So now we’ve moved forward in time to another school shooting, albeit still over 10 years in the past. I want you to look at the red flags, notably Cho’s mental health history.
1. Cho had a documented history of mental health problems/illnesses. When do things change over for him? Many people have mental health issues, but school shootings are a rare manifestation of these underlying problems.
2. What should have been done by Cho’s parents/school/community/government and others to prevent the violence based on his mental illness? Keep in mind his civil liberties and privacy rights.
Please use concrete examples from the reading and/or additional material that is available online from credible sources.
