He wasn't a loner. Neither was he a scapegoat, a bad student or even, at least to outside appearances, a child in any distress at all. Though he doesn't fit the labels appended to other perpetrators of school violence, yet another public school student opened fire Monday on his classmates--this time in Fort Gibson, Okla.
