PostSubject: Teens cleared of Columbine-style plot   Wed Sep 16, 2009 1:18 pm

Two teenagers have been cleared of plotting a Columbine-style massacre at their own school.

Matthew Swift, 18, and Ross McKnight, 16, were facing possible life sentences for the alleged plan to murder teachers and pupils in a killing spree at Audenshaw High School, Greater Manchester.

But after deliberating for just 45 minutes the jury at Manchester Crown Court rejected prosecution claims the teenagers had become obsessed with the Columbine killers in the US.

In the 1999 case, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold murdered 12 students and a teacher and then killed themselves at their high school in Colorado.

It was alleged Swift and McKnight were plotting a similar rampage. It was also claimed Swift had tried to get his hands on explosives and was researching how to make firearms from home.

But the defence told the jury the journals were merely the teenage scribblings of two youngsters with over-active imaginations which never went beyond the realms of "fantasy".

They've gotta be really stupid if they were researching the making of explosives from their own internet connections and have it tracked back to them.
