| March 24th, 2010

From Netease:

March 23 Morning, in Nanping, Fujian Province a man appeared to be mentally ill brandished a knife at the entrance of Luantong Nanping experimental elementary school during the time when students were just arriving to school. He continuously stabled and cut 13 elementary students. Currently, 9 children were killed and the other 4 are in critical condition and being rescued in the hospitals. The suspect was arrested by the police. 42 year old Zheng Mingsheng (郑民生) born in 1968 April 30, a local resident of Nanping, Fujian Province, was never married and used to be a community doctor, now unemployed since he quit his job in June of 2009. According to the people around him, suspect’s motive could be that he felt people around look down on him; both marriage and work are unsuccessful so he felt that he has no reason to live.

    What an absolute wanker. I honestly wish the parents had gotten to him before the staff did. 凌迟 would be too good for this guy.

    My god, even if I had no reason to live I wouldn’t ever think of harming children (or anyone else for that matter); I don’t know if what I hear about Chinese prisons is true, but I wouldn’t expect him to live long with a crime like this.

    How incredibly sad – my heart goes out to the parents. I hope the teachers and worker that fought him are seen as heroes.

    I think he blamed his problem on the kids. His motive was the kids, the little pricks. But the little bastards didn’t deserve to die. He should have went back to hit them, not kill them. So much for harmony in society. I blame it all on lack of good parenting.

    I guess the police were too busy cracking down on porn downloaders.

    What a horrible story. So sad that children, the innocents of society in every way, are forced to be victims of and witness to hell. What a coward he probably went after children so he could inflict the most harm, knowing adults would fight back, absolutely deplorable. It is cases like these that cause me to fully support capital punishment, certain people do not deserve and can’t be permitted to be a part of society.

    It’s sad that across the world this trend of violent attacks at schools from elementary to university is increasing. What is supposed to be a safe place of learning and growing for all is being turned into a vulnerable nightmare. These people need to seek help before they get to such dire psychological conditions that allow them to act as they do. And, obviously until we figure our how to stop the psychos the schools need to be better protected and supervised so children can continue to learn and play in these environments without being subject to such atrocities.

    Heart goes out to the parents and kids who suffered.

    “Zheng Mingsheng (郑民生)”

    If the Chinese name is correct, the standard pinyin rendition would be “Zheng Minsheng”.

  6. Zhangsan says:

    Throughout all the cultures of the world, is there any crime more heinous, more unforgivable than targeting the weak and defenseless, the elderly and the children?

    Unpardonable. Unforgivable.

    Intellectually, I am opposed to the death penalty on principle.

    But this man deserves to burn.

  7. John says:

    God, what a horrible situation. RIP to those poor kids and I send blessings to the parent. Just terrible.

  8. fireworks says:

    Quite a tragic outcome for this man’s grievances. Seems like school incidents is not just happening in America or Nordic countries. Don’t forget, cities in the interior are more backward, people are also backward. You have more spitting, laughing at the unfortunate, staring at people who are different and general backwardness.

    No Job, No Wife, No sex…..it’s the tale of millions of broke frustrated men all over the world. He’s just another reminder of whats to come.

    Sad happening, my condolences to the parents. Right now i just cant think of a punishment that would suit this fucker

  11. Carl says:

    funny use of the word “suspect” in the story, even though he is clearly going to be condemned.

  12. Commoner says:

    My grief and sorrow goes to the victims family and friends

  13. dentrite says:

    The final number of deaths is 8, and 5 was injured.
