  • 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.
