16 year old student

18 years ago a man walked into a school in Dunblane, Scotland with four handguns and killed 16 students all under 6 years old, a teacher and then himself.

This led to a debate on gun control and in 1997 2 firearms amendment acts were passed making it illegal to own a handgun for personal use in the United Kingdom.  We have had no shooting on a similar scale to this since.

6 weeks later in Australia was the massacre in Port Arthur when 35 people were killed and 23 wounded, which led to the imposing strict gun control. There have been no shootings on a similar scale to this since, either.

If I hear one more person tell me that there’s nothing that can be done in the US when there are massacres after massacre I will scream because it is so clear and people are pretending to be blind.

People Keep Asking This Teen Named Sadaf If She’s “Sad AF” And She’s Done AF

Sadaf is a 16-year-old high school student from Massachusetts. She told BuzzFeed News her parents are originally from Afghanistan, and her name is a pretty common first name in South Asia and parts of the Middle East.

“Usually, I get roughly around two or three DMs a day about my name,” Sadaf said, sending BuzzFeed News an exhausting collection of screenshots from her inbox.

16-year-old Esmie Tseng was an honour student from Overland Park, Kansas. She kept a blog which mostly mirrored any other average teenager. She was sarcastic and she loved music. However, in these postings, she gave a darker insight into her home life. She revealed that her Chinese immigrant parents, Shu Yi Zhang and Tao Tseng, held her to impossibly high standards.

An avid and impressive piano player, they threatened to sell her piano if she didn’t win a competition. They grounded her for scoring only 96% in a test. They threatened to move state because she got a few B’s in a report card that was otherwise filled with A’s. They forced her to stand naked in the corner when she disappointed them. In fact, they often blamed Esmie for their own problems. On one occasion, Esmie’s mother was fired and blamed Esmie, saying it was her fault she couldn’t retire. Her mother even left notes on her computer in which she would say she was ashamed of Esmie and that she was lazy and a disappointment. If somebody ever complimented Esmie on the plethora of maths medals she has accumulated, Shi and Tao would correct them and say that it was nothing to be proud of and that she wasn’t intelligent.

On the 19th of August, 2005, Esmie finally snapped. In their home in a quiet Blue Valley neighbourhood, Esmie stabbed her mother to death. It was a brutal murder, with the incident spanning through several of the rooms in the home. She pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and was sentenced to eight years in prison. In 2012, Esmie was paroled and went on to work with the Missourians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty.

Maryland’s high school athletes can now wear their hijabs during sports tournaments

  • Under the new policy, high school athletes are allowed to wear their religious head coverings as long as it’s not “abrasive, hard or dangerous to any player/others.” The former policy required students to provide “documented evidence” to wear religious garments during sport tournaments.

List of Unanswered Questions.

This show is famous for leaving fans with many unanswered questions so we thought we’d keep a list and update it regularly before the show ends. 

1. Who is Uber A/AD?

Alex Drake.

2. What is their motive?

Alex’s motive was find out who killed her half-sister, Charlotte. Whilst playing the game to find out who killed Charlotte, Alex became jealous of the life Spencer had. She saw how happy Spencer was and how her friends would do anything for her. Her jealousy led to her threats escalating in order to break up the girls.

The threats only made the girls closer, so, Alex came up with a new plan. She decided that because she couldn’t break them up, she could just become Spencer. She slowly started insinuating herself into Spencer’s life (see a list of the scenes where Alex pretended to be Spencer here). 

3. Who killed Charlotte?

Mona Vanderwaal.

4. Why was Charlotte killed?

Because Mona saw through Charlotte, she knew that over the five years Charlotte never got better. It was her plan to pretend to get better, get released and start playing the game again. Mona planned on scaring Charlotte so she couldn’t start playing the game again.

But, it was an accident. The two got into a physical fight and Mona threw Charlotte onto a steel pipe which accidentally killed her.

5. Who killed Jessica?

Mary Drake.

