21-year-old threatens school shooting over 14-year-old girlfriend

21-year-old threatens school shooting over 14-year-old girlfriend

William Ingle

This is a new one on me.

21-year-old William Ingle of Piqua, Ohio, was arrested back in may for allegedly threatening a school shooting. According to reports, Ingle was said to have called a local school threatening a school shooting while calling other school shooters ‘amateurs’. Ingle appears to be another edgelord who referred to himself on his Facebook page as ‘The Satanic Monster’

The supposed reason for Ingle calling in the threat was because his 14-year-old girlfriend was being bullied at the school. Yes, I’ll repeat that for you. His 14-year-old girlfriend was supposedly being bullied.

Ingle was arrested for the threat but I was unable to find any information on if he had been charged with having a 14-year-old girlfriend.

Columbine killer’s mother: School shootings are a contagion

Columbine killer's mother: School shootings are a contagion

In the wake of the school shooting at Santa Fe High School, which is a sentence I’m getting tired of writing, Susan Klebold, mother of Columbine coward Dylan Klebold, was interviewed by the New York Times about columbiners due to the similarities between the two shootings. I’ll be addressing the Times article in a future post. However, I would like to address something that she said about the aforementioned similarities and for that, I’ll be using The Hill as my source.

In speaking about the trench coat wearing Dimitrios Pagourtzis, Klebold said…

It was like the shooter was being her son “all over again,” Klebold said.

“I do believe there is a contagion,” she said.

No shit it’s a contagion and your demon spawn was patient zero, Just about every school shooting that has happened since Columbine has been influenced by your son and his psychopathic cohort Eric Harris. From major catastrophes like Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook, Parkland and Santa Fe to more forgotten but still deadly events like Red Lake, NIU, and Dawson College all have your son’s fingerprints all over them.

The sad part is while your son was the contagion you could have been the vaccine that could have prevented all the bloodshed that hs conspired over the past 19 years if you had just not ignored the obvious signs. Instead, you blame Columbine on the mythical bullying, the easy access of guns, which your son obtained illegally, and even more insulting is that you blame your son’s mental illness, which you did nothing to help. You blame everything except your son who helped light the fuse on almost two decades of senseless killings in his and Harris’ name. You’ve even said that you had nothing to apologize for.

Maybe one of these days you’ll stop acting like you and your bad seed were victims and take responsibility for what the two of you have wrought.

NRA President Oliver North is an assclown (blames school shootings on Ritalin)

NRA President Oliver North is an assclown (blames school shootings on Ritalin)

Oliver North

The parade of assclowns continues.

Back when I opposed any form of gun control/gun reform I still wasn’t that much of a fan of the NRA. Not long after Sandy Hook I thought then NRA President Wayne LaPierre was a clueless putz for thinking more police in schools would prevent school shootings. In case you were wondering, armed school resource officers have either been killed or have been the potential targets in various school shootings, Red Lake and Socastee come to mind. So it should come as no surprise that LaPierre’s replacement is just as much of an ignoramus.

In the wake of the Santa Fe High School shooting in Texas, back in May, North was still only the incoming NRA President. Before he even assumed the office North said something that was so incredibly stupid that I had to take keyboard to text area. CNN reported that North said the prescription drug Ritalin, used to treat patients with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), is one of the causes of school shootings.

“They’ve been drugged in many cases. Nearly all of these perpetrators are male, and they’re young teenagers in most cases, and they’ve come through a culture where violence is commonplace,” he said. “Many of these young boys have been on Ritalin since they were in kindergarten. Now, I am certainly not a doctor, I’m a Marine, but I can see those kinds of things happening.”

Yeah, no shit you’re not a doctor. You’re not exactly the ideal picture of a Marine either. The only reason you’re not considered an actual criminal is that your convictions from the Iran-Contra affair were overturned due to a technicality.

Not only is this a grossly misinformed thing for North to say but it’s dangerous as well. It’s another statement made by someone who is in the pocket of the gun lobby that adds further stigma to mental illness. Think about how many people in our country who abide by the ‘from my cold dead hands’ principle that will believe any falsehood told by some gun-toting authority all because they think the gubmint will take their guns if they don’t. This is along the exact same line of people who say that antidepressants cause school shootings. They don’t care how many people suffer from mental health issues as long as gun owners can continue to maintain a small arsenal in their basement compounds or Unibomber-style shacks.

