Tyler Durden's picture

Mass killings have now become a daily thing. The latest attack however took place not in Europe, nor the US, but Japan, where national broadcaster NHK reports that a knife-wielding man has reportedly gone on a rampage at a facility for people with heart disabilities in the city of Sagamihara, west of Tokyo.

Police say 19 people are confirmed dead and 45 are injured.

According to Tokyo Reporter, at approximately 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday, police received a tip about “a man with a knife” at the Tsukui Yamayuri-en facility in Midori Ward. Officers arriving at the scene confirmed 19 people dead another 45 injured. 

About 30 minutes later, a former employee, aged in his 20s, turned himself over to officers at the Sagamihara Police Station. He was subsequently arrested for murder. “I did it,” the man was quoted in admitting to the charges.

It's obviously Putin's fault.

"this is the fault of powerful lobbyists at the NKA (National Knife Association)."

"nobody needs a high powered assault knife for deer hunting."

I don't care if they were handicapped or not, stabbing 66 people until 20 are dead is another superhuman feat.  Mofo must have been hitting the dojo.  Do you know how many stab thrusts that would take penetrating tissue and even bone?  Were all of them paralyzed?  Even then.  Maybe he is related to a Japanese war diety.  It seems that this is happening at every end of the empire.  BS until proven otherwise.

Not the first example. In the 1990's a man went into a shopping mall in Japan with a samurai sword and got about the same body count. Same in China; one in a school and another in a train station.

Proof positive that 'gun control' does not keep people from killing each other or stop mass killings.

If the ISIS actors ever got their hands on decent Japanese yanagibas (very long, VERY SHARP, sashimi knives)their beheading videos would look very different. If the Muslim hordes come over hill from the Germany, rifles are good at distance, but the head choppers in my knife blocks don't need to be reloaded, unlike firearms, and they sever arteries and cut to the bone with almost no pressure and very quickly.

Well he did choose to run down and frighten to death people exclusively at a heart clinic.
So there was some foresight.  He treated others more kindly though.

Was it someone named Beatrix, wearing a wig and yellow leather jump suit with a Samurai sword riding on a Kawaski rice rocket?

When knives are outlawed, only outlaws - and Benihana chefs - will have knives

In response to the attack all cutting utensils have been banned from the premises. Heart sugreons will be expected to carry out their duties with plastic spoons and wooden chopsticks.

Ban everything except plastic sporks!

Gerbils were the vector that brought the plague from China to eastern Europe in the 1300s. Never underestimate the danger of gerbils.

MsCreant's picture

Gerbil's are most deadly when inserted rectally. We should make cartoon posters about this for the innocent, unacculturated, Muslims or there might be yet another tragedy.

Badgers, on the other hand, are perfectly safe and often used to complement colonic irrigation.

Best results are achieved with the dual insertion of a weasel. Any impacted segments will be clawed clean.

20 people blinded today as woman goes on rampage with a plastic fork. Police in Queensland said woman visiting a nail salon began stabbing people in a maniacal frenzy.

Quick.  Find something and ban it.  Will make the world a safer place.  Think of the children.

In all fairness, most of the knife-related deaths in Japan are suicides.

Ban every sharp, pointy thing to make the world safe.

Must have been a high capacity knife.

And after slicing up all those people the knife will still cut through a can and easily slice a tomato.

knukles's picture

Don't slice till you see the whites of their eyes.  (Otherwise coulda been a whole lot worse)

Just be glad he didn't have a sledgeomatic.

If it was in America, they'd be interviewing the CEO of the company that made the knife for what their future policy chances will be to prevent this kind of chrisis in the future.
