Asa Coon needed help.

I don't know about kids today but this issue needs to be addressed.

Some of the kids called him Jack Black, the loud, chubby, long-haired actor in the movie "School of Rock."

He could be loud sometimes, all right, and his appearance cried for attention: his shock of wavy brown hair, his fingernails painted black, the dog collar around his neck, his faded rock concert T-shirts under a trench coat.

But there was another Asa Coon, an Asa Coon far more menacing than the loopy kid with the unkempt hair and faux Gothic look.

This was the Asa who always seemed to be in fights at school. This was the Asa who slapped around his mother. This was the Asa who talked about suicide.

And it was this Asa, authorities say, who walked into SuccessTech Academy Wednesday with a satchel full of guns and ammunition and opened fire on teachers and students.

  • "They remember Asa building fantastic towers out of nothing but paperclips. He could take appliances apart around the house and put them back together. He also liked to help adults fix and build things."

    Had an undiagnosed mental illness, no doubt. Could have been a great boon to society. RIP.

  • I blame the school system and the neglect from his parents. Public schools should not allow many actions that occur daily within the schools. Sounds like people reproduced without a plan in mind on raising their children with respect and ethics.

  • This man deserved to die, he has no redeeming value. Not only is he retarted (building towers out of paper clips is not a sign of intelligence) but he's a slave to gothic exploitation.

    I do blame Manson, he never had to work in his life, he makes money by selling sex, anger and violence to deranged youth. The same way we work against racist or extremist material, we should against this manner of garbage.

    Anyway its good that he is dead and failed to kill anyone else. His family should lea More..

  • there was no way out for this kid if he somehow made it through highschool he would have simply upgraded to guns that are effective at killing people and practiced with them until his murderspree capability was closer to that of the VT slayer. (<-- remember kids you can live in infamy forever as the VT slayer if you try hard enough)
