Another Columbine Averted in Daytona Beach, Florida

Three Florida children were caught a week ago in the alleged planning stages of a school shooting incident such as at Columbine. The three thirteen year olds were reportedly arrested yesterday for conspiracy to commit murder, a felony.

The plot was uncovered through electronics: text messages, webpages, etc.

According to her sister, one of the kids tried to commit suicide a few days earlier, over her boyfriend’s breakup with her.

All three teens’ mental health was evaluated under Florida’s Baker Act.

The alleged ringleader was angry over being teased by peers. Although he was angry at two particular students, he posted on a website that he wanted to kill as many students as possible – and then themselves.

It has not yet been announced whether the teenagers will be tried as juveniles or adults.
