Now that I think of it, hasn't he posted a lot in that ''ms paint your school pet peeves'' thread, claiming how much he hated his classmates and how he is the only ''smart'' guy in his class?
As Zerok has already said, we're going to be affected by hindsight looking for so-called "clues" in sirtom93's past posts. Sure, evidence of him hating his school colleagues will be a factor in his decision to make his "plan", his actual threat that started this thread says that. However, it can't have been the single one decision. I mean, I hated a large majority of my school colleagues, but I never threatened to burn the school down or anything. The most I ever did was a quick, angry insult. Now I'm doing A Levels at college, and the only things there that stress me out are work-related (or me being bad at work-related). I could delve into it psychologically and bring up that I often blame myself for my own problems, but we're going off-topic and boring the officers. Yo, Zerok: I need you over here on a psychology issue!

And I didn't even talk about the social implications. You want to drive a man crazy? Shove ten cameras in his face all day long and harass the hell out of him. I'd assume guys like sirtom have a long history of perceiving abuse from their surrounds. Sicking the media on the kid would only mess him up more.
Absolutely. I mean, look at Aileen Wuornos. I believe her last words on film were practically a "fuck you" to the media who had only aimed to make money off her case. Okay, sirtom93 isn't exactly a serial killer prostitute, but the principle is the same I think.
