School shooting, 27 people dead Dec. 14th, 2012 @ 01:09 PM Reply

I was just recently reading about a school shooting survivor on reddit and then I saw on the TV what people say "could be the worst school shooting in history" or in the USA.

Here's a news article.

It seems like not much is known about this currently, but there will probably be some more information soon.
Opinions, NG?

I'm watching this on the news right now. People are fucked up. It's weird to think about how you can get killed in the blink of an eye, for absolutely no reason.

Hmm, can't find much about this on Wikipedia, can only find it mentioned right here.

Yes, and when you look at the article I've linked above it seems like there have been lots of school shootings this year. Still it's almost not like the media cares, and then how are they going to be prevented?

I don't think there's a way to prevent them. Somehow, kids can get there hands on guns so easily. To be honest, kids can get there hands on anything.

How? I haven't a clue.

The media will blow this out of proportion as soon as they find a scapegoat.

Regardless, 27 people as of right now are dead and this is just shitty.

Yeah the media is digging in this incident. But its still tragic. My heart goes out to the victims and their families.


HEY BOO!!!

This is gonna open the floodgates. Next up students will need ID badges to get into school.

As for gun laws? That's up for debate. Obama is pretty much the most gun-friendly democrat ever but this will likely end up being the worst mass shooting ever.

I think you should have to go through a metal detector, or something of that nature before you walk into the building. They did that at my sisters highschool, but her school was a school for hardasses. She got kicked out of my highschool for bringing alcohol. Why the fuck would she do that, she couldn't wait until she got home to have a drink? Or atleast she could of drank it before school. Shes been graduated for 3 years now though. ANYWAY, we need some sort of metal detectors installed.

RIP to everybody that was killed.

People never run out of ways to make me feel sick. One of the gunmen is dead, the other one is in police custody. Hope they torture the bastard.

If you're so righteous, why suggest torturing a man? Doesn't that make you sick?

People aren't born fucked up and without getting into a massive discussion about this though murder is never justified in any circumstance a lot could have happened to those men to lead them to the events that followed. This is preventable. A few years ago I thought of columbine. I even told my counselor and got reported because of it.

School was and even though I haven't been back for awhile still is very hard for some people. You're forced to go to a place full of people who say terrible things to you day in and day out while no one takes you seriously.

One of the reasons these things continue to happen is because of people like you who just go "People are so fucked up" without questioning why people do these atrocious acts. Sure, it's safe to think that you could never imagine what it's like to think like a killer or a rapist or someone of that nature but we need to grow the fuck up and investigate what makes people this way and how we can prevent it.

Again, it's bears repeating; I don't condone columbine or even think it's at all ok on a personal level, no exceptions. Please try to see where I'm coming from.

Not really, as this is normally applied after kids make shootings, not adults.

R.I.P. to those involved, especially the 18 children.


Fun to play with, even better to eat.

What I don't want to happen. With this tragic incident, is a political rally for gun control. We need to focus on making the schools safer. For the kids and the teachers, getting rid of guns won't solve the problem. Guns, unforgettably will be around even if we do try to ban them. What, we need. Is better security. Metal Detectors, background checks. A plan so this will never happen again!

Maybe, but this man shot and killed 27 people, 18 of them children, and has traumatised a huge amount of other people. I'm suggesting he gets tortured. As sick as I may sound, I don't think it even comes close to what he did.

The Wikipedia article is growing bigger and bigger for every minute right now.

The people he killed will remain dead though. It would just be wasted money.

It doesn't cost much to hit someone with a baseball bat. However, I suppose a lifetime in jail would be the more humane option.

If he's dead, at least it'll keep him from killing more people.

That or use him as a part of a research to find cure for AIDS.

Treating humanely the inhumane; a strange thinking when you think about it.

I think the old school ways is best:

Drop him in the middle of the ocean on a single wooden raft with a hook, line, and pail. If he survives and escapes, then he's free. If he survives and is caught later down in the road, then he spends the remainder of his life in jail and doing free labor.

Actually in cases like this, people will go, "Oh, this guy must have been bullied, those people he killed are assholes, they deserve to die lol, we'll worship him as a martyr and we'll follow him for eternity, SIEL HEIL!" or something like that. They do this all the freaking time.

Yeah like the columbine massacre and how doom and wolfenstein were blamed. This is a serious matter though and is pretty sad, but i can't help but wonder is this worse or the columbine massacre?

It's fucking disgusting. He went into a school with the sole reasons of shooting children.

What the fuck? I'm fucking filled with rage, and I feel worse because there is literally nothing I can do about it except complain on the internet.

And then killing himself? Sweet fuck. He was the most cowardly of cowards. He isn't worth being part of the dirt he will become.

Not like he's the only one, the bastard who shot up the mall in Oregon did the same thing. Come to think of it, nearly all the schools hooter killed themselves.

They'll get their comeuppance in hell anyway.
