    Wow! There's a lot going on in Texas right now. My goodness! This is crazy. I'm so sorry for the victims, survivors, and witnesses of all of this.

    Big thanks to the first responders and LE!

    WTH? Why does he still have it? I would think they would remove his weapon(s).

    Texas is having a bad day. A Dallas firefighter was ambushed and shot earlier. Looking now to see if there's a thread.

    I just now heard about this from my son, who is a grad student at UT. He was just about to give a presentation when the class was cancelled. There is much more to this horrific attack and I hope the news media is on top of it. Praying for the families of these students and hoping that the police get to the bottom of it quickly. All my own opinion.

    I enlarged the pic and then asked my son, who carries a knife in a sheath, and we both agree there isn't a knife in the sheath. My son pointed out the clip that wraps around the handle to secure it, is unfastened. Also, when the pic is enlarged, you can see shadowing where the knife would go, indicating a "gap" which is where the knife goes in. I hope this makes sense.

    I'm afraid in today's world, he might actually follow through so I'm glad the teacher made the call. I hope he gets help and heals and can go on with a normal life in his future.

    Police identified the suspect as 21-year-old Kendrex J. White.

    University police Chief David Carter described the weapon as a "Bowie-style" hunting knife. He said the stabbings occurred within a one-block area as the attacker "calmly walked around the plaza."

    White was an active member of the Black Health Professionals Organization student organization on campus, said Melody Adindu, the group's new president. She said White was passionate about his work and was "very interactive and easygoing."

    Carter said White was confronted and arrested within two minutes of the first call to police and the situation was immediately under control. The campus siren wasn't used because there was no need for a lockdown to keep people in place, he said.

    We do have a lot of bad days, yes. But we are also a big azz state. And we like guns and are not big on education funding. (I actually live slightly out-of-state now, but home is a neighbor)

    However, this sounds far different than our more typical "shoot em up" or "affluenza" or "Waco" cray. MOO

    When my daughter moved to Austin I told her "You're going to be living in the Wild West now!" and every weird or scary thing that came up we attributed to the ww.
