Kids are raised to be beautiful little individual snowflakes. Kids want to sit on their asses and stare at a phone screen rather than be active. Kids can't say or do anything mildly offensive in school without being suspended or expelled immediately.

We are raising pussies who can't deal with a little bit of name calling. Phone Post 3.0

Kids act out when they are young because, well they are kids. Parents are to lazy to, well parent. Parents take kids to doctors. Doctors prescribe pills for childrens brains. Well sometimes messing with kids brains doesnt work out so well and kids snap. Phone Post 3.0

Kids these days are way worse. Google harem pants and tell me you don't get the urge to find someone wearing them and beat the living piss out of them. Phone Post 3.0

Their grandparents are the problem... It's their fault for raising the douchey parents who are raising them... In other words, it is the societal moral decay. Phone Post 3.0

I blame aliens. Phone Post 3.0

Hunter Thompson's .45 - Kids aren't worse, in general. In fact, if you have kids of spend time around them you will see that most kids are just that, kids. Society has changed, and that has changed what our kids end up doing, but that isn't their fault. It's on all of us. The best thing you can do is raise your kids with vigorous intent and hope for the best. There will always be psychos, no matter the age. Phone Post 3.0
Boom. Phone Post 3.0

Hunter gets it. The sky is not falling. Phone Post 3.0

Kids are different because the parents are different. Hell, the goddamn parents are kids too, anymore. I did half the shit I see kids do today, I wouldn't have been able to sit down for a week. It's a fucking shame that some stupid assholes can't differentiate a simple little swat on the ass from a full-on beating.

In the end, these little monsters are being raised to be just that: monsters. We want to blame anyone, blame the dumb, irresponsible fuckers birthing and "raising" these little entitled, awkward retards who aren't being taught personal responsibility themselves.

i remember plotting to kill a bunch of my class mates an myself.

i took a family hunting knife (about 8" blade) and started hiding it in my backpack and taking it too school just waiting for the right moment.

i never went through with any of it.


recently i learned my dad knew what that i had taken but hadn't said anything.

i often wonder if he was being an idiot or wise....and i'm still not certain.

We lost sight of the fact that we have a moral obligation to wake up everyday and attempt to make life better for our community and ourselves.

 

The result of this is a reflection of our children today, without a doubt.

zetti - WASECA, Minn. -- Authorities said Thursday that they prevented an "unimaginable tragedy" by foiling a teenager's elaborate plot to kill his family and bomb the junior and senior high school in the southern Minnesota city of Waseca.

Police arrested the 17-year-old suspect Tuesday and charged him in juvenile court Thursday with four counts of attempted first-degree murder, six counts of possessing explosive or incendiary devices and two counts of criminal damage to property. The charges say he told police he intended to kill "as many students as he could."

Capt. Kris Markeson told reporters that authorities believe the teenager was acting alone and would have carried out the attack in the next few weeks if he hadn't been caught. Markeson said he was disturbed by the amount of guns and other material the youth obtained. He said he could not divulge if specific students were targeted. He said police were tipped by a resident who reported a suspicious person at a self-storage facility.

"This case is a classic example of citizens doing the right thing in calling the police when things seem out of place. By doing the right thing, (an) unimaginable tragedy has been prevented," Markeson said.

School Superintendent Thomas Lee said the 11th-grader was known to school officials but they had no major issues with him. He said teachers tried to reach out to him, but he was shy.

"We have escaped what could have been a horrific experience," Lee said.

The investigation began in late March after three small explosive devices were discovered at an elementary school playground in the city of 9,400 people, about 80 miles south of Minneapolis. The youth allegedly admitted setting off practice bombs there.

According to the charging documents, The Free Press of Mankato reported, the suspect kept a 180-page notebook that detailed his plans. He allegedly told police he planned to shoot his mother, father and sister, then start a fire in a rural field to distract first-responders while he went to the school to set off pressure-cooker bombs in the cafeteria. He also allegedly planned to throw Molotov cocktails, gun down students and kill a school liaison officer while he helped injured students.

He said his ultimate goal was for a SWAT team to kill him.

The teen allegedly referenced the Columbine, Virginia Tech and Sandy Hook school shootings in his notebook, and idolized the Columbine shooters.

Police got a break Tuesday with the tip. An officer found the teen in a storage unit that had numerous materials that could have been used to make bombs.

According to the documents, the boy was initially defensive but told officers he would tell them what he was doing if they could guess correctly. When an officer guessed he was making explosive devices, he allegedly said "Yes" and agreed to speak. He allegedly told police he would have shot the responding officer if he had brought a gun to the storage unit.

He told police he had ammunition, guns and bombs in his bedroom and provided a key to his gun safe to officers. Police recovered seven firearms, ammunition and three functional bombs from the boy's home, along with black clothing and a ski mask, KARE-TV reported.

The 17-year-old made his first court appearance Thursday and was sent to a juvenile detention center in Red Wing, the Star Tribune of Minneapolis reported. His next court date is May 12.

VU and thanks, app wouldn't let me paste the article.

Also I agree with everyone that it's parents fault. If your kid is planing to kill you, you have fucked up majorly as a parent. Phone Post 3.0

Doesn't society always consider their generation's youth the worst. It was always better back in their day or their parents/grand parent's day. Even if Grand Daddy greased his hair, carried a switch blade and listened to the Devil's music, Rock N Roll. Phone Post 3.0
