sirtom93 arrested - TL;DR edition

Posted by Rig - March 17th, 2009


In the press:

By the way, you media folks, Newgrounds is not a social networking website. It's an animation and music website, the first of its kind, and still the best one around.

"Shame Deckheadtottie isn't getting more recognition in the media. He was the one who called sirtom93's school and that seemed to be the action that really got the ball rolling to stop sirtom93. I believe deckheadtottie also relayed the most information about sirtom93 to the police and the school." - Wade Fulp
This is true. Someone talk to him.

Press Association, #2
BBC Article, #2
Norwich Evening News, #2 (mentions deckheadtottie!), #3, #4 (my interview)
Yahoo! News
EDP24, #2, #3
The Sun
Mail Online
Telegraph
Mercury 24

You know what, there are too many articles out there for me to catalogue them all. Google it. lol

I've been interviewed by too many media outlets to remember. deckheadtottie has talked with the Diss Express and Global.

March 18th

Tom was able to make a few phone calls from prison. He said that he never intended to do it, that he brought the knife, matches, and supposedly flammable liquid into school to show off or something.
DON'T SAY YOU'RE GONNA TRY TO BURN A SCHOOL DOWN IF YOU DON'T ACTUALLY TRY TO BURN A SCHOOL DOWN.

May 30th
I got an unconfirmed report that he's being held in a "secure psychiatric unit".

Early March, 2010
Preliminary hearings begin.

November 2010
He's been tried, charged, and is staying in a secure hospital unit. He won't be released until approved by a medical board.

Hope he gets better.

Thanks God.

I liked Sirtom93. Too bad he had to be all "I HATE MY SCHOOL AND EVERYONE IN IT EXREMIST TIME"

pwnd

LoLz, I contributed something useful as well to da thread. ;D

Epic picture :D

Way to go guys!

Internet saves the day!

way to delete my epic first comment

I didn't delete any comments...

Wow, this is some serious stuff that I missed by being at school myself. At least the people who did see the thread took action quickly, good job! I hope Tom makes a front page post about this, it's a very unique story.

once again the internet saves teh day from cat abusers and apparently pyromaniacs.

It's a shame sirtom's news posts require him to approve comments before they're posted. Otherwise it would have many a 'YOU GON' GET RAPED' comment at this moment in time.

Wow, who knew NG could be used for good.

Thanks for that!

Added already ;)

Well done to you and deckheadtottie for being man enough to actually call the police about this. Nice to see that not everyone will stand by and just let this shit happen.

I need to ask though, was it not awkward speaking to the police, did you have problems getting them to take you seriously?

No, they were very serious and helpful. I had more trouble getting my message through clearly, due to my crappy connection. :P

I came in late and only just read the thread when I could've just read the TL;DR and got in on it faster...

Whyyyyyyy?

Fael?

Rofl! Love the picture

But really, who knew? Good thing we have a responsible (or somewhat XP) site here, or else this could have gotten ugly.

Finally, one of those pictures is relevant. GO RIG and Team NG

Yay for responsibility!

Fucking win.

For Shizzle.

oh lawd!

i kno rite?