Guns are far from the most important thing in our country. Hell, they’re not even the most important right in The Constitution. Yet zealots like North and his cronies act like guns are the answer to everything. While guns may not be the cause of school shootings, you can’t have school shootings without the shooting part and too many of these guns are legally finding their way into the hands of a multitude of mass murderers.

And just for shits and giggles here is Oliver North’s mugshot.

TX Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is an assclown (blames shootings on gaming)

TX  Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is an assclown (blames shootings on gaming)

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick

In the past, I’ve discussed how much of an assclown I think Texas Governor Greg Abbott is, especially when it came to him kowtowing to the conspiracy theorist nuts over military exercise Jade Helm 15. Apparently, assclownery runs in his administration as his Lieutenant Governor, Dan Patrick, must have recently graduated from assclown college.

Shortly after the school shooting at Santa Fe High School, that left ten dead and 13 injured, Lt. Governor Patrick went to the media to blame school shootings on everything but what really causes them. I’m going to go over each of his points and show how wrong he is.

Violent video games

Really? We’re going to have this argument again. While Lt. Gov. Patrick claims that according to psychologists and psychiatrists, they will tell you it leads them to become numb to violence, to have less empathy to their victims and be more aggressive. Bullshit. No credible psychological study has ever linked violent video games to school shootings. Mr. Patrick has fallen victim to the belief that correlation equals causation. I will say that there are a plethora of maladjusted people who are attracted to violent video games, but they’re mostly disturbed, to begin with. However, you can say that about any pastime. Would he say watching sports causes domestic violence? Not in Texas he wouldn’t.

Removing religion from schools

Again I say, really? While I am a somewhat religious person and believe a lot of these kids could use some Ten Commandments in their life, what religion is Mr. Patrick referring to? I’m guessing it’s not Judaism and it sure as hell isn’t Islam. If I had to hazard a guess, I would imagine Mr. Patrick is referring to white Baptists. Just a hunch. I wonder if Patrick even knows Dimitrios Pagourtzis was active in the Orthodox Church. Religion and morality should be taught at home and church, not at public schools. There are plenty of avenues for people to take if they want their kids to have a religious education. It can even be argued that religion may contribute to the behavior of school shooters since a number of them are edgelords who claim to be atheists just so they can rebel against an ambiguous ‘church’.

Abortions and ‘broken’ families

While I don’t talk about it that much anymore, I’m not a fan of abortions because I was adopted. However, I don’t see why Patrick is bringing it up here. He says there have been 50 million abortions but doesn’t give a time frame for them. So, wouldn’t more abortions cause fewer school shootings since fewer school shooters would be born? My thought here is that he’s just playing to his pro-life voter base for no discernible reason other than to kiss their collective asses. However, he brings up a talking point I’ve been hearing since Parkland, that broken homes cause school shooters. I find that interesting since both Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold came from two-parent families as did Virginia Tech shooter Cho Seung Hui. Adam Lanza was raised by both parents until they divorced when he was 17. Nikolas Cruz had both parents until they passed away, and more specifically to Santa Fe High, Dimitrios Pagourtzis came from a two-parent household. It’s not the number of parents you have, but the quality of parenting you receive. I also find this kind of ironic since Patrick himself has been divorced. Glass houses and all that.

Irresponsible gun owners

Now this one I kind of agree with, however, Patrick doesn’t go far enough with his assertions. He says that gun owners have a responsibility to be sure their guns are safe at home, but he doesn’t say what should happen to gun owners who aren’t responsible. In a number of school shootings, including the one at Santa Fe High, the shooter obtained their firearms from their parents who didn’t realize their guns were missing until it was too late. Rarely do these negligent gun owners face criminal charges and if they do it’s usually because they’re former felons who are forbidden from owning firearms. What is Lt. Gov. Patrick planning to do with these irresponsible gun owners other than give lip service since even irresponsible gun owners vote in Texas?

Too many entrances to schools

LOL…WUT? Patrick says schools should have the necessary fire exits but then we should funnel students into schools. Yeah, because no one in the history of forever has ever snuck into someplace by using the fire exit. That’s not even taking into account that if someone is determined enough to enter a school armed, fewer entry points are not going to deter them.

Unarmed teachers

Yes, because the answer to school shootings is obviously more guns. Arming teachers is one of the stupidest ideas I’ve ever heard. Let’s have guns that are in the schools on a daily basis that could easily find themselves in the hands of a would-be school shooter. That’s a tremendous idea. Let’s also not forget that teachers are not infallible. While many of them are happy to do their thankless job, there are enough bad apples to make the idea of arming them ridiculous. The only way I would even remotely consider arming a teacher is if they had former military or police experience, otherwise you’re asking for more casualties being caught in the crossfire between an active shooter and an untrained civilian.

The elephants in the room

Lt. Gov. Patrick left out two glaring omissions in his public morality crusade to stop school shootings and they are lax parenting and easy access to guns, especially in a gun-happy state like Texas. That’s because speaking out against those things in the Lone Star State won’t get him re-elected. Remember kids, politicians aren’t acting on your behalf, they’re only acting on theirs.

The bullying myth descends on Santa Fe High

The bullying myth descends on Santa Fe High

In the wake of the school shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas, where 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtzis shot and killed 10 people, the specter of bullying was brought up once again. News station WNCN in the Raleigh, North Carolina, area interviewed a criminologist from a local liberal arts school where she was asked if the Santa Fe High Shooting was reminiscent of Columbine. Considering the shooter constantly wore a trench coat/duster in the Texas heat, had a shirt that said ‘born to kill’ and had explosives at the school that didn’t detonate, the answer to that question should be “Ya think?”.

However, putting that scintillating piece of journalism aside, what I really want to talk about is the bullying issue as it applies to school shootings. The article throws this little tidbit in toward the end.

Dr. Amanda Parker says school shooters are often victims of bullying. According to reports 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtzis was also bullied.

Now I’m not a criminologist. I never even finished college. So far be it from me to tell Dr. Parker how to do her job. However, I would like to know where she found her data on this matter because as far as I’m concerned that’s simply not true. In my opinion, the vast majority of school shooters were not bullied. It’s just that their antisocial behaviors were misinterpreted as them being victims of bullying. As I have mentioned many times before, this ‘bullying myth’ as I call it, started with Columbine when early reports claimed that the cowards of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were bullied. To this day, almost two decades later, there is still no concrete proof that they were bullied. However, there is documented evidence that they were bullies themselves.

Getting back to the Santa Fe shooting, what exactly was the shooter being bullied about before he committed mass murder? According to NBC News, another student said that Pagourtzis was bullied by his football coaches because he smelled bad. Wearing a long black coat all year long in Texas will do that sometimes, but I digress. When a coach or teacher tells you to get your hygiene in order, that’s not bullying, that’s them trying to prevent bullying.

Pagourtzis’ father even tries to get in on the act claiming that his son must have killed 10 people because he was bullied.

In a phone interview over the weekend with Greece’s Antenna TV, Antonios Pagourtzis said he wished he could have stopped the killing Friday at Santa Fe High School. His voice cracked as he described how he told police to let him inside the school so his son, Dimitrios Pagourtzis, could kill him instead. He said he suspects his son was under pressure, perhaps due to bullying.

This is the same father who allegedly left his shotgun and .38 unguarded so his son could use it in one of the nation’s worst school shootings. So you’ll just have to forgive me if I don’t take him completely at his word.

To further my point, 16-year-old Shana Fisher was one of the first people to be killed at Santa Fe High. Shana’s mother claims that Pagourtzis aggressively pursued her daughter as a romantic interest after being repeatedly told she wasn’t interested. It was a week after Shana publicly rejected Pagourtzis that the shooting took place. So who’s really the bully here?

It’s been almost twenty years since Columbine and we still can’t rid this idiotic trope from the American psyche. Bullying does not cause school shootings. Petulant and entitled children with easy access to guns who can’t emotionally process their own shortcomings cause school shootings.

Phoenix man missing after leaving for craigslist sale

Phoenix man missing after leaving for craigslist sale

Gustavo Martinez Gonzalez and his Ford F-150

ABC 15 in Arizona is reporting that 52-year-old Gustavo Martinez Gonzalez went missing after leaving to sell his truck on craigslist. Mr. Gonzalez was last seen on June 10th.

He is described as being 5 feet 6 inches tall, about 180-pounds with black hair and brown eyes.

He was last seen wearing a black T-shirt, black shorts, and black Puma sneakers. He is missing the top portion of his left index finger.

His truck is a 2012 Ford F-150 FX4. Gonzalez removed his license plate because he believed he was selling the vehicle.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call the Phoenix Police Department’s Missing Persons Unit at 602-534-2121.

If you’re selling a vehicle on craigslist, I recommend not only meeting the buyer at a police station and taking someone with you in case there’s trouble. Ultimately, I would never recommend doing any business on craigslist.

I pray to God for Mr. Gonzalez’s safe return. Unfortunately, when a victim disappears from a craigslist deal, rarely do they return if ever I’m sorry to say.
