    Wow, couple hours and no replies to a shooting thread.

    Must be still hungover from the others while we figure out how they were either Bush or Obama's fault.

    We'll be in here later, A.

    Probably a drugged up whacko pissed off that he had to take a drug test.

    Allie's scenario is most likely. Sadly, this is one reason why I am against giving junkies so much extra treatment, though it's only a small part of my reasoning. ;)

    I know it's very tragic...but is every public shooting going to get national attention now? These things happen on a daily basis

    Most people do drug testing either because it's a requirement of employment, or it's a random requirement of their jobs, or it's a part of their probabation.

    It could have been someone pissed off at somebody who was there, either to work or to be tested. A lot of these are just DV cases gone off the rail.

    Yes, but often "tough love" works for the junkies ... letting them out as long as they "complete a program" just hasn't worked, I see it all the time in my areas. I know more tricks to fake a UA than I care to know, as well as how they get high on the "prescribed" medications for rehabilitation. Sad as it is, tough love worked better. Lock them up each time they get caught ... then just push them back out when their time is served. The ones who want help ... give it to them, the others need to hit bottom first. ;)

    Some of the shelter workers were "recovering" addicts ... and they all had the same story, they hit bottom and had nowhere or nothing to turn to ... that's when they chose to get help seriously. The others were living in the shelter to, and they had no intention of getting or staying clean and found any way they could to abuse the system, their habit was still in charge, keeping them from caring about anything but it.
