Three children died this week for no reason. They were not sick, nor were they doing anything dangerous. They simply made the mistake of going to school. TJ Lane, a troubled young man simply decided to kill that day and he snatched the lives of three innocent young people. I along with many Americans have wept as I heard the parents of Daniel Parmertor talk about how he was excited to have his first job, and how he was looking forward to getting his first check. The parents say they will probably bury the check with him. We are left to say why would Lane do this? Initial reports talked of bullying, but that does not appear to be the case. Yesterday I heard some talking heads on the radio ranting on how bullying must not be tolerated, and I agree with that, but that would not be an excuse for this unspeakable horror. This was random and that is what makes it terrifying. My children go to school everyday and I never think of them not returning at the end of the day. This is not the first school shooting, and sadly it will not be the last, but everytime it happens it comes as a surprise.
Why did TJ Lane kill?
