No big deal though, it didn't involve a gun.

Well, what did kill her? We need to know so we can ban whatever tool killed her that was connected with the unfortunate young man.

Box cutter, but those are only unsafe on a plane.


I also forgot to point out that it could have been Obama's son.

The NBC Nightly News covered this, but they specifically avoided mentioning how she was killed, leaving up to viewers to assume she was shot. They even mentioned the "this happening only days after a teacher and students were shot at blah blah blah..." to create that impression.

I mentioned that in the other thread. You see him on TV he actually does look like he could be Obama's son, from certain angles.

Apparently he killed her because she made him stay after school for extra help in math (the creepy cracker).

It's the kind of subtle spin and selective omission they are famous for.

The news media always mentions the method of killing, because it's exactly the kind of detail that makes their stories sensational. The only reason it was omitted here is because it would steal thunder from "ZOMG teh guuunz!!!" :roll:

And yet some people think Their Favorite News Source is unbiased, and only Fox has an agenda.

You ought to bring legislation banning teenagers owning box-cutters in the immediate vicinity of a school.

Nobody needs box cutters. Those scissors with rounded ends are just fine.

We should have universal background checks for the purchase of box cutters.

Well, she wasn't ugly, so there might be a little care.