6. Why was Jessica killed?

Because of the lies and the way she treated her twin sister, Mary Drake. Jessica had taken Mary’s child from her, and when Mary pretended to be Jessica and was impregnated by Peter Hastings, Jessica organised for Mary to be sent to Radley Sanitarium, once again. 

To top everything off, Mary found out that Jessica lied when she told her that her son Charles had died at age 16, when really Charles transitioned into Charlotte DiLaurentis/Cece Drake. 

Peter and Jessica were also secretly working together, setting out on a plan to use Peter’s pills to kill Mary. This plan had backfired, with Mary learning of their plan. She intercepted, giving Jessica the pills which stopped her heart.

7. Who is the “he” the girls are running from in the 610 flash forward?

Archer Dunhill. Emily has a nightmare in 719 that plays out the flash forward scene, in which the “he” they are referring to is Archer who comes back from the dead to come after Ali. 

8. Who killed Sara?

Noel Kahn (not stated specifically in the show).

9. Why was Sara killed?

Because she was suspicious of Noel and his motives after being asked to help him go on a “treasure hunt” to help find Charlotte’s money. Noel planned on killing Sara and Jenna at the end of the hunt so he could have all the money to himself, but he killed Sara earlier then planned to help prevent the possibility of her telling everyone about what she knows. 

10. Who shot Spencer?

Alex Drake, her twin sister. 

11. Why was Noel helping with the dollhouse?

Noel had secrets and Charlotte had used them against Noel as blackmail to help with the dollhouse. 

12. What is Sara’s motive for helping Charlotte?

Money. 

13. What really happened to Sara Harvey the night she “ran away” from home and what is Sara’s overall involvement with Charlotte? 

This was never really answered but it is most likely that she just ran away because of the life she was living and the way she treated her friends. She was exactly like Alison DiLaurentis. 

Sara and Charlotte meet after she starts playing the A game and Charlotte uses her as a decoy on the night of the Lodge Fire. Sara is also sent to Wilden’s funeral as the Black Widow to ensure that he is dead so he can no longer hurt Ali. Sara and Charlotte share some sort of bond, as Sara described they almost felt like sisters. This was most likely Charlotte using Sara as an Ali replacement. 

14. Who killed Garrett Reynolds?

Darren Wilden did. He killed Garrett because he found out about Wilden being a dirty cop and was going to expose him. 

15. Who killed Darren Wilden?

Charlotte did. He found out Ali was alive and wasn’t going to let her come home to tell her story. Charlotte killed him so that Ali could come home. 

16. What is Wren Kingston's involvement? 

He and Charlotte were friends whilst she was a patient in Radley. He was also in charge of helping Charlotte and Mona get in and out of Radley while they were playing the A game. 

Wren also helped his girlfriend, Alex Drake, meet with her long lost sister Charlotte in London. The three all become close friends along with Archer. 

17. Why was Wren colouring in a Red Coat?

18. Why did Wren give Cece a visitors pass to visit Mona in Radley when she was already a patient?

This was some sort of cover up in case the girls came close to figuring out that Cece Drake was actually a Radley patient by the name of Charlotte DiLaurentis. 

19. Is Wren really a Doctor?

Yes. 

20. How many children does Mary Drake have?

Two: Spencer Hastings and Charlotte DiLaurentis. 

21. Who is Spencer’s biological father?

Spencer’s biological father is Peter Hastings, who slept with Mary Drake thinking that she was her twin sister, Jessica DiLaurentis.

22. Who is Charlotte’s biological father?

Pastor Ted Wilson. 

23. Why was Mary Drake in Radley?

Mary was admitted into Radley on several occasions throughout her life. The first time was because she switched places with her sister to help babysit Teddy Carver, and when his parents arrived home, they found Teddy dead. Jessica was most likely responsible for this, but Mary was babysitting and was given the punishment of being sent to Radley.

The second time was due to Mary pretending to be Jessica so that she could get with Peter Hastings. After this, Jessica signs the papers for Mary’s readmission into Radley Sanitarium. 

24. Why did Jenna and Sara work together?

They were working together to find Charlotte’s killer, and according to Jenna they were working with Noel to find money that Charlotte had left for them. 

