Christopher Whitcomb '81 Contributes Op-Ed to New York Times

Christopher Whitcomb '81, a former sniper on the F.B.I's hostage rescue unit and now head of a security company, contributed an op-ed to The New York Times (4/20/07), titled "Building a Better Lockdown." In it, he questions how, despite studies, symposiums and the adoption of crisis-response protocols in the days since Columbine, a calamity like Blacksburg can happen. Whitcomb wrote: "The most obvious reason, and one that’s been widely discussed in the days since the shootings, is complacency.
