LIKE COLUMBINE HIGH SCHOOL, Sandy Hook Elementary School is housed in a typical sterile and depersonalized school building. Almost 650 children between kindergarten and fourth grade attended the school before the shooting. America sees nothing wrong with these factory-style conditions for children. Schools are as appealing as prisons, and they will become more and more like prisons as they attempt to keep out the violent predators who hate them.
And as with Columbine, the bodies of the dead children were left in the building for many hours after the shooting, in this case until late that night, so that the experts could see them from every angle. Efficiency rules.
