Colorado School Shooting Suspects Appear in Court to Face Murder Charges

Two students suspected of shooting nine classmates, one fatally, in their Colorado charter school appeared in court Wednesday to face dozens of criminal charges that include murder, attempted murder, theft and arson.

The parents of the teen who was killed in the attack looked on in court before heading to their son’s memorial service. Senior Kendrick Castillo was just days from graduating when he was slain while trying to stop one of the gunmen during the May 7 attack at the STEM School Highlands Ranch, which is not far from the scene of the 1999 Columbine massacre.

Investigators say Devon Erickson, 18, and Alec McKinney, 16, used handguns in the assault. Eight students were wounded.

Prosecutors said both would be tried as adults. McKinney’s attorney, Ara Ohanian, said she would seek to move his case back to juvenile court.

Court documents are sealed, but charges are listed in electronic court records. Judge Theresa Slade denied the prosecution’s request to make some of the documents public but said she would address the issue at the next hearing on June 7.

When Will We Confront the ‘Columbiner’ Subculture?

We would be better off as a country with a longer discussion about the ‘Columbiner’ subculture, and how to prevent teenagers and other young people from falling under its sway.

Yesterday’s shooting at the STEM school in Highlands Ranch, Colo. — only a few miles from Columbine high school — involved two shooters, which is rare in school shootings. The school will be closed for the rest of the week and other schools in the area are adding additional security.

This comes just a few weeks after parents in the area awoke to warnings that an armed 18-year-old woman with an infatuation with the massacre had flown across the country to Colorado; she later was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. And this year marked the 20th anniversary of the Columbine shooting; the date fell on a Saturday with the community marking its third annual “Day of Service” and other events to remember that awful day.

Columbine wasn’t just a massacre; it was a form of ideation, and it cracked open some barrier that made the unthinkable thinkable for many disturbed, deeply troubled, and angry individuals. Some family members of the victims are still getting harassed, two decades later:

Coni Sanders’ father Dave Sanders was the only teacher killed at Columbine.

To this day, Sanders still gets bombarded with messages from what she calls “Columbiners,” people obsessed with every last detail of the massacre that took her father.

“There are hundreds of social media accounts claiming to be the killers,” Sanders said. “Worse, some claim to be my dad.”

Maybe you love more background checks for gun purchases, maybe you don’t, but either way, background checks for gun purchases won’t solve the problem of angry, emotionally unstable young people developing an obsession about Columbine. And when a teenager starts getting obsessed about Columbine, the odds of him attempting a school shooting increase dramatically:

“The phenomenon is feeding on itself,” said Peter Langman, a psychologist who is the author of “Why Kids Kill: Inside the Minds of School Shooters” and who runs the website SchoolShooters.info. “It’s gaining momentum, and the more there are, the more there will be.”

Mr. Langman has created a mass-shooter diagram tracking the influence Columbine has had on more than 30 other rampage attacks at schools and elsewhere, from California to Germany. The diagram resembles a corporate flowchart, with lines branching out and intersecting, but all of them flowing out of two names: the Columbine killers.

In the past, we’ve seen past moral panics about cultural factors that are only tangentially related to teen violence — heavy-metal music, Dungeons and Dragons, violent movies, and video games. But the Columbiner subculture is explicitly about school shootings, and almost always portrays mass murder as a form of justice or retribution. If law enforcement monitors jihadist and other extremist groups that have potential for mass-casualty attacks, they should be monitoring this one.

God bless everyone living in the Columbine and its surrounding communities. They just want to live their lives in peace, not be forced into the role of someone else’s symbol.

1 dead and 8 injured, 2 suspects in custody after shooting at STEM School in Highlands Ranch

By now, all the news agencies have broadcast the particulars, so what I’ll add is that from some sources, the shooters smuggled handguns into school inside a guitar case (where have we seen that in movies).
All the current laws already prohibit what these two did. I have no idea what any further law would have been able to do. Maybe make it more illegal?

HIGHLANDS RANCH — Two students attending the STEM School Highlands Ranch brought at least one handgun into the school Tuesday afternoon and turned the weapon on their classmates, killing one 18-year-old male and injuring eight other students.

The male suspects, one adult and one juvenile, were taken into custody by Douglas County sheriff’s deputies within two minutes of a 1:53 p.m. report of shots fired, Sheriff Tony Spurlock said.

