|Dear PoliceOne Member,
One year ago, Adam Lanza shot his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, murdered the two unarmed school administrators who attempted to stop him, and then slaughtered 20 children and four adults. While we mourn the loss of all those who were killed, and wish our best for those who survived and live on with the trauma, we also look at Sandy Hook for lessons learned.
We examine incidents in our past not to second-guess or armchair-quarterback, but to change our strategies and tactics accordingly. Today, we carry a special series of articles by Dick Fairburn, Greg Sancier, Dan Marcou, Larry Jetmore, and myself.
I'm hopeful that we can use the past to pave a future in which no other parent or person shares their despair. In my heart I hope that’s possible. In my head I know it’s not. The question is, what are we going to do about it?
