: Pinellas County
. Pinellas Park High School
-- two students in the cafeteria
s fatally shoot an assistant principal
and wound another teacher
and a student teacher
school officials would block distribution of a
containing the account of events.) Didn't even make the national news

(though that casualties were so relatively light was pure luck). School violence
is not new; it's only newly bloody enough to make the news.
