does it reveal?
School security? How do you improve that?
Plethora of propaganda presented for the progressive presstitutes and polidiots to pander with IMHO ....
Personal polite presumption on my part....
Stay safe ...
I know reports say he was wearing a mask and I’d like to get a look at that as well as any written messages he may have left.
I personally feel they are finding the answers to who/what/where/when/possibly why/how. Plus, they have to make sure no one else was involved. I’ve never been a victim of this kind of horror; however, If so... I would want to know the answers.
Almost every LEO is, in absolute harsh reality, actually a uniformed crime scene investigator. The odds of a law enforcement officer actually being at the scene of a crime while it is happening is extremely small. The locations where they are most likely to prevent a crime is at their homes, in their patrol cars, and at their station.
The above reality check is why crimes actually go down as more and more citizens arm themselves and go for their concealed carry permits.
Unfortunately, what we are seeing right now are LOEs and the justice system doing the job they know and do best - documenting what happened.
Now the social workers will get in the game by asking what made him do this? As if an answer for this individual can be applied to other individuals and our society as a whole.
Shortly the politicians will get into the act, finishing the three ring circus, by passing more ineffective laws trying to keep guns out of the hands of ....(fill in the blank with their newest politically correct target group).
Bitter - YOU BETCHA. I am bitter over all of the tomorrows that were so suddenly lost yesterday and all the tears that will be shed this Christmas and for years to come. And this came in spite of the community's best efforts to prevent it.
People want answers -— are you going to provide them? My guess is no.
being two states away doesn’t mean he wasnt involved . taking him away in handcuffs was a bit much
Exactly. All those cops saw 20 murdered children as nothing but a chance to make a few bucks.
Where do you people come from?
Ryan was not arrested. He was questioned, which makes perfect sense since the perp was carrying his ID.
He certainly could have had "something to do with it." Ever heard of conspiracy? Only people present at the scene of a crime can be involved?
He lived with his mother, who legally owned the guns.
He killed mom and took the guns off to school.
school security? The town or citizenry can hire security officers, or 1 or 2 school employees can be allowed to be trained how to operate a handgun. Those poor kids and teachers had zero ability to defend themselves. Security measures like locked doors dont stop a nut with a pistol or hand grenade. I remember Columbine, or at least if I remember correctly, the police sat outside the school and waited for the shooting to stop before they entered the school. Yesterday the police didnt hesitate to enter the school to try to stop the disaster
>> And this came in spite of the community’s best efforts to prevent it.
Like having a more secure school entry system?
Like training and arming teachers?
Like clamping down on the media circus that will turn little Mr. Nut Boy into a hero to all the whack jobs in the country?
Like not confining identified nuts to institutions?
