RE: ANOTHER PUBLIC SHOOTING

Neighbors told reporters that Neal had been firing off lots of rounds at odd hours for the last few weeks and that they called police to complain.

Neal is reportedly a known felon with recent arrests for violence.

I wonder if the police responded to the reported complaints by neighbors and why they didn't take his guns (or maybe they did and he just got more --lots of guns in rural Northern California).

RE: ANOTHER PUBLIC SHOOTING

Well, according to the Sheriff, police did respond to multiple complaints from neighbors about Neal firing off rounds at all hours. The Sheriff said whenever they went to the house, Neal evaded them.

Okay.........but why didn't they get a search warrant and go back? Police knew Neal was violent and was out on bond for stabbing a neighbor, forbidden from owning guns (regardless as to whether he bought, built or stole the guns).

Too bad (yet again) the existing laws weren't enforced. If police had taken Neal's guns and revoked his bond, 5 dead people would be alive today. Frustrating.

Hats off to the elementary school librarian. When Neal rammed his truck into the school fence and tried to get in, she rushed all 100 kids into a room and put them on the floor. She put the school on lockdown before getting instruction from police. Neal kept shooting at the school for 6 minutes, until police arrived and shot him dead. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-...sage-field

Fortunately, only one student was seriously injured and he's now expected to recover. It could have been so much worse.
