    Didn't read the article but from the headline I have to say I agree with him. I condemn the professor the professor that thinks it was a false flag event using actors as well.

    That guy is a loon and should be fired from the University. I know I wouldn't want my tuition paying kid listening to his personal paranoia. You can do that for free on the internet any day.

    If all the college professors with outrageous theories were fired the colleges would all be closed.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    It wasn't me, it was someone pretending to be me! He does it all the time. He's out to get me and make me look paranoid!

    That's twice I've caught him doing this! If it keeps up I'm going to get a little paranoid.

    While I agree that the professor is a loon, I still have questions about what actually happened. It isn't all clear, at least to me.

    I'm not saying it didn't happen, but I'm just not so sure we know what actually happened. Or why it happened.

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Well just as an example, look low long it took before there were any official findings for Columbine. It took a year before the sheriff's office released their report and then reviews and other reports took a year or more on top of that. Sifting through all the minute details takes a lot of manpower and a lot of time.

    They can do it right or they can do it fast, but they can't do both.

    This guy reminds me of several of my tenured profs.

    No disrespect intended towards Retsupt, and other respected scholars here, but academics don't always attract the best and brightest.
