Wolf Blitzer, Soledad O'Brien & Howard Kurtz trade notes on what it's like to put aside emotion when covering tragedies.
When the story first broke they commented on the stringent security measures that were in place at the school. I guess my question is what happened that allowed the shooter to enter without being challenged?
Wolf, been watching your reporting since the the 1st Gulf War. Great job so far on the school shooting coverage. But, yesterday Soledad went off reporting and giving her opinion about Gun Control, she needs to ask the questions and let the respondent answer, she was off base, again today this morning a CNN reporter again started asking about "Automatic Weapons and not Semi-Automatic Weapons, she reported the the shooter had "Automatic Weapons" referred to the weapon's magazines as "clips" most people who have an understanding about weapons know the magazine is not a clip. Please stay with the facts. It is very clear to me, the school should have provided an Armed Security Officer, like a retired Law Enforcement or Police Officer assigned to the schools. Why does it seem like the people in the area are shocked if a Police Officer is assigned to the school. In my area of the country we have had a Police Office/Law Enforcement Officer of some type in our schools and the metro area since the late 60s. It's a normal procure to have security at most schools, malls and movie theaters including special events, Why not protect your self from things you cannot control. The school district is responsible for this tragedy. Why are the dead teachers called heroes? They would have been better off alive to protect there students and assistance with the events as they happened, why did the school nurse hide for 4 hours in a closet, instead of helping the wounded and dying, she wasn't protecting the students cowering in a closet for 4 hrs.
