This clown is so deluded, he was actually planning a worse attack than that inflicted on Columbine some years back by the hopeless mass murdering pair (whose names I cannot be bothered to remember or mention). How anybody becomes so hate filled is something I am yet to understand but then again mental health issues could be playing a part here.
Good thing for the ever vigilant security forces though. They got wind of the plan and nailed it before it ever was actualized! Bravo I say. And I hope they lock the creep up and throw the key where the sun don’t shine!

An Oregon teenager is accused of meticulously plotting to blow up his high school in an attack ‘forged and inspired by’ the Columbine shootings.
Grant Acord, 17, was arrested on Thursday night after police received a tip that he was making a bomb to blow up West Albany High School.
On Saturday, investigators found six explosives hidden under floorboards at his mother’s house. The weapons included pipe bombs, Molotov cocktails, a Drano bomb, a napalm bomb and explosives made from drain cleaner.
He also had ‘plans checklists, diagrams, inspirations, sources and a focus on recreating the model of Columbine, with adjustments that would make it more successful,’ according to Benton County District Attorney John Haroldson.
‘This was a very methodical process,’ Haroldson said. ‘He took time to even get to this point.’
Police have not yet pinpointed a motive for the plot.
Haroldson said he wasn’t aware that the teen was having trouble at school, or being bullied. He was described as quiet and a loner by other students, though one student said he seemed like ‘a pretty nice guy.
‘In any case that you have a young person that in essence plans to take a video game approach to killing people at school, you have to take a close look at the mental health issues,’ he said. ‘And the process will certainly provide for that once he’s represented by counsel.’
The teen will be arraigned Tuesday as an adult on one count of aggravated attempted murder and six counts each of manufacturing a destructive device, possession of a destructive device and possession of a weapon with intent to use it against another person.
Police accompanied by K-9 dogs found no bombs during two searches of West Albany High, which is about 75 miles south of Portland.
