This kid was alleged to have been the victim of bullying, so I ask you, did he take the lives of innocent kids or the lives of those who made his a living hell? Think about it. What goes around comes around.

Agreed.
It is still sad that it had to come down to it, but if no one else in the world is listening to you...well of course people will take things into their own hands to resolve the problem.

Because some parents unfortunately ,cannot see or refuse to acknowledge the wrong their children do .Bullying needs to be addressed in the home . These children that were shot may not have been the offender , but as adults we know that sometimes peter pays for paul .Bullets are not selective, you have a kid filled with rage that has built up over time and he has access to a gun , no good can come out of this.Teachers are there to prepare your kids for the future , but manners ,respect ,and all that goes with it should be taught at home not high school

this kid was stated to have been a vicitm of bullying. So, I ask you, did he take the lives of innocent victims, or the lives of those who tormented him?

A little reading goes a long way. The people shot were all randomly shot. T J told the prosecutor that he was not bullied. This could have been prevented had the other kids who were alerted had said something...

Remember...his son? where'd he go?

That's very sad, they never thought that morning going to school would be the last time they saw them, make you think about a lot of things we should tell our loved ones every time they step out of the house each morning, It could be the last time we do.

Mr. Parmetor is correct-things will never be the same. The standard American response to tragedy often involves some variation on the phrase 'recover from this', which is ludicruous. People cannot recover who they were nor can they hope to recover the life they had before the loss. It's better to accept this and understand that one now has a new life and a new identity. Yes, the pain may lessen with time. But it won't go away completely...and that is as it should be, because our pain is a sort of tribute to the significance the lost one had in our previous life. There is a middle ground between the sappy 'everything' gonna be fine' nonsense and indulging in self-pity for the rest of one's days. The sooner we learn this, the sooner we can work toward a quality of life that is at least bearable.

Do people HONESTLY believe that homeschooling will stop theri kids from suffering a similar fate? You are delusional and in need of serious help. Sheltered kids like this may very well get hit by a bus their first time out because they do not have mommy or daddy's hand to hold them while they cross the street. I pity these homeschooled children because they are missing out on so much... I am so sorry for these families. All they did was send their children to school and their lives have been shattered. Bless them all.

They may get hit by a bus, but at least you know as a parent you did what you could to help your child...public school has always been a class war...the haves and have nots...the popular and the outcast...at least if you homeschool your child, you know that no one is putting him in a trash can because he is smart, nerdy or poor....homeschooled children do not always turn out sheltered, unsociable people...many go on to do very, very well..my 17 year old daughter included...we homeschooled because she was being bullied and no one at the school would do anything about it...al least I know my daughter was safe from the constant abuse and tormenting that was destroying her..forget learning anything....mayble there is no easy answer..but each parent must do what they feel is best for their child....

Sad, sad, sad! When will we ever learn? You can't unpull the trigger and you can't unring the bell.

I feel so bad for the parents who lost their child. I haven't read what caused the young shooter to kill these kids. Someone said he was being bullied by students.If this is the case where was the school with information on what bullying can do to a person. Obviously if that WAS the case it has now affected more than just one life. It has almost destroyed several. Hard to feel sympathy for the shooter and easy to put all our sympathy with the families of the lost one but somewhere in between is a story that is being missed by all.

There is no words for the loss of a child especially in this way. My heart goes out to the parents that lost a child.

hmmm what to do with TJ? Forgive him? Lock him up and throw away the key? Death by Stoning on Chardon's green by its' residence, or a public hanging there?

Try him as an adult....his 'sickness' is not an excuse.

"If a man shedeth man's blood, let their blood be shed" ... and "man" refers to mankind, i.e., women & children, and YES I would be saying this if T.J. were my beloved son !

Even the children we LOVE, God commands us to "turn their body over to Satan, so that their soul may be saved". NO DILEMMA HERE "Painter1012"

When are we going to stop with the stupidity and political correctness nonsense. Don't use the word alledgely, he absolutely shot those kids. There are no doubts about it and it should stated as such. To categorize it as anything else is shameful.

Too sad! These parents will stagger under the buyrden of these senseless losses for the rest of their lives.
