My approach to any hot news item these days is to take a deep breath and give time for the facts to come out, before coming to an opinion.

Knowing more from all sides about what really happened between the student and the staff member, and the students' full interaction with the police, will be important to understanding this.

I look forward to more stories on this from Angela.

David B - Yours is an EXCELLENT idea.

Why is there always a rush to lay blame? Let's find out what happened. What a novel idea.
