local finish paper , original story

translation

to the best of our knowlege the incident started at around 11am and the situvation is still at hand,
with the information avalible the we know it is a male in his 20´s and the shooter is still in the building,
police has evacuated around 200 students, death toll might be many

the shootings at jokelas school come instantly in mind and this case might have simular youtube videos uploaded

the online video provider site youtube contains at the moment several suspicius videos where a male from kauhavajoki is at a shooting range, the last video update was made 5days ago

at the moment we dont know if the videos and the shooeter are related

There are clear connections between the youtube videos and profiles of the Pekka Eric Auvinen, the sick bastard behind the Jokela incident and the suspect in this latest incident.

Both feature nihilistic and facistic ideologies.

UPDATE:
AFP reports that the shooter has been caught. AFP claims that their reporter heard it from the police radio. (highly unlikely as Finnish police radio is hevily encrypted)

YLE NEWS (Finnish government owned):
Shooter is dead and emergency personel is entering the school



posted on Sep, 23 2008 @ 05:00 AM
link   
FOX and CNN both say "several dead including shooter who committed suicide"


WHY, WHY do they always wait and let the shooter commit suicide? Does Finland not have armed police? Here the US (since Columbine) most agencies train their officers to immediately engage an armed suspect and not wait for SWAT thus reducing the death toll in many cases.

Police in Finland is always armed (Glock 17s with Speer Gold Dots). But the local police departments are not very experienced in armed operations and most police officers newer have to use their guns in real situations. Also local PD probably had 2-4 officers at duty, you can't storm in when the back up is 75kms away.
