Have you not been paying attention to people?

There were also a couple of young teenage kids recently arrested in SW Florida for planning a Columbine style shooting, and who claimed they idolized the shooters.

We're looking at a country where a third of us won't wear a mask and are willing to assault, even kill, folks who try to get us to do so, goaded into doing so by a political party who would rather see Americans die from COVID-19 than admit that a rival political party may get credit for their efforts in preventing COVID-19 transmission. Our society glamorizes attention to the point where assholes are twerking on police cars when being arrested, and the media breathlessly publishes the dash cam video for likes and eyeshare. We're ignorant, belligerent, and heedless of consequences, and our motivation for it all boils down to...

I was thinking charging two 15 year olds as adults was excessive for what is at this point basically a thought crime, but then I read this:

A Molotov cocktail, components for bombs, writings on how to make bombs, and handwritten lists of guns, ammunition and tactical gear complete with prices were found at the girl's home, investigators said in a criminal complaint.

I still think adult court is improper for a 15 year old, but yikes, the kids were serious. They need serious mental health intervention, and to never set foot in a regular public school again.

The teen told investigators that he thought it was bluster until he saw 20 to 30 Molotov cocktails under the girl's porch.

Holy hell.

Four teenagers have been charged with a plot to attack a Pennsylvania high school in 2024, on the 25th anniversary of the massacre at Colorado's Columbine High School, authorities said.

Well at least they were planning ahead.
 
2021-09-25 12:34:01 PM  
Not that i've ever built a molotov cocktail, but i can see some obvious problems with making it 3 years in advance of you planning to use it.

I live about five miles from Colombine High School in Colorado. They are considering tearing it down and making a new high school someplace near by because of all the weirdos that treat it like a tourist destination.

Oh honey. You still have faith in people? My sweet summer child. I lost that within the last few years. Better late than never at least for me. Time to understand at least half the people you see daily are horrid individuals.
 
2021-09-25 12:35:26 PM  
Is this what happens when kids see their parents trying to kill them with their actions at all of the school board meetings ??

If they spent less on guns and more on mortgage payments, they could move out of that shack.

At least that family looks like they can afford their gun addiction (based on the size of their deck and the quality of the roof).

That's mental illness is what that is.  If those were cats, the animals would be removed by force and the homeowners charged with endangerment and creating a public health hazard in the least.  Guns should be no different.
 
2021-09-25 12:43:17 PM  
We live in a country that glorifies guns, violence, heavily supports and encourages divisiveness and othering, and encourages tribalism in sports, politics, religion, consumerism and just about every other facet of life.

We have the worst healthcare among all "first world" nations and actively encourage sociopathy while openly sitgmatiizng mental health issues.

Gee, I wonder why the kids aren't all right.
 
2021-09-25 12:44:16 PM  
Man, the White community needs to step up and look after their kids. I get their neighborhoods are ravaged by meth and oxycontin, and that they're experiencing historic rates of divorce, and that gun ownership is a cultural touchstone, but won't they even thing of their own children?!

Even in games that have a Brazilian gun options, I end up just with a decent sniper and mid-range machine gun.
Can't imagine storing so much in real life. Worse, can't imagine paying for all of that.

/have heard of one guy, who after amassing a collection of different weapons ended up starting a gun range, so at least there's that
//also, I'd be lying if I said I didn't glance over the guns looking for an MP5

This gives me a sliver of optimism that the kids did not currently have access to guns.

DarkSoulNoHope: Are we blaming the Goths for this one?


I'm sure there's some new sub culture that they can blame it on instead of looking at what in our society causes this shiat on a regular basis.

Acknowledging that there's systemic problems implies that they would try to do something about it, and that's HARD, and expensive. It's way easier to tweet "Enough." and then go into a coma so you don't have to try anything.

By 2024 they would have forgotten about their plan.  One of em got a job.  Didn't want to but, you know, money.  One got serious with a girl.  She says I should apply myself so I can go to junior college with her.  Share an off campus apartment but don't tell her parents.
Nuther one found Jesus.  Last one is scribbling away in his 'log' about social injustice and his world toppling plan of 'synchronized anarchy'

Fark the UN conventions re: child soldiers. Let's just make military service mandatory ages 14-16. Let the little monsters get it out of their system.

They will have had enough, afterwards. I mean ... the ones that survive.

That's what a high school education and no student loan debt looks like.

Because former military members never become mass shooters? History has some bad news about that assumption.

Well, yes. Psychopathy, Sociopathy, etc. are mental illnesses. You're right.

Getting real tired of society treating kids as adults. Pick an age where we agree you are an adult and tie everything to that age. Drinking voting military service etc. ether you are an adult or you aren't. If you can be held accountable as an adult then you should also enjoy the privileges of adulthood as well

My hometown.  The 15 yr old male lives 2 doors down from my in laws 🤦🏻♂
 
2021-09-25 1:07:06 PM  
I saw a Vice News piece about two girls who were going down a similar path and one ended up in flying to Colorado prompting a manhunt. She ended up "just" shooting herself in the woods. It really broke my heart.

I guess one of the shooters wrote really great about depression which caused the attraction. I just wish as someone who was dealing with depression in high school in 1999 I could have talked to them. The actions of the shooters made the lives of people dealing with mental illness sooooooooo much worse. I went from being totally ignored socially to being constantly whispered about as the next mass shooter.
 
2021-09-25 1:08:59 PM  
How does a 15-year old even know about Columbine? It happened 10 years before she was born. You have to be a grade-A nut job to go searching out that kind of thing to become obsessed with.

Thanks, came into this thread wondering if this was another high school kid who wrote an angry essay and got arrested.
