I don’t have any, no. I’ve seen them around, though.
Despite being regarded as a loner and an oddball amongst his peers at Revere High School, Dahmer nonetheless became something of a cult figure among some students due to the pranks he was known to regularly stage: some of which were done to amuse his classmates; others apparently to simply attract attention. These pranks became known as “Doing a Dahmer” and included bleating, faking epileptic seizures, mocking invalids, and knocking over items both at school and at local stores.
The Olean High School shooting was a school shooting that occurred on December 30, 1974 at Olean High School in Olean, New York, United States. The gunman, 17-year-old Anthony F. Barbaro, an honor student and member of the school’s rifle team, indiscriminately shot at people on the street from windows at the third floor of the school building. Three people were killed and another 11 people were injured during the shooting.
In a note explaining his motives Anthony Barbaro wrote:
"I guess I just wanted to kill the person I hate most — myself, I just didn’t have the courage. I wanted to die, but I couldn’t do it, so I had to get someone to do it for me. It didn’t work out."
On November 1, 1975, Barbaro hanged himself in his prison cell at the Cattaraugus County Jail.
This is his suicide note:
"People are not afraid to die, it’s just how they die. I don’t fear death, but rather the pain. But no more. I regret the foods I’ll never taste, the music I’ll never hear, the sites I’ll never see, the accomplishments I’ll never accomplish, in other words, I regret my life. Some will always ask, ‘Why?’ I don’t know — no one will. What has been, can’t be changed. I’m sorry. It ends like it began; in the middle of the night, someone might think it selfish or cowardly to take one’s own life. Maybe so, but it’s the only free choice I have. The way I figure, I lose either way. If I’m found not guilty, I won’t survive the pain I’ve caused — my guilt. If I’m convicted, I won’t survive the mental and physical punishment of my life in prison."
