Oh, it doesn’t say any kids actually died, just that 22 people were “slashed” with a knife.
At least that’s something.
That’s correct. No fatalities.
Still pretty scary, but the lack of a gun tends to mean far less danger.
Yeeeah, but did you read this part?:
“No motive was given for the stabbings, which echo a string of similar assaults against schoolchildren in 2010 that killed nearly 20 and wounded more than 50. The most recent such attack took place in August, when a knife-wielding man broke into a middle school in the southern city of Nanchang and stabbed two students before fleeing.
Most of the attackers have been mentally disturbed men involved in personal disputes or unable to adjust to the rapid pace of social change in China, underscoring grave weaknesses in the antiquated Chinese medical system’s ability to diagnose and treat psychiatric illness.
In one of the worst incidents, a man described as an unemployed, middle-aged doctor killed eight children with a knife in March 2010 to vent his anger over a thwarted romantic relationship.”
I don’t know man, when unarmed people are involved, knives are plenty fucking scary. It’s only less scary if you’ve brought a gun to the knife fight (ie, for the cops).
I just…fuck everything.
