Meanwhile everybody else thinks its /b/ so it's cool to make jokes about it the next day and be insensitive asses. Can't we just find a nice middle ground and say nothing about it?

The idea of this site is that when you find/make something funny you can upload it here, so they obviously think that stuff to be funny.
However most of the feel stuff and all these 'respect for people' are far to tumblr-y/facebook-y

I seriously promised myself that this incident was so ******* tragic that I wouldn't make light of it in anyway but you made me laugh my ass off. I hate you, here's a thumb.

She has my deepest respect for what she did, and I hope her example will be remembered.

You, OP, using this woman's sacrifice to farm thumbs on a website, you are a parasite.

She hid them all in the cupboards and cabinets and closets then when the shooter came into her room she said they were all in the gym.... he killed her and continued, she saved at least 15 or 20 lives by doing so

that's not what happened, thats what was spreading around on twitter. what actually happened was she moved the children away from the door. and the gunman came in and shot her, then let the kids run out.

"20 school children died yesterday? Who cares? Over 9000 children in Africa die every day!"
So now I'm supposed to blow off a national tragedy one day later because kids are dying on a war-torn continent?

"But it's not a big deal!"
America is relatively stable, has strict laws, has emergency services ready anywhere and at anytime, and has some gun control laws. Africa, on the other hand, has had its hands full with civil unrest, dictators, wars, and all kinds of political manipulation, leading to it being looked at as one of the worst places to live currently. So when one man in America walks into an elementary school with two handguns and an assault rifle and kills 27 people, yes, it is a big deal.

Now I'm not saying African children dying isn't bad, but when people start saying "Who gives a **** about those kids in Connecticut?" and use Africa as an excuse, I get very rustled.

I'm pretty sure I wasn't amused when I read that first 16, then 18, and now 20 kids have been killed by one man. I was more of pissed off and sad that something like this happened.

The way you say "amused" makes it sound like Americans saw this like they were 12 years old. When someone is shot or blown up, younger people tend to go "Cool!" because they don't truly take in the aspect that the victim's life was just taken away, they only see the 'cool' blood spatter and flash from the gun.

It seems to be that you're looking at tragedy very objectively. Come back when you learn what a human life is worth subjectively.

Wrong. A life in Africa is worth as much as a life anywhere else. America, granted, has more regulations that make 20 people dying a big event. In Africa, it's commonplace for 4000 children to die hourly due to how the country is maintained.

I always hate how newscasts, when reporting events of many people of different races and nationalities dying, focus only on American lives. A life being 'American" does not affect its face value.

I'm not saying one person is lesser than another, I'm saying that it's pretty obvious that 20 kids in America are going to be mourned more than the thousands in Africa.
The reason people aren't crying every day from the Holocaust is because it happened 60 years ago, and people have just ran out of tears for it.

If something like CNN were to report on a 3rd world country's status in real time, there'd be no time for local news, which is kind of the point of a national news station.

Not that any death is less than another but I think it's just worse from the American perspective because it's close to home.

Exactly, but in truth an American life is worth just as much as a starving African's life.
Perspective makes people think otherwise.

You're right. I feel the exact same way. Almost the same as "Don't throw that away, don't you know kids in Africa are starving right now". Always gets to me.

American lives > African lives

proof? This over proportional media frenzy over this should be proof enough. Also, if you cant accept that this is the way the world works, then cry about it some more from your comfortable, internet access capable, dick filled faggot of a home.

Couple things that rustled me about it. Of course the kids who died and never really got a chance at life, but also the guy killed his own mother and brother. And to make it even worse we'll never know why because he killed himself after.

i agree, why do we keep dick measuring about which tragedy is more important? Rather we should agree they are both important issues, and move forward on to what we can do to prevent such issues and tragedies.

That isn't to say either, that I think this should go from being a massive tragedy to a political debate where to some people this tragedy is just another example to use in their argument to why guns should be illegal etc.

I just think we should place importance on all issues, and attempt to correct them in stride, as is our duty as citizens. Just my opinion.

Your comment was very well said, by the way.

This is your argument:

Americans feel safer than Africans, so anytime something like this threatens that self-image, we should all flip our ***** even though when you put it into perspective we clearly should not be.

Wise words from Morgan Freeman:

"You want to know why. This may sound cynical, but here's why.

It's because of the way the media reports it. Flip on the news and watch how we treat the Batman theater shooter and the Oregon mall shooter like celebrities. Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris are household names, but do you know the name of a single *victim* of Columbine? Disturbed
people who would otherwise just off themselves in their basements see the news and want to top it by doing something worse, and going out in a memorable way. Why a grade school? Why children? Because he'll be remembered as a horrible monster, instead of a sad nobody.

CNN's article says that if the body count "holds up", this will rank as the second deadliest shooting behind Virginia Tech, as if statistics somehow make one shooting worse than another. Then they post a video interview of third-graders for all the details of what they saw and heard while the shootings were happening. Fox News has plastered the killer's face on all their reports for hours. Any articles or news stories yet that focus on the victims and ignore the killer's identity? None that I've seen yet. Because they don't sell. So congratulations, sensationalist media, you've just lit the fire for someone to top this and knock off a day care center or a maternity ward next.

You can help by forgetting you ever read this man's name, and remembering the name of at least one victim. You can help by donating to mental health research instead of pointing to gun control as the problem. You can help by turning off the news."

Sigh... you don't know if the reason why they're doing it is to "Top the guy on the news." For all you know, the media might have prevented over a thousand shootings. You must know and remember history or you'll be doomed to repeat it. All I'm saying is... I can't name a holocaust after the one involving Jews.

Wow, you need to take a step outside every now and then. Even if he was "thumbwhoring" WHO GIVES A ****??? Do you think getting thumbs somehow correlates to your life outside the internet in any way shape or form? (not that you seem to have one) This is a ******* website devoted to **** that is un funny to like 90% of the human race, who cares how many thumbs someone gets. That said, this post is not funny and thus shouldn't be here in the first place.

I'm sorry if you think that, I know I probably could never convince you that those were never my intentions but I do feel the need to state my, for lack of a better word, case. My life is crappy, yeah I know, there's people who have it much worse than you, that's what everyone says, but I believe that everyone has that one circumstance that is their own personal hell and the emotion they feel can equal those in "worse" situations. That being said, the reason I posted this is simply this, throughout my small crappy insignificant, my teachers were always there for me. There was times I thought about suicide, which I see now is really ******* ridiculous okay but it was a reality for me at the time. But my teachers, these amazing teachers I had, saved my life. If it hadn't been for them I probably wouldn't be here right now, and though it doesn't matter to anyone here really, it matters greatly to me. And there are so many amazing teachers out there that no one sees. This reminded me of that a great deal. So yeah, take it as you wish.

tl;dr Teachers kept me from killing myself, the are unsung heroes in my eyes.
