    America, guns... death. America, bullies, guns, death. America wage war overseas. America wages war at home. USA, the land of the disturbed.

      Of course we are a shining example of all that is good, sane and comprehensible

      goyougoodthing - 2012-08-05 21:43

      Not at all, but the US seems to think it's the global police - they should start at home the mongrels.

      Clint - if you ever earn enough money to get out of the hole you are in living in Durban, and your sick government gives you freedom of your finances, I recommend going anywhere but America. Somalia would make a lovely home don't you think?

    Not only in the US, look what happened in Oslo. It can and will happen all over the world.

      goyougoodthing - 2012-08-05 21:43

      Yes, and it happens weekly in the US

      lacrimose.wolf - 2012-08-05 21:47

      Purely because they have a bigger population considering USA spans over half a continent. Killings happen daily here. No-one calls us mongrels - well not yet, any way.

      Really. Mass shootings all over India... NOT

      lacrimose.wolf - 2012-08-05 21:58

      Really, mass sale of children into slavery, bombings, killing of daughters? Insanity and depravity manifest in different ways depending on what one's (ahem) departure point is and what pressures cause the brain to finally short-circuit.

      @goyougoodthing - A few years back a bunch of terrorists killed hundreds in india. Futher stats here -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chronology_of_terrorist_incidents_in_India Like lownabester said, it happens the world over.

    Interesting that the White dude who shot people last week wasnt shot dead by the police but this Asian shooter was shot!!#just sayind#

      Turning it into a racist thing again... you muppet. Imagine a day when you can't throw in a race card, your brain will cease up and die.

      lacrimose.wolf - 2012-08-05 22:23

      tumisang - I think you are a bit behind in reading the news updates. 'Batman' killer is white and on his way to trial

      "According to information broadcast over police radio, a witness to the shooting told law enforcement the shooter was a white male, bald, with a heavy build." When you're "just saying" something, does neural activity occur at all?

      Oops, forgot to provide a link, my bad. http://abcnews.go.com/US/dead-sikh-temple-shooting-oak-creek-wisconsin-milwaukee/story?id=16933779#.UB7VFc_R6IA

      Tumisang - the shooter in Colorado turned himself in to police. Read the entire story before commenting. It makes sense to want to capture the criminal alive. The description of this shooter has not yet been released. Don't assume and post or else you appear illiterate.

    But why why?

      lacrimose.wolf - 2012-08-05 22:20

      @Harold - that is the one thing we never get to know. Mysteries of the human mind.

      pisciotta - 2012-08-05 22:58

      Same answer to "Kill the Boer". Why? At least in America killers do not mass together and chant death then argue if that lyric is offensive.

      pisciotta - 2012-08-05 23:17

      Harold - The "Gang'stas" in the USA are wearing their brims to the other side now.

    Evil inside our minds, everyone is angry. Poverty, government, money, colour, fake churches. What is happening in Syria one day will happen to whole world. What have we done? Why are we so angry?

    In America if you go to school you migth get shot,if you go to the movies you migth get shot,if you go to temple you migth get shot. So enter at your risk sign shoul be every where...

      boffin.bobreturns - 2012-08-06 07:34

      In South Africa, you might get shot or stabbed to death, doing any of lifes daily activities. We " imprison " ourselves in our own homes as the " risk factor " is so high. There should be signs along the roads, depicting those that one should be wary of. Forget the big 5. We have some of the most dangerous " human " species " on the planet amongst us !

      jaba.kov - 2012-08-06 08:39

      We do have signs... Hijacking hot spots... Just because the ANC does not allow our press to report crime as they should, does not make us any safer.
