In the midst of yesterday’s massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, another plot arises. Due to the media attention given to the slaughter, this incident is seemingly going unnoticed. Another kid allegedly plotted to shoot up a school, take innocent lives and place bombs in choice spots, for the sake of the police.
Tulsa World reports:
An 18-year-old Bartlesville High School student was arrested early Friday after police uncovered an alleged school-shooting massacre plot.
Sammie Eaglebear Chavez attempted to recruit students in the school cafeteria on Wednesday to help him carry out a massive school shooting and bombing plot, police allege in a court affidavit.
Prosecutors charged Chavez later Friday with planning, attempting or conspiring to perform an act of violence. District Judge Curtis DeLapp set Chavez’s bail at $1 million.
The charge says Chavez intended to cause serious bodily harm or death to other students.
“Sammie tried to recruit other students to assist him with carrying out a plan to lure students into the school auditorium where he planned to begin shooting them after chaining the doors shut,” Bartlesville Police Lt. Kevin Ickleberry wrote in the affidavit, which was filed in Washington County District Court.
“He also told them that if the students assisting him did not do what they were supposed to do, he would not hesitate to kill them and/or himself.”
The kid had been researching the Columbine shootings, according to students. The police were then notified Thursday afternoon, but apparently this was not a copy cat undertaking after yesterdays’ events. This kid has allegedly been plotting this for some time now.
Chavez had told the students he tried to bring into his plot that he would place bombs by the auditorium doors and that when police arrived, he would detonate them.
As police conducted their investigation, officers learned that Chavez had told a teacher last week that he’d bought a Colt .45 gun and had spent the weekend shooting it, the affidavit says.
Chavez, who had been attempting to obtain a map or diagram of the high school facilities, had been using a school computer to search for information on a Marlin Model 99M — a .22-caliber rifle on a machine gun platform, the affidavit states.
Police arrested Chavez at his home in the 100 block of Southwest Adeline Avenue about 4:50 a.m. Friday on a warrant signed by Special Judge John Gerkin, Bartlesville Police Capt. Jay Hastings said.
This part in particular is unnerving as fuck, “As a condition of his bond, DeLapp ordered Chavez to stay away from Bartlesville schools and from weapons.” Surely an upstanding kid like this will adere to the rules. Don’t worry, your kids will be fine.
Shouldn’t this kid be in a locked down psych ward?
