    They just reported 7 dead. Sad.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    There's no need for the in-thread squabbling.

    So a Korean man killed 5 supposedly Christian students.

    I wonder if the partisans infuriated over the Martin/Zimmerman issue will overlook this one?

    Better yet, both should be treated as tragedies, and not used for political gain, imho.

    So I'll ask it as well.

    Where are the congressional hearings on this violence?
    Youth Violence Project - Congressional Hearing on School Shootings

    Congressional Testimony on School Safety

    Here's a few.

    Thanks for the links, Tim. Five years ago. Maybe it's time for more to bring these shootings front-and-center.

    Speaking to partisan attitudes. Let's see, there's a shooting by a Korean student in a Christian college started by a Korean. Why would the students of a small Christian college be anything but Christian, and why is the Korean killer not presumed to be neither a student nor Christian?

    Re: 5 dead, suspect in custody in classroom shooting at Oikos University in Californi

    I'm going to ignore the thread hijack currently in progress since this is not about politics, Trayvon Martin or America's gun laws.

    What we have here is another tragic incident of a confirmed ex-student in a Christian/Korean school specializing in, among other things, Asian medicine going postal on faculty and fellow classmates. A variant of workplace pay-back where fired employee comes back armed to the teeth and seeking revenge. It's absolutely tragic. Seven people are dead. I, for one, want to know why.

    I'm waiting for more information on the shooter which will hopefully include what his motives and mental state might be. I'm hoping no more of his victims die.
