In today’s crazy world, everyone is a suspect

I am writing in regard to the recent school shooting in Colorado. As if students weren’t already traumatized enough, “Arapahoe High students were seen walking toward the school’s running track with their hands in the air, and television footage showed students being patted down. Robinson said deputies wanted to make sure there were no other conspirators.”

This is just another example of what John W. Whitehead describes as “the criminalization of America’s schoolchildren.” We are all suspects in “a government of wolves!”
