Tainted school lunch kills 22 kids

At least 22 schoolchildren died in northeastern India after eating free school lunches that contained a poison, a state official said.

More than 25 others have been hospitalized in Bihar state, said Education Minister P.K. Shahi, after ingesting an insecticide that was in the food.

The poison was organophosphorous, a chemical that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says is commonly used in agriculture.

    So you think you will not lose your voice as a blogger here, or anywhere else on the internet? I feel sorry for the hard working, honest, sincere, "degreed", american journalists all over the world that are soon going to talk and type with filtered speech and "make you see the news", AS VIEWED my the Marxist administration in Washington.
    Yeah enjoy this. Someone will get a phone call within 5 minutes of posting this to delete it.

      @Scottish Mama It was meant to protect victims. Maybe here it went too far. I need more facts.

    So if you bring a gun to a fist fight you start, it means you are standing your ground, as long as you kill the only person who can say that. Stand your ground was not meant for that.

    Come on Scottish Mama. That was not murder. Too many criminals are getting protection. This law "stand your ground" is for the victims. I am sorry Tyron died, so young, but other real criminals will be stopped too.

      The only criminal was the cop assaulter, Zimmerman, he had been arrested and aquitted 3 times, because of DADDY's knowledge of the law. Trayvons pot smoking has nothing on Zimmerman. If Trayvon even had (and he did not) smoked some marijane he would have been mellow, not primed to fight. Even the tapes proved Zimmerman lied about the enitial confrontation. Zimmerman even lied about money he was recieving with a taped conversation with his wife. Once a liar always a liar. He was the wannabe cop, who lost the fist fight to a teenager. He is weak.
