I'd hate that to happen just because of what sirtom did. After what he's tried to do today, I now feel ashamed to think he was a good poster on the BBS. Whatever respect I had for him is good as gone. I know this has been said many times by others already, but thanks to everyone who contacted the authorities and prevented him from causing a huge mess to his school today.

Eh, I suppose you're right. While it doesn't say that he had a legitimate reason for buying petrol, it may well have been for something else entirely that time; you can't tell either way.
I just feel like I've sold razor blades to an emo right now, that's all.

Don't bump it please.

Given the attention this thread is going to get, may I request that my post be deleted before anyone does (if that thread hasn't been locked already)?

All the detective said was that sirtom93 is in custody. He's being interrogated and has given the names of at least two other people who harbor similar intents. I've forwarded the names to Wade - I'm not posting them publicly unless Wade gives the OK.

The first few posts I thought it was a laugh, but then when more posted and a few mods did and stuff I thought it was probably pretty serious, then when Wade did it was kind of "ah he wouldnt bother coming online unless he needed to"

Still all planned attacks posted online are reported etc these days so its stupid to make one for a laugh...or for real.

Do you think that means that he probably was serious?
I mean, he could have just said it was a stupid joke and not take it any further.
They would have noticed that he didn't have the petrol with him, otherwise.

even if sirtom93 wasn't serious about this, threats like this will and shall be taken serious, unless there's an obvious joke going on - in that case, it should be explained clearly. police resources shouldn't be wasted for a lame joke, is what i mean. and if the case is that sirtom is joking, he sure as hell is gonna learn that.

Apparently he has been put in custody. According t someone on page 8. Damn right, I think he should be put in prison! If it was true then he could of injured loads of people and killed a few to.

I bet he will think twice before putting something like this on the internet again.

Police are still required to investigate all threats, and prosecute as necessary.
Even if it was proven beyond all doubt that he was just being an arse he still faces a charge of wasting police time.

But he wouldn't give given another two names unless he was serious.
I wasn't saying they'd just let him go, I was saying that they would have noticed that he didn't have any petrol with him, therefore couldn't have been serious.

If they were indeed monitering this thread, they'd have gotten the idea that he could be joking because a lot of people have implied that he was.

I was just waiting for a police officer to make an account so as to post in this thread. Too bad, it didn't happen.

Even if they did, we'd probably all assume it was just an alt fucking around.
I certainly would.

And to think that this ass is with NG. Man what if he says that we were the ones who made him do this?

I doubt it though. I hope he gets what he deserves, ad that he doesn't return here.

At least the Newgrounds Community will be seen in a positive light again, for preventing a hypothetical major disaster. I say hypothetical as I'm not that sure if he was going through with it.

It was a completely stupid thing to do; idiotic, moronic, selfish, retarded (Don't ban me for using this word - expressing how f**king dumb this action was).

People don't think about the devastation of other peoples lives when these events happen. Think Austin Powers 1, with the Henchman. People you kill have feelings - people who know people killed will have feelings, which will be extremely affected by this puerile discord of Humanity. You think you'd be a Martyr, dying for your cause? Nope, you'd only be remembered for the infamy of your actions - not the human you destroy inside you when you commit acts that destroy others.

You don't lose your future in prison, you steal others as well. Despicable.

Right, rant over. Back to cock jokes.

Luis we are people, and people do random things. Just because you have a metal detector just means we hide explosives next time.

Sounds violent, but there's nothing you can do to prepare for the future. You just have to survive what come and learn how to handle the situation when the situation arises...

All in good time. I'm glad he was apprehended and that the possible crisis was averted.

This must have been fairly big if three people in one school had similar ideas and intentions. Did he have the petrol on him when he went to school or did he leave it at home? Either way this was a pretty big claim and could have led to disaster.

What exactly is it about the newground lifestyle that causes people to go over the edge? Or are we to assume that this is typical teenage behavior?

in all seriousness, with all the bullshit PM's (including death-threats from 14-year olds) one have to put up with for having banned somone, it definitley makes sense to think twice.

i'd recommend some MMA-classes, and that you never ever go to a meetup without your lollipop, man.

They weren't lying: Norfolk is one of the dullest places in the UK. The majority of it is open farmland, so not much happens there.
I can't find anything on their local news pages, so I'll assume nothing really 'happened' as such. It usually takes a few days for stuff that 'almost happened' to reach everywhere, and even then news companies might not air it or anything.

Chances are Wade'll be saying something about this in the near future regardless, though.

I doubt NG is a causal factor. Rather, people with that kind of attitude are attracted to sites like NG... maybe for our roots in violence, or for the publicity and radical, left biased userbase.

Also, in regards to news... that link: http://news.bbc.co.uk/local/norfolk/hi/

It now redirects right to a main BBC site. This morning it was working... COULD THEY BE UPDATING IT?

Internet excitement.
