I'm not sure if this has been posted yet. Only the initial incident threads show up in search. I wonder could this have been a copy-cat incident. This young man was obviously disturbed in some manner. I will withhold full judgment until more details come about. I am concerned with all of the reports that highlighted the 'military style assault rifle' from the very beginning. I'm not saying this was a false flag or anything. I actuallt think this incident is what it appears to be so far. But there is no doubt with the reporting that is going on that it is and will be used to further the anti-gun agenda here in the states.

I am deffinitely glad that he was unable to carry out his full intentions but it is sad what has happened irregaurdless. May the innocent victims of this rest in peace and may we all wish them peace in the afterlife.

The New Mexico teen accused of killing his parents and three siblings over the weekend is now reported to have been planning to continue his rampage at the local Walmart. He envisaged the massacre ending with a shootout with police and his own death.

Investigators are still trying to put together 15-year-old Nehemiah Griego's actions on Saturday night. They have discovered several guns, including an AR-15 assault rifle and a .22 caliber pistol, though no owner to match them, the Albuquerque Journal reports.

Griego was ready to drive to the superstore, with the loaded weapons already packed into his family's car.

The teen's plan was thwarted after he allegedly called a friend to tell him of his intention to go on a killing spree in Wal-Mart. The friend convinced him to meet at a local chapel, where he stayed for several hours, eventually admitting to a church guard that his family had been killed.

The guard took the boy home, calling police as soon as he laid eyes on the gruesome scene at Griego's house.

Griego was arrested and faces two charges of murder and three of child abuse resulting in death.

New Mexico authorities say that prior to the shooting, Griego had never had a run-in with the law.

What the bloody hell is going on? Why are people driven to go kill mass amounts of people, their own loved ones, irregardless of the weapons used. What drives a 15 year old boy to do this? What drives anyone to do this?

A mass shooting at a Walmart so soon after the Sandy Hook massacre would have neatly served the interests of the gun-grabbing freedom destroyers, so you definitely have to question whether this was the next covert op. How exactly does a 15yr old get an AR15? Very few details have been released as usual.

Here he is decked out in full military gear. i wonder if he was in one of those pre-recruitment military programs.

"Griego said he had been having homicidal and suicidal thoughts"

Translation: He was on SSRIs. Jeez Loueze when are people finally going to learn about these drugs????

The local news reported that his mother was asleep and he got a .22 rifle from a closet and shot her. Then he killed his brother and 2 sisters with the .22. He then got a AR15 from a closet and waited in a bathroom with it for his father to come home and killed him. The report doesn't say if the rifles were locked up or not.

I am one of the biggest supporters of the 2nd, especially when it comes to ar15's. But I have to say, What the hell kind of a father with little kids in the house doesn't have his guns in a safe, with a trigger lock and no extra keys etc laying around for something like this to happen? The dead father if these were his guns, he is just as at fault as the kid that picked them up and used them. How some people can be that stupid is beyond me?

The Article posted says a .22 caliber pistol. and an AR-15 rifle, the owners of which are unknown.

So how can either family member have been shot with a .22 rifle ? There wasn't one? According to this article the owners of the weapons are unknown, sounds like it wasn't from his house.

Officials say there were four guns at the Griego home, all stored in the parent’s bedroom closet which was left unlocked.

The boy, armed with an assault weapon, then waited downstairs for four hours until his father, Greg Griego, returned home. The teen then shot his father multiple times before taking off in the family van with the AR-15, a .22-caliber rifle, two shotguns and extra ammunition.

This is what the local news is reporting. I can only go by that.

Something just doesn't seem right when you line it all up. The batman movie one, Sandy, Texas (Which was a day ago or today actually?) and then this? Seems like If this indeed is being done by the government then they are trying to get the public in a state of fear so that several things can be done to lock the nation down. Or the Mayans were on to something about a shift in consciousness...
