Sorry if this is a dupe


PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa. - A teenager who felt he had been bullied amassed a weapons cache and tried to recruit another boy for a possible school attack, authorities said Thursday.

ADVERTISEMENT


Police found a 9 mm assault rifle, air guns, hand grenades, a bomb-making book, videos of the 1999 Columbine attack in Colorado and violence-filled notebooks at the boy's home Wednesday, prosecutors said. They found no ammunition for the most dangerous weapon, the assault rifle.

Police got a tip from a student at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School before receiving permission from the suspect's parents to search their home, where the 14-year-old was arrested.

The boy had talked about launching a school attack, authorities said. The boy had attended middle school in the same district, but had been home-schooled for the past year-and-a-half.

"I do not think an attack was imminent and I am not certain that an attack was going to occur at all," District Attorney Bruce L. Castor Jr. said. "It could have simply been big talking by a kid who thought that he was bullied previously and he was going to exact his revenge."

Classes were held as usual at the high school in the Philadelphia suburbs. The arrest came the same day a 14-year-old with a history of mental problems shot and wounded four people at a Cleveland high school before killing himself.

Since when has a 9mm carbine been more deadly than a hand grenade????

Just saw this on MSNBC. They had the camera scanning over a table of several airsoft replicas with the caption "police find weapons cache." The only real gun on the table was a Hi-Point 9mm carbine.

I guess saying "He had a gun" wasn't sensational enough, which is why they had to mention air guns, paperweights, and books/videos.

Grenades, huh?

Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure.

It's says that he had no ammo for any of the guns, I guess the high prices are effecting the crazies as well.
Link Posted: 10/11/2007 10:29:17 AM EST
The grenades are gonna be hollow dummies (like the journalist) and the 'assault rifle' is gonna be a Hi-point carbine, which doesn't count as an assault rifle by ANYONE's standards.

All joking aside though, it sounds like the kid has some serious issues.

I knew the grenades were fake. If they were real, the story would have said, "Gernades! Fuckin' gernades!!"

it doesnt count as an assualt rifle ( full auto) let alone an assault weapon (semi auto)

Police found a 9 mm assault rifle


Did they find any bolt action semi-autos, or semi-auto machine guns?
Link Posted: 10/11/2007 11:15:35 AM EST
So is it just me, or are they Fing retarded for showing air guns as part of the cache? Seriously, what's next, the damn supersoaker? "Well, we have reports that he'd planned to fill it with soapy water and squirt the teacher in his French class, we just couldn't take that chance..."

WTF???!?!?! I'd feel reFINGtarded if I was in any way involved in showing damn airsoft plastic ass bb guns as part of a weapons cache. Hell, my son's GI Joe collection is a damn weapons cache, complete with technical vehicles and all!

Sheperd Smith on Fox News had this female reporter who kept saying "9MM ASSAULT RIFLE" every 3rd word. Talk about irritating! She just wouldn't shut up "9MM ASSAULT RIFLE"

One article on Fox stated one operational grenade are a couple others in stages of being assembled.

Maybe he did some research on making them operational again or just made a fancy pipe bomb with the casing. Wouldn't be hard to do.

The rest is normal for the media.

The kid definitely needed to be grabbed up. I don't have a huge problem with the "arsenal" so to speak but live explosives and hate filled ramblings don't sound like a good combo.

I knew immediately that the "9mm assault rifle" was a hi-point without even looking.

So can anyone actually say why this kid was arrested? What exactly did he do wrong?

He tried to recruit a friend to help him shoot up the school.

Scratch that. I think I'm confusing this case with another one. The article doesn't seem to say what he did wrong.
Link Posted: 10/11/2007 12:21:06 PM EST
Same case. He tried to enlist an accomplice to do a school shooting.

There are any number of charges that would apply.

Police also found an operational hand grenade, three other hand grenades in the process of construction, bomb-making equipment and manuals.

The boy's mother bought the assault rifle for him several weeks ago at a gun show, police said. No ammunition was found for the rifle.


Aw shit.

Thats the damn plan of the media, its sensationalism...to get weapons of anykind out of the hands of citizens. Most people will see those and never know they were air guns shooting plastic BBs.

Kid sounded like he may have had issues, but there is obviously not much objectivity at work here.

What is the point of (or legal issue with) showing a table full of TOYS?
