Note: I have yet to see anything being reported about the cold blooded machine gunning here in Finland, if any of my Finnish readers have seen it reported by the Finnish press, please let me know.
I have followed YLE, MTV3, Nelonen, Helsingin Sanomat and the Keskisuomalainen during the same time period of the shooting, and there hasn’t been any word of the shooting. I am not surprised by the blackout. It’s what they do. *L* KGS
