There's absolutely nothing that can be said to explain the whys and hows of a senseless act of violence such as this; but it does raise a lot of questions about personal security and what's the right approach. College campuses have historically been a haven for the free expression of ideas and have, generally, fought hard against measures that would be deemed invasive of one's personal privacy.
Will this change things? Should it?
To anyone that is remotely connected to this incident, know that my thoughts and sympathies are with you in what's arguably the darkest day in U.S. collegiate history.