Sheriff’s officials late Tuesday identified the adult suspect as Devon Erickson, 18. The names of the victims and the juvenile suspect were not released.

Deltona homeowner holds suspected burglar at gunpoint

DELTONA, Fla. – A Deltona homeowner held a suspected burglar at gunpoint until authorities arrived, according to deputies.

The break-in was reported Saturday in the 600 block of Deltona Boulevard.

According to a Volusia County sheriff’s incident report, the homeowner said he was awakened by the sound of breaking glass and discovered a man, later identified by officials as Michael Jiminez, in his home.

The homeowner said he got his 9mm handgun and told the man to leave and fired a warning shot into the ceiling because the man didn’t immediately comply, according to deputies. The homeowner said he was in fear for his life, the incident report said.

Jiminez dropped to the ground when the gun was fired, and the homeowner called 911, deputies said.

Jiminez said he believed he heard a woman screaming for help inside the home, which used to be a business owned by someone he knew, according to authorities.

Jiminez said he broke a window with a pocketknife and entered the home, according to officials.

Parrot seized by cops for warning druggie owner about raid.

Pieces of eight! Pieces of eight! Cheese it! It’s the Cops!

Polly want a lawyer!

A parrot in Brazil was taken into custody for warning his drug-dealing owner that cops were about to launch a raid — squawking, “Mummy, police!”

The green-feathered watchdog began screeching loudly the moment officers showed up at his home in the eastern city of Teresina, the UK Independent reported.

“He must have been trained for that,” a police officer involved in the operation told the paper. “As soon as police got close, he began shouting.”

The loyal loudmouth, whose name was not reported, was seized by cops and placed in a chicken wire cage at a local police station.

But the bird is refusing to sing like a canary.

“So far it hasn’t made a sound,” a local journalist reported, according to a paper.

The parrot’s owner, known as “India,” had been busted twice for drug trafficking in the past. Her husband, known only as Edvan, 30, was arrested during the raid when cops found crack cocaine in the home.

Obama White House counsel Gregory Craig charged by federal prosecutors over alleged Ukraine lies.

Yeah, what goes around, comes around. All it takes is LE without a political agenda. I’ll bet there will be more ‘interesting’ things happening in the near future.

Dad arrested for breaking traffic laws in rushing daughter to hospital; nurses bond him out

CENTREVILLE, Ill. – A group of nurses reportedly bonded a local father out of jail after he was arrested for several traffic violations while driving his daughter to the hospital.

Darius Hinkle said a group of nurses bonded him out of jail after he was arrested for breaking traffic laws while rushing his 1-year-old to the hospital.

“She said ‘I’m the nurse from Touchette hospital,'” Donecia Pittman said.

He said the nurses work at Touchette Regional Hospital in Centreville.

Hinkle admitted he does not have a valid driver’s license and said he was speeding on the way to the hospital on Thursday, but said he did it because his 1-year-old daughter was choking on a penny.

“The first thing in my mind was to get her to the hospital,” Hinkle said.

Hinkle said by the time he arrived at the hospital, more than a handful of police officers with different agencies were behind him.

Hinkle said he was taken into custody once he arrived at the hospital. The 1-year-old’s mother said she arrived at the jail when a woman she didn’t recognize was there to bond Hinkle out. That’s when she learned a group of nurses chipped in money to bond the father out.

“I can’t thank them enough,” Hinkle said.

Family Dollar clerk pulls gun on men armed with swords

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) – It was back to business for Precious Spencer just days after the Family Dollar on Bessemer Road was robbed by two men armed with swords.

“One had a short one and one had a long one,” described Spencer. Spencer, who had only been on the job for two days, was in the store with two more managers when it happened. She said one of those managers spotted the two men and took action.

“He got to the end of the aisle and said they’re robbing us they’re robbing us. So, he’s holding his gun and he says when they seen me take my gun out then they ran. But they came here with swords and that kind of threw us for a loop because no one really got robbed with swords before,” Spencer reflected. “What were they going to do, chop our heads off and get the stuff?”

Spencer said associates aren’t allowed to carry guns on the job. “He said they rob us too much and that’s why I have my gun and I understand why he feels the way he feels. He’s trying to secure himself and protect the people that are in here. He said Precious, if I wasn’t here ain’t no telling what they would have done to y’all.”
