A plot to orchestrate another gun frenzy was foiled yesterday in the US.....

BARTLESVILLE, Okla. (AP) — An Oklahoma high school student is in custody on charges he plotted to bomb and shoot students at the Bartlesville High School auditorium on the same day 26 people were shot and killed at an elementary school in Connecticut.

Police arrested 18-year-old Sammie Eaglebear Chavez at about 4:30 a.m. Friday after learning of the alleged plot Thursday.

An arrest affidavit says Chavez tried to convince other students to help him lure students into the auditorium, chain the doors shut and start shooting. The Tulsa World reports that authorities say Chavez threatened to kill students who didn't help.

The Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise reports Chavez planned to detonate bombs at the doors as police arrived.

The school district says students were never in danger. Chavez is being held on $1 million bond.

It baffles me Stray. I really can't get my head around it......and in the vast majority of cases it appears to be a *boy* commiting these atrocities....wonder why that is?

Some are saying on the www in the comments sections from the US that they feel too much publicity is given and background about the people that do this..I wonder if anyone else feels that may be a contributing factor.?......(obviously as well as loads of other factors too)

Bloody odd way to want to leave your mark on the world imho. :-(
