Mi. Teen Charged In Columbine-Like School Plan


Andrew Osantowski, accused of threatening a Columbine-style rampage in a Clinton Township, Mi. high school, laid out plans and spewed anger toward schoolmates, family, and minorities in a series of cyber rants sent to a teenage girl in Washington state, says the Detroit News. “I can't even take going to school,” he told her. “(I'm) bullied, made fun of, pushed, people can get away with murder. Vengeance is a bitch.” The comments were from the screen name “nazi_bot_sadistic,” who authorities say is Osantowski. Osantowski, 17, is being held on a $1.3 million bond, charged with 10 felonies, including threatening an act of terrorism, and concealing stolen firearms.

Police found in his home a picture of Hitler, Nazi books, and a swastika flag behind the tiles of his basement ceiling. Andrew's father, Marvin Osantowski, was charged with five felonies, including concealing stolen firearms. He is a church usher and an auto worker on disability from DaimlerChrysler. Prosecutors said Marvin Osantowski was helping his son hide the weapons police found in the family's home, including an AK-47, two rifles, bomb-making devices, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, and hunting knives.
