I just talked to a friend with a son at Central who is ok, so I’m relieved about that. Apparently he was just walking in this morning when the shot when off and was able to get back outside immediately. I’ll be adding reaction as I read it.
Again, Twitter is the best place to keep up. As always, Michael Silence has roundups. I’m following vagredajr, djuggler, cathymccaughan plus people from Middle and West Tennessee who are sending thoughts and prayers.
An article on the victim by the KNS. Interesting in the comments that people instantly look for someone to blame. Instantly–without having all the facts. Makes you wonder–would their reaction be different if this shooting had occurred on a Friday night in the streets? Would they even care? Would there be this much coverage?
Something to think about…
