It seems that the gunman from the 1997 Heath High School shooting in Paducah, Kentucky has his own market for murderabilia.
Michael Carneal killed 2 and injured five at Heath High. As far as I’m concerned, he is the one who started the chain reaction of school shootings in this country in the late 1990s. First, it was Paducah then Jonesboro then Kip Kinkel then Columbine. So if you ever wanted to know how this all got started, it’s the face behind the coke bottle glasses over there. Carneal is currently serving a life sentence.
Carneal isn’t the one making money off of himself; however, there are several websites out there that are selling items that belonged to Carneal, such as letters and drawings.
Murderabilia is nothing new, it’s been around for decades, however with the proliferation of the internet it has become easier for people who deal and collect this trash to do business.
Now, I’m not going to say that these websites should be against the law. That would be a slippery slope that could end up with things like true crime novels being banned. What I want to talk about is the human trash that buys this crap.
Now I know that you’re going to say that it’s a piece of history and that you’re not actually a fan of killers like Carneal. That’s really a load of crap, and you know it. Unless you’re an anthropologist, or sociologist or criminologist or something along similar lines, you’re just a murder groupie. You are defective mentally and a drain on society. Get help.
