    Default Sol Pais Columbine Self-Righteous Suicide

    She was so retro. Aesthetic, even.*

    In an unusual case, mentally-disturbed and socially-alienated (to an archetypical degree) high school girl became fascinated with death and school shootings, got on a plane to Colorado from Florida, immediately bought a shotgun and made some school shooting threats, then hiked off into the hills and killed herself.


    TLDR, this was what her journal looked like:

    *When I say this, I mean my theory is she was to the style and cultural concept of "emo" and "school shooter" what Kylo Ren was to Darth Vader.

    Darwin award. I'm sure her family feels her loss keenly. The rest of us can well do without her.

    She was so obsessed with Columbine that her website appears to have been made in the era of that tragedy.

    I am happy that there was no mass shooting, but I also wish that this person received the mental help that they needed. It's all so bizarre.
    Requesting suggestions for new sig.

    Apparently she had not made any threats, but was considered a threat because police were aware of her online journal. An imprecise reading of early reports on my part, I apologize.

    The juxtaposition of police capabilities and impotence is something to think about.

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.
