BEIJING: A man stabbed 22 primary school students in a knife attack in China on Friday, officials said, the latest in a series of assaults.

The attacker "has been detained", said a spokesman for the Guangshan county government in the central province of Henan, where the stabbing happened.

"Twenty-two elementary school students were stabbed, so was an adult villager" but none of the victims died, the official, who declined to give his name, told AFP.

The state-run China News Service said a man attacked the students with a knife outside an elementary school, resulting in injuries which were "not life threatening". It did not give the children's exact ages.

China has seen several violent attacks against children over the past two years, including a spate of five incidents in 2010 which killed 15 children and two adults and wounded more than 80.

The assaults have forced authorities to increase security around schools and led to calls for more research into their root causes.

Violent crime has been on the rise in China in recent decades as the nation's economy has boomed and the gap between rich and poor has expanded rapidly.

Studies have also described a rise in the prevalence of mental disorders, some of them linked to stress as the pace of life becomes faster and socialist support systems wither.

But authorities say that murder, which carries the death penalty, remains far less common than in most Western countries.

When our little ones have now become fair game and killing/harming them in dozens is akin to sport, then you know we're completely fucked up as a global society.

The man who stabbed these kids had a history of mental illness. So when will people start taking mental/emotional/personal health serious?

I'm glad that they're all alive, but this world is going insane. Perhaps the end of the world is not a bad thing. We need a reset.

It's not PC to call crazy folk crazy. I think that crazy people should be in the Crazy House.

You do know that 'crazy' people who actually receive medical help generally don't do these type of crazy things? You do understand that all crazy people have an illness and like other illnesses some respond to medical treatment and people get better and some illnesses don't respond to treatment. However, one thing is the same with all major illness when ignored they only get worse not better. :shrug:

And it's insensitivity and ignorance such as this that leads to people who have illness not actually being open with the fact they are struggling.

This horrific event has not been lost on me in the wake of the Connecticut massacre. My thoughts have been with all of these families, too. Celebrating xmas takes such a back seat when you feel like you've been kicked in the stomach when hearing of these tragedies.

Let me state it more "sensitively" for you. Mental patients need to be in a mental facility (crazy house :devil:)

When we as a society decided to close down the crazy houses because they were called snake pits the "sensitive" crowd was delighted. They said now we can treat people with medication and put them in "homes" in regular neighborhoods so that there is no stigma.

But what happened? NIMBY (not in my back yard) happened. Very few, if any of the "sensitive" crowd wanted or wants these facilities in their neighborhoods. So they either wind up on the streets where they get no treatment, or at home with relatives who are incapable of treating them.

And as much as some don't want to admit it, a lot, if not most of these shootings, (Tuscon, Aurora and most likely Newtown) are done by people who are not in control of their faculties. :o

Oh shut the fuck up. You are totally ignorant on the matter. Do you think "crazy houses" help to improve crimes rate? I hate to break it to you but in many cases, the psychopath doesn't even have a mental disorder, more like has a weird sense of moral/etc. Some of the most famous serial killers are actually very smart and come off as "normal". So yes some involved in the shootings have a mental disorder, but I am not sure it is wise to make generalizations. Asylums still exist, but if the medication is working then why would they stay in the asylum? How depressing to put everyone in the same facilities when it is actually a minority who has murder feelings.


Sorry. I just hated how you said relatives were unable to help them, and that crazy hiuses were the only solution. Mental disorders are not all the same, not on the same degree, not all dealt with in the same way.
