heh, whoops
2003-04-25 04:07:49 PM  
Was the guy's name "John", and he's a black man that converted to Islam?

nothing like a string of school shootings to take your mind off the economy now that the war is over.
2003-04-25 04:08:27 PM  
At least they gunmen are getting older......

Hollywood + kids out of ideas.
2003-04-25 04:08:53 PM  
Must mean the seasons open.
2003-04-25 04:08:55 PM  
Nothing sweeter than 2 young kids in love.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Two people were shot in the head at the University of Maryland early Friday afternoon, police reported.

They break it to nice and easy don't you think?
2003-04-25 04:10:09 PM  
kids are so cute these days.
2003-04-25 04:10:28 PM  
I guess this might be a hint that there is something a bit not right in the social fabric.
2003-04-25 04:10:28 PM  
Go terps! No I really mean go! RUN!!
2003-04-25 04:10:55 PM  
I don't get these folks with their random shooting spree, they must be half retarded or something.

NOTE-If you plan to do a killin' spree, find the people who actually pissed you off and get them, leave the rest of us folks to go about our business.
2003-04-25 04:11:03 PM  
Stupid highsch...oh, nevermind.

"and are in "grave" condition"

now thats comedy, folks.
2003-04-25 04:11:17 PM  
Local News Says they believe it was an attempted murder-suicide: the guy blocked the woman's car in her space, shot her, then himself.

In all fairness this may not be school related. Much of College Park is a shiat hole.
2003-04-25 04:11:27 PM  
School shootings always happen one right after another it seems. One asshat shoots somebody, then an asshat that's thought about it sees the shiat on the news and says fark it, I'm going for it.
2003-04-25 04:11:47 PM  
He shoots, he scores!!
2003-04-25 04:11:52 PM  
Fear the turtle, indeed.
2003-04-25 04:12:04 PM  
This is all your fault, Doom 2! *shakes finger menacingly*
2003-04-25 04:12:16 PM  
Looks like it's that time of year again.

Spring has sprung,
So get your gun.
2003-04-25 04:12:23 PM  
the shooting is a cover up for teh Verizon story at the bottom of the page.
2003-04-25 04:13:15 PM  
isn't that like the third this year? did Manson put out a new album or something?
2003-04-25 04:13:22 PM  
Hmmm. Editor? You there?

"[Ellis] said police are not looking for a suspect."

"Officers have also not released any information about possible motive or suspects."
2003-04-25 04:13:38 PM  
But, it's illegal to bring guns into school property in Maryland.

Nobody would want to break the law.

This story must be a hoax.
2003-04-25 04:13:54 PM  
She probably dumped him, he couldn't handle it and did something this farking stupid.
2003-04-25 04:14:08 PM  
Trying to sort out news in the Friday Flush and you come across this shiat.
2003-04-25 04:15:03 PM  
G2V No, no, I'm pretty sure this one was because of Resident at Evil Creek.

This sounds like a guy who got pissed at the old lady and said screw it. The school was just the setting, it doesn't count as a school shooting.
2003-04-25 04:15:04 PM  
"witness recalls hearing two shots"
and there were two people shot.

"It just happened so fast. I still can't believe two people got shot," (said the person somewhere near there who saw and heard nothing)

Wow, what did somebody on the next block have to say about all this. I REALLY want to know. What are they getting paid by the word at that paper?

Oh, and this is very tragic.
2003-04-25 04:15:20 PM  
Repeat!! Oh, no, wait...
2003-04-25 04:15:33 PM  
I have nuthin till it happens in threes
2003-04-25 04:15:49 PM  
This isn't exactly what I think of when I hear the phrase "school shooting". It looks like it just happened to take place within the borders of a college campus.
2003-04-25 04:16:23 PM  
Wait a minute. Am I misreading this thing? They call both people 'victims', even though it was an apparent murder-suicide. How is the perpetrator a 'victim'?
2003-04-25 04:16:58 PM  
im glad i was to stupid to get accepted
2003-04-25 04:17:03 PM  
2 shot in the head? Hackers.
2003-04-25 04:17:06 PM  
I betcha she didn't rub testudos nose this morning...
2003-04-25 04:17:12 PM  
Adm_crunch- Yea, the headline is misleading, that is what I get for posting without reading the article.
However I stand by my statement.
2003-04-25 04:18:38 PM  
Hmmm. Editor? You there?

"[Ellis] said police are not looking for a suspect."

"Officers have also not released any information about possible motive or suspects."

Hehe.. I was wondering WHY they weren't looking for suspects.. don't have the manpower or something?
2003-04-25 04:18:45 PM  
Universities are a little different than High Schools.

I work at a university and I am not so sure. Sometimes it feels like HS more buildings.

...wondering if I can threadjack this into a "college students are asshats thread...
2003-04-25 04:18:57 PM  
"Suicide" is sometimes considered the end result of a severe mental condition. Thus, the second "victim".

On a completely different note, I've got another name for people who subscribe to the American culture of victimhood. ASSHATS.
2003-04-25 04:19:12 PM  
Yep, bad headline, definitely not a school shooting, even though it was a shooting at a school, sort of. Thanks for the sensationalism.
2003-04-25 04:19:13 PM

The tortoise and the hair-trigger.
2003-04-25 04:19:40 PM  
We will only learn the shooter's middle name if the victims die.
2003-04-25 04:19:49 PM  
hey, two school shootings since the Iraqi war started. And Columbine happened during the Kosovo war. Maybe Michael Moore was on to something. Perhaps disturbed individuals begin applying war rhetoric to their own problems, and then follow through.

Rmz Victim of society, baby, Victim of society.
2003-04-25 04:20:26 PM  
yay my Boobies

2003-04-25 04:22:20 PM  
2003-04-25 04:23:02 PM  
Remembering the nonsense that came out of Columbine...

You can bet we'll hear from the fundies that these schools needs to institute school prayer and hang up the ten commandments to cure this problem.

Another lame excuse to tear down the wall of separation...