25. Why was Rollins making Ali fall for him even before Charlotte was killed?

He needed to win her over so that she would believe his treatment was helping Charlotte get better, which would ultimately lead to her release from Welby. Charlotte even said herself, “Archie needs to win her trust. Convince her that I’m doing better.” “Alison is the only chance I have of getting out of here.” 

26. When and how did Charlotte and Archer Dunhill (Rollins) meet? 

They met on a flight to Paris (after Ali had given her the Vivian Darkbloom passport to leave the country as she was about to go down for murder). 

27. Are Uber A and Amoji the same person?

Yes. They were both Alex Drake. 

28. Are Toby and Yvonne really dead?

Toby survived but Yvonne sadly didn’t.

29. How was Eddie Lamb connected to the plot and what happened to him?

He was a good nurse at Radley who’s main role was to warn Spencer that Wren was doing some shady activity with Visitors Passes and was helping inmates escape Radley when they wanted to. 

30. What is Bethany Young’s entire involvement in the overall storyline?

31. How did no one know about Mary Drake?

“Many families have secrets. Sometimes those secrets are actual people.”

She spent a lot of time in Radley Sanitarium and possibly impersonating her sister, Jessica DiLaurentis.

32. Mary Drake said she got a call from Rollins after Charlotte was killed which made her come back to avenge her daughter. Why did she lie, as we know she landed in Philly a week before Charlotte was killed? 

33. Who is Beach Hottie?

Detective Darren Wilden. 

34. Who gave Ali the bloody lip in Veronica Hasting’s flashback?

This wasn’t answered in the show but rather in an interview with Marlene on an ET Live chat. She said it was someone from the older group of college kids Ali was hanging around with.

35. Was Charlotte really in charge or was their someone higher calling all the shots?

Charlotte was in charge of the A game the entire time. 

36. Why did Jessica have a lair devoted to finding out if Ali was alive when she was the one who buried her that night?

We think we may have solved this one ourselves! We posted here about Charlotte finding out Ali was alive in 3x24 and then telling Jessica about it in order to redeem herself. Jessica then returned to Rosewood in 4x01 and set up a secret lair at Aunt Carol’s to try and track Ali to bring her home. She even got Ali’s bedroom set up for her ready for her return!

37. Why was Aria’s file taken from Jessica’s lair?

To blackmail Aria to turn on her friends and join the A team.

38. What was in Aria’s folder?

A report that she had written about Ezra, in which she basically called him out on being a sexual predator and taking advantage of a 16 year old high school student. 

39. What did Maya know? (Miss Aria You’re A Killer Not Ezra’s Wife)

Maya knew that her stalker from True North; Lyndon James, was in Rosewood.

40. Who hit Ali that night?

Charlotte, thinking she was Bethany. 

41. Who killed Bethany?

Mona Vanderwaal hit Bethany thinking she was Ali and left her there. Melissa Hastings then found Bethany’s body, and thinking that Spencer had hit her with the shovel, she buried Bethany in order to “protect” her sister.

The autopsy had shown that Bethany’s cause of death was from suffocation due to dirt being found in her lungs. 

42. Why was Mrs. D taking Bethany to the horse stables, and why did she give her a pony (Custard)? 

Because she was having an affair with Bethany’s father, so by giving her things, she thought this would hide the affair. 

43. Why did Eddie Lamb recognise Aria when he saw her at Radley?

Because he had seen her visiting Spencer when she was in Radley in S3.

44. Who was the mysterious fourth person who showed up at Jenna, Mona and Sydney’s meeting in 5x05?

Most likely Lucas, as they were all meeting up to plan the distraction on the other girls so Mona could get to Ali at the church. (Jenna distracted Aria, Sydney distracted Emily and Lucas distracted Hanna that night).

It could have also been Melissa, as she could have been the person who distracted Spencer. 

45. Who pulled the girls out of the Thornhill Lodge Fire?

Sara Harvey.

46. Who saved Hanna from the fire?

Alison.

47. Who were the Queen of Hearts?

Melissa and Darren Wilden.  

