Albany high school student accused of planning ‘Columbine-style’ attack:
Back towards the end of May 17-year-old Grant Acord was arrested for allegedly plotting an attack against West Albany High School in Albany, Oregon. Six bombs were seized from his home after police received a tip from another student. The bombs seized were Molotov cocktails, pipe bombs, Drano bombs and napalm which I’m going to assume was of the homemade variety. Some of his classmates said that he would randomly talk about bombs for no apparent reason the most recent incident coming a week prior to his arrest.
Not surprisingly investigators say that he modeled his plot after the Columbine attack. They say that he identified with the Columbine cowards Harris and Klebold and thought that he could make ‘improvements’ on their handiwork. This does officially classify him as a mutant in my opinion. For those of you that are new to the site mutant is the term I use to describe people who sympathize, identify or outright idolize school shooters, specifically the Columbine scumbags.
Of course Accord is said to have the pre-requisite journals. Let’s look at a selection from them shall we?
At about 11:10, he would begin blasting music from the car while walking toward the school, a napalm firebomb in one hand and a duffel bag in the other.
‘Drop duffel. Light and throw napalm, unzip bag and begin firing,’ the notebook said. ‘Cooly state: ”the Russian grim reaper is here.”
The line is apparently a reference to the 2003 film Bad Boys II.
The plan went on: ‘Throw a smoke bomb prior to walking in. Proceed to enter the school, then shoot and throw bombs throughout the school. Kill myself before S.W.A.T. engages me.’
Another dumbass who thinks life is like the movies, bad movies at that.
Police said they found printouts of a website listing the weapons used by the shooters at Columbine High School and a list of items to use in an attack, including a black trenchcoat, a belt with skull and crossbones buckle, wool socks, various explosive devices and a propane tank.
Several items were listed on a page titled I NEED. They include explosive materials, ammunition, a Hi-Point 995 rifle and a Mossberg 500 pump-action shotgun.
What? No TEC-9 so he could be like one of his cowardly heroes? I’m surprised.
While no motive or specific targets have been made public yet we already have the excuse. Bullying you say? Maybe Asperger’s? None of the above. In the wake of his arrest his mom has come out and said that he is mentally ill because of PANDAS.
No, not those kind of pandas. PANDAS is supposedly an onset of OCD that is caused by a strep infection. According to Wiki PANDAS stands for Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal infections and has not yet been officially recognized as a disease only a hypothesis. Last time I checked OCD doesn’t cause people to go on murderous rampages. Think of all that blood they may get on them.
No, what we have here is just another loser probably blaming his own failures on every one else himself with the help of enablers around him.
UPDATE 7/6/2013: This is a very good article about a mom whose son has PANDAS whose exact words were when she heard of Grant Acord’s excuse “I kind of said, are you kidding me?”
UPDATE 12/12/2013: It’s official. They’re going to use PANDAS as an insanity defense…
Acord can distinguish right from wrong, his attorney Jennifer Nash said, but she added that his obsessive-compulsive disorder caused the former West Albany High School junior to be unable to follow the law.
“Our position is my client was suffering from a mental disease or defect that made him unable to conform his behavior to the requirements of law,” she said.
UPDATE 5/14/2014: Acord has entered plea of guilty which could see him held until his 25th birthday. In exchange for the plea prosecutors have dropped attempted murder charges. His mom is still going on about how her precious snowflake has teh PANDAZ.
