Tokyo Knife Attack
« on: June 08, 2008, 03:22:23 PM »
I'm in Japan business/pleasure and dominating the TV news while I eat breakfast
is the the knife attack in Tokyo (Akihabara).  In three minutes, he attacked 17 people and killed
at least 7.  Truly tragic.  It shows the speed and power of the knife.

It also shows what happens when none of the victimes or onlookers are armed.

If someone has some good article(s) on this would they please post it in the "knives for bad" or "Crimes involving knives" or whatever the name of it is thread?  Please discuss on that thread as well.
