Man Stabs 22 Children In China: Authorities
December 14, 2012, 10:11pm

BEIJING (AFP) – A man stabbed 22 primary school students in a knife attack in China on Friday, officials said, the latest in a series of assaults.

The attacker "has been detained", said a spokesman for the Guangshan county government in the central province of Henan, where the stabbing happened.

"Twenty-two elementary school students were stabbed, so was an adult villager" but none of the victims died, the official, who declined to give his name, told AFP.

The state-run China News Service said a man attacked the students with a knife outside an elementary school, resulting in injuries which were "not life threatening". It did not give the children's exact ages.

China has seen several violent attacks against children over the past two years, including a spate of five incidents in 2010 which killed 15 children and two adults and wounded more than 80.

The assaults have forced authorities to increase security around schools and led to calls for more research into their root causes.

Violent crime has been on the rise in China in recent decades as the nation's economy has boomed and the gap between rich and poor has expanded rapidly.

Studies have also described a rise in the prevalence of mental disorders, some of them linked to stress as the pace of life becomes faster and socialist support systems wither.

But authorities say that murder, which carries the death penalty, remains far less common than in most Western countries.



And the one you all have probably heard about.

20 children among 26 victims of Connecticut school shooting

Newtown, Connecticut (CNN) -- In one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history, a gunman opened fire Friday in a Connecticut elementary school, killing 26 people -- 20 of them children, police said.

The suspected gunman, who was not identified by police, also was killed.

The mass shootings occurred in one section of Sandy Hook Elementary School and spanned two rooms, said Lt. Paul Vance of the Connecticut State Police.

The mother of the suspected shooter, who was a teacher at the school, appeared to be the primary target, a federal law enforcement source said. The mother was among those killed.

Also among the dead were the school's principal and psychologist, according to a parent who was at the school when the incident happened.

Separately, another adult was found dead in a second location in Newtown, Vance said. A senior law enforcement official familiar with the investigation told CNN the suspect's brother was found dead at a residence.
One person was wounded.

"Why? Why?" one woman wailed as she walked up a wooded roadway leading from the school.

Police recovered three weapons from the scene: a semi-automatic .223 Bushmaster, a Glock and a Sig Sauer, a source with knowledge of the investigation said. It's unclear whether police killed the suspect.

Police were questioning another man but are not calling him a suspect, a source with knowledge of the investigation told CNN.

President Barack Obama addressed the shooting in an emotional statement Friday afternoon, saying, "Our hearts our broken today." Obama, a father to two girls, wiped away tears as he noted the nation has "endured too many of these tragedies in the past few years."

Despite the danger being past, federal officers in tactical gear were on the scene Friday afternoon, coordinating with state and local authorities. At least four ambulances remained at the school.

'I hope my mom is ok': Tweets from the Connecticut school shooting

Hospital officials in neighboring Danbury said they were treating three people wounded in the shooting. Mayor Mark Boughton said the victims were in "very serious" condition.

Police and teachers rushed students from the building as police swarmed the area shortly after the first calls came in, around 9:40 a.m. ET. Officials moved students to a nearby firehouse, where parents frantically sought information about their children.

Third-grader Alexis Wasik said police and teachers barged into her classroom and told students to hide in the corner.

"Everybody was crying," she said. "And I just heard the police officers yelling."

Other officers, some in tactical gear, stood around the school with guns drawn, CNN affiliate WFSB reported.
'It doesn't seem possible' -- parents shocked by school shooting

All schools in the city were on lockdown Friday as police assessed the situation, Vance said.

Gov. Dannel Malloy is "horrified" by what happened, a spokesman said. Malloy was meeting with families Friday afternoon, the spokesman said.

Obama ordered flags to half-staff nationwide in tribute to the victims.

If the number of fatalities holds up, the Newtown shooting would be the second-deadliest school shooting in U.S. history, behind only the 2007 shooting at Virginia Tech that left 32 people dead.

In 1999, at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, two students shot 13 people to death before killing themselves.

What can one say when these type of troubled humans carry out horrible and despicable acts.

I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Why couldn't he open fire in the US Congress instead? No, I agree 93 - but just think of all the hostility or anger a person like this has to carry around before they explode?

It would have kicked started the imminent revolution.

I can't imagine being that angry... you wonder if there were signs or warnings.. but then again, we probably would have hundreds of thousands of "patients" in care facilities if every depressed or angry person was reported for help.

The most dangerous people in this world are people with implosive anger. They are ticking timebombs. Anger management should be taught in our schools. But it seems the only people that get help that way are people who commit assault crimes. People who haul off and hit somebody are releasing their anger but are too cheap to buy a heavy bag.

There are 300+ million people in the USA. There are 1.5+ billion people in the PRC.

To be honest, given the stresses of a fast-paced world where tomorrow is outdated before it becomes today, and people are inundated by 3,000 (or 30,000) messages a day. I'm surprised that spree killings don't happen more often.

Doesn't make these any less sad, of course. Elementary schools, for heaven's sake. Breaking in a shopping mall, or a public place, or a street corner, or even in a suburban high school like Columbine, all those I can sort of understand. (Not justify, mind you, only understand how it might come to happen.) But what makes someone walk into an elementary school? That is so profoundly wrong on so many levels.

Sad. Just profoundly sad.


None of the above. It wouldn't have been a wasted vote. Obama and Romney -- Those were the wasted votes.

Well, O'Reilly says it is just pure and simple - evil, so that will be the right wing opinion - and the Ed Show is demanding gun control. Brick wall

Maybe, just maybe, we should mourn a little bit first.

I spent the better part of two years worrying myself sick over the thought of losing one of my kids. I just can't imagine what these twenty some families are going through tonight and for the rest of their lives.

I went to elementary school at Sandy Hook, I also went there with the shooter, I always knew he was really fucked up, he would bully the autistic kids and make them cry when we went to school together. I was right down the street from it, picking my little brother up from the highschool early for a doctor's appointment...waiting in the front of the school i could hear the gunshots from there... the vigil last night was unbelievable, and my very good friend who was a first responder has been bawling his eyes out since he walked out of the school.

I've heard already that Obama is spouting about "gun control" as well.
Funny thing is.....only law abiding citizens are affected by stronger gun control laws. The criminals will obey gun control laws like they obey all other laws. In other words, ignore them.

Think about this: Had a "right to carry" person been there, they may have been able to stop this animal before he finished his killing spree. Cops got there as fast as they could, but it wasn't fast enough. Only someone already there could have stopped this scum bag.

I wish he would have killed himself FIRST, and not slaughtered all these innocent kids and adults.

At least he won't be able to get off on a "temporary insanithy" plea.

I pray for all the families affected by this worthless piece of crap.

This town has come together unbelievably. Usually it's full of people who wouldnt give you the time of day, these people have become nicer than ive ever seen in newtown.

Everywhere you go it is silent...supermarket, gas station, restaraunts.

The westboro baptist church also had one of our churches evacuated tonight during a vigil because they threatened to bomb the church. I was driving home from class tonight and saw one of them walking home with a picket sign with a beaten bloody face. He deserved it.
thanks Post received 2 applause.

Those are NOT Christian people.
They make REAL Christians sick with the things they do in "Gods" name.
They will also pay for their sins that they commit here.

It's also a shame that it takes a tradgedy to bring people together. Maybe if people acted like this all the time there wouldn't be mass killings.
