On November 30, 2021, Ethan Crumbley opened fire on students and staff at Oxford High School in the Detroit exurb of Oxford Township, Michigan, United States, killing four students and injuring seven other people, including a teacher. Crumbley allegedly emerged from a school bathroom armed. Prosecutors said he then "methodically and deliberately" walked down a hallway before he began shooting at students and a teacher at close range. Police said Crumbley's alleged actions were "seemingly random". He attempted to open locked classroom doors, and even tried to shoot through doors to kill his fellow classmates.
According to Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe, "Deputies confronted him, he had the weapon on him and deputies took him into custody. The whole thing lasted five minutes." About 15-20 shots were fired and about 100 calls were placed to 911, McCabe said. The shooter, he said, appears to have acted alone. The shootings happened in the south end of the school building which has about 1,800 students, he said. The sheriff said the boy's father purchased the weapon four days ago on Nov. 26, and police found two 15-round clips in the school and are looking for a third. Ethan's gun had 7 rounds in the magazine at the time he was detained. Police said Ethan fired "at least 12" rounds in total.
Ethan and his parents are invoking their right to silence, and have hired a lawyer.
Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard said his office had had no contact with the youth before the incident and "have had nothing to suggest there's been disciplinary … problems with him at the school. So that's part of our investigation to determine what happened prior to this event, and if some signs were missed, how were they missed."
Well, lets have a look at some of the signs that could have been missed!
He's just the perfect little boy, he wouldn't hurt anyone: Ethan Crumbley openly shared disturbing social media posts stating his desire to commit mass murder, including a video the night before that spoke about killing students. (I absolutely cannot find this one.) There is video of him setting off molotov cocktails in the backyard of a residence confirmed to be his. His father, James Crumbley, opted to purchase the Sig Sauer Model SP 2022 used in the shooting two days ago on Black Friday instead of paying child support for his other child in Duvall County, Florida. Ethan and his parents promptly flaunted the shiny new weapon on Instagram. In the days leading up to the shooting, Ethan's Instagram page was flooded with deranged posts, and some students alleging that he was "counting down" the days until the shooting on Snapchat.
Ethan's father being a deadbeat: Ethan lighting up his backyard, and subsequent doxing: Ethan's social media posts before the shooting: Ethan Crumbley, a sophomore, was previously flagged by administrators for “behavior in the classroom that they felt was concerning,” according to Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard. About three hours before the shooting, Ethan's parents were actually called into the school for a face-to-face meeting with the school administration about their son’s behavior. Nathan Swanson, a 10th grader, described Ethan as “really quiet, he would never talk to people.”
Want to know whats even better? His father was formerly employed by Monarch Connected, a "rapidly growing reseller of cloud-based business solutions and GPS technology designed with AI capabilities." They're a security company, which has worked with many American schools, implementing invasive, draconian, and immoral security systems into schools. These systems use artificial intelligence to detect and filter individuals based on clothing, race, gender, color of vehicles, licence plates, and more. They use environmental sensors to detect noise levels, humidity, temperature, and vaping/smoking detectors.
This fuckface worked for a literal workplace security firm, and yet gave a weapon to a 15 year old child who had been known to the school administration for his behavior.
No hope for Ethan's parents: Jennifer Crumbley's open letter to Donald Trump: The 15 year old sophomore murdered fellow students Hana St. Juliana, 14, Justin Shilling, 17, Tate Myre, 16, and Madisyn Baldwin, 17. Seven others were injured in the shooting, including six students and a 47-year-old teacher who had a grazed gunshot wound to the shoulder. The teacher, who was identified as Molly Darnell, has been discharged from the hospital.
Alleged video of Ethan Crumbley attempting to impersonate LE to enter a classroom full of students: Zoomers aren't very smart: The wounded students are Phoebe Arthur, John Asciutto, Riley Franz, Elijah Mueller, Kylie Ossege and Aiden Watson, according to the Oakland County Prosecutor's Office. The named students couldn't be matched with the conditions of anonymous victims listed by the Sheriff's Office. A 17-year-old girl with a gunshot wound to the neck who is in stable condition at McLaren Oakland Hospital in Pontiac, a 17-year-old girl with a gunshot wound to her chest who remains in critical condition at St. Joseph Mercy Oakland in Pontiac, and a 14-year-old girl that has improved from critical condition to stable and is off of a ventilator at Hurley Medical Center in Flint after suffering chest and neck gunshot wounds. At the time of writing, three students have been discharged from the hospital.
Ethan being loaded into a police vehicle: American police training at its finest: Note from the Oakland County Office of the Sheriff: Searches were carried out on the residence revealing “two separate videos recovered from Ethan’s cellphone made by him the night before the incident, wherein he talked about shooting and killing students the next day at Oxford High School.” as well as a journal “detailing his desire to shoot up the school, to include murdering students.” Police removed multiple long barreled guns from the residence during the searches.
Police removing firearms from the Crumbley residence: After Ethan was identified as the shooter in the day following the shooting, his family was immediately doxed, and thousands of people went to Facebook to harass his father. I cannot understate this enough, Facebook needs to die. The company needs to be broken up and the platform to be shut down for the safety and security of the human species. I don't know what it is about Facebook that compels people to utter threats and fantasize about the gay prison rape of a 15 year old school shooter, especially considering that Facebook is absolutely the least private, most easily personally identifiable place on the fucking internet.
The invention of social media and its consequences have been an absolute disaster for the human race.
Americans politicize a shooting, call for violence against a family, and fantasize about the gay prison rape of a minor: Uploads to the Youtube channel of James Crumbley show Ethan living an average life of a child, though a bit awkward at times. A 9 minute video depicts Ethan and other young children playing basketball, in which Ethan misses all but one shot, and is hopelessly bested at basketball by children that look years younger than he does. He awkwardly shoves the other children around at times. Ethan absolutely does not assist his "team mate" in any way during this 9 minute video, instead constantly calling for the ball to be passed to him.
School shooter sucks shit at basketball: Other uploads show Ethan's house, which is by no means a hoarder nest, but there is random shit and garbage all over the floors and stains all over the carpet. There's a "prank video" in which Ethan dumps cold water all over his father, who is chatting with others outside of the house. The video starts with an adult female asking if someone has found shot glasses. The video ends before anything really happens, but the father sounds quite upset, and not at all in a friendly way.
Ethan shows off his messy ass house: Ethan pisses his dad off: Videos posted to family Facebook pages also raise some questions:
Dad pretends to electrocute himself as a "prank" I just don't understand, how could have anyone possibly have seen this coming? There's obviously nothing that happened before this kid shot up his school. Obviously this was just a random act of impulse. There was clearly never any indicators that anything was wrong with the kid. How could the father have ever known that his child would commit a violent act like this, given easy access to a firearm?
He's just a troubled boy, with a kind heart, and a bright future. This sweet little angel didn't do anything wrong.
I am a proud supporter of our proud American Boys in Blue, and I have faith in the American public school system to properly care for mentally ill, emotionally disturbed, and socially isolated students.
