(Newser) – The Texas student accused of stabbing 14 classmates had planned the rampage for a long time and fantasized about stabbing people for years, police say. The suspect—identified as 20-year-old Dylan Quick—has been charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and more charges may follow over the rampage at Lone Star college in suburban Houston, ABC reports. Two victims remain in critical condition, the AP reports.

Students have described how they moved to stop the suspect after he started stabbing people at random with what police describe as a "razor-style" knife, the Houston Chronicle reports. "One kid grabbed him by the backpack, the other grabbed him by the arm, and the kid just said he gave up, and we just sat on him until the cops came," says student Steven Maida. "It was definitely an adrenaline rush. I wouldn't want to hear a girl die, especially if I could have done something about it."

Obama is flying all the victims and families to the whitehouse so he can play them as tools in his new push for KnifeControl.

You know, when there's someone who fantasizes about killing people (either with a knife or a gun) you think you might want to get them some professional help.....? Just a notion. I know how hard it can be to get help for these people but it might be worth a try.
