It has returned. After they buried this yesterday because of the title, I was wondering if it would come back. This is sad as well as scary.
2002-02-23 10:30:00 PM  
Well, Georgia just gets loads and loads of good publicity on fark . . .
2002-02-23 10:32:23 PM  
I submitted this yesterday ... wonder if it was mine that got buried because of the title. I'll have to be more careful with my words next time!
2002-02-23 10:44:37 PM  
Thats farked up. Hopefully they'll burn him
2002-02-23 10:46:56 PM  
People like that shouldn't be allowed to keep thier arms.
2002-02-23 11:19:12 PM  
ban hammers! Save the world!
2002-02-23 11:28:13 PM  
The "claw end" is called a peen
2002-02-23 11:36:33 PM  
Thanks Riptor!

This should have a Hero tag...

here it comes

the girl still had the claw end of the hammer stuck in her head when she was airlifted to Children's Healthcare

2002-02-23 11:47:58 PM  
Kind of ironic that this story is right above the "no such thing as mental illness" story. Well done, moderator.
2002-02-23 11:49:40 PM  
Forget a trial--just hammer the farker to death!
2002-02-23 11:52:37 PM  
You can't just pull out the hammer, you have to push it completely though and pull it out the other side of her head.

Or is that only for arrows?!?!?!?!?
2002-02-23 11:54:47 PM  
No, the claw end is called a "claw." Hence the name "claw hammer." A "peen" is generally rounded. Hence the name "ball-peen hammer."
2002-02-23 11:58:49 PM  
Yeah, Victoly, way to set him straight! :)
2002-02-23 11:59:52 PM  
AYB: I think that's pretty standard. The hammer would stem the flow of blood some, so they leave it in until they can get to a hospital, where they're better equipped to deal with a head gusher.

This happened at Mountain Park Elementary School, which is literally right down the street from my house.

I left school that day (at a High School a few miles away), and there were 4 or 5 helicopters in the air looking for the psycho who did this, and they think they found him just a few hundred feet away from one of my friend's houses.

Close to home, for me.
2002-02-24 12:42:34 AM  
I submitted this a couple days ago but whatever. It's things like this that make me think teachers should be allowed to have guns. One of them could have shot the farker in the head right there.
2002-02-24 12:50:59 AM  
If you outloaw claw hammers, then only outlaws will have claw hammers.

All joking aside, this is extremely disturbing. This jerk needs to go down... slowly and painfully.
2002-02-24 12:53:01 AM  
Fark...I hope our court system does the right thing, and end his farked up life.
2002-02-24 12:53:32 AM  
What? No gun involved? I'm surprised the media even reported it....
2002-02-24 01:45:53 AM  
Praetorian42 - Me Too! Sort of. This happened right down my street . . . a few miles down my street but still rather close. I through that area almost everyday. Freaky. On a slightly different note, have you ever sign in the Mountain Park area says "Mountain Park Park" . . . is the extra park really necessary?
2002-02-24 01:53:44 AM  
It makes sense to keep the hammer in until you get to the hospital. Taking it out might have caused more bleeding and damage.

As for the armed teachers. I predict that more and more teachers will try to become secretly armed when at school. This will backfire when a teacher, either poorly trained in using a gun or just unable to handle an intense situation, shoots another student or teacher instead of their target.

Crossfire happens.
2002-02-24 02:00:10 AM  
Pity nobody puts a hammer up his rectum, claw end first.
2002-02-24 02:20:21 AM  
peen to the bean.
2002-02-24 03:50:52 AM  
Reminds me of the episode of The Kids in The Hall where this guy was trying to get workers comp...

"Noooo! Not the claw!"

Speaking of horrible bodily damage done with carpenters tools...
Did Fark ever post a story on the guy who cut his hand off with a table saw by accident and was in such pain that he drove some absurd number of nails into his head (12 I think) with a nail gun in an attempt to kill himself... and FAILED?
2002-02-24 08:11:17 AM  
Kill him. Now.

2002-02-24 09:52:24 AM  
Well, it might have been worse. He could have used the other end to repeatedly bash her skull in, instead of only one claw shot.
Either way, the girl was asking for it.
2002-02-24 10:11:56 AM  
shiat, I'm glad i don't go to Lilburn schools.
2002-02-24 10:14:56 AM  
What do you mean she was asking for it??
2002-02-24 10:22:07 AM  
Wait just a farking minute, Moutain Park Elem. isn't in Lilburn, it's in Stone Mountain. That arcticle is farked up.
2002-02-24 10:49:53 AM  
No, its in Lilburn, the Stone Mountain city limits are about a half a mile down the road. If you want to be techincal, it is in Mountain Park, which is a tiny ass town that got absorbed by Lilburn and Stone Mountain like 40 years ago.
2002-02-24 11:24:16 AM  
uh, this d00d was mentally retarted
2002-02-24 01:01:09 PM  
The voice in my head tell me that this idiot just needs to be killed.
2002-02-24 01:06:45 PM  
"He said he just wanted to attack somebody, needed to attack somebody," said Cpl. Ray Dunlap, a police spokesman.

Can you say life inprisonment?
2002-02-24 02:58:28 PM  
Mountain park is a flea turd on the map.
2002-02-24 03:55:48 PM  
This guy needs to b put in prison with people equally as disturbed....

And at his cell-mates parole " I just wanted to ram my fist up someones anus, needed to fist someone." "I get that way without my medication, and i have not had my medication today."
2002-02-24 04:40:14 PM  
Whoa, something like this happened at the elementary school that's literally right behind my house.

I was in sixth grade at the time... apparently, some crazy lady wandered into the library while some first graders were there, pulled the hair of one of them, and dug into the neck of another with her nails. It was bizarre.
2002-02-24 04:40:55 PM  
Can you say life inprisonment?

Not without sounding like an illiterate jackass.
2002-02-24 08:19:30 PM  
Whoa, Bucket...
First, your local nail-attack,
Then this guy's hammer-attack,
pretty soon the headlines will read:

Man enters classroom with Black & Decker tablesaw, injurs 2 students before fleeing school.

Abolish carpentry & woodworking!!!

2002-02-25 02:42:43 AM  
"He said he just wanted to attack somebody, needed to attack somebody," said Cpl. Ray Dunlap, a police spokesman.

his attorney went on to say:

"What do you expect? He has a hammer and he likes to hammer in the morning."
