Who the hell kills children in an elementary school? What kind of grudge must you have? Inconceivable...

For the life of me I have never been able to comprehend mass killing of children.

It makes no sense whether the killer is a deranged individual or a well oiled war machine.

Why would anyone do it?

Crazy.

They're saying the shooter was a father of a student, too.

Its their culture. It is part of them now. The way they think. They call it freedom. You want to end your life, you take someone out with you. I call it lunacy. Sad for those parents because with the sorrow will come anger and who do they take their anger out on? Their lives are ruined forever. What a shame, it makes me mad thinking about.

Bullshit.

Sane people don't do this, and there are plenty of sane Americans. To place the blame for this on all Americans is cowardly in and of itself.

Both sentiments sum it up quite well for me. There is never a reason for these sorts of tragedies, and it is "inconceivable beyond words".
