Bobby Gladden needed help earlier

September 03, 2012

I agree wholeheartedly with Susan Reimer ("Failing Bobby," Aug. 30) that the situation with the alleged Perry Hall shooter Robert Wayne Gladden Jr. is so sad. Being a nurse and employed in psychiatric care for a number of years, I know we missed the boat on this one. Bobby was trying to let someone know by his actions that he was in trouble. All the bells and whistles were there. I certainly hope now that he can get the proper treatment. My prayers are with both families.

It would also help if there some type of policy for uniforms or a standard dress code. On the day of that disaster you could not identify any of the students from anyone else. Thank God no one else was involved.
