Circumstances surrounding the Oakland County school shooting continue to get even crazier now school officials are in hot water.
Oakland County, Michigan prosecutor Karen McDonald announced that Oxford High School officials may also be charged.
McDonald didn’t go into details but a letter explains what occurred in the school on the day of the shooting and it raises questions over how administrators handled the events.
The letter was written by Oxford Community Schools superintendent Tim Thorne who was clearly trying to cover the schools rear end. The letter only raised more questions than answers and explains why the prosecutor will be investigating schools officials.
“On the morning of Nov. 30, a teacher observed concerning drawings and written statements that have been detailed in media reports, which the teacher reported to school counselors and the Dean of students. The student was immediately removed from the classroom and brought to the guidance counselor’s office where he claimed the drawing was part of a video game he was designing and informed counselors that he planned to pursue video game design as a career,” the letter states.
“At no time did counselors believe the student might harm others based on his behavior, responses and demeanor, which appeared calm. In addition, despite media reports, whether or not the gun was in his backpack has not been confirmed by law enforcement to our knowledge nor by our investigation at this time,” the letter continued.
“While we understand this decision has caused anger, confusion and prompted understandable questioning, the counselors made a judgment based on their professional training and clinical experience and did not have all the facts we now know. Our counselors are deeply committed longstanding school members who have dedicated their lives to supporting students and addressing student mental health and behavioral issues,” the letter continued.
