Chinese man attacks elementary school students with knife due to end of world

Chinese state media say six officials have been fired after a man hacked and injured 23 elementary school students with a knife in central China’s Henan province.

The official Xinhua News Agency said Tuesday that two school principals, two township police officers, one township safety official and one county education official were sacked after Friday’s hacking incident in Chenpeng village, Guangshan county.

County officials confirmed the firings Tuesday but said they did not know the specific reasons cited for the removal of the six officials.

Authorities have arrested Min Yongjun on suspicion of jeopardizing public security for stabbing the children.

A statement from the Guangshan county government indicated that Min might have been strongly affected by “doomsday rumors.”

Some people believe the Mayan calendar predicts an apocalypse this Friday.

There is absolutely no hope for our species. After all of these years of evolution, there is this diseased thinking. The world might end in a few days, so he should go and kill children? Even if the world is ending this Friday, what’s the point? Enjoy the last hours and let everyone else enjoy theirs. Are there would-be child killers out there just holding back because they think the world will not end?

    I have been wondering a lot about these types of things happening. Maniacs doing stuff purely because they somehow believe the world would end. (I’m not talking about people using the end of the world as an excuse, though they are just as much cause for concern). It’s not the end of the world we should be worried about, it’s the fanatics who think it will. We are an extremely primitive race.
