They are the shots heard round the world- the shots that have been fired in so many schools across the country Like everyone else I am captivated by this sudden phenomenon After all of the media coverage though there are always unanswered questions Why is this happening now when the biggest problems in schools used to involve getting caught smoking in the bathroom stalls Who is to blame for these tragic occurrences What can be done to stop it Despite my research I havent found the answers and I dont think that I ever will When I began to research this topic I was weary of the cliched-ness of it all I hail from East Carter High School- home of what was quite possibly the first high school shooting ever- and Ive heard people talk about school violence so much that it seems everything that can be said has been said But then I began to do the research and found some disturbing trends Every case of school violence seems to be middle or high school related Try as I might I was unable to find a single incidence of college violence even college hazing reports seemed strangely absent from the newspaper and magazine articles that I searched As I searched for any reports to the contrary I noticed two other trends almost all of the shooters shared a common race Caucasian and gender male The foundation of my report had been laid College hazing seems to be a typical problem I cant remember the amount of Movies of the Week that have been made on the subject A few hours of searching however was not enough for me to produce even one report of college hazing or college crimes in general for that matter It seemed that whatever it was that caused students to kill it
