This story amazes me. I first became aware of it when I read a column by Larry Elder from Wednesday, February 13, 2002 called, The media that couldn't shoot straight, found online at: http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=26458

Mr. Elder gave fairly detailed information about how the shooter was stopped on January 16, 2002. A student named Tracy Bridges was in a classroom across from where the first professor was shot. Bridges happened to be an off-duty cop. Bridges went to his car to get his gun then used his weapon and verbal commands to stop Odighizuwa. Simply put, one armed student stopped another student who was on a killing spree.

Elder's column gave some interesting statistics about how the media covered this incident. It's no surprise that very few news stories actually mentioned the fact that Odighizuwa was stopped by another student with a gun.

Now, let's go back to the recent article. If, as the lawsuit against the school contends, "Odighizuwa was allowed to re-enroll after flunking out because he was one of the school's few black students and administrators were desperate to show diversity," then doesn't this demonstrate that guns really don't kill people, but political correctness does?

You're dealing with The Boston Globe.
They're trying to put a shine on a sneaker.

Slayings Still Haunt Law School Shooter

One would hope so, since it's barely been two years since the murders.

However, after reading the entire article, it's clear he thinks the victims deserved it-- either for being "mean to him" or "menacing" or "FBI and CIA agents".

So boston.com has made a vain plea for our sympathy, with that wretched title.

As sad as this situation is, I must admit that I enjoy the irony of a law school being on the receiving end of a bunch of personal injury suits under the theory that it should have known this guy was a nut case and protected its students from him.
