Heavy Metal Fan Is Accused Of Opening Fire At A Baltimore High School; Media Blames Incident On RAMMSTEIN & The Manson Family!
According to the Daily News, the teenager who allegedly opened fire on the first day of classes at a suburban Baltimore school is obsessed with German Metal band RAMMSTEIN and the murderous Manson Family.
Bobby Gladden (15) was charged as an adult with attempted first-degree murder and first-degree assault for critically wounding a classmate with a gun blast. He was being held without bail at the local lockup.
Gladden, who listed his nickname as “SuicidalSmile” on Facebook, left a troubling message before he allegedly brought a gun to Perry High School Monday and opened fire.
“First day of school, last day of my life,” he wrote.
It concluded, “F--- the world.”
So how did the media tie Gladden's murder attempt to RAMMSTEIN and the Manson family? Well, Gladden posted a maniacal-looking photo of Till Lindemann (lead singer), and listed under education a book about killer Charles Manson and his followers.
According to Police, Gladden was hiding a gun under his coat when he suddenly pulled the gun out and opened fire in the high school cafeteria. He got off two shots before he was placed in a bear hug by gutsy guidance counselor Jesse Wasmer who held him until cops arrived, witnesses said.
Police have not given a motive for the mayhem that left a 17-year-old Daniel Borowy hospitalized in critical condition with a bullet to his back. Investigators insist Gladden was not gunning for anybody in particular. But Gladden’s dad, Robert, told the Associated Press that their son had been bullied in high school.
“We are horrified,” a relative said on behalf of the parents. “We did not see this coming and our thoughts and prayers are with the victim and the victim’s family.”
“If Wasmer wasn't there, imagine what would have happened,” a grateful student posted on Twitter. “Thank God for him.”
When will the media stop looking for scapegoats when dysfunctional people decide to go postal? Aggressive music does not lead to violent actions, if anything if prevents violent actions. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims family and friends.
