Seeing School Shooting Sites Up Close Yields Lessons, But Takes A Toll

After almost any act of violence, be it a suicide or a mass school shooting, people ask questions, which usually boil down these questions: How could we have prevented this from happening? How can we keep it from happening again?

Dr. Malcolm Smith has spent a great deal of time examining those very questions. He's an associate extension professor at the University of New Hampshire in youth and family education policy. He’s also a  member of what’s known as the National Crisis Response Team, and has examined the sites of numerous school shootings, including Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut.

He talks with All Things Considered host Brady Carlson.
