Isn't there a list somewhere of all the shootings just since Sandy Hook?
I started to keep track but then there were so many. It hasn't been two weeks, and we've got firefighters down, mall shootings, people walking along PA highways. Seems like at least one event every day.
This nation seems like it's in a race to rock-bottom, and I'm sure the economy and holidays aren't helping matters either.
2. i think thats counts at fratricide, no? or sororicide?
What Japan loses in 9 years, we have snuffed out in one week.
Fratricide (from the Latin words frater "brother" and cida "killer," or cidum "a killing," both from caedere "to kill, to cut down") is the act of a person killing his or her brother. Related concepts are sororicide (the killing of one's sister)
i think a term for killing your neighbor, friend, or fellow citizen should be invented.
oh, wait a minute, there is one for the fellow citizen thing
CIVIL MOTHERF'ING WAR
