A male student armed with a knife went from classroom to classroom Wednesday morning, stabbing as many as 20 students and an adult in a 30-minute rampage at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville.

That's my local high school. Both sons went there. Wife taught there. Next door neighbor's daughter is a senior there now. She's fine. Hope the injured recover OK. Four students had serious injuries and were life flighted to local hospitals.

Yikes. That's scary, Garry. That hits a little close to home. :(

Organize some kind of resistance.  I can't help but think that this persons ability to injure so many with a knife is the result in some way of the sheep mentality we instill in kids today. 

"Don't fight back, violence solves nothing, let the authorities handle it." 

Dog Pile that POS.  He might be able to cut or stab a few but he can't hold back a wave of people from stomping his head in.

Also I bet he's is or was on some kind of anti-depressant.

Going off topic a little bit, having dealt with some folks who needed to be medicated to get through a normal day, I've seen first hand the radical mood shifts and instabilities that came with those meds when they're not the right kind for a given person. It can be... quite jarring.

The kids were probably afraid they'd be suspended if they fought back.   :-[

My regular riding partner Jesse (Buell Ulysses) from STN teaches at that school. I don't know if he has migrated to STO or not...

But was it a high-capacity assault knife? If so, it must be banned.

Among other things. Like the missing disc in my neck. And my missing car. And money. And sanity. And kids.

Yeah, like that.

Well that sucks. Will be interesting to hear WTF was wrong with this moron. Having said that, how did this happen? Knives are not allowed on school grounds.
I don't know how to act my age, I have never been this old before.........

Nah because if that were the case, the tragedy at VA Tech wouldn't have happened. ;)

Depends if there's someone there with a gun, I guess.
