Link.

Local media reports in Huntsville say the shooting happened after Prof Bishop found out she had been denied academic tenure, which guarantees job security.


What a shocking waste of human lives.

Gun culture seems to be way of life for some people in America, so, unfortunately, these sort of massacres will surely continue.

It certainly makes no sense for Prof. Bishop to shoot the department head and the others when she did not get tenure. It isn't as if she would improve her situation by doing so.:(

The radio news reported that she was saying she couldn't believe it had really happened.

That's the problem, nutters like her have easy access to guns and horrific incidents like this happen.
