MAUREEN O'CONNELL (FORMER FBI AGENT): Well, my first thought, obviously, is this is an utter tragedy like no other. But just like every one of these cases, we're going to see a parade of red flags as this investigation unfolds. We're going to see all kinds of things that should have potentially been addressed. And there are a lot of ways that they those can be addressed. There are ways to fortify schools. There are all kinds of programs that do this. The FBI has a very large public-private sector outreach program called InfraGard and that program puts on all kinds of invaluable training where we shore up classrooms. We teach teachers how to lock them down. We teach them how to identify some of these red flags before these situations happen.

 And I also think that that this anti-police narrative is forcing people not to call police when they have these type of concerns. These type of concerns have to be addressed and we have to get in front of it.
