The Faces Of Currently Living School Shooters.

*Keep in mind, not all school shootings are the same.  There are different motives, and some of those pictured here killed 0.  Some of them are currently released, some were never sentenced.  There are many many more living school shooters, but their identities were never released to the public (this is a very common practice in countries outside of the United States), hence there are no photographs of them.  I have also included some individuals who PLANNED to shoot up their school, but were thwarted in their attempts.*

“I don’t like Mondays. This livens up the day.”

- 16-year-old Brenda Spencer’s answer as to why she shot up an elementary school in 1979.

Spencer, who is one of only three female school shooters, used a .22 calibre semi-automatic rifle to shoot 11 people. Eight children and a police officer were severely injured, while the principal and a custodian were killed. After the shooting, she locked herself in her house and telephoned a journalist whom interviewed her over the phone. He then passed the call onto police negotiators, who she told “I’ll come out shooting!” After a few hours, Spencer ended up surrendering. 

Tried as an adult, Spencer pleaded guilty to two counts of murder and assault with a deadly weapon. She remains incarcerated.

Brenda Ann Spencer and the Cleveland Elementary School Shooting :

On 29/01/1979 sixteen year old Brenda Spencer shot the elementary school who was a street across her house. She injured eight childrend and a police officer and kills the principal and the custodian of the school.
When police asked her why she did this her answer was “I don’t like mondays” what inspired Bob Geldof to write his song “I don’t like mondays” who was playes by his band The Boomtown Rats. The song was relased later that year.

Tried as an adult, Spencer pleaded guilty to two counts of murder and assault with a deadly weapon, and was given an indefinite sentence.

38 years ago today, 16 year old Brenda Ann Spencer killed 2 and injured 9 at Cleveland Elementary School. She has been denied parole 4 times, and is next eligible to try in 2019, 40 years after the shooting
she is known for being the first school shooter in American history, and for her infamous quote “I don’t like Mondays. This livens up the day a little.”
The song I don’t like Mondays, by the Boomtown Rats, was written about Spencer

On Monday, January 29, 1979, 16-year-old Brenda Ann Spencer used a rifle to wound eight children and one police officer at Cleveland Elementary School in San Diego, and to kill Principal Burton Wragg and custodian Mike Suchar. The school was across the street from her house. She used the rifle she had recently been given for Christmas by her father. When the six-hour incident ended and the pretty teenager was asked why she had committed the crime, she shrugged and replied, “I don’t like Mondays. This livens up the day.” She also said: “I had no reason for it, and it was just a lot of fun.” “It was just like shooting ducks in a pond.” and “[The children] looked like a herd of cows standing around; it was really easy pickings.” Her lack of remorse and inability to provide a serious explanation for her actions when captured inspired the song “I Don’t Like Mondays” by The Boomtown Rats, written by socialist musician Bob Geldof. Her quote “I don’t like Mondays” also appears written on a wall in the movie, The Breakfast Club.
