CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — A Wyoming community college instructor killed in a grisly classroom murder-suicide was hailed as a hero Saturday, with police saying he gave his students time to flee by distracting and fighting off his son after the younger man barged into his computer science class and shot him in the head with a high-powered bow and arrow.
The arrow severely wounded James Krumm, 56, but he managed to wrestle with son Christopher Krumm, 25, of Vernon, Conn., on Friday while the handful of students in the Casper College classroom escaped.

I'll wait to here what "medications" he was on before forming a hypothesis.
I do know a lot of NFL players are on Adderall, and God knows what else. They have a substance exemption for medications like Adderall, though it may inadvertently enhance their performance.
I use to take that stuff, it's no joke.
I remember strange & foreign thoughts entering my mind at different times, thoughts that weren't my own, which is why I called them foreign. I've heard similar statements from others on specific medications.
I'm pretty sure I've figured out what's going on with meds & peoples' abnormal behaviors, but I'll let you guys put those pieces together and figure it out on your own, if you haven't already.

I just want to encourage you to continue to keep the wonderful positive outlook about your husband's condition. It's great you understand that his episodes are not directed at you personally, but are merely a symptom. Don't allow it to get you down. Just continue showing him the love I'm sure he deserves, and the support he needs.
As for the bow and arrow attack: that is an absolutely hideous way to attack somebody, much less your own father! I could not imagine the horror that poor man felt. I pray his death was a painless as possible, considering the situation. This madness has got to stop. I know it won't, until that Eastern sky splits.edit on 2-12-2012 by jeramie because: (no reason given)

people refuse to believe that evil forces exist. evil energies that can influence a persons thoughts and drive them mad.
they believe them and then start doing very evil things. and when they have accomplished whatever evil act they have committed, this "energy" leaves them, the torment stops and extreme guilt sets in at what they have done and end up killing themselves.
the bible describes one of these events in the New Testament, when Judas betrayed Jesus.
you can't claim to believe in Jesus, God and ignore the evil forces that are all around us.
you can't just chalk this up to low seratonin levels. and every psychological illness starts of with "no known cause" or "scientist don't know what causes it".
maybe they are looking at the wrong spot. the can describe the illness, but they refuse to acknowledge possible outside influences because of religious hatred.
i think the scientist that goes to where ever it leads him will make progress in this field. to accept these evil energies and then reverse or stop the damage they do to the brain.

Sent you a U2U
I was watching this on the news the other day, crazy,
although for this area a bow and arrow are just about as
common as a gun. (MT here).
Most hunters prefer to bow hunt, mainly because they get
more hunting time, and they enjoy the challenge.
Honestly i am surprised there are not more reports of attacks
with a compound bow.

This is exactly why bows shouldn't be legal.
It really makes me wonder what's wrong. A generation or two ago, people didn't need these meds. Now suddenly lots of people need them.
