Few details are coming out to possibly indicate why 18-year-old Karl Pierson walked into Centennial, Colo.'s Arapahoe High School with a shotgun, ammunition, a machete, Molotov cocktails, and an intent to kill — but one of his friends has an idea.

Joe Redmond, who had been friends with Pierson for three years, said the teen had an ongoing feud with the school's debate coach, Tracy Murphy, that had escalated.

"Karl had threatened to kill Mr. Murphy," Redmond told The Denver Post.

But Redmond was not clear why.

18, spoiled and an opinionated socialist/leftist (we would sure have heard about his political beliefs is he were conservative or belonged to the NRA). Sure sounds like quite a few other of the various shooters nowadays. He did light and throw one molotov cocktail in the library...the Brit papers seemed to be willing to give more information than our rags. Machete and Molotov cocktails...sounds like he fit into his political belief group nicely.

Why?

Because it is what Socialism *Ultimately* leads to.
