Secret Service releases school shooter report
In the wake of yet another tragic school shooting in Santa Clarita, California, a U.S. Secret Service study of school violence found that most students who committed deadly attacks over the past deca
de were badly bullied, had a history of disciplinary trouble and their behavior concerned others but was never reported. “These are not sudden, impulsive acts where a student suddenly gets disgruntled,” Lina Alathari, head of the Secret Service's National Threat Assessment Center, told the Associated Press. “The majority of these incidents are preventable.”
The findings will help train school officials and law enforcement on how to better identify students who may be planning an attack and how to stop them.
