People going postal and shooting up places.

It really doesn't happen in other countries. Acts of terrorism, yes. Cival wars, yes. Genocides, yes. But people going postal and shooting up everyone in a mall, school, restaurant doesn't happen in other countries. Anyone have any thoughts on why that is?

  • Just look to cafe mom or any where, mothers giving into their kids. I hear once a kid killed himself for not getting a TV. AMERICANS THINK THEY ARE OWED SOME HOW and want others to pay for it on the way out. I have had a lot happen to me but going postal is not one of them. Some have no clue how hard life can be and some mothers are playing house with the kids. Wait until they see the real world. No one teaches manners anymore.

  • Of course it happens in other countries. But you might miss that if you only look at American media.

  • Anon :56.....OP here - give me an example of someone who has walked into a public place and randomly shot people in another country that is not an act of terrorism or had to do with a genocide or civil war.

    Oh and how do you know that I only look at American media?

  • Because accountability doesn't exist in America. We are so afraid of taking away criminals "rights" that we allow them to run free and murder and rape as they please.

  • This sounds a lot like an anti-gun ownership post. OP, why don't you put us out of our misery and tell us why YOU think this only happens here.

  • OP you are an idiot...

    The teenage gunman who went on a shooting rampage in a school in southern Germany killed 15 people before dying in a shoot-out with police. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/7937554.stm

    A 19-YEAR-OLD woman was shot dead and her grandfather seriously wounded by her former boyfriend who then killed himself.

    There are many people who go "postal" in other countries and take numerous lives.

    then you must only look at at LIBERAL foreign media--they don't cover those sorts of things either! lololol Oh, and another thing, maybe people in other countries don't have the TIME to "go postal" BECAUSE their countries are full of terrorist acts of violence, or they are involved in a rebel lead genocide or civil war!

    Merry Christmas!
