China has a Rash of Knife Attacks on Schoolchildren

Posted by PITHOCRATES - December 22nd, 2012

Week in Review

The U.S. is not the only country where schoolchildren are being hurt (see Knife-wielding man injures 22 children in China by Terril Yue Jones posted 12/14/2012 on Reuters).

A knife-wielding man slashed 22 children and an adult at an elementary school in central China on Friday, state media reported, the latest in a series of attacks on schoolchildren in the country…

There have been a series of attacks on schools and schoolchildren around China in recent years, some by people who have lost their jobs or felt left out of the country’s economic boom.

The rash of violence has prompted public calls for more measures to protect the young in a country where many couples only have one child.

In 2010, a man slashed 28 children, two teachers and a security guard in a kindergarten in eastern China.

The Left is always saying we should adopt China’s economic policies.  Great state involvement in the private sector.  Because it makes for a surging economy.  Where the state spends billions on make-work projects.  Making sure everyone has a job.  Except these people attacking defenseless schoolchildren apparently.

Bad things happen.  Even where people don’t have guns.  So who will the Chinese blame?  Knife manufacturers?  For if anything is clear these kids would not have been slashed if there were no knives.  Because no deranged individual would have ever thought to pick up a hammer, a crowbar, a rock or even a pointed stick.  No, it was the knife that pushed these people to these heinous acts.  And without knives they would have just sat home the days of their heinous attacks looking for jobs in the want ads.
