  • Shooting in Amish School. Whats the world coming to?

    This is on CNN.com

    NICKEL MINES, Pennsylvania (AP) -- A gunman killed "a number" of people at a one-room Amish schoolhouse Monday in Pennsylvania's bucolic Lancaster County, state police said.
    The shooter was among the dead, and a number of people were injured, said state police Cpl. Ralph Striebig.
    "There are a number of people dead," Striebig said. "The exact number I do not know yet." (Watch helicopter video from the scene of the shooting -- 1:00 )
    Police surrounded the one-room school late Monday morning, and the Lancaster County 911 Web site reported that dozens of emergency units were dispatched to a "medical emergency" at 10:45 a.m.
    Two hours later, about three dozen people in traditional Amish clothing, hats and bonnets stood near the small school building speaking to one another, several young people and authorities. At least two ambulances had left the scene, and at least one person was taken on a stretcher to a medical helicopter.
    Officials at the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center confirmed that victims were being admitted there. A spokeswoman said the hospital anticipated more than one patient, but did not know how many.

              DO they know if he was a part of the school (student) or just a random guy?

              To live would be an awfully big adventure.

                    Just heard on the news that 3 of the people killed were little girls.

                      This stuff just sickens me.........
                      ......I guess we just need to remember the families and say a special prayer for them.

                      I'd also like to go beat the tar out of the people that committed the murders.

                        I think the ones in really bad neighborhoods do. The Amish don't live by most of our society rules, so most of them probably don't even know that there has been a problem with school shootings. But because of that, I can imagine the Amish community being very shocked and devastated at what had happened.

                          I agree, including when it comes to murdering children.

                            Oh most definately. When I was there (granted this was over 10 years ago) they were all some of the most polite and respectful people Ive ever met.

                              I don't think that's completely true... I'm sure they know that there's been a problem in schools, but I'm sure that they never thought it could happen at their schools.


                              The Amish may set themselves apart, but they still live in a world real enough that they know about what's going on in the world. Trust me -- I was among the Amish on 9/11.

                                I know! I mean, they are totally harmless. I mean, I put myself in the childs 'shoes' at the moment all of this is happening...........I remember when I was a kid scared and wanting my mom and dad and all the emotion that goes with that........the alone feeling, the uncertainty, the fear, ..........and it just crushes me inside. I'm getting welled up with tears just thinking of it. These poor innocent children..........

                                  True.
                                  Like I said:
                                  "The Amish don't live by most of our society rules."

                                  I mean I have seen them shopping at Wal Mart on several occassions. So over the years, the Amish have realized that in some instances, they have to bend their beliefs just so their own life could be a bit more easier.

                                    I am thinking this person must not have been Amish because he was using stuff like Cellphones to call his ex-wife. He said the crime was committed because of something that happened in their marriage 20 years ago.

                                      It is terrible what happened. The shooter, from what i've heard, was a milk truck driver who lived about a mile from the schoolhouse. 3 are dead, not including the shooter, last I heard.

                                      But remember, there are different types of amish from different orders and they all have their own rules and way of life.

                                      They are saying it was because of something that had happened 20 years ago, if the gunman was 32, he couldn't have been married when he was 12, when the event occured.
                                      Press today is so concerned with cool vs. not cool that they're starting to forget good vs. bad. I'm not sure I'll ever be "cool", but I will always tirelessly strive to be "great". - Josh Groban

                                        You know....sometimes life hands us lemons, and you know the old saying - make lemonade.

                                        My Grandpa's Mom died when he was 4 in 1922 - but he didn't go and shoot things up. My Aunt's Dad's father left when HE was 2 - and he didn't go shoot things up. These two men made better lives for themselves - they didn't live the life of a VICTIM.

                                        That's what wrong with today - everyone wants to play the VICTIM so they can act out of line - that being shooting an Amish school up.

                                        Whatever happened 20 years ago does not warrant killing children - EVER.
