I was thinking some of those injuries might include people jumping from windows, trampling, etc. Not sure though.

I think this is more about a "romance gone wrong" (from the shooter's perspective)
yeah, that was actually the first thing i was told about it from my supervior. the 2nd thing was about my student. i don't understand why he would open fire on a classroom if he was upset with his gf.

I can understand why this resonates more with most people

there is less detachment from the daily reports of scores of innocent being killed -> over there


It is always the worse thing imaginable
for the bereaved families and loved ones

the feeling is like having your guts ripped out

and living in a would of only gray tones
with no music, no beauty and no likelihood of ever having any normalcy back

we have seen things like this before


after he killed her

he believed his life was over
and he had no desire to go on

he was hurting?
and he wanted to inflict some hurt back

why that building? was he a student there?

Usually I try not to jump into the speculation game

I know we all want to make as much sense of this as possible

I still believe there may be a lot more answers? in the next couple of days

"Sky also reported one witness describing a gunman wearing a vest with an "ungodly" amount of ammunition, firing at will."

We need more information.

I hope there are cameras that captured much of what happened.



I believe England has many public cameras that shed light on these types of incidents.
