A doctor says some victims of a multiple stabbing at a high school near Pittsburgh have suffered injuries classified as life-threatening, though all are expected to survive.

Dr. Chris Kaufman says two victims were in the operating room and one was awaiting surgery at Forbes Regional Medical Center, a few miles from Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville.

Officials say four students were believed to be the most seriously injured Wednesday morning by a fellow student who stabbed or slashed others, injuring as many as 20.

Westmoreland County emergency management spokesman Dan Stevens says not all of the 20 injured were cut by the knife, though most were. Some suffered scrapes and cuts in the mayhem that ensued.

The suspect, a male student, was taken into custody and being questioned.

Not all knives just yet, just scary looking assault knives...for now.

OK, we'll start with assault knives and knives with more than ten stabbing victims able, before re-sheathing and coming out again.

nothing like out of context quoting and pre-judging coming from can't-ThinkAgain-for myself.

Where is he wrong? I don't always agree with thinkagain, but studies have shown that there is a huge breakdown in our culture as of late. He's not off base here.

Religion does not cure violence. In fact it only spurs it more if you look back in history so don't even go there.

As for Family Values, you are right, we don't have nearly the same family values as 50 years ago, but a lot of that comes from the separation that this country and the people in it have caused. We are too concerned with trying to make everyone else just like ourselves and if we are not the same you don't care - Religion is one of the primary motivating factors behind that as well.

I would laugh my butt off if it came out that this knife wielding student was in fact a very conservative religious person and family. Would throw this comment right out.

Edit: that comment came from a comment on an article about LGBT issues and was structured for that. I am sure yea right was meaning religious based family values. Family Values are more than just what you read in a old book. My family is not religious at all, and I am pretty happy with it and we all get along just fine, we get along better then most of my friends "conservative, religious" family's do in fact.
