I'm still shocked something like that could happen here in Germany. I thought this could happen only in countries with not so strict weapon laws like the USA.
I still remember how shocked I was when i saw littleton on TV, and i had thought about something like that happening
And I can't understand how a human can decide to kill so many people
It seems like he had failed his Abitur-exams twice and this could be a reason. A former pupil of the school told n-tv that he wanted to go to university, but he couldn't go there without an Abitur.
He killed 14 teachers, 2 pupils, 1 policeman (he arrived as first police officer at the school and did not know what was really going on there. He was killed by the gunman when he entered the school.) and himself(the best thing he did in his life...).
I think everything happened very fast, there was no chance(for the police) to prevent the horror. By the time the SEK (special forces) and later the GSG-9 (very special forces) arrived the massacre had already been made.
A Coincidence: Today, the parliament has decided for a new, even stricter weapon law. The parties who decided against it should about that...
At the moment the Otto Schilly is speaking live on all channels. He has already mentioned Horror films and very violent video games!
Flying-Tiger, thanks to the moderators, they're great. Posting an article with a copyright notice is allowed in all forums i can think of. Nobody cared about it here until our new GREAT moderators arrived. And it's a very bad attitude to delete a post about such a serious topic because of such a minor "mistake". Sorry, but this is just the next step in a row of questionable moderator decisions... But please discuss about this in another topic.
