Nothing, no profiling or screening, could have prevented yesterday's tragedy. It is possible it could have been minimized with better security proceedures by the college. Two hours went by after the first two killings with minimal communication by Tech staff. This is just the world we live in. The gunman, who reportedly left a note blaming the rest of us for his evil deed, took 33 lives including his own. Only God will ever really know why. The accusations will fly, and the blame will be accessed (ultimately it really is the shooter's fault, of course, but he is dead so someone or something else must pay), and we will all try to understand what cannot be understood.
