That’s One Way to Get Teenage Girls to Notice You

posted by on January 25 at 12:39 PM

Authorities have charged a teenage boy who said he planned to hijack a commercial jetliner in an attempt to commit suicide, an FBI spokesman told CNN late Thursday…. “His stated intent was to hijack the airplane and commit suicide,” said George Bolds, an FBI spokesman in Memphis, Tennessee. “He did indicate he intended to die in Louisiana. It appears he had a ticket to Louisiana.”

Bolds said the boy indicated he had lived in Louisiana.

The teen wanted to crash the plane into a Hannah Montana concert in Lafayette, Louisiana, two CNN television affiliates in Nashville, WSMV and WTVF, reported, citing unnamed sources. The concert is scheduled for Friday night at the Lafayette Cajundome.

Having a ten year old daughter in my house, I can say authoritatively that Hannah Montana *is* bigger than Jesus.

But, Dan, was he a Muslim?

Dude, what asshole stopped him? I can think of no better target for a hijacked jetliner.

Had he managed to pull it off, legions of fathers would have thanked him silently.

that's one hell of a way to die in order to meet lots of virgins.

The men don't know, but the little girls understand. Hannah Montana is AWESOME.

@4 With the obvious exception of the fathers of the fans at that concert.

@7. i don't know, they'd be put out of their misery. and the thanks would be silent...

Whilst he may be otherwise unhinged, the perp has crystal clear musical tastes and should be seriously considered as a music reviewer for this publication.

Interesting, if he'd been a Muslim American, this would have been Terrorism; regardless of his mental state. But since he's a nice (albeit disturbed) (White)(Christian) boy we'll see how long the Felony Terrorism charges stick.

If he had succeeded, who would've led the first dance at the purity ball?

Talk about crashing a concert.

Man, I would have paid to see that!

"Cajundome"...awesome! They should get together with Wingdome...

i think the real message is to stay away from those hannah montana concerts.

Hannah Montana makes a lot of people feel homicidal/suicidal which should scotch any insanity defense this boy's lawyers come up with.

Posted by Y.F. | January 25, 2008 3:59 PM

Uh, you losers are hating Hannah Montana at your peril, you realize that?
