The details of the plot against Center Grove High School in Greenwood, Indiana have finally been made public…
A Center Grove freshman was planning to kill his parents and principal before taking over the high school at gunpoint and demanding a multimillion-dollar ransom, court documents show.
The plot, which also involved three of his classmates, was exposed March 2, but court records filed Monday by the Johnson County prosecutor state that the 15-year-old ringleader told fellow detainees at the Johnson County Juvenile Center the next day that he eventually would carry out the plans.
He said he knew he would “either spend the rest of his life in prison or end up dead” but “at least he would die happy,” according to court records filed the prosecutor, Lance Hamner.
The documents detailed the plot and charged four freshmen — three age 15, one 16 — with conspiracy to commit criminal confinement with a deadly weapon, a felony.
The four plotted to take control of students and staff during a March 3 rally for the boys basketball team and demand at least $4 million.
One motive was retaliation against “jocks or older athletes,” according to the documents.
This kid’s parents must be thrilled over the fact that he was going to kill them.
Listen, kids, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Jocks are not worth ruining your life over. When high school is over most of them will either be working menial jobs or in jail. Be better than them and don’t ruin your life or the lives of others because of them.
