What really disturbs me about this case, besides the obvious, is how close it happened; of the 5 wounded students (1 of whom later died), 2 went to Hillcrest Hospital, where my great-grandfather lived for a month, and 3 to MetroHealth Medical Center, where my father works (though he's gotten today, and tomorrow off, so he did not personally treat the shot).

Thankfully, I didn't personally know the shooter or any of the victims. Really sad, though.

Red - the beautiful color of blood
Flowing like a stream
White - the color of bleaching bone
Lovely and obscene
Blue - the bruising color of flesh
Battered, ripped and torn
The colors of the flag of hate
Of violence and porn
What you see is what you get
You haven't see the bloody trail yet
I'm no patriot, just a hate-triot

Apparently it was another boy-girl issue? People really need to get over themselves and face up to the fact that the world is full of vagina and / or penis.

The kid who did it apparently posted on Twitter the night before that he was going to bring a gun to school and no one thought he was serious, so it's turned into somewhat of a social media/zero tolerence issue.

It's really horrible that this happened and it goes to show that a shooting can happen anywhere, not just a rough inner-city school or a super-rich suburban one but even a sleepy little town like Chardon.

Why does this stuff always happen in the US ? Or in Germany ? Or Finland ?

It looks like these 3 countries account for about 95% of all school shootings on the planet, with the US killers being responsible for about 80% of them.

There have been many such cases (even worse ? ones) all over the planet, which didn't get this media coverage. In Germany, Poland, the US, Argentina etc.

Tender is right. Austria is also over-blamed for dictators.

Apparently the victims were randomly chosen by the shooter - no pattern a la Columbine.  I cannot decide if that is more disturbing, because of the randomness, or less disturbing.  I'm leaning towards more disturbing.
