    I know they were unlikely to be from Oxford- but the idea of having that shirt on when you are part of an active shooting on a campus, as you say.... This state hasn't gotten over that, and now another campus shooting.

    The governor looked exhausted this morning- one is too many.
    I figured that’s what you meant. Just wanted to clarify. But, Oxford is a big school so there’s probably 40+ kids at MSU who went through the shooting last year.

    Parkland was five years ago today. There’s a good chance there’s at least one student going to MSU. There’s one Sandy Hook survivor who’s at MSU right now as well.

    Not to be pedantic, but there were many, many fundraisers across the state that sold those shirts. It’s probably more likely than not that those wearing them are not from Oxford. Still, a reminder of how common this has become.

    Saw more than one "Oxford Strong" shirt among the students last night. Jesus...

    I thought about posting "spartan strong" last night, but it seems so hollow anymore.

    And if you really had thoughts and prayers, you have to point out that it's real as opposed to just saying it.

    But there is certainly support for MSU across the state.

    It’s interesting this is the fourth high profile incident in the last month or so involving older(or at least not young) folks. Not quite sure what to make of that.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah. People are dead or in the hospital and the shooter killed himself, but no one is asking the important question: is the gun OK?

    The press conference we saw this morning stressed a few things- the quick response of the police and how quickly they got a tip of the suspect once the picture was put up. The time frame of the latter was 11pm release and 11:30 they found him.

    And it will be interesting to learn more of the 43 year old shooter who, on the surface, had no connection to MSU. The randomness is very jarring. And without a doubt, campus will also be on edge down here in Ann Arbor.

    We saw that classes are canceled until Monday, too.

    I hate that one of the first thoughts through my head was "at least it's only 3 people". Have I become so numb to these shootings that those 3 lives and the 5 hospitalized victims isn't enough to have me outraged? I am outraged. I am glad the body count isn't higher. I don't want to accept that these kinds of things just happen.
    How and when is this country going to change?
    Two shootings now that hit a bit closer to home for me (cousin's kid was a senior at Oxford during that shooting, and too many friends and family that went to, go to, work at State). I'm fortunate that no one I know and love has been murdered, but we should all be that fortunate. No one should worry about if their kid will come home from school or not.

    Suspect is 43 years old with no known connection to the university. He was only a mile from home when the police found him thanks to a tip after they released the photo.

    I saw a picture of some of the kids and one was wearing a damn Oxford Strong sweatshirt. Jesus man.

    There's video of him passing by a frat house that's on the way to the location where he killed himself. It takes about half the time to get to that location than when he finally got there, so it appears he was doing some ducking and diving given he left north out of the building that's already on the north part of campus. So he was gone from campus by the time any response would've arrived.
