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.
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.

Well, at least this time it was only a week-long break I took, but what a hell of week to take a break. Lots of big news to catch up on. I’ll be honest, it’s my depression and anxiety that’s been keeping me away from working on the website, but this isn’t about me. I just thought you’d like an explanation. Anyway, rules are the same. Dates are from when the story was published and not necessarily the date of the threat.
