SAINT JOHN, N.B. - Three teenage boys have been arrested for allegedly conspiring to seize control of a school and methodically murder some of its students and teachers.

Police found gunpowder and other material used for making pipe bombs at the boys' homes and believe the youths had practised making bombs.

The boys, aged 15 to 17, were Saint John air cadets and their alleged plot was planned for April 20, the anniversary of the 1999 Columbine High School massacre where 12 students and a teacher were killed.

At a Saint John bail hearing for the two eldest teenagers on Wednesday, police Constable Rick Russell said the boys were plotting a "planned takeover" of Saint John High where one of the boys is a pupil. The other two are from Harbourview High.

It is terrible that such a plot was conceived, though mercifully discovered in time.

The first school shooting (prior to Columbine) by a student took place in my state, during which a teacher, a sister-in-law of one of my neighbors, was one of those slain. There was another such event at another school after Columbine.

Thus I think it is inappropriate to present the story as a dig at Canada. Such things are a tragedy anywhere they happen.

But isn't it time for somebody to stand up and say, "No more!'?

There is no evidence from all of those sorts of posts in SE that they change anybody's mind. They just make for hard feelings, exchanges of insults, and flaming.

I'm sure you recall the days when we could discuss important (and unimportant, though fun!) topics without sniping at one another.

So because you were in Viet Nam you have declared war on

anybody who disagrees with you, regardless of the fact that you live in a democracy where free speech is guaranteed. Is that because you are the possessor of all wisdom or annointed by God or something, or is this something you took on yourself?

I'm just trying to figure out why the two things are joined in your mind, especially when we're talking here about High School students in either Newfoundland or New Brunswick. Why does Viet Nam and your personal crusade come into it?

These exchanges have got to stop, and who started the whole bit doesn't matter.
