Default Man slashes 22 children near China school

Quote:
By John Hannon

December 14, 2012, 1:47 a.m.
BEIJING -- A man with a knife slashed 22 children and one adult outside an elementary school in Henan province Friday morning, China's worst such incident in more than a year.

The attack was reminiscent of a spate of knife attacks on schoolchildren that took place across China in 2010. In most cases, the attackers were unemployed middle-aged men, leading to speculation that the assaults stemmed from economic and social discontent.

Friday's attack occurred at about 7:40 a.m. as children were arriving outside the gate of Chenpeng Village’s Wanquan Elementary School. The suspect, Min Yingjun, 36, allegedly slashed an elderly woman as well as the children. Local propaganda officials said later that Min had a psychological illness.

Pictures uploaded to the Internet by bystanders show family members carrying young children with bandages on their heads. The local reports state that four seriously wounded children were transferred to other hospitals for intensive care.

The scene of the attack lies within the limits of Xinyang City, a mountainous and poor municipality 600 miles south of Beijing. The region is renowned for maojian, a bitter and aromatic green tea grown in the mountains. Xinyang is also known as one of the areas hardest hit by the famine that accompanied Communist Party agricultural policies in the 1950s and 1960s. More recent government policy has encouraged the adult population in rural Henan to migrate to cities to look for employment.

In another incident, a 25-year-old man was arrested Thursday night in Beijing after a series of incidents in which young women were slashed on the subway with a box cutter. The New China News Agency said the young man had recently been jilted by a girlfriend and wanted "revenge on society."

In 2010, nearly 20 children were killed and 50 wounded in a string of copycat incidents around central China. China has strict gun control laws, so knives are the weapon of choice in violent crimes.

Rediculous topic. Lets not pretend that this would go down on a regular basis in the US. Dude would have been tackled or jumped to death. I can't count how many videos i've seen in China where a child is getting ran over by a dozen cars or some other brutal attack and the asian people just carry on with their day.

Americans may have depression issues, but we don't let shit like that go down. So take this topic and shove it, Flagrant.

Imagine if the guy had possession of some assault rifles, no one is saying that people will stop killing other people if you take guns away. Killing is part of humanity, but it's harder to kill other people with knifes than it is with guns.

a wacko with a gun killed more in a couple of minutes than several wackos knifes during a full year.

yes it does.

And guns aren't the issue but banning them will save lives, period.

You didn't make this topic because its a tragedy with this man did, but to combat any arguments about more gun control. Children woke up this morning expecting to get out of school and go watch The Hobbit this weekend and all some people care to do is defend their political stance.
