And Oregon is not alone.

Because of this, Joyce Carol Oates' decision to use Fioccos' death as a fictional basis was ethical. The sad story is still mostly a mystery because of the ongoing investigation, and both the police and autopsy report were withheld from the public.

But when it’s a whole state that is hit, that’s something that is a sad truth for every incident of this nature. School shootings are happening more and more than of lately. Ever since Columbine, a high school shooting involving two gunmen and thirteen students killed, it seems this was so similar to Pandora’s Box; now that it’s been opened, its bringing chaos.
