I am not going to pretend to be a statistician but it seems that insanity is running rampant lately across the globe and NOT just in America. There is another story floating around here on Topix:<quoted text>
Add up all the recent mass murders and the number of killers is very small, so unfair to indict all Americans.
However, it would be useful to learn what motivates such actions.
22 children, 1 adult injured in knife attack outside central China primary school
Full story: The Washington Post
And you might recall the other China stories about children in a grade school being killed by Muslim terrorists a few years back. There have been more this past year(I'm not going to take the time to find each one for this post).
Wasn't there also one like this in France last Summer where grade school children were involved?
I suspect that technology is allowing copycat psychotics to get ideas from the internet along with instant media reports. That recent Colorado movie theater incident triggers a hundred psychos across the globe to act out their sick fantasies. Add to this the increasing social deprecation of Life with abortion as BC, the growing spectre of fetus sales for Stem Cell Harvesting, increasingly realistic and violent digital game killings. How many recent stories have there been now of pregnant young girls giving birth and then dropping their nameless load into a restroom trash can or alley dumpster and then returning to the Prom Dance Floor as though nothing just happened? There are consequences for tolerating and even encouraging a diminished and eroding sense of personal responsibility. Life is cheap and getting cheaper.
