Oregon mall shooting

WHY do these things keep happening?? The Gabby Giffords shooter, the VA Tech shooter, the Dark Knight Rises shooter, and on and on.

In the spirit of the season I will just say who knows why these things keep happening....seemingly all in the same part of the world.


It's a shame for all families involved.

Since the Columbine shooting, I've had a terrible fear of my child/children being in that situation, and today it happened. My 20yo daughter was there today at the mall. She heard the shooting and was able to escape with some other customers through an emergency exit.

What is wrong with people that they do things like this?

Wow, sorry your daughter had to experience that, but so glad she escaped!

To me this sounds less random than the Aurora shooting, sounds more like he knew who he was going after? At least the reports are that he is deceased.

Yes, the police have confirmed that he killed himself. He was shooting at random people that he did not know. He came in to the mall wearing a mask and holding an assult rifle. As security was being called, he began shooting.

I turned the news on tonight and heard about this. I was planning on going to that mall today to get some shopping done. I changed my mind on account of the weather. After hearing about it, I texted my nephew to check on him. He lives down in that area and you just never know. He too was going to go get some shopping done but changed his mind because of the weather.

ORMom, I'm glad your daughter is okay. Give her an extra hug tonight.

I don't know why the world has turned so crazy. It seems like around mid 1990s shootings like this became more common. I don't remember ever hearing about shootings like this before then. It's almost as if a switch went off in society.

AHHHHHHH SO SCARY!!! I was supposed to go there tonight too! Luckily I got caught up in something at school or else I probably would have been there.

I just heard on the news about how he may have been a recent laid off or fired employee. I'm not sure, but maybe the shooting itself wasn't so random, just his victims.

Isn't that a bizarre feeling when you were planning on being somewhere when something like this happens?

I grew up in Clackamas and remember when the mall opened. I spent so much time there. I amazed at how many of my friends had plans to go there today and for one reason or another their plans changed. It makes me sick to think of this happening somewhere I frequented.

Really, really, really bizarre. My heart goes out to anyone who was there, and especially to the victims and their families.

It just sucks because there were so many people there because of the holidays. I can't even imagine what would have happened if it was hours later or on the weekend when there would be more people.

I'm glad to hear they're ok. I grew up on the westside but I still went there a lot. I even remember when they had ice skating before they remodeled!

I still go there a lot! I have a lot of friends in Happy Valley and the Disney Store in the area is there. My mom just told me too that she was planning on going after work to the Disney Store but couldn't, obviously.

When I drink I find its easier to watch my children because I see all 3 of them double, so all 6 of them of them take all my attention
