I covered the classroom shooting in Kern County, Calif. the other day more quickly than nearly anyone, and then the aftermath. Admit that I have walked away for the past day and now see that the shooter, age 16, has apparently been IDed, at least by local TV. Now here's a report on students "foreshadowing" or warning of such an attack--by him--on Twitter and Facebook after the Sandy Hook attack.
One girl wrote: If he "shoots up the school, I swear to God. I have like four classes with him." Now they wonder if the school should have known about this, especially light of his suspension for having a "hit list" the previous year.
