Five Murdered in Calgary Mass Stabbing


“Five University of Calgary students were stabbed to death Tuesday morning in what the city’s police chief called ‘the worst mass murder in Calgary’s history.'” The suspect who’s been arresting the mass-stabbing, Matthew DeGrood is the son of a Calgary police officer.     “(Chief Rick) Hanson said de Grood ‘obtained a large knife’ at the house and began attacking his victims shortly after he arrived. ‘He targeted the victims one by one, stabbing them several times’ said Hanson. There was no known altercation between de Grood — who was an invited guest — and any of his victims leading up to the attack, Hanson said.” That’s de Grood’s enigmatic last Facebook post, above. He’s been arrested and charges with five counts of first degree murder.

    There is no place in a civilized society for these weapons of war, these assault knives. They have only one purpose, killing innocent people. Knife control is what we need, now more than ever. All knives should be serial numbered and registered and all knife owners should undergo regular psychological evaluation. We need smart knives that can only be used by their legal owners and mandatory micro-stamping so knife crimes can be more easily solved.
