It seems that maybe parents are finally starting to wake up about the potential dangers that some of their more unstable children can pose. Just recently, we had the Oklahoma City mother who turned in her son to police after she found her son’s alleged plans for a school shooting. More recently, in College Place, Washington, another mother has turned her 17-year-old son in to police after she discovered his alleged plot to attack College Place High School.
Of course, the attack was allegedly planned for April 20, 2020, which is the 21st anniversary of Columbine. I think it’s safe to assume that this kid is a columbiner since most of them consider April 20th to be their high unholy day. The son is also said to have claimed the plot was part of a creative writing assignment. He’s not the first to try that excuse and as far as I can remember that excuse has never worked.
The mother who wishes to remain anonymous says she feels like she’s done the wrong thing. I disagree. Again, while it’s probably one of the most difficult decisions a parent can make it is the right one. Her actions not only saved the life of her son but have also saved the countless lives of the school’s students.
