Massacre at Elementary School in USA
 
I was watching this story develop on the news and initially I thought it was just 1 person dead, the shooter


then i see reports that at least 100 rounds were fired


and now its said that 20 have been killed and at least 10 are children :/



that's just so fucked up....



flip on any news channel to see

Once every what 2-3 weeks now?

As much as I believe in personal freedom, and find our gun laws to be archaic, I think if the US is the example of what happens with that freedom, I'll keep Canada gun free.

I think this is a fine example of what happens when you have a middle class that is eroding. On a fundamental level, people feel they have less and less to "live" for.

My heart goes out to the family of those involved, and the community in which the school stands.

Let the bodies hit the floor

Shit is only going to go downhill from here, guns or not fucking phsycos are becoming more prevalent in the society we live in today, and when you just stop caring about a single fucking thing why not take some people with you

My theory, based on zero reading whatsoever...the social net that supports these people has been so squeezed that their supports have eroded. Drugs are ever increasing in supply, and decreasing in cost, the middle class is no longer a powerful block of money and aspiration, need I continue?

When people feel there is no hope, then they literally do not care.

I blame the mix of abundant anti depressants, guns, and stupidity.

"At least 18 children dead".

What a horrendous headline to read. I feel gutted.

StylinRed 12-14-2012 09:31 AM

a child witness said he saw a guy pinned and handcuffed to the floor, if that was the shooter... did the police kill him :crazy2:

In the bigger picture though, 21,000 children die a day because people don't want to feed them

maybe that's who the kid saw



yeah cnn says a 2nd person is in custody being questioned :/

InvisibleSoul 12-14-2012 09:45 AM

If there are actually 27 dead, this would be the 4th worst shooting in the last 50 years.

dinosaur 12-14-2012 09:49 AM

CBC anchor just ask if this was terrorism...spokesman said, "no".

Interesting how 'terrorism' is no longer defined "systematic use of terror, often violent", but rather an Islamic backed attack.

For shame.

Acura604 12-14-2012 09:49 AM

sickening. as a parent, i have no words but can only express frustration and anguish.

Phozy 12-14-2012 09:57 AM

My school just made an anouncement about it right after this thread was made.

Its one thing for natural disasters to kill, but for someone to intentionally go in...

Rest in peace kids
