1 in custody after Pennsylvania school stabbings
AP ^ | 4/9/14 | AP

Posted on 04/09/2014 6:23:26 AM PDT by TangledUpInBlue

Several people were stabbed Wednesday morning at a high school near Pittsburgh, and a suspect was taken into custody, an emergency official said.

Dan Stevens, the spokesman for Westmoreland County emergency management, said five or six people were reported stabbed at about 7:20 a.m. at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville, about 15 miles east of Pittsburgh.

It wasn't immediately clear if the suspect and the victims are students, adults or a mix of both. It doesn't appear that any of the victims suffered life-threatening injuries, Stevens said, though several helicopters were seen flying people from the scene to area hospitals.

Our schools: a stabbing here, a shooting there.

At least there's no praying - now that would be offensive.

Still no description of the thug. My guess is they’ll get probation and be back to thugging in no time.

Damn. Watching it on local news. This is our High School in Murrysville, Pa. There were at least 20 stabbed. Three in surgery at local hospital and others being moved to my Wife’s hospital in Pittsburgh.

Well....my son was “stabbed” in school years back with a sharp pencil.

We really need to bring spanking back into the schools.

It may or may not be a good form of discipline for some kids, but at least it is a vent.

Latest I’ve heard from local news is that one of the victims was 60. At least one non-student.

Must have been a semiautomatic assault knife. Thanks TangledUpInBlue.

I’m guessing it will be another “mental illness” incident, necessitating a huge infusion of free government money.

Back when I was in 5th grade, a female 5th grader tried to stab a teacher with a pencil only a few feet away from me.

She was a large, cow-like female, probably a couple of years older than her classmates.

That was the last I ever saw of her.

They had reform schools back then and no “social promotion”.

I learned quite a lot that day.

And....where is Obama & his Obamabots. Headed to Texas for a phoney appearance at the second Fort Hood, Texas massacre scene...which he failed to take corrective action to prevent, after the first “terrorist’ slaughter incident in 2009!!!

Then comes....the real reason he went to Texas today....to raise money for Wendy Davis, the has been, nutcase...would be baby killer and lie teller running for Texas Governor!!! Ms. Davis will lose...big time in November!!! That is where Obama heart lies....if he even has one!!!

Feel so sorry for all you decent loyal military & civilian folks at Foot Hood!!! Obama should be booed off the lecturn that he speaks from. But....I guess that would show disrespect for the office of POTUS......which by the way has already been severely disrespected by Obama and his wife, Michelle!!!

In high school in Texas a fellow pulled a knife in the school yard and threatened us....we beat the snot out of him and took his knife. Another student pointed a .22 rifle at one of our class mates...we took the rifle away from him and beat the snot out of him with his rifle. 20 Students were stabbed and no one tried to stop him after the first two?

The gun grabbers are already spouting off on facebook....”20 hurt versus 20 killed if it had been a gun.”

These libtards never let a crisis go to waste. There the waste of space.

That is what I heard. The ages were 15 to 17 and a 60 year old. Seven went to Forbes, with two directly to surgery, one being staged and the rest assessment. Forbes is a level II trauma center and maxed out. An unknown number were on their way to AGH.

If that ain't the truth about how it was done in my day.

Someone got their ass kicked and pretty much that was the end of it .... kind'a like market economics ... the people know what to do, how to do it and when.

Actually they will use it as an argument for more gun control pointing out that existing gun laws are actually working because the perp was forced to use a knife.

Anyone wanna bet the perp is on some form of meds for depression or some other Rx the schools felt were necessary for the continued well being of the child?

If that photo is correct, then the stabber is obviously white, and it wasn’t a racist crime. Maybe some crazy kid on meds?

The rampage lasted for over 30 minutes. 30 MINUTES. Where were the school officials and police during this time???

Is it just me or is this a collosal display of agency incompetence??
