    7 children, 2 adults killed in China school attack

    7 children, 2 adults killed in China school attack - CNN.com

    Beijing, China (CNN) -- The death toll from an attack at a kindergarten in northwestern China rose to nine Wednesday after one of the wounded victims died, state media said.

    A man with a kitchen cleaver hacked to death a teacher and seven kindergarten students -- five boys and two girls. He then returned home and committed suicide, state media said.
    China has seen a spate of attacks at schools in recent days.

    On April 30, a man armed with a hammer injured five preschool children in east China before setting himself on fire in a classroom suicide, a government spokesman told Xinhua news agency.

    The attacker held two children in his arms as he poured gasoline over himself, the spokesman said. Teachers in Weifang City, Shandong province, pulled the children away as the man died, the spokesman said.

    On April 29, at least 28 children were injured when a man with a knife attacked a kindergarten in east China, state media said. Most of the victims were 4-year-olds and three of the children were in critical condition.
    Geez, how horrific that must have been, not only for the victims, but the kids who witnessed such a inconceivable act.

    How do you recover from seeing something like at such a young age?

    Moving from a third world status to become a first world nation means more stress, and with more stress comes more wackos. Our wackos sit in bell towers and such, while it seems their wackos kill kids. Either way, it's a sick world out there.

    Oops, I just had a bad thought. Those who are killing the children in China are kind of dumb. If they wanted to kill more children, they should just donate milk from China's dairy factories to the schools there.

    I couldn't even read the entire article because it was too upsetting to me. This is heartbreaking.

    Things like this make me just say what the ****. I can actually understand or accept some regular whacko killing his wife or a nutjob doing in his therapist - that's 'normal' murder.

    But children, in a school?
    WHAT is the thought process behind that? That's just ****ed up.

    I'm sure things like that would happen in the US if we didn't have such stringent measures to keep unwanted people OUT of schools in efforts to make schools safer.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Re: 7 children, 2 adults killed in China school attack

    This is the 5th attack against schoolchildren in China since mid April, I believe.


    Two weeks ago a farmer in Shandong province in southeastern China used a hammer to wound five kindergarten pupils before burning himself to death.

    The day before 29 kindergarten children in president Hu Jintao’s home district of Taizhou were wounded by an unemployed man wielding a pig-slaughtering knife.

    On April 28 in the southern province of Guangdong a teacher on sick leave because of mental illness stabbed 18 students and their teacher.

    And in the weeks before that there were three other similar incidents, including eight children stabbed to death at a primary school in Fujian province on China’s south coast.

    I'd recommend EMDR.

    I wonder if it has anything to do with their family planning laws or the fact that there are now a negative ratio of females to males. There are many men in their twenties and teens who will never be able to marry in China because there aren't enough women. Leaving a posterity is huge in the Chinese culture. A man without a wife and children is like an alien in his own land.

    To be truthful, this worries me more than a little bit, because probably the only way to equalize this ratio is to send a lot of young men off to war to die.

    Very, very interesting. Yes, this is worrisome.

    Does anybody know the religion of the man
