I don’t have much by way of commentary on this one, it is just a horrific example of knife misuse. It is an act of almost unfathomable evil, and is another example of how the tool used is less important than the mindset of the perpetrator.

From New York Post:

LOS ANGELES — A father repeatedly stabbed his three young sons to death with a knife in the back seat of their car outside a South Los Angeles elementary school Wednesday before it’s believed he turned the blade on himself, police said.

The father, said to be in his 30s, was found in his car bleeding from stab wounds to the chest, his dead sons in the back and a knife in the passenger seat. The boys, ages 8 to 12, were pronounced dead at the gruesome scene.

The father, whose name was not released, is the only suspect in the killings, police said. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition and will be arrested if he survives his wounds, Los Angeles Police Officer Matthew Ludwig said…

…John Sorrentino, whose furniture store is next to the crime scene, said he was the one who first spotted the bloody scene and called 911.

“I saw this man behind the steering wheel covered in blood,” he said. “I got a little bit closer, and I saw a young child in the back seat and his eyes were half open and he was covered in blood.

“He was staring out, just in space. It’s still etched in my mind.”

Sorrentino said he then saw another motionless boy bent over a seat, and in the back, a leg of the third boy lying upright. That’s when he ran inside his store and called 911.”

A sad story of a senseless act of brutality.

    Some people probably will claim that this kind of insane mayhem is, and always has been, part of any society, but stories like this, which seem to be increasing lately, suggest that America is way past the tipping point in regard to its sociopolitical rot and decline.

    What will it take for this country to change its rapid implosion? More violent video games, Black Lives Matter, open borders, LGBT celebrations, cooking meth, frequent trips to Walmart? Lobotomies? Sex changes?
