  • its my business

    Our system has to step up to the plate and incur harsher punishments for these campus shootings. Scare the copycatters severly from acting out on these crimes. These weekly, monthly, and sometimes it seems almost daily tragedies, need to stop. I don’t have the answers – but when I was going to colege, I never had to look over my shoulder. Kids nowadays in college must have some sort of fear as they travel off to class. Like I said, I wish I had the answers. Stiffer punishments, regardless whether anyone dies or not. Life in prison if convicted, no rules barred.???
