I'm sure we're going to hear the crying, screaming and other noise about the "Why did you shoot that poor child! He was only a kid! " from those folks who don't understand that you die just as easily when shot by a "kid" as you do when it's an adult. Glad no Officers were harmed and the school remained safe.
