Christopher Clancy (who may or may not have been conceived on the Red October) used six cans of gasoline to set his former high school ablaze and cause over $1.3 million in damages, all while rocking a sweet Joker costume and videotaping the act with his cell phone. Somebody get this man on the honor roll!
He smashed in a glass door and proceeded to spill the contents of one can along the corridor. He then lit the petrol and escaped from the school.
"He was dressed up as The Joker from 'Batman'," said Gda Ganny. "He then told us to go around the corner and we would see what he had done."
He purchased the jerry cans over a five-week period and hid them in the bushes near the school. He bought 100 litres of petrol from a nearby petrol station.
He told gardai: "I am glad I did it because the people will realise they can't treat students as sub-human."
The judge in the case called this a "one-off incident," and seemed inclined to be lenient - she ordered Clancy to get medical help and postponed sentencing until October. Clancy is currently planning to attend the Dun Laoghaire College of Art and Design in September.
Medical help and postponed sentencing?! Why didn't I set my high school on fire?! Because I was home-schooled and wouldn't have had a place to live? I know, I know, I should've done it anyways.
Thanks to [S]d:G, who dressed as Mr. Freeze and froze his middle school for getting made fun of when he could only do two pull-ups in gym.
