    One guy goes on a shooting spree.

    Several bystanders catch him and subdue him at risk to their own lives.

    Yeah, humanity is just a big cesspool.

    This. Also, why do you guys (not specifically you, OP) always judge all of humanity on one person? Every thread like this has at least one "HUMANITY IS DOOMED" post, usually at least a few pages worth. Right there in that news story, for one bad egg, you have several heroes.

    Eh, everybody's got a li'l cynic in 'em. Lawd knows I do, but I do think it's a bit unfair to generalize all of humanity on one individual (Again, not addressing you, bro).

    Maybe so, but just as I wouldn't drink a gallon of milk even if it only had one teaspoon of urine...

    I think the rest of humanity in the immediate area ganged up on that one idiot pretty nicely actually. It's great that no one was seriously injured or killed, that could have been a really horrible massacre had those bystanders not stepped in.

    Horrible news about the shooting, but those workers were shining examples of heroes in saving those kids. :)  Glad to see courage in such horrid situations!

    This is the sad part: crazy white man with a gun, everyone jumps in to help; big black man with a cellphone and everyone is too scared to approach, lol

    I see what you did there.

    The guy who hit him with the truck should have backed up and hit him again. ;) 

    There is a redeeming factor in mankind here, though. Those construction workers were good people who fought the good fight and won.

    QFT.

    On a serious note, I am very glad they stepped in to stop that guy and I hope those kids have a quick and easy recovery. People who try to stop things like this redeems my faith in humanity even when that percentage of the human race that are homicidal and sadistic try to destroy it.

    That was a lot funnier than it should be. :lol 

    Yeah, if you're looking for a news story that demotes society as a whole, you should try reading this.

    Well, thank God for the construction workers. Wish they guy that had hit him with the truck would have drove forward and reversed a few times though.

    Someone like that is better dead to begin with.
