    Tunnel Vision of Newtown Massacre

    While all eyes are drawn to the Newtown Massacre here is another story not making the Lame Stream Media:

    Knife-wielding man injures 22 children in China - Courant.com

    Another country and please note NO GUNS were used in this attack on school children!

    In fairness I saw this story on CBS and CNN. There is a difference between not being covered and being a huge story.

    This story is mostly forgotten: Bath School disaster - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Evil exists. People need to recognize it.

    Anybody catch the network followup to Clackamas where the citizen pulled his gun and the shooter retreated then committed suicide? Me neither.

    If it doesn't fit the agenda they ignore it, or make it a footnote on page 4 so they can say, "see, we DID report it".
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Id be careful putting this story out as a poster child. No one was killed in the knife attack, they will point that out and throw it back in your face.

    IMHO ...

    Certainly no "tunnel" here. A knifing on the other side of the planet that resulted in no deaths in a country that knows how to effectively deal with the riffraff doesn't take away from anything. The appropriate focus is on multiple multi-murder situations on our own ground, in a nation that decidedly doesn't know how to effectively deal with its riffraff, a situation that'll have far-reaching implications for the Constitution and the practical ability of the People to protect themselves against criminality. It is what it is.
