Dollopween 11: Once Upon a Crime: Fatal Kids

Podcast and Podcaster: Once Upon a Crime: Fatal Kids Chapter 3: Brenda Spencer , Esther

Why I chose this one: Well, full disclosure, Esther is my friend.

Also, before Brenda Spencer, we had no concept of kids shooting other kids at school. None. Brenda and 1979 changed everything, and taught America a new fear. Even creepier: her demeanor upon her capture and arrest, and her reason given for the shooting.

Fear your neighbors.

Trick or treat.

Tori Amos’ cover of the song about Brenda by the Boomtown Rats:

And nobody’s gonna go to school today, she’s going to make them stay at home
And daddy doesn’t understand it, he always said she was as good as gold
And he can see no reason, ’cause there are no reasons…
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays, I want to shoot the whole day down
