In China, Man stabs, kills 8 children - March 23rd 2010, 03:09 PM

A former doctor armed with a large knife rampaged outside an elementary school in eastern China, stabbing eight young children to death and wounding five others Tuesday, a local official and state news agency said.
The early morning attack happened as students were arriving for school. Zheng Minsheng, 41, had mingled with parents at the school gates then suddenly pulled out his knife and began slashing children, Xinhua News Agency said.
In the aftermath of the attack at the Nanping City Experimental Elementary School in Fujian province, doctors treated small children and bodies lay covered in bloody sheets. Police officers manned a cordon around the school. Some comforted distraught parents.
China has witnessed a series of school attacks in recent years, mostly blamed on people with personal grudges or mental illnesses, leading to calls for improved security.
Zheng was arrested after his rampage was finally stopped by passersby and school security guards, Xinhua said, citing Wu Jiachong, the owner of a nearby shop.

Zheng worked as a doctor in a community clinic before resigning last June, Xinhua said, citing Huang Zhongping, spokesman for the Nanping city public security bureau.
Zheng was known to have a history of mental illness, said a man surnamed Wu in the Nanping city government office, who would not give his full name as is common among Chinese officials.
Eight children were killed, and five were being treated at a hospital, Wu said. Six died at the scene.
The victims' ages were not known, but Chinese elementary schools typically have students ages six to 12.
The school was closed and students were sent home for the day. Counseling would be provided for students when classes resume Wednesday, Xinhua said.
Recent school attacks include a July 2007 assault in which a mentally ill man wielding a wrench wounded 18 children and a teacher in a kindergarten in southern China before fleeing on a motorcycle and trying to stab himself to death.
In June 2007, a man slashed four students, wounding one seriously, in a high school in the southeastern city of Fuzhou, while elsewhere, police shot dead a suspected mentally ill man who threatened to blow up a school in southern China with dynamite.
China's worst such incident occurred in March 2001 that destroyed a schoolhouse and killed at least 42 people, most of them children.

Religion is like a penis.
It's fine to have one.
It's fine to be proud of it.
But please don't whip it out in public and start waving it around.
And PLEASE don't try and shove it down my throat.

This is horrible. The poor children who witnessed this, and their families
