Back To School Shootings


After a longish respite, double-digit school shooting rampages return, as a spree at Red Lake High School on Minnesota's* Red Lake Indian Reservation leaves 10 dead (including the apparent gunman). The alleged shooter is 17-year-old Jeff Weise, said to have held "anti-social beliefs" and posted pro-Hitler messages on a neo-Nazi message board. Security procedures proved useless in this case, as Weise apparently shot his way through the metal detector, killing the school's unarmed security guard.
