Amish School Children Killed Execution Style

A one room Amish schoolhouse holding the children of serene Lancaster County, Pennsylvania was taken siege on October 2 by a milk truck driver with an unresolved childhood rage.
Charles Carl Roberts, who was not Amish, barricaded the doors of the school and horrifically opened fire execution style on a dozen young girls after setting the boys free.
The children had their feet bound with wire and plastic ties and most were shot at point blank range.  Five children were killed (including a very young teachers aide) and at least five others were critically wounded.
In a culture of violence, this distressing tragedy stands as a watershed American school violence warning that everywhere in America, the most innocent can immediately be under siege.
