    Police Foil Teen's Bomb Plot on School

    Police Foil Teen's Bomb Plot on School - Yahoo!

    Derek Shrout was arrested Friday after a teacher at Russell County High School found what appears to be the teen's journal and contacted authorities. Police said the journal contained plans to kill six students and one teacher with homemade grenades. Six of the seven individuals were black.
    In the journal, police say that Shrout thought the white male on his list was gay.


    Investigators say Shrout started writing in his journal just three days after a gunman killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., on Dec. 14.
    "The journal contained several plans that looked like potential terrorist attacks and attacks of violence and danger on the school," Taylor said.
    Shrout told police that the journal was a work of fiction.


    A search of Shrout's home turned up dozens of empty tobacco containers filled with shrapnel. The containers had holes in them ready for fuses to ignite. He hadn't obtained gunpowder, fuses or a substance to ignite the devices.

    Plan To Throw Grenades At Six Blacks & 1 Gay Foiled By Police!

    All it takes is time. Thanks to the media the kid thought he could get the attention. He would have too. This kid wasn't even going to use a gun too. Maybe some will look at this as more evidence for the lack of mental healthcare.

    I am wondering about that. Nuts, bolts, and nails can be construed as “shrapnel”. Having a tin with a hole in the lid certainly is not something unheard, of either. Without the explosives or fuses, or evidence of him trying to obtain those, there may be difficulty convicting. I suppose it depends on exactly what the journal contains.

    I forgot to note he is being charged with attempted assault.

    From another site:

    The makeshift weapons were "a step or two away from being ready to explode," Russell County Sheriff Heath Taylor said, according to WRBL. "The first thing I wanted to know was if you did exactly what he wrote, would it blow up? And everybody that I've consulted with has said that it would absolutely blow up exactly the way he wrote it."

    It appears he explained in his journal how he made those explosive devices and what he intended to do with them.

    I think we should start oppressive grenade legislation now. This way, when kids start to journal about killing several people by stabbing them to death, we can conduct federal raids on Benihana and arrest those conspirators.

    More appropriately the story should read "school teacher foils plot".

    He didn't commit a crime.

    Edgar Allen Poe should have been locked up as well.
