Blame is the immediate response and it's something CNN and FOXNews are blabbing about. It's a very unique situation and something nobody can plan for.
I totally agree. It's no ones fault but the killers. That is a huge campus. If someone in Lexington killed someone real close to campus at 7am...you don't lock down the campus. If someone kills a person or persons just on campus at 7am you don't lock down the campus. On north campus at UK there is a McDonalds 200 feet from a dorm. The dorm is on campus and the McDonalds is not. If someone was shot at the McDonalds no one on campus would even know about it until your watched the evening news. The cops thought, and rightfully so this was a domistic killing. It was over, the killer was on the run, not planning to wait 2 hours and then kill and injure another 50 people.
Everybody was in transit to campus at 7am, including 10,000 employees. I say it was safer to let them get to work or class and then lock it down rather to allow them to park, walk to class or work, then have them walk back to their car or dorm.
It's a horrible situation. It's not the administrations fault.
