Just when I said that school violence plots were on the decline they seem to be picking up again this year.
In Tampa, Florida police arrested 17-year-old Jared Cano for allegedly plotting a bomb attack against Freedom High School. Cano is a former student of the school meaning he was expelled.
Police say that when they searched Cano’s home they found bomb-making materials, a journal detailing his plot and a drug growing operations. So much for weed making you mellow but I digress.
As expected Cano’s parents had no clue to the bombs, the plot or the drugs. Do they ever?
The journal supposedly said that he wanted to rack up a bigger body count than Columbine which leads me to believe that he was a mutant.
I haven’t seen anything as far as a motive yet but I’m sure it will be selfish and stupid.
More on this as details become available and as time allows.
UPDATE: It seems that Tampa police already had Cano on their radar as he had been arrested for such charges as burglary, carrying a concealed weapon, altering serial numbers on a firearm and drug possession. He’s not just some kid who went bad. These are some serious hardcore crimes for someone his age.
