The Philadelphia local channels are swarming with the story about the kid who got caught before he could recreate the scene from Columbine [NY Times Article].

The bright side to this story, some one came forward. The troubled yute was trying to recruit and enlist the help of his peers. One of them still had full use of his brain and told his parents who then went to the police and stopped the whole scenario before more innocent kids (or teachers) wound up dead.

Can we please give this kid, the one who came forward, a fucking medal? Seriously. It’s borderline common-sense, but it’s also something that should be recognized as the best thing to do in such a situation. Encourage, educate, get the damned word out. Someone get this kid atleast… a lap dance, or something!
