Because nobody has any respect for the law, compounded by the fact that even trained professional educators can’t read the signs of impending mayhem, another domestic terror massacre occurred. Unlike Darrell Brooks, Ethan Crumbley is actually charged with terrorism in addition to four counts of first-degree murder and an array of other charges, New York Times reports. The only difference is Crumbley is White and Brooks is Black.
Another terror massacre
According to Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard, “the 15-year-old shooter used his father’s newly purchased 9 mm Sig Sauer in the shooting.” He picked it up for a good deal at a Black Friday sale. Ahead of the massacre, “suspect had practiced shooting the gun and even shared pictures of ‘the target and the weapon’ online.
Just before 1 p.m. on Tuesday, the Oxford High School sophomore ended the lives of three classmates and seriously injured eight more. Nobody in the media is talking about the meeting school administrators had with his parents just before the massacre. As confirmed by Sheriff Mike Bouchard, “the boy’s parents had been summoned to the school before the violence.” The staff wanted to have a little chat about “behavior in the classroom that was concerning.” When it was over the “teen remained in school, and the shooting occurred a few hours later.”
There’s reason to believe that rumors of an impending massacre were floating around even sooner. concerned parent, Robin Redding, said her son, 12th-grader Treshan Bryant, stayed home Tuesday after hearing threats of a possible shooting. “This couldn’t be just random,” she declares. Crumbly had also been called in to talk with school officials on Monday and Tuesday.
Motive allegedly ‘unknown’
While police are saying they don’t know why Ethan Crumbley wanted to murder half the student body, that’s not quite true. They simply don’t want to talk about it because the families of Tate Myre, Madisyn Baldwin, and Hana St. Juliana will use it against the school later in court. Those were the three students murdered in the preventable massacre. They are admitting that they “were made aware that threats of a shooting at the school were allegedly circulating social media.” They obviously didn’t do enough about it.
Crumbley was isolated in a bathroom when deputies came for him. He surrendered “almost immediately,” carrying his loaded weapon as he emerged from the bathroom. One thing is totally certain, the massacre “was not just an impulsive act.” He “deliberately brought the handgun that day with the intent to murder as many students as he could, assistant prosecutor Marc Keast argued.
The Sheriff notes “There is nothing that he could have faced that would warrant senseless, absolutely brutal violence on other kids.” The prosecutor informed the court that they pieced together the events of the massacre. “Crumbley entered a bathroom with a backpack and came out with a semi-automatic handgun, firing at students while moving down the hallway.”
