School shootings in Finland, and Caracas

Katy says: The peaceful march to the Supreme Tribunal is tainted in blood, as previous marches were. There are reports that an armed group has entered the campus of Central University in Caracas and has opened fir on students coming back from the march. They have apparently taken over the School of Social Work and set fire to a bus. Four kids have gunshot wounds, but the number is sure to mount. Read the breaking news in Spanish here.

There was a school shooting in Finland today as well. I’m sure the UCV shooting will not make the headlines in the same way as the Finland shooting. After all, when students are shot in Finland, it’s news. When it happens in Caracas, it’s just another day in the red, very red revolution.

What can we do but hope this ends without further bloodshed.
