14-Year-Old MARILYN MANSON Fan Shoots Four, Kills Self At Cleveland High School

The Associated Press reports that a 14-year-old suspended student, wearing a black MARILYN MANSON concert shirt, black jeans and black-painted finger nails, opened fire in his downtown high school Wednesday, wounding four people as terrified schoolmates hid in closets and bathrooms and huddled under laboratory desks. He then killed himself.

A fellow student at SuccessTech Academy alternative school said Asa H. Coon, who was suspended for fighting two days earlier, had made threats in front of students and teachers last week.

"He's crazy. He threatened to blow up our school. He threatened to stab everybody," Doneisha LeVert said. "We didn't think nothing of it."

Coon was armed with two .38 caliber revolvers, and police found a duffel bag stocked with ammunition and three knives in a bathroom, officials said. Parents were angry that firearms got into a school equipped with metal detectors that students said were intermittently used.

Officials said two teachers and two students were shot, and that a 14-year-old girl fell and hurt her knee while running out of the school.

How is Manson responsible for all this crap anyways? First Columbine and now this......what does UG think of this trick the media has of attacking artists whenever they try to avoid the real issues which are family problems, drug problems etc(IMO of course)?

so why is the fact he's a marilyn manson fan important.

lots of non-screwed up people like marilyn manson. i liek marilyn manson, but i would never kill a person.

people need to grow up and accept maybe it's

A. the parent's fault

B. the kid was just a nutjob

I think the media focusses on stuff like videogames and music, because it doesn't want to tell people they're **** parents and thier children are morons. If i kid kills himself due to games, drugs, music then good it means we lost a moron.

It's a press selling trick. By making it look like Manson is to blame, it looks more shocking and the story is even more shocking (i.e. more overprotective parents will want to read on, and thus buy the paper).

Honestly, they ought to realize that it's impossible to tell what's the cause and what's the reaction. They mean that the music caused the lifestyle, but anyone who has a properly working brain will be able to understand that the lifestyle causes the music. I.e. the guy didn't turn into a killer because he listened to Marilyn Manson, but people in that kind of mindset often listen to that kind of music, and even if the music was removed from society, the mindset would keep on living.

ugh, just the media magnifying something unimportant (manson), to make the big picture seem worse.

I doubt its Manson's fault, unless he puts "Kill everyone at your school" in his songs. There is obviously something wrong in the kids mind that made him do this horrible thing.


Manson should NOT be blamed for this, or for Columbine

A have a friend who wears AC-DC shorts sometimes though he hates the band, so what a person wears is irrevelant. That sucks that he did that, though.

Anybody know what happened with the kid who beat up the hobo and blamed it on GTA? His mom said he was blaming video games for the lulz because he'd never played video games.

Why do they bother mentioning he's a manson fan? I love Manson's music and art, doesn't mean I'd go kill kids at my school.


It's just so much easier to blame media than it is to blame yourselves.

Ancient people didn't need movies, video games or violent music to go kill each other.

What if he was wearing a shirt with his high school on it?

Would the press blame the high school?

I don't know, but all this is just stupid selling crap

Its obviously not the music or video game industries fault for this incident.

It is the fault of the schools who do not take threats seriously. This kid was mentally unstable, and obviously needed some help, and he wasn't given it.

It didn't seem like the article was blaming Manson; it just mentioned the shooter was wearing a Manson shirt, no big deal, just simple journalism; establishing an image.

That being said, I agree Manson will feel some more backlash, nothing new to him. I don't think it's unreasonable to say that it's more likely disturbed and disenchanted people will listen to aggressive, angry music; it IS unreasonable, however, to say that listening to aggressive, angry music makes you disturbed and disenchanted.

still, they just had to make sure everyone knew he was wearing a manson shirt. because of course that had something to do with him shooting at people.

It is tragic, but you shouldn't feel bad. I find it hilarious but appalling that they would even mention that along with 2 teachers and 2 students being shot.

That is retarded. If i could ask a question to the press it would be "did Manson kill people, shot kids or had any part in this? if so, how?" I bet there would be no answer

Manson doesn't turn people crazy, crazy people like manson. Thats like saying because most older people like older music, its the music making them old. Well, now im gonna listen to Dream Theater and become awesome at guitar.

There was something at my school last year, where a kid threatened to blow up the school. The school kicked him out and he got mental help.


I doubt it was just a skinned knee. She probably twisted it, and broke it. Or something like that

"We didn't think nothing of it." (double negative)

Asa H. Coon (weird name)

Doneisha LeVert (weird name)

SuccessTech Academy alternative school (alternative school eh)

a school equipped with metal detectors that students said were intermittently used (my school just has buzzers on the doors)

wearing a black MARILYN MANSON concert shirt, black jeans and black-painted finger nails (sounds like a homicidal goth kid with ****ty parents)

Doesn't sound like he was mentally stable in the first place. People who advertise their anti social behavior probably should be taken a little more seriously.
I felt like a monster reincarnation of Horatio Alger......a man on the move and just sick enough to be totally confident.

I find it funny when people say Manson didn't tell the kids to kill and hurt people, when Manson did indeed trick these kids to murder and rape and injure people. To think otherwise is just damn stupid and a complete contradictory to history. It's ignorant.

Talking, of course, about Charles Manson.
