The Red Lake Shootings
Authorities are trying to find a motive for 16 year old Jeff Weise who shot and killed 10 and wounded 7 yesterday at a school on an Indian Reservation in Red Lake, Minnesota.
The comparison to Columbine is inevitable, and I've written about that over at 5280. Teresa Nielsen Hayeden at Making Light makes some excellent points, particularly about the parallels to the faux story of Cassie Bernal.
From the first news article above:
Reggie Graves, a student at Red Lake High School, said he was watching a movie about Shakespeare in class Monday when he heard the gunman blast his way past the metal detector at the school’s entrance, killing a guard. Then, in a nearby classroom, he heard the gunman say something to his friend Ryan: “He asked Ryan if he believed in God,” Graves said. “And then he shot him.”
