people are commiting such violent crimes like this because the economy is down and the government dose not care about its citizens anymore.were are the good jobs for people so they can take care of their families with the neccesary funds.iam not saying what they did is right but the bad economy at times cause for acts like this. people are pushed too close to the edge.

Im a tmechs student, that high school contected to EPCC this was the most scariest thing ever, we were under lock down at 11:20 around there. we stayed under lock down till 4:00 this was one of the most shocking things to happen to me and my friends.

I live behind El Paso Community College and I stepped outside my house and I saw many law enforcement officers roaming the Millagro Hills Desert Dam. I stepped out side and I spoke with a DPS officer in an unmarked vehicle. He told me that they are looking for 2 individuals at around 20 years old. A black and hispanic male. Wearing black coats. Helicopter has been hovering around our back yard for the last 2 hours. I do not see the helicopter any more so I assume they have been arrested.502-7047
