A Second December 14th School Rampage Was Adverted

While many of us are still reeling at the latest school shooting we learn that police stopped what would have been a second mass school-shooting on Friday, arresting an Oklahoma teenager plotting to kill dozens of his classmates.

 Sammie Eaglebear Chavez attempted to recruit students to help him carry out a massive school shooting and bombing plot at Bartlesville High School on Wednesday.  He planned to lure students into the school auditorium where he would begin shooting them after chaining the doors shut.  He also planned to place bombs by the auditorium doors and that when police arrived, he would detonate them.
According to the affidavit Chavez had been attempting to obtain a map or diagram of the high school facilities and had been using a school computer to search for information on a Marlin Model 99M — a .22-caliber rifle on a machine gun platform.

Chavez reportedly told a teacher he bought a handgun and spent the weekend shooting it. Witnesses also report they saw Chavez looking at a website on how to build a pipe bomb and caught him researching the Columbine High School massacre.
A quick check of his Facebook page gives you a little background on this young man.  He proudly proclaims:

“im an alcoholic,ive been hurt so much that its all i know,i hate women and men,and i dont leave my house because i have no reason to.”

His favorite quotes include the following:
"Why are you doing this to us?....becuase you were home"-The strangers "What goes on inside a mans head?....I guess we'll just have to bust it open and find out!!!"-Anonymous "Hurting myself only reminds me that i can still feel."-Anonymous "I wanna slit your throat and fuck the wound!!"-Slipknot "Blind them, torture them, kill them"-dennis-ak”

Thank goodness this is one deadly rampage that was stopped before anyone was hurt or killed. 
Chavez is being held on $1 million bail on a charge of conspiring to cause serious bodily harm or death to other students and is due in court January 11th.
