Teens charged in school attack plot
Two teenagers were charged with conspiring to attack a Long Island high school after a journal was found in which one teen identified several potential victims by name, authorities said.
“I will start a chain of terrorism in the world,” a 15-year-old suspected of planning the assault allegedly wrote in the journal, which led to his arrest. “This will go down in history. Take out everyone there. Perfecto.”
Both teens were charged with misdemeanor conspiracy, punishable by up to a year in jail. Authorities said the two planned to attack Connetquot High School in Bohemia, about 50 miles east of New York City.
