These shootings are happening in so called "gun-free" zones. The shooters know that the victims will have no way of defending themselves and that is why there are tradgedies happening in gun free zones. We need to give the teachers defense so that the phyco will be discourraged. there is greater evidence that greater gun control means more gun violence.
Ashley Sosinski's comment, April 27, 2014 6:18 PM
I believe that there should be sctricter security in schools no matter how nice and safe an area may seem. Get some metal detectors or something, and require every person to go through security checks, even if the staff knows them. Especially since many people who commit these crimes are not just random strangers.

School violence is defined as youth violence that occours on school property, on the way to or from school or school sponsered events, or during a school sponsered event. The young person can be found as a victim, a perpertrator, or a witness to school violence according to the CDC.
Ashley Sosinski's comment, April 27, 2014 5:54 PM
the risk of a youth engaging in violence at school can increase because of varying factors. However, the pesence of these factors does not always mean that a young person will become an offender.
-prior history of violence
-drug, alcohol, or robacco use
-association with delinquent peers
-poor family functioning
-poor grades
-poverty in the community
Ashley Sosinski's comment, April 27, 2014 5:58 PM
universal and school based prevention programs can significantly lower rates of agression and violent behavior. These programs are delivered to all students in a school or grade level based on understanding. Not only do they develop skills but teach about different topics. Emotional self-awareness and control, positive social skills, problem solving, conflict resolution, and teamwork skills are just a few topics worked on in one-on-one atmospheres to help lessen the chance of school violence.

Krokodile is a synthetic drug similar to meth, heroin, etc. It is made of opiods, cedeine, and stuff you can easily find from hardware store such as lighter fluid, and paint thinner. the drug is injected into your body and is considered extrmely scary stuff.the drug possesses Russian roots and is extremely prevelant in Russia.<br>The drug when taken in eats flesh turning green and scaley. These physical effects are caused because the drug detroys tissue and vessels and can make skin fall off. the drug has been linked to states such as Illionis and Arizona but hasnt posed much of a threat because of the ready availability of heroin in the US. the drug is expected to become more popular but is not a giant threat to society.

The drugs so called route or entry point is considered the way the drug entered the body. This is the most influencing factor in any overdose situation. This can include how and the rate od signs and symptoms develop. Some entry points are ingestion(swallowing), inhalation, injection and transdermal absorption, and as well as throught the mucosa od the urethra, vagina and rectum. Entry point influences the pace of effects of the drug. Injectuion into the blood stream will show i mmediate results as oral ingestion tend to occour more slowly because the drug has to pass through the gI system first.
Ashley Sosinski's comment, April 3, 2014 9:44 PM
the determination od when the substance was ingested is also im portant to treatment of overdose symptoms. it can lead to insight on the patient's current condition. Also consider the last oral intake. a patient that has taken 24 tablets of a substance on an empty stomach will differ greatly compared to a patient that ingested 6 tablets of substance after eating a full meal. a full stomach may delay the effects of the substance that was taken which in turn can delay all signs and symptoms.

At columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado on April 20th, 1999 two teens set out on a shooting spree killing 13 people and wounding more than 20 others before turning their guns on themselves and committing suicide. The crime is known to be the worst high school shooting in the U.S. ad engaged a national debate on gun control and school safety. There was speculation that the two committed the crimes because they both had history of being bullied, were members of social outcasts fascinated by the goth culture, or had been influenced by violent video games and music. However, though there were so many theories, none were proven true.

The most deadly school shooting in U.S. history took place on April 16th. 2007 when a gunman killed 32 people before killing himself at Virginia Tech, a public university in Blacksburg, Virginia.
Ashley Sosinski's comment, April 27, 2014 6:08 PM
the aftermath of the shootings caused many schools arcoss America to enact the "zero tolerance"rule regarding disruptive behavior and threats of violence from students. In the fall of 1999, Columbine High School reopened but left a devistating scar on the community. Mark Manes, the man who sold a gun to Harris and bought him 100 rounds of ammo was sentenced to six years in prison. the other man, Phillip Duran, who introduced Harris and Klebold to Manes, was also sentenced to prison time. Some victims and families tried to file suits against the school or police, but most were dismissed in court.

How heroin works:<br>Mixed with water, heroin is most often injected into the bloodstream. by injecting the drug directly, it reduces the "lag" and effects are almost immediate. Heroin can also be Smoked, Snorted, or eaten. Smoking of the drug destroys some ingredients and mutes it's effects. <br> There is an immediate rush of extreme relaxation and decreased sense of pain as soon as the drug is put into the body. Heroin is turning into morphone inside your body to halt pain and create a good feeling. When the morphin in nuerons start acting like endorphins and binds to the opiod receptors in the brain the receptors are blocked, causing a high.

The most typical reason for people overdosing dying is that their own body forgets to breathe. When you take the drug, it makes you extremely relaxed and tired. if you were to fall asleep your respiratory system has a great chance of shutting down. essentially, when sober your body remembers to breathe for you, but when your high, the body simply forgets. Not only does respiratory failure cause death but heart failure. When the drug is effecting your body, your boold pressure dips drastically. in some cases it falls too much and can cause your heart to stop. Studies show that injectors are almost 300 times more likely to die from an infection of the heart called infectious endocarditis
