Columbine Principal Reacts: Not Again

For a community leader in a town that still feels the wounds of the shooting at Columbine High School nearly 14 years later, the news of Friday’s mass casualties at a school in Connecticut is sickening. Principal Frank DeAngelis (pictured in AP photo), who was principal of the Littleton school at the time and remains in the position today, told CBS4 his first reaction to news of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., was “Not again.” “It just made me sick to my stomach. It just takes me back to what we felt on April 20, 1999. Even though it’s going to be 14 years, anyone that was alive during that time or in schools at that time or especially at Columbine, it just takes us back to that horrific day,” DeAngelis said/CBS Denver.
