6 dead in South Carolina shooting

Six people, including two children and the suspected shooter, were found dead in Greenwood County, South Carolina, an official said Tuesday night.

All died from gunshot wounds, said Greenwood County Sheriff Tony Davis. Authorities believe it's a "domestic-related incident."

The crime scene was along Callison Highway, according to South Carolina Law Enforcement Division spokesman Tom Berry. Four crime scene investigators and three regional agents from that agency have been sent there to assist local authorities, Berry added.

    There are six people dead—why? This nation is mentaly sick.
    There are most likely many reasons why the U.S. has a mental problem.
    Consider what kind of argument you may have had recently with any person you know (not strangers) what was the argument about: money, love relationship, political, religion, a game, the use of personal property; the list could go on and on. Then ask: what caused the argument: I (or the other person) felt mistreated, stress, lost temper [anger] or some other reason. What this all boils down to is selfishness on someone’s part. Then consider how did the person become selfish. In other words: selfishness is the core reason for being a “mentally sick nation “no matter how it was acquired.

    On average, there is a mass shooting just about every day here in the US. Every. Single. Day.
    But we're concerned with terrorism overseas? Please. The terror is here.

    Good morning folks.
    @banasy
    looking inwards is bad for our policies. Must continue finding 'bad' elsewhere.

    Those in Washington and up on the Hill can't afford to let Americans focus on the 'bad' there, in our politics, in the social fabric.

    Helloooooo @ saywhat! Ive missed you quite a bit lately! Here and GPS blog also, like 2 ships that pass in the night. And you're so very right @ banasy! And when the government does take a minute to concentrate on our own country its unproductive little hijinx that seem to be the only outcome.

      Right, chrissy? Instead of looking for monsters that don't exist, look at the ones we've fostered. They're here. And they're shooting.

    All that anxiety over gun violence and the need to get rational about gun control has been waylaid over other 'concerns'.

    Yeah chrissy, I definitely had my moments in the corner with tape over my mouth. But to be honest about it, the teacher was cracking up too. But you know they had to keep order in the class. I was pretty much on my way to notoriety even at that young tender age.

      But, for as long as I can remember, I've also been very good at peacemaking. ( In many cases using my sense of humor as a tool. )

    If you are good at peace making then you would be considered a pariah @bobcat in this new world of ours.
