Transgender Teen Arrested for Planning Shooting, Bombing at AZ High School

A 16-year old at Red Mountain High School in Mesa Arizona has been arrested for planning to murder her classmates and take her own life. Canadian authorities notified the police after being alerted to threats she made on a Canadian trangender youtube channel, and when the Mesa police questioned her about it today, she admitted her plans to take her parents’ guns and kill students at her high school.

The video below has the local news reporter also mention that her neighbors and family thought part of the angst she was dealing with had to do with sexual identity issues:

These were the comments that Canadian officials say she posted on the trangender forum:

“I now literally have a plan of seriously hurting… killing… murdering people in my high school. And a playlist to do it”

Fox News reports:

The Maricopa County Sheriff Office says the girl had access to guns at her home, but never brought firearms to Red Mountain High School in Mesa.

The agency says investigators arrested the girl at her home Thursday morning and that she admitted to posting the threat.

According to the sheriff’s office, when she posted the comment three days ago, she had serious thoughts and even plans to shoot people and bomb the school. She told deputies she had been planning this in her head before last week’s massacre in Connecticut.

She told investigators she even thought about cutting the wires on the security carts on campus in order to slow the response.

The girl’s parents are being cooperative and admitted to having a few guns in the home.

KTAR reports on what kind of guns she might have had available:

Deputies found a semi-automatic .40 caliber handgun, a .357 revolver and a .22 revolver in the house. The guns had trigger locks and were kept in a gun safe. They were not seized.

Luckily for the students at Red Mountain High School, she was not bright enough to keep her plans a secret. From Arizona NewsZap:

The post continued on by saying “I WORK at the high school as a student teacher basically … which is why no one can find out about me somewhat accidentally planning to blow up the school. (and yes … it would be super easy …).”

This while likely add fuel to the debate as to whether to increase restrictions on gun ownership, or to reconsider our mental health policy:

In the interview by sheriff’s detectives of the girl’s parents both said their daughter has a history of mental health issues, has been seen by a psychiatrist, and had recently been inquiring about where the guns were being kept in the house. The father said he was alarmed by his daughter’s comments and took the additional safety precautions of placing trigger locks on each gun and safeguarding them in a gun safe.

She was questioned within 3 hours of Mesa police being contacted by the Canucks, and has been booked into police custody.

UPDATE:

Red Mountain High School has school club for sexual identity issues called the GSA, the Gay Straight Alliance. It’s been active since at least 2009.

    Arm the teachers that are comfortable and capable of killing to protect the kids! BOOM! School shootings over! These shooters want soft targets like ANY “Gun Free Zone.”

    Most people with mental illnesses are cisgender people. Every mass shooting that has happened in America to date has been conducted by cisgender people, mostly by white heterosexual cisgender men. While I do not intrinsically blame shooting on mental illnesses either, and I’m not trying to apologise for any kind of violent individual terrorism, trans-related or otherwise, objectively people should try to understand that there is prevalent transphobia in society, which is why statistically speaking trans people are more likely to have mental health issues than cisgender people.

    A very prestigious medical university found proof
    positive, via cadavers, having progressive signs of chemical
    lobotomy’s in their subjects. This phenomenon was so pronounced
    it required further study into what was the cause and effect.
    Further study found all subjects had been prescribed and had
    been taking Selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors or
    serotonin-specific re-uptake inhibitors (SSRI’s) =
    Antidepressants. The part of the brain affected was the front
    lobe, some showing up to 70% calcification. The frontal lobe of
    the brain is responsible for human emotions. When this portion
    of the brain becomes non functional it leads to zombie like
    behavior, suicide and extreme violence. Some of these cadavers
    had only been on these medications for a minimal period of time,
    others for years.

    The criminal part of this is that when those funding the school
    (the medical and pharmaceutical community) found out of the test
    and what results it showed, they shut down the program.
    Furthermore, the school was threatened as well as the medical
    students, if word should get out to the public, funding would
    become non-existent in the future.

    Interesting to note: All federal funding for school security across this nation, was cut by the current administration in 2009.

    Correct. There’s a school district in Texas that did so after the Columbine (Prozac) incident. The have not had any violence, in fact school bulling and other acts of violence (fighting) has been remarkably lower since the Superintendent initiated this policy.

    I wonder if the GSA, GLAAD, and other such organizations are going to get blamed for that incident? After all, the NRA was blamed for what happened in Sandy Hook.

    lock that nut away in a mental institution where she belongs. yet another whacked out nutcase. So, are we
    going to deal with the REAL ISSUE in this country for once, which is
    mentally ill nutcases not being locked away in mental institutions where
    they belong? Thankfully, the parents in this case actually
    kept their weapons secured properly., although one wonders if they were unsecured at some point……”In the interview by
    sheriff’s detectives of the girl’s parents both said their daughter has a
    history of mental health issues, has been seen by a psychiatrist, and
    had recently been inquiring about where the guns were being kept in the
    house. The father said he was alarmed by his daughter’s comments and
    took the additional safety precautions of placing trigger locks on each
    gun and safeguarding them in a gun safe”

    it doesn’t matter if she is transgender, cisgender, etc., etc. She is mentally ill and does not belong in society. end of discussion.

    excuse me, I am a transgender female myself. Now, as for the nut in this article, the fact that she is transgender has NOTHING to do with the fact that she is a crazed lunatic and needs to be locked away in a mental institution. .

    Do you honestly believe that being screwed up about sexual identity has no connection whatsoever with your internal brain chemistry? How much denial do you have to be in to believe such ludicrous things?
