Man Shoots 2 Children in Elementary School in California

I don't know about you, but to me it just seems like a crazy world we live in, and keeps getting crazier. Why on GODS green earth would a person shoot at anyone, let alone children in an elemantary school? They say he MAY have mental issues, no kidding !! The parents owe the construction man who tackled the man a lot of thanks on this one, he was in the right place at the right time and had the courage to tackle this guy. What are your thoughts on this and our young children? Sounds like it will be a mental case defense from the head lines.

  • This is exactly we need tougher laws in this country. We are too easy on criminals so they are not afraid of going to jail or getting in trouble with the law because they all know that their punishment isn't going to be "that bad." Now go over to China and ask them what happens if they steal something or shoot someone. They don't mess around over there...which is precisely why their crime rate is so much lower than ours. You steal something, well then maybe you should have your hand cut off. You shoot someone...well maybe we should tie you to a tree and let people shoot at you. You torture and kill and innocent child? Well instead of warm meals, tv, and a bed in jail, how bout we let the parents of that child do whatever they want with your worthless body! Let's see how many people start thinking twice if we put those kinds of law in place.

  • I saw this today on the news. I dont know what they heck our country is turning into. It sad we cant even send our kids to school with out being worried they will get hurt or killed. Soo sad but I am glad they were not killed.

  • :sighs: Really sad and scary.Most parents send their kids off to school never thinking about something like this happening.Sick world we live in.Some of these situations though I do have to wonder if a teacher,at least, was allowed to carry could it all be avoided..Making sure the teacher was mentally stable and trained to use a fire arm first of course.
