Schoolboy Death Note “The Next Columbine!”

Ryuk-Child-by-ObataTakeshi

The almighty influence of the Death Note series has apparently inspired a New Hampshire school student to write up a death-inducing notebook of his own, naturally leading to a crisis amongst concerned parents upon the harmless notebook’s discovery.

The “Death Note” in question contained the names of 17 students attending the school and also provided reasons how the students wronged the anonymous writer, with some reasons being as simple as “a dirty look in 2nd grade, 8 years ago” – in addition to the date and times of their supposed death.

One particularly upset parent who wrote to the school faculty even compared the potentially dangerous event to Columbine, a statement that even now some might regard as a tiny bit of an overreaction:

“My daughter doesn’t want to return to school and is afraid for her safety both at school and outside of school…I REFUSE to take this lightly. School shootings start with a list of people who have wronged an individual… ​I don’t want [the school] to be the next Columbine because we didn’t take a death threat list seriously.​”

Police investigation determined that the writer in question had no murderous intent after interviewing the culprit and parents, with some believing the notebook might have been created due to stress, bullying or other personal conflicts, rather than an imminent exercise of the student’s Second Amendment rights as an American.

While not the first instance of an “actual” Death Note making its appearance at a school, the sheer number of cases may yet prove useful in reviving the show’s popularity – perhaps even more so if the subject of a moral panic and ban.

    Guns don't kill people. Notebooks kill people.

    Considering the possible abuses the child must have been subjected to while at school there may be grounds for legal action. Against the school for negligence, and perhaps the parents of the offending students for harassment.

    School shootings don't start with a list, school shootings start with easy accessible guns. Get rid of guns, and maybe some day you can get rid of your culture of fear of everything, dumbheads.....

    When I was in school, I drew tons of comics depicting extremely graphic violent acts towards asshole kids and terrible teachers. I'd never get away with that in current society.

    But guess what? I didn't magically become a terrorist or murderer, contrary to what idiots believed. And I'm sure I'm not the only one.

    People jump to ridiculous conclusions, when in reality they have zero understanding or knowledge of anything.

    It's called hysteria. Stupid people make up stupid shit.

    Not even sure why this is news considering kids can't chew pop tarts into the shape of a gun.

    so did the kid actually mention the death note comic/cartoon? or is this just a list of people he wants to die?

    It is of utmost importance that the schoolboy's constitutional right to bear arms be protected at all costs whilst ensuring the safety of his classmates by confiscating all his notebooks and means of writing in any form or shape -- pens and pencils are equally dangerous and should strictly be kept outside his reach.

    Children don't have rights, sure, next time we see minors impersonating as adults and writing tons of curse words just to make themselves look mature, I suggest we yell down on them to let them know their rights.

    Since almost anyone can visit adult sites and post anonymously like on here, you'd think there isn't any kids posting craps everywhere? And then concerned parents starts blaming anime/manga for their children's misbehavior...

    America sure loves to give children rights these days. No wonder they've become such a public nuisance.

    Hasn't that happened already? Old shit, out of the fashion etc. Real life Death Notes are the new shit.

    Hit lists aren't new, they've been written long before Death Note for pissed off students and kids. It was an issue in the 90s, and again in the 2000s, and the only difference is now they call them 'Death Notes' because of the show.

    Nothing more to see here.

    maybe I'm missing it, but where does it say it was a 5th-grader?

    Not missing it. he article says 7th. However, it took 8 years to move up 5 grade levels? That says something about the student.
