    Question WTF is going on on China?

    I can't link to it all, but lately this spring there have been several attacks on schoolchildren and teachers.

    The latest is a man that hacked to death 7 kindergartners and a teacher.

    Looks like China needs a war to kill off excess men.

    Perhaps these related attacks are just coincidentally related?

    If not, I suppose that this recent spree would be Chinas variant of Americas school shootings or British pretentious drive-by insults.

    I don't want to insult these murdered people, but maybe there is some link between these murders and the criminalization of dog and cat meat in Chinas food. Perhaps butchers and restaraunt owners are getting desperate and are trying to make the ends 'meat' by grabbing tasty children.

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    Crazed, seemingly random attacks happen with some frequency in East Asia. Despite the hype, the worst spree killer in history wasn't American. He was a South Korean named Woo Bum-kon, who killed 57 people (including himself) in 1982.

    That's kinda crazy how history works. Man goes on killing rampage - possibly inadvertently helps another man become future president of the country? ^^re: wiki

    @Mac, I think maybe it's copy cat crimes done by highly impressionable/sociopathic/ potentially dangerous individuals.

    There are a lot of school shootings in the US and randomly picking on children/girls/women isn't strange at all in the states either. I don't know why the Amish school killer and that guy who targeted an aerobics class (and admitted to being motivated because of 'rejection by women') didn't get extra punishment for 'hate crimes'.

    The one thing in common worldwide is it's almost always men committing the crimes.

    China specifically is a "really big country", so there are statistically more 'bad apples' and chances for craziness?

    That is a good point and inescapable, no matter how many fem fatales or whatever there are its the men that appear to be going on the rampages and I think is significant.

    On the other hand I did read a good piece not long ago, I think it was a book on psycho-analysis and either masochism or perversion, which examined the extent to which womens violence, differing from men, was frequently treated differently in the media, therefore cultural filters operated differently and lives were lost as a consequence (the examples used where cases in the UK of a nurse killing children in her care, it was effectively serial killing).

    It could just be the same behaviour happens but is different in each gender? Its pretty bullshit as a source but I remember an episode of criminal minds or something in which the profilers suggested "women kill people they love" men dont discriminate in the same way.

    It is a big country, is it any more patriarchal? Is that even important?

    Personally I think the only correlate in all the cases globally is that killers go for soft targets, even if they intend to off themselves after the spree they dont storm, for the most part, army bases, armed police stations, outlaw biker barracks and the like.

    But why rampages against children?

    Guy gets fired, shoots up his workplace. I understand the target there.

    Crazy logic still has a logic to it.
