Q: Is it safe ...?

          20 injured as disgruntled ‘staff member’ attacks children with HAMMER at primary school in China      

 

 

Published time: 8 Jan, 2019 07:09 

 

          A man attacked pupils with a hammer at a primary school in Beijing, injuring 20 and leaving at least three children in a serious condition. The suspect, who turned out to be a sacked maintenance worker, has been detained.      

The incident happened at around 11:15am local time in the city’s Xicheng district, police said. While early reports suggested the attacker was armed with a knife, it turned out he used a hammer during the rampage.

All of the victims were hospitalized. Three of the children sustained serious but not life-threatening injuries and remain in a stable condition.

According to local news outlets, a video circulating on Chinese social media shows a head teacher saying that the attacker worked at the same school.

“A worker at our school attacked 20 students in a first-floor stairwell,” the teacher said, as quoted by the South China Morning Post.

The man was later identified as a temporary maintenance worker of the school, surnamed Jia. The 49-year-old man was employed through a labor company, and the school decided to not renew his contract, which was set to expire this month. The dissatisfaction with the school’s decision has apparently prompted the attack, media reports, citing local administration.

The suspect has been detained.

Attacks on primary schools and children’s daycare centers have become more common in China in recent years. In 2017, a man in his 40s injured 12 children with a vegetable knife during a rampage in the southern city of Pingxiang. He was executed last week.

In October, a 39-year-old woman stormed a kindergarten in Chongqing, southwest China, injuring 14 kids with a kitchen knife.

Can you imagine how some of these older people must feel being promised when they were growing up that they were contributing to a glorious communist society that would always take care of them, and then ending up below many of these spoiled little emperors? There's gotta be millions of crazies out there.

What on Earth is wrong with these people? I have never heard of such incidents ever. I get to come to China to hear how creative evil nature can be. Sometimes I wish I didn't hear nor read this much about the many sides effects of our modern society. It aims at a deep faith in humanity and see how it goes away. Now people attack children! I was blessed now knowing. Ignorance it's bliss sometimes, if not many times.

Yo! I told you:
Can't touch this.
Why you standing there, man?
Can't touch this.
Yo! Sound the bell: school's in, sucker.
Can't touch this.

"Give me a song or rhythm
Making no sweat". That's what I'm giving'em
Now. They know
They talk about the Hammer when you're talking 'bout a show
That's hyped and tight.
Singers are sweatin', so pass them a wipe
Or a tape to learn
What it's gonna take in the 90's to burn.
The chart's legit:
Either work hard or you might as well quit.
That's word, because, you know:
Can't touch this.
Can't touch this.
Break it down!

Stop: Hammer time!

Go with the flow. It is said.
If you can't groove to this, then you probably are dead.
So, wave your hands in the air,
Bust a few moves, run your fingers through your hair.
This is it for a winner:
Dance to this and you're gonna get thinner.
Now, move. Slide your rump.
Just for a minute, let's all do the bump:
Bump, bump, bump...
Yeah: can't touch this.
Look, man:
Can't touch this.
You'll probably get hyped, boy,
'Cause you know you can't.
Can't touch this.
Ring the bell: school's back in.
Break it down!

Stop: Hammer time!

Can't touch this.
Can't touch this.
Can't touch this.
Break it down!

Stop: Hammer time!

Every time you see me,
That Hammer's just so hype.

I would think it would take a bit of time to hit 20 kids with a hammmer. What were the teachers doing during this time? Oh yeah, let me guess - nothing.

Over a decade ago I read stories in Dutch newspapers about crazy knife murders in Chinese schools. They'd just lock themselves in with kids in the classroom, and go to town. No escape, no survivors.

In retrospect, they might have been fake news stories disseminated by the U.S. gun lobby. But yeah, hammers and injuries def not ok.

It's true, people were promised the world, if they just study diligently, work hard, provide for their families. They will get monetary returns imminently, promise! They're seen as very direct investments, no leeway for disappointments in school, job or the home arena. And if reality falls short of expectations, of course somebody is to blame. The government is too huge to take on, most ppl wouldn't even try starting trouble with a boss at work, either. Usually it's the unfortunate spouse or children who bear the brunt of the violent reactions.

On a related topic, my parents-in-law helped us make a little cash cooking food for people. After they went back to China, we agreed to give father-in-law the share of the profits he was demanding. It didn't happen soon enough, so he strangled the mother in law and threatened to kill her if we didn't pay up. We transferred the money electronically, but because he's a paranoid moron too imbecilic to understand how to collect the cash, he continued strangling, assaulting and threatening until mother-in-law sent the cash back to us, and we could send the cash to him in a way he could understand.

We have young kids to care for, and that weirdo was living with us like a ghost, no emotional connection whatsoever. These kinds of paranoid schizophrenics are all over China, walking the streets like degrading powder kegs. Usually they explode in loved-ones' faces.

We're staying away from the father-in-law now. We're legally obligated to be that dipstick's pension plan, but after taking so much from us, next time I see him I'll shake his neck!

There's a lot of seething anger and resentment out there.

 

If you don't have the latest iphone and car you have no face so you're jealous and want revenge on those who do, if you do have those things you get to talk down to those who don't.

 

If your daughter is 30 yo and not married the whole community gets to talk shit about your family, if she is married they'll point out that the guy she married could only buy a small apartment whereas the kid next door got married and his parents shelled out more money and bought them a better apartment.

 

It's not a healthy way to run a society IMO, no wonder there are psychos killing kids with hammers.

 

and then there is stuff like this......

You get a job to live the Chinese dream and buy expensive crap so people won't make fun of you, then your boss makes you crawl through the streets as punishment. I can see how some people snap and attack society.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
