March 2005 was the deadliest month for U.S. school shootings since the 1999 Columbine High School massacre in Colorado. This time, the tragedy struck at a Minnesota high school when a teenager shot and killed nine people, including a security guard, a teacher and five students, before taking his own life--once again escalating American concerns for school safety issues and bullying prevention policies Although school districts endeavor to integrate antiviolence programs within their schools, this article argues that the problem does not stop there; it involves the entire community.
