Charges detail Waukesha pre-teens' attempt to kill classmate
Journal Sentinel ^ | June 2, 2014 | Ellen Gabler

Posted on 06/03/2014 4:12:20 AM PDT by Freeport

The 12-year-old girls had been plotting the murder for months, police say.

Morgan E. Geyser was allowed to have two friends over each year for her birthday. This year, she'd celebrate on May 30. That is the day she and Anissa E. Weier would try to kill their friend during a sleepover.

On Monday, the two Waukesha girls were charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court as adults with attempted first-degree intentional homicide, each facing up to 65 years in prison. Their victim, another 12-year-old from Waukesha, was stabbed 19 times by either Geyser or Weier or both, according to a criminal complaint. All three attend Horning Middle School in Waukesha.

Geyser and Weier are being held on $500,000 bail each. The pre-teens attempted murder, they told police, to pay homage to a fictional character who they believed was real after reading about him on a website devoted to horror stories.

On Saturday, a bicyclist found the victim, lying on the sidewalk and covered in blood, with injuries to her arms, legs and torso. She had managed to crawl out of the woods, where the suspects had left her. She was rushed to a hospital, where she was in stable condition Monday evening, but fighting for her life.

I hope the victim survives. These stories show what happens in a post-Christian world...

I can’t get my mind around this.

But let’s make sure they don’t hear anything about God in the classroom.

It would be interesting to know just how much these girls were delving into the occult world. They indicated that they were devoted to (worshiped??) Slinder and willing to do a ritualistic murder for him. I’m betting that it goes deeper than that. Were they practicing “witchcraft” like teens seen in some popular movies (even Disney movies like “Teen Witch”)?

This isn’t just innocent teenage fantasy play-time stuff. It allows real demons to eventually take over their lives.

It’ll be the fault of conservatives, somehow. Leftists advocate nonviolence, you see, so it must be somebody else.

Yes...why is this information in the story>?

“Schimel, a Republican running for state attorney general, said he had to bring the case in adult court because of the level of charges against the girls. He said he expected the girls’ attorneys to attempt to “reverse waive” them into juvenile court, which he said he would resist.”

Because it’s MEAN REPUBLICANS who want to try these young girls in adult court.

They can hear about it in CCD, at home, bible camp, or a mirid of other places.

A class on respect seems more apropriate to school.

I thought she had died. She crawled out of the woods, the poor girl, but she’s alive. Her attackers are truly psychotic. I want to know what this fictional character is, and who the author is.

“Leftists advocate nonviolence, you see, so it must be somebody else.”
//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

The left advocates nonviolence right up until you disagree with their agenda, then they want to kill you. I am not being sarcastic, just telling it as I see it. It is astounding the way these twisted people talk about how tolerant and compassionate they are and then when a conservative figure like Breitbart suddenly dies you hear, “Oh, maybe there IS a God after all.” Sick, sick, sick and disgusting and they project their sickness onto those who disagree with them even as they pat themselves on the back for being so wonderful. Psychic vampires is the best description of these degenerates. They condemn everything good in others while imagining themselves to possess all virtue.

How can your schools teach history without mention of Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, Shinto, even islam (to name a few)?

As the driving forces for the world's philosophies, and thus its governments, any worthwhile study of history would demand some consideration of the basic principles of the world's religions.

Christianity, whether you like it or not, has been a major factor in the formation of Western Civilization, including America.

It isn't possible to teach anything but a string of names and dates without delving into what motivated those who shaped their world.

I’m with you, they were practicing witchcraft, and you can see the demon in the girls eyes in one picture..They always have that empty not present look...Thank God for a bible believing old-school grandma in my early history....The whole family, for that matter...Good God fearing country folk, and at the last reunion over 100 people young and old bowed their heads without hesitation when asked to give thanks before the meal....That’s what America was built on and has lost......

I saw this story yesterday but refrained from posting it out of deep sadness, shock, and disgust. Instead, I sent it to all of my children who are raising teens. It is too soon to determine the “WHY”, but we certainly can credit lack of parental supervision over their teens’ on line activities. These kids are from “nice” areas.

