Multiple Victims Shot Dead At Amish School -- Fox

Tue Oct 03, 2006 1:39 am

Fox News Channel and CNN are reporting that multiple individuals have been shot and killed at a small one-room schoolhouse in an Amish community in Pennsylvania.

More as events may warrant.

Thank you for the link.

This is a very sad occurrence. The Amish are a peaceable people and I am saddened that violence has found a place today in their midst.

Thats a shame... they are the most non-violent people you will usually see. I wonder if the shooter was Amish or not, the article doesn't say.

Not all the kids are accounted for. Witnesses say they saw some running out into the fields during the shooting. Fire and EMS people are doing line searches for miles around.

I hope they find them all. Can you imagine a terrified, wounded kid afraid to come out? Even if they're a few feet away from a firefighter?

This is absolutely crazy...I never in my mind would have imagined a school shooting at an Amish school. And I just heard the shooter ordered all the boys out and left all the girls...good gosh, not again. Sounds like a copycat to me. This is absolutely horrible, I hope for the best for the families and friends of the victims, as well as those injured for a speedy recovery.

The issue isn't firearms anymore, the issue is that Americans seem to do nothing about this whole thing, no protests, nothing. I mean, what will it take to impose discipline in schools?

In Europe if you get overtime hours cut, the whole country goes on strike, or at the very least transportation. How many times have subways in England, or airlines in France or Italy, Spain, workers in Germany gone on strike? When there is violence in Europe you see thousands in the streets. Same in Argentina, for example.

Yet in the US, not even like a dozen shooting in a week prompt any kind of reaction. I'm sorry but that kind of apathy is hard to respect.

So you are saying we should disrupt everybody's daily routine for protest? Look, in the US, transportation strikes, grocery store strikes, etc don't get as much (if any) public sympathy as they might do in Europe. Americans care, but we don't do it by striking all the time.

And enough with the exaggerations about a "school shooting every week." For the longest time this was not going on.

Ok, fine people, nothing can be done. Just go on with your lives while your kids may or may not come alive from school every day for 14 years of their lives.

And I HATE to go off on a tangent, but if the United States as a society is incapable of stopping such incidents as you all say, then how can you go with a straight face to another thread and tell Mexican society to clean up their severe violence in their country?

Maybe next time you won't make such oversweeping demands, then.

You mean they don't want their lives disrupted, well that's called APATHY. Sorry, but that's just how I see it. Furthermore, a protest in Washington or New York WOULD NOT disrupt the lives of people.

And it doesn't have to be a protest, it was just an example. You can get grass-root movements to enforce discipline in schools again, or something else. The point is, nothing is done, even the US media is saying this now.

Nobody says that the American society is incapable of stopping this, because we are. The point we are trying to make is that protesting the government will not make them write some magical law to make it all disappear. Even if they did write a law, would it help? The problem isn't so much gun access but what the hell is wrong with these perpetrators, which is something that the government can't really do.

Seriously, you're just grasping at straws now.

Derico, other than the your rhetoric, what exactly are you proposing. I doubt you'll find a soul on here that is saying nothing can be done, we're just saying why protest/strike. There are notable exceptions of course, but as a rule, thats generally not how we get things done in this country. I can guarantee you these three incidents will cause a lot of soul searching in the coming days, and there will be reactions and changes made. But to simply rush out in the streets, what exactly, will that accomplish?

You cannot logically compare isolated school shootings with widespread crimes like murders, rapes, gang violence, business corruption, etc. On those subjects, the US has been able to clean up a lot more than Mexico, by the way.

There is not widespread crime and rape in Mexico. It is you who is reaching for straws now. The comparison is most certainly valid. If the US can't completely stop strife in it's society how the he!! do you expect Mexico to? Simply put, you are not being fair.

With all due respect, I think the difference here is that the school shooters aren't coming to your country. Drug trafficking and illegal immigration are things that end up on US shores as a result of these countries' inability to deal with them.

A 70-year-old man who transported the Amish people's daily milk "harvest" to market reportedly had a falling out with them. Today, he walked into the one-room school with an automatic handgun and shotgun and told all the boys to leave. He lined the girls up against the blackboard and restrained their extremities using FlexCuffs. He then walked down the line, shooting each of them in the head execution-style. Then he shot himself.

School shootings and violence are not US - only problems. Here's a rundown from Reuter's:

Dec. 6, 1989 - CANADA - Marc Lepine, 25, stormed Montreal's Ecole Polytechnique, killing 14 women. Four men and eight other women were injured before Lepine turned the gun on himself.

