More Spin and Deception: Michigan’s Attorney General Blasts Oxford School Officials


Daily Beast: Michigan’s attorney general took a jab at Oxford school officials after she said they turned down her offer for an independent review of last week’s deadly shooting.

In an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon late Monday, Dana Nessel said she was “disappointed” to learn that the Oxford School District had opted to hire a private security firm rather than use the attorney general’s office to review the school’s handling of events leading up to the attack.

Four students were killed and several more were injured in the shooting at Oxford High School last week, and questions have swirled about whether the school could have done more to stop the accused 15-year-old gunman.

The school said they were planning to launch a third-party review. “I thought, ‘What better agency to conduct a special review than the Michigan Department of Attorney General?’” Nessel said, adding that “we learned, just a short while ago, that the school district has turned down our offer.”

She made no attempt to hide her frustration, saying she hoped the “school district cares as much about the safety of their students as they do shielding themselves from civil liability.”

  1. I told you it was coming.

    Terrorists using minors, with “Get Outta Jail Free” Notes:

    “The thoughts won’t stop, help me.”

    The onus on already overworked, underpaid teachers to catch. NOW WITH CRIMINAL LIABILITY.

    Mass resignations coming…

  2. I’m a teacher in a high school of about 1500 students. The student population is mostly hispanic and we have our share of gang-bangers, too. The first thing that our principal would do in a case like this is to call security. They would do a search of the student’s backpack. The gun would have been found. Simple as that.

    • Would the cause for search be the image , or the ammo search on the internet ?
      If searching for ammo, is grounds for search and seizure, I might be ok with that, as long as the rate of searches does not spill over into all kinds of banality, because that is Tyranny.

      I think the focus of this case needs to stay on the parents, unless we as a country want to equate the schools with parenting….do children fall under the responsibility of the parent or the school ? If people say the school, they need to think that one through and see where it goes. We could be looking at increasing numbers of people losing custody of their children to the state, due to fear. We must not allow fear to rule us.

    • In matters of security, I see most teachers as fully indoctrinated systemic proponents of power of state over people. If we cut off the mandatory time children have to attend school, at 10 years old, that is when the Father of American literature quit, and that is a better way to ensure that, children who do not want to be there, do not have to be there. A HS diploma is not worth a plug nickel, and college is a good idea for about 25% at most.
      It would also reduce the number of teachers we need, and I would say a good 50% of those are not very good at teaching much of anything. I would double the pay, and reduce the volume. Trade schools are the way to go,.

    • Searching a student’s backpack is just standard procedure, David. Just like in some bigger schools they must pass through a metal detector to enter campus, a student must submit his backpack to be searched, period.

  3. My question would be, how many students display the red flags we know of so far before the shooting, on a daily basis ? The imagery of zombies, monsters, War, and death, and guns,… fill the airwaves 24 /7.
    What does the artwork look like across the spectrum of teenagers these days ?

    There was this incident not long ago,.. 10 year old girl arrested for picture.
    ““She didn’t bring any any weapons to school, she didn’t make any explicit threats to anyone.”
    “The ACLU and an attorney for the family says the 10-year-old girl’s rights were violated when she was detained and questioned without her mom.
    She was then handcuffed and brought to jail without being charged with a crime, the ACLU said.”

    • School administrators were well within their rights to search this crazy dude’s locker and backpack before they sent him back to class. Why didn’t they do that, Dave?

    • It is always hindsight that tons of things could have been done to stop tragedy. The issue is, are we going to end up with random searches, expelling students for pictures, maybe armed guards with razor wire around the schools, teachers carrying guns, censorship of art that contains violence, constant counseling (creates extra expenditures), stress on teachers doing things that is not what they were hired for,..constant lawsuits, ..diminishing quality of teachers due to working conditions,…and taxes going up and up,….because people want guns and more guns. All the measures and precautions would be ineffective. We are a violent culture, and we are non conducive to public education that works.
