Michigan school attack thwarted after parents turn in 15-year-old son armed with stolen guns, Molotov cocktails

Published

A potential massacre was averted in Paw Paw, Michigan when the parents of a bullied teen turned in their 15-year-old son who confessed that he had amassed weapons and made bombs to attack classmates at his high school, WOOD is reporting.

According to the report, the unnamed teen confessed to his mother and his stepdad that he was “planning to do something bad,” and was preparing an assault — leading his parents to turn him into the authorities, who may try him as an adult.

Speaking with the station, the teen’s parents claimed that their son had been bullied since moving into the district last year, and that things took a turn for the worse when a photo of him in his underwear was circulated by his classmates this year.

“He came to us and said that he’s been really upset and said that he’s been planning to do something bad,” the boy’s stepfather explained before adding the bullying has “been relentless.”

Explaining that his stepson confessed on Sunday that he had stolen guns from his grandfather and cut them down to fit into a bag, the father said he planned to focus on classmates who he felt had hurt him.

“He wanted to blow the school up on top of him,” the stepfather stated. “I was in shock. I just couldn’t believe it. … We couldn’t think at that point. How’d this even get to this point?”

According to the report, the teen agreed to be turned in by saying he needed help.

“He wanted to go. He knew that he needed help,” the stepfather said. “He walked right into the lobby and was like, ‘This is what I’ve been planning on doing.’ He said, ‘This is where you can find everything.'”

On Monday he was arraigned on eight criminal charges, including felony larceny of weapons, possession of a short-barreled shotgun or rifle, attempted manufacture of explosives and a misdemeanor charge of possession of a Molotov cocktail.

President Donald Trump this week mocked one of his Hispanic supporters during a campaign rally by claiming that he looked white and then asking him, "Who do you like more, the country or the Hispanics?"

In an interview with ABC News, Republican consultant Mike Madrid slammed Trump and said his remarks made it sound like he was trying to make "a distinction between Hispanics and true Americans."

Madrid added that the president seems to believe that Hispanics must renounce their heritage in order to be truly accepted as American citizens.

South Carolina woman who told cops they can’t arrest a ‘white, clean girl’ pleaded guilty to DUI: report

Published

on

Last year, 34-year-old Lauren Cutshaw of South Carolina was arrested in Bluffton after running a four-way stop sign at 60 miles an hour. Her blood alcohol level was registered at 0.18 — more than double the legal limit — and she admitted to being high and had marijuana paraphernalia in her car.

According to police reports at the time, Cutshaw offered an unusual defense of her behavior to the arresting officer: she shouldn't go to jail because she's a "thoroughbred ... white, clean girl" who was a cheerleader and sorority sister who graduated with "perfect grades" from a "high accredited university."
