Also, it might be fair to say he feels little remorse. Neutral

Quote :
Lane has not given a motive for the shootings, which rocked the tiny town 30 miles outside Cleveland. He gave only a short, defiant statement in the courtroom on Tuesday: "This hand that pulled the trigger that killed your sons now masturbates to the memory. F--- all of you."

"This hand that pulled the trigger that killed your sons now masturbates the giant black cocks of my cellmates."

I'd say he should have gotten the death penalty, but honestly I just hope he gets raped repeatedly until he hangs himself.

lol!

Yesterday we saw the whole TJ Lane thing on the news and I was quoting you, Lifetime to my friend and he laughed his ass of. And I am not a big fan of the death penalty, but I am almost concidering changing my view on that mather, just for TJ Lane....What an asshole!!

That is funny. It is horrible what he did, but I find it hard to defend people like him. Imagine if Eric and Dylan didn't commit suicide would my own perceptions of them match up with what I expect. Chances are I probably would be wrong.

I admit when I read this it made me think if either Eric or Dylan would have pulled a similar kind of courtroom stunt or not or how they would have behaved if they had have been caught alive Question

In reference to T.J Lane though I was wondering why know one told him to cover up his little home made t-shirt, apparently according to the judge "Fuhry said he was unaware of the shirt, as Lane spent most of the hearing with his back to him while listening to victims' families. Had he noticed it, Fuhry said he would have stopped the proceedings and forced Lane "to put on proper attire."

I also wondered why he was allowed to wear that shirt.

I think TJ hardened in prison. I think he's worse now than he was when he opened fire.

I guess his 'look at all the fuck I give' twat-ish behaviour is going to attract more troubled teenagers if it isn't happened already.
Brace yourself, bad fanfictions are coming.

Am I looking for remorse where there is none? Don't get me wrong: the shirt, the statement, flipping the bird, the smiling while the families spoke, I am horrified. But it all looked so fake to me. I thought it looked like he was fake smiling so he didn't cry. And this big bad statement about this hand that pulled the trigger, trying to come off like some kind of badass, he just squeaked it out really quickly.

I'm sure that the victims families' disagree, but as an outsider, the whole thing looked more pathetic than anything. Seemed to me like he regretted something - maybe not his actions, but at least the fact that he's facing the consequences.

Or maybe I'm just short on sleep and need to go to bed. Which I'm going to do, right now.

I haven't fully studied the case.... what were the motives behind his actions and his behavior/treatment in schools beforehand?

There is not motive, for my knowledge. When a police-officer asked T.J. why he did this (directly after the shooting), T.J. answered: "I dont know".
Other students reported him as "just a normal teenager".

We know the following things based on student testimony:

1. He was bullied.
2. He was not bullied.

Hope that helps.

T.J. Lane himself told police: "I have no problems with people."

Lane is such a stunt queen.
If you're going to 'advertise' that you're a total waste of a perfectly good social security number, at least be creative like this guy:

Haha Smile

I refrained from watching the video of his outburst for a while, i'd seen the pictures and the quote / description of what happened, but when I did watch it to me he looks like he's about to cry or something after the "famous" quote has been said. Anyone else feel like this?

Complete agree. Like I said in an earlier post, I don't know if he genuinely feels bad for what he did or if he has just realized that he is going to spend the rest of his life locked up as some dude's bitch (coz I hate to admit it, but the boy sure is pretty), but I really think the whole stunt was a last-ditch attempt at saving face.

Someone will probably rip on me for this, but I actually felt bad for him. I can't imagine being a young adult facing what he's facing, no matter what I did.

I know what you're saying, I also felt like he probably knew fine well what was going to happen to him. I think he was very aware he would be on T.V and probably wanted to look bad-ass, he would have been aware of the media repercussions of his words and behavior. I don't really believe his whole 'I don't care' attitude, I could be completely wrong but it's just a feeling I have. I think he will realize very quickly how awful the consequences of his actions are going to be and the kind of attitude he has displayed very likely won't go down well inside.

I think someone mentioned this before but I think prison will change him dramatically.

I feel bad for anyone going to that kind of environment at his age, regardless of what they've done. It's going to turn that boy into a man, I'm just not sure what kind of man. I hate to think what will happen to him inside.

