Topic: Finnish shooting (sad story)

Have you guys on the other side of the Atlantic heard about this?

Some people are really weird, I still wonder how could this happened. I always thought this kind of thing happens in Chicago and only in Chicago, but still it happened here in such a small country! That sick freak even uploaded a video about himself planning the shooting or something to YouTube! I'm not going to watch the video, though... I've heard enough already.

I don't live close to the place where this shooting took place, but still... It happened in Finland...

Terron you must have heard about this, right? What do you think?

Everyone should check out this movie. Too bad only chapter 1's ready.

Re: Finnish shooting (sad story)

what do you mean "the" shooting? is there a specific event?

Re: Finnish shooting (sad story)

Aha so you haven't heard. Someone went around shooting random people and then shot himself in the head (that was hard saying in English, sorry).

Thank- you.


  You forgot to mention: The shooting got place in a school in a kinda small town.

  Of course I've heard... You know, everybody talks about it. Less surprising, at school also.
I personally was born in the town the shooting took place... but I haven't been there for six years.

  Sad, it is. <---(Yoda-talk)

  Finnish schools were known for their Safeness! And now...
All my classmates didn't even come to school because of this!
  Personally, I'm not afraid. I guess this won't happen again too soon. Or hopefully never again.

  No one can feel safe.

  Unbelievable. Shortly: He had 500 shots with him... Quite an ammo, right? Enough to kill the whole school!

The 'gunman's (above) name was Pekka-Eric Auvinen.
His own words on Youtube:

  “I am a cynical existentialist, antihuman humanist, antisocial socialdarwinist, realistic idealist and godlike atheist. I, as a natural selector, will eliminate all who I see unfit, disgraces of human race and failures of natural selection. You might ask yourselves, why did I do this. Well, most of you are too arrogant and closed-minded to understand. I am ready to die for a cause I know is right, just and true. This is my war, my ideas and my plans. Don’t blame my parents or my friends. I told nobody about my plans and I always kept them inside my mind only. Don’t blame the movies I see, the music I hear, the games I play or the books I read. No, they had nothing to do with this. This is my war: one man war against humanity, governments and weak-minded masses of the world! HUMANITY IS OVERRATED! It’s time to put SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST back on tracks!"

Re: Finnish shooting (sad story)

See, Terron explained it very well. I still feel sad about what happened. By the way, Terron, did you remember to (I hope I get this right) fly your flag at half-staff?

ps.(Ok, ymmärrän, minä olen yhdeksännellä luokalla.)

Everyone does, for sure. But you make it sound like you knew some of the people... ?

  And yes, all the flags were not-as-high-as-usual. The seventh of November will be remembered,
not today only.

   ps. (Yhdeksännellä!? Luulin vanhemmaksi etenkin kirjoitustyylistä päätellen...)

Re: Finnish shooting (sad story)

This is awful, the shooter does sound like a hateful nut job. How ironic this shooting would take in one of the world's safest schools.

A man's worst enemy can't wish on him what he can think up himself. Yiddish saying

Re: Finnish shooting (sad story)

Yeah, Sharra, that's what we think here too.

And Terron, no I don't know any of the victims, it's just that I feel those deaths were unnecessary, and if someone would have noticed that this Pekka-Eric was crazy... I heard he was planning about two weeks before the seventh of November, so maybe his friends or relatives could have done something...

Yes, true. He got his gun two weeks earlier, so the planning had to start before that...
The relatives say he was quite normal - Pekka was speaking with her girlfriend one day before the shooting.
And she noticed nothing unusual in his behavior.

So he was quite an actor or just very cold-headed.
