**bleep**, this sickens me. About 20 children, who were all too young to realize their potential, lost their lives for what may have been over a domestic issue that didn't involve them in any way. My condolences to the families of the victims.

Re: Deadly shooting at Newtown, CT

Kind of OT but in the ballpark.  Saw this posted on GAF:

 

BARTLESVILLE - An 18-year-old Bartlesville High School student was arrested early Friday after police uncovered an alleged school-shooting massacre plot.

 

Sammie Eaglebear Chavez attempted to recruit students in the school cafeteria on Wednesday to help him carry out a massive school shooting and bombing plot, police allege in a court affidavit.

Police arrested Chavez at his home about 4:50 a.m. Friday, Bartlesville Police Capt. Jay Hastings said.

Prosecutors charged Chavez later Friday with planning, attempting or conspiring to perform an act of violence. Chavez was arraigned Friday afternoon and is in the Washington County Detention Center, with bail set at $1 million.

"Sammie tried to recruit other students to assist him with carrying out a plan to lure students into the school auditorium where he planned to begin shooting them after chaining the doors shut," Bartlesville Police Lt. Kevin Ickleberry wrote in the affidavit, which was filed in Washington County District Court.

"He also told them that if the students assisting him did not do what they were supposed to do, he would not hesitate to kill them and/or himself."

Police were notified of the plot Thursday afternoon by school administrators who had been told of the alleged plan by another student, the affidavit states. Chavez had told the students he would place bombs by the auditorium doors and that when police arrived, he would detonate them.

As police conducted their investigation, officers learned that Chavez had told a teacher last week that he'd bought a Colt .45-caliber gun and had spent the weekend shooting it, the affidavit says.

Chavez, who had been attempting to obtain a map or diagram of the high school facilities, had been using a school computer to search for information on a Marlin Model 99M - a .22-caliber rifle on a machine gun platform, the affidavit states.

Students had witnessed Chavez researching the Columbine High School massacre and reading online letters that were written in the aftermath of the April 1999 shooting, which killed 12 students and a teacher in Littleton, Colo., as well as the two shooters. A student also had witnessed Chavez looking at a website on how to build pipe bombs, the affidavit states.

Bartlesville Public Schools issued two alerts to parents on Friday, stating that administrators were informed of a rumor in which a current student "was planning to potentially harm students and staff at Bartlesville High School. School administrators took the information extremely seriously and informed the Bartlesville Police Department of the alleged plan."

Chavez was absent from classes on Thursday as school officials and police were investigating the rumor. Superintendent Gary Quinn applauded the work by school administrators in ensuring that students "were never in harm's way."

"I am proud of our administrative personnel who took what started out as an unsubstantiated rumor and, through their diligent work and exhaustive investigation, were able to determine there could be a future threat," Quinn said.

"We appreciate the excellent relationship we have with our local law enforcement and their swift response to the information we provided them. We will always put the safety of the students of the Bartlesville Public School District first and foremost."

Think copy cats are going to become more of a problem (although this was in progress before Newtown happened).  I've seen people elsewhere recommending for the media not to expose the identity of the shooters in the case that a shooting does happen so the 'copy cats' don't get the idea/assurance to have their name out there when it's done.  It's sad though that not all of them turn out this way with the supposed shooter being caught before being able to pull it off (and it shows how bright this guy was 'researching' at school and even trying to recruit).

 

Don't know what the hell is going on with the increase in shootings.

Because our press has more rights than the people. I know if it was my son, the last thing I would want is his name plastered all over the media to boost their ratings.
