Tragic and senseless killing.

Condolences

If there is a hell, I pray this animal burns there in eternity. Why don't these misfits do the world a favour and off themselves BEFORE any innocents are killed? The world would be so much better.

Rest in Peace to all the innocent little kids, with their whole lives ahead of them.

Disgusting. And a policeman as well. Instead of catching drug dealers and murderers in your career, you kill innocents. Find him, deserves punishment worse than death, rot in hell.

What a tragedy. According to The Guardian, the shooter was a former police officer, who also shot his own wife and child.

RIP to the victims and condolences to their families.

Firearm-related deaths in Thailand are much lower than in countries like the United States and Brazil, but higher than in countries like Japan and Singapore that have strict gun control laws

Thailand has strict gun control laws, although the police and bureaucratic institutions there are pretty corrupt and there are almost as many illegal guns as there are legal ones. You can buy them from the internet. Brazil also had strict gun control until Bolsonaro started loosening them in about 2019.

Distressing. Very sad for the Families.

The former Police Officer was fired over failing a drugs test and was due to appear in Court tomorrow...

Instead of firing people, they should be placed on leave whilst undergoing drugs rehabilitation - there's a lot more to be gained in doing that than simply dismissing the person. Who knows, had the Police force done that, we may not be reading about this distressing event.

What a brave individual to gun down innocent kids. So many futures taken away at the behest of someone who feels hard done by. Pathetic creature.

The side of Thailand that produces these types of tragedies needs to be addressed…

Ex-cop with a history of drug abuse. Due to rain, fewer children were in the daycare. Tragic loss.

It's a new world record for child-killing after Texas this year. Very deep condolences

I cant leave to much of a massage on here, as there will be to many expletives to discribe my feeling for this bloke. why do people have to attack schools, young children, pregent ladies? is it because there is little or no chance of them fighting back? its really, really very much the way of a coward.

Monster! He cheated the law by also killing himself.

I hope they can figure out some of his reasoning. It sucks when terrible things happen and you have no information that can at least make you feel like you've taken preventative steps to avoid it in the future....

"Guns don't kill, people do" is a cliche for supporters like the NRA. But guns are capable of mass killings. No matter how much hostile and committed, a perpetrator can hardly knife down dozens of innocent people around during a brief assault moment. A handgun (with a motive) could make it possible. Certain regulations are needed.