48. Why was Jessica in Spencer’s room in 4x22?

That was actually Mary Drake. She wanted to see her daughter.

49. Why did Bethany push Marion? 

Because she had intermittent explosive disorder. This caused her to have aggressive outbursts. During one of these impulsive episodes Bethany pushed Marion off the roof. 

50. Who was was the girl Melissa was talking to wearing the yellow top? Was this real or Jason’s imagination? 

This was most likely Jason’s imagination, as he was on drugs that night. 

51. Why did Mona look “dead” in the trunk at the end of 5x12?

Charlotte injected her with a “freezing serum” that made her appear dead. 

52. What is the relevance of the “ghost girl” who appeared in 3x13? 

We believe she was a representation of Mary Drake (read our post here

53. How did Alison’s friendship bracelet end up on Bethany?

Charlotte had the exact same clothing and accessories as Alison. Bethany stole Charlotte’s clothing the night she escaped and must have taken liking to the friendship bracelet so she decided to wear it as well. 

54. Who did Aria stab on the Halloween Train? 

Jason DiLaurentis (who was being blackmailed to push the crate of the train).

55. Who was the Queen of Hearts on the Halloween Train?

Melissa Hastings and Darren Wilden.  

56. What is the significance of September 7th? (the password to Charlotte’s lair at Carrisimi).

It is the day that Alison (Charlotte’s cousin) went missing. 

57. Marlene said we had seen the twin (Mary Drake) once before. When was this? 

We had seen Mary in 4x22; after Spencer had returned from rehab, Mary snuck into the Hastings house dressed as Jessica to catch a glimpse of her daughter. 

58. Who turned Cece into the police at the end of 4x23?

59. Who is Arcturus and the little “Hero” boy in Lucas’ and Charles comic book?

Arcturus is Charles and the little boy is Lucas. 

60. Who is the undisclosed buyer of Toby’s house?

Alex Drake. 

61. Who kidnapped and tortured Hanna?

Alex Drake, who was trying to find out if Hanna really knew who killed her sister.

62. Who is the father of Ali and Emily’s baby?

Wren Kingston.

63. Who is Board Shorts?

Ezra Fitz.

64. Why was Ali’s car at the Church the night Charlotte was killed?

I don’t think they’ll answer this in the show so I’m going to attempt to answer it. Charlotte ran off from the DiLaurentis house and probably stole Ali’s car and drove to the church to meet Mona. Ali probably borrowed Rollins car to go after Charlotte and when the two fought and Ali didn’t succeed at bringing Charlotte back home, she probably just returned home in Rollins car, leaving her car with Charlotte at the church.

65. What is Mona’s motive for being Original A?

After Aria returned from Iceland, she saw the possibility of the four girls reuniting and becoming a group again, which meant her only friend Hanna would leave her for her old friends. Mona used the girls secrets to try and turn the girls against each other. This backfired, only making the girls closer. 

66. Does Spencer have a twin? 

Yes, Alex Drake. 

67. What is Melissa’s overall involvement?

She has been protecting her sister since day one. 

68. Did Charlotte truly get better? 

Charlotte never truly got better. She pretended to get better over the five years with the help of Archer Dunhill at Welby. Her ultimate endgame was to be released and start up the game again.

69. How are Sydney and Jenna involved with Uber A?

70. How does all the Patsy Cline songs tie into the mystery? 

Charlotte grew up taking a liking to vintage things, Patsy Cline most likely being one of them. She also gave her sister, Alex, a Patsy record as her going away gift, something to remember her by because it was her favourite. 


We’ll continue to add to this list as we can think of questions to add, and as the show goes on. We’ll also add the answers to these questions once they are revealed.

