This week is the 2007 shooting on a college campus known as Virginia tech.
The killing began at 7.30 in the morning on April 16th, 2007 in Blacksburg, Virginia.
The shooter killed two people in a dormitory on the college campus. Then two and a half hours later, he chained the doors shut in a classroom building on the campus and he began shooting students and faculty. In all 32 people were killed and another 17 wounded, at least six other students were injured when they jumped from a second floor, classroom window in the end, the shooter committed suicide.
This case is the most important case for why not to name a shooter. It is the ultimate case where the public and the media let the shooter, even in his death, control the narrative.
The man who did this, it's totally his fault. But all of the people along the way let the guard rails down a little bit on the road and for whatever reason, at a given time, he drove the car off the road.
Find out how we can all keep those guard rails up.
