    "If the shooter had not committed suicide I think you would have seen the criminal nature of this event became the primary theme."

    That's exactly my point. Because he's dead the very necessary exploration of this event as a criminal act is short circuited and that is wrong and dangerous.

    I reject the word "tragedy" completely. A tragedy is something you bring upon yourself; as a society, yes, this is a tragic situation because it's our own damn culture of violence that brought it about. But those kids and teachers were victims of violent crime, period.
