Kids should have died. Lots of people have to die they should be held responsible for the janitors actions.
It's actually not very easy to kill someone with (what was most likely) a very small hammer. There just isn't enough mass in it. Even if you get hit in the head, it won't be enough to knock you out or fracture the skull, and hitting the head would be pretty difficult if all the kids are screaming and running away. Considering the number of victims, he was probably just flailing around like a nutcase and never focused on any particular child before being stopped. In which case it amounts to little more than swinging around his fists.
Have to hit them right. Google "how to kill a pig" and there are many forums and articles information on butchery.
