Recently, there are astonishing news about killing in kindergarten. In 40 days, 5 incidents in 5 different cities across China, more than 60 children will killed or badly hurt. Look at the killed children, as a father, I am completely frightened, and deeply concerned.
There are many things in common with the Virginia Tech accidents many years ago in US. The desperate killer (also victim of this society in bigger scope out of the case itself) turned to express their hate to this society by killing people – in the recent months, killing of children.
The security measure is tightened everywhere. In Yifan’s kindergarten, the door of the kindergarten is completely locked after 9:00 until parents pick their children in the afternoon. In the middle, no one in, and no one out. This is maybe the general practice across China. We already see observation like this in my comment section.
Work on the Root!
It is not just some crazy criminal in these cases. There are more than that. With the tension in society, more people feel hopeless. When their house is taken away via violation, or they cannot get the salary for the whole year of hard work, or they are simply humiliated by this society, and there is no way out, they go crazy. To restore justice, and legal system and give them helping hands are the most important thing we need to do these days, besides the tighten the security.
I am more concerned with the hate and mistrust spreading out throughout the society. In the banner people handout in Taixing (where 31 children were injured), they wrote: “If you kill corrupted officials, you are hero; if you kill children, you suck!”. This does not necessaries the right way to think about it.
The biggest problem of injustice is, it justify killing!
