Video: Fla. Teen Outlines School Massacre Plot In Videos

VIDEO: Fla. Teen Planned School Massacre

Prosecutors recently released a cell phone video that shows a former Freedom High School student detailing his elaborate plot to blow up the school.

Last year when police searched the home of then-17-year-old Jared Cano, who was expelled from the school in March 2010, they found a manifesto that detailed his plans for an attack in August 2011 on the first day of school. Additionally, authorities discovered bomb-making material.

In the video footage, Cano outlines his plans to detonate bombs throughout Freedom High School, according to WTSP. He also mentioned that after the bombs went off, he would retrieve a stash of weapons hidden near the school and kill as many students as possible, as well as two teachers that Cano says wronged him.

Cano, who has pled no contest to charges of intending to harm others with a destructive device, will be sentenced on Dec. 5.

This guy is one scary dude--and what's even scarier is (according to the news guy) that a judge could almost immediately unleash him on society in a matter of weeks for "time served." Oh yeah, this kid is SERIOUS. Did you catch it when he calmly mentioned he wouldn't kill one guy in the office because he "liked" him? Remember this kid, because if/when he gets out, he'll try again--unless he's given a lobotomy!

This kid has been out of school (expelled) for over a year! And how does this little injustice collector spend his time? Studying for his GED test? Volunteering at a local shelter? Being a greeter at Walmart? No, he walks around all day with a black cloud over his head and broods about murdering innocent kids and teachers and administrators just doing their job. TucsonJohn's got it right: put this character out of his self-imposed misery.
