Everyone is calling what happened at Aurora a tragedy. I call it incompetence. The UPS driver who delivered so many packages to a certain address should have alerted the FBI who could examine some packages before they were delivered. If it was discovered that they held paint, brushes and canvas – no harm done. But if guns and ammo were found, far more investigation would take place.
No one knows where the next clue will come from. Remember the Penn State tragedy and don’t just say, “It’s none of my business.”
When will we stop looking the other way? Aurora didn’t have to happen. Penn State didn’t have to lose its reputation if everyone was alert and willing to do something.
