School shooters tend to fit a certain profile. Typically it’s the kid that constantly gets bullied every class. The same kid also almost always leaves clues but similar to how the world feels about their personal existence, no one cares enough to pay attention to them. But since the world revolves around everything female anything girls are involved in is under society’s microscope. And that’s probably why cryptic messages hinting at a school shooting Pretty Little Liars style got an Ohio high school class canceled so fast. Somehow this will be blamed on the Hollywood instead of bad parenting. Why is everything so complicated now? If you dislike another female simple bathroom stall vandalism in black sharpie would have sufficed. No need scare an entire school into thinking you’re about to pull a We Need To Talk About Kevin. This is an example of attention seeking gone so wrong.
In a terrifying case of life imitating art, two teenage girls made Pretty Little Liars-inspired threats at a Piqua, Ohio high school which led to rumors of a school shooting.
Police reported that on November 30 a 15-year-old girl at Piqua High School created a Snapchat account using the letter “A” in the style of the show’s pseudonymous, terrorizing villain. The teen girl reportedly started posting threats to expose other students’
It wasn’t until a 14-year-old girl wrote on a bathroom wall, “I’m still going to shoot up the school. A.” that a direct threat was made on the school and class was dismissed. The two girls, according to The Daily Call, did not collaborate as “A.” The 15-year-old is being charged with disorderly conduct and the 14-year-old is being charged with inducing panic as a felony.
In High school a girl's main focus is mostly boys, not guns and revenge. My guess is this was an attempt to get out of a test that she didn’t study for taken too far. Back a few years ago skipping a certain period of class was a tad simpler. Bomb threats from a pay phone that were virtually untraceable was common knowledge for anyone wanting an extra day to cram for an exam. One fire department call and 40 minutes later you were in the clear. But pay phones don’t exist anymore and this is what the new generation of kids are resorting to. Such a shame.
