Student allegedly plotting to kill other classmates "influenced" by Naruto anime

^Wait until after this week's arc is over. I mean...for those that watch it. cause i don't. .....:dry:
 
its starting to go over board, please the stuff i drew in high school would have had these people in a fit.
 
Your avatar does the same.
 
"he was influenced by "Naruto" a Japanese cartoon whose main character is described as an "unpredictable adolescent ninja who constantly searches for recognition" by Wikipedia."

Top-notch journalism :rolleyes:
 
Naruto is ******ed, I tried to watch it, but it's just ******ed.
 
Well thank god it was only naruto. Think of what'd happen if he watched black lagoon :wow:.
 
Normally, I'd say that this is complete bull****. But since it could lead to the banning of "Naruto", then I'm all for it. :up:

:woot: Yeah, I like how they cited that source. This is too vague about how an anime was involved.
 
Unless the plot included crushing people with sand, I don't see how Naruto plays into this aside from being something he watches:huh:

Ur surprised? Really??? That's the world of media dude. Columbine was all because of DOOM. Didn't u hear?

Seriously wonder when school systems will fcking wake up and see that the system is horrible and try to do something to fix it. Also, guaranteeing, if the students and teachers in middle and high school weren't as judgmental and cruel- high school shootings would be FAR less frequent. Teachers today get reports from a student and decide to do nothing. Some teachers play the game of "single out a student to ridicule for the year"- sadly that point is indeed true. And it seems some tormentors just want to press the trigger button.

U fix the system, u fix these events from taking place. Schools just need to finally recognize their faults, learn a way to solve it and do so- not learn to find media sources to point their fingers at.

I see that somebody was picked on in school....






Me. :csad:

But guess what? I've never plotted to kill anyone, nor have I acted out violently against anyone for those reasons.

Futhermore, I think blaming the school system is the same as blaming a video game or Naruto for violence. How about we blame those who plan and enact said violence for once? Instead of *****-footing around and scapegoating everything and everyone, why not just lay responsibility on those who are responsible; the violent student themselves (as well as their parents, in some cases).


Oh, and I get bonus points for using "*****-foot" and "scapegoat" in the same sentence.
 
iont give a damn about the kid, Bree Sison is FOINE!!!
 
I hate like, we'll say, 95% of all anime I ever see on television. So, yeah, let's ban Naruto.
 
People picked on me in gradeschool and I never shot the place up......
 
AND i watched DBZ all the time... so I'd say watching Anime probably doesn't really cause insane killings...
 
Hey guys, I'm new here. Been roaming through the boards for a while now and finally decided to register.

There is definitely truth behind the whole bully factor though. I left high school a couple of years ago, thank god. And there were a couple of thoughts that went through my mind back then. One of them was murder. And that's something I'm not really that proud of.

I thought about bombs, I thought about guns. I just flat out thought about getting revenge.

Threatened one of my bullies once and in eighth grade I actually acted like I had this demented split-personality thing to frighten some of the guys away who were bothering me. It worked.

U see back then, as an angry loner, it felt like the whole world was against me. If I resorted to suicide, they won. U just couldn't have that. So u go to the next option that is often chosen- u take them out with u. Yeah, it's a sick way of thinking as I said above. But, it's the truth.

Middle and High School don't become home, it becomes a prison with invisible bars. U tell ur parents, they'll look at u like a freak. Can't tell the few friends u have either. Because chances are they'll tell on u. U can't tell the school or seek help from the school due to the zero tolerance policy. And the teachers who do find out how troubled u r by some kid just brush it off as no big deal. Well to some it is a big deal. Huge deal. So in this whole thing ur kind of sufering alone. Putting on a mask. So many of these parents are shocked by what they learned- this mask is the reason why.

I've looked up online to see if I could find anyone else who thought like I did back then and without looking for long I found MANY teens who had these thoughts and fantasies of revenge. Just giving them all this **** they gave u ovr the year.s - all pushed to this point due to their bullies in school. Being ridiculed on a daily basis to the point that they completely lose self-esteem and feel dead on the inside. Have any of u actually felt dead? Get to that really really dark place in which it seems like there's no escape? I did.

Once u get there, it just gets worse. U withdraw more and more likely u are to do a school shooting. All acting off what U see as being right. Being just. Justice.

Only after do u finally realize that there r others and that that was never the answer and worst choice anyone could make. But, I've been there- been to that point of thinking about it. Making things easier. Thankfully never acted to it and high school's years ago now.

I really see Eddie Brock's downward spiral in SM3 as a relative example. How he saw revenge as a reasonable ends after what Peter did to him. How after he got the suit/gun he went on a rampage and really enjoyed himself because he had the power. We've all been through our own church scene, "please God kill so and so"- only sometimes he gives a boy a gun/symbiote, and others nothing. Those who get a gun, they go and they shoot. Those who don't live in a state knowing what could have been and being happy they survived. Having these thoughts is nothing to be proud of. And these events are tragedies because EVERYONE is a victim.

But, u ask me who gives the boy that gun. It's the bully. Revenge was my prime and only motive in thinking the way I did. Same with others I found online that never did something. Same with those who did something. All stems from the simple act of revenge. One word that kills hundreds.

Guess that's all I have to say. And trust me, I'm well prepared for ur sarcastic remarks- it's not something I'm proud of, just something I went through. So go ahead and blast me away, just wanted to put my two dimes in- or something like that, I forgot... anyways...

~Peace~

Yeah, I don't see any bully handing a gun to someone they mocked, pulled a prank on, or beat up.
 
People are responsible for their own actions.