They actually haven't shown anything about him or this case where I live so I have only seen bits and pieces from the internet. I agree with what people have said, I think it was a last attempt to look bad-ass, knowing full well how he's going to be *ahem* received in jail.

Poor kid.

I recently read this guys article, it's in the form of a letter to T.J, it's an interesting read and he makes some great points. Some of the responses are very upfront and honest, possibly a sign of things to come...

Also here is a prison booking photo and some information about where he will spend his time.

Coincidentally a prison documentary has just come on the T.V

Thanks for the articles, queenfarooq. The first article had some interesting comments, particularly those by people who claimed to have been in prison. I have a good friend who spent 3 years in prison, and I'm sure her experience as a female was different than males have, as well as the fact that lifers are in a whole different game. But the main thing she told me about her time in prison - the boredom was the worst part.

I found a link under the second article saying that T.J. Lane's half brother died in November. It really doesn't give much additional information, but my heart goes out to T.J.'s family. The killer's family never gets any compassion, but they deserve it.

Here's the link:

I didn't know about his brother, thanks for the info.

Don't know if you guys have seen this but its a video of T.J Lane's defense attorney and younger sister speaking about him. I believe it is his grandparents in the background also.

And he's appealing...

Makes me wonder if we will see another video of him in the near future attempting to excuse his previous courtroom behavior and apologizing to the victims families...

Yeah, if you're planning to appeal you probably should not act like a total dick to the families of your victims and wear a "Killer" shirt to your sentencing. I can't imagine that there is enough groveling in the world to excuse that.

However, it looks like they may try to appeal on "procedural errors", in which case I don't think it matters how he acts. There weren't any details on what those errors might have been though. Be interesting to watch. That whole courtroom stunt got me really interested in T.J.'s crime and case, I'll be curious to see how it goes.

I've actually considered writing him, which is a first for me. Never exchanged mail with a killer before, lol. But I thought it might be worth it to see if he can give any insight into what was going on in his head. And like I said earlier, I do kinda feel sorry for the kid.

I've gotta admire the balls of steel on that kid. Just saying. I wish him good luck surviving prison.

He is a fellow prisoner of Ohio after all.

Thanks for the memories.

Wounded victim to sue the Lane family (this is probably more further along now as the article is from 17th May)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"At the scene, officers confirmed that the weapon used by T.J. Lane had been taken by him from the home. During the search, officers found over fifty firearms scattered throughout the home, none of which were properly secured or stored. The weapons were found laying [sic] throughout the home in an open manner either loaded or in close proximity to ammunition. No effort had been taken by defendants, Daniel Lane, Thomas Lane or Michelle Lane to secure the weapons from others, including minor, T.J. Lane. T.J. Lane had easy access to these weapons and ammunition when he selected this firearm for the planned shooting the next day." Emphasis mine.

Interesting dialogue between Lane and Officer after shooting:

Skranjer, M. (2012, November 06) The News-Herald

Quote :
...First asked Lane if he was the only one involved.

"There's no one else. It's just me," Lane replied.

"What happened?" Bilicic then asked.

"I shot people," Lane said.

"Why?" Bilicic said.

"I don't know," Lane replied.

He was asked if he had any interactions with one of the victims.

"No. He was just in my class. Didn't really talk too much," Lane said

Vetter also asked Lane if he thought he killed anyone.

"I hope not. I just fired so fast and random. I have no idea if anyone even fell or said anything," Lane said. "I wish there was something I could say to take it back, go back in time."

A more recent news article and appeal to life sentence documents. : [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

EDIT:This doesn't really have any relevance to the case but I don't know if anyone has seen the more recent picture of TJ floating around the internet, he looks pretty dreadful. Aside from the attempted tattoo he was supposed to be caught trying to give himself, I've read a couple of different reports stating that he has tried to self harm.

Yes, he looks awful in the last picture I saw. I'm sure things are not easy on him. However from what I've heard on tumblr, he has been nothing but hateful to his "fangirls" and has actually given their letters to registered sex offenders. Makes me feel a lot less sorry for him. (Although it occurs to me that this may a good lesson for them. I don't care that they have written him, but when a 14-year-old obsesses over a killer and says she wants to have his babies, I worry.)
