「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

康乃狄格州小學開槍事件

康乃狄格州小學開槍事件


【Global and Mail】Most died at the very start of their lives, just 6 or 7 years old. Others found their life’s work in sheltering them, teaching them, caring for them, treating them as their own. After the gunfire ended Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary School in the U.S. state of Connecticut, the trail of loss was more than many could bear: 20 children and six adults at the school.

Children:

Charlotte Bacon, 6

Daniel Barden, 7

Olivia Engel, 6

Josephine Gay, 7

Ana Marquez-Greene, 6

Dylan Hockley, 6

Madeleine Hsu, 6

Catherine Hubbard, 6

Chase Kowalski, 7

Jesse Lewis, 6

James Mattioli, 6

Grace McDonnell, 7

Emilie Parker, 6

Jack Pinto, 6

Noah Pozner, 6

Caroline Previdi, 6

Jessica Rekos, 6

Avielle Richman, 6

Benjamin Wheeler, 6

Allison Wyatt, 6

ADULTS

Rachel Davino, 29

Dawn Hochsprung, 47

Anne Marie Murphy, 52

Lauren Rousseau, 30

Mary Sherlach, 56

Victoria Soto, 27

The list does not include Nancy Lanza, 52, the suspect’s mother, or the suspect, Adam Lanza, 20.



美國時間週五(December 14),二十歲槍手殺死媽媽後,攜槍再到母親任職的小學展開屠殺,康乃狄格州 Sandy Hook Elementary School Newtown 26名師生,加上槍手和他的母親,共二十八人死亡,6歲的 Madeleine Hsu,看似是華裔的死者!




【CNN】Dressed in black fatigues and a military vest, a heavily armed man walked into a Connecticut elementary school Friday and opened fire, shattering the quiet of this southern New England town and leaving the nation reeling at the number of young lives lost.

Within minutes, 26 people were dead at Sandy Hook Elementary School -- 20 of them children. Among the six adults killed were Dawn Hochsprung, the school's beloved principal, and school psychologist Mary Sherlach.

The shooter, identified by three law enforcement officials as 20-year-old Adam Lanza, also was killed, apparently by his own hand. Separately, his mother's body was found at a Newtown residence.

"Stuff like this does not happen in Newtown," a tight-knit community of about 27,000 just outside Danbury, said Renee Burn, a local teacher at another school in town. In the past 10 years, only one homicide had previously been reported.

With the death toll at 26, the Newtown shooting is the second-deadliest school shooting in U.S. history, behind only the 2007 shooting at Virginia Tech that left 32 people dead.



今天我的心與各死傷者的家人同在一起哀悼, my heart goes out to the families and friends of the victims and injured of this absolute tragedy at Connecticut!

後記:
本文登出後,得蒙兩位網友留言,提及美國的槍械管制,今天看報有以下的報導:

【明報專訊】'I wish to God she had had an M-4 in her office, locked up so when she heard gunfire, she pulls it out and she didn't have to lunge heroically with nothing in her hands and takes him out and takes his head off before he can kill those precious kids.'

「但願上天讓她(上周五校園槍擊案校長)在辦公室內放了一把 M-4機槍,聽到槍聲時就可拿出來,在他(槍手)殺掉可愛的小孩前,除去他,取下他的首級,而非手無寸鐵地撲上去。」

共和黨國會議員戈赫米爾特(Louie Gohmert),周日在霍士電視台節目中說出以上一番話。他揚言,過去的槍擊案例讓他相信,要防止同類事件,必須增加可流通的槍械,不應加強槍械管制。



若要在美國加強管制槍械,難度之大可想而知。美國強悍的民族性不言而喻,就以擁有核武,只管別人不管自己,別國不可研發核武,但美國擁有全世界最多的核武器!全世界擁有航母的國家有 9個,即是就艘航母,但美國一國卻擁有 11艘航母,成立 11個航母戰鬥群,其他國家加起來都只得 8個半還要多,因為中國的航母還未成形。


還有自 911後,更賦予總統若有任何懷疑受到攻擊,可以作出毀滅性的 preemptive strike,你不幸被殺可說是 collateral damages!

嗌槍械管制多年了,還是一片空白!

應該要禁槍啦~咁危險! RIP

微豆兄:因為被殺的是白種人居多,若是黑人或亞裔就沒有同樣待遇了!

若論無辜???中國的幼稚園學生被枉殺都不少,但領導人既沒有慰問,更沒有舉國下半旗致哀,連討論都被禁聲,更無辜喇!

兄台可參考:中國校園兇殺案

所以我一向都說中國人不是頻臨罕有動物 endangered species,唉唉唉!

劉朗兄:槍管已經講返講去都未能成事,其實乃美國人愛好勇闘狠,民族性主宰了結果!

When will they ever learn!

Minor 兄:是禁之不絕的,美國人也說禁核,其他國家不能有核武,只讓美國人獨有,就知道個中原因了!
