    NH - Kassandra - Benjamin - Mason Sweeney Shot to Death in Northfield - Juvenile Charged

    So, the murderer here may have known the victims. Or not. He may have been a neighbor, or someone known to the family. Or he may have just been passing through, with intent to kill innocents, which I find difficult to believe. It's apparent he wasn't too hard to find, as early on LE indicated...

    NH - Kassandra - Benjamin - Mason Sweeney Shot to Death in Northfield - Juvenile Charged

    I would think, and I'm not LE here, but I would think if LE knows all parties involved, and there is no threat to the public, then the murderer is either dead, locked up in a secure facility somewhere, or is some how otherwise being detained in custody. How long can a potential suspect be held...

    NH - Kassandra - Benjamin - Mason Sweeney Shot to Death in Northfield - Juvenile Charged

    So, the aforeposted article indicates LE has identified all parties involved. A triple homicide that was not random. There has been no arrest. There is no threat to the public. Is there something obvious I'm missing here? I'm perplexed.

    I agree. All parties involved have been identified yet there is no arrest?

    Found Deceased IN - Abigail (Abby) Williams, 13, & Liberty (Libby) German, 14, The Delphi Murders 13 Feb 2017 #147

    I narrow this case down to these possibilities. 1. LE doesn't know who the killer is. 2. LE does know, but can't prove it in a court of law. 3. LE does know, but other investigative avenues are contingent upon not bringing this particular case to court at this time. I go back and forth...

    TX - Uvalde; Robb Elementary, 19 children and 3 adults killed, shooter dead, 24 MAY 2022

    A wide open door in a public school in the U.S. is a major mistake. Major. Ultimately the killer is responsible.

    He may have still gotten in. There is NO guarantee of safety, no where, ever. But that open door is the largest mistake in this scenario. Had it been closed, it would have bought a bit of time. There are numerous other problems with that particular school in terms of safety. Armchair...

    Yep. The propped open door is THE biggest issue to take away here. Had that door not been open, precious minutes would have been gained. <modsnip>

    I'll keep saying it as long as permitted. LE have no obligation to act in defense of another. None. One's defense must come from one's self. The responsibility for my safety rests with me. Plus, being fired upon by a 5.56 NATO rifle will cause even the toughest to pause.

    TX - Uvalde; Robb Elementary, 19 children and 3 adults killed, shooter dead, 24 MAY 2022

    It's easy to second guess decisions. Consider a school hallway, the wall between the hall and the classroom, and the classroom door. That shooter could have been spraying bullets in to that door and hallway on a regular basis. It would be suicide to approach without the proper gear. Maybe...

    TX - Uvalde; Robb Elementary, 19 children and 3 adults killed, shooter dead, 24 MAY 2022

    I've said it a dozen time in the past couple days. LE has no duty nor are they required by law to protect you. Period. Your protection has to come from YOU. I would WAY much rather take my chances against a crazed murderer, whether a man or woman, whether a gun, knife or bat, being...

    Actually, in the school where I worked, numerous men and women had their concealed carry permits, they were trained. Some even Iraq/Afghanistan/Military. But guess what. They can't carry in school. So, yeah, there they are. Ready and willing to protect the kids they serve, yet can not. It's a shame.

    One other item I might add. Not to be too pesky, as I don't want to over do my welcome. But our school actually had several United States Military, combat veterans, as teachers. There are people in schools who are highly trained, and/or willing to be trained. When an armed intruder enters a...

    You do. That's what concealed carry is all about. I've read a lot of comments on this site, but truth be told, the killer in a situation like this only stops when they run out of ammo, the firearm jams, they decide to commit suicide, they sit down and quit, or they are killed by someone else...

    TX - Uvalde; Robb Elementary, 19 children and 3 adults killed, shooter dead, 24 MAY 2022

    While considering some of the posts, some of more recent thinking has moved away from the shelter in place idea. Of course, each school will differ, but many I know of have given the decision making to shelter in place, or flee the classroom/building, to the teacher. Obviously, there are times...

    Classroom doors lock from the outside, but can be opened from the inside. The handle from the inside opens the door regardless of the door being locked or unlocked from the outside.

    This is an excellent argument for personal concealed carry. LE has no legal obligation to act. Ultimately, it is the individual who is responsible for their own protection.

    All doors in public schools have panic bars on them. Exiting the building is not a problem.
