On August 17, 2011, Tampa Bay police arrested Jared Cano, 17 on the suspicion of planning a Columbine like school shooting. During the arrest, police found bomb making materials as well as schematic diagrams of the high school that he was expelled from last year.
Since the fatal incident at Columbine high school, there has been a rash of similiar "copycat" type of activities all across America. The one troubling aspect to this phenomena is that there is been little if any, discussion questioning the current manner of parenting and child rearing.
What do you believe contributes to the mindset and behavior that if not addressed, can lead to a repeat of the bloodshed and mayhem that costs the lives of many already?
This show is from a British program that recounts a minute by minute account of the shooting and events that lead up toward the shooting. Let us also remember the Remember the victims of the Columbine shootings from April 20, 1999, Cassie Bernall,

Program Summary 12 July 2014
Filmmakers Tia Lessen and Carl Deal worked with Michael Moore on Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine, and made a movie, Trouble the Water, on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. They made plans to deal with money in politics and the Citizens United Supreme Court decision when in early 2011 a grassroots rebellion began in Wisconsin.
The newly elected governor Scott Walker, deeply funded by money from the Koch brothers, had proposed eliminating bargaining rights for public employees. Tia Lessen and Carl Deal captured - over several months - one of the most inspiring social movements of our time and the first large scale rebellion against money in politics. The images of teachers, nurses and fire fighters occupying the State House, one on one conversations with participants in the protests - many of them Republicans who reject the extremism of the Tea Party, and the coverage of the recall campaign that collected almost a million signatures - all that makes up the heart of the movie.
Sadly though Walker's high financed rise to power and the even better funded defeat of the recall movement stand at the beginning and end of the movie as warning that the power of money over politics must be broken. This movie is a contribution to that end.
Independent radio journalist and producer, Christina Aanestad spoke with Tia Lessen at the opening of her film in San Francisco at the Opera Plaza Cinemas. It was a packed house and they spoke in the lobby of the theater amongst late arrivals of movie goers and a popcorn stand.
July 8 Lisa Graves, The Progressive magazine publisher and editor in chief Center for Media and Democracy talks with Democracy Now Amy Goodman latest revelations about Charles Koch's background.
Over the last 15 years the world has undergone a rash a violent crimes, particularly as it concerns shootings. The Columbine High School shootings of 1999 started what seemed to be a media frenzy around coverage of highly violent crimes. Since Columbine, other noted shootings include Virginia Tech University (2007), Aurora, Colorado movie theater (2012), Fort Hood, Texas (2009 and 2014) and the list unfortunately goes ON! Are technology and the media to blame? Are we to blame for our incessant need to be "entertained" and in the know? Join us as we discuss the most current shooting massacre of Isla Vista. Joining us in the discussion is International Trauma expert Dr. Susan Sutton-Clawson.
Dennis Carradin attempts to answer a very difficult question on this episode of Own Your Life: Why are kids killing kids in this violent school shooting epidemic? During this episode, Dennis will attempt to give reasons for the epidemic as well as ways society can help stop and prevent school shootings. He will also discuss how our society may be breeding these juvenile killers. Listen to this powerful episode of Own Your Life on Thursday, June 26th at 9:30 PM on BlogtTalkRadio.com/DennisCarradin.
Psychological healing from the shootings at schools in urban, suburban or rural areas is a tremendous challenge for concerned citizens of America and the world! Healing, both physical and psychological healing, is a process of restoring a situation to a balanced or functioning state. Unfortunately, the emotional scars in the healing process are usually seen or felt long after the traumatic situation or damage is over. Repairing or restoring our mental state after experiencing random shootings in public places (i.e. our schools, workplaces, malls,) is far more challenging than fixing the physical wounds. The Student2Teacher show has always focused on "down to earth" topics that will help Adult Students and Veterans succeed in school/college and work, even with mental and physical disabilities. The psychological impact of random shootings and stabbings in our schools/colleges was not expected to hinder success but it has, according to many students , employees and teachers! The innocent lives lost to shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary, Columbine, Virginia Tech, to the recent Oregon school, and so many other "assumed safe" institutions, is a memorable tragedy, whether you were in the line of fire or watching on the news. . Please join Dr. Applewhite, staff at White Apple Institute, and Guests as they discuss ways to start the healing process from the violence in schools.

Dr. Cathy Reimers, Ph.D., psychologist in New Jersey, and co-host Jennifer Russello, parent in New Jersey, revisit the horrendous recurring incidents of students on a rampage to commit murders. Join us as Dr. Cathy focuses on the profile of these shooters, so students can recognize "killer" behavior, ultimately preventing these heinous killings. We send our kids off to school or college thinking they are safe, yet all too often the news is covering more and more shootings. Just recently there was the shootings in Santa Barbara, the Craig list killer and the school massacre in Sandy Hook, recent mall shootings, Columbine and so many other senseless acts of murder committed by American youths. What makes these young people want to kill? What can be done to profile troubled youths and get them the help they so desperately need? How can we teach others to recognize the warning signs? Join us to discuss this recurring nightmare.
Schools and communities are made safe through positive relationships! April marks the 15th year since the fatal Columbine (CO) High School massacre, touted as the deadliest mass murder committed on an American high school campus. Since then, United States citizens have witnessed some of the most violent attacks against our children in K-12 schools, colleges and universities. These tragedies remind us of how important it is to keep our children safe, so I will interview my colleague, Mr. Timothy Mallory--Security Consultant in the Richmond (VA) area--who will share practical steps for ensuring a positive and safe learning environment for our children and adults in our schools and communities.
Children adopted from foster care or from an orphanage abroad have likely experienced some level of trauma from abuse, neglect, or malnutrition. What can adoptive parents do to help?
