Internal messages from news station WDBJ7 have revealed that the gunman who killed his former colleagues yesterday had been ‘aggressive’ at work.

    It sounds like the employer did everything right in this case, but still did not avert tragedy. I feel very badly for all the families involved...especially Flanagan's.

    Here is the deal...HR does not have the legal right to instruct - or in this case, prescribe medical treatment. HR is not a recognised medical practitioner. If, there was medical insurance coverage then HR had the right to express their concerns to the insurance company who in turn, could have used the medical coverage to have this person placed under medical care. Concurrently, the employer should have called the police and express their concern of potential violence. HR failed big time on this matter.
