I Guess We Don’t Have a Monopoly on Sickos

Mass stabbing of school children in China. Apparently there’s been a rash of them in that country. But it seems this guy had no apparent motive:

No motive was given for the stabbings, which echo a string of similar assaults against schoolchildren in 2010 that killed nearly 20 and wounded more than 50. The most recent such attack took place in August, when a knife-wielding man broke into a middle school in the southern city of Nanchang and stabbed two students before fleeing.

Seems that in China, most of these are perpetrated by people who have mental health disorders, which is also the case here. It would be interesting to know if China is also deinstitutionalizing its mentally ill, as we have been doing here for some time.

  1. Yeah I stumbled across that as I was searching for stuff for the post I just did. There was another one in 2010 too IIRC, that was the one I was originally looking for.

    There was a spree attack in China in ’95 (I think) where the perpetrator went to the trouble to build from scratch several firearms to use in his crime.
