    SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Police in California say six people are dead—four of them children—after a shooting at a home in an upscale neighborhood of the Bay Area city of Santa Clara.

    Santa Clara police Lt. Phil Cook says officers went to the home Sunday evening and found five people dead and two wounded.

    One of the wounded victims—an infant girl—died later at a hospital.

    Police said three of the victims who were dead at the scene also were children.

    Investigators said one of the two adults dead at the house was a man with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound.

    The police lieutenant said the shooting appeared to be a "family on family, murder-suicide."

    Authorities said the lone survivor—a woman—was hospitalized with life-threatening wounds.

    Zzzz,

    Thanks for posting this. It seems we've had a rash of these shootings in the past few months. Since about early November. :D
     
  5. Yea, pretty weird you moron that the death penalty doesn't deter suicide shooters.....


     
  6. ...then the war on terror doesn't deter suicide bombers, and all the money we spent in Iraq and Afghanistan, all the money we will spend is wasted...

     
  7. Deter? War increases the resolve of suicide bombers. I predict within the next year our continued killing of Pakistani civilians will be the catalyst for a Pakistani-American to launch an attack here in the States.

    The idea of war isn't to change hears and minds but to eliminate hearts and minds.


     
  8. As I recall, you were a supporter of Bush's wars in the beginning and during most of Bush's term...



     
  9. "The idea of war isn't to change hears and minds but to eliminate hearts and minds."

    No, that's the goal of genocide.

    The goal of war is to get the other side to surrender, which was the rationalization for why we dropped the bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima...
