View Full Version : Sad about Colorado

09-29-2006, 10:46 AM
I have been reading the news about the school shooting in CO. this morning and it has made me very sad. I was a Youth Pastor for three years and I love teenagers and it just really upsets me to hear about this pervert hurting some of our kids. It sure would have been nice to for the gunman to walk into a classroom with an armed teacher but unfornutely no one is allowed to carry on campus except LEO's. Just makes me sad and could not even begin to imagine how I would feel if it was one of my kids that was murdered. I do appreciate how the police tried their best to end the standoff. I just wish that the bg was the only one to die. Let's all pray for this family, the community, and the girls that were witnesses to this terrible experience. May God bless the survivors.

Unfortunately, the trauma from such abuse, particularly under those circumstances, lasts a lifetime. Someone I'm very close to suffered from prolonged physical and psychological abuse, and a strong faith is the only thing that has helped them to survive, even after it ended decades ago. Time and prayer will help ease the suffering of these poor young people and their families, but it will always be a shadow over them. I, too, will pray for the survivors, but I also pray that there's a special Hell for those who harm the innocent.

Pray for everyone involved. Included are the officers that were there. They did all they could, but they'll be hurting also. At least the BG won't be in and out of jail again.

im glad that he isnt alive to have the chance to get out of jail, but sometimes i think death is the easy way out for these scumbags

Very sad and it was disappointing SWAT didn't at least get the privilege of shooting him before he shot himself.

Agreed. You know the SWAT guys did their best, but they still lost a hostage and that hurts. Sometimes it's inevitable, but you really have to feel for them because they're going to be replaying that scenario over and over for a long time. Pray that they find some peace. As for the perp or the perv or whatever it was, good riddance, although I have it from a very good source that life in the Colorado prison system ain't no picnic, either.

At least he popped himself...now we don't have to pay to try and jail the guy for the rest of eternity.

It would be nice if we could arm teachers in schools but then I have had teachers that I do not wish to be armed with sling shots.

I was living in Littleton a few years back when Columbine was assaulted. In fact I was less than a block away at a conference when it happened. I had my PU truck and horse trailer parked in front of the school (there were thousand of photo's of cops taking cover behind my truck and trailer) and had to watch in horror as the entire events unfolded.

The police learned from that catastrophe and reacted much better this time, I applaud their efforts and am thankful that only one innocent was killed.

As for the oxygen theif who committed these heinous acts, I can't say I am not glad he offed himself. A more terrible judgement has been sealed unto him that what man could imagine.

Thank the Lord of Hosts that only one innocent died. I could have been much worse, and (sorry to make this political, but the anti's will) the libs would have used it to attack CO's CCW law and general firearms ownership/aquisition and posession laws. Also I am very thankful that the piece of sh*t that did this was not a licensed CCW permit holder.

And there was no law anywhere that would have prevented this from happening.

MO - As usual, you couldn't have said any better. I especially agree about the BG being a CCW permit holder. Another illegal BG using an illegal gun. Gee how come we don't hear from the idiots about that gun or the gun he was using.

Swat did. :D I'm glad they could speed him along his way to hell.

Colo. school gunman was shot 4 times By JON SARCHE, Associated Press Writer

DENVER - The man who took six girls hostage at a Colorado high school last week was shot four times as the standoff ended once by his own gun and three times by SWAT officers, according to autopsy results released Wednesday by state officials.

Another good job done by SWAT. The fact that other lives were lost, is not on them. They saved lives. The lost of lives is on the BG.

These latest shootings that have been going on recently have me a bit scared for what awaits as far as gun legislation. What should be interpreted as a need for expanding CCW and favorable gun laws will be turned into a hard sell to the public for gun control. Every time I see one of these happen, I just cringe. Not to mention the unbelievable sadness of the situation. I am just pointing out the fallout of a situation like this. I think it's safe to say that when we were all in school the worst that would happen was a date with the school bully at the monkey bars with maybe a few bloody noses.
