Lawyer: Md. School Shooting Suspect Was Bullied

At 6:27 a.m. on his first day as a sophomore at Perry Hall High School in the Baltimore suburbs, Robert Wayne Gladden Jr. updated his Facebook status.

"First day of school, last day of my life," he wrote. He then typed a symbol resembling a person with two middle fingers extended before adding "f--- the world."

Gladden, a pale youth with long, dark hair who turned 15 just three weeks ago, has been charged as an adult in the shooting of a 17-year-old classmate, who was hit in the back with a shotgun blast in the school's cafeteria Monday morning. The victim, Daniel Borowy, remained in critical condition Tuesday afternoon.

So are millions of other people who don't go around shooting their bullies.

Cute little girl.

Mom & Dad failed this child somewhere along the line. A hair cut would be the first thing to accomplish. Language would be the next thing to take care (of course, the parents probably have the same limited vocabulary). So sad that another life has been lost to the prison system. My prayer is that the 17-year old victim will fully recover and still be the positive light in Perry Hall high school.

They failed him hughly 1:25. Just look up the records on case search. His real father has the same name.
