More Acts of School Violence "Inevitable"

Colorado's Attorney General says more acts of school violence are inevitable.

John Suthers spoke to about 140 police officers and educators Monday during the Safe Communities-Safe Schools Conference in Westminster.

Suthers says Colorado schools are typically safe. He says children are twice as likely to be victimized at home than at school, and three times more likely to be hurt after school.

However -- Suthers says school officials and police need to prepare for the worst.

He urged schools to have information-sharing agreements with social services, law enforcement, mental health agencies and the juvenile justice system.

Suthers says school violence is a real problem, and that there will be more incidents of such violence in the United States -- and possibly in Colorado.
