    Police: Minnesota teen planned school massacre

    A teenage boy had a plan.
    According to authorities in Waseca, Minnesota, John David LaDue, 17, was going to kill his family, start a diversionary fire, set off bombs at an area school, kill the resource officer there and then shoot students.
    Police were tipped off to the case two days earlier. Someone called about a suspicious person at a storage facility. When officers arrived, they saw what looked like bomb-making materials in a locker: a pressure cooker, pyrotechnic chemicals, steel ball bearings and gunpowder. LaDue went with officers to the police station for an interview. There, police say, he told authorities of his plan to kill his mother, father and sister and start a fire in rural Waseca to distract first responders. Then, they say, he would go to Waseca Junior and Senior High School, where he planned to set off various bombs during lunch, kill the school resource officer, set fires and then open fire on students. A journal recovered from his home detailed his plan and preparations, said police, who believe he meant to carry out the attack in the next week or two.

    Glad this nutball was stopped before he could act on his plan. Not sure what is going on with kids in schools today.

    That is ****ed up man...

    Who's got time for this ****?

    I mean really.

    When I was his age I was waaaaaay too busy with crap to have the time to come up with such a convoluted scheme... Or the inclination mind you... Almost makes you believe in the more literary Idea of evil.

    I want to know if this kid was on psychotropic drugs and what his status was in that regard. Just stopped them? Just started them? What's different today?

    The National Center for Health Statistics says that 5% of American 12- to 19-year-olds use antidepressants, and another 6% of the same age group use medication for ADHD—in total, about four million teenagers.

    I would be curious on that as well. The medication parents use on kids to battle ADHD seems to be creating mass killers later.

    The governor of Minnesota is a Democrat. Might as well get that out of the way, someone's going to bring it up.

    Jesus… his plot was multilayered and if successful, would have resulted in many deaths, casualties, extensive property/environmental damage and lots of resources being deployed that costs a lot of money.

    I'm glad this teenage terrorist was stopped before he could harm another human being.

    Pointless fact from the article:

    In a photo, he can be seen picking an electric guitar with a skull on its shoulder strap; his preferred bands -- more than 190 of them in total -- are predominantly heavy metal.
    Oh, he liked metal. That explains it....

    Of all the millions of kids in the U.S., some of them are going to be misfits. Some people are just screwed up from nature and or nurture. We can try and not aggravate them, have the best mental health system we can, but in the end there will always be outliers that are just a ticking time bomb lurking in the shadows.

    The media likes to create a profile for the student. They like to "know how a young 17 year old would go down this path." The long history of media using metal and or violent films (which would have been another unrelated factoid of this student to you) to point to criminality should be noted though.
