SEPTEMBER 7--Alarmed by Facebook posts promoting a Killing Spree this month in Littleton, Colorado--home to Columbine High School--FBI agents last week raided a residence allegedly connected to the online threats and seized several guns and eight books and notebook involving killing, court records show.
Law enforcement officials learned of the Facebook posts after a tipster contacted police in Littleton to report a variety of disturbing images and messages on a Facebook page in the name Eric Rebdomine. One of the Columbine killers, Eric Harris, used the online alias Rebdomine.
Investigators discovered that the Rebdomine account had created a Facebook event announcing the planned Killing Spree in Littleton. Join me on September 14th and kill as many people as possible, the notice stated.
The tipster told cops that when she initially visited the page, she saw that 180 people had been invited to the KILLING SPREE, and 37 had responded that they were coming, according to an FBI affidavit sworn by Agent Russell Humphrey.

The peeps or the FBI?
Must be something in that Colorado Kool-aid.
Not Colorado, it appears South Carolina.
>> As part of its probe of potential online death threats, FBI agents served Facebook with a search warrant for IP addresses associated with the Rebdomine account. Then, with the assistance of an Internet service provider, investigators tracked log-ins to the account to a Beaufort, South Carolina home. <<
Arrest them all, convict them all and sentence them all to the maximum!
No deals, no leniency, no sad stories.
Nah. If someone invited me to something like that, I would have figured it was a goof and said 'sure!'.
Well, with stories like this, it’s hard to tell if it’s a nutjob that was really planning something or just your usual nutjob roaming around the internet doing really stupid things that they think are funny. When the government is poking around looking at Facebook pages and matching them up with some list of red flags that Napolitano comes up with, I’d be surprised if they caught any real crazies.
Kids need good fathers, good mothers and a resurgence of American morality.
Arrest them all, convict them all and sentence them all to the maximum! No deals, no leniency, no sad stories.
Nah. If someone invited me to something like that, I would have figured it was a goof and said ‘sure!’
Well sure I mean that sounds like something to goof around about.............
