Is he kidding? Does he have any idea how hard it is to get by Pearly Gates Security? It’s not exactly like slipping past the roadies for Sonic Youth!
FLORENCE, South Carolina (AP) — A teen accused of plotting to blow up his high school told police that he wanted to die, go to heaven and kill Jesus, federal authorities said Tuesday.
Prosecutors argued in a federal courtroom that the statements are an indication that 18-year-old Ryan Schallenberger needs a psychological evaluation.
The straight-A Chesterfield High School senior was arrested April 19 and faces several state and federal charges, including attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction. That charge carries a possible life sentence if he is convicted.
“His conduct is bizarre,” prosecutor Buddy Bethea told Judge Thomas Rogers III, who did not immediately issue a ruling. “I think it screams out in his conduct that he be evaluated.” (H/T – CNN)
“His conduct is bizarre?” Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Buddy Bethea: Master of the Obvious.
