Ohio Teen T.J. Lane Kills 3, Injures 3, and Shows Us Just How Little He Cares

T.J. Lane is a teen from Ohio that was given a life sentence for killing three students and wounding three in February. The shooting took place at Chardon High School, which he attended. Lane pleaded guilty and received his sentence without the possibility of parole.

18 year old, Lane shot students in the high school cafeteria. In addition to the sadness and frustration of his actions, there is no known motive at this time.


After Lane bolted from the school, Sheriff's Deputy Jon Bilicic found him seated along Woodin Road, about a mile away. Lane told the officer that he had just shot a lot of people. When Bilicic asked him why, he said, "I don't know." 

At another point when asked why, he said, "I don't really understand myself."

On the day of sentencing, Lane unbuttoned his over-shirt to reveal a white shirt with the hand-written and black-marked word, Killer, across it.

Per, Lane turned to parents and members of the courtroom to make a brief statement.
Lane uttered the most foul and evil remark I've heard to date. "The hand that pulled the trigger that killed your sons now masturbates to the memory. Fuck all of you."

Killed were Parmertor, 16; Demetrius Hewlin, 16; and Russell King Jr., 17. Walczak, Nate Mueller and Joy Rickers were wounded. Nate and Joy were treated and released shortly after the shootings.

No doubt, Lane is a sociopath, more accurately known as Anti-Social Personality Disorder. Personality disorders are thought be psychologists to be untreatable as they are characterologic disorders, which is to suggest that they are ingrained into who they are. It is not something that can be managed like Schizophrenia, Bipolar and other mental diagnoses.

Lane wanted the fame and he got it. I have no problem posting information about him as I think it is important to recognize that personality disorders exist. Most with Anti-Social Personality Disorder, do not have the insight into their illness and it is not something they seek to treat. How exactly do you treat evil? Yes, that puts a religious spin on it, but sometimes illness is a word that just doesn't cut it.
