Shootings in Bangalore

This news about shooting at IISc concerns me. How could this happen in a place so serene and peaceful, with a tall compound and round the clock armed security guards at the gate? Why would one want to kill these scientists and researchers who strive to serve the people? With condolences to Dr Puri, I pray for all those injured and my teacher Vijay Chandru to recover soon.

I mostly resort to technorati or blogsearch.google.com to hear more details on latest news and views, since most newspapers and TV websites lack details.

Compared to apparent apathy to street shootings in San Francisco, the police authorities in Bangalore have shown a strong sense of responsibility, with a massive manhunt going on to find the terrorists. In contrast, some bay area TV stations, while reporting a shooting, often say that "the victim was at the wrong place at the wrong time" - as if street killings are a norm and the victim was at fault for getting shot!
