The Worst Spree Killings of Modern Times

legendskiLegendski on 06/05/2010

TheWorstSpreeKillingsofModernTimes Photo Why is it that so many people want to blame everybody else in the world for their own misgivings and inadequacies? This scummy bunch are a prime example. After watching the tragic shootings in the U.K. unfurl the other day, I was somewhat inspired to write a Russian tragedy. But because I don't understand Russian, I've decided to foist this quiz upon my long suffering fellow sploofusers instead. My apologies to the rest of the world, but as I could only include so many heinous shooting sprees, I have concentrated on the U.S., the U.K. and Australia only. The following massacres have all taken place in one general location (unlike Charles Starkweather and Andrew Cunanan who both killed as they travelled around the country). In my opinion, the following cases are a good reason to bring back the iron maiden. But that's only if the authorities can arrest them before they take the coward's way out of course...

This is not something I share with many people, but the high quality of your quiz merits it. I was in a motel in Chicago the night Richard Speck killed the 8 nurses. I was in Texas, but not Austin, on the same 1966 trip, when Charles Whitman let loose. I was on the other side of Taylor Hall when the Kent State shootings occurred. I had just passed through San Ysidro before James Huberty (whose home town is about 20 miles from me) shot up the McDonald's. Charles Manson's mother worked in a restaurant in Cadiz, about 30 miles from here. I was also born the same year as Speck and Whitman. There the similarities, thank god, end, but it's weird karma.

Not pedantic at all, and I must confess, while I can't really say I enjoyed taking your quiz on insane
spree killers, it was well written, and not a time waster at all. Cheers!
