When terror at a high school is mentioned, the majority of the people remember the murders at Columbine, and now reports are coming in that what Jared Cano, 17, had planned for Freedom High School in Tampa would “make Columbine look minor.”
The police have arrested Cano for his plot to bomb the school on the first day of classes next week. According to reports, the bomb plot was planned minute by minute and the intentions were to cause many more casualties than the 1999 Columbine HS Massacre. All together, there were 13 deaths, and then 2 additional when the shooters committed suicide.
At Cano’s apartment, the police found bomb making materials, proving just how serious he was about following through with this attack. We are now finding out that his plan was aimed at some specific administrators and he fully understood that there would be many innocent children that died as well, something that he was totally comfortable with.
Cano has a long criminal history as a juvenile, was a troubled teen, and was “hopeless” according to some of the teens that knew him. The Tampa police may have avoided a senseless bloodbath and have a troubled soul in custody. More to come…
