142 pupils, 36 teachers already massacred in satanic-music-linked events worldwide:
Over the past decade, worldwide 142 pupils and 36 teachers have already been massacred in similar events at schools, inevitably linked to the multi-billion-dollar music industry which promotes Heavy-Metal music and -videogames. The American band SLIPNOT - which the youth had been listening to for the past five month - is appearing in Germany this month to introduce their latest release, "No Hope left".
SLIPKNOT ALSO LINKED TO OTHER DEATH:
In 2003 the same band, Slipknot 's music was also linked to the killing of a man in the USA. Jason Lamar Harris, 23, was convicted with girlfriend Amber Rose Riley of luring and killing their friend Terry Ray Taylor at a California park while they were listening to a Slipknot CD called 'Disasterpiece' - which has lyrics discussing slitting a victim's throat... Malaysia has curbed heavy-metal music, recognising its dangers several years ago: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/1473198.stm
20 August 2008. Krugersdorp, South Africa. A berserker-pupil, 18, named as Morné Harmse and wearing a mask similar to those worn by the satanic heavy-metal band "Slipknot", showed up with a number of samurai-swords at the Diederichs Technical High School in Krugersdorp on Monday-morning Aug 18 2008.
He then slashed to death 15-year-old pupil Jacques Pretorius, left, and injured three others with his blunt sword. Harmse did not know the younger boy he'd killed. He had told a a friend just before he slashed at young Pretorius' neck with a samurai sword: "Do you want to see something cool?' And then the blood spurted.
Morné Harmse had apparently been trying to get others to join in his 'satanic crusade' and had shown up at the school before with a friend, wearing various masks from the Slipknot bands.
Two black employees injured while saving pupil from death:
One of the three surviving victims, Stephan Bouwer, 18, left, said the school's employees Joseph Kodisang and Sam Namamela were also injured when they leapt in front of him when the attacker tried to hack at him for a third time. Bouwer had already had been hit on the leg with the flat surface of the sword. The attacker had struck as Stephan turned to flee after hearing other pupils screaming. "Why are you hitting me?" Stephan shouted and heard the armed boy laughing "with a strange sound in his voice". Next, the almost 60cm-long blade sliced through his scalp, cutting it open to the bone. "I held my head and could feel myself bleeding. I knew I had to get away," Stephan said.
The attacker kept taunting him and moved forward, seemingly intent on causing more harm. It was then that the two workers jumped in front of Stephan, Kodisang getting a blow to the cheek in the process. Stephan said of the attacker: "I can't believe it was him. He was always so diligent, never smoked or misbehaved at school." http://www.news24.com/News24/South_Africa/News/0,,2-7-1442_2379007,00.html
"The music of Slipknot changed him...' said his friend
20/08/2008 Johannesburg - The 18-year-old matric pupil who allegedly killed a fellow pupil with a sword on Monday, had envisaged a bloodbath.
One of his friends, Shaun Collins, 17, a Grade-12 pupil at Nic Diederichs Technical High School in Krugersdorp, spoke on Tuesday about how the schoolboy had told him and other friends what he planned to do.
"He wanted to wait until the children assembled in the hall and then kill them. "He used the word 'massacre'; I understood he meant a bloodbath."
Minutes before the assembly began, the schoolboy put on a Slipknot-mask, pulled out a samurai sword and slashed open 16-year-old Jacques Pretorius's carotid artery.
He then walked around the school and apparently injured three other people - two workers Sam Namamela, 43, Joseph Kodisang, 26, and a Grade-11 pupil Stephan Bouwer, 18.
Shaun told on Tuesday evening how he and his group of friends had seen the teenager "losing it". Shortly after Shaun arrived at school at about 07:10, three of his friends came to him and said the boy's "head isn't right". He was already wearing his mask - similar to the one worn by Corey Taylor, the lead singer of the heavy metal band Slipknot.
Bomb in his right hand... He was rearranging three swords, including a smallish Katana and a Sekizo Ninja sword, in his belt, and putting on gloves. He had apparently made the mask about three weeks before the attack. "At first we thought he was joking but then we saw a bomb in his right hand." It is believed he had been making bombs since last year. We kept our distance the whole time because we were really scared of him. I told him to put down the bomb but he refused.
Hacked a 15-year-old pupil to death... "I took the bomb from his hand and threw it away. It didn't do anything. "The whole time he was speaking with a weird voice, almost like the Joker's voice in Batman. "He also kept saying things like, 'Today I'm going to do it. Today is the massacre.'" Shaun said the boy then insisted that Max Brechlin, 18, also put on a mask. The next moment he turned to Shaun and said, "Do you want to see something cool?" He then pulled out his sword and Jacques - who happened to be walking past with a group of pupils - was hacked to death.
- "That sword was as blunt as a butter knife. I couldn't believe the force with which he struck. It was a very deep wound," Shaun said. The pupils of his eyes apparently looked "smaller than usual". Shaun said he had noticed earlier that the pupil had two other masks in his school bag: a gas mask and a clown mask, similar to those worn by other members of Slipknot. Shaun and his friends also made similar masks and wore them at school on two occasions.
"I was very interested in Slipknot. The drummer is amazing; I would like to be able to play like him one day. But after I saw my friend? It's as if the music had changed him. I think about it very differently now," Shaun said.
The suspect appeared in Krugersdorp Magistrate's Court on a charge of murder and three charges of attempted murder, his friend Max has been exonerated of all charges.
Harmse family: 'Our son was always bullied because he was small and frail"
Aug 21 2008 . The family of Morné Harmse said in its public statement of 'deep regret and sympathy' to the family of the murdered boy, Jacques Pretorius that their son has always suffered a tremendous amount of physical and mental bullying at school because he has 'always been much smaller than others his age'.
