I post this piece of news because i AM a student in this particular school,
and this event happened too deep within my comfort zone.
I was not present at the day because i didn´t have any classes, but several of my classmates were.
The event described to me is as follows; the guy walked into the canteen during lunch hour, went behind a randomly selected girl and stabbed her. Then
the person next to her.
A older person in the canteen managed to throw a glass towards the perpetrator which got him to leave the canteen into the lobby, where two more
stabbings took place. Eventually the guy was cornered and ordered to give up his weapons and lay on the ground. In his backpack the police discovered
a ski-mask and two more blades.
One thing that all agreed upon when today this event was discussed in the class, the perpetrator had a crazy, glazed look in his eyes.
And all the victims were completely random.
What is this?
A 16-year old does this?
Stabs three 16-year old girls and 21-year old man?
A mad world we live in.
Today, in the morning while walking there, i was thinking about what kind of atmosphere would i encounter when i got there? One filled with fear and
I faced the exact opposite, lighthearted and people smiling.
All the victims have recovered well, one has
already been released from hospital and the rest within couple of days.
I am over 35 and part of an adult educational program.
