Maryland Student Who Threatened Shooting Spree Is Arrested
World

A student who threatened to go on a shooting rampage was arrested on Sunday.  University of Maryland student Alexander Song posted a message on a website detailing plans for a campus shooting spree that would ‘kill enough people to make it to national news’.

He added a warning that people should ‘stay away from the mall tomorrow at 1.30’.

Song, 19, was taken to a hospital for a psychiatric evaluation after his arrest and faces a misdemeanor charge of disturbing school activities.

The university website describes Song as a member of a campus research program for select honors students who explore how science and technology relates with society.

The Gemstone Program lists Song, from Fulton, Maryland, as scheduled to graduate in 2014.

Police say the university administration has moved to immediately suspend Song and ban him from campus pending a review.

Song was unarmed when arrested. It is not clear whether he has an attorney.

10 Things Men Need To Start Doing To Become Gentlemen Again

The world works in funny ways. I blame it on mankind’s zealous oversimplification of complex problems. When we discover that a part of our culture is flawed, if we find that the way things are is not ideal, we label it as wrong, making a 180-degree turn in the opposite direction. Take, for example, the […]
