Yesterday a 14-year-old student entered Dunbarton High School in Pickering, Ontario, and attacked 9 people with a knife. The student identifies as “gender-fluid,” and so we have attempted to avoid the error made by most other news sources, which by-and-large refer to the attacker using female nouns and pronouns.
Prior to the attack, the attacker made a number of posts to a tumblr account explicitly foreshadowing the attack. Although these posts have since been redacted from the feed by whomever now has custody of the account, the internet never forgets.
As your primary source for uncensored national news about teen angst on the internet, Obscene Works has secured a clean scrape of the attacker’s front page as it appeared prior to the attacks.
The posts from the feed drop a litany of obvious clues as to the attacker’s intentions. They also paint a picture of a child who experiences zero support from their own parents, even when openly contemplating assault with a deadly weapon.
I’m kinda shaking and freaking out right now because I really want to go to school tomorrow with knives and just hurt and kill as many people as I can. That’s not normal and I don’t know what to do. I’m pretty panicked.
Why can’t I just be normal?
I hate not knowing what to do anymore. My mom thinks calling the police is too over the top for my problem. Like, I’m literally planning to go on a stabbing spree at school tomorrow. The hell am I meant to do? Just casually wait for it to happen? I’m not so sure that will go over too well with the police.
Based on my research the best I can hope for is getting sent to jail for years and hoping for parole. Probably won’t happen. What I’d REALLY love is to die. But Canada apparently doesn’t have death sentences. Maybe I can get the police to shoot and kill me at the school when they show up. That would be nice.
It feels strange to think of myself as a soon-to-be school stabber. I’d heard of school shooters, and always thought “that would never be me!”. Well, I’m not a shooter, but a stabber isn’t much better. I’ll continue to suffer until I can die. I’ll never be okay, I’m too far gone. All I want is to kill now. I’d actually like to have a gun to shoot. It would be easier to kill people with. But I guess a knife will do.
I’ve tried to kill myself in the past to prevent this. I knew this would happen. I just knew something would go wrong. But I think it’s too late to prevent now. There’s nothing I can do. I’ll be hated for the rest of my life, by others and by myself. Nobody likes those who try to kill people. I wonder if this is what insanity is like. But insane people don’t know they’re insane, right? So I can’t be insane. Just frustrated and depressed.
I never wanted this. I just wanted to be normal. But I don’t think I’ll get the chance now.
There’s a train track near where I live. Just something for me to consider if I don’t go through with the school stabbing on Tuesday (assuming I even go to school Tuesday)
I’m going to commit a high school stabbing today. I’m not coming back.

While the identity of the attacker remains something of an intentional mystery, the associated Tumblr account does give some tantalizing clues, including a number of photos, which have, at the time of our publication, not been redacted.
