Ga. Student Brings Guns to School:

This must be some kind of record…

FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. (AP) — A Fayette County high school senior was arrested on the first day of school after guns and other weapons were found in his car.

Officials say the weapons were found in 17-year-old Robin Kittrell’s car yesterday at Whitewater High School.

Fayette County District Attorney Scott Ballard says police found at least six weapons, including a carbine rifle, a switchblade and a sword.

Impressive arsenal but this must be the best defense I’ve ever heard…

Ballard says Kittrell told authorities he was trying to defend himself in case a Columbine type of attack took place at the school.

I’m not saying that’s not true but it is the first time I’ve ever heard that. How ironic.

Kittrell faces six weapons charges and a seventh charge of carrying concealed weapons. And Ballard says that because he is under 18, authorities may also charge Kittrell with underage possession of weapons.

    Either one of two things is going on here in my opinion.

    This kid is guiltyof plotting something big, or else he is scared as hell of someone.

    It is not unheard of for picked on kids to take weapons around with them and deliberately cultivate a reputation as a carrier of weapons to fend off would-be bullies. But…….

    What has me bothered are the flex cuffs, not just the fact that he has some, but the number of how many he had…..this says something else entirely, and I don’t think I have to spell it out here.

    There is always the possibility that he is telling the truth, of course, and that we may be witnessing a new phenomenon in post 911 and Columbine paranoia, and that he is policeing his school. A witness said he had weapons at school the previous year as well? If so, he never used them. Getting my popcorn out for this one. It could get interesting. I mean, it isn’t likely, but what if he IS telling the truth?………..

    Maybe he is telling the truth, maybe he is coming up with a new excuse. I have not heard of any other kids bringing weapons to the school except him, he was the threat. I wonder if he would have pulled a pre-emptive(sp?) attack to protect the school too? It will be interesting to watch what happens and maybe he is telling the truth, at least his truth, but I am doubting it myself. JMO. 😎
