I was wondering what was going on there. About 3:00 p.m. on my way home from work, the police were shutting down access to that road that goes to NVCC and the high school. I just figured there was an accident on that road. I did notice two helicopters hovering over the scene and just thought it was a bad one.

My son and I were getting our hair cut when it came on CNN.

Even with all of the traffic and social pressures this area has to deal with, I've always had the pre-conceived notion that NOVA is pretty sane compared to the rest of the US. Guess not.

Anyone want to take bets on whether he went to Westfield?

This kind of thing happened in the past, but I bet at least half of these modern incidents wouldn't have happened if not for the news networks giving endless attention to anyone that does this.

Hard to imagine that a Westfield graduate would be attending NVCC classes on the Woodbridge campus, but anything is possible...

I wouldn't say a single 20-year old mental case represents a whole region. Anyway, sad story in so many ways. I hear the teacher was a hero, I hope this incident doesn't keep her from wanting to teach any more. We need people like that in our schools.
