(Newser) – More than a dozen people were wounded in a mass stabbing at Lone Star College in Cypress, Texas, today. Police have one suspect in custody and don't believe any others are at large, the Houston Chronicle reports. Fifteen people were injured in the attack, including four in critical condition who were airlifted to hospitals. Most of the injuries were stabs or slashes to the face and neck area. The suspect reportedly moved from room to room, stabbing apparently random suspects.

One student identified as James tells ABC 13 that he helped police capture the attacker, who he describes as a man wearing all black armed with an exacto-style knife. James says he tackled the suspect, who was believed to be hearing-impaired, after seeing him leaving a building at a run. "I give up, I give up," the man said as he fell. The stabbings took place on a different Lone Star campus than the one where a shooting took place earlier this year.

Here is the PROBLEM: NO matter where you live and the source of all trouble and money grubbing and ANY other mental disorders etc that mankind has: There are 4, I mean ONLY 4 "ESSENTIALS that mankind needs and if he has them he can make it and if he does not he can't get by! Before I tell you the 4 essentials let me say, Money, wealth, health and possessions have NOTHING to do with any of these four! now #1 and MOST important: Salvation Matt 6:33 KJV (seek ye 1st, the kingdom of God, and ALLLLLLthese things shall be added unto you) 2. Assurance (sure of where you will go when you die and assurance that you are loved and needed etc) 3. Comfort with family and a spouse (one man and one woman) and w/children etc and lastly 4. Wisdom. What to do, when to do it and what to say and when and wisdom to KNOW the differance and wisdom to KNOW where you are and where you stand and how far you have to go to attain The Truth! These are the ONLY 4 essentials required in life, miss any of them and or all of them the still have to be gotten and yet MOST people get them the wrong way...that is why there is Murder and crime and all sorts of wretchednes in this world. wars and fightings etc it will never change as long as men resist Gods "RIGHTEOUSNES" and His Name is Jesus Christ!!! 1 Peter 3:18 KJV

Notice the media is still calling this a mass stabbing spree and leaving out the part about this being about a nut case with an exacto (hobby) knife with a 1/2 inch blade. Look at the damage done and then remember it's now OK to take blades much longer on airplanes
