Schools at risk.

I wrote about a kid plotting a school bombing yesterday, today I read some other, slightly disturbing stories.

Apparently, some kids (three of them) had taken their grievances online, plotting to kill two of their peers, glorifying the Columbine shooters and "Satan" online.
It should be noted that little incidents like these give Satanism a bad name, it's very foundation is that you leave people alone and not bother them.

Another school stepped up security after a threathening not was found posted in the bathroom. This immediately reminded me of another story, almost identical. And yet another highly similar story, That's four of those stories without even really looking.

Is the news simply reporting more on these matters, or is there something up? Maybe there really is something to be said about violent music and video games, or maybe there's something in the water?
Maybe schools are simply overreacting? It wouldn't be the first time. Maybe there's too many green clickable links in this post ...

Honestly, I've got no idea what's up, but I'd love to hear some of your toughts and opinions.
