These happened in my home town, just a few yards from where my mom works. One of my high school classmate's father was shot but survived.

And for some reason not considered an act of "terrorism". Guess it wasn't brown people doing the shooting.

:confused: For some stupid reason I thought it was considered and act of "domestic terrorism". Didn't know you had to be brown to be a terrorist.:clueless:

Actually, this is the shooter:




I wouldn't call this terrorism. Terrorism advances a political agenda. Cho was just nuts.

Terrorism doesn't always have to advance a political agenda. Some terrorize for the sake of terrorism.

This along with many other mass shootings are just senseless acts of violence that just is hard to grasp. It leaves me heartbroken for those that have suffered direct losses, and for America that loses great human potential. Very sad, I just always wish for a better outcome that people that go on these shooting sprees encounter someone that shoots back before they can hurt so many people kind of like what happened in that church shooting awhile back when an armed lady pulled a gun and killed the shooter.

BTW Blyons, this thread isn't in the political forum, so many here might not get your sarcasm. Your comments are more fitting to the political forum rather than the studio lounge.
