Saugus High School

The School District failed in its duty according to an attorney who represents the victims of shootings. “One could understand if this was an isolated event, but this is not the first school shooting.” He continues, “The School Board should have put the children and their safety first. They failed in their duty; the buck literally stops with them. Why wasn’t prevention their priority?

Slaten wrote, “I represent over 150 of the Route 91 (Las Vegas) shooting victims. I also represent the owner of Borderline (Thousand Oaks) where there was a mass shooting. Over a year ago, a company (I am a partner of) went to Hart School Board (where today’s shooting is located) and presented an active shooter preparedness plan. They took no action. We obtained via a FOIA request internal school board emails where they said “let it die” with regards to our proposal.”
