Chinese officials say man who stabbed 23 children was affected by ‘doomsday rumors’

BEIJING — Officials say a man who went into a school in central China and stabbed 23 children last week was “psychologically affected” by doomsday predictions.

Min Yongjun is suspected of going into an elderly woman’s house Friday morning and stabbing her with a kitchen knife. He then allegedly went to a nearby elementary school in Chenpeng village in Guangshan county and injured the 23 children before being stopped by teachers and police.

He was arrested on suspicion of jeopardizing public security.

A statement from the Guangshan county government said Monday that police would evaluate Min’s psychological state, but that initial investigations found that he was strongly affected by “doomsday rumors.”

Some people believe the Mayan calendar predicts an apocalypse this Friday.

 It just goes to show you that no matter what it is, when someone is crazy enough to kill/harm someone they will do whatever it takes to do it... not just with guns!!!  What's your take on this??

  • It doesn't even have to be weapons; they'll make anything in to a weapon.

  • yep, they will... I just don't see how they think that stricter gun laws will change anything. Look at drugs... those are illegal and you see how well those are off the streets!! SMH :0/

  • they took all the pencils out of a children's crisis unit here once b/c a kid stabbed himself in the leg. he did it so he could get out & go to the hospital, i heard it was a pretty gruesome sight. so ANYTHING can be used as a weapon. granted, you wouldnt kill many ppl with one pencil.

  • We should also ban weed sprayers. Imagine what would happen if someone went into a school, theater, or mall and did this:


    4 injured after woman doused with chemical, set on fire.

    Big difference. The children of Sandy Hook were not killed with a knife or a chemical they were killed by bullets. Shot multiple times withing minutes.

    Wonder what the families are thinking while they bury their children today.

  • but the point here is that he still had a weapon... just because it wasn't a gun doesn't make it any less gruesome.

  • maybe we should just ban everything and just sit and do nothing for the rest of our lives. ANYTHING can be made into a weapon. More people die in auto accidents should we ban cars now?
