Review:

MUSKOGEE COUNTY SHERIFF S OFFICE Dear Friend, As the Chief Law Enforcement Officer in a rural county of 75,000 to 1 population, you sometimes feel immune from the violence of large metropolitan cities. These illusions were shattered on a bluebird morning at one of our rural schools, Fort Gibson Middle School. A sixth grader, from a higher income, middle-class family, hid a gun in his backpack and opened fire on his classmates. Five students suffered gunshot wounds. We were lucky in that all students survived the attack, but the reality of this occurrence reinforced the fact that, if it could happen here, it could happen anywhere. The State, the County, and the Community spent thousands of hours in an attempt to find cause and reason for this tragic event. The principal cause for these events in our nation normally follow typical social reasons: bullying by other students, class caste system, the haves against the have-nots, rivalry between racial or social groups, mental dysfunction, and in our case, no explainable reason other than opportunity and motivation to do something. As social scientists continue to study these tragic events, I am confident social policy will change forever. The reality is that it can and will continue to happen to us, wherever we may live. I want to congratulate the author in his attempt to provide insight to a real and frightening problem of violence in places where safety is taken for granted. Sincerely, Charles Pearson Muskogee County Sheriff --Muskogee County Sheriff's Office
