Big Divide: Two attacks, same day: What is your stance?
While the United States remains grappling over the Sandy Hook shootings that occurred last week, many probably didn’t know that a near similar attack took place some 8,000 miles away in China.
According to CNN, the attack committed by a 36-year-old unidentified knife wielder didn’t exactly kill anybody but left quite a few people in critical condition.
Local news reports also note that it was presumably a knife-attack due to China have extremely strict gun laws.
“The huge difference between this case and the U.S. is not the suspect, nor the situation, but the simple fact he did not have an effective weapon,” said Dr. Ding Xueliang, a Harvard-educated sociologist at the University of Science and Technology in Hong Kong.
