A psychiatrist contacted the University of Colorado threat assessment team with concerns about the Aurora shooting suspect before the attack.
It seems we need more controls on our colleges ability to police themselves and not report threats to outside University authorities after Sandusky, Aurora Colorado, and other school shootings.
anderson- regarding holding psychiatrists accountable, i once reached out to my councelling center at hobart and william smith college, and my phone call wasnt even returned. theyll take money so long as they bear no responsibility.
Things have to change! In EVERYONE of these types of shootings there is always someone or numerous people that saw warning signs. I am not blaming the person or people that didn't report, as hindsight is 20/20. However, we need to make laws and policies that can streamline reporting this type of threat. So many lives lost over the years because of these types of shootings. There have also been many lives saved because people have been reported and intercepted! Not as much coverage on the news, but vitally important. Report and support changes that allow/mandate people to report!
The U of Colorado accepted a young man who was a high achiever, who had received
government money Usually a University would feel a certain obligation to see that the student did well. An "F" could effectively finish a career like his. I would like to know more about the oral exam. Generally, the faculty knows much more than the student, and could easily make
a student look terrible. Also, some people are very afraid of oral exams; faculties can help a student with such a problem by what questions they initially ask, by how they direct the exam. Most often the faculty knows the strengths and weaknesses of the student before they begin the exam. To say that a student flunked such an exam is most unusual to me. Is it common these days, to give such an exam after only one year? There are many unanswered questions; some shld be investigated. Cld such a terrible tragedy have been avoided?
