DECEMBER 12, 1997 :

 A YOUNG MURDERER IS INDICTED

Fourteen-year-old Michael Carneal is indicted as an adult on three counts of murder and five counts of attempted murder for the shooting of his classmates at Heath High School in West Paducah, Kentucky. On December 1, Carneal pulled out a pistol and fired 11 shots into a group of students in the school’s lobby.

By all accounts, Michael Carneal was a normal teenager from a solid family. He was neither exceptionally popular nor a social outcast. On December 1, when his older sister, Kelly, drove him to school, he reportedly claimed that the blanketed bundle on his lap was a prop for a school project; in fact, it contained two rifles and two shotguns. In addition, Carneal was carrying a .22-caliber pistol. The guns had all been stolen from a neighbor’s garage several weeks earlier.

When he arrived at school, Carneal walked toward a before-school prayer meeting that was just breaking up, inserted earplugs into his ears, loaded the .22, and then methodically shot eight students from a distance of 10 feet. Amid the barrage, fellow student Ben Strong convinced Carneal to drop his weapon and held him down until the school’s principal took the gunman away.

When asked what motivated his killing rampage, Carneal only cried and asked authorities to kill him. Later, he claimed that he was inspired by the movie The Basketball Diaries, starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Families of the victims filed a $130 million lawsuit against 21 entertainment companies for their alleged role in the tragedy. Among those sued were the makers of the video games Quake and Doom. According to the litigants, Carneal had learned how to shoot accurately from playing these games.

Although charged as an adult, Carneal’s young age made him ineligible for the death penalty. He pleaded guilty but mentally ill, and he was sentenced to life in prison with a possibility of parole in 25 years.

The Paducah community was remarkably kind to Carneal’s family in the wake of the tragedy, offering them condolences and welcoming Kelly back to school after the incident.

The Bill of Rights originally consisted of 12 amendments, but only ten were passed.

If a foreign-born female gives birth on an airplane in U.S. airspace, or on a ship within 12 nautical miles of the U.S. coast, her child automatically becomes a U.S. citizen.

Recently a routine police patrol was parked outside a bar in the Outback. 
After last call,  the officer noticed a man leaving the bar so apparently intoxicated that he could barely walk.  The man stumbled around the parking lot for a few minutes,  with the officer quietly observing. After what seemed an eternity,  in which he tried his keys on five different vehicles,  the man managed to find his car and fall into it. He sat there for a few minutes as a number of other patrons left the bar and drove off. Finally he started the car,  switched the wipers on and off;   it was a fine,  dry summer night,  flicked the blinkers on and off a couple of times,  honked the horn and then switched on the lights. He moved the vehicle forward a few inches,  reversed a little,  and then remained still for a few more minutes as some more of the other patrons' vehicles left.    At last,  when his was the only car left in the parking lot,  he pulled out and drove slowly down the road.  The police officer,  having waited patiently all this time,  now started up his patrol car,  put on the flashing lights,  and promptly pulled the man over and administered a breathalyzer test.  To his amazement,  the breathalyzer indicated no evidence that the man had consumed any alcohol at all!  
 Dumbfounded,  the officer said,   "I'll have to ask you to accompany me to the police station.   This breathalyser equipment must be broken."
"I doubt it,"  said the truly proud Redneck.  "Tonight I'm the designated decoy."