Anne Marie Hochhalter, 17 in 1999.
Anne Marie was outside eating lunch on the grassy knoll with two friends when the shooting began. At first she thought it was a joke but when she saw students getting shot in the legs, she realized it was for real. She tried to run to the safety of the cafeteria and was shot by Eric Harris once in the back and once in the chest. Paralyzed by a bullet that damaged her spinal cord and diaphragm (it was later found lodged in her liver), she collapsed, unable to move. She told investigators later that while she was playing dead she could hear one of the gunmen shouting orders to the other but couldn’t understand what they were saying. If rescue workers had been as little as two minutes slower in reaching her, she would have died. As such doctors later called her the “miracle girl”. She was later moved to Craig Hospital for spinal cord rehabilitation. She spent four months in the hospital.

Her mother Carla, who’d been diagnosed with depression committed suicide 6 months later, on October 22, 1999. The reports say she went to a pawn shop, bought a gun, loaded it and killed herself on the spot. She was pronounced dead at the hospital. Her father Ted remarried a year later, marrying one of the grief counselors he and Anne met.

Her 16 year old brother Nathan was also a student at Columbine. While the shooting occured, Nathan was trapped in a science room. Anne Marie underwent therapy at Craig Hospital with Patrick Ireland and resumed school Sept. 9 1999, taking one Physics class with him. Her family bought a house with wheelchair ramps and lifts with the help of Colorado Homebuilders Foundation. At age 18, she was attending Columbine part time and helped out in the nurse’s office in addition to taking classes. She wanted to go on to community college once she graduated but had planned to take the summer of 2000 off to “be a teen” since she’d lost that time the previous summer.

Anne Marie Hochhalter made a facebook status on febuary 11 2016, where she wrote;

Dear Sue Klebold, I was injured at Columbine High School in 1999. As you know, your son Dylan, and his classmate, Eric Harris, killed 13 people and then themselves. You are releasing a book called, “A Mother’s Reckoning”, and are appearing tomorrow on the TV program 20/20 to talk about what happened and what your son did. I have only two instances to form an opinion on you and they are as follows:
1. You and your husband wrote me a letter a few months after I was paralyzed saying how sorry you were. It was genuine and personal. The Harris letter, on the other hand, was four sentences long on a folded up piece of paper, and was cold and robotic. To refresh your memory, your letter read like this:
“Dear Anne Marie,
Our prayers have been with you each day as we read about the terrible ordeal you and your family have experienced. We read that you had been transferred to Craig Hospital, and we were so thankful that you had progressed to the point where you could enter a rehabilitation facility. Though we have never met, our lives are forever linked through this tragedy that has brought unspeakable heartbreak to our families and our community. With deepest humility we apologize for the role our son, Dylan, had in causing the suffering you and your family have endured. Your recovery process will be a long and difficult road, and we hope that the support of people all over the world will help you find strength and courage as you meet the many challenges you have yet to face. When we read reports of your progress, we marvel at your resolve. It is still terribly difficult for us to believe that the son we knew could play a role in causing harm to you and others. The reality that he shared in the responsibility for this senseless tragedy is beyond our comprehension. We offer our love, support, and service as you and your family work to gain control over your lives. May God watch over you during your recovery process and beyond. May each day bring you successes, however small, that bring you hope and encouragement.
Sincerely,
Sue and Tom Klebold.
2. I was contacted by ABC to comment for the 20/20 special and they told me that any proceeds from your book (aside from publisher’s costs) will go to helping those with mental illness. Six months after Columbine happened, my mother, Carla, committed suicide. She was already suffering from depression so the shootings didn’t directly cause her to do what she did, but it certainly didn’t help. It means a lot to me that you wouldn’t keep those proceeds for yourself, but to help others that suffer from mental illness.
I think it’s appropriate that the program that you are appearing on is named “20/20”. Hindsight is truly 20/20 and I’m sure you have agonized over what you could have done differently. I know, because I do the same thing with trying to think of ways I could have prevented my mother’s death. I have no ill-will towards you. Just as I wouldn’t want to be judged by the sins of my family members, I hold you in that same regard. It’s been a rough road for me, with many medical issues because of my spinal cord injury and intense nerve pain, but I choose not to be bitter towards you. A good friend once told me, “Bitterness is like swallowing a poison pill and expecting the other person to die.” It only harms yourself. I have forgiven you and only wish you the best.
Sincerely,
Anne Marie Hochhalter.

