What the hell would make anyone so bad, and continue shooting after seeing what they have done. Our junior school lost a pupil to terminal cancer recently, a young lad who set up a charity (Harry Moseley) when he died the whole School was incredidbly upset teachers and pupils. how the hell does a school and a community come to terms with something like this. Also apparently this guy shot and killed his mother before he went there.
What is also sad ( he came from the south so our local tv news covered it) is that the family had been over their a time making sure they really liked it and the father had been back to the uk week ago to arrange sale of their house as they had just decided they really liked it there.
All Schools in this country, in fact all groups dealing with children have to have statutary safe guarding policies.even as a Governor I hold two and I never come into contact with kids, But no one could stop something like this.

We used to do a lot of school work and not long before I finished working I went to look at a job in a junior and infant school in Selly Oak. Myself and the surveyor went along to the school and we just walked through the front doors (which were supposed to be locked) we made our way to reception to find it empty. All this time we were being passed by young children in the hallways with no apparent supervision. We were unable to find anyone we could speak to without actually going into a classroom. Eventually the surveyor had to go off and find someone, we must have been inside the school for at least ten minutes. When the surveyor came back with the receptionist I made a scathing remark along the lines I was very happy that my grandchildren were not pupils at that particular school. Strangely enough it was one of the rare school jobs that we didn't get.
