  • 1. Violence In Schools
  • 2. Chilling Facts
    In 2005, students aged 12-18 were the victims of about 628,200 violent crimes at school, including rape, aggravated assault, and robbery.
    About 30% report being bullied, being a bully or both
    Young people who bully are more likely to smoke, drink alcohol, and get into fights.
    Middle school students are more than twice as likely as high school students to be affected by school violence.
    About 7% of eighth graders stay home at least once a month to avoid a bully.
    Approximately 22% of urban 11 and 12-year-olds know at least one person their age in a gang.
    During the past seven years, 116 students were killed in 109 separate incidents at school – an average of 16.5 student homicides each year. (14 homicides in total in Ottawa and 0 in Quebec City 2009)
    Nearly 50% of homicide perpetrators gave some type of warning signal, including making a threat or leaving a note, prior to the event.
    Most school-associated violent deaths occur during transition times – before and after the school day and during lunch.

  • 4. Myths about School Shootings
    “He did not fit the profile.”
    There are no accurate or useful profiles of students who engaged in school shootings.
    “He was a loner.”
    Most were considered in the mainstream of the student population and were active in school sports, school clubs and activities. Only one quarter of the students hung out with what was considered a “fringe group”.
    “He was crazy!”
    One third had been seen by a mental health professional, while one fifth had been diagnosed with a mental disorder. Some showed history of suicidal attempts or history of extreme depression.
    “If only we’d had a SWAT team or metal detectors.”
    Despite prompt police responses, incidents were over well before a SWAT team could have arrived. Metal detectors have not deterred students who were committed to killing themselves or others.
    “He never touched a gun.”
    Most attackers had access to weapons, and used them prior to their attacks. Most attackers acquired their guns from home.
  • 5. Kipland Kinkel
    15-year-old killed his parents, then two students in the school cafeteria, on May 21, 1998.
    Kip Kinkel wrote in his journal, "Hate drives me. ... I am so full of rage. ... Everyone is against me. ... As soon as my hope is gone, people die."
    He was expelled for bringing a gun to school
    He was later placed in psychotherapy, where he was diagnosed with clinical depression.
    Kinkel had an intense interest in firearms and explosives from an early age.
    His father bought him a 9mm glock when he was just 15 years old, his psychologist, Jeffrey Hicks, told Bill Kinkel to "let Kip have the guns, for it will be a good outlet."
    He is currently serving a 111 year sentence.
  • 6. Dylan Bennett Klebold
    he was part of the CHIPS (Challenging High Intellectual Potential Students) program for gifted and talented children.
    Transition from elementary school to middle school is difficult for many adolescents so his parents were not overly concerned.
    At Columbine Dylan was active in the school play productions as a light and sound coordinator as well as being involved in video productions
    He was also depicted by those who knew him as a young man who lacked confidence in himself - 'painfully shy', some folks said - but that he was not quick to anger.
    Just weeks before the massacre, Dylan turned in a school report that was so graphically violent that the teacher told his parents about it.
    The story was about a lone warrior clad in a trench coat who in gory detail beat, stabbed and shot to death a group of "college-preps," then set off bombs to divert the attention of the police.
