Ban Knives? High School Student Goes On Stabbing Rampage In Pennsylvania School

Tyler Durden's picture

Another day another dismal headline of some killing spree and while the American people is becoming almost numb to these dreadful occurrences, this one was different. As Reuters reports, twenty people were injured, at least nine seriously, when a student at a Pittsburgh-area high school went on a stabbing rampage early on Wednesday. We are sure the administration is closely watching the events and considering what actions to take to ensure this does not happen again. The good news, for now, is that no one has died but indications are that these are very serious injuries.

 

As Reuters reports, seven students between the ages of 15 and 17 and one adult were admitted to Forbes Regional Hospital in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, with stab wounds.

"These are all very serious injuries," hospital spokesman Jesse Miller said in a telephone interview.

 

The attacks took place in several classrooms and hallways as the school day began at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville, 20 miles east of Pittsburgh, county emergency management officials said. The first 911 call was received at 7:13 a.m. EDT.

 

Three of the patients admitted were in surgery and all eight were in critical condition, hospital spokesman Miller said.

 

He said a ninth patient who had arrived at the hospital was airlifted to another facility.

The school district posted an emergency message on its website on Wednesday.

"A critical incident has occurred at the high school," the message said. "All elementary schools are canceled, the middle school and high school students are secure."

Zak Amsler, a 17-year-old junior at the school, said the attack occurred just before his first class was scheduled to begin.

"I saw a girl with blood running out of her sleeve," Amsler said as he waited to pick up his younger sister, a student at the nearby middle school. "It was pretty mind-blowing."

 

Stevens, the county official, noted that the scene had been contained. "The students that are here are safe," he told reporters.

It's not just the US though, as CBC reports, 4 people were stabbed in a Toronto office today:

One man is in custody after Toronto police say at least four people were stabbed at an office building in the northern part of the city today.

 

Police said the attack happened just after 9:30 a.m. ET on the fifth floor of an office complex at 4110 Yonge St., near York Mills Avenue.

 

Police received multiple 911 calls of an assailant attacking people with a sharp object.

 

A man and a woman in their 30s are among the people who were stabbed. The two suffered multiple, serious stab wounds, according to police, and are in critical condition in hospital.

 

Two other men whose ages are not known were transported with serious wounds to a trauma centre.

So what next? Spoons only at lunch? Knives issued only with RFIDs?

Why do we need knives in our modern society when we can use sporks instead?

mickeyman's picture

When I was in high school one of the kids stabbed another with a cafeteria fork. Next up--chopsticks!

19 Stabbed.

Zero dead. 

 

Yeah, totally equivalent to every school shooting. 

 

0b1knob's picture

I realize that you are trying to be sarcastic, but do you realize that England actrually DOES have laws banning almost all knives with draconian penalties for violators?

James_Cole's picture

I'm sure lots of countries have lots of crazy things, just pointing out one of the main corporate talking points looks pretty ridiculous in this context. Though, the slow brains on here are already towing their masters line..

Manthong's picture

Anything that can cause a puncture wound needs to be banned.

Most importantly, we need to ban semi-automatic staplers.

Only single-shot, manually loaded staplers should be allowed.

PT's picture

C'mon, you guys are new at this.  Give everyone a bit more time to practise and they'll be as good as a Chinaman.

And while I was looking for that, I found this:

here's my proposed solution:

a) let all the kids chill out by smoking weed

b) make sure everyone's getting laid

 

problem solved.

I can't upvote you enough

There has been substantial progress to that effect over the last few years..

Shrapnel's picture

Don't forget "unusual dreams" LOL

Save_America1st's picture

nearly 100 deaths per day in America from car accidents.  Guess they'll want to ban cars next.  But we all should know the authoritarian scum of this nation and this world don't give a rat fuck about who dies or why as long as they can use it against the rest of the population through some form of restriction and control. 

There are many sick fucks in government and beaurocracy who actually love when shit like this happens and can't wait for it to happen just so they can pounce on the issue and try to ban shit and fuck with our freedom.  Sometimes they don't wait and they create false flags just to push the issue faster into the light because they're filthy, treasonous, scubm.  Those fuckers are as sick as the fuckers who commit the crimes. 

Sane people know that there are insane and tremendously stupid people all around all the time who can do shit like this at any moment.  Sane people are aware, alert, prepared, and know self defense, and carry weapons to DEFEND themselves with and others if necessary.  Cops are not our personal security gaurds, and are always many minutes away when seconds are what actually count in a dangerous situation.  Cops are not obligated to even help us if they choose not to, and are usually only there after the fact to take notes, clean up the mess, and write a report.

But again, that's not really the issue anymore.  Marxist filth have taken over the government and now it's a rotted, corrupt, treasonous mess.  And those fuckers are going to do everything they can to overthrow this country if it's the last thing they do.  And they have to disarm us first, kill many of us, jail many of us, and destroy our childrens minds with their brain-rot bullshit in order to brainwash our right to own weapons if we choose to.

They'll also bring in tens of millions of illegal immigrants and give them voting rights along with all kinds of free goodies at our expense in order to vote away our 2nd amendment rights.  The process has been on-going for over 100 years and if anyone reading this thinks those mother fuckers are about to stop now after all this time and being as close as they think they are to winning, then you've got another thing coming.

