The Monsters are Due on Main Street

Day before Parkland, grandmother foiled grandson’s school shooting plans

In his own words:


"I'm preparing myself for the school shooting,” the teenager wrote, according to court documents. “I can’t wait. My aim has gotten much more accurate ... I can’t wait to walk into that class and blow all those f---ers away."

“I’ve been thinking alot [sic],” the entry said. “I need to make this shooting/bombing at Kamiak infamous. I need to get the biggest fatality number I possibly can. I need to make this count.”

“I’ve been reviewing many mass shootings/bombings (and attempted bombings),” he added, according to the court documents. “I’m learning from past shooters/bombers mistakes, so I don’t make the same ones.”
Comments: I could care less if the AR-15 were banned - the problem is not with this gun. We live in a sick society that spawns these monsters. PJ Media has a helpful article that is related:
5 Terrible Things the Media Communicates to Every Potential School Shooter:
  1. You will be famous
  2. The world will come to a stop for you and talk about nothing else for days
  3. A school is the target that will get you the most attention
  4. You should use an AR-15; they are the most dangerous and cool
  5. No one will shoot back at you at a school—and we’ll make damned sure it stays that way!

One time out on pastoral visitation (as an aside - every pastor should really visit in the homes of his congregants. You'll learn a lot!). I was visiting in the home of a family that had a very filthy house. It smelled and it was sticky. They knew I was coming and did nothing (apparently) to prepare for my visit. I was afraid to sit down (but of course I did). They had among other filthy things a very dirty aquarium. The image below represents what I saw. And in that turbid, murky water little goldfish were fighting to survive.


This is the world in which we live: a fallen, wicked, dirty, polluted, confused world that needs the light of the Gospel.

Update: I renamed this blog post to The Monsters are Due on Main Street on 2/19 (after the Twilight Zone episode The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street. I used "Main Street" because it is one of the most common street names in the United States

  1. I'm not convinced that the FBI is to blame for this. They may have wanted the shooting to take place. The CIA wants to use school shootings to take guns away from American citizens, so it's a good idea to remember that many of these shootings aren't in reality the way they are portrayed in the news. And of course I think that everyone knows by now that Sandy Hook was totally staged and probably not even real at all. Sadly, the FL shooting was real.
