PostSubject: Russian school shooter gets off with 6 month therapy    Sun May 24, 2015 5:26 pm

Russia doesn't have high schools - it's usually all grades from 1st to 10th crowded in one 4-level building, sometimes in different parts of it or at different floors.

But a couple of years ago it have had its own share of a columbine-styled tragedy, ending in a teacher and a police officer being deadly shot by a teenager.

On February the 3rd 2014 Sergey Gordeyev, aged 15, has entered his school around 11:40 a.m. armed with Tikka T3 rifle and Browning BAR M1918 carbine, both weapons belonging to his father, both concealed under his mother's long fur coat which the boy wore for concealment.

Gordeyev held the school security officer at gunpoint, ordering him to let him through. He headed for his classroom, opened the door, entered it, and shot his geography teacher Andrey Kirillov, 29, twice: first time in the belly, second time in the head, when the man was already down and in severe pain from the first injury.

He then pointed his weapon at the classmates saying he doesn’t want to kill any of them (probably hinting at the fact that he, nevertheless, will if they provoke him). 5 minutes later two police officers arrived at the scene and tried entering the classroom to detain an armed teenager, but the perpetrator opened fire in response, hitting and wounding both of them. One of the officers, Sergey Bushuev would later die in the hospital. An hour later special forces and ambulances arrived at the school, also fire trucks and a helicopter of MChS. Gordeyev made 6 shots at the arriving help, but later surrendered, being talked down by his father.

Leter, Gordeyev would claim that he wanted to commit suicide, and that was his primary motive. He said he “didn’t know” why he shot his teacher who, according to the killer, started approaching him and thus provoked him. “I didn’t want to kill anyone, I wanted to die. I was curious what would happen after. What lies beneath death? I also wanted to see how people would react to what I’m doing. I came to kill myself. I had no conflicts with Andrey Nikolayevich [Kirillov], on the contrary – we were in good relations. He approached me, and I shot – I don’t even know why, maybe because nobody would believe that I’m capable of this”.

This winter Gordeyev was sentenced to 6 month in therapy for this cold blooded double murder on the basis that Sergey is clinically insane, and not a murderous young psychopath whom his own father taught how to shoot - he took Sergey to the shooting range since the boy could hold a rifle.

His father in an officer of FSB btw (read: KGB), so I guess if his son shot and killed a couple of civilians, it's no biggie.

I'll bet his father's influence influenced the short sentence and verdict. In my opinion he deserves more of a punishment than that, much more. If he only intended on killing himself why bring a rifle and carbine with you to school?

Who knows? Perhaps he is in fact mentally ill or even delusional? I don't have enough info to make an educated judgement.

He wore his mother's long fur coat to conceal his weapons. For some reason, that really caught my attention.

He's starting to remind me of Norman Bates, maybe he was going through a similar mindset to what Norman was going through in the original Psycho.
