Mass Murders and a Crisis in Confidence

The recent slaughter in Florida is only the latest in a long line, and unfortunately, we should expect that there will be more. The sad facts emerging from these events do not bode well for what will likely happen. What is evident:

a) There is repeatedly complete incompetence by the authorities who are receiving plenty of advance warning.

b) Response by police often seems to be to keep the lucky escapees safe, and wait for the inside situation to seem safe before searching for the killer.

Someone needs to tell the students that guns didn’t kill their classmates, the Broward County Sheriff’s Department did.
