HOLY CRAP!

Enthusiast coaster & amusement park chatter about whatever. If it's not about coasters & parks, it'll go to the garbage file. Keep it on-topic and flame-retardant, please.

One of the women shot and killed at the health club in Pittsburgh was a sales manager at Kennywood. :(

Ouch. That man certianly had some issues. His motive reminds me of Marc Lepine, when he walked into L'Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal 20 years ago, and killed 14 women.

Both men claimed that women gave them a hard time. The irony is, though, it is because of men like them that stuff like that happens.

My heart goes out to the families of the victims. I hope they find solace in that their loved ones did nothing wrong, other than to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. :(

I can't imagine what combination of despair and anger could drive someone to do that. So heartbreaking for everyone.

I feel more than just so sad as one person who was trying to bring us a plenty of fun to the family-friendly park, sadly came to an end of her life in like a second. Hope we can get all bad people to stop doing all what makes sad. I say this is a sad news for the world, and Kennywood as well. We don't still think as we can read through people's mind. :cry:
