Columbiner tried to blow up Ohio bar

Columbiner tried to blow up Ohio bar

Elizabeth Lecron

To be generous, this woman being a columbiner is the least of her problems but the label fits nonetheless.

23-year-old Elizabeth Lecron, of Toledo, Ohio, was arrested earlier this month for allegedly trying to blow up a local bar. This wasn’t just some idle talk either. According to authorities, Lecron had bought black powder and 665 screws in order to build a bomb. I bet she wanted to buy 666 but miscounted.

What brings her to us is because according to at least one report, she posted ‘voluminous’ amounts of pictures of the Columbine cowards, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold on Tumblr. It’s always on Tumblr, isn’t it?

It wasn’t just the Columbine losers either. Lecron is said to have sent Nazi propaganda and letters to Dylann Roof, the gunman of the Charleston Church shooting. I guess she missed out on marrying a Menendez brother.

Being a columbiner in high school is bad enough, but if you’re out of school and still trying to be an edgelord by idolizing mass murderers, you have a problem and you should seek mental health immediately. While the definition of normal can be debated, what you’re doing is inherently abnormal by the majority of definitions. If you have a friend that is like this keep a very close eye on them as it may be more than just some kind of gimmick. They could be up to some dangerous activities that could potentially get you killed.

Blood is dumber than water: Man hides guns for his columbiner son

Blood is dumber than water: Man hides guns for his columbiner son

Connor Chargois

19-year-old Connor Chargois of Saugerties, New York, was arrested back in February after his then high school caught some disturbing posts that Chargois made to social media. It turns out that Chargois is a columbiner. Again for the uninitiated, a columbiner is someone who admires school shooters and often wants to copy them. Chargois was no different as he posted the following on Instagram.

“I envy Eric (Harris) and Dylan (Klebold),” one post by Chargois said, according to police. “It must’ve been so f—ing fun. They had the right f—ing idea. I’m so full of rage. … Nothing f—ing matters anymore.”

“I feel as though I’m not the type of person you’d want to call your friend, but I firmly believe that you do want to call me your enemy. Just remember: when the sh-t hits the fan, there won’t be any time for mercy.”

The high school he was attending at the time caught wind of these posts and contacted local law enforcement. Police asked if there were any weapons in the household and Chargois’ father, Bruce Chargois, said there weren’t any. Actually, there was this many…

chargoisweapons

These were all guns that Connor Chargois was building in the house. The elder Chargois took a number of these guns after the police’s initial contact and hid them at his place of business.

Both father and son have pleaded guilty to the various charges against them.

Now hear me out for a moment because I have this radical idea. If your son is posting on social media about how much he admires school shooters just maybe you shouldn’t let him build guns in the basement. Then again, due to the actions of the father, I would imagine that this is probably a family of ‘responsible’ gun owners.

I wonder what dad’s excuse would have been if sonny boy went on to kill a bunch of people.

Bomb threat locks down Columbine among other schools

Bomb threat locks down Columbine among other schools

I feel sorry for the students of Columbine High School and the families that send them there. While the community has a defiant spirit to not let the tragedy that occurred there define them,  some idiot inevitably pulls a stunt that reminds them.

Early yesterday, someone called in a threat to Columbine High claiming that multiple bombs had been planted in the school and that they were waiting outside the school with a gun.  This resulted in not only Columbine being locked down but over 20 other schools in the district as well. A rather large police response resulted which found no bombs in the school or any suspect with a gun.

Sadly, this is the new normal as the Jefferson County Sheriffs have admitted…

“Unfortunately, we receive many threats like this to Columbine and we respond to each threat appropriately, which is what we’re doing now,” Jefferson County sheriff’s spokesman Mike Taplin said.

So far I haven’t seen any report of an arrest being made but if I had to hazard a guess I’d say some edgelord cretin from Tumblr, who probably wasn’t even born when Columbine happened, just became a columbiner and thought they would be a badass by calling in a threat to the school where it all started. This probably done between rounds of Fortnite and posting dank memes, as the kids say.

I can’t wait for the arrest to happen so I can hear this pathetic loser cry to his mommy that it was just a joke. I also hope it was done from out of state which will make it a federal crime. Keep that in mind the next time one of you pizza cutters tries something like this.  Why did I call them pizza cutters?

All edge and no point.

Kentucky kids cosplay as Columbine killers

Kentucky kids cosplay as Columbine killers

Two female students were suspended by Adair County High School for three days for coming into school on Halloween dressed as Columbine killers, Eric Harris, and Dylan Klebold. These columbiners even went as far as to emulate the death poses of their cowardly heroes in the school’s library as shown above.

Whenever something like this pops up I always have to ask where are the parents? Well, the local news articles were happy to oblige this time…

A father of one of the girls said the girls know they made a mistake but the school “blew the whole situation out of proportion.” He also told LEX 18 the girls have received death threats.

While I never support the idea of death threats of any kind, this would not have been my reaction if I had children that did something so amazingly stupid as this. From what I’ve read this was not blown out of proportion at all, as a matter of fact, if the school had any cojones these two girls should have been expelled for creating an unsafe climate within the school. If either of these girls were my daughter I would immediately take her to get the mental healthcare that she so obviously needs and not just blow it off like she egged someone’s house.

Too much parental apathy and the ‘Not My Kid’ syndrome are what lead these anti-social miscreants to become mass murderers.

Crimean school shooter wanted ‘Columbine 2’

Crimean school shooter wanted 'Columbine 2'

Kerch Polytechnic College

Lately, I’ve been going back to the older posts on the site and correcting grammar and spelling mistakes. It’s allowing me to revisit stories I haven’t thought about in over a decade. Back then I was able to devote a lot of detail to these stories since school shootings were still a rarity compared to today. I was even able to dedicate a lot of time to international school shootings such as the ones at Geschwister Scholl School and Albertville-Realschule in Germany, and the ones at Jokela High School and the Kauhajoki School of Hospitality in Finland. Today, school shootings have become so common not only can I not dedicate as much time to them as I used to but I have to skip some as well. That includes domestic as well as international. Within the past year, Russia, and one of its disputed occupied territories have experienced a number of school attacks. I’ve been unable to post about any of them until now and still, I’m only going to briefly post about it.

Back in mid-October, there was a very deadly school shooting at the Kerch Polytechnic College in the city of Kerch on the Crimean Peninsula. As you may know, Crimea is currently occupied by Russian forces while Ukraine contends Crimea is their sovereign land. 18-year-old Vladislav Roslyakov took a gun to the school and killed 20 victims before taking the coward’s way out. Recently, it came to light, at least to my light, that Roslyakov was what’s known online as a columbiner. Columbiners are kids who have an unhealthy obsession with not only the Columbine killers but most other school shooters and some mass killers as well. According to Crime Russia, Roslyakov told a friend that he was planning the shooting and was calling it Columbine No. 2. According to Wikipedia, Roslyakov wore a t-shirt which said ‘Hatred’ in Russian as a nod to Eric Harris. Of course, there were accusations of bullying causing the shooting but again, when you’re obsessed with weapons and school shootings and act like an all-around misanthrope you can’t blame everyone else because you’re ‘different’. Also much like a lot of today’s school shooters, Roslyakov wasn’t even born until after Columbine. The columbiners also cling to the myth that Columbine was caused because of bullying. Roslyakov’s bullying might have been in his own mind since by some reports Roslyakov was popular, much like Eric Harris was actually popular.

My point is that if you really want to identify the next potential school shooter, parents, teachers, and other officials need to be wary of these columbiners. Even before the advent of social media, they’ve been congregating on the internet. Today you might be surprised to find out how many groups there are on social media dedicated to the Columbine cowards and the plethora of copycats that have followed. If you know one of these kids, tell someone. It may turn out to be nothing, or you could prevent another Parkland or Columbine from happening.

Ocala school shooter is a lying sack of crap

Ocala school shooter is a lying sack of crap

From the movie Desperado

I originally posted about the Forest High School shooting in Ocala, Florida here. To recap, 19-year-old Sky Bouche carried a sawed-off shotgun inside a guitar case into his former high school, firing a round into a classroom on the 19th anniversary of Columbine, April 20th. Bloodshed was minor as a student was struck in the ankle with minor injuries. At the time of my first post, I said I wouldn’t be opposed to Bouche being sentenced to a mental health facility since he seemed remorseful, surrendered without incident, and supposedly said the date had nothing to do with the shooting. I now take it all back.

After his arrest, Bouche was said to have told police the shooting was a cry for help because of an allegedly tough home life. However, a week after his arrest, it became known that Bouche is a columbiner, or for the uninitiated a fan of Columbine and other school shootings. According to a local news report, Bouche would watch videos about Columbine on YouTube and would leave disparaging comments announcing his future plans.

“I’m thinking about doing my school the same way. I have enough guns and ammo. I have been planning for months, but not sure when to do it,” Bouche allegedly said in the video’s comments section. “Everybody will know my name.”

No, they won’t. Outside of this website and the Ocala area, your name will be quickly forgotten. Instead of being a copycat who will never be remembered, would-be school shooters should try to do something else to try to gain notoriety that doesn’t involve violence. Try music, writing, making movies, or game design. If you’re good at something like that you’ll end up being way more famous than some coward with a gun.

Parkland school shooter getting fan mail

Parkland school shooter getting fan mail

This is a story from March that I had hoped to finish before the end of April but here we are.

You know, after 18 years of dealing with Columbiners, Holmies, and Chupacabras, you’d think I wouldn’t be surprised when some mass murdering reprobate attracts a cult following, yet here we are.

The inhuman scumbag known as Nikolas Cruz, who killed 17 victims at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, is being sent fan mail and love letters in jail. I thought due to the fact that he killed so many innocent victims, and looks like a rat-faced weasel, that he wouldn’t attract that many murder groupies. I was wrong.

On March 15, a person who identified themselves as an 18-year-old woman from Texas wrote: “When I saw your picture on the television, something attracted me to you.”

“Your eyes are beautiful and the freckles on your face make you so handsome.”

Another woman sent Cruz nine suggestive photos, the newspaper reported.

One woman recently solicited pictures to make a collage to send Cruz.

“I want him to see how many people love and care for him and all the beautiful faces,” she wrote, according to the Sentinel.

I’m sure that’s just the tip of the crazy iceberg. He has also reportedly been sent photos of some of his female fans in various states of undress. Thankfully, the jail has not been allowing Cruz to see his fan mail.

I wonder what they’re calling themselves since every congregation of murder groupies needs to have a name nowadays. I would imagine Cruzers would be too obvious. Then again most of these lovesick loons lack the creative imagination to come up with anything else.

If your son or daughter is one of these Cruz fans, seek help for them immediately. This may not be just a phase as I have witnessed full-grown adults who indulge in this behavior. Once again, I’m reminded of the woman with a family who many years ago posted on a columbiner forum about having Dylan Klebold’s ghost babies. Again, I wish I was making that up. There’s also the copycat syndrome to consider as many of today’s school shooters, and would-be school shooters, were fans of school shooters that came before them.

Is Steam a breeding ground for school shooters?

Is Steam a breeding ground for school shooters?

Don’t forget, when a headline asks a question the answer is usually no, but I’m getting ahead of myself.

For those of you who may not be familiar with Steam, it’s the most popular platform for PC gamers to purchase and download their video games. Like most platforms and social networks, Steam also has a community section where users can start their own communities to discuss a varying number of topics. Unfortunately, a number of these communities are tributes to Columbine and school shooters.

According to a Motherboard article searching Steam’s groups for “school shooter” returns 248 results. A similar article from Slate clams there are at least 173 groups on Steam that glorify school shootings. This isn’t the first time Steam has come under fire for being associated with a school shooting, as Aztec High School shooter, William Atchison, was a Steam user and posted several racist diatribes on the platform.

Does this mean there’s some credence to the alleged link between video games and school shootings? Not in the least. If anything, it lends credence to my theory that kids who identify with school shooters, known as columbiners, who hang out in these communities are more likely to be a school shooter than your typical gamer. Communities like this have been around since Columbine became a thing, and have been on multiple platforms. There have been message boards dedicated to the cowardly Columbine killers, not to mention communities that go as far back as being on LiveJournal. Today, they exist on platforms like Tumblr among others.

What concerns me is a lot of these gamers who are posting on Steam are kids, and it’s obvious their parents have no idea what their kids are up to online. The parents are either unwilling to take the time to check on their kids, are too impatient to learn the technology kids use, or are too trusting of their kids and would rather be their friend than their parent. If one of your kids has a Columbine or school shooting obsession do something about it. It’s not just a phase, it’s a sign of mental illness. Get them help before they hurt themselves or someone else. Getting them help doesn’t make you a failure as a parent, you’re a failure if you don’t.

Thanks to Ryan for the tip.

Girl sentenced in Maryland school shooting plot

Girl sentenced in Maryland school shooting plot

Evidence seized in alleged Catoctin High plot

Back in March 2017, 18-year-old Nicole Cevario was arrested for plotting a school shooting against Catoctin High School in Thurmont, Maryland. This wasn’t just some teenage girl fantasizing about shooting up her school either. As you can see in the above photo, police seized a shotgun and several pipe bombs made by Cervaio. Cervaio had legally purchased the shotgun.

What made this story different from the scores of the other would-be school shooters out there is that Cervaio is female. A female school shooter is largely an anomaly and Cervaio wanted to be the first female school shooter. According to her journal…

“By definition, a school shooter has to be attending the school they target at the time of the attack, and I haven’t found a single woman who has fulfilled that criteria,” the passage reads in part, according to Nicole Ann Cevario’s charging documents. “Guess it’s meant to be me. Yes, I know it’s meant to be me. This is what I’m supposed to do. Maybe not with my life, but with my death.”

“… It just really hit me this afternoon,” Cevario wrote in one passage, according to the charging documents. “I realize [sic] I was going to die surrounded by people I hate in a building I hate.”

She also wrote about the shooters at Columbine and Sandy Hook noting the ‘mistakes’ those shooters had made.

Since Cervaio was 18 at the time of her arrest, there was no question about trying her as an adult.

Earlier today, Cervaio pleaded guilty to possessing explosive material with the intent to create a destructive device and was sentenced to 20 years behind bars.

Is that a long enough sentence for a girl who wanted nothing more than to be the first female mass killer, or is two decades in prison more than enough justice for the crime she committed and the lives she put in danger?

UPDATE 2/4/2018: Cervaio was also sentenced to be held in a secure psychiatric facility until her 21st birthday in order to get her mental healthcare help and to assist in her transition to adult prison.

Alex Hribal sentenced for Franklin Regional High stabbings

Alex Hribal sentenced for Franklin Regional High stabbings

Alex Hribal

Alex Hribal was 16 when he stabbed over 20 people at Franklin Regional High School in 2014. Some of the injuries sustained by the victims were so severe that internal organs were exposed and facial features were removed.

Hribal modeled his attack after Columbine by originally planning the attack for the 15th anniversary of Columbine, April 20th 2014. However, there were no classes scheduled for that day so he moved the date up to April 9th, the birthday of Columbine coward Eric Harris. He even told the defense’s psychiatrist he believed he was being “egged on or controlled by Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris from hell.” Bullying was brought up as a motive, but was quickly dismissed by both police and Hribal’s own attorney at the time. He was subsequently charged as an adult for his actions.

Hribal pleaded guilty to 21 counts of attempted murder back in October. Today, he was sentenced to 23-60 years behind bars. At sentencing, Hribal had this to say…

“I feel horrible about everything but there’s no words to use, nothing I can say to make it all better or fix it.”

That’s not stopping his lawyer from appealing the sentence arguing his client should have been tried in juvenile court.

Of course, even though it had been previously dismissed as a motive, his parents tried to deflect blame on to bullying…

Hribal’s parents also addressed the court, saying the case was about bullying and mental illness. His mother broke down on the stand, sobbing and saying Alex was their responsibility and told the judge, “I’m the one that should be sentenced, not him.”

In my opinion they should both be going to jail if his parents knew about his Columbine obsession and refused to do anything about it. Unfortunately, the law doesn’t work like that.
