When semantic ads go wrong, more on the mad stabber from Texas

Further to my post this morning about the amok stabber in Texas.

It seems the mad stabber was intent on killing as many as he could:

The Lone Star College student who allegedly stabbed 14 people Tuesday was on a “killing spree” until his knife broke, according to a witness who said he spoke with him in a holding cell.

Dylan Quick, 20, was tackled by students and taken into custodyshortly after the victims were stabbed on the Cy-Fair campus. He had not been charged at last check.

Quick was well-known on campus because he often carried a sock monkey puppet. Michael Chalfan said Quick would ask the puppet questions, then answer them. Chalfan said other students made fun of Quick and said he looked like the comedian Carrot Top.

Just last week, Quick was featured in a student spotlight blog about how far he had come and “the battles he fought and won.”

From the video it seems he may have had a pretty shit upbringing (ginger AND deaf) but that is still no excuse for a rampage.

However on the news website it looks like they have some semantic advertising algorithms running and it is times like this you really don’t want that.

    Blade broke. Told you so. Should have banned high capacity Knives. Had to have attended a training coarse in the handling of knives, had an extensive background check for criminal and mental issues before being allowed to own one.