They're never going to stop legislating, lying, false flagging, harassing, stealing, corrupting, and attacking us until either they get their way or we all fight back and wipe them out of this country completely.  There's no dealing with these fuckers any other way.  There's no comprimise with them, and quite fucking frankly there's no G-Damn reason for any patriotic Americans to comprimise with criminal, Marxist, traitors when it comes to our god-given rights in this country. 

Wanna know why?  Because, FUCK THEM...that's why.  They want to live in hell then they can jump on a boat to North fucking Korea, but we aren't going to let them make our lives and our country a living fucking hell because they're all such fucking tyrannical, power hungry, dictatorial, sociopaths that the only thing that makes those miserable fucks happy is to make life miserable for everybody else. 

Fuck 'em all and Molon Labe.  If they want to ban our rights then they're going to have to come and take them.  They know they can't win a straight up fight against the likes of 100 million heavily armed Americans who won't ever quit fighting back.  Fucking pussies is what they are. 

/rant off 

 

 

Manthong's picture

I think that the .gov sick pussies actually don't appreciate this kind of incident because it takes the attention away from guns.

..but I concur wholeheartedly with the rant. 

StychoKiller's picture

Just limit the magazine size on knives to 10 stabs...oh wait...

New England Patriot's picture

What capacity was this knife, and did it have a pistol grip or flash suppressor?

ZeroPoint's picture

I bet he bought at a gun show too. Close that loophole! /snark

N2OJoe's picture

No one should be allowed to own high capacity, military style Assault Knives such as this.

He probably only needed 3 suppressor clips for his barrel shroud and that shoulder thingy that goes up!

moonstears's picture

Did it resemble a small sword? "Assault style" knife?? Good question, Sir!

Manthong's picture

How can you tell the difference between an assault scimitar and one whose purpose is strictly self-defense?

StychoKiller's picture

I bought a Katana for my Daughter, but she has a black belt in Kundo.  Trust me on this, Katanas are razor-sharp!

PT's picture

I have a black belt in macrame.  Mess with me and I'll tie you in knots.  My gf is worse.  She is an expert in the marital arts.  That shit is really scary - end up as a mindless zombie for the rest of your life - "Yes, dear ...  No dear ... Okay, I'll do that, yes of course I'll take the rubbish out ... "

Stabbings are de rigueur in the UK...that ever takes off here, I'm packing.
Concealed permit or no.

Ritalin? Violent video games? Security Theatre?
As long as someone's making a buck....

On a lighter note, I picked up my son from his after school program yesterday...The dronelette demanded to see my (presumably real ) I.D. first because "she didn't know me"
I looked at my kid and asked him "who am I?". He said "your my dad".
Then I asked to see her I.D. Saying; "how do I know you didn't kidnap this room full of kids??" Hilarity ensued.

Skateboarder's picture

+1 for a most necessary display of wit and reason. Hell with the "lemme see some ID" mentality engrained in everyone, everwhere, everywhen today.

Totally disgusting, the enforcement of kids as being lesser humans than adults. Our ancestors turn in their graves.

Bananamerican's picture

it's the enforcement of PARENTS being lesser than some minimum wage drone or school "officials" that gets me.

I told my son, if ANYONE: teacher, cop, Prez or perv says "get over here" in my presence he is to come to me. Why? Because I love him and they DON'T.

The sickening thing is that I even have to say such a thing to my eight year old in this fascist backwater previously known as "the land of the Free™"

Manthong's picture

She would have dropped that interrogative if you mentioned that you were also there to vote.

de3de8's picture

Of course unless your voting

Manthong's picture

.. did not read all the way down :-)

drendebe10's picture

..and yet no govt photo ID to vote? Go figger...

Headbanger's picture

Ban the fucking violent video games!

Chewybunny's picture

Even though little evidence suggests that it may have anything to do with violent video games, and a hell of a lot more evidence pointing out to mind-altering psychotropic drugs that virtually ALL these kids were on. But that's right, let's just get all PTA about it instead, how dare I question the sanctity of doctors?

 

Raymond K Hessel's picture

Ban you!  In fact, why don't you go ban yourself?  Ban yourself right up the ass.

Surging Chaos's picture

Why is it that EVERY TIME something like this happens people are wanting to ban anything and everything?

"This needs to be banned!"

"There ought to be a law!"

Seriously, you're about as bad as the gun-grabbing leftists.

Pretty sure that he was joking.

Yeah, they should be outside playing cops and robbers, or cowboys and indians, or armies, or ...

I'm selling Knife Free Zone signs.  Any takers?

"Hand Free" Zone signs?   Hands are the common denominator in this ongoing scourge!

In other news, Obama's auntie who was living illegally in the US was suicided to prevent her from embarrasing our most transparent president on a continual basis.

Bananamerican's picture

You may be onto something, Silver.
I see a long school wall poster (right after the "if you see something, say something (actual) and "Stranger Danger" posters) showing a gun a knife a taser a bazooka a peanut and a brain, all with red slashes thru them....oh and No Honking!
