We are learning new details now on the alleged gunman involved in the Ohio school shootings based off of Internet postings he made on FaceBook.
The postings could provide some insight into what may have brought on this violence and help protect other students potentially.
The alleged gunman his identity is not yet been confirmed by law enforcement -- other students and eyewitnesses have said who he is.
We are not reporting it until its report about law enforcement and because he is a minor.
The alleged gunman riding on his FaceBook page quote.
Now feel death not just mocking you not just stalking you but inside if you -- and ride feel smaller beneath my -- Seizure in the pestilence that is my Skype -- All of you.
-- to keep that -- is a psychiatrist and a member of our Fox News medical eighteen.
Also with me now is -- -- -- he's a senior VP at control risks security consultant he also has experience handling school safety.
And security gentlemen thank you both so much for being here -- -- lol let me start with you you -- -- take a crack at that message.
Yes listen -- I really believe that at this point one lesson here.
Is that it's okay and probably appropriate whether it's through peer counseling.
Of FaceBook profiles.
Or someone duty bound at the school.
To be receiving this information and and highlighting those very concerning messages and acting on them.
I think it's time for schools to say look maybe this is a fortunate thing that people tend to use social networking in order to then.
They're most inner demons.
We should be looking for that and ready to react to it without denying that the worst could happen.
Because he posted this on his FaceBook page and December 30.
December 30 gets -- to -- on January 20 he posted an update saying much obliged all those.
Who quote like this I've heard it myself in class one day so this has been out there.
Fact travel what is tell you I mean could you read about -- he talks about secret -- feared the dismal to rear his pain had made insincere.
He was better than the rest all those ones he did tests within their castles so -- selfish in conceded.
They couldn't care less about the peasants they -- treated.
We what are these.
-- you messages you know Megan when you're when you're in a situation -- schools a limited social environment.
The way you were treated if you're bullied or a girl won't go on a date with you.
Can seem like it's the end of your existence.
Because you get set to limited's the year of experience that what happens to you and your ranking socially there.
Seems like the end of the earth if it's very low.
I think that screening for depression is OK in schools those are simple test to get bringing back a full peer counseling program.
Monitoring these posts someone should have acted on that and brought this kid in and said what's happening with you.
I'm gonna get the bill was -- but I wanna ask another question back Revlon that is.
How do you feel like his harassed ostracized and bullied and don't you know -- -- relationships and sought.
And they don't do this and the stats are much more in favor of your kids safe at school -- they are in favor of he's not.
But how what's the difference I mean what's the difference -- -- kid who goes through all that and is normal in a kid who goes all that does this.
Well at minimum -- and it is people who express.
That they're not coping this young man did that he said.
Look this is what I'm feeling inside I had schools come to me for instance with a young man who had made a cemetery.
And put the names of kids on the tombstones.
In art class and they said should -- be in school.
As it well I don't even feel comfortable charging you for this no.
Right we've got to get over that hurdle and believe that the worst can happen and act on it.
Bell I'm a start -- -- going to carry you over the break -- -- wanna get into this but I want to ask you.
You know whether we can protect our kids as we kept -- -- magnetometer set every school this this is a public school didn't have it.
What should we be -- Well as big as the doctor said in the first line defenses this monitoring and we've seen -- before in other cases where.
People have a -- children have posted information out there had a time.
That's really telegraph what they're about ready to do so I think that monitoring of the intervention is key I think the second thing is there is an element Megan about.
Security around the school now and in some high.
Threat or risk areas and inner cities they do do magnetometer is but and other places having somebody visible and endorsing with a someone's carrying something and that seems to be suspicious right cut out a vehicle that -- -- -- -- heartbreak -- bring -- -- and I'm gonna ask you.
When you're faced with the gunman.
Whether there's anything we can tell our kids to -- we'll be right back.
They'll tell you one of the victims here was.
Hiding underneath -- cafeteria table because he knew it was about to be targeted and shot it said that he was dating the girlfriend the ex girlfriend of the shooter.
What do you tell your kid to do if the worst comes to worse.
You know Megan if -- office -- -- -- asked about Weathers in the workplace a school place at a table have told my of my own family and that is.
If you have an opportunity to get out of that situation we -- to pass the the attacker we can become less of a target.
Let's off to a -- oral or what have thru window you take that opportunity.
If for some reason your holed up in a room that doesn't give that opportunity then you have the -- -- and try to become a low target hit the ground and be very low.
This whole issue of whether -- -- are evacuees are very personal decision whether you're an adult or you're you're at a juvenile.
But for them to be at least told by their parents that these that they need to be considering you need to take some quick action.
And you get up harm's way if you can if not you have to take your chances and and hunker down.
I -- as a practical matter can -- -- it.
And I know some of these kids go through weapons training and so on in their spare time -- -- it should you have your kid assuming that this is not going to be an expert marksman.
And that may be you making a run for it is your best course.
-- -- -- any of these cases -- have to assume that this this talent coming in.
Is a himself you know at a moment of heightened sensitivity with the adrenaline is flowing he's there he has a certain agenda or whatever that agenda might be psychologically.
But however you know he's not going to be thinking is if he's a paid a -- you no matter how good -- shot this person is sort of thing is.
More you can get out of -- -- harm's way keep moving.
Get out of the way of a line of fire at the Betty -- that's my view fact travel we did our some research on this.
The school shootings are very rare in 200809 school year just eight shooting deaths between -- and twelve elementary secondary.
All over the country it's basically the odds of once in almost 141000 years each school faces.
If you do the -- how does a fan out of the families had families across the nation get the -- this wondering if you know it could happen.
Well I think what you've just done Megan is step one number one it's extraordinarily rare.
Secondly arm yourself with what you can do you can be proactive and I think that this is one message to -- -- to take home message.
For every student every teacher.
At those moments where something catches you -- miss a statement.
Don't feel that you can't -- a parent or a principal or someone else to elevate the level of the threat do something.
Do something -- -- -- daily absolutely thank you both so much.
