If they go through my room at any one point they would also find matches and a few knives, that doesn't mean those items were going to be used in a school massacre. Cheap journalism.

So after some more detailed news article reading, apparently he was carrying the flammable material, matches and a knife in his schoolbag, at school. Which I suppose does infer that he is a twisted mofo.

They probably don't want to reveal the website, cuz the world is mad at NG for the whole Torture Chamber games thing. "How could such a terrible website help stop a criminal?"
Brother please.

Just wanted to see if this story was worthy of being on the main news headlines page on the BBC website(no btw), and reading the headlines I discovered a very sad horrible story of animal cruelty, which I cried to while reading it. While I am aware that Sirtom didn't kill this animal, it's his fault for being such a little prick and trying to blow up people that my eyes were on this page in the first place!

Wow, that's an half a hour away from me. Wasn't me, I can't legally drive yet. Plus it's an animal, I wouldn't hurt it.

BBC News 24 hasn't mentioned anything yet, and I don't think ITN actuall y know about it yet. *checks on the web* Not yet. Plus the BBC News Ticker is stuck on Breaking News, which sucks.

The NG BBS has reached a whole new level of awesome. At least, demonstrated in this thread.

I spent about an hour reading through the pages of this thread, and I was awestruck at the call to responsibility shown by the moderators, Tom and Wade.

Ask any regular. They know that the BBS can be a infestation of moronic, silly and immature threads and users; however, in a great outreach of responsibility, information was being compiled through the concerned members of newgrounds, and the result? Innocent lives were saved.

My only regret I just found this on the 20th page. I also resent the fact that the efforts made by the users here weren't credited by the online news sources, but maybe for good reason.

Kudos to all that helped in the effort. It's days like this that make the Internet, in particular, Newgrounds, truly awesome.

Uh... what the hell...

I met the guy last August and he seemed so quiet and shy. Guess they're the most obvious basketcases in the long run... I actually took that first picture of him shown in the thread...

Anyway, kudos to everyone who acted out so quickly, especially Rig (I had a beer with a hero Sunday night, I'm so proud :D). The only thing that bothers me is that we'll probably never know if he was about to do it or if it was all just an hoax...

I don't think that'd surprise me actually if they did.

Also, we need to do a sponsored "Buy Deckheadtottie and Rig Superman costumes".

What the fuck happened here? Even if he meant to do it, so what? There are entirely too many idiots in the world, and I'd say they should be wiped the fuck out. He probably wasn't serious anyway. But now you internet knights in shining armor fucked that up, got the kid arrested, and completely ruined the life of someone who actually showed some sort of intelligence, and for what? The lives of a few morons who I'm sure had it coming. If anyone decided to shoot up a school near where I live, I'd fucking donate money for them to get ammo.

Barring some sort of mental disorder which I don't recall him showing any signs of, he wouldn't decide to shoot up, burn down, or otherwise attack his school if they didn't have it fucking coming. I'm sure his situation was just like that of most intelligent people in schools; he got rejected by a society that celebrates stupidity, and when he decided to do the world a favor and wipe the idiots out, his life got fucked over by a few losers on the internet.

I'm posting this on an alt for obvious reasons; I don't really feel like getting carted off to Auschwitz, and that's what would most likely happen if the cops read this post, because apparently the human race is too full of pussies to know what's good for it. I honestly doubt there is anyone in this thread who hasn't wanted some idiots to be wiped out at some point, or actually, most points.

Actually Ng prevented a crime and if he had of done it he would be in more shit than he is now, the news articles say he had the petrol and a kinfe.

So it's ok to commit a crime as long as you have a reason?

Unless it's for the purpose of saving human life, it's never good enough.

yes, but with those little rags wet of gasoline, he could have burned his school to the ground.
