Columbine Copycat and YouTube Videos

October 11, 2007


According to CNN, the Pennsylvania teenager arrested last night for plotting a Columbine-style attack on Plymouth-Whitemarsh High School in Plymouth Meeting, PA had started the “Imperial Cobra Army,” in which he fantasized that he could recruit children as young as 10 to commit violent acts. In a search for the ICA on the Internet, we found disturbing and graphic videos at YouTube posted by “Shadow19462.” It so happens that 19462 is the zip code for Plymouth Meeting. Creepy, huh? Is “Shadow” the Pennsylvania teenager’s alter ego? The name given is Dillon, age 19; this refers to Dylan Klebold, one of the Columbine killers. “Shadow” was last online yesterday. The image seen here, which is “Shadow”s avatar at YouTube, is really a picture of Eric Harris wearing a t-shirt that said “Natural Selection,” on the day of the Columbine massacre.

We’re not sure how long the ICA video, added on 2 May 2007 at YouTube, will stay up, but here it is, with a message from “Shadow” saying: “this is a wake up call to the world…this is a wake up call to the world, join the I.C.A. (Imperial Cobra Army) , and take back what is rightfully ours HAIL TO THE IMPERIAL EMPIRE!!!!” “Shadow” who needs a spelling tutor in addition to a shrink, has 27 subscribers.

A 13 April 2007 video by Shadow is described as “my 1st tribute to Eric David Harris (…my 1st tribute to Eric David Harris (Reb) and Dylan Bennet Klebold (VoDKa) enjoy…” Warning, this one is graphic but shown because there is a subculture of alienated teenagers who find Columbine fascinating and who view Harris and Klebold as role models. For example, Seung-Hui Cho, who killed 32 people at Virginia Tech on 16 April 16 2007 in the deadliest school shooting in America, called Klebold and Harris “heroes.” Home-grown terrorism. Pajamadeen is not sure what to say about that, except parents, have the guts to parent. Know your child.
