This auction is for a letter from Heath High School shooter Mr. Michael Carneal. High school is can be a difficult place for some kids, it was particularly rough for young Carneal. Being over weight and socially awkward, he was bullied by many of his classmates. In this day and age his tormentors would have been guilty under bullying laws, they would be the criminals in this story. But this incident didn't happen last week. On 12/1/1997, while suffering a mental breakdown, Carneal shot eight of his classmates, three would later die as a result of their injuries. He was 14-years-old at the time. Carneal accepted a plea agreement and was sentenced to 25 years to life imprisonment. In 1999, the parents of the victims elected to sue Carneal, internet pornography websites, video game manufacturers, film companies, more than 50 defendants in total, blaming Carneal's activities on their influence. This is true now, one calm was Carneal's proficient marksmanship was due to practice in violent video games. At the end of the day the parent's won $42 million dollars, but the judgement was against Carneal alone, all the other defendants were dismissed. Carneal is serving his sentence in a Kentucky state prison. He becomes eligible for parole in 2023.
