One, read, ONE person tried to disarm the guy. DISARM??? Okay, that guy or gal wasn’t a wimp, but wow, what a bad judgement call. Somebody with a painted up face who’s carrying an axe and a knife strolls into a daycare center: how about HIT HIM IN THE FACE WITH A LAMP?
That person gets a pass. The 50-something lady probably couldn’t do much anyway, since this guy was prepared to kill, not monkey around. Where the hell was everybody else? Hiding under their desks?
Okay, let’s give the scared ladies with dick for training of any kind a pass, too. Day-care ladies (with one very specific exception I know) are not generally known for the kind of psychological mindset required to confront a dude with facepaint and a knife. But nobody came running to help? Nobody saw a guy coming out of a daycare with a bloody knife and did anything?
I know y’all don’t have guns. I know you don’t want guns, because that would make you mean people who could stop middle-aged women and babies from being stabbed to death. But, maybe… you could try swords? Shovels? A big piece of wood?
