Clearly we should outlaw everything anybody might in any way hurt somebody with. Ceramic coffee mugs, for example: that's why God gave us styrofoam.

My hope and belief is that due to the poor writing in this article, the fattie was referring to the body still being there during the investigation.


Yeah. I'm hoping they were ignoring the police crime scene going on down the street, not the presence of a dead body in the gutter. I consider myself to be a pretty ambivelent individual, but I would have to act if I saw a dying/dead person laying in the gutter. At the very least, calling 911 and checking for a pulse will provide me with an afternoon's worth of entertainment, a reprieve from mundane daily activities, and a tale to regale my co-workers with.

Sandwyrm: The teacher was the target of the attacker, obviously he's going to fight back if he's getting attacked. The real question is, why did none of the students help? Why are we so glad that all of the students escaped unharmed?

How is this cowardice applauded?


They were computer science students. Their pocket protectors and eyeglass tape did not confer sufficient super powers to allow them to strike back at the threat.

[in response to satirical comments of the no-gun-control crowd]

say what you want, it's a lot easier for one guy to kill a bunch of people with an automatic firearm than with a bow, crossbow, knife, or whatever.

I'm fine with private citizens (who aren't proven crazy or repeat felons) owning handguns, rifles, and shotguns. I don't think any private citizen needs fully automatic assault rifles, machine guns, grenades, rocket launchers, or any other military-level weaponry.

semi-automatic/self-loading guns, that's a gray area ...

John Napkintosh: But I thought that if people didn't have guns, violent murders would be a thing of the past?

Shhhhh... Democrats aren't good with the whole critical thinking thing... you trying to cause a paradox or something?


Republicans ain't good at critical thinking either, witness the "Obama is a commie Muslim" crap.

That's the real paradox, how we manage to have a country as nice as we do with all those Democrats & Republicans being so silly. You'd think with an electorate of idiots we'd be worse off. This could mean that voting is basically irrelevant to the power structure and that our Ruling Class ain't quite as bad as most of their "non-white" foreign counterparts. (Strictly speaking the Iranian are Aryan, the word Iran being Iranian for "land of the Aryans," but tell that to White American Wingnuts.)

America might be even nicer if our hoi polloi were better educated and had some stupidity bred out, but that would be too much trouble for our populace to go to. It's so much easier to be fat, stupid & lazy that our "thrones & dominions" don't have to try very hard to repress us. Why bother to keep us down when we never bother getting up? So they save the cruise missiles and drones for peoples with self-respect.

Well consider that all of the unarmed students ran away from a bow wielding gentleman, and then I think your point becomes hilarious.

Snort:

Bow and arrows don't kill people, mentally deranged people with good aim kill people.

So you have to be mentally deranged to kill anybody? That supports the pacifist argument that people have to be brainwashed into being soldiers, that inductees have to be purposefully mentally deranged in a militarily useful way.

ISubmittedThisYesterdayWithAMuchFunnierHeadline: Why was a room full of college students escaping at all, instead of beating the ever-loving shiat of the guy that just shot their teacher with a single-shot weapon?


Well from TFA, the "room full of students" was only 6 computer science kids and the dude also had a knife that the police chief describes as "very large" which he used to kill at least one person at that point.

I know, ITG and all that, but if I'm sitting there with 5 other dorks with a pencil in my hand and some dude busts in, shoots the teacher with a crossbow and pulls out a Bowie knife I would think about excusing myself unless the assailant is clearly so tied up with the dad that you could grab it from his hand or something. But beating the ever-loving shiat out of someone with your barehands could be tough if they're stabbing you in the gut.

It wouldn't be tough to argue that people don't kill except in mental states that are decidedly outside the norm. Some of those states are legitimate: for example, fear that you or a loved one is about to be killed or come to grievous bodily harm at the hands of that guy over there with the weapon. Other states, like "being mentally deranged," are another matter entirely.

Rich Cream: "a Wyoming college instructor still managed to wrestle with his 25-year-old son who carried out the attack and give his students time to flee the classroom, say police who hailed the actions as heroic."

1. It is not "heroic" to defend against your assailant, particularly your own offspring. His motivation being the escape of the students is not likely top of the list.

2. The students didn't escape anything. They weren't part of the plan.

Watch out, people will be mad that you didn't call someone defending themselves a hero. Everyone's a hero, you didn't know?

The students figured that once the teacher had been shot that class was dismissed. I mean really, whose gonna grade what you were working on?

Wyomingites refer to Casper as the "Oil City" because it is a hub of the state's oil industry.

Well right there's two things I didn't know about Wyoming.
One, the fine folks from Wyoming are called -Wyomingites -
and
Two - there's an oil industry there.

I'll be damned, but, I'm smarter than when I started reading the article, so I got that goin' for me . . .

Yeah, the article doesn't have this, but the psycho killed his dad around 9am, so she was dead before that, and found within a couple hours. This person got there after work and picking up her kid, so 3pm? Either her quote isn't complete or she just didn't say, but obviously there were police there and crime scene tape, and hopefully the body was covered. Anyway it's not that they didn't call it in, that would indeed be farked up.
 
2012-12-03 02:54:15 PM
You can't really blame the people who fled. For one thing, you know more about the situation than the students did - you know there was only one assailant, you know the assailant was the teacher's son there to execute a personal grudge (and not some random spree killer), and you know he wasn't also packing a gun. The students in the class couldn't know any of those things - for all they knew a second shooter was about to walk in the room with a shotgun or something. Plus, you don't have to deal with the surprise aspect of it - when most people are exposed to totally random and unexpected violence, there is going to be at least a few moments of shock and panic before they start to think rationally at all.

I took an archery class. We could see the arrow shake a little bit when it was first launched, and then
steady as it made its way to the target. About halfway through the class, some guys showed up, Bo and Luke Duke, if you will. We had no problem removing our arrows from the inch or so they went in to the target. Bo and Luke, their arrows were all the way in, if not coming out the back side.
