    Default 'Bullied' Home Schooler Arrested

    PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa. — A home-schooled teenager who amassed a cache of weapons, including a hand grenade, and tried to recruit another boy for a possible school attack in Pennsylvania was charged with solicitation to commit terror, authorities said Thursday.

    The 14-year-old, who authorities said had felt bullied, was taken into custody after police raided his home in the Philadelphia suburbs on Wednesday evening. He had talked about mounting an attack on Plymouth Whitemarsh High School similar to the 1999 massacre at Colorado's Columbine High
    School, authorities said. In that incident, two disgruntled teens killed 12 classmates and a teacher before killing themselves.



    The weapons found included a 9 mm assault rifle that the teenager's mother had recently bought for him, Castor said. Police also found about 30 air-powered guns, plus swords, knives, hand grenades, a bomb-making book, videos of the 1999 Columbine attack in Colorado and violence-filled notebooks. The weapons were plainly visible in the boy's bedroom, Castor said.

    They found no ammunition for the most dangerous weapon, the assault rifle.

    "I do not think an attack was imminent and I am not certain that an attack was going to occur at all," District Attorney Bruce L. Castor Jr. said at a news conference. "It could have simply been big talking by a kid who thought that he was bullied previously and he was going to exact his revenge."

    The teen was charged as a juvenile with solicitation to commit terror and other counts and was being held at a youth facility. It was not immediately clear if he had a lawyer.

    Castor declined to name the suspect's parents and said he did not think they had retained lawyers.

    "They are now under investigation by us, concerning whether there's any complicity in putting the weapon in this boy's hands," Castor said.


    Plymouth Township police say they received permission from the boy's parents to search their home after getting a tip Wednesday from a high school student and his father.

    Authorities also found one working hand grenade and three others that were still being assembled.

    Classes were held as usual Thursday at the Pennsylvania high school.

    Mother charged, son to get psychiatric evaluation
    By Kathleen Brady Shea and Rose Ciotta

    Inquirer Staff Writers

    Authorities have charged the mother of the boy who had collected weapons and may have been planning a Columbine-type attack on Plymouth Whitemarsh High School.
    Michele Cossey of East Church Road in Plymouth Meeting was charged with several felonies: endangering the welfare of a child, unlawful transfer of firearms, and aiding the possession of a firearm by a minor.

    She was also charged with corruption of minors and recklessly endangering other persons.

    She was to be arraigned this morning.

    Her home-schooled 14-year-old son, who was found in possession an operative 9mm weapon as well as air guns and a Columbine video, was detained and ordered to under psychiatric and academic evaluations.

    Also, Plymouth Township Deputy Chief of Police Joe Lawrence said there were two other firearms connected to the house, a .22 caliber rifle and a .22 caliber pistol. Lawrence said police found out about those weapons because the mother had given them to a friend so her husband would not know about the weapons.

    In December 2005, the boy's father wanted to get his son a gun for his birthday. He went to Dick's Sporting Goods on Chemical Road in Plymouth Township. He filled out an application for a .22-caliber rifle and lied about his criminal record, saying he had never been convicted of a felony.

    In fact, the dad pleaded guilty in 1981 to first-degree manslaughter for driving while drunk and killing someone in a collision in Oklahoma City. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison and released in 1987. Ironically, according to court documents, the father was also a deserter from the Marine Corps.

    When police learned that the father purchased a gun illegally at Dick's in June 2005, they went to his house on Church Road and confronted him. He met them on the front lawn. He was polite and soft-spoken, police said.

    "He stated that he hadn't been sure if he could buy the firearm or not so he tried to purchase it," a Plymouth Township detective wrote in an affidavit of probable cause.

    In May, a judge sentenced the 54-year-old man to nine months of house arrest for making false statements when buying a gun, a third-degree felony.

    At the time, his wife wrote a letter to the judge begging for leniency. She said her husband was "a decent man" and a "good father" who had "no malice in his heart" when he tried to buy his son "his first child-size rifle."

    Don't get me wrong, Mom and son need a serious ass-beating.

    My problem is that only ONE of those guns in that picture is a REAL GUN, the rest are AIRSOFT pellet guns....Toys.

    WTF is wrong with those cops? F*cking dipshits don't realize that even a crappy lawyer can both get the case tossed out AND sue the department.

    Note to cops:

    Stick to the real weapons and leave the toys in the evidence locker.

    I'm suprised they didn't lay out a Super Soaker too, dumbasses.

    Yep, they shot that picture for dramatic effect...the first thing most people think of when they see that arsenal is of terrorist cells or Ruby Ridge type folks...then we read that all of them were pellet guns save for the 9 mil and well, it just makes the cops who thought taking that picture was cool look like tools.
