This happens only in America: Student goes on a shooting spree in school

OPINION: The Michigan school shooting is not an isolated case. It is the 32nd such incident in just four months in the US, immediately available data shows. What does it mean! It is a damning exposé of a gun culture and a false sense of freedom on which America is founded.** Obama had paid lip service to the issue of gun control and now it is Biden's turn. But can the fundamentals change, especially when that is also the base of the economy?

That fateful day, Ethan's parents were called to the school and told that their son was exhibiting warning signs of violence in the class, and were asked to take him out. They refused. In fact, his father had taken him to a store and bought the gun for him four days before the incident as an early Christmas gift and his mother had taken him to a shooting range the next day for practice, and told him the day before the shooting, "You have to learn (how) not to get caught!"

DETROIT (Michigan), Dec 4: The parents of the student, Ethan Crumbley, who came to his Oxford High School in a Detroit suburb with a gun and fired all around indiscriminately last Tuesday killing four students, were arrested after a manhunt from a building in Detroit city early Saturday.

James and Jennifer Crumbley, who were on the run, were found on the first floor of an industrial building after the police found their car parked nearby. They were charged with involuntary manslaughter for the shooting by their 15-year-old son killing four students and wounding seven others at the school. The Crumbleys were transferred to Oakland County Jail, where their son is also being detained. A reward of $10,000 was announced for any leads for their arrest.

It was on November 30, Ethan opened fire on students and staff at the Oxford High School in the Detroit exurb of Oxford Township, Michigan, killing four students and injuring seven others, including a teacher. The students who were killed were Madisyn Baldwin (17), Tate Myre (16), Hana St. Juliana (14) and Justin Shilling (17).

According to Karen McDonald, the prosecutor who is leading the case, quoted by CNN, James Crumbley had bought the gun on November 26, four days before the shooting took place, from a store accompanied by his son. Ethan later posted a picture on Instagram and captioned it, "Just got my new beauty today. SIG SAUER 9mm" with a heart-eyes emoji. And the father too posted on social media, "his new Christmas present." His mother also took him to a shooting range last weekend after buying the gun for practice, and told him the day before the shooting, "You have to learn (how) not to get caught!"

The day before the shooting a teacher saw Ethan searching ammunition on his phone and reported it to school officials and the parents were also informed. The mother in turn told her son, "You have to learn not to get caught."

On the day of shooting, Ethan had a drawing that showed a semiautomatic handgun pointing at the words, "The thoughts won't stop. Help me," "Blood Everywhere," "My life is useless" and "The world is dead," a teacher found. Below the drawing is a drawing of a laughing emoji.

The parents were called to the school after finding these warning signs, but they refused to take their son out of the school. Later, Ethan began shooting at students.

The shooting was the deadliest at a school campus since 2018 and the 32nd such attack since August 1.

**On an average, American civilians buy 25 million firearms in a year, much more than the combined stockpile of all the armed forces across the world. The origin of the gun culture is associated with a revolutionary past, and the Second Amendment to the Constitution further guarantees unbridled freedom for individuals to possess firearms.
