To the speculators, politicizers and agenda-pushers

09.13.06

I’ve been surfing some of the other blogs to see what’s up there about today’s shootings at Dawson, and the comments sections are making my head spin. I realize some of you may be first-time visitors, and I’m sorry for doing this, but I need to rant:

To everyone out there trying to use today’s shooting at Dawson to further their own political agenda, whether it concerns gun registries or separatism or mideast politics or Michael Moore or law enforcement funding or student psychological services or the price of tea in India…

Please, please, can you give it a rest?

We don’t know the motive of the shooter or shooters. We don’t know the condition of the victims. We don’t know what it all means. In all likelihood, this was a senseless tragedy, with no-one to blame but the shooters and no agenda to push besides trying to help everyone cope as best as we can.

When we know more, then you can spin the facts all you like. I might even read it.

But in the meantime, please, everyone, take a breath. Thank you.
