People seem to have forgotten that the shooter killed two people and was not apprhended because the police already had a “prime” suspect detained. He was the boyfriend of the slain girl and he “fit the profile” because (A) he knew the victim, and (B) he owned a gun.
Sounds entirely reasonable to me. Most of the time that is exactly what happens - it’s somebody close to the victim, not some random loon on a killing spree. I don’t blame the police for this.
What was inexcusable is forcibly rendering everybody else on campus defenseless. There’s pretty much never a cop around when the s**t hits the fan.
