Teen Gunman Shoots 5 @ Ohio School

Did any of you know people at this school?

    I don’t think you understand how mentally debilitating growing up in a broken home and being bullied can be. If he had grown up in a supportive environment he would not feel inclined to lash out violently. When a kid has been dealing with abusive parents, parents that have a criminal past, bullying, all of the emotions that they try to bury reach a breaking point where being physically violent is just how their mind reacts. I truly believe that if this kid was given the chance to grow up in a better environment his morals would have grounded him and he would be living a much happier life.

    It’s important to inform yourself about the actual effects of bullying and to understand the mental impact of it. Not all kids would have enough confidence or would be afraid to seek help. Yes, killing is bad, but unfortunately the way he grew up has a huge impact on what happened.

    ^^ is in response to:
    i live about 2 hours away. it was really awful to hear what happened. i sat and watched the news for like 2 hours today because they were covering this. i never watch the news.
    in my opinion even if you are/were being bullied you still have no right to take the life of someone. everyone has problems, you just have to fight through them. if you’re being bullied, go seek some help. don’t go and kill people. what do you get out of it? a dead kid and life in prison? was it really worth it?
    seriously, what has this world come to now?

    I go to Chagrin High School and its like 20 minutes away from Chardon, we play them all the time and I know several people who go there. It’s so devastating, theres so much hatred and evil in the world. Those poor 3 kids who passed. My guy friends’ cousin was Russell King who passed away. We need to look at this and realize that we never help and we learn these valuable lessons once its too late.

    I feel so bad for everyone affected by this tragic incident. I wouldn’t be able to handle it.
    If he was bullied, then those who pushed him to this point need help. However, regardless of what he had to deal with on a daily basis, he still murdered 3 people and should be held responsible for his actions.

    I know friends who work at this high school and it is such a tragic event. However, I think people needed to look more into the signs that caused this tragedy. The shooter, TJ Lane, posted statues and pictures on his facebook and twitter account saying what he planned to do. This could have been prevented. However, let us take this as a learning experience. More things need to be done at home and school to prevent bullying. We need to teach our kids love not anger. Acceptance and not to pass judgement. May the three victims rest in peace and may angels lead them in. Also, let us pray for TJ, for he is obviously troubled to internalize his bullying into such anger.

    What happened was tragic and I am in no way condoning bullying, but as of now, there isn’t any significant evidence of the boy being bullied. However, there is evidence of him being raised in an unfit household with dysfunctional parents and a violent father who has quite the crime streak. Though he could have been bullied, he was mentally unable more than anything.

    I went to school in the neighboring town. I am now in college and live far away, but the impact still hits. A matter of 2 miles in address could have made that my high school… I don’t know what I would do if it were…. so tragic.

    i go to school near hear and its very sad for our whole community. We’re small town Ohio kids used to being out of the spot light so for something like this to happen is completely out of the ordinary. Today we all wore red to school so i suggest all of you do the same in honoring the victims. It is very sad that three have died and I pray every night and am thankful for being safe. Please pray for these ohio kids

    many crimes in the past have been posted before the fact, not taken seriously, and then people were “surprised” when the threats were carried out. you’d think people would learn by now to not ignore threatening statements.

    I don’t know any kids from that school but I live maybe like 40 minutes away from Chardon, and I think its such a shame that this has happened in such a nice and small community. Im praying for the family of the victims, and the kids that go to Chardon high school.

    I live a couple hours north from there and it’s just horrible to hear about. The fact that the boy had warned people and no one thought anything of it is a serious problem in its own. He should not have been pushed to the point that he thought the only thing he could do was murder. He obviously had some underlying issues but bullying just threw him over the edge. I’m so glad my high school is very against bullying. Here, we have antibullyiing fridays with pink shirts that kids and teachers wear. We have antibullying seminars for our freshman coming in because they know if they start there in high school, they can make a difference. We also have a club called GSA which is Gay Straight Alliance. We celebrate everyone here. I wish that all schools could have programs like this or even more people who care.

    I live in Ohio. That school is about an hour or so from where I live. It’s really sad what bullying someone can result in such a tragic way. People need to open their eyes and see that bullying someone can result in these after effects. Stand up againist it. Praying for all those affected by the tragic shooting.
