Here we go again. Again.

columbine_high1.jpg     "RIVERTON, Kan. – Five teenage boys accused of plotting to kill other students in a shooting rampage at their high school were arrested Thursday after details of the alleged scheme appeared on the Web site MySpace.com."

"Sheriff's deputies found guns, ammunition, knives and coded messages in the bedroom of one of the suspects, Sheriff Steve Norman said.  Norman said he would ask prosecutors bring charges of conspiracy to commit murder against the young men, ages 16 to 18."

Today, in case you forgot, is the seventh anniversary of the 1999 massacre at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado.

The last part of this article is very interesting: "[Sheriiff] Norman said that the potential victims were popular students and that the suspects may have been bullied. 'I think there was probably some bullying, name calling, chastising,' he said."

Hmmm. Seems to me we've heard that somewhere before.

    It’s good to know they were stupid enough to publish the detail on MySpace.

    We need more criminals like that.

    For all the bad stuff I have said and posted about MySpace, I guess I have to admit that, in this case at least, it served some useful purpose.