They did not know that he had been 'experimenting with satanism', they added -- urged all parents to have 'very close talks' with their children 'to make sure everything is still allright' in this regard.
The family 's statement, published by the Afrikaans-daily Beeld, says:
"We want to convey our deepest sympathy and empathy to the family of Jacques Pretorius. We realise your most precious possession has been taken from you because of our son's deed. We are deeply sorry and wish we could change it.'
"Our Morné is physically small and frail for his age-group. And he has been bullied throughout his lifetime because of this. We stood up for him whereever we could and also approached the bullies about their behaviour whenever we could. Until Monday-morning we never realised however, that he could ever be capable of such a thing (violence). We are a closeknit, loving family and raise our children with strict but loving rules.'
He felt so helpless and useless he wanted to take a stand
"Until Monday-morning when we visited him (in police jail), we never realised the truly devastating impact of this physical and emotional bullying he has had to endure throughout his life.
He wanted to scare them, but never to kill:
"He explained to us that he felt so helpless and useless that he wanted to take a stand. He went to school with the intention to 'scare them and hurt them' but he'd never intended to kill anyone. He wanted to express his built-up frustrations and his feelings of helplessness. He wanted to be somebody.
"From birth, Morné was physically small and we got to know him as someone who was quiet and compliant. We deeply regret that we have now had to discover that Morné experimented with satanism and that this had given him the impression that he could draw some form of power from this which would protect him (from his bullies). "His words to us were: 'When I put on the mask, everything became dead-quiet and my body moved. I wanted to stop, but could not.'
He was also under tremendous pressure not to fail his matric-examination -- although he'd never failed any -- he feared failure. Our child was still very confused when we saw him in the police cells and we noticed that he only realised by Tuesday-morning that he had actually killed someone, as he was unable to remember the event at all. Two lives have now been destroyed because of this terrible event.'
"We also call on all the parents to have very intense talks with their children to make certain everything is still in order with them. One often tends to ascribe certain personality-changes to the physical changes in a teenager's body, but this is clearly not always the case.'
"We plead with you to please also pray for us, the Pretorius family and everyone who support us. We beg people not to judge us. Please allow us the time to pick up our shattered lives.'
CHILDREN KILLING CHILDREN
This is just one more piece of evidence that 'heavy-metal satanic' musical influences are also leading to increasingly aggressive behaviour among youths worldwide - in which 142 pupils and 36 teachers have already been slaughtered in countries all over the world -- local youth-organisation leaders in Krugersdorp now say. Children worldwide, are increasingly killing each other.
US man also killed in 2003 while listening to Slipknot CD "
This not the first time that the Slipknot-band has been linked to a murder. As was reportedby journalist: jberry@PE.com of the Press-Enterprise newspaper in San Bernardino County, an appeal is also being heard on August 29, 2008 of the 50-years-to-life sentence of Jason Lamar Harris,photo, 26, who with girlfriend Amber Rose Riley was convicted of luring their friend Terry Ray Taylor, 21, to his death after listening to the heavy-metal band SLIPKNOT in 2003. The appeal is being heard at the San Bernardino County Superior Court .
According to The Press-Enterprise newspaper, Jason Lamar Harris (photo), now 25, was sentenced to a 50-year-to-life term in the late-night stabbing of friend Terry Ray Taylor, 21, on May 23, 2003. A previous prosecutor in the case, Doug Poston, said at a 2004 court hearing that Harris and co-defendant Amber Rose Riley, 21, were listening to a SLIPKNOT CD before and after they killed Taylor at San Bernardino's Perris Hill Park.
They particularly listened to "Disasterpiece", which has lyrics discussing slitting a victim's throat, Poston said. Amber Riley also admitted during the trial to watching a horror movie titled "Satan's School for Girls" before the later slaying, Poston said. One motive for the killing was Riley's desire to see a dead body, the prosecutor said. http://www.pe.com/localnews/inland/stories/PE_News_Local_S_thrillweb.294fdf9.html

142 pupils, 36 teachers massacred in satanic-music-linked violence past 12 years:
Violent video-games, intensely violent heavy-metal music with hatespeech-lyrics run like a red thread through the past decade's massacres at schools in the USA and in other parts of the world -- where scholars influenced by these violent scenes and -speec slaughter their colleagues and teachers in abandoned orgies of violence.One pupil, Luke Woodham, slaughtered his own mother and two children in 1996 - influenced by a satanic group called The Kroth. He testified after his massacre at Pearl High School in Mississippi that Satanism 'had given him special powers'.
And 55 similar incidents linked to satanic music and groups occurred worldwide, in which 142 pupils and 36 teachers were massacred -- eleven in countries such as Scotland, Germany, Yemen, The Netherlands, Canada and Argentinia.
The fear for school-massacres has grown so much that the Harrold-school district in Texas USA took the decision in August 2008 to allow teachers to carry firearms in the classrooms.
Experts have been warning for the past twelve years after the first massacres, that exposure of emotionally-vulnerable youngsters to sudden scenes of violence and hatespeech triggers violence in children, especially if they are loners and/or are being bullied. http://www.news24.com/Beeld/Wereld/0,,3-71_2378383,00.html
Many experts also believe that the multi-billion dollar satanic music-scene has been able to get such a firm grip on the worldwide youth culture mainly because of the breakdown in the bonds between parents and children due to the collapse of the traditional family unit: parents, by divorcing so frequently, have thus also been relinquishing their own authority and control over the entire next generation. The children are left to their own devices, without parental guidance.
The headmaster of the Diederichs school said Tuesday that most of these pupils 'come from broken homes and have adjustment problems'. http://www.telegraaf.nl/vrouw/actueel/1723690/__Vaders_vergeten_ouderlijk_gezag_te_regelen__.html
