Seven People Dead in Japan Mass Killing

In a mass killing involving a guy with, what I’m guessing must have been a rather large knife.

“The suspect told police that he came to Akihabara to kill people,” said Jiro Akaogi, a spokesman for the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department. “He said he was tired of life. He said he was sick of everything.”

News reports said the man crashed a rented, two-ton truck into pedestrians, then jumped out of the truck and began stabbing the people he’d knocked down before turning on horrified onlookers.

Maybe we need some restrictions on two ton trucks and sharp pointy things.

    The brits already tried to ban pointy knives. I think they felt a bit stupid, and I don’t think it got anywhere.
