About the legacy of the Columbine shootings (the ninth anniversary was in April), Izzy Kaiman asserts, "Instead of teaching our children how not to be victims, it has led to the most massive witch hunt in world history: we are going to target and eradicate bullies. . . . Individual freedoms are eroding as our country becomes a growing police state."
