Teacher Threatened Mass Shooting To Empower Women To Be Serial Killers In New #MeToo Movement, Police Say

Article here. Excerpt:

'Authorities in Las Vegas arrested a high school teacher after she threatened to shoot up a concert so she could start a new #MeToo movement aimed at empowering women to become serial killers.

A Bonanza High School teacher, 48, was arrested earlier this month on terrorism charges after she threatened to "poke a lot of holes in a lot of people" at a concert in Las Vegas in text messages she sent to her friend. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports:

In the series of text messages detailed in her arrest report, (the teacher) had repeatedly romanticized “being remembered” and said she hoped to start another #MeToo movement, “but this time in which women feel empowered enough to become serial killers.”

"A perfect plan with my favorite song surrounded by a bunch of f****** up misfits like I am," the teacher wrote in a text message. "Imagine knowing exactly the moment that you’re going to die. I know exactly that your favorite song will be playing. By your favorite band. It’s just too perfect."'

There is a large difference between leveling false or frivolous accusations against famous men in an effort to make money or do something else, as nasty and vile as that is, and deciding to use ppl for target practice.

The first thing is morally and ethically disgusting and include the breaking of various laws -- at least when the accusations aren't substantive -- and the second thing is mass murder.

The first thing is done by ppl of any number of kinds of personalities and motivations, none of them very defensible. The second thing is done by ppl who are nutty as fruitcakes.

How exactly one can view mass murder as an act of empowerment, I dunno. Such behavior strikes me as an expression of anything but power, except perhaps the power to obtain weapons, figure out how to get them unnoticed into a populous venue, then discharge them at others. As powers go, these are not too impressive. Disturbing, yes. But not too impressive.
