What in the hell is up with all the kindergarten attacks in China?

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2010/05...-kindergarten/

BEIJING (AP) — A Chinese news agency says seven children were hacked to death and at least 20 others injured in a violent rampage at a kindergarten in northwest Shaanxi province, in the lastest in a string of attacks on schools.
Like the 5th attack at a kindergarten in the past couple of weeks.

5 Chinese kindergarten children hurt in hammer attack

Friday 30th April, 02:26 PM JST

BEIJING —

A farmer attacked and injured five kindergarten students with a hammer in eastern China before burning himself to death Friday in the latest in a string of horrific assaults on children at Chinese schools, state media reported.

The attacker used a motorcycle to break down a gate of the school in Shandong province’s Weifang city, struck a teacher who tried to block him and then used the hammer to attack the children, the official Xinhua News Agency said.

Oh. Wasn't aware there was more than one recent attack.

I think school attacks do seem to happen from time to ime. Not sure of the motive, usually it's just some crazy guy attacking random school kids.

Seems like every culture has its own unique pathologies to one degree or another. Maybe the one-child policy creates some undercurrent of hostility and resentment towards children on the part of some disturbed people? I have no idea.

Unless that was a particularly large teacher, there's something missing from that sentence.

Like how the school stays afloat and what can be done to keep barges away?

Interesting observation. Hadn't thought of that. Wonder how many attackers had a child, and how many had a daughter instead of a son.

I'm assuming they did what I wished we could do here. No trial, no 15 years on death row and 20 bullshit appeals... just took him out back and shot him like an animal.

Having been here much longer that you, I have learned that this, however, will not stop ignorant posts around here.

Someone told the Chinese that those damned kindergartners were the ones who committed the atrocities at Nanking and etc.

You know... like how we told the Japanese it was a whale flying the Enola Gay.

I'm sure there are hourly flights to whatever god forsaken, ass-backwards of a country they do that in, just in case you want to go and join them.

FYI, Most of the world hates China because they do shit like that. The Chinese government is deplorable. While our justice system is retarded at least it isn't a kangaroo court deathsquad.
