Oklahoma school shooting plotter arrested on day of Newtown, Conn., massacre

At the same time it was reporting the rising death toll in Newtown, Conn., the Tulsa World newspaper was covering what could only in that case be called happier news: the arrest of an 18-year-old Bartlesville High School student in connection with a plot to massacre his classmates.

The World reports:

Sammie Eaglebear Chavez attempted to recruit students in the school cafeteria on Wednesday to help him carry out a massive school shooting and bombing plot, police allege in a court affidavit.

“Sammie tried to recruit other students to assist him with carrying out a plan to lure students into the school auditorium where he planned to begin shooting them after chaining the doors shut,” Bartlesville Police Lt. Kevin Ickleberry wrote in the affidavit, which was filed in Washington County District Court.

Authorities also say that Chavez had told a teacher he had just purchased a gun, although that has not been confirmed. He had been researching pipe bombs and the Columbine school shooting on the school’s computer, and allegedly had planned to detonate bombs at the school doors as police arrived.

Our thanks go to the school administrators and police who took notice and averted the threat.

    There are no Morals in Society anymore, but what the heck it starts at the Top, look at Washington, a President who hung 4 Americans out to dry in Benghazi, a Congress who see’s Bestiality as acceptable, a DOJ full of corruption just look at Fast and Furious, teachers who teach 3rd graders that homosexuality is the norm, So called Hollywood stars who are above the law……should I go on?

    We sorely need a president with solid moral values as Mitt Romney: god-fearing, humble, principled, family-loving, and caring to the less fortunate. He would have led this country on a sound moral path and we would not have the divisiveness, hate-mongering, and lying that is going on with this president. Things can only get worse with this guy in office. When you knew that 4 people died in Benghazi and two hours later you are partying in Las Vegas, that sends the message that human life is not worth a damn. Some young person out there with a sick mind will see that and take notice.

    Congratulations Liberal Progressives! The progeny of your permissive, ammoral, obscenity loving, perverted dreams are coming into their own. These are the generations you taught to believe that they descended from apes. These are the generations conditioned from birth by the violent, bloody, obscene slop that comes out of Hollywood. These are the generations who listen to music and enjoy “games” that glorify destroying human life for fun. These are the generations who’ve been taught that copulating like animals is acceptable and so is snuffing out the innocent life that results from it. These are the generations you went to such great lengths to keep the knowledge of the Almighty and moral mandates from taking root within. These are the generations you have taught that following their every carnal impulse and fantasy is their “right.” What did you expect? Now all of us must reap what you have sown.
