    That it is. April can be the most notorious time for shootings to take place.

    Very sad... I really feel bad for the families who lost loved ones in that shooting.

    Goes with my theory of the most violent crimes are committed during the daylight savings time period. That crap changes your body clock = mentally unstable.

    Plus expect more of this until the (depress/recess)ion is over.
    I wouldn't be surprised if this fool lost his job and wanted to take "revenge" on immigrants because he think it's their fault.

    Please don't turn this thread into a political one. I'm just speculating on his reasons and being anti-DST. Nothing more.

    Well, it's a pretty known fact that our jobs either go to cheap Mexican labor or overseas.

    Not that I believe this is the exact cause of this guy going on a shooting rampage and then kill himself, but... you might never know.

    he's not really a kamikaze, he didn't kill himself to kill others. Killing himself came afterwords and sadly other americans have done this exact kind of thing in various places one adult man did it in a high school and sexually assaulted some girls before killing himself.

    he went in there to die, he didn't expect to come back so he took a lot of people with him and made a statement all in one swoop. I wouldn't know what to do in a situation like this

    The article I read on yahoo said he was an imigrant himself.

    I agree. Columbine happened on 4/20.

    Not even going to dignify this with a response.

    this makes me so sad. I'm from elmira, which is the next decent sized town, approximately 45 minutes away. that part of ny is in such bad shape it's ridiculous. it's poor, drug-riddled, and there's virtually nowhere for the economy to go. each time I go home to visit my mom, I can't read the local newspaper because someone's always getting shot along the route I used to ride my bike to college.
