This is the story a middle school teacher, Samuel Szajkowski, who was so severely bullied by students in his classroom, that he snapped. Despite the warnings and desperate pleas for help; help never came; causing Samuel to follow through with the only option he thought he had left - to kill the offenders. During a school assembly, Samuel took out his gun and fired it several times, killing 4 students and a teacher before turning the gun on himself. This is the story of the investigation that took place following this horrible crime, and the discovery of all that COULD have been done to prevent it.
