Alleged Sandy Hook Copycat

Threatens to Target L.A.

Kindergarteners for Death

1/8/2013 5:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The 24-year-old man who threatened to commit Sandy Hook type crimes in L.A. claimed he was hell-bent on leaving "dead kindergartners" in his wake ... yet he will not be prosecuted.

Kyle Bangayan posted threats on Facebook the same day as the Newtown shooting ... and claimed he was targeting L.A. schools ... this according to a search warrant obtained by TMZ.

Kyle allegedly wrote, "No really America, if you post one more Facebook post about the shooting at that elementary school, I swear to whatever f**king god you believe in that I will do the same goddamn thing."

The rant continues, "I have the guns, I have the incentive, and I won't commit suicide at the end, I'll just go to the next f**king school and the next and the next ..."

And he goes on ... "So I woke up this morning and said to myself ... Dang you know [what] would be really awesome right now ... some dead kindergarteners ... and Christmas early."

Kyle was arrested in L.A. after a tipster told the LAPD about the online threats -- and when cops searched his bedroom (at his parents house) they found six semi-auto handguns, two rifles and one shotgun.

Now for the kicker.  Kyle was released and the L.A. County D.A. said no charges would be filed, because the threats were not specific. 

A little unsettling .... don't you think?

It is widely reported that the mayor of L A is a crackpot, at least as reported here on TMZ. I think that the leaders are just trying to make everyone turn on and mistrust each other, so that they won't realize that the government is falling apart and turning evil. If people give up their guns, a corrupt government can take over.

Now I don't know if people would be willing to fight back agaisnst a foreign or domestic act of war against the USA with their own guns, but that is the idea of allowing people the right to bear arms.

Does anyone actually love America any more, not for what it has or what it can do, but for what it stands for? I think people basically hate it any more and for all the wrong reasons. They have no faith in the constitution or the principles it was founded under. They think it is about dominance and money. That was what the third reick was about, which has taken over this country. The first thing that Hitler did was disarm his people. Forget gun registration, he even had them register bicycles and radios. Anything could be taken away at a moment's notice.

Now all of these registered guns, what purpose are they serving? They just show where all of the gun owners live so that the guns can be consfiscated again. If no one knows where all of the guns are, they will be more scared to just bust in people's homes and round them up for concentration camps, aka FEMA camps.

I hear LA has some of most no nonsense guys around. One of them needs to go pay this dude a visit at his house and let him have it, before he goes to the schools. TAKE A STAND

Honestly, does this skinny little guy with a doll look like a killer to you? This could all be just another psy op. People don't just go randomly killing little kids at a school. This is an act of war by some power trying to take over the country.

Why do we allow this to happen in this country? We use to be a strong country, and this kind of thing would not be tolerated for one second. In some countries the threats that this guy made would cost him his life. Thought we were the big strong country. Apparently we are not. No wonder this country is a joke to so many other countries. We allow illegal actions to be played out day after day after day. So pathetic.

This is all brainwashing. They want you to think that little adolescent boys still clutching their ninja toys are out to mass murder schoolchildren. They want you to think little old ladies in their diapers at the airport are trying to smuggle in explosives like PLO suicide bombers. They want everyone to turn on each other and allow Americans to be treated like criminals, all in the name of peace and safety.

The TSA, or Touch Some Ass, likes to target the infirm, babies, good looking white women, etc. This is not saving lives but just dehumanizing Americans. It is like treating the airport herd like sheep instead of people.
