Whoever did this is or are sick in their heads.
One has to be a major coward to attack innocent people like this.
I hope the weasel(s) responsible for this get caught.

We've had way too many casualties in the past few years. The Newton shooting, Aurora movie theater massacre, etc and now this. Could possibly the works of a mentally ill person. It seems to be that way every time.

1 of the 2 dead has been confirmed to be an 8 year old boy.

Spare for Fox News..who says it is an 8-year-old girl...while at the same time focusing their attention on the incident on the fact that Obama didn't outright declare it a Terrorist Attack

could this possible be the work of N.Korea

Yeah probably not.

Of course it was. The term is impossibly broad. Pretty much anything outside of conformity is classified as some form of an illness.

141 injured with 17 critical. 1 of the 2 dead

130 are currently hospitalized and a 3rd death has been confirmed.

It's really not much more than before. National news has become localized. A decade or two ago, you likely wouldn't have even heard about Newton or Aurora due to communication limitations. Now, whenever anything happens anywhere, everyone can know about it within minutes.

Don't you mean, you wouldn't know it with such speed? Because I'm pretty sure we all have heard about say, the Unabomber.

The difference is that was rightly national news. He was committing federal crimes over multiple states. Someone shooting up a theater or school is a local incident. At the least, they wouldn't have gotten hours of airtime.

I don't actually comprehend how a bomb attack on this scale, or theater shooting  is merely a piece of local news. The North Hollywood shootout, Columbine High Shooting were highly publicised, although the effects were arguably more local in nature than not. News certainly has became more diffused and rapidly updated, but large shootouts and the like have always been common news fodder.

a bomb attack on this scale

This is also rightly national news because many people involved were from other states and some were from other countries. And the FBI took over the case.
