I bet the convicts are morons who believe in the 12/21/12 conspiracy. Think about it: 18 months ago, some guy predicted the end of the world three days prior to when it was supposed to happen and like 20 people committed suicide, including a mother who killed her own children.

I would expect more of this leading up to the supposed "judgement day." Idiotic psychopaths who have no idea what the difference between real and fake is will probably freak out and massacre more people. It's a shame. -_-'

As a parent and grandparent, stuff like this just overwhelms me. I can understand having a vendetta against society or individuals, but against children?

*Just woke up about an hour ago, and just now found out that here in Memphis two police officers were shot today, one killed. The one killed is mother of 4 children, ages 2-14. Gonna be a very somber roll call tonight. . .

He probably didn't have a vendetta against the children, they were just caught in the moment. Maybe (speaking of the 20 yr old) he was deeply psychologically troubled and saw the kids his mother was teaching as stealing her away. So, to preserve this relationship he kills the mother, and goes to the school, killing teachers in his way, goes to two classrooms (I think it was two) that presumably were under the care of his mother, and killed the children in the room. You never know with these type of things, maybe it was less than that. Maybe he just hated his mom and her elementary school. About the guy in China, he probably just snapped and went nuts...

These are both acts by people who are insane. The theory about the nuts who believe in the 12-21-12 conspiracy theory might be valid. We'll just have to see what happens in the next week leading up to next Friday.

To me, it was the only thing that really made any sense. It'll make more sense if we see more massive murders with people who afterwards commit suicide. It really sucks and I hope that's not the case at all, but we won't know until after 12/21/12 passes.

this is just sad. how about a little empathy for the families instead of end-of-world rants, yeah? This is ridiculous. Those poor children, so young..these are just horrid acts. I dont even know how a man can rationalize doing such a thing to innocent people. I feel for those parents, man. This next few nights are going to be the roughest of their lives. I wish there was something I could do for them to help stop the bleeding..so unjust.

This is extremely sad news to say the least and my personal condolences go out to the families of the victims. This is a tough time for the United States for a number of reasons but the increase we have seen in school violence in the last few years is beginning to reach a critical point. I wish I could say I think this will be the last of these events, I just hope that police, military, and government organizations are ready to address this issue before it becomes more out of hand. Not to mention considers taking a serious look at gun laws.

That said, there was in fact a thread started about this same topic already by another user a few hours before this one. Also I would caution some posters to remember that this event is a serious tragedy and treat the subject matter with the respect it deserves. That's all.

Here is a link to the original topic.
