Mass Stabbing at Pennsylvania School

Violence obviously is not the answer. However, it seems that today more and more young adults are involved with viciousness more than ever. Yesterday, in Pennsylvania, a student went on a stabbing spree at his high school, creating mass chaos and havoc. The 16- year old boy injured 22 people in his stabbing rampage in Murrysville, Pennsylvania. The stabber used two kitchen knives to stab people as me moved through the hallways of his own high school. He went to classroom to classroom swinging them at one another. Yet, he was very quiet while he was doing it. According to a student, “he had this, like, look on his face that he was just crazy and he was just running around just stabbing whoever was in his way.”

He was then stopped by an assistant principal who tackled him to the ground and was taken into custody by police. Later identified as Alex Hribal, he was charged with four counts of attempted homicide, 21 counts of aggravated assault and one count of possession of a weapon on school grounds. Murrysville, a quiet town with a population of about 20,000 is known as a safe school community. However, with this horrifying occurrence, parents are not as ease when sending their students off to school for the day nor are the students, who fear their lives when walking from class to class.
