ABC News ^ | 06/22/2012 | Jacquline Ingles, Gregg Burrag

LEALMAN, Fla. - The former principal of a Tampa middle school was arrested Friday after a crime spree in Lealman left two dead and another nine injured.

Officials say Anthony Joseph Giancola, 45, was involved in a fatal stabbing, an assault at a hotel, and hit five others with his car.

The spree is thought to have begun just before 11:00 a.m. at a group home for the hearing impaired in St. Petersburg, where a man and woman were stabbed to death and two others were hospitalized with knife wounds.

Justin Lee Vandenburgh, 32, was pronounced deceased on scene. 59-year-old Mary Anne Allis was taken to Northside Hospital, and was later pronounced deceased at the hospital.

The suspect is believed to have left the scene of the stabbing and made his way to Kenvin's Motel, 6801 Haines Road in Pinellas Park. According to Pinellas Park Police, the hotel owners, a married couple, were assaulted there.

Kanu A Patel, 57, and his wife, Indiranden Patel, 57, were taken to Bayfront Medical, and injuries to the male appear to be life-threatening.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Giancola was seen in a 2005 Ford Five Hundred Limited in the parking lot of HCF Foods Discount Store at 5705-B 58th Avenue North around 11:40 a.m. He abruptly reversed the vehicle, and crashed into a short wooden pole.

He circled the block, and crashed into three women and a man, injuring them, and breaking parts of the porch.

Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said Giancola called his mother to tell her she would be proud because he "used a big knife" and "killed ten drug dealers."

In 2007, after an arrest for buying crack cocaine, Giancola was fired as principal of Van Buren Middle School.

“WTF is wrong with people?!”

I’d be willing to bet that drugs and/or serious mental illness were involved in this.

Honestly.

I keep hearing people claim that society isn’t crumbling because of these stories, it’s the reporting of bizarre incidents which serve to make it only seem that way, citing Pulitzer winner Barbara Tuchman’s principle that says “The fact of being reported multiplies the apparent extent of any deplorable development by five- to tenfold”.

I say baloney. Country is going crazier than an outhouse mouse.

With what has been reported recently from FL, I’d wonder about “bath salts”. He was a known crack junkie and bath salts are synthetic coke.

The job loss in question was in 2007. Not impossible, but seems a bit unlikely.

Since there was no GUN involved, I am surprised this story has legs. Just another under appreciated (ex) “Educator” having a bad day.

WTF is wrong with people?!

In all seriousness, there is a high probability that this perp, being a [former] school principal, is a flaming leftist. IOW, reality was something he long ago abandoned in favor of his fantasy worldview and union perks.

Politically, economically, and culturally, truth is shredding away the mask of the democrack utopia and exposing the unmitigated evil for what it is.

In short, truth is causing these folks to lose it.

It's the natural collective consequence of, and due penalty for, the perverted moral framework constructed by 60's Dead-Headed Useful Idiots who finally got their big chance to "change the system".

Perfect confirmation of the “grease trap” theory

Grease trap theory is that certain states (Florida,
California, Texas) contain high proportion of nuts do to
geography

The nuts migrate there because its warm and become “trapped” do fact that is surrounded by water (Florida/California) or Mexico and can not go any farther

Five years ago is a little slow on setting him off. Go for the obvious.

"WTF is wrong with people?!"

Members of the political/regulator class are turning into zombies. Must be the drugs they can afford from their big salaries and benefits. An unemployed elementary school teacher (same ethnicity as the dude in the article) shot my back window out on May 1st (May Day?), as I drove by her house. Don't know her. Only heard some of her expressions of "progressive" ideological junk long ago during a very short "howdy" and "have a nice day" on the road. Looks like she moved since May. And I'm in the middle of nowhere.

Whatever. Things will quiet down again, when the debt collapse has run its course. Entitlement zombies gone wild, eh?
