The main attraction of course is the house itself and it one in which a family can enjoy spreading out. The combined sitting and dining room connects via an arch to an inner hall. A door off to the right gives access to the study where a further door opens to a stunning L shaped drawing room..
I’m an unlikely speaker, not just because I dropped out, but because we’re technically in the same generation. We walked this yard less than a decade apart, studied the same ideas and slept through the same Ec 10 lectures. We may have taken different paths to get here, especially if you came all the way from the Quad, but today I want to share what I’ve learned about our generation and the world we’re building together..
Eleven co workers and a contractor who was getting a permit died, four others were seriously wounded and a police officer received a bullet in his tactical vest but escaped serious injury.The shooter had submitted his resignation the same day citing “personal reasons,” but city police investigators and an independent security firm that conducted an investigation know little about what drove him to go on his rampage, despite conducting hundreds of interviews and poring over thousands of documents.The “answer to ‘why’ may be something we will never know,” city officials wrote in an April update on the probe.Nixon and other family members of victims believe they have an inkling, however: What they call a toxic workplace environment and poor management by supervisors.”I know what led to this,” said Nixon, who’s been among the most outspoken of the relatives. “It wasn’t random.”It’s a notion echoed by Debbie Borato, sister of victim Missy Langer.Langer had been harassed and bullied in the building, she said, and there was an office culture “that pushed that man over the edge.” Borato also said workplace security was lax.City officials and Hillard Heintze, a Chicago based security firm that conducted the probe, say claims of a toxic culture were not supported by the investigation.Virginia Beach Vice Mayor James Wood said he “can’t begin to understand the grief” of the victims’ families, but investigators found nothing pointing to that.”In any organization, not every single manager and employee does everything 100 percent the right way, all the time,” Wood said. “But if there was a systematic issue, if there was a problem, we would know about it.”The investigation also found no prior warning signs that might have enabled the city to prevent the shooting.Relatives told investigators Craddock had become isolated and described him as acting paranoid.
