A shooter wore a "killer" T-shirt while in court on March 19. According to NBC News, T.J. Lane, 18, wore a white T-shirt with the word "KILLER" written across the front of it, similar to what he wore when he opened fire at his school's bus stop in Ohio. Lane was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, something he evidently found amusing given the smirk on his face.
According to the report, Lane gave the middle finger to people in the courtroom, including friends and family members of the people that he shot and killed last February. He unbuttoned his blue collared shirt and revealed his embellished white T-shirt, which looks like it was handmade with the help of a black marker.
The shooter's "killer" T-shirt is now making news around the web. T.J. Lane obviously feels no remorse for killing three students and injuring three more. He did plead guilty but he isn't sorry -- in fact, he seems proud of his actions. After his sentencing, Lane gave a very brief statement to all who were listening.
"This hand that pulled the trigger that killed your sons now masturbates to the memory. F--- all of you (sic)," Lane said (via NBC News). As for thinking the kid is crazy, well obviously he isn't "normal" however, he isn't mentally ill and was actually set to graduate high school early.
The shooter wore his "killer" T-shirt and a smile as the victim's families read statements. A motive for his actions is still unknown.
