The alert went out just after 9:06 a.m. regarding an incident inside the hospital. It referred to a white male suspect wearing tan pants.


Probably pleated Dockers. Nothing says "I have nothing to live for, here comes suicide by rampage" like tan pleated Dockers.

For a knife crime?

Well arent you stupid.

The only knife crime I've seen is when my wife used one of my nice santoku knives to open a goddamn shipping box from Amazon. She had previously used one to cut up a frozen pizza on a metal pizza pan.

She just doesn't understand.

One of the best knives i have is over 100 years old with prussian proofmarks. It allows me to cut meat imto paper thin slices that i can lay across a salt block to "cook".

My wife was using it to unscrew the back of a remote control for my grandsons remote control car.

Im talking so thin you can see through the carpaccio.

I feel that pain. Mine is fully capable of making see-through meats. It is a handmade Japanese damascus-blade. She basically did the knife equivalent of taking a Ferrari Enzo on a rally race.

Why do they insist on picking the nicest one to use as a goddamn screwdriver?


Mine isn't a nice tall blade it has the carving knife profile.

give me doughnuts: msqualia: Nidiot: msqualia: fatty.fauntleroy: This was a pretty fun exercise in how the media manipulates the mindset of the masses.  The original story was completely wrong, but those who wanted to get spun up, did...and won't soon spin down.  It's fun to see how that dynamic works.

There've been two mass shootings in as many weeks.  You can't blame people for believing there might be another one and still being resentful from the last couple.

Judging by the comments still coming in, reading and getting facts is not what a certain group of people is interested in.

You must be so thrilled to be correct about something.

What almost certainly happened was that the campus was shut down using the same protocol they use for an active shooter.  I've worked at an institution.  If they want us to lock the doors and stay away from the windows and move the clients to the center of the building, we just get a phone call that says "possible active shooter" so they can hang up and call the next building.  It's quicker than "someone got stabbed and we don't know if they've got a gun or if they want to break in."  If someone texts their boyfriend or something and they call the press, that's what gets out first.

And again, we're getting one mass every 7-30 days.  The "facts" aren't otherwise flattering to you, bro.


And we have been for decades:
[www.boston.com image 481x289]
This is not a recent phenomenon.


Oh, OK, so we've been putting up for this for an even more ridiculously long period of time than I'd recalled.  Great.

Next you're going to tell me that the real problem is that the media covers it.

And fark you too if you think you have a "right" to force this kind of third-world murderocracy on the rest of us.

Hey, cletus, I hate to break it to you, but the murder rate keeps going down.

http://www.fark.com/comments/8286906/Gun-homicides-have-actually-gon e- down-once-again-proving-Fark-liberals-wrong-about-gun-control

And if that's true then it's obviously because we have guns everywhere. It just makes sense. I mean, I've noticed that the more insecticide I use, the more insects I have. The more fat I eat, the thinner I become. The more alcohol we drink, the more sober we are. It all makes equal sense so there's definitely a correlation here.


If topcon had claimed that the presence of firearms caused the reduction in homicides, then your sarcastic rejoinder would be meaningful. topcon did not, however, so yours is not.

Gun availability has not changed, actually has gotten tougher since I was a kid by far. Gun homicide is actually down.

So why are guns such a problem now? Maybe because we hear of every single shooting as it happens?

Heh, I was driving home yesterday and saw a jeep with a sticker that had a skull and reticle on it that said (no shiat): "Despite what your mommy told you, violence actually does solve problems". Granted, I live in Dallas so I probably shouldn't be surprised.