After the courts deal with these teens, I hope their find the sicko who posted this “game” on the Internet.

May the victim recover physically and psychologically.

I watched a ‘48 Hours’ (or the like) episode on a story like this, just last week. The girls were in High School, but the story was the same. No remorse, no comprehension of the EVIL they had committed. None.

Life matters so little. Thanks, Democrats! But, Roe v. Wade was all about women’s ‘privacy’ and not the taking of a human life. Grrrrrrr!

The only school prayers allowed are after the mass shootings.

Then they get a one-day ‘hall pass’.

Creepypasta is just a site for scary internet ghost stories. Killing someone over anything on it is like killing someone over Dungeons & Dragons. A person has to already have some psychological flaw to go nuts over something like that. If not Creepypasta it would have been something else at some point.

"attempted first-degree intentional homicide"

I am sorry, but what the F is this? Is someone trying to redefine murder?

Uh?

Go to “Slender Man” fansites and you’ll eventually find the individual who convinced these girls that it was real, imho. I’ve been disturbed by my niece’s fascination with Minecraft. The game itself is not necessarily the problem, seems sort of passive and dull, but the 26 and even 30 year old male fans with YouTube channels, the chat boards, it’s not a solo pastime.

This happened a few days ago... and here I go and read this article... and it spells out EVERYTHING, paints a full and detail picture of the events that allegedly transpired. I am very curious what the whole story is. I am very curious how this was investigated... particularly because this is a case involving minors...

I am very curious how ALL the details of the case are released instantly to the press so quickly and openly... when we have adult news stories that we can’t get answers to like Benghazi, IRS scandal, Fast And Furious, Operation Choke Point, NSA spying, &c.

Maybe the suspects were blabbermouths, but the way this news story comes right out is... odd.

When the crime was discovered, the DA here said he would not release details until he had all the information he needed for a case. It was all released at one time because that’s the way he did it!

We have a smart and tough DA in our county. The attackers will be charged fairly and he will make a good case against them.

And I want to know what the girls’ parents were doing about teaching them the difference between good and evil.

The 12 year-old girls in question look a bit messy but almost normal on the outside. On the inside, I suspect they are pure evil.

” fictional character who they believed was real after reading about him on a website devoted to horror stories”

Here is the critical piece of the story. Unfettered access to online materials. Impressionable girls raised in an environment of unbridled entitlement and detached reality. Compassion interpreted as weakness. An appreciation for perversion.

Why stab the girl to death?

Why not? It might be fun.

It’s not the fault of the character UNLESS the character was created to elicit such a response.

What religious upbringing/instruction did these girls receive in their lives? Did their parents teach them about God, the Ten Commandments, church attendance? Were their parents involved in their lives, their computer activities, their phone conversations? Did these parents know what their daughters did together as friends, what their interests were?

God help the parents of today. These kids are subjected to so much evil in the name of TV entertainment, music, videos, etc. In the case of these two kids, they couldn’t separate fiction/fantasy from reality. And they thought nothing about killing a friend...that’s evil.

I agree, but unfortunately most people don’t believe in (or fear) demons anymore...

If the victim didn’t die, the criminals can’t be charged with murder.

It would be interesting to know just how much these girls were delving into the occult world.

I saw one article with photos from the dad's instagram. He had posted photos of her drawing slender man and his comments showed he thought it was "cool." Note her "hipster" glasses. He posted a lot of gothic type skull stuff and they're the "cool" kind of family that's "into" the death stuff. I see many people around my age and younger getting into what is basically a death-worship lifestyle, with skull decorations, etc., even wanting skull-print fabric for nurseries. We are headed deeply into the post-Christian world.

Just located the link to the article with the instagram photos after I wrote the above. Here it is: http://hollywoodlife.com/2014/06/03/slender-man-stabbings-12-year-olds-morgan-geyser-anissa-weier/
