So far at least 7 or 8 people killed, apparently the shooter-asshole tried to off himself but couldn't even kill himself.. what an asshole. Hope he stays as a vegetable for the rest of his fucking miserable life.

"At least seven people were reported killed when an 18-year-old gunman opened fire at a school in Finland Wednesday, in a shooting that appeared to have been planned out in graphic videos posted on Internet sharing site YouTube.

Medical officials told CNN affiliate MTV that the headmistress of the school in Tuusula, near Helsinki, was among the dead. It was not clear if the gunman was included in the fatalities."

Now you can get back to posting your setlist threads.

Original Post
It's really hard to deal these news. I've been living and working my whole life here in Tuusula (35000 residents), and last 4 years worked in elementary school and pre-school. Shooting happened in Jokela (one of the three centers in Tuusula with about 5000 residents). Always felt safe here, but looks like horrible things can happen even in small places like this.
" School Massacre - 11/7/2007." "Sturmgeist89" identified himself as Auvinen, and said he chose the name "Sturmgeist" because it means "storm spirit" in German.

The video showed a picture of the school, which then disintegrated to reveal two images of Auvinen against a red background, pointing a gun at the screen.

The clip is accompanied by the track "Stray Bullet", by rock band KMFDM, whose lyrics were also quoted by Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, the students behind the Columbine High School massacre of 1999.

Another short video clip, called "Just Testing My Gun," showed Auvinen loading and cocking a handgun. He fired and hit several pieces of fruit in a wooded area; the camera then showed a close-up of the destroyed fruit, and then a full-screen shot of him again. He waved at the camera and then walked out of view.

The site indicated that the youth appeared to be fascinated with killing. As well as video footage of the Columbine school shootings, it also included clips of the 1993 Waco siege in the United States, the 1995 sarin gas attack in Tokyo, and bombs falling on Baghdad during the 2003 invasion. "

"Despite having the third-largest per capita ratio of handgun ownership in the world.."

zeke and Ev2 - I'm very sorry this has happened in your country and hope all your friends and loved ones are safe.

Our youngest daughter is living this year just 2.5 hrs West of Tuusula, on a student exchange. Fortunately, none of her friends or acquaintances are directly affected by this. We were happy she chose Finland as her exchange country - we never imagined that anything like this could possibly happen in a Finnish school.

You have a beautiful country and my daughter has been welcomed by wonderful people. My best wishes to you and to the families of the victims in this terrible tragedy.

I'm not sure which wingnuts your referring to since I equate gun control and democrats. That said, it doesn't really matter because nutjobs like this will find a way to make homemade explosive, or use a knife, or use a broken bottle, etc. to do what they want to do.
If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will.

It's all a question of efficiency, I suppose. Let's keep that nutjob:victim ratio up there!

Now that's a retarded statement ...

Well . . . when was the last time a crazy person killed several students with a broken beer bottle or a steak knife?


My comment was more rhetorical than literal. Does the means of killing really make a difference to you?

Here's the new Dana version of Clue: Dylan Klebold, in YOUR child's school, with a:

1. broken bottle;
2. knife;
3. homemade explosive; or
4. semi-automatic firearm modified to be fully automatic.

Voting is now open.