March 1996 - BRITAIN - A gunman burst into an elementary school in Dunblane in Scotland and shot dead 16 children and their teacher before killing himself.

March 1997 - YEMEN - A man with an assault rifle attacked hundreds of pupils at two schools in Sanaa, killing six children and two others. He was sentenced to death the next day.

April 28, 1999 - CANADA - A 14-year-old boy walked into a high school in Taber, Alberta, with a .22 semi-automatic rifle and shot and killed a 17-year-old student and seriously injured another 11th grade student.

June 2001 - JAPAN - Mamoru Takuma, armed with a kitchen knife, entered the Ikeda Elementary School near Osaka and killed eight children. Takuma was executed in September 2004.

April 26, 2002 - GERMANY - In Erfurt, eastern Germany, a former student opened fire at a high school in revenge for being expelled. A total of 18 people died, including the assailant.

Sept 1, 2004 - RUSSIA - At least 326 hostages -- half of them children -- died in a chaotic storming of School No.1 in Beslan, after it was seized by rebels demanding Chechen independence.

Here's how Mexico can establish law and order.

1) pay its state and local police a living wage so that they aren't so easily corruptible.

2) Conduct an aggressive campaign directed at law enforcement corruption at all levels. Throw the guilty in jail.

Once the people of Mexico develop some faith that going to the cops to report a crime isn't more dangerous than the crime itself, the beginnings of a civil society will take root.

BTW, just how do isolated school shootings in the US affect Mexico?

The suspect had 45 minutes to board up the doors? 45 minutes before the teacher was able to dial 911?

Why do the Amish not use phones? Especially in a school? Oh man, this is awful. Those poor kids!

I appreciate your effort to respond.

Most deffinately, a good solid wage would go a long way to cut the tempation of corruption.

But the corruption problem is waay to difficult, nearly impossible to resolve. The government can make a 'magic law' to dictate a crackdown on corruption, but 'individual' corruptors will never be eliminated no matter what they do.

Same as you all said protesting or passing some 'magic law' will never eliminate violence in schools.

That you my friend would be the first one to demand that Mexico eliminate all it's social problems, by magic. And if you recall, in this thread you and half a dozen other A.netters told me that protesting and passing "magic laws" won't end school violence in the US. The reason I brought Mexico up is because I remembered how in that thread all kinds of people were demanding Mexico do this and that with their violence, as if a magic wand could take care of it tomorrow.

So again, I was pondering if such is the state of things, can you expect a country like Mexico to just 'eliminate' all violence in their border regions. I'm sorry you are so insulated from international reality to not see the implausible nature of such a proposition.

Who said anything about rioting? Just peaceful protests so that your government hears your concerns, you know, the kind of thing American Patriots FOUGHT FOR 230 years ago??

I'm sure that the government is well aware that the citizens are outraged about school shootings, that's just common sense. No need to have a demonstration to say "hey, we don't like school shootings!" That's about as stupid as me going outside and announcing to everyone that I enjoy breathing much more than the alternative.

Ok, fine, nothing can be done. I will not make this an issue anymore. If nothing can be done, nothing can be done.

Nothing can be done, sometimes people go crazy, it happens in Canada, the US, Mexico and elsewhere. How exactly are we to stop people from going crazy?

Exactly, how is Mexico supposed to stop crazy people that have billions of foreign dollars at their disposal to operate in their country? I will leave it here, obviously people want other countries to do far more with less than their own could ever do.

May I respectfully suggest to those involved in the political discussions which have shown up in this thread to take it elsewhere? This thread was started, I believe, so that we could all share in the tragedy of the Amish children...not get into heated debates about lawlessness, gun control and a USA/Mexico debate.
Start a new thread for that, please, and say a prayer for the dead and their families.

WTF are you talking about? What the hell does Corruption in Mexico have to do with a School Shooting in Pennsylvania, and how the hell does that relate to any "Magic Law" I'd demand or fail to deman be passed in Mexico.

I think you better but down your bong and take a break - that's what I think.

Thanks God than in Europe firearms are not so simple to obtain.

Yeah, Italy...that last bastion of civility. NOTHING corrupt or bad happens there! Get over it.

Maybe a former disgruntled Amish?

For a very serious matter...I had to actually chuckle at that---it just sounds funny.

Quoting SW733 (Reply 11):
The issue isn't firearms anymore, the issue is that Americans seem to do nothing about this whole thing, no protests, nothing. I mean, what will it take to impose discipline in schools?

We tried closing the whole country down in protest like Guatemala would, but we decided not to be a third world country this time around. Sorry.
