Misogynist Finland: Torn Apart by Violence [and Vodka]

Posted by terres on September 23, 2008

Update 2:

The moderators correctly identified nature of the Finnish massacre! The shooter was a woman-hater. Eight women and two men were massacred, a 9th woman is seriously injured. Gunman dead.

Update 1:

The gunman was identified as Matti Juhani Saari, a 22-year-old student at the Kauhajoki School of Hospitality.

Saari entered a classroom and fired at students taking an exam killing 10. He then threw firebombs at his victims burning their bodies beyond recognition. At least two other people were wounded.

Finland’s second school shooting in 10 months leaves 9 dead.

A Finnish student shot dead nine others at a vocational school in western Finland Tuesday before shooting himself.

This was the second school shooting incident in less than a year in a sparsely populated country of 5.3 million people and 4 nuclear reactors, torn apart by greed, violence [and vodka.]

“A cold-blooded shooter entered the building with an automatic pistol and started cutting down students,” said a maintenance worker at the “Kauhajoki School of Hospitality (!)” in the town of Kauhajoki.

“He also shot towards me, did not say anything and once the bullets started to whiz by I started running for my life.”

The shooting followed another school killing in Finland at Jokela high school in November 2007, where Pekka-Eric Auvinen killed six fellow students, the school nurse and the principal.
