A young boy, 17 years old, went on a stabbing spree in Tokyo killing one, and injuring two others. He was not a student at the school and police are not sure how he gained entrance. This caused a panic with the students who ran outside to safety.
TOKYO (AP) - A 17-year-old boy armed with a knife burst into a public elementary school in western Japan on Monday, stabbing one teacher to death and slashing two other adults, police said.

A 52-year-old male teacher was declared dead after the assault while a 57-year-old female teacher was seriously injured with knife wounds in her stomach, police said. The nutritionist, 45, was also being treated for injuries.

Kyodo News reported the attacker, 17, had graduated from the elementary school, but police were unable to confirm that report because he was refusing to talk, Noda said.

The increase in young children killing other students must be a problem within either the home, or, the school children who tease , are cruel, laugh, and make fun of others, who are not popular. Children who often poke fun, or, are not with the 'in' crowd often feel left out and feel alone. This boy may not have experienced any of those things, but, there is a reason as to why he did this.
He obviously had a plan,stabbing 3 adults,killing one of them, a 52 year old teacher, and ... knowing how to enter the school all conclude there had to be a reason behind what he did, and a plan
Japan must realize that with the rising number of crimes, involving young people, it has a very serious problem on its hands. Related News Links:

YOu know the problem? 6 effing billion of us on this planet, breeding like rabbits with no such thing as natural selection / survival of the fitest. This means many flawed assets are making into our gene pool, thus amouting to many flawed individuals in society.

This kind of action is common amongst our species - it just that communications are better now so we get to hear a out it more. I can remember living in new zealand and hearing about violent killings at leat once a month there. New Zealand has a population of around 4 million...

Anyway we now reap the consequences of that double edge sword called love and compassion... hmm you may say hate and anger are the problems, but it is love and compassion that got us to this point.

At least the damage was kept to a minimum because he only used a knife.