Columbine’s Legacy. 

On April 9th, 2014, 16 year old student, Alex Hribal, committed a mass stabbing at Franklin Regional High School. Hribal attacked 20 students and 1 security guard, leaving them all injured. In a letter he writes three days before the attack, he talks about the planned stabbing. He says his attack was inspired by Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. He continues to write about his admiration for them and refers to them as “gods.” After apprehended by police, he tells a psychologist his original plan was to commit the attack on April 20th, which would’ve been the 15th anniversary of the Columbine tragedy. Since school was cancelled that day, he changed the date to April 9th, Eric Harris’ birthday. Hribal is now in prison, facing 21 counts of attempted homicide and 21 counts of aggravated assault.

It’s the first thought that crosses Derek’s mind as he watches the new inmates spill into the cafeteria. The kid stays close to the wall, eyes scanning all the exits and skimming over the tables. If he’s trying to get a barring for his surroundings he’s doing a shit job of it, something made completely evident as Lewis shoulders him from behind and the kid almost jumps to flatten himself against the wall.

Stiles is the new inmate at Derek’s prison. He really didn’t expect to fall in love with the mouthy little brat.

So this was finally it. He was being escorted by an armed guard through a pair of double doors and into actual prison. Where he would be sharing living quarters with convicted killers, probably. Stiles may have been a bit of a badass in his own right, but he was still just a 16 year old kid, he used to be an honor student for fuck’s sake, how was he supposed to deal with this?

Stiles is sent to prison, and gets assigned to a cell with-

“Hale?!” Scott gasped as his gaze followed Stiles’s. “You got Derek Hale?! Oh boy, man, good luck with that buddy, that guy is a psycho!” His voice had become worryingly high pitched. Stiles’s heart started thumping in his chest, and he swore it actually skipped a beat when Hale looked up at them, his eyes searing into Stiles’s who quickly dropped his head. His beef (or was it pork?) slop suddenly looked very interesting.

Injured || Peter Parker x Reader [[request]]

[[request prompt: We see a lot of Spiderman coming to S/O for help when injured. What if the S/O is friends with Peter but rivals when being a hero to SM, so, when she’s injured, she goes to him (not intentionally; he wakes up at the sound of a thud and groans)👌]]

A part of you was grateful that Spider-Man wasn’t here to witness your ‘jumping off a building and missing the target’ mishap- yet another part of you admitted to really needing his help right now.

Meet the 16-year-old Canadian girl who took down Milo Yiannopoulos
This is the real story of how the video that took down Milo surfaced.
By German Lopez

[I]t started when a 16-year-old high school student in Canada decided Yiannopoulos was embraced much too closely by mainstream conservatives.

The teen was moved to dig up footage on Yiannopoulos when she heard that he’d been invited to speak at the highest profile gathering of conservatives each year in America, the 2017 Conservative [sic] Political Action Conference (CPAC). She defines herself as “very socially liberal,” but leans right on economics and foreign policy. Yiannopoulos, who has built his personal brand on anti-Muslim, anti-feminism, and general bigotry, exemplifies the place where she doesn’t believe the conservative movement should go….

[A]n old moment popped in her head. She remembered hearing an obscure podcast, the Drunken Peasants, in which Yiannopoulos, responding to a video by YouTube pundit Kevin Logan, defended the idea of “13-year-olds” having sex with “older men,” arguing that child molestation provided a “sort of ‘coming of age’ relationship” for teenagers.

Her memory was right. She found the July 2016 clip.

She didn’t think she’d have much luck spreading the news herself with her small Twitter following, so she contacted a [right-wing] outlet to get the story out. She figured a liberal outlet would have less credibility among CPAC followers.

She landed on the previously not-very-well-known [right-wing] blog Reagan Battalion, which, after a bit of back and forth, tweeted out the video — leading not just to CPAC canceling Yiannopoulos’s speech, but to Simon & Schuster pulling his already controversial book deal and his resignation from Breitbart.

You had worked at the little restaurant for almost a year, knowing Taehyung from the first day you started your job as he trained you.
